Default Name than tune (I mean oil leak)


Where is this oil leak coming from?

It drops its oil on the drivers side (LHD). Imagine you are looking under the car, right where the wheel meets the road, then in about 1-2 inches. I can't tell where it is coming from.

Does this sound like something where they will have to drop the pan anyways? (GOD I HOPE SO) I figure I can kill two birds with one stone with the oil sludge problem (see if this car has it) and getting this leak fixed.

Luckily I have a warranty, so I am good on that, but still I HATE oil leaks more than electrical problems.

They can be so hard to find, so my suggestion is to get some engine degreaser, bring it down to a car wash that has a power washer and clean the heck out of it. Then drive car some, get under with a light and search it out.
