I have a 2002 hyunda sante fe 2.7ltr auto and the seal between the auto and the transfer case is leaking. I know its the transfer case becaust the oil is thick. Any help would be appreciated

Good Day Sir. I recommend to thoroughly check your TC and A/T system of where the oil is really from and if u know how to do it, its kind of hard making the system drop. I guess the parts u need to replace are only the oil seal and gasket.
Hope it help.
God Bless.

3.1l diesel. What is the correct head gasket?

no year? Jeep? one post, and no year.
is this WG jeep say in europe. ? we dont have WG here.
WG started in Europe in 1999.
on this usa forum or in our country no 3.1 VM diesels
i do have your FSM book.
and here is what it states. (different liners used etc)
A one piece steel cylinder head gasket is used for
all five cylinder heads.
Cylinder head gaskets are available in three thicknesses.
Identification holes or notches in the right
front corner of the gasket indicate the thickness of
the gasket (Fig. 65).
CAUTION: Piston protrusion must be measured, to
determine cylinder head gasket thickness, if one or
more cylinder wall liners have been replaced.
NOTE: If cylinder wall liners have not been
removed; the same thickness head gasket removed,
may be used.
(1) Use special tool VM.1010 with dial indicator
special tool VM.1013 (Fig. 66).
(2) Bring the piston of cylinder no. 1 exactly to top
dead center.
(3) Zero the dial indicator on the cylinder block
mating surface.
(4) Setup the dial indicator on the piston crown
(above the center of the piston pin) 5mm (1/8 in.)
from the edge of the piston and note the measurement
(Fig. 67).
(5) Repeat the procedure with the rest of the cylinders.
(6) Establish the thickness of the steel gasket for
all four cylinder heads on the basis of the greatest
piston protrusion (Fig. 65)
buy the book,end all guessing?

Remove the timing case, clean with high flash point solvent, apply 4mm thick RTV-Grey to the mating surface of timing case and install it back. Wait two hours and then pour engine oil in the engine.

Water in oil

A 2007 with water in oil..? Wow.. Are you running it for 5 to 20 mins then shutting off? This type of short run time can result in a lot of condensation in the crank case.. This will give you the tell tale foam around filler cap. You will need to run the engine long enough to get good and hot .. say at least an hour, couple times a week, to boil out the condensation.
IF that is NOT the case, then it's likely the head gasket is failed, and coolant is entering the crank case. Or possibly another seal of similar importance. Thick white exhaust is a very strong indicator of blown head gasket.

99 gmc suburban's oil is light brown, had no coolant

Well if the coolant escaped and there are no external leaks, something happened to the cooling system to let it into the engine oil.
Either a head gasket, intake gasket, or some other engine failure.
I would probably notify the shop that did the trans service just in case it was something they did.

Air coming out of the head

I saw your other post, about the manual. Your compressor is very simple to work on but parts take some time to order. If you only need reed valves or gaskets I would try making them. Reed valves can be made using feeler gauge material (or old feeler gauge, can be slightly thinner or thicker) and cut /sand or grind to size. Gaskets can be made using automotive gasket material (try to use same thickness) and or then metal like shim material or aluminum from soda can. Use the old gasket as pattern. The gaskets used where reed valves are need to be similar material /thickness but not that critical. Just leave enough room for them to open and close, but not too much room for them to flop around. Good luck

Have a 580 ck they use to make head gaskets of different thickness. I have rebuilt the motor new sleeves, pistons etc. but there seems to be a problem with the rear sleeve the head gasket keeps failing ...

pull the sleeves and use the correct shim thickness to get the sleeve height correct
here will be a height above block face measurement that has to be correct or there will not be enough pressure on the sleeves to hold them secure in the block

Where can I find a gasket for Sunbeam 2774 blender???

If you cannot find one, well in the "Old" days we used to make gaskets out of Thick Brown Paper Bags. Using the OLD gasket as a template simply trace around it & cut it out. Lightly Oil it and use it as normal. Usually works great, sometimes you need two, to get the thickness.
