SOURCE: drilled hole in intake manifold at upper radiator outlet

Did the bolt break off flush with the top of the hole? or if you remove the cover is some bolt sticking up? if there is try and use vice grips to get ahold if the bolts if it is flush then drill the bolt out and re-tap the hole. Way cheaper and likely less work too...

Drilled t-stat bolt hole too deep water in oil. Now what?


many engines have bolts that are threaded into the water jacket
the procedure is to use a quality liquid thread sealer when installing the stud and tensioning it up
the sealer then goes hard but pliable and a seal is formed in the threads yet the stud can still be removed at a later time with out thread damage to either component
maybe you can use the same principle for your problem

I'm trying to change the oil 1995 Jeep GC Laredo 5.2 liter v8, the drain bolt is stuck. I've used liquid wrench, impact force, breaker bar, Dremel an Easy Out w/driall, now burning oil. What do I do?


If you take it out I would spray it with liquid wrench and try an impact wrench.. But make sure you have tap set and replacement bolt....

SO IF YOU DEMAGE THE SCREW AND THREAD SIMPLY THREAT LARGER WHOLE AND TAP WITH NEW LARGER SCREW...

This engine burn oil but GOOD FIX IS ENGINE HONEY FOR 3 OR 4 DOLLARS they have the stop smoke version too.. But this helps if the issue is in the valves in the heads even if in rings it will help....
Note... If the engine is bad may want to mess with it too much.. Place engine honey in it and buy new engine... Many offered new under $1500...many used engines for $400. But be careful with oil pan... You could if you feel like NOTHING GOING TO STOP YOU DRILL HOLE IN OIL PAN DRAIN OIL THEN FLUSH ENGINE AND TAP AND DRILL THAT HOLE AS TEMP FIX UNTIL YOU FIND NEW ENGINE.... this trucks do very well with repairs because of solid frame money spent give a good return... Many will tell you they loved thier ZJ and for other like me I totally over hauled my 97 because the solid base so good that repairs make this truxk run like new feel new and lost for years..... Fix it right many many parts out there and alot pro s and afyer market for 5.2 ZJ Gc these are loved trucks... Join blog and get a good tool set and engine.. Use geek parts. Com great parts cheap you Ned it for the Jeep save hundred and get that beast back to life... Good luck

How do i remove a broken harmonic balancer bolt in my 1999 mitisubisii montero sport


are we talking about one of the small bolts that hold a belt pully onto the balancer? Or the large bolt in the middle that holds the balancer to the crank? Either one will be the same procedure, but if it is a small bolt and proves troublesome to get to, you can always remove the balancer and take it to a machine shop to aide you in the removal. If it is the main bolt in the crank shaft you will have to do it in place.
You will need a good sharp center punch and hammer to ding the exact center of the broken bolt. Then a good drill bit and drill set on slow (you drill too fast and you generate too much heat you just accomplish work hardening the broken bolt and dulling the bit.) anyway, you will also need a bolt extractor. Make sure your drill bit is the right size for the extractor and the extractor is the right size for the bit. Punch the dead center of the bolt and start drilling you will want some high temp oil to lube the bit and keep it cool while drilling, you also need to make sure that you hold the drill at a right angle and keep it straight all of the way in until it is deep enough for the extractor to grab the inside of the hole you have made. Strike the extractor solidly with your hammer to set it and cross fingers that when you try to back the broken bolt out it moves. If this fails you might need to completely drill the hole larger and install an insert, or heli-coil to repair the hole.

