Oil leaks are serious business—even if they end up being minor, the risk of major damage isn’t worth taking. One small oil leak could quickly become a blown engine or a cracked head, and that’s a lot more costly than a simple leak repair. Fortunately, we’ve got the knowledge and skill to check out all kinds of oil leaks, no matter where they’re located or how big (or small) they might be.
Several things could cause an oil leak, which is why a diagnostic will be necessary to determine where the issue stems from. Then, we’ll be able to determine why the oil is leaking
and how best to resolve the problem. We’ll even be able to advise you of potential tips to avoid issues in the future.
Possible Oil Leak Causes
The Bentley engine is no different from most other vehicle engines in terms of basic structure and operation. Therefore, it often sees the same common causes of oil leaks as all vehicles on the road today, including:
- Broken or degraded oil filters
- Degraded or missing engine gaskets or seals
- Oil pan gasket, valve cover gasket, front and rear crankshaft seals, timing cover gasket or seal, camshaft seals, oil filter gaskets, and cylinder head gaskets should all be checked.
- Rusted or damaged oil pan
- Loose or broken fill caps
- Too much oil in the engine
- Oil drain plug damage
Of course, these are just a sampling of the most common causes of oil leaks, and you could have a much bigger issue going on. Regardless of what is happening, you should bring your car in immediately and, if the oil leak is severe, have it towed. Driving a car with an oil leak can be dangerous in several ways—namely, it creates a serious fire risk and it can result in a full engine failure if the leak is severe enough or located in major engine components.
