View Full Version : Small Drip

09-21-2003, 06:28 PM
I know...if it's a Healey you've got to expect a few drips. I do and I have them. A little engine oil drips after the car has been driven -- then it stops.

There's also a new drip under the left front wheel's suspension. What's that stuff and from where?

Thanks Healeyologists!

If the "drip' is thick it could be from the steering box. if it is thin, either brake fluid or more likely the LF shock is leaking.

If it quits leaking fluid, DO NOT DRIVE it, it is out of oil! LOL. You should check the brake fluid level, and also remove the wheel and look for the source. Good luck.

Short of redesigning the crankshaft seals, you won't ever get the car to stop dripping a few drops when you shut it off. Its the design of the seal, they did it when factory fresh.

The leak from the suspension area is something you need to find and fix ASAP though. It will be one of the things Dave said.
