Engine Mechanical problem
1995 Toyota Celica 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 151000 miles
I was given a 1995 Celica and it is leaking oil. The leak seems to be substantial (a drop every few mins). I drove the vehicle 70 miles (with the oil full) and it was near empty when I arrived. There are no signs of oil under the hood (the engine & filter is clean). The leak appears to be directly below the engine.
However - I noticed that most of the underneath of the car seems to be covered in oil. In addition, since getting the vehicle home, I have driven a few short distances (2-3 miles) and checked the underneath immediately and no longer see any oil leaking. Not sure if the leak is blowing the oil back and the lack of a good heat is preventing the oil from dripping?
Is this a common problem for the Celica? Any thoughts on what it could be? Any thoughts on how much I am looking at to have it fixed?
have the same problem?
