    Ain't oil leaks the greatest?

    Also think I got a windshield wiper fluid leak since it mysteriously disappears every few days..

    Spray your engine bay and block down with some degreaser and take a power washer to it,

    I got no clue ;_;

    I gotta take it to a shop and get it fixed, since the previous owner said if I find a shop that will take credit card over the phone, they would pay for it to get fixed since it was leaking when they had it too.

    And I don't know what is wrong with the windshield wiper thing, I filled it up like 3 days ago, and haven't really been any where and haven't used the sprayer, and then I was checking the transmission fluid and noticed that the windshield wiper fluid was nearly empty.

    Find the washer reservoir, it should be down behind the headlights then pull the fender liner out from the bumper and check the hoses. Sometimes the bottle itself will become a little brittle and start to leak.

    Yeah I plan to have them look at it when I get the oil leak fixed. I hope, in the mean time, I am rolling a stock, leaky, engine.

    lol, if you think that is bad, you should have seen what the bottom of my car looked like when my oilpan gasket went loose at gingerman raceway. When I came into the pits, there was oil dripping from my gas tank.

    Pics of my car

    U cant tell the oil on that engine because i took those on my phone, but the last two make me laugh

    The hood holdy uppy rod is down, but the hood stays up without anyone holding it.

    My mom went to tahiti last weekend, and she hasnt gotten the pics off my camera yet. She doesnt wanna give my camera back (and truth be told i dont want it back) until she gets her pictures off of it.

    Ill show you the macro pics of the engine when that comes back to me.

    I put it in the shop today. It's gonna cost $767.88 to get the rear main seal, valve cover gasket, and distributer all fixed.

    Apparently it had 2 oil leaks, and the distributor was mis-firing. >.<

    I only wanted to spend $600 or less. But oh well. My mom said if I could find $100 she would put in the other $100 for my birthday gift to buy the rear bumper I want. But the bumper is $225 + shipping. The good news is that the guy from Ground Dynamics, said he would give me 10% off all the stuff I buy from them. But you still got the shipping, plus I still gotta find a shop to install it and fix the body damage around the rear driver wheel well so that the bumper will fit right. >.<

    You aren't doing the work yourself? Seals aren't TOO hard to replace. My ol 'Cord leaks pretty damn bad from the front of the engine... I've replaced the oil pan gasket, crank seal and cam seal... still leaks. I just finished rebuilding an oil pump (that thing has THREE gaskets) and I am hoping that will fix the problem. It's the only thing left that I haven't replaced.

    On second thought... yeah, let them fix it :lol:

    Well I let them fix it because I don't know how to work on cars, I just drive them, in my girlish meager attempt at driving anyways. ;_;
