You could do this but leak could also be around oil filler plug if not seated. The main engine bearing seal is more likely if the unit is old with large number of hours.

If you find a bad gasket, replace with the silicone make your own sealant AND DO NOT overtighten screws. That can worsen the problem with gaskets.

Where is the leak coming from on my 1995 honda accord lx


oil leaks around the filter generally mean that the oil filter is too tight and the gasket is damaged , filter installed on a dry gasket, -damaging the gasket, lip of the filter is faulty--manufacturing problem, the old gasket for the filter was not removed before fitting a new filter--- gasket squeezing out
remove the filter, best replace with a new filter, remove any old gasket stuck to the housing, put a thin film of oil on the new gasket and screw up to touch then 1/4 turn ( fitting instructions on the box or filter)
do not over tighten

Oil leaks away from around filter when eng stopped for awhile


Probable cause is that filter had problem when last installed:
- Seal should be moistened with clean oil prior to installation
- Make sure seating surface is clean prior to installation
- Filter should be turned as snug as possible with hands, then about 1/3 turn more.
- check for leaks after running first time, and then tighten another 1/4 turn if leaking

FOR NOW, try tightening it by hand, if loose, follow above procedure.... If it's time for an oil change, now could be the perfect time to do it.

Yardworks snow blower


Leaks are normally from bad seals or ones put on engine wrong. Many snow blowers leak oil, very common. Electric start needs to be taken apart. Rust is problem most likely. When you engage the starter it kicks out the gear to turn over engine. Carefully remove the starter from engine, try to start starter an if the pinion gear does not kick out from starter disassembly it an try to clean rust away from action. Dont break wires around electric motor careful about getting dirt an rust in winding. Try to lube spring an moving parts around gear. One other thing it could be a sheared off gear on starter also.

Motor oil leaking


How could you tighten the screws and have them loose again? That does not make any sense. Get specs and use torque wrench this time.

Fuel leaking out of 2 hoses connected to the carb cant stop the fuel leak


Inspect the fuel inlet hose closely. If you notice a wet spot around the hose where it joins the carburetor fitting, or the hose has become swollen, soft, brittle or hard, replace the fuel hose and the small fuel filter inside the carburetor fitting. Install a new worm clamp to tighten the new fuel hose to the fitting. Use a Phillips screwdriver.

Check for a fuel leak around the accelerator-pump cover assembly. Some carburetor models come equipped with a diaphragm-accelerator pump on the side of the unit. If the cover screws have come loose, fuel will leak through the diaphragm and external cover. Look for a square cover on the side of the carburetor and tighten the cover mounting screws at each corner with a Phillips screwdriver.

Look around the gasket located between the carburetor upper body and the main, or lower body. This gasket may have worn out or the carburetor upper body mounting screws may have become loose, allowing fuel to leak outside the carburetor.

Ensure the upper body mounting screws are tight, if you found a leak. If they are tight, remove the clip holding the throttle linkage to the carburetor with a pair of needle-nose pliers and reposition the linkage to the side. The linkage allows the driver to operate the throttle plates in the carburetor through a cable when depressing the accelerator pedal. Unfasten the screws holding the carburetor upper body from the main body with a ratchet, short ratchet extension and socket. Remove the old gasket and install a new one.

Inspect around the bottom of the carburetor where it joins the intake manifold if no leaks were found around the gasket located between the carburetor upper body and the main, or lower body. If you find a wet spots or marks around the bottom of the carburetor, the base plate gasket is leaking. Remove the upper and main carburetor body using a ratchet, short ratchet extension and socket. Install a new base gasket and replace the carburetor assembly.

Oil leak


nstalling the Oil Pan
  • Make sure the sealing surface of the pan's rim is flat and capable of providing a seal before reinstalling it.
  • Check the flanges of a steel oil pan for warpage.
  • Use a straightedge or lay the pan, flange side down, on a flat surface with a flashlight underneath it to spot uneven edges.

  • Carefully check the flange around bolt holes. Minor distortions can be corrected with a hammer and block of wood.
  • If the flanges are too bent to be repaired in this manner, the pan should be replaced.
Once it has been determined that the flanges are flat, install the oil pan with a new gasket.
  • Tighten the screws evenly. Do not tighten any of the screws all of the way until all of the screws are started in their threads.
  • Use an inch-pound torque wrench to torque the screws to specifications.
  • Look this up in the service manual. Specifications usually range from 60 to 150 inch-pounds. This is not very much, but it compresses the gasket and allows it to work properly.
