Oh dear !
That sounds serious
Looking at photos of the engine it I cant see any engine protector in forwards of the engine sprocket !!
As the broken end of the chain came around the sprocket it will have whip-lashed forward& hit the crank-cases, probably cracking or tearing a hole in one of the crank-case halves - which can only be bought in pairs.
If that is the case then a replacement engine would be the easiest & cheapest option
BUT If you are very lucky the oil pump cover may have taken the blow and become dis-lodged / cracked hence the leak
Good Luck

How to stop the bar chain oil leak


There should be an adjusting screw around the bar somewhere. Turn it anti clockwise until it stops and then just crack it one turn. If it still leaks too much then turn it down slightly.also try and store the saw on its side to stop the oil just coming out.

Why is my bike leaking oil and from where


Either get the bike up high on a stand, or crawl underneath and look with a torch. Wipe clean with tissues or rags, and then view after a run to see where the leak may be....crankcase gasket, head gasket, or oil thrown from the chain whilst riding....if you over-oil the chain. Whatever, needs work done urgently in case you seize up on a run which will caost a lot more to rectify.

I heard something snap and then noticed that the rear of the car drives very bumpy


Can you provide more info? Did you hit a bump? What do you mean by 'drives bumpy?' Does it ride rough, or does it go up and down a lot after you hit a bump, or something else? Can you further describe the snap you heard, and what was going on when you heard it and immediately afterward (e.g., driving 40 mph on a paved road, hit a pot hole, heard a loud 'breaking' sound as if something snapped/broke, and the ride of the car seemed to immediately change to being more harsh/rough)? Have you had any work done recently, such as tires changed or rotated, struts replaced, wheel alignment, or brakes replaced? Did anything else change (e.g., now when you hit a bump, you hear a new noise in the rear)? Were you carrying anything heavy in the trunk or back seat? I had a '99 Corolla for several years, and had zero problems other than a worn out driver's door handle and a couple of cracked windshields. Great car choice!

How do I adjust the chain tension on 14" chainsaw


There is a bolt on the side of chain bar that releases it. Pushing it toward the motor allows you to loosen it or remove the chain, and pulling it away tightens it. Simply loosen the bolt, pull it tight (not too tight, there should be a little play or you risk wearing the bearings or snapping the chain) then tighten it back up. If you can (carefully) rotate the chain yourself without difficulty. Always make sure you've got enough chain oil.

My 03 kawasaki ninja zx636 will not display a speed reading it happened when my chain came off when i was riding the temp gauge works and the revs show but no speed reading


Hi there,

you'll need to check for the speedometer cable (of its analog.) the cable inside it might be broken. Else, i suppose when your chain snapped, it hit the wires connected to the speedometer. might as well check it out.
Hope this helps,

THERE IS A BAD OIL LEAK COMING FROM SOMEWHERE, YESTERDAY ON THE INTERSTATE WE HEARD A POP LIKE WE HIT A ROCK OR SOMETHING THEN A SIZZLE AND WHEN WE STOPPED ALOT OF SMOKE. WHAT COULD THIS BE?


if you hit a rock, maybe your oil pan.
inspect the car from below.
if you cannot find it, use a degreaser and clean the engine compartment, then, put some powder on the engine and start the engine. the leak should show up.
check your oil level as well, if you drop a lot, you may need more oil to start your car safely.

My chain saw (14 inch gas powered) would not


Modern chainsaws have the ability to run without turning the chain via the chain-brake. To set the brake the uppermost handle is pushed forward (toward the chain) and a firm snap should be heard and felt. To release the brake you pull the same handle back (towards the engine) and get the same "snap".
Concerning oil leakage: Bar/chain lube collects on the inside of the clutch cover and the sawdust mixes with it as you saw. A surprising amount of oil gets absorbed in the sawdust and later seeps back out when the saw is at rest. If the level of oil in the tank noticably drops after sitting overnight you may have a leak...otherwise it's normal.
As for a running chain that wont cut, it is common for chains to be installed backward and the unit still function perfectly (it just won't cut wood). See the proper chain orientation here. In this photo the chain travel is from left to right.

The silcolene does not burn as well as standard two stroke oil. The unburned oil has to go somewhere and out the exhaust is it. Get a new gasket anyway. It should help.

Bar chain oil leaking into case when not in use


if you store it somewhere other than a climate controlled building , the changes in temperature can cause the oil to expand out of the saw a little each time the temp. goes up.

try some absorbent cloth

Timing chain cover cracked


I never heard of a cover cracking, unless the timing chain or belt snapped. And I've worked on cars for 40 years. 10 to 1 it happened at the shop,but it can't be proved.
