SOURCE: Oil pan eplacement or repair?

You can try JB Weld after you get it off. I would not try any chances with an oil pan. If that oil pan pours out all of your oil going down the road you will ruin your engine. If it is cheaper to get it welded you can try that. I can't comment on removing that oil pan. You should be able to jack it up and look at it. If there is nothing in the way that you have to remove like a cross member, it should be a piece of cake. Best thing to do is to buy a manual for that can and decide for yourself it it will be easy for you to do. I am a Chevrolet person myself. I am not up on everything in every new car. I usually buy a book on every car that I get or work on. Sometimes something looks very simple and it turns out to be a big headache. I do not know what year your car is or how the motor sits in it. You could call a garage to be on the safe side. I can not make a call when I can not see it myself. I gave you the answer as to what I would do. Be careful not to strip out the bolts going back on. When you take it off you will be able to see the bottom side of your engine. If it is old you might want to think about doing anything that you can reach like changing the oil pump. Just some advice while you have everything at reach.

Do not take any chances on that oil pan. Good luck. Rate this as a Fixya if this solves your problem.

SOURCE: plastic radiator repair

I doubt you can actually fix it "yourself", but you can save lots of money by taking it to a radiator shop instead of buying a used or new radiator. They can replace the plastic tank for the bad side, but it is usually the drivers side because this is where the hottest water exits the engine and causes the plastic to crack. I removed the radiator myself and took mine to a shop and they repaired it for $40........cannot repair yourself because the tank has to be crimped on!!!! And radiator "stop leak" products will not work because they are for metal tanks!!!

You can clean the area really good with degreaser and apply JB Weld but that is only a temporary fix it will leak again

I have a 2000 nissan xtterra that is leaking anti freeze by the rad but i cant find any holes. what could it be


There is a small bypass hose that goes from the thermostat housing into the top of the water pump. You have to disassemble quite a few things to even get a look at it. It is a common problem and needs to be fixed as soon as possible. It is located directly above your timing belt and the antifreeze will cause your belt to degrade and fail, then you will be replacing bent valves.

A radiator shop can replace just one side tanks

The best solution is to replace the entire radiator

Camry GRACIA 2.2L developED a crack in the plastic radiator top tank AND engine heats up and pressurises the radiator. How do I overcome this?


I think it is not a cost effective thing to try plastic welding the top tank. Just buy another rad off eBay or similar and put it in. Not a hard job. Replace the hoses too, and the coolant unless it is dead new.

The top tank is plastic, and it has gone brittle from heat and age. There are shops which will weld the crack, but far better to fit a new radiator, and hoses too. You will have better cooling and a much longer life from it.

Does anyone know a way to fix a crack in a plastic radiator? I know a plastic welder would work but I don't have one nor enough money to buy one.


these are not made to repair for the plastic is a carbon plastic which can not be soldered It will continue to make the crack enlarge if you try. A new radiator tank must be used if you want it to work for you again

Cant find were to put the stop leak solution in my radiator for mazda millenia 1998. not the plastic tank.


You can take off the upper radiator hose and pour it straight into the radiator or some people pour it in the plastic tank but I would be conserned with it getting clogged.
