    I would like to ask you a few questions. There are two places on the right side of my car engine that are leaking oil. What are the parts of these two places that are leaking oil called? Can I replace it myself after I go to the store or do I need a mechanic? If a mechanic is needed, how much would it cost?

    The first one is the turbo oil drain tube gasket and the second one is the engine breathe tube O' ring.
    You can buy the gasket and replace it. And you may have to replace the breather tube. if you can find an o'ring to fit you can just replace it. Get some brake kleen to clean the engine.

    Cool. Also,be wary of fuel leaks around the injectors and/or the fuel rail.

    Does it leak enough that it drips onto the ground?, if not I wouldn’t get to excited about it.
