Sounds like the Valve Cover Gasket needs replacing. You need to find out where the oil is coming from first. Clean all the oil off the engine and then start it, and look see where it is leaking. It is probably not the head gasket.
Yes, that, but if you remove the Oil Filler Cap, and with the engine running there is considerable air flow coming out of the Valve Cover, then probably you have a bad compression ring on at least one cylinder.....what it does is pressurize the Valve Cover and eventually blows out the gasket....mine does it in the front......leaking oil all down the front of the engine.......a Compression Check would be in order.
Gasket is leaking oil. Valve cover gasket is likely suspect.
Possibly head gasket.
If the power steering rack is leaking, it is likely an seal or a gasket. Replacing the seal or gasket should stop the leak.
Head gasket could be bad
your car may be leaking coolant into the engine, i.e your head gasket may be bad
Could have a hole in one of the pipes worst case scenario could be a blown head gasket.
Probably a blown head gasket. If the car has an (engine) oil cooler it might be a leak there too.
a bad water pump or thermostat You can also have an internal leak as in a leaking head gasket. Have this repaired ASAP, or you may do serious damage to the engine.
If you did not get the water in your oil from replacing the gasket then you may have a coolant passage leaking into an oil passage. Another answer may be a gasket that is not exactly like the old one. Sometimes the parts store issue a wrong part or may be from a bad aftermarket gasket.
Gas is leaking into your oil pan. If the head gasket is leaking, it needs to be replaced. While the cylinder head is off, look for a cracked piston or worn rings which may cause gas to leak into the oil pan. If the gasket has been replaced and you had no piston damage or bad rings, then change the oil and filter.
it could be leaking from some were above and its driping on the pan causing it to look like its leaking from the pan or if you over tourk the bolts it will warp the pan causing it to leak
Intake manifold valley pan gasket is leaking. Happened to my 99. Remove the intake and change the gasket that seals the flat pan to its bottom.
you put your gasket on wrong and it didn't seal.
Probably a blown head gasket. Get a technician to look at it. If it is, it will be a major ordeal.
from the water pump tell tale hole
Could be one or more of several problems.- leaking radiator or hoses, leaking water pump, leaking thermostat gasket, leaking head or intake gasket, leaking or low over-flow reservoir, leaking heater core, radiator drain cock not tight enough, bad radiator cap. Drops or puddles of antifreeze under the vehicle or in the engine compartment or on the carpet under the dashboard (usually passenger side) can often indicate where to look for leaks. White smoke from exhaust sometimes indicates a blown head or intake gasket. In any event, the problem needs to be addressed. It is not normal and leaks of any kind will only get worse over time, potentially bad enough to cause harm to the engine.
cylinder head gasket leaking.
It's probably a warped head & head gasket, or possibly a cracked head or block. But you probably have the sequence wrong. In most cases the engine overheated THEN cracked and you got coolant into the engine. That indeed is a possibility but burbs are notorious for having a leaking intake manifold gasket that would be the place to start you'll get there before you get the heads off anyway.
It cannot smoke out of the spark plug. It can however be leaking oil around the spark plug area thus causing it to smoke. The problem is the valve cover is leaking. Try tightening the valve cover bolts slightly. If that does not stop the leak, replace the valve cover gasket.
Sounds like a blown head gasket. This is a major repair, and will be expensive.
Valve cover gasket is probably leaking oil onto the exhaust manifold or the oil filter may be leaking oil onto the exhaust pipe.
bad hose, radiator leak, leaking into engine.
whats wrong with me I'm on my period and milk leaking out my breast
It could be the cause of the knock only if the gasket was bad and leaked out almost all the oil.
The possibilities are many, and none are particularly good. Here are several possibilities (note that any one or more combinations, all, or none of the conditions listed here are possibilities) :blown head gasket.leaking valve cover gasket(s).leaking oil pan gasket.leaking oil pan plug.punctured oil pan.broken, burnt, or otherwise faulty intake or exhaust valves.plugged PCV valve (Positive Crankcase Ventilation valve).leaking engine seals.broken or worn-out piston rings.too long since last oil and oil filter change.incorrect oil viscosity.engine needs tune-up.faulty oil pump.etc.
