You can try shaking it because the gasket might be the one that is not letting go. make sure you have all your bolts out then try taking a flat head screw driver and gently wiggle it in the seam but don't damage the motor.

My 2001 xterra started making a weird sound between 20 and 35 mph. It sounds like there is a leak in some pressure system.


Common Car Noises and Their Likely Causes Noise More Details Likely Cause Fixing It Clicking noise while turning Starts faint, gradually becomes more noticeable until very loud Failed outer CV joint (constant velocity joint) due to torn boot (most likely) or old age Replace either the whole axle assembly (recommended) or the outer CV joint Water pump noises Difficult to diagnose because of water pump's location Noise usually caused by damage to the bearings in failed water pump Only cure is replacing it. If possible do it at the same time as a timing belt replacement to cut down on labor costs Squeak or squeal from an engine belt Loud, high-pitched squeak or squeal Belts either need adjustment or replacing If belts only squeak when damp, they probably just need adjustment. If they squeak constantly, they probably need to be replaced Exhaust heat shield noises Rattle that you hear when car is idling Damaged heat shield Replace heat shield

I own a Toyota Camry LE 2006 . Recently I took it for a 36 point inspection. The inspector told me that I needed to do some fixtures on the vehice. However, I do not understand the meaning s. Can you...


What engine size? how many miles on the vehicle?

1: Leaking Water pump - How do I notice this in the car ?

Typically you will see a lot of dried up coolant around the water pump. If the coolant level gets low enough it will cause the vehicle to over heat and potentially do a lot of damage.

Water pumps are extremely common on these years.

2. Under Steering components it says Rack is Leaking, Passenger bellow torn open.

The rack is the part that turns the wheels left and right. If a bellow is torn and there is fluid coming out of it than the seals in the rack have gone bad. Eventually enough fluid will leak out and cause the power steering to no longer work and possibly ruin the power steering pump.

3. LF Strut /stunt is seeping.

It means that the oil on the strut is starting to leak out. The strut is what absorbs the bumps in the road and holds your tires down on the road. Eventually the strut will loose its ability to do this and the tires will start to cup. It is not uncommon for struts to show signs of leaking and is usually the first indicator that the strut is starting to fail.

Hope that helped.

I changed my clutch and releasing bearing but the noise is still there. When ever i release the clutch the noise starts like the release bearing problem and when i take off in first and second gear there...


a release bearing will make noise when you push on the clutch, the input shaft bearing will make noise when you release the clutch, the transmission will have to be removed and torn down to replace the bearing.

Is it recommended to change the pulleys, water pump etc when replacing the timing belt?


you don't have to but it would be a good idea since it's all torn down. especially the water pump.

Ok, so I have a 97 ford contour 2L engine. I have taken off everything to get to the water pump but I cant get the damn hose off the thing! Im so close and frustrated! There is no room to get the damn...


You SHOULD replace the hose with NEW - look how hard it is to replace. Just cut the old one off - get new clamps the screw on type and replace it all while you got the engines torn down. This is the way professionals do it because if you come back a week later with a blown hose that is 300.00 labor - you will find a new mechanic.

Best of it.

Leaking from water pump and timing belt is slasded


If you are losing antifreeze out of the water pump, then that is a sympton telling you it's time to replace the water pump. When you say the timing belt is slashed up, do you mean the serpentine belt that runs the power steering pump, ac pump, alternator, and water pump or have you actually torn the engine apart enough to see the timing belt?

If you in fact mean the serpentine belt, chances are it's torn up because either antifreeze got on the belt making it slick enough to get off track and when they get off track, they can get slashed up pretty quick.

Good Luck

Coolant leak


without any more description than this can only guess as to where. The hose end can leak because it's not on properly,< loose, crooked , torn etc. Hose is attached to water pump and it can leak from seal around mounting point or the hole on bottom side of pulley shaft. If leak is from water pump then you should replace it,< to repair seal it has to be removed and putting a new one on is best to complete repair without possibly having it break you down soon after repairing seal>, if it is leaking from hole on pulley shaft it will have to be replaced.
