There is an oil seal on the gearbox/transaxle input shaft. If this has failed it will leak oil on to the clutch.It might be able to be replaced by just removing the gearbox again to access the seal. Most likely though is, the gearbox will need to be ... 1998 Suzuki Swift

Anyone have a solution to the distributor leaking oil. This is the second one that has this problem and I hate to shell out a couple hundred buck for a new one every time it starts leaking. Cressida distributors are know to leak oil through the shaft, into the housing and out the weep hole, There is no known solution such as replacing a seal but I'm hoping someone has an easy fix. As is the car can go through a quart every 2-300 miles.

My audi a4 is leaking oil unbelievably bad. i had someone look at it and he said it was some kind of gasket or seal and said if i get it he will fix it. i need to know what to buy. the leak is coming from the piece above the oil filter.


Sounds like the oil cooler is leaking. That is what the oil filter actually threads into. If so, that is not too bad to replace. Other oil leaks/seals to look out for are tail shaft seal (back of trans), rear axle seals, and vavle cover gaskets on to ... Audi A4

Oil leaking from 350 vortec in a 1998 chevy silverado z 71. a friend told me it was the rear main seal but with closer observation it looks to be coming from the left rear side of the block right above the starter. doesn't leak a lot only about a quart every oil change but still would like to know what it might be and how to fix it.

Hi I am looking to buy a 99 Vienta camry and have had it checked by my mechanic who has come up with $1000 worth of oil leak problems including a rear main engine oil seal. The seller is thinking this could be a drip coming down from the rocket cover gasket leak or timing case seal leak, is this possible and if these problems are fixed could this then lead to other problems. IE uncover one thing and fixing it leads to other problems?? Thanks

I am looking to buy a 1994 Toyota land cruiser. IT looks like there is a small oil leaks and a transmission fluid leak. The oil leak could be either an oil pan leak, rear seal, or valve covers. The transmission appeared to be coming from the rear of the transmission by the output shaft seal. What should it cost me to fix these leaks?


Could be quite costly. Especially the rear main seal on the engine. You have to take the trans out to even get to it. I would look for something else with less problems to buy. ... Toyota Land Cruiser

It goes away when applying gas, and accelerating. I recently had an issue with the AC clutchbeing stuck on. I removed the fuses so that I could drive the vehicle. I have heard the ting ting ting sound coming from the AC clutch so I know that probably needs to be replaced. I have no oil leaks or burning and the engine only has 99k miles

Today, I noticed a small puddle of liquid under the car. I'm no mechanic and don't claim to know anything about engines. I was wondering if anyone can give me a hint as to what may be the problem...
