Mechanic's Assistant: Has the vehicle turned into a gas hog? And how does it start -- same as usual?

Its starts ok.its not mine I'm just trying to help a friend locate where or what is leaking the oil

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your Town and Country?

2014

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Town and Country yourself? What have you tried so far?

We are still trying to figure out where the oil is coming from

hi there

im cam, a licenced diagnostic tech

this is a common issue with these engines.

the oil leak is usually coming from the oil filter housing body.

this is caused by over tightening the oil filter cover when changing the oil and filter.
this is a bit of a design issue in my opinion from chrysler as they make them too tall and cannot tolerate over tightening the cap when changing the filter.
this will need to be inspected in this area . i use a inspection camera to pinpoint this

let me know id i can assist you any further and i would be happy to help!

please take a moment to rate me and i am always available for follow ups after rating!

thanks and i appreciate positive ratings

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.
