Amost guarantee it's a problem with the sealing O-Ring(s) that sits between the faucet body and the spout (or gooseneck). Fixing this requires disassembling the faucet. Allen keys, pliers, Screwdrivers required for this operation.

After you have the faucet apart, use open mesh grit cloth to sand the inside body of the spout, wipe it clean and grease it with silicone grease. New O-Rings may be indicated as well, but if the old ones looks ok (eg. the don't come off black on your fingers and they don't look compressed or kinked) grease them as well and reassemble faucet.

1995 oldsmobile cutlass ciera thermostat location and how too replace

Follow the upper radiator hose to where it meets the engine. The thermostat is under that "goosneck." You have to drain the coolant, remove the goosneck, scrape off the old gasket, replace the thermostat and reinstall.

Where is the freeze plug location on 1997 chevy 3/4 ton 2500

ther are a number of freeze plugs on that motor , if I remember there are 2 on each side and 2 in the front , pressure test it , you should find your leak then are you sure it is coming from the water pump the water goosneck is right on top of the manifold in the front , those are the only 2 things that can leak unless it is a head gasket on the outside which will not affect anything ,very rare but I have seen it , no hole in the heater hose or bad clamp crack somewhere , pressure test it, you should find it then good luck

Can I apply araldite adhesive or something similar to repair leak at base of waterwindow

Don't use araldite, because water will break it down. I think you need a new window and new gaskets.

Diagram uberhaus dual flush toilet leaking from bolts securing tank to the base

If the tank base has a good seal and when attached properly it will not leak. If the tank base has a line fracture or is pitted, it will leak. Inspect the base and the port the base sits in for any defects. Overnighting bolts can sometime cause damage to the seat and the only way to fix that is to use a silicone seal from a tube and apply lightly around the base, put the tank in place, tighten moderately, and let it sit unused for 24 hours until the seal cures.

Price Pfister kitchen faucet two handle with gooseneck and pull down spray. The pull down sprayer will not stay up in the goosneck.

It may also be a missing weight on the sprayer hose, or that the sprayer hose is obstructed. Open up the cabinet under the sink and look a half-loop of the sprayer hose that should be hanging down from the underside of the faucet. It must be able to descend without obstruction as you return the sprayer to the body of the faucet. If it is resting on a box of dishwashing soap or otherwise obstructed, then it doesn't have it's full weight to counterbalance the weight of the sprayer head. Capice? It needs the weight of the hose to 'weight it down'. Also, there should be a donut-shaped weight around the hose that should be able to freely slide to tha lowest position of the half-loop as the sprayer is extended and returned. Make sure that's working too.
