SOURCE: have oil in my radiator fluid reservoir tank (1996 v6 3.8)

Twice in two years now my Saab 9-5 has had a pin-hole in the oil cooler, which has caused oil to flow into the reservoir. A way to tell is if coolant/oil is coming out of the reservoir cap. The reservoir cap is rated for the pressure of the coolant system, which is significantly lower than the oil pressure. When there is a hole in the oil cooler, oil will be forced out at relatively high pressures, causing the reservoir to fill and then over pressurize and spill out of the cap.

SOURCE: Where is the windshield fluid reservoir tank, and

if you had a picture of the engine compartment it would be easier, i tried looking, but am having problem finding a pic of it. generically, it will be located along the edges of the engine compartment = in the front corners, or along the edges on either side. don't be frustrated is you can't see the tank as some manufacturer have "hidden" them below and all you will see is the cap, has some writing on it that says windshield fluid or a little picture of a windshield wiper

How does Chevy dealer add power steering fluid to the 2007 Chevy Malibu sealed unit?


Are you sure it has Hydraulic Power Steering ? Could have Electronic Power Steering ! What engine does yours have ? If it is hydraulic it isn't sealed , would have a fluid Reservoir ! Look up under dash drivers side , will see a electric motor on the steering column .

How to fix AUDI steering oil owerflows from reservoir


Check up the hydraulic power steering pump.
See picture below for 1.6, 1.8 liters Audi (4 cyl.) engines:

If you find leaks and noise when runing, the hydraulic vane type pump is damaged. The pump inputs air inside and mix air with oil resulting foam. Therefore fluid volume inside steering instalation rises. Then pressure overflows oil from the reservoir. You need repair or replace hydraulic vane type steering pump.

WHAT HAPPENS IF HYDRAULIC OIL IS PUT INTO THE CLUTCH RESERVOIR?


if the clutch works it should be okay but I would not do it because brake/clutch fluid is designed with specific properties for this purpose. If you hydraulic fluid is already in the reservoir only and not throughout the system then you could suck out the reservoir with a turkey baster and replace with correct fluid. The CORRECT solution if hydraulic fluid has been introduced to the system id to bleed the entire system from the clutch slave cylinder back to the master cylinder.

I was needing to know a way to flush the old contaminated hydraulic fluid out of a clutch system on a 1994 Ford Escort.


If the contaminated fluid is just old brake/clutch fluid which has too high a moisture content, then just bleed the clutch in the normal way but keep bleeding until what comes out is fresh clean fluid. Obviously, you need to keep a careful check on the fluid reservoir level as you do the job to ensure that you don't allow the level to drop low enough to pull air into the system.

If the clutch hydraulics have been contaminated with mineral oil though, then you must completely drain and strip the master cylinder and slave cylinder afterwards and replace all the seals after washing all internal components in fresh brake fluid. Flushing first just ensures that no contamination remains in the hoses to ruin the new seals when you refill the system.

Is there a special way to bleed the brake system on a 2001 catera


  1. Place a clean shop cloth beneath the brake master cylinder to prevent brake fluid spills.
  2. With the ignition OFF and the brakes cool, apply the brakes 3-5 times, or until the brake pedal effort increases significantly, in order to deplete the brake booster power reserve.

Fill the brake master cylinder reservoir with DOT-3 brake fluid from a clean, sealed brake fluid container. Ensure that the brake master cylinder reservoir remains at least half-full during this bleeding procedure. Add fluid as needed to maintain the proper level. Clean the outside of the reservoir on and around the reservoir cap prior to removing the cap and diaphragm.
  1. Install a proper box-end wrench onto the RIGHT REAR wheel hydraulic circuit bleeder valve.
  2. Install a transparent hose over the end of the bleeder valve.
  3. Submerge the open end of the transparent hose into a transparent container partially filled DOT-3 brake fluid from a clean, sealed brake fluid container.
  4. Have an assistant slowly depress the brake pedal fully and maintain steady pressure on the pedal.
  5. Loosen the bleeder valve to purge air from the wheel hydraulic circuit.
  6. Tighten the bleeder valve, then have the assistant slowly release the brake pedal.
  7. Wait 15 seconds, then repeat these steps until all air is purged from the same wheel hydraulic circuit.
  8. Repeat this procedure with the LEFT FRONT, then LEFT REAR and finally the RIGHT FRONT.
  9. Fill the brake master cylinder reservoir to the maximum-fill level with DOT-3 brake fluid from a clean, sealed brake fluid container.
  10. Slowly depress and release the brake pedal. Observe the feel of the brake pedal.

Clutch reservoir is dry on my daughters 96 Eagle Talon the car will not go into any gear.How do I flush the reservoir?If I add oil could this solve the problem


Do not put oil in this system.It uses brake fluid in the reservoir.If the system doesn't have any fluid in it, there is a leak, and both the clutch master cyl and the clutch slave should be replaced. They both were used the same amount of times, and wear evenly. When you add fluid, the clutch master cyl compresses the fluid down the line/hose into the clutch slave cyl. This depresses the clutch fork/arm and disengages the clutch disc so the input shaft into the transmission stops moving, allowing the trans to be put into gear. LOOK FOR THE FLUID LEAKING TO ISOLATE THE PROBLEM. This is a closed system, and the fluid never gets used, unless there is a leak.

1998 Mercedes Convertible Top Slow and Drips Oil


Your top is moved by an electric motor wich operates a hydraulic pump which moves two pistons which move the top.
The "oil" thet you see is probably hydraulic fluid leaking from the drain hole in the car near the tire.
You have a leak in the hydraulic system.
You need to start at the motor/pump/reservoir unit behind the seat and find the leak.
Most commonly, it is a bad line. Second in popularity is a bad cylinder(s). Third on the list is the motor/pump/reservoir.
If you replace a line, do them all. If you replace a cylinder, replace them both.
