The harmonic balance most likely has a groove cut in it from the old seal,you can get a sleeve to go over the harmonic balance,it gives the seal a new surface to ride on,therefore like new.NAPA auto parts can get it for you.

I have a 2002 bmw x5.failed deq.error codes p0505(idle control system malfunction)and p0365(camshaft position sensor "B" circuit bank 1) I need to know what the actual problem is concerning these 2...

The 505 is likely the result of the 365. The camshaft position sensor is needed to help determine what idle should be. Most likely the sensor is worn out (oil gets past the seal inside and shorts out the electrical components) and needs to be replaced. Clear codes after replacement before driving.

I have a nissan 1400 champ and is leaking oil on the front part of the manual 5 speed gearbox and the rear part of the gearbox. I have replaced the crankshaft oil seal but i still have oil leaking on

There are seals on the front and rear of the transmission. If the clutch wasn't covered in engine oil, then replacing the crankshaft seal wasn't necessary. Reseal the transmission.

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.

I would like to have a diagram of the timing comfiguration of a 2002 dodge intrepid 2.7 .....i am very interested in the timining marks for the camshafts

Hi, this engine uses plated links in the chain to match marks on the gears. See figure and installation procedure below. Let me know if you have any questions and thanks for using FixYa.

    1. Install the timing chain by performing the following procedure:
    1. Verify that the crankshaft sprocket timing mark is aligned with the mark on the oil pump housing.
    2. Place the left side primary timing chain sprocket onto the chain, while aligning the timing mark on the sprocket to the 2 plated links on the chain.
    3. Lower the chain with the left sprocket through the left cylinder head opening.
    4. Loosely position the left camshaft sprocket over the camshaft hub.
    5. Align the plated link to the crankshaft sprocket timing mark.
    6. Position the timing chain around the water pump drive sprocket.
    7. Align the right camshaft sprocket timing mark to the plated link on the timing chain and loosely position the sprocket over the camshaft hub.
    8. Verify that all the plated links are aligned to their proper timing marks.
    1. Install the left lower timing chain guide and tensioner. Torque the bolts to 21 ft. lbs. (28 Nm).
      NOTE Inspect the timing chain guide access plug O-rings before installing. Replace damaged O-rings as necessary.
    2. Install the timing chain guide access plug to the left cylinder head and torque to 15 ft. lbs. (20 Nm).
      NOTE To reset the timing chain tensioner, oil will first need to be purged from the tensioner.
    1. Purge oil from the timing chain tensioner using the following procedure:
    1. Remove the tensioner from the tensioner housing.
    2. Place the check ball end of the tensioner into the shallow end of the Tensioner Resetting Special tool 8186.
    3. Using hand pressure, slowly depress the tensioner until oil is purged from the cylinder.
    4. Reinstall the tensioner into the tensioner housing.
    1. Reset the timing chain tensioner using the following procedure:
    1. Position the cylinder plunger into the deeper side of the Tensioner Resetting special tool 8186. Apply a downward force until the tensioner is reset.


    Ensure that the tensioner is properly reset. The tensioner body must be bottomed against the top edge of the Tensioner Resetting Special tool 8186. Failure to properly perform the resetting procedure may cause tensioner jamming.

    1. Install the chain tensioner into the right cylinder head.
    2. At the right cylinder head, insert a 3 / 8 in. square drive extension with a breaker bar into the intake camshaft drive hub. Rotate the camshaft until the camshaft hub aligns with the camshaft sprocket and damper attaching holes. Install the sprocket attaching bolts and torque to 21 ft. lbs. (28 Nm).
    3. Turn the left camshaft by inserting a 3 / 8 in. square drive extension with a breaker bar into the intake camshaft drive hub. Rotate the camshaft until the camshaft hub aligns with the camshaft sprocket and damper attaching holes. Install the sprocket attaching bolts and torque to 21 ft. lbs. (28 Nm).
    4. If necessary, rotate the engine slightly clockwise to remove any slack in the timing chain.
    5. To arm the timing chain tensioner: Use a flat-bladed prytool to gently pry the tensioner arm towards the tensioner slightly. Then, release the tensioner arm. Verify the tensioner extends.
    6. Inspect and replace the timing chain cover gasket and oil seal.
    7. Apply a 1 / 8 in. (3mm) bead of sealer at the parting line of the oil pan and engine block.
      NOTE When installing the timing cover, guide the seal over the crankshaft to prevent damage to the seal-s lip.
    Install or connect the following:

    Timing cover and gasket and torque the M10 bolts to 40 ft. lbs. (54 Nm) and the M6 bolts to 105 inch lbs. (12 Nm)

    Accessory drive belt tensioner pulley

    Power steering pump

    Crankshaft damper

    Crankshaft center bolt and torque the bolt to 125 ft. lbs. (170 Nm) using tool 8191

    Accessory drive belts

    Fan module and electrical wiring harness

    Upper radiator crossmember

    Negative battery cable

    How to replace the water pump on a 1992 geo tracker 1.6 liter engine

    During these procedures, identify all components removed from the engine so that they may be reinstalled in their original positions. If discarding the old components so that new components can be installed, identifying the old items is not necessary.

