There is a rubber gasket on these plugs. if it is leaking, replace it with an original one from the dealer, the aftermarket ones do not tend to seal very well. a new plug and gasket should be available in the AC delco brand at most parts stores, come as a complete kit, and are only a couple dollars.

Bmw 318I oil leak could it be the rear motor seal


Yes. It's called the "rear main" (crank) seal. To repalce it requires the temporary removal of the transmsission. It could also be from leaky valve cover gaskets, a front main (crank) seal or from a number of other sources. Even a leaky oil drain plug seal.

Differential gasket


Rear cover gasket is easy. Unbolt, drain, clean and replace gasket; fill with proper gear oil. Pinion seal on the front of the differential, different matter. If its the pinion seal leaking, take it to a shop with experienced techs.

How to fix a front leaky oil seal in a 1995 Toyota Camry LE


Three seals to check. easiest is the valve cover seal. Number and remove the 4 wires going into your spark plugs. remove 4 nuts holding the cover and replace seal.
Next easiest is the distributor O-ring. Remove air filter assembly remove the distributor cap, then the distributor. With the valve cover still off, loosen the 2 bolts that clamp the distributor down. Remove the 2 terminal leads going into the distributor (4 wire terminal/2 wire terminal) Mark the case of the distributor and the case of the head with one line so you can line it back up on reinstallation. remove the 3 bolts holding the distributor down. Replace O-ring. replace distributor, align, tighten the 2 bolts, then tighten the 3 bolts. replace terminal wiring and cap. replace air filter assembly. Replace valve cover with new gasket. Place spark plug wires back into their proper places. The last one is the oil pan gasket. Drain all oil and remove all blots holding the pan. drop the pan and replace the gasket. Put it all back into place. Do not over tighten the pan bolts as this will cause the gasket to deform, making it leak again.

Both are lean indicators. You probably have a vacuum leak from either bad injector o-rings, or leaky intake gasket, or a cracked vacuum line.

2001 Oldsmobile Alero 2.4l engine, 244400 miles - radiator is leaking at drain plug. This happened after I drained the rad. for replacement. of hoses. Can the plug be replaced without putting in a new...


you can try removing the plug and seeing if it is a gasket or an o-ring that seals it to the radiator. You should be able to find an o-ring or a gasket that will work at your local parts store. If replacing the o-ring or gasket does not work than the radiator will need to be replaced. We no longer drain radiators with the petcock for this reason.

Does head gasket make car over heat and does the blown headgasket seal will fix problem


head gasket problems can cause leakage of antifreeze into the exhaust through the cylinders and low antifreeze levels can cause an overheat problem due to a leaky head gasket.

A leaky water pump can do the same thing except you'll see a puddle of antifreeze from the o-ring not sealing right.

Blown head gasket seal can help with minor defects in the head gasket seal but not major leaks.

It may be worth the cost to try a head gasket seal solution before replacing the head gasket which is a major procedure.
