SOURCE: installing rear brake caliper rebuild kit.

To remove piston safely use the brake pedal to press out piston. You will need to remove the pads so it can do this. You will need a container to catch the fluid when the piston comes out. Clean the the piston with a fine polishing cloth 600 grit or higher so as not to leave scratches, replace piston if it pitted or burred. Clean inside of caliper, remove inside seal with dental type tool. Roll in the new seal, position same as old one. install new outter dust boot if equipped with one. Lubricate seal and leading edge of piston with brake fluid. Slide piston into calipier. You will need to make sure it is started straight and then use a C-clamp to compress the piston all the way in. Never ever use any oils or grease any any internal brake parts because it will cause seal failure. Clean parts are critical, but again , no petroleum products. Good luck

SOURCE: There is oil leaking from

Removing the cover to replace the gasket will not harm any of the electrics. I would try just tightening the case screws to see if that will take care of the problem. Worst case is you get a new gasket. Use an impact driver to remove and/or tighten the screws. The web site below looks like the gasket is in stock. Now would be a good time to replace the shift shaft seal. That could be the oil leak anyway. Please rate my answer. Thanks.

What would leak oil onto the starter


the oil leak could be a bad valve cover gasket needing replacement, a head gasket leaking oil, a leaking intake gasket and oil running down along the engine block and dripping. it could be an oil pressure switch that is leaking. it is near the starter while driving or engine running can spray oil onto the starter. unless the oil leak is very bad and has been leaking a long time onto the starter will not cause it to act like a dead battery even then not likely. have a starter draw test down to check condition of the starter.

Rocker cover gasket must be leaking. Sometimes just tightening the cover bolts will stop it. Otherwise replace the gaskets.

You don't say what engine it has. The 4-cyl was a better than the V6 for oil leaks.

The V6 had oil leaks from

-rear bank cam cover gasket

-distributor o-ring seal

-oil filter bracket o-ring seal

-crankshaft nose oil seal (less common)

-rear main bearing oil seal (expensive, just leave it)

The 4 cyl leaked oil from

-distributor o-ring seal

-camshaft cover gasket

-rear main bearing seal (expensive, leave it)

2004 gmc yukon lite came on low oil pressure just had oil change 5 days ago checked it was low about a qt. Has 157,000 miles what can be the cause


There can be alot of causes, such as valve covers leaking, oil pan gasket leaking, oil filter leaking, rear main seal leaking, front timing chain cover seal or gasket leaking even bad rings. Does it smoke out of the back? Your valve seals could be leaking. Best way to find out if you have a leak is to inspect the valve covers manually, or take newspapers and lay them under the entire engine on the ground, and it will leave the tell tale stain of a leak. Hope this helps.

Oil leaking from under the front of the motor. Have had both manifold gaskets changed, yet still have a leak. Now the starter is full of oil and I have to replace it


the manifold gaskets role in an oil leak? oil under the car i would be thinking about a front or rear crankshaft seal or the oil pan, or the oil pressure sender unit. if there is oil on the sides of the engine i would look to the valve cover gaskets.

2008 kawasaki mean streak uses a quart of oil about every 800 miles. It's has been doing it for a while.


If it is smoking, then your going to need piston rings.

If its leaking the oil, try to located the leak and buy the new gaskets to fix the leak. If its a side cover gasket, or maybe an o-ring on the oil cap or o-ring on the oil filter cover.
Wipe the bike down or wash it down and look for the oil.

Look near the oil filter and see if oil is leaking, i have saw this several times where the oil filter is leaking, and oil blows down the whole underside of the bike.

The only other place the oil can go is in your airbox. Check to see if your engine crankcase breather hose is blowing by way to much oil and soaking your airfilter. If this is the case then you need to change your oil and filter.

Piamary leaking oil vary bad but its tray oil


I assume that your primary is leaking oil and by "tray oil", I think you mean "Grey oil". Oil in the primary that has been in there for about 5000 miles will be gray. It contains clutch debris and metal shavings from the primary chain and sprockets.

Now, the oil is coming from behind the inner primary cover, the inner will have to be pulled off meaning you'll have to take the engine sprocket, clutch assembly, and starter off. To get the starter off, you'll probably have to pull the exhaust system as well. That's a pretty good job.

But, if the oil is simply leaking out from the seam of the inner and outer primary or the derby cover, simply replace the gaskets there. If your outer primary is designed to use an O-ring on the derby cover, use the O-ring and a solid gasket as well. This works well.

Good Luck
