Q: My car is leaking oil - 1997 Chevrolet Tahoe

asked by on

My 1997 2 door Chevy Tahoe, 5.7 V8, 4 wheel drive is leaking a few drops of oil on the ground each time I stop the vehicle.

My car has 145000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

A: Hi and thank you for contacting YourMechani...

Hi and thank you for contacting YourMechanic. The best thing to do is to wash your engine, including the bottom, really good. Now, after driving you will be able to inspect where the leak is coming from. The most common places will be around the valve covers, oil filter, oil pan, and where the engine mounts with the transmission. This will give you an idea of where the oil is coming from and what is causing the leak.

I recommend having a certified mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, come to your location to inspect for the leak and determine what repairs are necessary.

Q: What could cause the truck not to turn on?

Your engine needs three things to start: fuel, compression, and spark. If you are missing any of these then your engine will not start. I recommend checking to see if the carburetor is getting fuel by using a small spray...
