I have a 90 Loyale Auto w/ Turbo 118,000 Mile son it Full time 4WD that is leaking Oil near the front of the Engine. If I am underneath the Car I can see the Oil Spewing from the front, just below where all the Pulleys are. Almost directly below where the Alternator is. I cant figure out what it is called but I can see the Oil coming out and dropping onto the Exhaust. Does anyone know what this is? Oil Pump? Thanks for any help!

Someone with more experience will add their advice soon, but I would think that it is the oil pump gaskets or the seal on the front of the crankshaft.

Chances are you need to put new seals on your camshafts and crankshaft, an oil pump reseal might be necessary also. If you take the time and pull off your timing covers it should make itself fairly seen where it's coming from. All typical oil leaks that can be dealt with easily, do yourself a favor and change up your timing belts at the same time if needed (even if not needed to save hassle later).

I got a camshaft seal and an oil pan gasket. I guess I will change the Timing Belts when I am in there. Are there any other Seals I can change? Is there a Oil Pump Gasket? If so does any one know where to get one online? Thanks, Gabe
