Q: Oil leak

asked by on

All of the oil leaked out.

Hi there. Engine oil is crucial to properly lubricate your engine’s moving parts internally. An engine may seize without the proper lubrication in the system. Your oil may have leaked from your oil pan, oil filter spindle, or in some cases because of a blown head gasket. I’d strongly advise against driving the vehicle until you have this taken care of since low oil can lead to engine damage. I recommend having a certified mechanic sent by YourMechanic come to your home or office to correctly diagnose and repair any oil leaks.
