Try some 'bead sealer'. I use this stuff religiously.

How to put in a brake booster and master cylinder on a 1989 ford motorhome

Really no different than on small cars unless you have Air brakes. Before doing this, test booster for leaks by spraying water mist on brake booster with engine running.

Engine will run differently or stall if booster draws in water mist. Try suction to remove brake fluid from Master as you will smell brake fluid that you spill or open brake line and let fluid out on both front and rear wheel. You may not need a different brake booster.

Money can be saved by repairing yourself, but what I suggest is bad brake work can cause an accident. Other repairs may not have that potential. At least watch a Video through an internet search, get a HELP CD from an Autoparts store or watch someone in person first.

You will need some quality FLARE wrenches to keep from rounding off the tubing fittings.

Ive had a power steering leak for a little while at first it was small and didnt loss much fluid, but now im lossing power steering fluid in just one day. How do I know if it is a hose that is leaking or...

You need to raise the car, put jack stands underneath for safety and spray some type of degreaser to clean off the oil on the hoses, pump, frame, etc., then wash off with a hose or pressure washer (best). Let everything dry and then have another person crank up the engine while you are underneath looking at pump and hose (be sure your jack stands are securely holding up the car before climbing underneath). If you're losing a lot of fluid each day you should easily be able to see your leak at the pump or hose connections. If it's gotten steadily worse, it probably is the pump seals getting worse.

Check around each wheel on the backside. If the line or fitting is leaking at the wheel, then you should see almost a wetness or oily look within that area. I would suspect a small leak in a brake line at one of the wheels, but you also have the tank, which could have a small crack. Even though you only add it a couple of weeks, there should still be a sign of leaking. Just a reminder, If the fluid gets on the rotors and the brakes are applied often, you run a risk of the wheel setting fire. Good Luck

I have a radiator leak and I need it fixed ASAP but i can't afford a new radiator yet should I use radiator stop leak? I've heard bad things about it and one person even told me it caused her engine to...

I never recommend anyone pour any stop leak in the radiator of any car. But saying that if you are going to replace the radiator and do not have the money to do so now, then go ahead and use Bar's Stop Leak as an emergency repair. Just make sure to flush the system fully, and replace the thermostat when you do replace the radiator.

Oilpan replacement

I will try to save you money. If the pan is leaking around the gasket you many be able to tighten it enough to reseal it. There are some products that can seal spot leaks like "Seal-All". It is like a model airplane glue that resists gas and oil.

For rusted pans you can use "JB Weld" This hardens and strengthens what you put it on. You mix it like bondo and it dries quickly. Your pan does not have much pressure in it except from blowby from the pistons.

Unfortunately I have not had to replace a pan on this series of car. Sometimes you need to lift an engine off its mounts and turn the crank to clear the lobes, the oil sump may clear. A quick look at a Chiltons will confirm this repair. Wanted to give you alternatives to pulling the pan so I answered your repair problem. Good Luck on this.
