Oil Leak

7 posts in this topic

Motor is a 97 Mercury 200HP DFI. There is an oil leak somewhere towards the front of the engine. I don't know what the specific name for the parts on the engine are, so I'll explain it best I can. There is a silver thing on the front of the motor says "Digital" on it. On the backside of this is 3 what appears to be butterfly lookin things. Then there is 3 blocks, and then the engine. Somewhere there is the oil leak. It is not coming from any oil injection lines, I checked all of them. If it is one of the 2 gaskets between what I was talking about above, how hard is it to replace them. In other words, can I do it myself? Or, is there something I'm missing? Any help would be greatly appreciated as I'm tired of wiping up oil in the splashwell whenever I tip the engine for transport. This is clean oil.

Can you take a picture and post it to better describe the location?

Can you draw (using ms paint, etc) to indicate where the oil is coming out of?

You may need to head to the dealer for this leak...
