Got the O2 sensor it, that was alot easier than I thought it was gonna be. After I backed the car out of the garage I noticed some oil on the floor...

Give it to me straight doc, how bad might it be??? Oil pan leak or could this be from my missing flywheel cover??? There'* also an indentation in the oilpan, is that normal or should it be flat all the way across the bottom???
I've been thinkin about getting my tranny serviced, prolly hasnt been done before. Just get the filter/gasket combo, not necessarily a flush.

Also, old vs New...

To tell you the truth..something has been seeping for a long time from what I can see in that picture.

I'd degrease the entire motor and undercarriage...give it a couple days and look again while keeping an eye on the oil level in case there is a larger issue.

Oil pan gasket leaks on the 95'* are common...

But I agree with Boosty... Get the area cleaned and then search for leaks

Default NEW QUESTION...

So when I start my car up, usually with astrostart, the "check engine" and "traction off" lights are on. Traction light usually goes away after I drive a lil bit but the check engine light stays on until it gets warmed up. Also, when it'* cold, it almost sounds like it'* trying to miss, and when I tried to drive off before it totally warmed up it almost died on me.... What might be goin on...
Thanks

Sure.. reach down in the back of the engine and move that #6 plug wire off the O2 sensor wiring.

Seriously??? I mean, I'll go make sure nothing'* touching, but that will cause it to idle rough when it'* cold?

Yup. That and a vacuum leak will both do that.

Also carefully inspect and check every vacuum/emission line and connector, even the ones at your cannister. It'* common for the connectors to develop cracks or splits.
