Stop Annoying Engine Oil Leaks

Aim oil leaks to grip your vehivle running smoothly.

Replace the valve cover gaskets if the oil leak has still not stopped. To do this, remove each old gasket by loosening the bolt with the socket wrench and prying the gasket off. Scrape off any remaining gasket sealer with a putty knife, and apply a new coat. Place the new valve cover gasket in position, and tighten the bolt. If you have an oil seep, you will see oil residue on the outside of your valve cover gaskets, but no oil will puddle under your vehicle.


1. Check your engine seals to see whether they have hardened, cracked or shrunk. If they appear to have done so, use the engine oil stop leak fluid. If they have not, skip to Step 3.

2. Pour the engine stop leak fluid into the engine oil compartment of your vehicle. The engine oil stop leak fluid will have to circulate through the engine before it takes effect, so you won't see results until after about three days of driving.

3. Examine your valve cover gaskets. You might need to tighten the bolts that attach the valve cover to the gaskets. Tighten any loose bolts using the socket wrench.

4.Engine oil is valuable for the smooth running of your vehicle. Whether you hold an engine oil leak, you Testament demand to obtain operation to purpose this dispute, or you could damage your vehicle. You can identify an engine with an oil leak because it will leave a puddle of oil underneath your vehicle. Don't confuse an oil leak with an oil seep, which is common and doesn't require any action.
