My 1985 nissan maxima keeps low oil pressure,I constantly have to fill it with up to qts. of oil,any solutions

Place a clean flattened cardboard under your car and see if it's leaking out. If it's not dripping oil, check your radiator for the presence of oil using a dye test kit available at NAPA. If there is a leak coming from under your car, try to determine from where it's dripping. Most common is an oil filter that hasn't been tightened properly or leaking oil sump bolt. A 1/4 turn on the oil filter should stop the leak, if its the sump... a new screw washer for the sump bolt will usually cure that. Check around the sump mounting bolts, if a fresh leak is evident, you will need a new sump gasket, don't try to tighten the existing bolts as it make leak worse! Tighten to torque specs. Otherwise, you are burning it up... exhaust smoke should be dark instead of light gray. White smoke indicates a blown head gasket and the oil is getting into the engine.

Front seal replacement

Hi No Name, The most likely place of the leakage on your car is the front crankshaft oil seal. The oil pan (sump) is fitted with silicon from a tube as the gasket. It rarely leaks unless someone has broken the seal, which is difficult and usually needs a special tool for removal. To replace it you'll need to disconnect the battery, remove the PK (Serpentine) belt and the power steering pump belt and the front engine mounting (Front of the engine but fitted onto the side of the body) Next remove the crank shaft pulley, (a difficult part of the job, made easier if the starter motor is removed and a dog tooth tool is bolted into the most suitable starter motor attachment bolt holes, the dog tooth is used to lock the flywheel while removing the crankshaft bolt holding the pulley (which is torqued to 76 nm when re-fitting. Use a puller to remove the pulley from the crankshaft and then remove the ten mm bolts holding the two parts of the timing belt cover. Set the engine to T.D.C (Top Dead Center) and look for the match marks for re-timing the engine when refitting the timing belt. Once alignment has been achieved release the bolt holding the tensioner bearing and push it all the way open, releasing all tension from the timing belt and remove the timing belt. The oil seal can now be removed from its housing. Fit a replacement oil seal smearing a light coating of grease on the seal lip. Press evenly into place, making sure of an even flush fit. Replace the timing belt with a new belt, Re-align the belt so that the match marks align precisely to those on the gears by fitting and adjusting on the straight side of the belt. Once correctly fitted, gently release the tensioner bearing until it comes into full contact with the belt and hand tighten the fixing bolt and then loosen half one turn. Remove the dog tooth tool. Screw in the crankshaft pulley bolt and apply enough force to take up slack and tighten the tensioner. Remove the crankshaft bolt and then reassemble opposite to disassembly. Remember to refit the dog tooth for re-tightening the crankshaft bolt.

Mitsubishi pajero how to replace front crank seal housing

Do we take it that you want to replace the front crank seal?
If so it will almost certainly require that you drain the cooling system and remove the rad and surrounding cowl. The nut in the centre of the pulley is usually very tight and will likely require a 3/4 drive socket to free it. You will have to remove all the drive belts on the pulley and then remove the pulley. If its a manual trans then select top gear, have an assistant stand on the brakes while you undo the crank bolt. An auto is more difficult. If you have sufficient access then use an airwrench to loosen the bolt. Remove the pulley, pry the seal out, clean up, fit the new seal carefully to ensure its squarely seated in the housing, grease the seal edge and replace everything removed. The only thing you will need ideally is the torque figure for the crank bolt but you will get some idea when removing it. You could always mark the bolt head and the pulley face and retighten to the same position.

How do I change the cambelt on a 2008 Hyundai Getz 1.4

with your eyes closed and one hand behind your back if you follow my smple instructions ,firstly remove no1 spark plug and bring it to TDC using a long thin screwdriver then drill a 10mm hole in the bellhousing to align with starter ring gear ,then tap it and make a long bolt with a point on the end by grinding it down but a put a nut on it first so you can back it off so the thread is ok ,then screw this into the hole to lock the flywheel ,now its safe to remove the front pulley bolt as this car is on a taper with no keyway on the end of the crank,then take the pulley off and this allows removal of the timing cover .Now a touch of white paint on the cam pulleys to the back plate ,slacken the belt adjuster and remove the belt ,then take of the adjuster and any idler pulley ,use a thin screwdriver to remove the thin seal ,drop into a drop of petrol and clean out best you can ,then a can of brake and clutch cleaner and spray teh bearing balls a bit ,shake dry light oiling with engine oil the repack with lm waterproof grease ,not the black grease for a drive shaft .Refit the seal then refit the idlers and put the belt on making sure the cams dont mose a pair of mulgrips help here to hold the belt to the cam gear .Once all on and tight refit teh covers and the front pulley then tighten the pulley bolt with a decent snap on knuckle bar of 80cms and a tube over the end as you need somewhere around 120lbs to stop the crank gear pulley wheel from turning on the taper as you what happens if this moves ,yes new valves ,simple isnt it ,also you will need a bottle jack with some wooden blocks to support the sump whilst you remove engine mounting wood under the sump or you will break it as its ally .Should take no more than two hours including tea break and a ciggy

The crank shaft front pulley bolt on a Toyota Camry 94 (5S-FE motor) is seized. How can I stop the motor from turning to get the bolt undone? Its an auto.

If the bolt is seized and u tried everything!
The last resort would be to torched the BOLT untill it loosen up!
Removing and torching it, might as well replace the CRANK OiL SEAL, carefull not to burn the CRANK PULLEY, some have a RUBBER insulation in the mid pulley!

Oil leak coming from "crank"

There are two main oil seal's on the crank,
1, Is behind the bottom pull, at the front of the engine. you will have disconnect the battery leads then the oil will have to be drained. After that you jack the car up and support the car with axle stand's. If the down pipe from the exhaust is directly under the engine sump? take it off.
Undo the pin's on the sump and any pipe's connected, next take the bottom pulley off.
Thats one seal.
2, You will have to take the transmission off, then the clutch and the flywheel. To get to the second one.
It will be hard. Good Luck!!

I dont know where the oil pump is on my 89 toyota

On a 22RE the oil pump is on the timing cover behind the crank pulley/harmonic balancer,it has the crank timing pointer built onto it,generally they don't leak around the pump seal but as Monster80 pointed out they leak from the front main seal wich is installed on the front of the oil pump,pretty common for the 22R/RE to leak around the timing cover gaskets or out the bolt holes on the timing cover also,usually due to uneven tourqe on the bolts,to check the front main seal you need to look at the the crank from the underside right after you've shut the motor down,if the seals bad you'll see oil starting to form a drop on the backside of the pulley or the front of the oil pump housing.

Bad oil leak front main seal in 1986 toyota 4 runner

You need to walk the pulley off.You will need three long bolts that match the thread in the balancer.Undo the centre bolt about half way and bolt the puller to the pulley.the centr bolt is used so the puller has something to push on in the centre Once you have wound the puller up and pulls the balancer until its stopped by the centre bolt.Undo the puller so you can unwind the centre bolt some more and repeat until the balancer falls off.Every thing must be evenly bolted,puller must be mounted squarely or you will have real trouble removing it.Unless the seal can be removed and replaced from the outside of the timing cover you should not need to replace anything else.Did you check the oil pressure switch as the amount of oil your talking about doesnt usualy leak that badly from a balancer seal
