I cannot fit underneath the car for obvious reasons of it being so low to the ground, but I put my cell phone underneath with a flash and took this picture. As you can see the oil pan is dry but the transmission side is soaked. I will say again that there is a good amount of oil sitting on top of the engine just under the intake tubes...so I cannot get a good picture of that without taking those apart. I am just not sure if the source is above the engine or also between the oil/transmission... Any more ideas based off this pic? I do have a call in to make an appointment with the repair shop. But, if it is something I can handle myself then I would rather do so. Or I would at least like to have an idea of what I am getting myself into as far as a repair bill etc...
Maybe this image will help a little more? 1) Number "1" is a thick hose that connects to the intake? It has oil leaking from underneath it quite a bit 2) "2" is very hard to show. It is underneath the arrow. It is a hard line, feels like metal, and it looks like a lot of oil is coming from it. It is mounted directing on top of the engine below the intake connector. 3) Seems to be some sort of oil send or something based off my internet research 4) The 4th one is not in this picture but looks like the oil return tube To also go along with the number "2", if you look at the back of this picture where the hydraulic reservoir cap is. Just down and to the right of that cap there is oil leaking. From that area and the area I described in # 2, there is quite a bit of oil sitting on the top of the engine.
Hey everyone. I am not looking for an over the computer total solution, but I was wondering if some of these pictures I post may stick out to explain some oil leaking issues I am experiencing. I have a 2001 Boxster. After squeezing under the car it looks like the area where the oil drain plug is located, as well as the entire drivers side (the side that has the filter housing) is dry. I gained access to the engine compartment and took these pictures where I could see oil leaking down. Please look at each and tell me what you think. I have read about a couple of these parts cracking etc.. Any insight you can give before I take it to the repair shop would be helpful. Thanks.
