    This oily film is from my sons work clothes..He has a very greasy job in a factory. Thanks for trying anyway...

  • krusiensk186 Feb 17, 2009

    Thanks, I'll try that..I was just worried that maybe this oil was also getting into the motor, and I thought there was something I could put in and run the machine on full.. I appreciate your help.

My 04 nissan xterra oil pressure comes on when turning sharp or braking hard. Light only stays on for 1-2 seconds. The oil was black when I bought it recently. Changed and still dark/dirty. Is this...


the engine may be slugged up from lack of maintenance/oil changes, since the oil was black when you purchased the truck. was the light coming on before you changed the oil?? if not, try changing the oil filter for nissan one. if that doesnt do it than you can dump some internal engine cleaner into it if you want, but it may develop external oil leaks. the oil builds up a film after a while inside of you engine. if you wash it off, the engine may start leaking oil. to really diagnose this, you should take oil pressure reading at the oil pressure sending unit. you will ofcourse need some specialty tools to do this job such as pressure gauge and oil pressure sending unit socket to remove it so you can screw the gauge into it.good luck.

1990 ford bronco 2 2.9 liter its leaking oil between the block and the oil filter bracket


The gasket must have let go you'll to remove the oil filter bracket and replace the gasket. Make sure you get all the old gasket off and clean both surfaces with brake parts cleaner or carburator cleaner, you want the parts clean and dry. If you use gasket sealer to put the new one on, use it sparingly, just a film is pleanty.

Have black oily film appearing thru out the


I have had a similar problem on a Bosch. Don't know where it comes from, except to say the bottom door gasket appeared to be melting for some reason. I replaced it with a new one, and no signs of melting after about 3 months.

I was able to clean the black smudge from various parts of the dishwasher using Berryman's Chemtool, a carburetor cleaner available at the auto parts store. Use in a well ventilated area. Am certain naptha or other cleaner would work as well, but again, use sparingly and with plenty of ventilation. Rubbing alcohol would not cut the stuff.

Let me know what you find.

Sludge build up in the agitator caused by the water softener


I use ammonia and hot, hot water to clean the film or sludge from my washing machine.
Add (2) cups of ammonia, set the washer water temp to hot and fill it to high or large/extra large load. Agitate for (5) minutes and let soak over night.
Skim off any sludge that is floating then allow the washer to run through the rinse cycle. Re-rinse a couple of times to clear the system.
Good luck and let me know.

You could try a little oven cleaner on it. That should take care of the mark. After that, if it did not work, clean off the oven cleaner well and then try a bleach solution.

Maytag Atlantis black oil like residue and can't remove agitator


Hello
Welcome to fixya.
I'm Huuum and happy to assist you,

this is a very common happening and it means
This usually means that a seal is degrading or dissolving.
This washer is a top loader, Right!
I believe it calls for HE ( High Efficient) laundry detergent.
If we use to much of either it will cause this !

This usually happens due to using to much detergent or bleach.
You said, Black oil like residue discharged from washer during use. Stain clothes, almost impossible to remove. Loosened nut on agitator but it will not budge, and am afraid of damage if I try to pry between agitator and bottom of drum.
