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
