    Dear Sirs,

    I would like to know kung meron kayong kilalang shops that can fix oil leak sa Pajero. Mahina naman leak pero meron kasi, di ba dapat wala. Also, some mechanics said oil pan, some transmission oil. Di ko talaga alam. thanks.

    Have it fixed immediately. Duon sa parkingan namin, muntik na akong madulas dahil sa oil.

    Have your car lifted to see where the leaks are coming from...yes, it could be the oil pan which might need resealing, and rear and differential oil seals(which are all commona and comes with aging) which might need replacements; leak from the pan will be pretty obvious (baklas suspension ito since 4wd yan), with the rear oil seal, leak is usually concentrated between the transmission and engine block (paki correct nalang kung mali)

    your suking goodyear servitek and the likes offer services for those and could all be done in a day. just search for the directory of reputable shops here in the forum...use "shop/s" as the keyword.

    ...if its coming from the rear oil seal, as long as wala naman tulo sa floor, its safe to just leave it until you're due for clutch replacement kse ibababa ang transmission mo which will cost you pagdating sa labor. =)

    Anong engine? Have the vehicle lifted and trace where the oil starts to leak. Minsan sa half moon seal behind the valve cover lang. P150 worth of rubber.

    Sir Ungas,
    4D56 engine. Haven't really seen the underside of the vehicle, but will do that. Just checked the oil lately, talagang nababawasan, sayang naman, fully synthetic pa naman gamit ko. Sana mawala na oil leak pag napagawa ko na. Gastossss na naman....Thanks y'all!!!

    much easier to trace if you cleaned up the engine itself thoroughly first, oil travels a LOONG way when it's dripping on hot surfaces, making them hard to trace.

    Is a fully synthetic oil advisable for an old 4D56? Baka yun ang cause kaya nagleleak ang oil mo, imho.

    Meron pang isang possible leak source from the balancer cover beneath the injection pump. Yung balancer cover nasa side ng engine block mismo. Gaskets usually don't last the heat.

    Lastly, yung pump sa likod ng alternator which provides air for hydro assisted brakes. Merong return hose yan pabalik sa engine block, minsan maluwag ang fittings o kaya naman pinhole leak due to pressure.
