SOURCE: I have a 2000 AWD

you are correct on the whole sequence you explanined, just be sure to have a pan to catch the fluid that will come out of the trans when you pull the output shaft out.. as far as how tight to put the nut back on, cant really anwer that doesnt have a crush sleeve or anything in to to worry about messing up, so as long as its tight you will be fine, just dont crank on it excessively.

SOURCE: Can I use JB Weld

I've done this and had little success with it while others I've talked to said it worked. Call a few auto parts store and see if they know of any plastic welders in the area. Most people do not know that such a thing exists and it could end up being a relatively inexpensive solution. If you do have to get a new radiator be sure to take your old one to the scrap yard. Depending on the amount of copper in it you could put $20 or $30 in your pocket.

Can a non fouler replace heilcoil for temporary fix ? Or can I use thread insert instead of heilcoil and don't know what size 14mm or 18 mm 2001 toyota camry 4 cylinder thread is stripped trying to repair...

If the thread is stripped you wont be able to get a good seal even with a non fouler or a threaded insert. They still need something to get a grip on. The thread size is 14mm. If you try to tap it bigger or use an insert you risk cracking the head. If you need a quick fix to get down the road you can JB weld the spark plug back in. This won't last long since JB weld dissolves in gas but it could get you by for up to a day. JB weld is hard to get off after but once again, soak it in gas to help clean it up. Get a helicoil when you can. Don't let a quick fix lead to long lasting problems.

My 99 Mercedes benz clk320 has an oil leak on the oil pan...can JB Weld be used to seal the oil pan

As good as JB Weld is, I doubt that it would work in that application. The bad oil pan gasket may still let the oil out and it will travel along the oil pan rail looking for another avenue to drip out onto your floor or driveway. Best solution is to pull the oil pan off and have a new gasket put on. But if you try it, post back and let us know if it works. I would like to know another good use for JB W!

Leaking differential fluid. what could of made a hole in transfer case.appears to be on top side of differential. if so how do i repair it.

Hello, broken gear teeth can make holes in the case or if you were off-roading something could have hit it. If you are not the original owner, a flying front driveshaft could have knocked a hole in it.

Biggest problem I would worry about is a loose part inside the case. If there is a pan or drainplug, take it off and see if more than fluid comes out. JB Weld is good for sealing something like this. Depending on the metal, you can even weld Aluminum now. There are products for heating cast metal now too.

If the area is larger than a quarter, and you decide to try JB- Weld, clean off the sides and sand the finish to bond the chemical. Then gradually work the hole smaller with additional JB until the hole is sealed.

2001 VW Golf Windshield Wipers

You will need to pull the wiper arm off the shaft. The gears on the shafts are most likely worn out. Have you tried to use the wipers when they where stuck or frozen down?
You can buy a tube of JB weld or even better yet JB Underwater Weld. Put a good amount on both shafts and replace wiper arms and secure them down. Wait a couple days at LEAST before using wipers again to ensure that the weld product holds and cures.

Don't waste your time with stop leak. It gums up everything- the radiator and the block. Spend the money and get a radiator. A patch is temporary at best and probably will start leaking again.
