Can a broke gasket around the timeing chain cause the car to smoke

yes because there are seals there for the oil and if it is leaking and the engine is hot, it will create smoke.

Leather strip came off dryer. Now seeing shiny fibers on clothes. I'm wondering what the fibers are and if they are dangerous. Dryer is a kenmore from the 80s or90s


The fibers are felt and theirself are not dangerous...however they were secured to that leather strap that came off and that leather strap and the felt fibers comprise the rear drum seal and now their is a gap in the drum because that felt seal has come off...with that felt seal off their is a great possibility of clothing falling through the gap and damaging the components of the dryer (and ruining your clothing) is highly reccomended that the felt seal is replaced on the dryer drum.

I was told I have to replace the crankshaft seal and oil pan gasket on my 2000 chevy malibu and will cost approx. $380.00. Also is the rear main seal the same thing as the crankshaft seal??? Thanks!

Well sometimes.... the front crankshaft seal is usually called a crank seal, or the front timing cover seal but the rear crank seal is (usually) called the Rear Main crank seal. In order to replace the rear seal , the transmission will need to be removed. If its the front, then the harmonic balancer will be removed. $380 sounds cheap. As you will need a oil seal, oil pan gasket, oil, filter, labor and tax. Maybe even a lower engine mount.

Need to change rear seals in axcles how to? 98 gmc jimmy

First i would check to see if the axle air vent was clear if its not the oil is vary heavy and expands a lot this will build up pressure inside the houseing and cause the axle seals to leak if you can clear it the problem may fix it self its 80 90 weight oil thats thick stuff. If not you need to remove the rear wheels and brake drums then you have to remove the cover from the rear carriar catch the oil. Look inside the carriar houseing you will see the ends of the axles theres a small clip on each axle called a c clip remove them you can pull them out with your fingers. Then you can slide the axles out past the brake plates pry the seals out you might as well replace the bearings when your doing but thats up to you. Lube and install the bearings then the new seals you will need new seals lube the seal lips and vary carefuly slide the axle in taking care not to damage the seal install the c clip do the other side put a new gasket on the rear carriar tighten bolts to 20 ft lbs. Refill carriar 80 90 weight oil through filler plug on the side of the houseing until it just starts to run out hole put the plug in the rear drums on and wheels

In my LML Vespa Select II 1996 model, the oil from the engine leaks to the break drum, through the region where the bearing is located. i have changed the oil seal a number of times, but the oil still...

Hi, Richtarzan the seal is not the issue if you are confident that's where the oil is coming from then you have a venting issue or the shaft the seal is riding on is faulty and needs to be replaced.
Good luck and have a wonderful day.

Model 708 has a high speed bearing noise during rinse cycle Can bearings be replaced?

Hello,Here is how to tell if it is the rear bearing. Open the door, grab the inner drum and see if you can move it while not moving the outer tub. If you can, then the rear bearing is bad. Fridgidaire doesn't sell the rear bearing by itself, they sell the rear outer tub shell, also when this happens the shaft on the inner drum is worn and has to be replaced. I have seen this repair cost as much as 600 dollars USF to do this repair. What causes this is using too much or high sudsing detergent. The rear seal is a water seal, however suds will wick pass the seal like a light grade oil. Also water will not remove the grease from the rear bearings, however detergent is designed to do just that. You may try calling Fridgidaire and see if they will at least provide the parts at No Charge.

1993 Ford F-150 drum brake problem

It appears the rear axle shaft seal is leaking. You will need to pull the axle and replace the seal. Then check the rear end for adequate gear oil. The iron filings I am not to sure about. It sounds as if something came loose from the brakes or brake hardware and got chewed up in the drum. You will need to replace the brake shoes and maybe the brake hardware kit. Always change the shoes or pads on both sides when working on brakes, rear or front. If the inside of the drum is not perfectly smooth it will need to be turned or replaced. If this were brake fluid leaking from the wheel cylinder the master cylinder would be low on fluid and your brake pedal would go down much further than normal.

Black stains sticking to white clothes on washing

If your clothes get marked or torn in your dryer, check these:

Rear seal
Front glides
Front seal
Rollers Your dryer may use rollers, or wheels, to support the rear of the clothes drum. When these are worn out, they may cause the clothes drum to drop down slightly, which can pinch the clothes between the top of the clothes drum and the rear of the dryer interior. When the rollers wear out, you need to replace the whole set.

Rear seal Your dryer may have a felt-like seal at the rear of the drum. If this seal is worn, torn, or missing, clothes can get caught and torn in the space between the clothes drum and the rear of the dryer interior. When the rear seal wears out, you need to replace it.

Front glides Your dryer probably uses nylon or plastic glides at the front of the clothes drum for support. When these are worn out, they may cause the clothes drum to drop down slightly, which can pinch the clothes between the top of the clothes drum and the front of the dryer interior. When the glides wear out, you need to replace them as a set.

Front seal Many dryers have a felt-like seal at the front of the drum. If this seal is worn, torn, or missing, the clothes in the dryer may get caught and torn in the space between the clothes drum and the front of the dryer interior. When the seal wears out, you need to replace it.

We have the same machine. The drum also broke so we had it professionally installed. It wasn't done well enough and after the 90 day repair warranty, other problems developed. We still don't have a dryer and the next repair is $500 as other parts were damaged and we didn't catch it within the 90 days.
Bottom line: do have it professionally installed but be sure to ask about their work guarantee. As soon as you have any problem at all, call them back.

The squeaking is usually attributed to any (or all) of the following:

The drum support rollers
The rear drum seal
The front drum ring bearing
The front drum seal and bearing assembly
The Idler Pulley

Now before you throw yours hands in the air in a panic, these parts sound more technical than they are. All the bearings and seals for the drum are either felt or plastic, the drum rollers support the drum at the rear bulkhead, and the idler pulley is what the drive belt rides on. offers excellent illustrations to show you where these parts are located. Just type in your complete model number and there will be a part listing with part numbers on the next page. If the model number you posted this under is correct the parts can be found under the following headings:

"Bulkhead Parts"
Drum Support Rollers (item 44) Part #349241T (pkg. of two)
Rear Drum Seal (item 66) Part #279857
Front Drum Ring Bearing (item 62) Part #279441

"Cabinet Parts"
Drum Seal and Bearing Assy. (item 38) Part #3406129
Idler Pulley (item 53) Part #691366

I list all these parts as a convenience in case you need to order any of them, and to help illustrate where these parts are located. You may not need ANY of them.

The drum support rollers require lubrication at the point where the roller meets the shaft with a light turbine oil. This should be done periodically to keep them rolling smooth. DO NOT get any oil on the rubber rollers or it may cause the drum to slip. You should also remove any build of lint before lubricating.

The drum seals can become brittle with age and start making noise as the drum rotates. This is particularly true with the rear drum seal. It will become discolored with age and turn brown in many cases. Inspect the front and rear seals of the drum for excessive wear. If parts of the seal begin to protrude into the interior part of the drum, this is a good sign that the seal is bad. The seals cannot be lubricated and will require replacement.

The idler pulley is a small plastic wheel on a shaft that the drive belt rides on. Lubricating the idler pulley wheel in the same manner as the drum roller supports is also required from time to time. DO NOT get any oil on the drive belt.

I know this seems like a lot, but a simple matter of cleaning and lubricating may be all that you need. If you require further assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
