Our 2004 Isuzu Rodeo has developed a coolant leak. The leak appears to be around or above a little panel or plate immediately behind the oil pan? Cannot find any other source. What is inside the littl


You will have to clarify behind the oil pan. Front of engine towards fan. Rear of engine transmission side. Or above the pan towards engine side. If there is coolant leaking from behind the engine (between the engine and trans) and is not running down from above eg head gasket or hose connection, chances are good that there is a frost plug leaking on the rear of the block.

I have gas in my oil on my honda 5.0 gc160


Check the engine compression with a compression tester. Most likely you have a blown head gasket.

Oil leak on driveway coming from front of engine


Dear Sir,
Here is the oil leaking Problem Identifying Technique

Engine oil leaks from the valve cover gasket are common.

  • The intake manifold plenum gasket may leak and cause increased oil consumption/burning and a spark knock during acceleration; the gasket should be replaced.
  • External oil leaks from valve cover gaskets, intake gaskets (front or rear), and the rear crankshaft (rear main) seal area are common. The rear main seal is an unlikely source. Normally, the bearing cap mating surfaces (as well as the sealing surface between the oil pan and bearing cap) are the source for the leaks.
  • Engine oil leaks at the distributor can be misdiagnosed as leaks from theintake manifold seal, oil pan gasket, or rear crankshaft (rear main) seal. A revised distributor is available if oil is found inside the distributor.
  • If the oil filter casing shows signs of distortion from excessive oil pressure, theoil pump should be replaced.
  • Often misdiagnosed as a leaking oil filter gasket, the oil filter adapter can seep from between the adapter and engine block.
  • Carbon buildup on the top of the piston is common. As the buildup increases with mileage and over time, symptoms may vary from light ticking, to ticking/hammering, to hammering/knocking noises. Fuel injector cleaner often solves the problem.

    I have a 1999 Chrysler 300m 3.5 that is leaking oil. There is no obvious source from the engine, though it is possible. The car overheated last year and I had the dealer replace water pump and timing...


    CK- Try a set of Valve Cover Gaskets. It cannot leak from the front cover area because it is where the timing belt rides and there is no entrance into the engine EXCEPT the front CAM SEAL... Remove the cover and look toward that seal behind the cam sprocket. If so it is also leaking down into the front cover and beyond. But look at the Valve cover gasket first, since you mention that source.

    Oil leak


    You have to differentiate whether the oil leak is from the engine or the tranny. After determining where the source, you must isolate the specific area; timing belt area, the middle-between the engine and the tranny. This can be cheaply determine by placing white piece of paper underneath the engine and observe the droppings of oil. Oil leak repair can be costly-especially an oil starved engine, so isolating the source is essential and tear-down might required.
    Due to the age of the vehicle, possible sources are the camshaft seal, crankshalf seal, oil pan gasket, crankshaft end seal,distributor o-ring, and valve cover gasket.
    In addition, other oil leaks can come the transmission, and power steering pump and rack'n'pinion. Best to raise the vehicle and inspect undercarriage of vehicle.

    clean your engine and look very carefully where the oil leak really come from, the cause why this leak happen, the engine was shutdown while the engine temperature is hot. usually the leak will come from the turbo. the engine must be idle for 3-5min before shutting off.

    Oil leak


    Sounds like the High Pressure Oil Pump mounting O seals. See if the soundproofing under the pump is soaked in oil to be sure.
