How to Find Oil Leaks in Your Car and Fix Them

one, two, three, four! rev up your engines! It’s time for the Scotty Kilmer website, if your car is leaking oil, then stay tuned, because today I’m going to show you how to find oil leaks on your engine and how to fix them, of course the first thing to do is to figure out what kind of oil it is, so touch it with your hands, just stick your hands in there and grab some and in this case it’s obvious, it’s engine oil feels like engine oil, smells like engine oil, so I’ll get some of this ultraviolet leak detector and pour it a little bit in the engine oil, I’ll pour about a quarter of an ounce right in the engine oil, then I’ll use this cool ultraviolet light to find where the green dye is coming out, I’ll also be wearing these funky yellow sunglasses, because they make the dye show up more, you can get kits at any auto parts store that has these and there‘s the leak there’s a hole in the oil pan, the customer told me that she went over a railroad track too fast broke a whole bunch of stuff under here, so in this case time to put on a new oil pan just remove all the bolts that hold it on, then get a little chisel and pry it off, off comes the pan, now if you notice this old oil pan doesn‘t have a gasket it uses a glue and when I change them I always use this right stuff from Permatex it’s a gasket sealer that always seals, just make a beat of the sealer the whole way around the oil pan and put all the bolts back in, and put the pan on the engine, then of course put oil back in the engine before you start it up, then start her up and check for leaks and voila it’s all dry under here now, so the next time your car starts dripping oil, why not fix it yourself, and remember if you’ve got any car questions just visit appliancesrepairtoronto.ca and I’ll answer them as soon as I get back from this ride!
