Power steering is a cycling system all you need to do is fill it and run the car

How do i fix honda prelude 92 sports transmission fluid leaking in to radiator have put in new radiator and still leaking in?


transmission oil gets into the cooling system by a crack in the cooling coil in the radiator tank.When you say new radiator and it is still leaking oil into the radiator then either the radiator is second hand new or the transmission oil pressure is too high. have a transmission pressure checked before you fit an off the shelf still in the original wrapping new radiator. If the radiator is in good condition and not partially blocked it is possible to replace the tank that has the cooling coil in it. It is essential to properly flush out the engine using the correct detergents ensuring that all the systems are opened.. The next option is an air to air cooler for the transmission which is better than the radiator cooler idea.Costs about the same as a brand new radiator.

Where is the oil cooler located? Does it have a water jacket?


if you are referring to the oil cooler for an automatic transmission, then it will mostly be in the radiator bottom/side tank and uses coolant to cool the oil. They have a habit of cracking/leaking and putting red oil in the radiator or allowing coolant into the transmission. The fix for this is costly flushing of the engine system and transmission and a new radiator. I would consider an air cooled oil cooler as they are more efficient and not prone to coolant problems.. They are generally cheaper than a radiator as the inlet/out let pipes can be blocked off

My brake pedal goes all the way to the floor there is no any brake oil leak i replace the brake master cylinder i bleed the system but still the same what is the correct procedure to bleed brake system...


fill master cylinder, start at right rear. the way I do it is make sure cap is back on master cylinder. pump the brakes a few times then hold them. have another person open the bleeder valve at the tires until brakes go to floor. hold them down until bleeder is retightened but be sure master cylinder is not out of fluid. then go to left rear and do the same procedure, then right front, then left front. check fluid and if air is all out there should be brakes. good-day ! THIS IS HOW I HAVE ALWAYS DONE IT ! heres a little trick of sorts. you can change a master cylinder, and if you bench bleed it first. and no fluid is lost from the master cylinder lines you do not need to bleed the whole system. but make sure cylinder is full of fluid before putting on vehicle and all air is out of master cylinder.

Having trouble with power steering pump. I think it has to do with the fluid/leak fixer I put in. I have been given some small amount of hope that if I drain the system and put the correct fluid in it I...


Hello, since you have a Limited it probably has an oil cooler at the bottom front of the vehicle. They are usually hung ahead of the radiator.

The oil cooler is a good access point because it is the lowest point of the system. One of your lines will come from your Reservoir and the other will go to the pump. Check the Reservoir line for leaks as the plastic clips hold moisture and corrode the metal portion of the line. These small air leaks will reduce the efficiency of your pump.

Unless Ford makes a product to clean the pump, I would use the correct fluid and let the pump cycle the fluid out 1 quart at a time. Drain the Reservoir first, let the pump side drain out the cooler line, reconnect, add 1 quart, run vehicle, drain Reservoir, drain pump line, repeat. Probably waste 3 quarts of fresh fluid doing this, 1 quart at a time.

Now I understand if noise is the problem, Lube-guard makes about 8 products and the one for Power steering will reduce noise almost immediately. I have heard it work on a 2004 F150. There are also Quick lube places with pumps for Transmission fluid changes. If you want to try their system, I believe they can use adapters and hook you up.

My 97dodge intrepid is leaking oil and i want to know where is the oil pan?


Hi. You might need to Replace the oil pan gasket is the oil is leaking. Here's the procedure on how to Replace the oil pan gasket.

1. Jack up the front end of the car and slide a jack stand under the vehicle. Make sure the jack stand is securely in place, and then put blocks in front of the rear wheels to keep them from rolling.

2. Slide under the car and put a drain pan under the drain plug of the oil pan. Loosen the drain plug with a socket wrench and allow all of the old oil to drain into the pan. Remove the old oil filter.

3. Disconnect the negative battery cable and remove the dipstick and its housing. Remove the collar on the rear of the oil pan. If the vehicle is equipped with engine oil cooler lines that lead to the oil pan, remove them as well, along with transmission oil cooler clips.

4. Remove the bolts holding the oil pan, and carefully remove the oil pan. Remove the old gasket. Scrape it with a putty knife if necessary, but be very careful not to scratch the surface.

5. Wipe out the oil pan with a clean cloth or paper towel, and wipe the joining surface of the oil pan with cleaning fluid or solvent. Apply a thin bead of automotive sealer and install the new gasket.

6. Replace the oil pan, tightening the bolts securely. Replace the transmission oil cooler clips, engine oil cooler lines, oil pan collar, dipstick housing and dipstick, and reconnect the negative battery cable. Install a new oil filter.

7. Take the car off the jack stand and fill the engine with the appropriate amount of SAE 10W-30 or SAE 5W-30.

All the best!

The procedure you are thinking about doing is the correct procedure but you need to know that there is a rubber seal behind the large nut. Best to remove the line, remove the large nut and replace the rubber seal. Overtorquing the nut will crack the plastic radiator tank. Double check BOTH fluid levels and conditions when finished.

Bleeding the clutch line


It sounds like you have air in the system. Either they did not bleed it correctly or you have a leak in the system.
If you paid someone to fix your car, have it towed back to the garage and bled correctly or leak fixed. If a friend installed your parts, find a new friend. Just kidding.
