You can seal the cap by some tape, but it is better to get a good replacement, for the filter needs periodic maintenance. Your machine will not drain well if the filter is clogged.

I been replaced My radiator 2 times and i saw a leak ,so any advice forma this


It could be the overflow reservoir is overfilled, a defective radiator cap or the bearing seal hole on the bottom of the water pump is leaking(bad water pump). If not these things, place a large piece of cardboard under engine compartment, make a location reference mark on the cardboard and you may find your leak.

Hayward sand s166t. leaking from bottom


Are you sure it is leaking from a spot "Originating" at the bottom? Many times this is what is seen, but the water is actually traveling down the side.

If at the bottom, you either have a cracked tank, or the drain cap is loose, missing the cap gasket or it is on "Cross Threaded"?

But... most likely from experience, it leaking at the valve clamp.

MAKE SURE THAT WHEN YOU REPLACE THE FILTER IT IS IN THE SAME ORDER AS THE ONE YOU REMOVED OR THAT IT IS THE SAME MODEL TYPE REPLACEMENT , I WOULD TRY TO TURN IT AROUND FIRST , A THIN WRAP OF "WHITE PLUMBERS TAPE" , AROUND THE SCREW TOP INNER SEAL MAY CORRECT THE LEAK , ABOUT THE FILTER , WELL , IT MAY JUST BE SIMPLY IN THE REVERSE ORDER , TRY TO FILP THAT OVER , AND WHEN YOU RESEAL THE CAP ON THE FILTER MAKE SURE THAT THE SEAL IS ON PROPERLY , APPLY PLUMBERS TAPE ONCE AROUND , AND *"BEFORE YOU TIGHTEN IT" , GENTLY , REVERSE THE CAP BACKWARDS , SLOWLY , UNTIL YOU FEEL IT "SEAT " PROPERLY , "THEN" YOU MAY TRY TO RE-TIGHTEN IT . THIS SHOULD REMEDY YOUR LEAK , IF IT CONTINUES MAKE SURE THEN THAT YOU HAVE THE CORRECT REPLACEMENT FILTER MODEL FOR YOUR PARTICULAR ITEM . HOPE THIS HELPS YOU . NOW GO FIX IT ! GOOD LUCK .

My car's fanbelt broken on high speed and I saw the temperature raised so I stopped immediately before it could overheat but then I saw the water leak out.After replacing the fanbelt I put Water in again...


Hi,
You did well by shutting down quickly.
Why did the water come out when you stopped after the fan belt broke???
Residual engine heat. The engine has fiery explosions going on in the cylinders. Very hot.
Antifreeze flowing through the water jackets of the engine carry this heat away. Fan belt breaks, water pump stops pumping this very hot coolant away, engine temp goes up.
Thus the coolant temp rises enough to boil and push the coolant past the pressurized radiator cap out the overflow onto the ground.
I would recommend a fifty fifty blend of antifreeze and water for coolant. It just cools better.
Not seeing any leaks is very good. Smart thinking on your part saved you money.

My 385xp-husqvarna chainsaw with a 2 foot bar is leaking oil. I cut wood with it last saturday and woke up sunday morning to find a puddle of bar oil under neath of it. This has been a reaccuring event. ...


Husqvarna are reknown for this, remove the pump and pick up pipe with the filter on, slip a rubber o ring the correct size onto the hose, this will space the hose out the distance of the o ring and create a better seal against the oil pump body.
Fill the tank with petrol, this is much thinner than chain oil so you should very quickly see where the leak is.

I have a Homelite Super XL chain saw model 100454. Gas leaking around cap when turned on side to cut. Cork gasket look fine and surface is flat where cap in screwed on. Any help?


Just because that cork gasket "looks fine" does not mean it is working properly. Replace it with a polypropylene (oil and gas resistant rubber) gasket. That will clear up your fuel leak problem.

Car overheat frequently and at time the engine sound is very loud


Several things can cause this overheating. Have you recently done a:
1. Check Hoses for Leaks
2. Check Radiator for Leaks --- Also, Change Radiator Cap ( can loose pressure there if
cap is bad)
3. Check Water Pump for Leaks. If Water Pump is bad, you will hear a loud noise from it
4 Complete Tune Up? Should be done at least 1x a Yr. Depending on how much you drive the Vehicle. Includes: Plugs, Plug Wires, Gas Filter, Air Breather Filter, PCV Valve, Adjust Timing,
Check Belts -- see if worn
5. Changed your Thermostat & Gasket and have the correct degree Thermostat in the Vehicle?
6.. Had your Radiator Rod and Cleaned out?
7. Temperture Sending Unit (located near Thermostat) could be bad
8. 02-Sensor (Generally located in the Exhaust Manifold - needs a socket with a space in it
to allow the Socket to fit over this top wire of the 0-2 Sensor )
9. Change oil and oil Filter.
10. Change Gas Tank Cap ---

Do all this yearly ( except the Radiator Rod & Clean ( do every 2-3 yrs), and you should not have
any over-heating nor stalling out, etc. and should pass emissions as well.

GE Front Load Washer


Removing the lower front panel (3 screws nearest floor), and opening the round, white water pump filter cap (be ready to catch about 2 gallons of water!) is the best place to start. All you need is a Phillips head screwdriver and a large, flat pan (deep turkey tray works well)!

YOU WILL NOT BELIEVE what I found in my filter housing this morning (see photo below)!

The washer is working fine now, although I may go back and remove the entire water pump so it can be dismantled, thoroughly cleaned, and reinstalled.
