You need to remove the top and replace the gasket, but first loosen the screws a bit, push the gasket in , re-tighten screws, that may work

Fumes enter when outside vents are open. Toyota could not find problem.

probably exaust manifold gasket leak or the doughnut gasket between manifold and exaust pipe is bad.

Ice forming inside fridge

Ice forming us typically caused by an air leak. There is moisture in the air around us and when it sneaks into a freezing cold environment, that moisture turns into tiny ice crystals and sticks near where it leaked in. The first thing to check is the door gasket. The easy way is to try to slide a business card where the gasket sticks to the door while the door is closed. If you can get the card in the gap, then air can get through there. You can try to repair the door gasket or buy a new one. It is also possible it is leaking through where the water line comes in. Check to make sure the openings are sealed. You can use something like Permagum to fill in any holes. The last thing I could think of is a water line leaking on you ice maker. That would likely be a solid ice chunk where an air leak looks more like hard snow. If that is the case you'll have to pull it apart and find where it is leaking.

I think i have a cracked head on my nissan terrano

When you had the head gasket done, did you find out what caused the overheating in the first place?
Did you replace the thermostat with a genuine Nissan one..they are not cheap but they work well?
Did you have the radiator taken out, the top and bottom tanks taken off and the radiator rodded through to make sure there was total efficiency of the radiator?
have you checked that the water pump is working, and that the thermostatic fan hub is reacting correctly to heat, and actually working when the engine gets hot?
have you had the whole cooling system put under pressure and left overnight to see if there are leaks anywhere?
Do you have any white sickly sweet vapors coming from the tailpipe on startup?

White exhaust smoke from a gasoline engine usually means coolant leaking into the engine block.
Is the coolant in the radiator full ?

Air leaks when triggered and no nail

Make sure no nails in gun. With air connected listen for leaking thru nose of the gun also. If leaking thru nose slightly, air is getting past the cylinder seal oring and/or top of cyl is not seating against headvalve. Repair leak to nose of gun before trying to fix head leak. With no air leaking thru nose of gun, add plenty of white grease to orings in the head (one oring at a time) to see if leak is less and/or grease will streak behind the leaking oring. Then repair as needed. May need slightly thicker oring or sand surface where oring makes contact to remove scratches that are allowing air to pass. Also air can enter the head thru the small port in the gasket leading to the head (make sure that the gasket is sealing).

Bostitch staplet leaking air at the top. I took the black bumper off and removed the black top four screw. I noticed that there was not a felt or any kind of gasket here. Next the three screw that hold...

No gasket needed for the black top. Spray soapy water on gun to determine exactly where air is leaking. If leaking from screws, remove the three screws and make sure that there is a good gasket between the actuator and the poppet. Check actuator for damage and oring should make good contact against body of gun. Remove scratches from body where oring makes contact with very fine sandpaper. Air is sealed by the oring of the actuator and the three screws. Good luck

I have a pancake compressor that won't hold air pressure, leaks out of the small hole in the head. I have replaced the head gasket and air pressure valuve and still leaks out of the hole in the top head.

If you replaced the head gasket then its probably the valve plate and gasket.

Porta Nailer Air leak ( gasket ? ) compression chamber

More likely an O-ring. When they spring a leak, you buy a kit that contains all the gaskets and O-rings and replace them all. An easy job. Hope this helps.

Thermostat issues on 99 eclipse non turbo

Well the antifreeze has to go somewhere so its either going out onto the ground via hose or gasket, or it can get into you oil system via gasket or out the tailpipe via gasket. Since you said you cant smell it I would look for a puddle on the ground or in the oil. But since you said its knocking i would have to say head gasket is leaking antifreeze into the oil.... Pull out your engine oil dipstick and see if its white/foamy, if it is its the headgasket/head issue.
