How to disassemble Little giant pump model#psm006?


thats why i like the little giant pumps they are put together with phillips screws not glued like them other guys , i do suggest that if you dissasemble pump and water has gotten inside , replace it not just seal it up and go , wont last long as that means the pump shaft seal has leaked , ther e has been a few folks that add dietary mineral oil to the inside , for use in very deep ponds (over 3 feet) they believe that helps keep the water out

Smoke from exhaust when start ls400 model1991 lexus color of smoke is gray it ends few second


the smoke is from engine oil, it is caused by leaking valve seals , after the engine is shut down for the day oil is leaking past the valve seals and getting into the cylinders then when you start up the engine the oil is burned off, this is a common problem, and there is a couple of things you can do to help the problem with out taking the engine apart and replacing the seals, try this first at your next oil change add some Restore to the engine oil it will soften the seals and give them a little more life, if this does not cure the problem after a few 100 miles then you will need to have the seals replaced, and this is a costly repair, but you could just live with the smoke it wont hurt any thing just keep an eye on the oil.

When i do oil change, oil leaks somewhere around the oil filter, after the engine warm up leak stops. is not leaking its driping.


when you remove the old oil filter. insure the old filter seal came off with the filter. then when installing the new filter wet the new seal of the filter with a little oil. just dip your finger into new oil and smear it on the seal.

Newer oil pan gaskets for Ford, not like original..leaking again


try warming up the engine a little then re-tightening the bolts,if that doesnt work,mark where its leaking and pull the pan back off and apply sealant to that area a little heavier than the rest of the gasket surface,dont use too much on a new gasket,just a really thin coat...USE "ULTRA BLUE" sealant,NOT blue or black RTV silicone,silicone wears out and it can leak after a while..Allow the ultra blue sealant to dry for about 30 minutes before re-assembling it,and clean off all oil from the gasket before applying the sealant,its ok to apply it to both sides of the gasket,and add a glob to all 4 corners where the gasket meets with rubber seals around the crankshaft,but put those globs on right before you put the pan back in place,the sealant has to be wet to squish in enough..i hope this helps

You can use a dielectric oil available at most motor repair shops. It is of the utmost importance to make sure the cord seal is in good condition and well sealed

OIl leak in 2001 Grand Cherokee Laredo


valve cover gasket is like $20 and a do it yourself job, just buy a manual like a chiltons from an auto parts store. if it was valve cover, the smoke would be coming from engine, not tailpipe.

rear seal is in between engine and tranny, this would cause oil to leak on ground, but not to burn

if smoke is coming from tailpipe, your piston rings might be going bad. that is an expensive repair, but switching to synthetic oil may give you several more years of life out of the piston rings, synthetic oil has a way of soaking into bad piston rings and temporarily making them like new again, unless they are already too far gone.
