Asked by Nov 09, 2016 at 03:37 PM about the 2012 Suzuki SX4 Base AWD Crossover

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The oil seems to be coming from the front side where the oil filter is. I can
tell its not the valve cover its below the exhaust so I am thinking the oil filter
or the sending unit maybe the pan gasket or head gasket. Its not knocking
so thats a good thing so no spun bearings or thrown rods. let me know what
you guys think

thanks

do not drive the car and check the oil level. Most likely you had the oil changed lately and the guy who changed the oil filter during the oil change, most likely did not remove the oil filter seal of the oil filter by mistake, and by having two oil filter seals on top of each other your oil will leak out. So make sure there is enough oil first and if I am correct about the oil change. Even have the car towed to avoid any engine damage.

Can't really give advise til u find where it's leaking from. Hopefully it's just a leak and not a crack somewhere
