I have an oil leak. How do I determine what the problem is?
We need to determine in what area of the car the oil leak is coming from. If it’s in front of the motor it could be a front main seal or camshaft seal. If it’s near the rear of the motor it could be a rear main seal. The only way to tell is to jack the car up and get under it and inspect it. A mechanic from YourMechanic can assist you in inspecting the oil leak.
