These are air conditioner condensation drips....
 A/C WATER LEAKAGE AT EVAPORATOR DRAIN TUBE OPENING 

This condition may be caused by drain tubeblockage, or the heater unit not being properly sealed to the bulkhead.The bulkhead silencer pad may be positioned between the evaporator foampad and the firewall, causing an improper seal. This could cause theevaporator drain tube foam to become deformed and allow water to drainonto the floor.

To eliminate this condition, first check for drain tube blockage.If no blockage is found, install a new evaporator foam pad as describedin this bulletin. Also, inspect the heater assembly for cracks or otherdamage that could cause leakage. If cracks or other damage areobserved, replace the heater assembly.

Hi,

Well this is an expensive repair as such because of the time involved,a reputable garage would check the clutch and gearbox spigot shaft as a matter of course but the seal can only be reached by removal of everything ,if its just a small drip then have it done as and when the clutch needs replacing is the best advice i can give,adding a leak sealer for engines could help as it makes the seal soft again but if the end of the crank is worn then no ,but it could work and often does.and its not that expensive if it saves you a lot of work for now.As for mileage well treat it as a guide only as mileage tampering still goes on and you will never know weither its the garage or a previous owner who didnt want to lose money.but make sure you check oil level in gearbox in case its leaking out of spigot shaft seal .engine oil smells like engine oil but gearbox oil stinks trust me ,trying to get it when it drips up your arms ,,,,.Also as a matter of course check the engine breather as evan a slight blockage here will increase back pressure in engine causing it to leak oil .How long to remove ,,well about 3 hrs roughly if all the bolts come undone on the suspension an hour or so to change seal and check over maybe evan pushing seal in or out a bit to miss wear on crank if any,rebuilding with a strong lad to assist in alignment and moving about another 2/3 hours if it all goes well with no complications .

Oil is coming from rear main seal likely,,,, repair is trans removal .. and oil pan gasket/ rear main seal replaced .......

Rear end oil seal ,a common fault but its expensive to repair although the seal only costs coppers as the gearbox has to come completely out and this will involve dropping the sub frame as well.no short cuts here ,iam afraid ,how bad is the leak ??try some autobox laek sealer additive and put it in the engine oil.also if and when you have it repaired check for a ball bearing blancking plug in end of oil gallery its a possibility ??seen it before .whats the mileage of this vehicle as it sounds like a high mileage reps cars .

Thanks

Low coolant


The best way to check this is with a radiator pressure tester this will allow you to pressurize the system and find out where the leak is.

Shifts into and out of second gear hard. and has slipped a couple of times


this is a fault in the gear box velve block, there are little pistons in this velve block and they have rubber "O" rings on them if there hard or worn they leek oil past them so the gear box presher needs to be high to move them all you can do is have a re-build done on the box

My 88 blazer won't shift out of first gear until its up to 35 to 40 mpg, its a 700 auto. Any suggestions


Check all your vacume lines for leeks.If there are no leeks then may have a bad modulater.There will be one vacume line that goes down your fire wall to your trans.Where the vacume line plugs in,this is your modulater and controls your shifting.The part runs anywhere from $10-15 for a new one and most just screw into the trans or have a fork retainer with a single bolt.This only applies on gas motors.Well good luck and hope this helps.,

Corvette Headlight Motor Problem


Corvettes have a gear box on that motor. It has plastic gears in it. You probably have a gear stripped in that gear box, that lets the motor spin free. You can get repair parts to repair it, or replace the whole motor and gear box. Its an easy fix if your handy. Read all the instructions before you start.

I have a 89 chevy 1500 4x4 with a power steering leek and can't see the line that is leeking because it is going throught the fram after leaving the gear box


A very Fast leak Is Simple to Diagnose
  1. Start Engine with reservoir Full
  2. Have a Helper to sit inside
  3. Go under vehicle and look where you suspect leak is
  4. Have helper turn steering wheel to
  5. RIGHT or LEFT All the way till it stops and hold it there
  6. If you see it Pouring out from the Area suspected.
  7. That WILL be the HIGH PRESSURE Power searing hose.
  8. Under High Demand they have lots of pressure.
The Low side (RETURN will leak ALL the TIME and just Drip unless there is a Large hole in it
Hope I Have Helped
