I got a slow oil leak it is leaking under the car i dont see n e thing on top but under it seems wet where may this be coming from???any ideas.it smells like its burning the oil that is leaking to figure its burning on the exhaust or manifold?
there are a few methods you can use to check out an oil leak. first clean all the oil off of the engine. the you can run it and visually look for oil with a mirror and flashlight. you can go buy some leak trace powder (spray chalk) and spray it on the area where you think the oil is coming from. you drive the car and then take a look. or you can put fluorescent dye in the oil and then look for the leak with a blacklight. some kits come with special goggles to help accentuate the dye.
