You'll have to go through all the procedure of changing out your alternator rotor. Then, instead of installing a new stator, you can put that black RTV around the plug that goes in the case and reinsert it into the case. This usually works if the stator is in good shape but I must caution you that if your 2000 model RK has the original stator, the insulation on the wires is probably brittle and will crack when you start messing with it. You might just want to wait until it goes bad or the oil leak gets to bad to live with to mess with it. You'll probably wind up putting a new stator in. Put an OEM stator back in, you'll be better off.

Good Luck

How can i use stop leak for front seal leak on a 1990 volvo240

It is a simple task..The best advice I can give you is ..DONT get a cheap kind...All auto parts stores should sale this...It works good if you get the best kind that is highly rated with good reviews...All you have to do is pour it in the engine oil fill ...I strongly recommend with safety glasses clean engine completely to remove all oil from leak area while cold....Let it dry then use the sealing substance...BE SURE and follow the directions on the bottle...Also you may want to change your oil and put a thicker oil in it to help stop flow of leak...If it has a lot of miles I recommend 20/50 synthetic...Or if you have recently changed you DONT want to overfill it..Most stop leak instructions will tell you to add to engine when it is 1qt. Low.....I have had luck with sealant in the past..It will either stop it or slow it down.."

Oil leak about the size of a quarter on ground -

Check around your rocker cobver and around the engine for oil leaking down over. it is possible that its just oil sat in the catch tray under the car leaking now and then. I would expect after 2-3 weeks though that all this would be gone.

I always pressure wash the oil leaked area and then when it starts again you have a better idea where it came from.

Large oil leak from front of engine

Usually leaks at the front or back of the engine are from the oil pan. Sometimes you can slow the leak, or possibly stop it, by tightening the small bolts around the perimeter of the oil pan. These are probably 7/16 or 1/2 inch bolts. You didn't go into much detail about what kind of leak you have, so I am assuming it is a very thin puddle of engine oil. If it is automatic transmission oil your car will stop moving eventually.

Oil leak in my 92 jeep cherokee

The most likely place for an engine to start leaking oil (when it's coming from the top and not the bottom) is around the valve covers -- the gasket goes bad. Next most likely is camshaft seals.

Sometimes just tightening the valve cover botls will stop it or at least reduce it.
