Q: Car leaks oil when turning

asked by on

My car is leaking a massive amount of oil whenever I turn.

Massive oil leaks are pretty easy to find. You’ll have to clarify "when you turn." Do you mean turn the steering wheel? If that’s the case it sounds like a pressure hose for the power steering. If you mean the car going around a bend, it could be a hole in the oil pan. A qualified mechanic from YourMechanic can come out and diagnose your oil leaking issue to have this problem resolved.
