Hi. I have seen all sorts of material wrapped around the axles behind the wheels, long grass, string, rope, fabric. It gets picked up by the tread on the tryes, and gets wrapped around the axle as the machine drives along. This can wear or damage the seal in the side of the gearbox, where the shaft comes out.
Other times, if the machine has had a lot of use, the bearings can fail, and allow the shaft to move up and down, this movement will damage the seal.
Lift the machine on to blocks, remove the wheel, and check the condition of the bearings and seal. If it needs a new seal, and everything else looks OK, then try your local engineering supplies store. They might have the correct size seal for a cheaper price than a new gearbox.
You might have to add some more oil or grease, if too much has leaked out.
Good luck. Neil.

Have a 96 Buick Park Ave. In Aug I changed the thermostat because the temp gauge showed the motor was running cold. nothing changed. In Sept I had the water pump replaced because it started leaking. M

Is your 3800 producing normal heat? If so, the temp sensor is probably bad...If not, try replacing the radiator cap...if your system has air trapped inside, it usually runs hot, not cold...the heat is the key to functioning properly for you...Your radiator is a 4 stage huge system that normally cools very well...if you have heat, I still think your temp sensor is bad...ask to see one at your parts store, will help you to locate it. Hope this helps.

The engine sounds like it needs a valve adjustment. I am told there in no adjustment required on this vehicle. What is the best way to reduce the engine noise?

Sounds like a lifter may not be pumping up (assuming that it's hydraulic) You can add fuel treatments/ additives that helps lubricate the top end of the motor/piston. Also I think there is such stuff like honey bee oil, which is an extremely thick oil to help with valve seat leaks and blow-by etc..... May want to try 5 min motor flush to help clean the top end to see if it clears it up.

Too much brake dust

The build up of brake dust is from the use of organic brake pads. If you do not want to have to constantly clean your wheels you need to switch to ceramic pads. As for the glob of grease, I think I would check your CV joints at the end of your axle. There isn't too many places that hold a "huge" glob of grease on a modern vehicle.

Hp laserjet black globs

Your problem is that your Teflon coating on the fuser is very worn.
You need a new fuser, as the failures here are not always visible, because the black spots are formed to get the paper and fading with every turn.
But re-form when it enters another sheet with toner to the fuser and we start the cycle again.

Leak from the ice maker

I would first try to determine if the tray is level. There are usually screws that allow some side to side adjustment.

If the tray itself is actually leaking, you probably will have to replace the icemaker unit.

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

94 4Runner 4WD Question

1. I would suggest that you engage your 4WD while you are in full stop and/or safe range of 5mph, however as claimed by the local dealers your vehicle is capable of engaging even while driving. Engage your 4WD while moving only when necessity requires.
2. That clicking noise while turning extreme right or left would be the birfield of your axle and would only mean your front hub is still engage even though you have disengaged transfer case.
Have your front hubs cleaned of old lubricants or grease due to non usage. dont use grease as lubricants, use thick oil such as gear oil or silicone oil. and use your 4WD every now and then.

Do this first then check if you still feel somtehing is loose on your suspension and others.
