Sounds like you will have to remove the cover and re-seal it. Use Permatex anaerobic sealer.

I have a 18hp b&s vanguard engine, the mower sat up all winter and I'm now ready to use it but it's completely dry of oil, all of it has leaked out , can you tell me why??

Briggs and Stratton engines have a quite common problem with the bolts coming loose over time where the two halves of the engine meet. Most times tightening the bolts will solve the problem, sometimes the motor has to be disassembled and a new gasket installed. This *may* be where your oil went? It would either be that or the bottom seal around the crankshaft. I would add some oil and see if you could see where its leaking at, but if I had to guess, it would be one of those two places.

Oil leak from the oil pan-citigolf

It could be leaking through the bolts themselves, try taking each one out individually and puttin thread-lock on them. I would use the red color (for the best result,it comes in three diff. colors --purple-light, blue-med., red-heavy) retork to spec,then go to the next bolt, continue till there all done , wipe area, drive it for about half hour, check for leaks rewipe the area,then drive again and recheck and wipe one last time.

What happened if one of my head gasket bolts break off?

your head gasket may leak and allow coolant into the the cylinder, "not good", or it could leak and allow coolant out into the motor compartment, still "not good", or compression may suffer from still another leak due to the Head Gasket not sealing as it should due to the bolt no longer holding torque on the head as it is supposed to. You could have oil leaking into the coolant, coolant leaking in to the oil nothing good can come of it, so the best thing to do is have it fixed, Usually this is done by drilling a hole into the bolt and using a "easy out" to take the old bolt out and replace it with a new one torqued to the proper specs, then I would have a compression test done on the cylinders, to make sure they are holding as they should.

The car will start but will not shift into gear. The brakes have been giving us problems before this happened & the radiator has l leak. My husband simoly wants to "junk" it. I want to...

check that the brake lights are working.
there is normally a safety system where the brakes must be pressed before you can shift out of neutral.
this is normally done from the brake light switch. if the brake light switch does not work then the car will not shift out of neutral.
check the brake light fuse first, then replace the switch if the fuses are ok. the switch is usually quite cheap and will either be a pressure switch fitted to the brake pipe, or more likely a switch connected to to the brake pedal itself, either just behind connected with a rod, or just above the pedal.
there are products to stop minor cooling system leaks. RADWELD or BARRS STOP LEAK are two readily available here. you just add them to the coolong system.
a larger leak or a hole in the radiator would mean replacing or a re-core on the radiator. both are cheaper than replacing the car.
please fell free to ask for more advice if you need

Oil leak in punto

The punto's suffer from porous sumps. The metal becomes thin and leaks oil. Although its not a difficult job to change, its a messy job. You have to draain all the oil out first, then remove all the bolts around the sump pan. If you are replacing the sump, its good practice to replace the gasket too.
The sump itself is not too expensive to purchase, and the job itself in a garage, shouldnt take any more than 2 hours.
