Well, I can tell you with certainty you got a lemon.....but seriously.....you know you could sue this person due to the "lemon law". Other than that....you have a bad seal....sort of hard to say where....looking at a pic of the motor right now....could be several places in the front...but the main one would be where your harmonic balancer is and that is a pain to reseal....gotta pull the motor to pull the timing chain cover off and reseal the front seal.

I have a 2000 mercury Cougar and I need help. One day while driving i heard a loud squeaking sound (like a belt) then the oil light came on, and the car died on me. Wouldn't start up until about 15 minutes later. The oil light was still on, and it was running really rough/noisy so I drove it to a gas station and checked the oil after the engine cooled down. The oil level was fine. So, I drove it to a friend's house nearby and got a ride home. Well, I took it to two different mechanic shops. One

I have a 99 2.0 litre VW Golf. My engine light came on 5 months ago. The code said that it was 02 sensor / vacume line.

I would pump the gas and then it would start and want to stall and then it would be fine. Now, yesterday I was driving it and the engine light came on and was flashing and the car made a new noise. It was a ticking noise and th

The check engine light came on and we started hearing a popping noise in the gas tank after moma went to an out the way gas station instead of going to our regular gas station that we always go to. The popping noise in the gas tank will stop on it's on a few minutes after the engine is turned off or it will stop immediately when I take the gas cap off and relieve the pressure in the gas tank. It's never done this before and the car only has like 56,000 thousand miles on it.

I own a 2002 Mazda MX5. I love the car but have a little problem. Sometimes while driving, the car starts to spudder and when I push the on the gas, it revs up and down. A couple of times it came to a halt. After turning off the engine and waiting 20 minutes, it started up and ran fine. This problem happens every couple of weeks. I took it to the dealer, they did all their diagnostic tests, and said there were no problems. The problem didn't happen when they took it for a few test drives.
