Hyundai Elantra oil leak check engine light?


Asked by Dec 17, 2015 at 11:27 AM about the 2001 Hyundai Elantra

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

140,000 miles  Recently purchased a couple weeks ago.  Not really driven it
much as it took a minute to have it transferred and registered.  Came out to
drive the car and noticed a lot of oil on the ground.  Checked the oil and there
was barely any in the car.  Also check engine light is on...

l leak coming from?  What is involved in the repair of issue?

1 Answer


If that oil was leaking out all this time, it would be the drain plug. Check to see that it is tight. Check engine light would come on since there was no oil in it.
