Q: Q: Engine oil leak

asked by on

Engine oil is leaking out of the car.

Engine oil can leak out from many seals in the engine of your Nissan Maxima. You can consider engine oil as the blood of the engine and it will need the proper amount inside at all times in order to keep those moving parts lubricated. The most common oil leaks are found in the valve cover and oil pan gaskets. I would recommend enlisting the assistance of a certified mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, to come by and inspect your Nissan for those oil leaks. They will have the experience needed to quickly determine the source of the oil leak and the tools necessary to make the repairs needed to keep the oil inside your engine.
