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...

    • I doubt they make much difference in towing, and the actual research says that they don't, and may be worse.  Do a search for "frontal area" on your favorite search engine for an explanation.   I like the V front for the bathroom area.  It works out to be about the perfect amount of space.   
    • Haven't weighed it.     Catching tons of fish.  Just had an awesome weekend up on Mille Lacs.  Going back up this weekend.  Then it's off to Gull for the big tournament.

    • Adrian's is good or really any of them on that point is a safe bet.
    • First on CNN: Trump's Cabinet pick invested in company, then introduced a bill to help it   http://www.cnn.com/2017/01/16/politics/tom-price-bill-aiding-company/index.html   Draining the swamp indeed. 
    • No, it's bigger than that. That's not chicken feed Foghorn Leghorn.
    • I think it all depends on whether you are looking for at a 14' + 3' V or a true 17' box. On my house I put the door on one side of the V and stove and counter top on the other side. I would have lost a lot of room and at least one hole is it weren't for the V. 
    • What you obviously don't understand is deficits are not moderate.  Economic growth is much slower than the climb of the debt to GDP ratio.   https://fred.stlouisfed.org/series/GFDEGDQ188S   Also, several foreign countries have scaled back purchases of treasuries, increasing yields, and putting upward pressure on interest rates.  If interest rates rise, (as they naturally should) interest on the debt increases, and the effect would be to put even more pressure on trying to maintain a balanced budget.   Here's that pesky $9 trillion figure again - quoted from St. Louis Fed:   If the increase in yields is a result of the pullback, then foreign demand might be crucial in keeping a cap on borrowing costs. This implication is especially important if the U.S. national debt increases by $9 trillion over the next decade as projected.2
