Please be more specific. Did it leak engine oil out on the grass before it quit running? Or did it leak transaxle oil out before it quit moving? Were there any strange noises before the failure? and if so, where did it sound like it was coming from? Either way its about the same cost. Engine or transaxle. Both can be rebuilt but it is not cost effective to do so. Loss of oil in large quantities during operation in either indicates major internal damage. Cost of a replacement transaxle is about $800. Cost of a replacement power unit depends on make and whether or not you get a short block or a complete motor. A Kohler short block is about $ 700. But maybe Im jumping ahead of myself. Please describe in greater detail what happened. Try to determine exactly where the fluid came from ( i.e. is a seal leaking or is there a hole in the casting)
Hi, yes it is a possible that you may have leaking seals . I have a link for you to check out and it may be of some help with the Sankyo SD-508 compressor.I have repaired Refrigeration systems for a lot of years.What I would do is locate/pinpoint leaks in you're system.I don't know if you charge the system you're self, but if you do there is a 99.9% chance of you locating this leak, and you will know what is leaking.If it has pressure in the system at this time, you can take a soap and water solution, Liquid soap or better yet, you can buy it at Orchard supply Hardware already to go for gas and freon leaks. I have the most high tech tools available to locate leaks, but always go back to useing this soap to find a leak.Spray it on all joints seals, the weak links in a system like where you add the freon at the scrader valve? Soap down all of these places and you will find your leak. You cant assume it is maybe just a seal.You can pressurize with nitrogen gas or freon. Dont forget to check the evaporator.Good Luck and here is a link that may be helpful, www.citroen-sm.org/wiki/index.PhP/Air_Conditioning. Let me know what you find. Shastalaker7
It sounds like the internal works are starting to corrode. You can remove the rubber shield and use a flashlight with the unit unplugged of coarse and look to see if something is caught under one of "teeth". If you don't see anything, then replace the unit.
