Bad seal. I would get an other and replace what is needed( the whole stem). I would not replace the entire fixture. Take the rest back as defective. But you need to look inside at the seats and make sure they are not scored. If scored, replace the entire part.

Oil leak on motor of a 2003 sunfire 2.2 engine on the front end of motor alternator is covered in oil


Hi,

Let's start by telling you how to diagnose the problem.

Most oil leaks are easily located and repaired by visually finding the leak and replacing or repairing the necessary parts. On some occasions a fluid leak may be difficult to locate or repair. The following procedure may help in locating and repairing most leaks.

Finding the Leak

? Identify the fluid, determine whether it is engine oil, automatic transmission fluid, power steering fluid, etc.
? At what location or point is the fluid leaking from? After running the vehicle at normal operating temperature, park the vehicle over a large sheet of paper, After a few minutes, you should be able to ascertain the approximate location of the leak by the drippings on the paper.
? Visually check around the suspected component. Check around all gasket mating surfaces and hoses for leaks. If your car provides engine oil cooling, check the oil lines leading to the radiator. A mirror is useful for finding leaks in areas that are hard to reach. If the leak still cannot be found, it may be necessary to clean the suspected area with a degreaser, steam or spray solvent. Most car washes provide this service or make it possible for you to do it yourself. Clean the area well, then dry the area. Operate the vehicle for several miles at normal operating temperatures and varying speeds. After operating the vehicle , visually check the suspected component. If you still cannot locate the leak, try using the power method.


The Powder Method

? Clean the suspected area.
? Apply an aerosol-type powder, e.g., face powder, to the suspected area.
? Operate the car under normal operating conditions.
? Visually inspect the suspected component. You should be able to trace the leak path over the white powder surface to the source.


Good luck and all the best

I have a 98 ford expedition that is leaking the freon out when put in, the air compressor is working, how do i get this fixed


You'll have to locate the leak then repair it. To locate a leak in the A/C system you can add dye to it. When the dye leaks out it will show up under a black light. There are also electronic leak detectors but they can be quite pricey.

Leaking antifreeze


could be from numerous locations or just a hose,water pump freeze plug ,you will need to look for antifreez leaks on the floor to get general location of leak, and then try to pin point for external leaks ,leaks under pressure can be confusing,they will beharder to pinpoint,sinse they spray coolant everywhere.

I need to replace the push button diverter valve


Take off the knob (screw on bottom of knob)
Take off the face plate (two screws usually hidden by knob)
If you can get a crescent wrench on the diverter's hex shaped part, carefully put the wrench on just the diverter valve portion-it's like a quarter inch wide. righty tighty, lefty loosey. If it doesn't turn, hit it with WD 40, blaster, liquid wrench,etc. and let that soak in. If it still won't turn, call a plumber because you don't want to brute force it-copper pipes bend and break really easily. Don't let your life become a Lucy skit for the price of an hour of plumber.
If it spun and came out, take it to the plumbing store and find the replacement part. There are only two; one chrome, one bronze, as far as I know from my bathroom adventures. Get some teflon tape as well.
Take the matching new one, wrap the threads with a wrap of teflon tape, and carefully thread it in where the old one went by hand until you can't turn it more. Then go another turn or two with the crescent wrench being delicate, not like big angry gorilla. Test it before you replace the knob and face plate to see if it leaks-you don't want it piddling behind your wall. If it works and doesn't piddle, replace the faceplate and then the knob and take a shower.

1995 isuzu rodeo antifreeze leak


Can't help locate the leak, but I have the same problem. I can tell you that in my situation, leak is not coming from the hoses behind the intake mainfold as I removed it and looked. I am going to try and find the freeze plugs next, but have been unsuccessful locating any information on the location via Haynes manual or internet.
