OIL LEAK

1999 Nissan Altima

Engine Mechanical problem

I have a slight oil leak and would like to know how and where to start looking for the leak. The leak leaves about a silver dollar size mark on the driveway every day.

Hi there,

The best way to check for engine oil leaks is to get the engine washed top & bottom and take it for a drive, then check for any fresh leaks, you should be able to see where it is coming from on the clean engine.
