I Noticed Oil On My Garage Floor — What Should I Do?

What do you do if you go out in the morning to find that your car has leaked oil on your garage floor? This could be an indication of a small problem, or it could be something more.

Leaking oil could be caused from a number of issues ranging from mild to severe. Some of the mildest causes of oil leaks could be an improperly aligned or worn-out oil filter; a loose or worn-out drain plug on the oil pan; or the oil filler cap could be missing, loose, or broken. Some major causes of concern for oil leaks could be a leaking valve cover gasket, pan gasket, oil cooler lines or possibly other gaskets.

Your first step is to check your engine oil and make sure that it is not low, if it is add oil to your vehicle before driving it.

If your vehicle is leaking oil contact your local Best-OneĀ® Auto Care and one of our trained technicians will be more than happy to take a look at it and repair it properly.
