Broken dipstick removal on 1.8l Nissan Sentra.


There have been issues with dipstick handles breaking off and dipstick stuck in tube. Here is a simple way to remove that broken dipstick. On the valve cover there is a hose that leads to the intake tube. Remove this hose and with a blow nozzle blow compressed air into the valve cover. The broken dipstick will shoot out of the tube. Simply install the new dipstick into the tube.

Twin turbo 80 horse power deutz Diesel engine blows black smoke under load


Diesel engines smoke when under a heavy load. Unlike a gas engines, a diesel engine uses fuel that is more like an oil.Smoking is a good indication the fuel is not completly burning because of loaded engine spee. White smoke indicates the fuel is not ignitingefficiently. Truck, boats, tanks abd anything else using diesel fuel will smoke when it gets more fuel than it can use.. Easing up on the throttle will lessen the smoke but not eliminate.. Of coarse if the demand is lessened by applying less loadyhe fuel consumption drops.Not to worry as long as the smoke doesn't attract the EPA.

Some loss of pick up power and a hissing or air escape/wooosh noise when accelorating. No real change in exhaust, no heavy black smoke just some mild exhaust smoke, but not all the time. Want to know if it...


Look for a leak on the pressure side of the turbo. I dont think the turbo is bad or else it wouldnt make the wooshing noise. You need to put the engine under a load to build turbo boost. Just giving it throttle in neutral wont work. Block the drive wheels up off the ground SECURLEY and put it in gear up to about 35 mph and ride the brake and give it throttle to find out where the leak is and repair from there

Low transmission fluid


Easy....you have to get under the car and remove the filler plug ABOVE the drain plug. You fill it till it comes out of that hole. You have what is called a closed cased transmission. Filling your transmission is very similar to filling a rear differential case.

Hope this helps!

My 1979 chevy bonanza 4wd. pickup has started blowing transmisssion fluid out the dip stick tube,after the truck warms up a few minutes.thank you albert blair


turbo 350? if so it can be that it is over full or sometimes the gears that are in the tranny that sling the tranny fluid up will get bent or worn and will sling oil to the wrong spots and that will cause your gears to get hot and expand and that can cause it to shoot oil up your dip stick

Tranaxle blowing fluid out around dipstick tube. Cause and possible solution?


It is possibly over filled. If not the o ring (seal) on dipstick tube may need to be replaced. Check those two things and see if either one is causing the problem.
