    Engine oil leak!

    Hi
    i have a 06 gtx limited which has just had an engine rebuild. Went to use for the first time yesterday and all the oil is in the bottom of the hull, i was only out for a few minutes so there was no damage to the engine.
    Does anyone have any ideas to where the oil could be leaking from?

    Thanks
    scott

    have you checked the the boot on the driveshaft? maybe you forgot to put a clamp on it? when i rebuilt my motor i forgot to tighten the bolts for the oil cooler and all the oil came out form there. you might wanna check that.

    sorry i forgot to mention i have checked the driveshaft oil seal, the o rings on the oil cooler and have taken off the front oil pump to check gasket and all is fine. I just cant figure out where its coming from, anyone have any ideas.

    i have just found that the oil drain plug on the front of the block is only hand tight. would the oil leak from there when runnoing if not tight?

    yes, under pressure it can leak quickly from any loose part. I had a loose oil pressure switch where it leaked once.
