Oil is leaking out of my car.
Hello. If oil is leaking out of your car, it is something that you should address as soon as possible. There are several different places where you could be leaking oil. Your valve cover gaskets could be leaking oil, or the leak could be coming from your oil pan gasket. You could also have a leak at the rear main seal, which is the seal that is located between your transmission and engine. It is also possible that your oil filter housing or crank seal could be leaking. There is a process that is used to check for leaks by adding dye to the oil system, which will pinpoint exactly where the leak is located. This should be done by a certified technician, such as one from YourMechanic.
