View Full Version : Oil leak on friends 2.0
08-18-2005, 05:11 PM
I am helping out a friend with his 2.0. There is a small oil leak somewhere on the back side of the engine. There is oil on the underside of the intake tube, nothing on the back of the block. After the car warms up for about ten minutes it seems to lose the oil pressure reading. When you hit the gas it goes back up. Any help is appreciated.

anything leaking from the valve cover gasket?
oil cap on tight? no cracks?
sounds to me like there is a small opening somewhere thats letting the pressure out a little tiny bit, enough for it to drop, but when revved it\'s not enough of a crack to let the pressure out.
other than that I\'d have to look at it to form any other opinions.

Bring it in to Tires Plus! Really, your best bet is to have a buddy that knows his way around a car take a look at it. Doesn\'t sound like anything too tricky. Good luck, keep us posted.
