It's likley to be the rubber seal on regulator itself, the leak will be apparent as you screw the cannister into position. Coleman recommend returning the system to one of there authorised outlets for repairs. I have not seen parts for the regulator component sold seperately for DIY fitting.

I have a full propane gas cylinder for my grill in my garage. It is very cold in the garage and I'm getting a propane smell. Does the cold effect this or is there probably another problem?

Cold shouldn't present any special hazard to a propane cylinder. Just make sure the valve is fully off. You can check for leaking with a little soapy water solution around the valve - look for bubbles. If any doubt, remove from enclosed space.

Losing brake fluid with no leak

It's a sealed system, so it's got to be going somewhere, leaking somewhere (or boiling off from severe braking operations over and over). Since you likely haven't experienced extreme braking, it must be leaking somewhere.
You will have to trace all your brake lines from the master cylinder to each wheel to check for any sign of leaking. Front calipers are easy to spot leaks when they leak. If you have drum brakes on the rear, you may need to pull off the drum to check the wheel brake cylinders. Peel back the rubber boot on each end of the wheel cylinder and look for any fluid leaks there.
Another place to check is at the back of the master cylinder. If a seal is bad there, it has been known to leak fluid inside the car, under the dash. Feel around the carpet under and behind the brake pedal for any wetness. If you find brake fluid there, you will need the master cylinder replaced or rebuilt.
Hope you find the problem. Don't forget to check the ABS system and brake lines, too.

2001 Chevy ss Camaro throwing codes 171 & 174 what is it?

These codes ( Cylinder banks one and two lean) indicate that your engine is running lean, that is to say to much air and not enough fuel, since both cylinder banks are giving the same system lean code you do have a problem with fuel mixture control and not the O2 sensors, look for engine vacuum leaks like hoses, spray around the intake manifold with propane to see if the engine sounds different, when you find a leak it will change the idle speed, you can also have a detective Mass Airflow sensor or loose hose clamps on the engines air intake hose after the MAF sensor. causing this if no vacuum leaks are found

I am looking at a hyundai that has a high idle when in park or neutral, but comes down to normal when in gear.The owner said that he put a cheap code reader on it and it said that it needed a chip for the...

There is no such part as a chip in the electronic engine control system or the automatic idle speed control system which is controlled by the systems computer (called the PCM. Let me explain how the idle speed control system works, there is a valve on the engine (called the Idle Air Control or "IAC") that passes a metered amount of air (creates a controlled vacuum leak) coming into the engine around the engine throttle valve, this metered leak of air raises the engines idle speed. The reason that the idle comes down when you put it in gear is that you put a load on the engine. The causes of a high idle speed are most often a vacuum leak at the engines intake or a vacuum leak due to a large vacuum leak elsewhere. The 1st thing to do here is check the intake for leaks, to do this get a bottle of propane and the torch adapter that goes on it, remove the screw off end from the torch pipe, and put a 2 foot length of rubber hose on it or plastic hose, start the engine and warm it up, then trun on the propane to a low flow and spray the gas around the top of the engine and listen for changes in the engines idle speed, if you find a vacuum leak you will hear the engine idle change. Repair the leak as needed.

I have had 3-4 spark plugs crack on the inside insulator on cylinder 3 causing misfire issues. What is a possible solution?

Porcelain usually cracks due to excessive heat. Excessive heat in the cylinder of an internal combustion engine is usually caused by a lean mixture. A lean mixture is quite often the result of a vacuum leak. I would check for a vacuum leak on the #3 cylinder intake runner as well as the intake manifold gasket. You can use spray carb cleaner or propane.

Brakes seem to "let up" when trying to come to a complete stop, does not do it when only slowing, like during highway driving

It sounds like you may have a vacuum leak. The brake booster stores enough vacuum to give you pedal assist when stopping. The supply is not unlimited. Sometimes there is a cannister to increase the reserve and the cannisters look like a coffee cans and rust through. Or the brake booster (big round thing) behind the master cylinder can leak. There is also a valve on the supply line which can leak.

To test these areas technicians use a gas like propane while the engine is running and use a hose to route the gas around the seams of the brake booster, supply valve, and backup cannister I mentioned.

When the gas is drawn into the engine, the rpm will increase and you will know there is a leak. The propane will not hurt the engine and some states check emmisions with propane as well.

You may want to do a vacuum test of the engine to see if it is putting out enough to give you good braking.

Hotpoint gas oven 5yrs old pre heats fine but then doesn't keep temp up.

You have either a faulty oven thermostat, or your oven door seal is faulty. You can check the oven door seal by doing the following (you will need a A4 piece of paper):

Open the door put the paper against the seal, close the door. Now pull the paper slowly out, if there is resistance then the seal is fine.

The oven thermostat test is as follows (you will need a stopwatch):

Turn your oven on to the lowest setting,when it goes to high flame start timing it the oven should cut down within 8 minutes, if this doesn't occur your stat is faulty.

I hope this helps
