Engine Oil Leak Diagnostic

How much does a Engine Oil Leak Diagnostic cost?

It depends on the type of car you drive and the auto repair shop you go to. Our mechanics are mobile, which means they don't have the overhead that repair shops have. They provide you convenience by coming to your home or office.

Engine Oil Leak Diagnostic

The Engine Oil in a car has many functions, and one of these functions is removing the deposits of sludge and gunk in the engine keeping it clean. Engine oil that is unused has an amber color; however it changes to black over time after being exposed to heat and dirt from the engine. Engine oil is critical for the proper function of your engine and an engine oil leak should be addressed right away to avoid engine damage.

How To Tell If You Have An Engine Oil Leak?

To check for engine oil leaks keep a close eye on your oil dipstick. If the level drops over time, you’re losing oil. While driving, check and see if blue smoke is coming from the tailpipe. Blue smoke means oil might be leaking into the engine itself. After a drive, you may notice a burning oil smell. This could mean oil is leaking onto hot components of the engine itself. Lastly, check for the classic oil stains or puddle under the engine compartment, especially after it’s been sitting overnight.

Finding a puddle under the engine is usually the sign of a leak. If the liquid is red it’s probably transmission fluid. If the liquid is green or orange and has a sweet smell, coolant is the culprit. Brown fluid will indicate an engine oil leak.

Common causes of engine oil leaks?

  • Degraded engine gaskets
  • Oil pan leaks
  • Oil seals or bad connections

How it's done:

Instamek will send a certified mechanic to your home or office and perform the engine oil leak diagnostic. They will check the oil pan sealsand the oil pan drain plug. Next they'll check the timing cover seal and the valve cover gaskets. Problems here can require extensive repairs that are not cheap. After running a full inspection of the components, the mechanic will create a report telling you the source of the problem and the needed repairs which can usually also be performed on the spot.

How important is getting an engine oil leak diagnostic?

If you notice signs of an oil leak, get your car inspected right away. Engine oil leaks are a fire risk in your engine compartment and can result in catastrophic engine failure.

I found Wrench Patrol on Google. Their website communicated their services well. The fact they are mobile is fantastic. I called them and the fellow was very pleasant and helpful. They also scheduled the appointment with the vehicle Owner (Seller) and I had the option of being present for the Inspection or not. Since the vehicle was at least 30 minutes away, I opted not to go but let the... Mechanic handle it. Very convenient for both Buyer and Seller. The Report arrived via email shortly after the inspection and was very easy to read and thorough. Brake pads will need replaced within the next 6 months and a leaky inner cv boot was indicated. This was critical information in helping us with our purchase. I would definitely use and recommend their service again. Thank you guys.read more

The service and convenience are HEAVEN!!!My wife dripped off our kids at the arena for a hickey game. As she was parking, there were funny jerks. Thankfully she was able to park. But the car was not starting. She took the kids to the hockey game. While watching the game, she called instamek and left he keys at the information desk for the mechanic. 4 hours later after the warm up, the game,... and dressing the kids, my wife and the kdis walked to the parking to the now fully functioning vehicle. Here is a list of what they did (skme of the work was elevtive as i had asked for it)1) diagnostics2) new sparks plus3) new engine starter4) changed engine oil5) 4 break pads and rotars6) my passenger head lamp (broken from before)7) new battery8) new beltMy wife didnt even meet the mechanic.

This was AMAZING service.It was a very fair price.We bought a used truck and experienced an oil leak. It was scary.Hany came out the same day we called. On a Saturday! (Which did not cost extra).He inspected everything for us. He ran diagnostics. He put us at ease about our purchase.Next time I buy a used vehicle, I'll definitely call Hany to check it out ahead of time.He was professional,... knowledgeable, friendly, and a pleasure to work with. I feel that he went above what was necessary and really provided superior customer service.I'll be using them for all my regular service.read more
