The heater sides do come off. Your heat exchanger will be what is leaking. Some people (I have never tried) have had them welded at a local radiator shops with some sucess though it is likely the heat exchanger will have several thin areas likely to fail in the near future if you have a leak now.

New heat exchangers are expensive. If you would like a quote, contact us with your heater model and serial number at www.arrowpools.net.

The longer you leave it leaking, the more likely you are to damage other parts down in the bottom of the heater so it is not something you should let sit. If you are going to go without it for a while, close the water off if you have a bypass. Otherwise, consider having the plumbing re-arranged to bypass the heater.

Last winter we had a couple of hard freezes here the ice cracked my return manifold. It is interesting it did not damage my heat exchanger, but it did not. Go in from the top. I replaced my return manifold. Not an easy job, but doable. The intake and return are either cast iron or bronze. Mine was cast iron and I replaced it with cast iron. Use the instructions in your manual tiled Reversible Water Connections (mine is 5.4). It's a "how to" in removing your heat exchanger and manifold. Follow the directions very carefully and don't rush yourself. Get some help lifting the heat exchanger/manifold unit out of the heater. It's heavy.....

Our 2004 Isuzu Rodeo has developed a coolant leak. The leak appears to be around or above a little panel or plate immediately behind the oil pan? Cannot find any other source. What is inside the littl


You will have to clarify behind the oil pan. Front of engine towards fan. Rear of engine transmission side. Or above the pan towards engine side. If there is coolant leaking from behind the engine (between the engine and trans) and is not running down from above eg head gasket or hose connection, chances are good that there is a frost plug leaking on the rear of the block.

Might possibly be a leaking heater core or a freeze plug on the side of the engine. A small leak might be patched up with some radiator sealer but I would show the leak to the mechanic who repaired the cylinder head first. Hopefully he missed something minor and solve your problem with ease.

12 year old water heater is getting near the end.
Some tanks last 20 years, but that's the exception.
To find exact age of your brand water heater:
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/WaterHeaterSerialNumberDecoder.pdf

Leaking TP valve:
1) Lift TP lever and gently lower back into position to see if that stops leak.
Occasionally something gets stuck in the valve.
2) Sometimes water heater temperature gets turned up because heater is not producing as much hot water as before, and higher temps cause TP to release pressure because of overheating.
Dial temperature down to 120 degrees.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-adjust-water-heater-temperature.html

3) If steps above don't fix problem, replace TP valve >> TP valves have 125 or 150 degrees rating >>> older tank shouldn't be running above 125 because higher temps cause more pressure on tank, so thermostat should be lower than 125 degrees TP rating.
Buy replacement TP at any hardware store + a roll of teflon tape to seal pipe threads.
Turn gas control to pilot ... this will keep pilot lit but burner will not fire.
Let water cool, and then drain some water out of tank.
If TP valve is on side of tank, then open drain on side of tank and drain water until it is lower than valve level. Open bathtub spigot to let air into line.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Water-heater-will-not-drain.html
Be careful around water that is higher than 120 degrees F >> you can get burned quickly >> apply cold water to any burn.
Use pipe wrench and unscrew TP valve counterclock-wise.
Install new TP and put teflon tape on threads.
Re-fill tank completely and open tub valve on hot side until water is running >> then turn gas control back to original position.
Do not fire up any water heater before tank is completely full of water or this could damage tank.

I have a 96 jeep grand cherokee straight 6 with 102000 miles i just found what appears to be water leaking inside the cabin under the passanger side seat and rear left side.


The drain for the water coming from the ac is clogged. Clean it up. It's easier to do that from underneath the car - the drain is located on the firewall.

Ice maker is leaking water into the ice container making a block of ice . leak seems to be in the front of the mold and heater assembly thanks for your help in advance


make sure your fridge is level. if water just keeps flowing, there may be an obstruction in the solenoid valve that lets the water flow or stops it. it's in the rear of the fridge where the water line attaches. usually blue or white plastic on a brass mount. you'd need to shut the water off, let it depressurize, disconnect the pipe (some water will come out), replace that valve, or take it apart to clean it.
