SOS...

I went to a mall today, after shopping, when I was leaving. I saw there is oil under my car (under both front tire), I am sure it came out from my car, because I would notice that if it was already there when I came. But when I was leaving, there is no oil spilling. I was confused, I didnt bump something, why my car oiling? Why when I was driving, there is no oil come out. why it come out after I park?? My car is not oiling right now. I am going to go to dealer to check my car tomorrow. I guess it might be something wrong with the Oil Filter. I have warrenty, so do I still need to pay to check my car(not at the dealer I bought my car)??

let the car sit over night & then check if oil is spilling out. it doesn't make sence that it would leak oil at the mall but when you got home, it's not leaking anymore. maybe the oil was already there when you parked & didn't see it.

Ya, I know. It's what my girl friend said. But it's impossible. Because if the oil is already there, I would notice when I parked. And I saw there is oil on my tire. I am sure that oil is spilled from my car.

I'd guess coolant as well and not oil.

ditto. you wouldnt notice if when you were driving anyway because it drips (if it was really dripping to begin with) so spaced out over the time while you are moving would prevent you from telling if it was dripping or not. thumbsup

Make sure that your Oil Filter is on tightly. Shouldn't be on super tight, but sometimes people neglect to tighten them up enough, and they loosen a little and leak. Also, next time you change your oil, install a new drain plug. That could be the problem also.
