oil leak right engine side front axle
I just bought this car yesterday and was told today it needs about 2000 dollars of work done under the hood. Fml
Oil leak. Smells bad
I have had an oil leak at this location in the car fixed three times only to find out that it is leaking in the area again. First the timing belt was replaced and a leaking cap was fixed. Then there was an oil leak due to the dealership that fixed the timing belt not placing parts they had removed back into the car. I then had a valve cover replaced for another oil leak after fixing the precvious one. I have not yet had this current oil leak looked at.
Replaced front and rear axles
I noticed it was slow seepage when I got under the vehicle looking for the oxygen sensor.
Mechanic is quoting me a 1200 dollar repair. The seal was faulty and all the oil has leaked out causing the whole differential to be rebuilt.
Oil leak - technician said seal problem but will take time to fix as he has to basically take apart the motor
