When to change timing belt some say 100,000km

most manufacturers recommend a timing belt change at 100.00 klms as this is the optimum period that the belt manufactures warrant their product for
there are factors that will reduce this period such as continued high rpms, dusty conditions, idler bearing failure and oil leaks
Oil is the biggest destroyer of rubber timing belts and it comes from cam shaft seals , hydraulic belt tensioner leaks and crank shaft seals
basically if you keep an eye on the cover and look for oil and dust marks then any time after 90.000 klms would be an ideal time to consider the belt change

Peugeot 207 1.4, small oil leak from underneath, added engine stop leak, how long before it stops leak?

oil leaks from underneath can come from front crank shaft seal --rear crank shaft seal --oil filter--sump gasket---power steering ---leaking rocker cover gaskets ---leaking oil pressure switch.--transmission seals. I suggest that you have the engine professionally cleaned and then put it on a hoist while running to see where the oil is from

Oil pump leak toyota camry

You need to remove the front part of the oil pump and reseal it with an oil pump reseal kit from the parts store. Do yourself a favor and put in a new oil pump shaft seal as well. While you are at it change the front crank and the front cam seals, as they are all made from the same type of rubber.

Oil leak on 1994 corolla crank seal has been changed

IS the oil coming from the same place? Was it a reputable shop that replaced it? If the answer is yes and the vehicle is high mileage, there may be an issue with end play or runout on the crank and this could be bearings that are worn. Could be a whole engine overhaul that you are looking at. There are also cases where the seal can cause a wear ring on the shaft and the shaft has to be replaced.

Oil leaking from engine 1994 corolla

This could be run out or end play on the shaft. That would mean replace the bearings. IT would also be seal has worn a grove in the shaft. If it is worn, flame spray can be used to rebuild the shaft. IT would be cheaper than a new crank.

it could also be the oil pan gasket, or the manifold gasket. if it's the manifold gasket, when you remove the manifold to replace it, take the time to clean out the mixing chamber. it'll be filled with gunk and cleaning will improve gas mileage.
