Q: Oil leak and loss of speed

asked by on

The car started losing speed and leaking oil.

Hello. There are a couple of reasons why your car would be losing speed and leaking oil. There may be a hole in the oil pan and/or an engine block. I would recommend having a certified technician, such as one from YourMechanic, diagnose the oil leak and do necessary repairs.
