Help. Massive oil leak after shut off
I bought a 2002 Kia Rio last week. Previous owner said it over heated and they didn't want to mess with it.
So I went to see it. It had an obvious leak in the radiator. The OBD2 only picked up 2 codes, one that isn't a big deal and the other saying it overheated.. So we go ahead and buy it. Drove it onto the tow truck to take it home.
Upon further inspection, there is no serp belt, it seems to have melted off(?). The valve cover was also leaking real bad.
Valve cover was lose, so I tightened that back down, and replaced the spark plugs.
Ordered a new radiator and belt, replaced those.
Here's my issue:
After running long enough to come to operating temp, I shut it off and it DUMPS oil. Didn't seem to leak while warming up, but seriously it threw up under there after I turned the car off.
Any idea what this may be?
Also, does anyone have a copy of a digital copy of the service manual?
Thank you, and I appreciate any help I can get. 😓😊
