i have an oil leak and it look likes its coming from the driver side in the front of the car, when you raise the hood you can look down and watch it drip. I get the oil low statement every 3 to 4 days to add oil.
Oil leaking from front of motor I put about 1-2 quarts in 2 week period
No oil light came on, no check engine came on until the engine completely blew due to oil suddenly leaking from faulty crankshaft seal. I have had regular oil changes and ALL scheduled maintenance done and nothing was detected. They found the problem when I had the engine pulled. It was sudden, not slow. Strange.
Engine oil leak, have to put oil in car every week.
was on lift mechanic recognized it from previous ones he worked on. not fixed yet cant afford the bill
I started losing old. I got under there and change the oil myself to check out the problems. I notice all running down the front of the engine after it rains couldn't really tell where it was coming from. I checked again after it had dried up and noticed that it was coming from the crankshaft seal.
Leaking as we speak. Cannot afford to fix at this time. I am retired and it's close to Christmas
