Oil leaks are something you cannot afford to ignore.

It doesn’t always take a trained mechanic to figure out what caused the engine oil leak.

The vast majority of leaks are due to degraded engine gaskets, oil pan gasket, oil seals or bad connections. Crawl under the car and check the oil pan seals. While you’re there also check the oil pan drain plug. Next check the timing cover seal and the valve cover gaskets.

While brand new cars shouldn’t leak oil, a small amount of oil seepage can occur on vehicles even with low mileage. A small trace of oil on the ground isn’t necessarily a big problem.
