Hello. I hate it when people never say the right things. I understand you completely! I'm on your side! The best thing to do is go back to who did the repairs and tell them what is going on with the car. Be strong and show them you are mad. Good Luck.

Crankshaft is an internal engine part. The only leak associated with the crankshaft would be from the rear main seal or front main seal behind the crankshaft pulley. Definitely something you want a professional to take care of.

My 1998 mountaineer has oil leak, one mech said at 196K engine is shot and need to dump it. 2nd mech said could be breather screen plugged, causing pressure build up, and thus oil leak. also mentioned a...

Doesn't it seem odd to you, that two mechanics can't seem to get
involved enough to try and at least sound like they know the business
their in?

You didn't say what leaks,where it is,how,when,etc

Did they say the leak is fixable?

The EGR Valve,hoses & such, would be a good place to start

Why didn't they do that?

All this talk & no attempt to resolve a thing

We get thousands of people a week on this site alone,
what is going on with these shops,any idea?

Small leaking from oil and fluids gaskets, do I need repairs

Cars are not supposed to leak.

A small oil leak will eventually make the whole engine slimy.

If you forget to keep putting oil in, a leak can destroy the engine from running out of oil.

You don't have to have it repaired, but if it is an inexpensive repair, I think you should. (Some oil leak repairs require somewhat extensive engine disassembly, and are not cheap...)

The Oil light came on my 1998. It has no oil. What mihgt be the problem? Its a V6 Honda.

When was the last time you had the oil level checked. All engines use oil, its part of their design so you need to check the oil level at least weekly. Next, if the oil has leaked out, open the hood and look all over the engine for signs of obvious leakage. Oil stains or small pools of oil on or in crevices on the engine. Look under the car where it is usually parked, leaking oil drips downwards so you will see oil stains on your driveway if it has leaked out. Look under the car to see if there is oil stains on the chassis. All of these are pointers to a leak. If you can see signs of leakage, top up the level using the dipstick and take the car to your local garage. They can clean off the oil, run the engine and see where the leak is coming from. If you cannot see signs of leakage, it may be that the oil level was not kept up to the mark. If you recently had the vehicle serviced, did they refill the engine with the correct amount of oil..And using the wrong grade of oil is as bad as a low oil level. If the level is correct, check the oil pressure switch. This is a small switch that monitors the oil pressure and they do fail. If it has failed, it will need to be replaced as these switched are not repairable. If the vehicle has an oil level switch, again, it could be a failed switch so replace it. I am not familiar with this engine so I am unable to point you to these switches but your local garage will locate them very quickly for you..

Coolant/Oil Leak... Big or Little problem?

I think that car has a transverse mounted motor. if that is the case, the area that you see coolant is probably coming from the weep hole on the water pump shaft. that is the precursor to a bearing failure. that is where i would look first. if you get coolant on the pass side floor of the car, then it would be the heater core. hope that helps.

My 1997 Pontiac Grand Prix GTP has an oil leak located on the firewall side of the engine. It's a small leak (2-3 drops a day) but very messy on my concrete driveway. How can I fix it?

Try some motor honey. It can be bought at most part stores, advanced auto, autozone, ect. It worked for my 95 Grand Am when I had a leak in my oil pan gasket. Hope this helps

Oil Leaking slightly from engine block

Could be some thing as simple as a leaking filter, drain plug, or oil pressure sending unit. If it hasn't been in for an oil change lately, take it in, mention you have seen drops on the driveway, the tech will likely note the leak and possible solution. From this you can determine the cause and cost.

My intake gasket is leaking how do i replace it? 94 toyota camry

It would probably be very beneficial for you to purchase a Haynes Repair Manual that will walk you through step by step for just about every repair mechanical and otherwise that you would need to undertake now and in the future. Toyota makes a very durable machine but eventually things wear down. I know the manuals can be purchased at most of your auto part store chains such as Auto Zone, Discount Auto Parts, Pep Boys or something similar. Tou will find a range of years included in several books for your specific year, make and model.Cost is around $20.00 They have torque specs and all other specs you will need. Another manual that is good but I don't see much of anymore is Chiltons. You can also look at a book store if that is closer to where you live but I'm not sure. Also could look on ebay possibly.
Just to mention this. I don't think that your oil would be leaking from the intake manifold gasket. The intake manifold distributes the air/fuel mixture from a throttle body which is like a carb only it uses a single fuel injector to control the fuel. Or, it would be a plenum that only handles the air distribution to the cylinders, with an injector for the fuel delivery located by each cylinder. Fuel and air or air under a vacuum environment An intake manifold leak is usually accompanied by erratic engine idle speeds that constantly change or are too high or too low. I would check the valve cover gasket, a clogged pcv valve, or another small component fastened in the area of the leak. Oil leaks can sometimes be difficult to track.
Hope this helps,
