I have oil leaking out my exhaust manifold & from the top of my engine when I toke the tank of I found one off the m6 bolts were loose unable to tighten how can I fix the m6 bolt problem.

hai there, have to use a piece of spring that match with your m6 bolt and the hole, then you can tighten.
the other solution is you have to remake or resize the hole and fit it with the bigger size bolt.
hope it help

What are the tightening torques of all clutch plate pressure plate flywheel bolts of 2279cc slant engine vauxhalls

I have some original manuals for the model somewhere and the Kent-Moore service tool for adjusting the valve clearances. There isn't much information in my general data book but the flywheel bolts are 66 Nm.

The clutch cover bolts do have a torque value but I don't have it to hand and have never used it or heard of anyone using it. Good sense will suffice.
The important thing is to tighten the cover bolts a little at a time evenly until tension is felt and then it is sufficient to "knip" them a little further. There should be a spring washer under each cover bolt head and it is important they and the bolts are all identical

Blazer will not start have gas battery is fine

If I understand you right, it sounds like the starter solenoid went bad and could possibly work again when the engine cooled down. The other scenario is that the ignition switch is bad (on steering column) or the neutral safety switch located on the transmission side. A real fluke would be that the starter BOLTS CAME LOOSE AND JAMMED THE STARTER, IF THIS IS THE CASE LOOSEN STARTER BOLTS, WIGGLE STARTER THEN TIGHTEN BOLTS TO SPECS. 25268178-sbjsv11dlntqjzkc4qi5qeet-5-0.gif

Instructions on removing an oil pan to replace gasket on a 1995 saturn SL1

  1. Raise the front of the vehicle and support it safely using jackstands. Remove the plug and drain the engine oil from the pan and crankcase.
  2. Disconnect the fasteners from the exhaust manifold flange and the pipe rear flange, then remove the front exhaust pipe and gaskets from the vehicle.
  3. Remove the engine stiffening bracket and the flywheel cover.
  4. Remove the right wheel and splash shield, then loosen the 4 front motor mount bolts. Back the bolts out about 1 / 2 in. (12mm).
  5. Remove all the oil pan bolts. For vehicles with a manual transaxle, an 8mm flex socket may be used to access the rear oil pan bolts located next to the flywheel.
  6. Using SA9123E, or an equivalent RTV cutter tool, separate the oil pan from the engine. Drive the tool around the pan to shear the RTV seam, then tap the pan sideways with a rubber mallet to loosen.
  7. Pry the engine mount away from the engine as necessary and remove the oil pan. Be careful not to damage or score component surfaces when prying.

To install:
  1. Carefully clean the gasket mating surfaces with a scraper and solvent.
  2. Apply a 0.16 in. (4mm) bead of RTV sealer to the pan flange. Make sure the RTV is applied to the inner side of the flange from the bolt holes as shown.
  3. Install the oil pan within 3 minutes of RTV application and tighten the bolts to 80 inch lbs. (9 Nm).
  4. Tighten the front mount bolts to 37 ft. lbs. (50 Nm).
  5. Install the right splash shield and wheel.
  6. Install the engine stiffening bracket and the flywheel cover.
  7. Install the exhaust pipe. Tighten the pipe to manifold nuts in a crosswise pattern to 23 ft. lbs. (31 Nm) and the pipe to converter bolts to 33 ft. lbs. (45 Nm).
  8. Remove the jackstands and carefully lower the vehicle, then fill the engine crankcase with clean engine oil immediately in order to prevent an attempt to start the engine without oil.
  9. Start the engine and check for leaks.

Sometimes the starter needs a shim installed to help this problem. If there was not a grinding noise with old starter you should be able to install a shim,these shims you can get at your auto parts store. they come in several thicknesses, most times you get 2 or 3 different thicknesses in a pack. Start with the thinner one and loosen the two starter bolts 3 to 4 turns then remove bolt furthest from engine , shim will slide in and slot at end should stradle bolt, align hole at other end and install other bolt and retighten bolts. test starter for noise,if noise is gone your done, if not try next thicker shim till noise is gone sometimes damage to the teeth on the flywheel can cause this noise but try the shims first. Good Luck!

Car makes grinding noise when I try to start,

You may need to install what they call shims in between the starter and the flywheel in order to align it correctly with the flywheel

How do i tension the cam belt on my e36 318i bmw?

to do it correctly you need a tension gauge, however it is possible without. make sure your timing marks are correct,flywheel locked and camshaft locking tool in place. slacken camshaft sprocket bolt and turn clockwise to stop. fit timing belt in an anticlockwise direction starting at the crankshaft, ensure belt is taught on the non tensioned side between sprockets. turn tensioner pully anticlockwise, untill you can turn belt 90 degrees with finger and thumb pressure. tighten tensioner. tighten camshaft sproket bolt to 63nm. Remove all locking tools. turn engine 2 revolutions from the crankshaft pulley by hand. DO NOT START AT THIS STAGE!!!!!!!! refit all locking tools, if at any stage the engine locks or the tools will not refit, you have done something wrong. Go back to stage one. Check belt tension finger and thumb method, retension as required. turn again by hand. re fit all components and start. If you have whining noises the tension is too tight. Flapping or banging noises too loose. This is not a fool proof method and you have to be aware of the failings of fitting timing belts without the correct tools etc. ENGINE DAMAGE WILL OCCUR IF FITTED INCORRECTLY. A good garage should charge no more than 2.5 hours for this work to be carried out, with a warranty. Hope this helps

My car starts ok but a bad banging noise happens ,it is automatic,could it be something to do with the weather,it has antifreeze in help

hi thanks for update if as you say this just happened as you turned key to start? if you say noise is heavy banging and possibly around the rear/of engine adjoining the g/box? this sounds like the adaptor plate that is fixed/secured to crank flywheel and has the torque convertor bolted to it? these plates sometimes crack or the bolts securing t/convertor come loose and causes banging due to movement with the same sudden starting as your symptoms however if you wish to diy check? disconnect earth lead on battery then remove starter motor after disconnection of leads then you should see through starter mountinghole the flywheel? and a series of bolts/heads if you turn engine clockwise by hand use a socket+bar to check these bolts for secure? should have 6 or more?? around the circumference ? if loose? retighten? but if sheared then box has to come out for further investigationas to damage? sorry but let's not think negative waves eh? will keep fingers crossed for good luck ?