    1.3L and 1.6L Engines

    1. Remove the timing belt cover, timing belt, tensioner, plate and spring.
    2. Remove the water pump mounting bolts.
    3. Remove the one (1.6L MFI engines) or two (1.3L and 1.6L TFI engines) small rubber seals from between the water pump and the oil pump, and the water pump and the cylinder head.
    4. If necessary for clearance, remove the oil level dipstick tube retaining bolt from the engine block and the alternator adjusting brace.

    Fig. 1: Exploded view of the water pump mounting

    WARNING Do NOT use a prybar between the water pump housing and the engine block to separate the two components; this can cause scratches and/or gouges, which can prevent proper sealing.
    1. Pull the water pump off of the engine block. If the water pump is difficult to remove from the engine block, use a soft-faced mallet to tap the water pump housing until it loosens.
    Do not disassemble the water pump; if the water pump is damaged or defective, the entire unit is replaced.
    1. Thoroughly clean the water pump gasket mating surfaces of old gasket material and corrosion.
    To install:
    1. Along with a new gasket, install the water pump on the engine block. Tighten the water pump mounting bolts to 88-115 inch lbs. (10-13 Nm).
    2. On 1.3L and TFI 1.6L engines, install two new rubber seals: one between the water pump and oil pump, and the other between the water pump and the cylinder head. The MFI 1.6L engines only use one rubber seal, located between the water and oil pumps.
    1. If removed, install the alternator adjusting brace and the oil level dipstick retaining bolt.
    2. Install the timing belt, tensioner, plate, spring and cover.

    Hope helps (remember comment and rated this).

    I am replacing the seal on the rear penion i need touqe specs on the nut


    CAUTION: Following procedure must be used to retain proper pinion bearing preload. Failure to follow procedure may result in premature axle assembly or component failure. Ensure pinion bearing preload is checked before disassembly, as previous pinion bearing preload will be used during reassembly.


    1. Raise and support vehicle. Scribe reference mark on drive shaft-to-pinion flange on differential for reassembly reference. Remove bolts and "U" joint straps at pinion flange on differential.
    Disconnect drive shaft from differential.
    2. Remove rear wheels and brake drums to prevent any drag that may affect pinion bearing preload reading. Using INCH-lb. torque wrench, measure amount of force required to rotate pinion. This is pinion bearing preload. Record pinion bearing preload for reassembly reference.
    3. Using Holder (6719), hold pinion flange. Remove pinion nut and washer. Scribe reference mark on pinion flange-to-pinion for reassembly reference. Using appropriate puller, remove pinion flange from pinion. Remove oil seal from axle housing.


    1. Ensure oil seal surface in axle housing is clean. Coat lip of oil seal with gear lube. Install oil seal using appropriate seal installer. Drive oil seal into axle housing until oil seal installer contacts axle housing.
    2. Install pinion flange on pinion with reference mark aligned. Using appropriate pinion flange installer, install pinion flange on pinion.

    CAUTION: Washer must be installed on pinion with convex side of washer facing outward (away from pinion).

    3. Install washer on pinion with convex side of washer facing outward (away from pinion). Install NEW pinion nut. Tighten pinion nut to 210 ft. lbs. (285 N.m). Rotate pinion several times to seat pinion bearings.

    CAUTION: DO NOT overtighten or loosen then retighten pinion nut when adjusting pinion bearing preload. If pinion nut is overtightened, collapsible spacer on pinion must be replaced.

    4. Rotate pinion using INCH-lb. torque wrench. Rotating torque should be equal to reading recorded in removal step 2) , plus 5 INCH lbs. (.056 N.m). If rotating torque is low, tighten pinion nut in small increments until proper rotating torque is obtained.
    5. To install remaining components, reverse removal procedure using NEW "U" joint straps and bolts. Ensure all reference marks are aligned. Tighten bolts to specification. Check lubricant level and add if necessary.

    1999 cross country v70 awd crankshaft seal replacement

    Your info is confusing. The rear cam seal is not inside the timing belt cover, and the crank seal is at the bottom of the engine, while the cam seal is at the top.

    Is there oil at the top, around the cam seal? Or just at the bottom? It's common for the oil pump seal to leak. If you get the oil pump reseal kit, it contains the oil pump seal and gasket, as well as the crankshaft seal. Make sure you seal the oil pump bolts, Volvo has special copper washers for this purpose.

    Just try to locate the oil leak before replacing any more parts. Sometimes it can be something simple like the oil cap seal or the oil trap housing.

    Oil leak on the rotor timing out put shaft

    If you mean the camshaft seal, yes, you would need to pull the timing belt and sprocket off, and if you are anywhere near the service interval for the belt, replace it and the water pump (unless the water pump is very easy to service, and the tensioner.  
    You will probably need a (gear/sprocket) puller to get the sprocket off and a another type of (seal) puller to get the seal out.  You could probably extract the old seal with a screwdriver, but it's not recommended.  Get a Haynes manual (around $20) before you even contemplate doing this youself. If you haven't done this before, are mechanically inclined. and have all the tools, you will spend about 1/2 a day to do either the cam seal by itself, or the seal, timing belt, tensioner and water pump.  Once you have it all apart, the last three components will only add an hour to the job, and you won't be stranded when the timing belt breaks.
    good luck ..ajm
