SOURCE: oil leak on 2005 -2006 new model passat

well this is an expensive repair as such because of the time involved,a reputable garage would check the clutch and gearbox spigot shaft as a matter of course but the seal can only be reached by removal of everything ,if its just a small drip then have it done as and when the clutch needs replacing is the best advice i can give,adding a leak sealer for engines could help as it makes the seal soft again but if the end of the crank is worn then no ,but it could work and often does.and its not that expensive if it saves you a lot of work for now.As for mileage well treat it as a guide only as mileage tampering still goes on and you will never know weither its the garage or a previous owner who didnt want to lose money.but make sure you check oil level in gearbox in case its leaking out of spigot shaft seal .engine oil smells like engine oil but gearbox oil stinks trust me ,trying to get it when it drips up your arms ,,,,.Also as a matter of course check the engine breather as evan a slight blockage here will increase back pressure in engine causing it to leak oil .How long to remove ,,well about 3 hrs roughly if all the bolts come undone on the suspension an hour or so to change seal and check over maybe evan pushing seal in or out a bit to miss wear on crank if any,rebuilding with a strong lad to assist in alignment and moving about another 2/3 hours if it all goes well with no complications .

SOURCE: oil leak on right side under top engine cover

your valve cover gasket may have blown. This can happen if you overfill above the required dipstick level. take off the valve cover and check the gasket. Better to be under the level than over. The oil preassure will try to blow from where ever there is a weak gasket.

SOURCE: How d you replace the starter on a 2005 Scion xb?

There are two bolts, one is at the top exactly opposite of the first one you took out. You will not be able to see it, but feel around the head of the starter where it goes into the block and you will feel where it goes.

SOURCE: How do I install alt. belt on 2005 scion xb?

I just looked at my '04 xB. It looks very straight forward.
loosen the bolt that holds the alternator to the bracket.
carefully slide the alt to the bottom. (Also be aware of the plug and wires on the alt.They should never hold the weight of the alternator. You dont want them breaking prematurely.)
Pull the belt off, remove the belt from the crank shaft pulley.

Do the reverse, and you will have replaced the belt.

Make sure to check the belt in about a week or so.
New belts will stretch over time. Make sure you keep the tension tight enough to work correctly, but not so tight that the alernator shaft is warped.
I usually place the new belt on both pulleys and give a good "medium" pull on the alt while tightening. Find the middle of the belt and squeeze them together, depending on the type and length of the belt, there should be about 1/4" of flex on both sides.

2002 tahoe back of motor oil leak, already changed rear main

If you have oil running down the side of the block (from above the oil pan) check the lower edge of the valve cover. Those gaskets often fail to seal when the fasteners eventually work themselves loose

Check the fasteners that secure the valve cover to the heads. Torque to 3 ft lbs.

If the leak persists... replace the gasket.

I have the VSC, Trac off and CEL on in my 2005 Scion XB

Here is the actual description of the code and possible causes.

P0012 SCION Description The Engine Control Module (ECM) controls the Oil Control Valve (OCV) to regulate the intake camshaft angle/timing. As a result of the angle change, the engine timing is advance or ******. Optimizing engine timing will help the engine improve torque and fuel economy, and the exhaust emissions decrease under overall driving conditions. The Variable Valve Timing (VVT) system includes the Oil Control Valve (OCV) and VVT controller. The ECM detects the actual intake valve timing using signals from the camshaft and crankshaft position sensors, and performs feedback control.
- Dirty or low engine oil
- Faulty variable valve timing (VVT)
- Faulty oil control valve (OCV)
- Variable Valve Timing (VVT) harness is open or shorted
- Oil Control Valve (OCV) harness circuit is open or shorted
- Damaged ECM

I have a 2005 scion xb, I have replaced brake pads and master cylinder, I've bled and bled the brakes, but foot petal still goes to floor, have nothing leaking either, help

Hello and welcome to FixYa!

When you open be bleed valve, does the fluid flow solid when brakes are applied? If yes then the problem will be on the hydrovac. You can have a vacuum leak that's why the brake pedal stays on the floor. If the fluid is not solid then you'll need to bleed it out some more. You may need to replace the hydrovac to get your brakes working normally again.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!