How to set the head torque settings for a peugeot 207 gt 1.6 2010


Forget the manual stuff as they dont do it that way on the assembly line ,what you do is to start in the middle then work alternativly either side outwards.Using a rachet then repeat the procedure with the torque wrench petrol setting is around 60 lbs for this engine with alloy head never mind the new bolts just make sure the bolts holes are clean with no oil or water in them and the bolts are left in a bucket with some diesel for a while ,when i strip anything i always throw all the nuts and bolts into a small bucket with a drop of diesel in it to clean them up and lubricate them before refitting ,wire brush the threads on the head bolts if carboned up or rusty .Also check and change any of the plastic housing for the water pipes as they do split or deform with time causing no end of problems and make sure the thermostat has a small 3/4 mm hole drilled in the flange around the side of the stat to allow easy self bleeding their is a bleed screw as well on the heater hose at the back of the engine but these modern stats dont have the old fashioned bleed hole in them which can cause problems to a lesser weekend mechanic

YOU NEED TO BUY CORRECT SIZE NEW OIL DRAIN PLUG. YOU TO KNOW YOUR THREAD SIZE ON NEW OIL DRAIN BECAUSE YOU NEED THE RIGHT TAP AND DRILL BIT TO CENTER DRILL THE BROKE BOLT IN SIDE OIL PAN YOU NEED A CENTER PUNCH TO PUNCH A SMALL ENOUGH TO START THE DRILL BIT DEAD CENTER OF BROKE BOLT.OIL PAN NEED TO BE REMOVED TO DRILL HOLE STRAIGHT.THIS IN NOT A EASY JOB.EITHER YOU REPAIR OR DAMAGED OIL PAN DRAIN PLUG HOLE. YOU DRILL BIT HAS TO STRAIGHT WHILE DRILLING HOLE DEAD CENTER OF BROKEN BOLT YOU NEED TO MEASURE LENGHT OF OIL DRAIN PLUG BOLT. THEN USE A PIECE TAPE ON DRILL BIT WRAP A PIECE TAPE AROUND DRILL BIT THE DEPT YOU NEED TO DRILL THROUGH BOLT. LIKE I SAY THIS JOB TAKE SKILL AND A STRAIGHT HAND. BECAREFUL WITH DRILL AND WEAR SAFETY GOGGLES. DONT DO THIS FIX IF YOU NOT SURE OF MECHANIC SKILLS YOU WILL EITHER DAMAGE THE OIL PAN OR FIX THE PROBLEM.

What to do if water pump bolt breaks,97 mercury mountaineer


You have to drill the remainder of the bolt out of the hole. Start by taking a center punch and punch the dead center of the piece stuck in the hole, then take a small drill bit and get to work on the punch hole. Use a little wd40 on the bit to keep it from overheating and go about half speed on the drill (time consuming prosses). After you drilled deep enough grab the next size bit and continue to do this until you can fit a good size extracter in the hole to pull it out. If you do not have an extracter then continue to drill untill the bolt is completly out then retap new treads and find an oversized bolt.

I snaped the #1 intake bolt how big of a issue is this


It's a big issue, it will leak vacuum, water, or both. You might get lucky that it snapped off aboe the head, if so, remove the intake, and go to Sears, they have the new bolt removing sockets, I have one and it works great. Auto Zone might have a set for around $35.00, this is what I bought for any emergency. If it's below the head surface, you can chance it or take the head to a machine shop to get the screw eased out. If your good with a hand drill you might get a hole in the bolt and ease it out yourself, those bolts are pretty hard to drill while in the vehicle.

Bolt broke when I was trying to change the thermoustat


if you take the t-stat housing off and you have some bolt sticking up, you can use WD40 and a vise grip and work it back and forth to free it up and remove it. if it broke off flush or below the block you will need to centre punch it and drill out the centre of the bolt and use an easy out kit. Good kits will tell you what size to drill the hole dependant on bold size. You must be very careful not to drill off centre or go too deep and damage the engine block.

Bolt snapped on 1997 chevy cavalier


What bolt?In the center of the pulley or one that mounts to the engine block?If it's in the pulley go to autozone and get a replacement.If it is broken off in the block you can grab it with vice grips if it is sticking out and try to unscrew it.If it is flush with or recessed into the block you will most likely have to drill it out then retap the hole to run a new bolt into it.WARNING! Drilling at an angle or drilling too wide or too deep can breech the oil galley or the water jacket or crack the block and all but ruin the engine! If you do it yourself BE CAREFUL of what you are doing! If you aren't sure about doing it yourself,take it to a reputable mechanic or machine shop to have done! Hope this helps.Good luck!
