car is leaking oil Sign In

Hello everyone. My car is leaking a few drops of oil a day and i was hoping to fix it myself. I went under it today to see if I could adjust some things but everything seems to be well adjusted. I took some pics from under it to find out what the problem seems to be. Its my first time in the forums so i will see how to upload them . Thanks

You don't fix oil leaks by adjusting anything. You replace whatever gasket or seal that is leaking. You start from the highest point you find a leak as the oil spreads as it it runs downhill.

You will likely have to clean the engine to find the source.


We offer help in answering questions, clarifying things or giving advice but we are not a substitute for an on-site inspection by a professional.
