SMELLED OIL IN CAR VENTS. LOOKED AT COOLANT RESEVOIR AND IT HAD OIL IN IT. OIL DIPSTICK AND OIL CAP LOOKED CLEAN, SO I SUSPECTED UPPER INTAKE MANIFOLD LEAK.

Oil leak 1995 Passport 2.6L 161K mi, had timing belt, crank pulley, belt tensioner, water pump, and front seals replaced. Leaks oil bad. Took it back, they said oil is coming from a weep hole in the front of the upper oil pan(two part pan). They put some silicone on it and said if it didn't hold, which it hasn't, I may need a new oil pan. What should I do?


If you did not have a leak there before you had the work done and you do now, the shop needs to correct the problem. There is no reason why you should need to repair the repair. If they don't see if your dmv has a repair complaint division,,,many sta ... 1995 Honda Passport

I just had my routine oil change on my 2000 Chevrolet Impala LS which currently has 141,286 miles. I was advised that the power steering pump and rack & pinion assembly are slightly leaking oil and need replacing (OUCH!!!$$$), there is no indication of a whinning noise or other noise. I also just had the valve cover and upper intake gaskets replaced 1 week prior due to a constant oil leaking (recently the message center light indicated "oil level low") and smell of burning oil for a long period


If i was to guess i would agree with your mechanic,the leaky pump and rack are likely due to the oil leak that was present.You need to pressure wash the engine after spraying it with engine de-greaser and then after it has dried,set some clean cardbo ... Chevrolet Impala

Oil leak I had my oil changed about four days ago. I was not told of any issues. Today I looked at my receipt and it stated oil leak noted. It did not say anything else nor did the tech mention it to me. Is this a problem I should be concerned about now? Is it something I have time to get repaired? The oil light has never come on. Is it possible that the oil filter was shot? Unfortunately, I went further than the 3000 mile recomendation. I have a 2005 Hyundai Sonata with 50,000 miles on it.


I would talk to the tech where you had the oil changed to be certain even though it doesn't sound serious from your description. ... 2005 Hyundai Sonata

Oil leak I was told by one mechanic I needed the whole engine reseal estimated cost 1850 alone with both upper control arms replaced. Another mechanic quoted 1825 for a hub bearing, starter, steering pump leak, and brakes. I'm confuse about the real issue with my vehicle. Help! the oil leak is on top, side, and back of motor as far as I can see.


Time to take it to the dealer for an estimate only.  Then get the repairs done as you can afford them at a independent garage.  Sadly it may be time for a replacement auto if the rear main seal, or the crank seal is leaking.  ... 1998 Nissan Maxima
