Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I have noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

Can you please explain what you mean when you say your oil ran out. Are you saying you now have a leak since replacing the water pump and if so where dose the leak appear to be coming from. Post back when you can with as many details as you can and we can work from there.

I replaced the water pump and started the car and as it ran it started to run hot so I shut it off and when look underneath the car I noticed that oil was pouring out from the rear top portion of the engine, but it seemed to do it when I shut the engine off.
Chrysler Mechanic: Ron, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

Are you able to see what is leaking and where the oil is coming from?

All can see right now is drivers side Top rear portion of engine
Chrysler Mechanic: Ron, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

That may be the intake gasket leaking but your going to need to clean it off and have a closer look to try and pinpoint it.

what could have caused this, it wasn't happening before I replaced the pump.no
Chrysler Mechanic: Ron, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

Unfortunately with out being able to see where the oil is coming from its would be very hard to say. At this point I can not tell you as I have never had this type of problem replacing the water pump. If you would like me to open the post back up for you to see if perhaps someone else has I can do that for you. Let me know.

What Customers are Saying:

I was skeptical at first but thought I'd give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised. Your site actually is a quality service that I would recommend to others in a heartbeat.

StanSayre, PA

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
