Help asap by a diesel mechanic

If the crossover pipe between tanks runs up the crossmember above fuel level, it needs to be full of fuel to syphon into the other tank, if it has air in the pipe it won't syphon... Pressurise the full tank with compressed air to force fuel into pipe and other tank. it should work correctly unless there is an air leak/ blockage/tap tuned off on the crossover pipe....

Mazda B2500TD 97model l have problem with oil

You have excessive engine breathing/pressure. When you did the overhaul did you replace the rings etc and deglaze the bores because excessive crankcase pressure is your problem and its forcing the oil down the breather pipe. Poor valve guide stem seals is another area.

overall the engine does not mean the problem is solved ! sorry. the oil coming out the breather means the engine is not breathing properly. if the arrangement of the rings on the piston is not correct , the engine will have a blow-by... causing sump compression... and push oil through the breather. also sludge blocking passages ie. the tappet cover, will also cause a problem.

Mechanic has told me that engine is not breathing properly. I need to clean all necessary breathers, pipes vents etc. Is this something i can attempt myself?

Make sure you use a Mass Air Flow Sensor cleaner made by CRC.Do not use( GUMOUT CLEANERS) it not good on your rubber seals.Also wait until your fuel tank is low then add some fuel injector cleaner. You can do this yourself no problem.Also next time when you fuel up try useing high test fuel that will help clean you engine also. Hope this helps

Have a 1988 chevrolet clubcab 3/4 ton k2500 that will not Idle down when started

Sounds like either the throttle cable or linkage is sticking or there is a vacuum pipe that is split or disconnected, check all of the air hoses and vacuum pipes, check the throttle mechanism and cable or linkage to see if its sticking and free it off if it is. Hope that helps

Bmw e46 318i , engine has high pitch noise after about 30 40 min driving like a screetching noise ,i had a split hose at the back behind the spaceship thingy , and i replaced the double pipes with bmw...

rubber pipe , its at the back under the pollen filter , comes as a double pipe one fat one thin , fat one is for air flow , thin one water , both for cooling the engine. The fat one was actually split , causing my engine to idle bad , so i replaced the part , engine idle is fine but now i gt that noise , and i get air suction when i take oil dipstick out while engine is running , so i am guessing something is not right but dk what
