My MF135 Tractor has developed a leak round the bottom pulley. New gasket fitted round the timing gear but leak persists round crankshaft gear/pulley. How can I fix this?

Replace oil seal, check if pulley has grooves worn by the old seal. If it has resleeve with a resleeve kit from auto spares shop. Refit new oil seal & resleeved pulley.

Good morning, I have a 2002 Renault Clio 1.4 16v, There is an oil leak on the main crank pulley side, above the crank pulley, I cant see where the leak is, can some one help?

the most likely causes are cam cover seal. camshaft seals or the front cover/crankshaft oil seal the only way is to clean it all off ie a jet wash or solvent then run until you can see the relevant area. the most leaks in that area are caused by the camshaft oil seals on that engine

How to install a new camshaft in a Morris minor 1098cc while engine is in the car

If the engine block has the pressed steel side covers through which the cam followers can be removed it is possible but completely impractical to do in-situ without those covers as the engine needs to be turned upside down to allow the cam to be removed.

It is best practice to replace the followers with a new cam and to coat all surfaces with moly grease prior to fitting and during fitting. After fitting check the end float referring to the repair manual and then fit the correctly aligned timing sprockets with a new chain and rubber rings.
Leave all the timing cover bolts very loose and centralise the seal by temporarily fitting the crank pulley, then tighten the cover bolts a little at a time until the cover is nipped. Remove the pulley and complete the tightening of the cover.

The descriptions contained in the official repair manual are very good and should be referred to directly if possible. Examine the distributor drive gear for wear before refitting and replace if any is apparent.

After refitting everything start the engine and allow it to idle only long enough for oil to circulate then condition the new camshaft by increasing the rpm to about 2000 for a minute or two, then increase to 2500 for another couple of minutes and finally for a minute at 3000 then back down to 2000 for a couple of minutes.

when replacing seals on a cam one rule to remember is if other seals were bad then most likely all are and its best to replace all of them

The camshaft seal from dealership is too small in diameter, allowing oil to sling out around the outside groove. The seal is "OEM". It is the 2.5 four cylinder, 1989 Dodge Spirit. Aftermarket...

May have to add some blue rtv to the seal, allowing to dry before assembling, but this seal, depending on whether metal rotates or moves around it, may need to have the adjacent parts replaced with new metal parts to make the oem or aftermarket seal work right.

Unfortunately, the metal may have a defect in it causing the camshaft seal to leak.

Good luck on this repair.

1995 toyota camry leaking oil from behind the timing belt cover. Isn't this a major repair? Is the leak more than likely a camshaft seal?

If you haven't had the timing belt replace (60,000 miles is the suggested service intervale) this is an overlap of having the timing belt replaced.
If the timing belt is not due for replacement and its the cam shaft seal that is leaking. Its a pretty easy fix. Remove the top timing belt cover , and the crankshaft sensor wiring you may have to remove the front engine mount . Set #1 piston at TDC, Loosen tensioner w/ spring slip off belt. **Remove sprocket pull out old seal with a sharp pick. Greese and install new seal make sure its flush with its bore . Reistall sprocket. Slide belt over Cam sprocket tighten tensioner. Install cover and mount (if applicable) Check timing marks by turning crank two revolutions.
** If CamSprocket Bolt is difficult to remove then remove valve cover and use a 21mm wrench to hold the Camshaft while you crack off Cam Sprocket Bolt.
You will see the groves on the Camshaft where you can place a wrench to hold the shaft.
After you replaced the seal replace the valve cover gasket ONLY IF YOU HAD TO REMOVE THE COVER TO HOLD THE CAM WHILE REMOVING ITS BOLT.

This is about as major as it gets.

1995 toyota camry leaking oil from behind the timing belt cover. Isn't this a major repair? Is the leak more than likely a camshaft seal?

either the cam seals are leaking or the valve cover gasket is leaking into the timing cover. maybe even head gasket... but in most of the cases like oil leaking from behind the timing cover the camshaft seal is the faulty .and replacing the camshaft solves the problem. no its not a costly part to be replaced. you can get it from a local car repair tech or from service center.they also deal in parts. This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya

Trans leak on a toyota pickup

No there is no internal oil seal in the tail housing.
Maybe you damaged the seal when refitting the tailshaft.. It is easy to do.. Did you grease the seal so the tailshaft wouldn't damage it upon reinsertion?
