Question about 1985 GMC C2500

2 Answers

All the engine oil is getting pumped into the air cleaner. The break power booster needs replacing and I'm wondering if this can be a factor due to vacum?

The engine oil keeps getting somehow forced into the air cleaner case while driving.

Engine oil into the air cleaner i think would mean your engine is building to much internal pressure check pcv vacuum and oil are two separate things vacuum is created by the pistons moving up and down engine oil should remain below pistons unless you have oil seeping into places it shouldn't be

Oil getting in the breather assembly is from blow by. Is the pcv valve working? If so I would suspect a high mileage engine and not much can be done other than rebuild

Why is it hard to push on the brakes


The most obvious cause for a hard pedal is simply not enough vacuum. Check the brake power booster by pumping on the brake pedal while the car isn't running. Continue pumping until you've "bled off" the vacuum from the booster. Hold the pedal down while you start the car. The pedal should go down a bit more beneath your foot. If it doesn't, then you should examine the connection between the vacuum hose of the brake power and the engine's vacuum.
Replace the brake power booster if the connection's fine, which would fix the hard brake pedal problem.

It may be your calipers need replaced. Check them for signs of wear. Look at the metal spring where the brake pads sit.
Apply tension to the pad and see whether you hear a pop. If you do, the brake pad is moving too much on the bracket. Replace the caliper. This could help the hard brake pedal.

I have no compression on my 1998 corolla what could be the problem ?


This phenomenon is called blow by. This usually happens when the engine compression escapes through the worn out piston rings due to the severely scratched cylinder wall. It also happens after the engine becomes severely overheated due to the loss of coolant or the car is driven with ruptured element air cleaner for longer period of time or due to the aging factor.
In this case the engine requires complete overhaul. It includes the replacement of the following parts to help enable the engine to perform satisfactorily as long as for many years without any problem.
The dire requirement here is to maintain the oil clearances of various parts during the machining process to ensure the reliability and dependability of the engine.
Engine parts to be replaced with original:
- Engine valves.
- Valve guides,
- Piston set (oversize).
- Ring set (oversize).
- Main and big end bearing shell set (Oversize).
- Crankshaft thrust (oversize).
- Timing belt and bearing set.
- Gasket set complete kit.
- Oil filter.
- Element air cleaner.
- Engine oil.
- Silicone RTV Grey.
- Radiator coolant.
Machining:
- New valves and guides fitting and valve seat redressing.
- Valve clearance adjustment.
- Cylinder re-boring and honing.
- Crankshaft grinding, main and big end bearings fitting, and main line checking/ correction.
- Connecting rod alignment.
- Radiator cleaning and cooling system inspection.
Hope that works.
Thanks for visiting Fixya.

Most likely your vacumn power brake booster has failed. It is not rebuildable. You will need to buy a new one.
