My car is constantly leaking oil. There are large oil puddles under my carport in the area where my car sets. I've had the oil pan gaskets, along with other parts thought caused the leakage replaced; however, the leak still continues. I don't want another car payment, but I don't know what to do.
Started leaking oil at 60,000 on new Eng. No visible oil on top of engine but entire bottom of car coated in oil.. If it were a head gasket wouldn't performance be affected? No overheating or water in oil???
My oil light starting fliking on and off. Now it stays on when l am driving. When vehicle is turn off I smell oil. Is that indication of a leak. The engine on top is clean, no puddles. What's up with this.
