  • DODGE NEON
I just had a question about my Dodge Neon. I have a 98' Dodge Neon 2.0 L 4 Cyl and it has 119,000 miles on it. Everything runs great in the car except I am leaking oil. I brought it to a gas station and they told me that I blew a head gasket. Now, I brought it for a second look and they told me the head gasket was fine because the car was not blowing out any white smoke or running funny. They looked and confirmed that. They did tell me I do have an oil leak however, but said I did not need to get it fixed immediatly. I drove about 500 miles and my oil was back down to minimum. When looking at the ground everytime I park there is water and oil mixed on the ground. The leak is coming from behind the oil pan.I think? What do you think I should do or what do you think is wrong with it? Is it in fact the head gasket? Or the oil pan seal? Or the oil pan? Just basically help in any way possible please. I have to put a quart of oil in almost every two days

Definatly a head gasket! They introduced a mls(multiple layer shim gasket) to replace the original wich has an o ring that seals the oil passage. The leak is always external in the back of engine. These engines are notorious for oil leaking at the head and from my experiance a pain in the but to replace. Ive done far too many of these to count the problem is that the o ring in the hesd gasket gets hard and stops sealing
