European Auto Oil Leak Repairs & Maintenance for San Diego Drivers
When you suspect your car has an oil leak, you need trusted and affordable help from the best mechanics in the area. Oil must circulate throughout your engine in order to prevent extreme heat from constantly-moving parts. By utilizing a lubricant, the components in your engine bay will continue to run smoothly, preventing friction heat and damage by metal-on-metal contact. At Dieter’s Porsche & BMW Service we help European auto drivers from all throughout the San Diego with fast, effective oil leak repairs that keep your car running at the level you expect.
Warning Signs of an Oil Leak
The most common indicator of an oil leak is seeing a dark spot or puddle underneath your car where you parked. However, you may have not noticed anything unusual until the low oil indicator illuminated on your dashboard. In that case, you may have an internal leak, which can be problematic. Signs to look for include:
- Oil light illuminates on dashboard
- Colored exhaust or excessive exhaust
- A burning smell as oil drips onto hot metal and is burned away
- Having to refill your oil reservoir often
- Dark puddles or drops where you parked overnight
There are many reasons why oil can leak from various places in your engine. This is why it is important to bring your car to mechanics who utilize brand-specific diagnostic tools and have the knowledge to diagnose and repair the problem correctly on the first visit.
The most common reasons for oil leaks include:
- Worn out seals or valves
- Leaking engine gasket
- Loose drain plugs on the oil pan
