98 Neon oil leak 2.0

01-08-2010, 02:16 AM
Passenger side right around the balancer. Oil literally POURS out, in twenty miles the warning light is on. Is there a conventional front crank seal? I tried to find some good exploded views but was unable to. I've never seen an engine pump out oil this fast. I know the oil pump is right behind there, does it have a seal? Car has about 110k on it. :cwm27:

It has a small seal behind the bottom timing belt gear. Look further up at the cam gear seal, Neon's are bad for that seal popping out.
