Most utility pumps use mineral oil, but more importantly how did it run out? If a seal was bad the oil should have been milky. It will overheat without proper oil level.

Oil leaked out of pump and it wont work


....what kind of pump do you have? house pumps dont require oil. IF it really is oil, add some more into a reservoir, although its probably shot by now. More than likely its electrical parts overheated and melted leaked out. Either way you need to replace it.

How to clean the gravel in your fish tank?


In order to properly clean your aquarium you should follow the next step by step manual.

You should fill half a bucket with dirty fish tank water. Then fill the rest with clean tap water. Then you should mix them together, the new and the dirty water so there will be no injure to the fish by drastically changing the water.

Place your fish in the bucket.

Unplug the aquarium and the aquarium equipment from the electricity.

Drain the tank completely.

Take two cupful of dirty gravel and put it aside. Since cleaning gravel with tap water will destroy most of the waste eating bacteria, it is necessary to save some gravel with bacteria for later on.

Take the rest of the gravel and put it into two buckets.

Place a garden hose into one bucket and turn the faucet on full blast. Frequently rinse and stir the gravel until the water in the bucket gets clean.

Repeat the process with the second bucket.

Clean the aquarium tank with hot tap water without using any soap or cleaning materials. Clean the internal parts of the aquarium and then wipe the insides with a paper towel.

Put all the gravel back inside the tank in addition with the rest of the dirty gravel.

Refill the tank with clean cold tap water. Make sure you add a de-chlorinating agent to the tap water.

Plug in all the electrical parts.

Return all the fish to the tank.

Pump wont run


Clean an iron:

  1. Unplug the iron and make sure it is cool before cleaning.
  2. Use a toothpick or pipe cleaner to remove buildup in the steam vents, making sure the debris doesn't fall into the vents.
  3. Use a fine sewing needle to carefully clean the spray nozzle of mineral deposits.
  4. To flush sediment from a steam iron, pour 1/2 cup water and 1/2 cup vinegar into the water tank. Place the iron on a rack over a broiling pan and set the iron to steam until the tank runs dry. Repeat if necessary. Or follow the instructions for using a commercial iron cleaner.

Service the steam and spray mechanism:

  1. Unplug the iron.
  2. Use a fine sewing needle to unclog the steam valve assembly. Also, check the valve spring and replace it if it is broken or has lost tension.
  3. If the spray pump is accessible, remove it and check for leaks by placing the spray tube in water and squirting the pump. Clean or replace as needed.
  4. God bless you

How do you replace the fuel pump in a 91 chrysler lebaron?


This is if you have a carbuerator:

Identification of the mechanical fuel pump inlet and outlet tubes


  1. Make sure the negative battery cable is disconnected. Have a metal cup handy to collect any fuel that may spill.
  2. Place a drain pan under the oil filter, then remove the filter with a strap wrench or equivalent.
  3. Disconnect the fuel and vapor lines, catching fuel that spills. Dispose of any spilled fuel safely.
  4. Plug the fuel lines to prevent leaks.
  5. Remove the attaching bolts and remove the fuel pump.
The fuel pump is NOT repairable. It must be replaced as a complete unit. Always use a new gasket when installing the pump and make certain that the gasket surfaces are clean.
To install:
  1. Clean the fuel pump and engine block gasket surfaces of all old gasket material or dirt.
  2. Position a new fuel pump gasket against the engine block, then situate the pump in position over the gasket with bolt holes lined up squarely. Install the retaining bolts and tighten them to 21 ft. lbs. (28 Nm).
  3. Connect the fuel lines to the pump (always start fuel line connections by hand-before using a wrench to tighten) and tighten the fittings to 175 inch lbs. (20 Nm).
  4. Clean the block surface, check the gasket, then install the oil filter, tightening it by hand only. If the gasket is damaged, replace the filter. Refer to Section 1 for the proper service procedures regarding oil filters.
  5. Start the engine and check for leaks. Check the crankcase oil level and refill as necessary.

Submersible utility pump needs oil,what kind should I use in it.


What looks like 'oil' coming out of your pump is actually water! It has leaked and is fully contaminated. The seal for the pump must have leaked and it filled up. Take the 'big screw' back out and drain it and let it dry for a couple days. Then use some silicone as a gasket and put it back together. You may run again! It will probably fail sooner rather than later with a bad bearings from the water damage. That's what gave it the oily appearance.

Flipped Kenmore over to replace pump now oil leaked out, where?


did you tip the washer all the way over? bad idea if you did. is the washer functioning ok? if so don't worry about it. but no....you cannot put the oil back in. It might be ok as long as it does not leak any more oil. This oil is comeing from your transmission. which controls your agetation and spin.
