How to stop oil and water leak

20

Asked by May 02, 2015 at 12:36 PM about the 1999 Volvo S80 T6 Turbo

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Oil pan was just replaced and car is
still leaking oil and the water is
leaking. What could this be? Also
when I pushed down on the gas to
accelerate the speed there was a lot
of smoke rolling out the tailpipe.
What's that and what to do

It's somewhere between difficult and impossible to answer where your leaks are from behind a keyboard and not being at the car. We do our best but can only guess, is the leak down low on the engine or coming from up higher and running down? Same with coolant....and what color is the smoke? Black or gray/blueish? Or even white?

The leak is down low and the smoke was whitish/gray

If you have very high mileage it might be time for a piston ring job. Black is unburnt fuel, Gray or blue/ gray. ---That's oil. I hate to say you need an entire engine, but doing a ring job is major surgery and not really cost-effective to do them alone. Oil is getting in to combustion chamber(s) and when you give it throttle it's burning through, hence the smoke. Could be valve guide seal(s), letting oil in from top or rings. But has nothing to do with leak. It's possible that you engine is just plain worn out...17 years and (?) miles will do that.
