I was told by a mechanic that 95 neon's SOHC engine has a hole for venting
which is different from other years neon. My 95 neon leaked oil suddently.
When I checked, I found the air intake hose is disconnected. Could this be
the reason of leaking oil? Is there any one who know whether this will
cause the cylinder head gasket broken? I've reconnect the air intake hose
and hopefully the oil will stop leaking.
Every one is entitled to there dreams, bnut yours wont come true, and the
only vent hole that engine has is the bad head gasket that is venting your
oil to the ground , nothing to do with the air cleaner.
But seriously, if you want to locate an oil leak, the best way to do it is
have it dye tested with a black lite, it will show all leaks.
The neon is famous for head gasket leaks, some rear main oil seals have been
known to leak and the cam shaft sensor/o-ring will leak
Thank you very much, maxpower. Would you mind telling me what kinds of
stuff for me to do dye testing with a black lite? Should I add it into the
engine as what I did for the engine oil? Thank you a million for all of
your kind advice.
The oil dye test requires a special lite and about 2 ounces of engine oil
dye, it normally comes in a kit that's about $150 or you can take it to a
garage that uses it and pay them the check out fee.
When you use this stuff you just pour it in the oil filler cap and run the
engine. if it is a big leak it will show up fast. if its a small leak you
may have to drive the vehicle for a few days before testing it.
You need a special pair of yellow glasses and the black lite to be able to
see where it is leaking from.
