Water pump was replaced 5 months ago. car has had intake gasket kit installed 2 years ago, coolant continues to leak profusely from water pump. I'm getting conflicting info from both guyI ha


There is a chance that the leak might not be from the water pump itself, rather it may be from the bolts that mount it to the engine block. From my reading I have found it stated that the longer water pump bolts, and specifically the lower right one, extend into the water jacket. If these bolts were not cleaned properly and did not have proper thread sealant applied to them when reinstalled, water will leak from them.

Antifreeze leaking


If it is at the water pump there can be several reasons for that . all old gasket has to be removed as ant left will not allow the new gasket to seal. Always good gasket sealant on both sides of the gasket before fitting. If the bolts are different lengths then ensure that the right bolt goes in the right hole . If the bolt goes into the water jacket then the bolt threads will have to be dipped in thread sealant before installing

I have an electric 50 gallon hot water heater 2 years old its seemed to be leaking by the upper heating element. I replaced the elment and it still leaks what could be the problem


It could leak trough the bolts that holds the element, the gasket as well, and it could be a crack in the tank around the opening of the element if it's a plate type element, if it's a screw in type elemnt, than it could be a crack in the threads or you didn't seal the threads with proper compound...

1997 diahatsu charade ltd overheating no water leaks ,no water in oil, hopefully could be thermostat, were is thermostat located?


open the car hood. look at the radiator, and then the top radiator hose. follow that hose to the engine. the hose connects to the thermostat housing cap. under that cap is the thermostat. here's what you need: ratchet, and sockets, flat-tip screwdriver, scraper, pliers, a new thermostat (any auto parts store), a new gasket, and some gasket sealant. Question, how old are hoses? if 3 years or old, let change those also. 2 new hose, 4 hose clamps, and some coolant. If we're changing hoses with this, lets start. drain the radiator, and remove the hard hose first, the bottom. now remove the top.hose, and lets start the thermostat. remove the bolts holding down the cap, and gently pry off the cap. flip the cap over, and scrape it clean to metal(we want NO leaks). now reach down and remove the thermostat, and lets scrape the housing clean to metal. place the new thermostat in the housing, and lets put a thin coat of gasket sealant on the housing. place the gasket on the sealant, and pick up the cap. apply a little gasket to the cap. place on top of the gasket, and bolt it down. now hook the hoses(if your changing them)and let sit 30 minutes for the gasket sealant set. after that, let add the coolant, and water. start the car, let it warm up. when the new thermostat opens, add more coolant as need to top it off. Hope this helps

My water heater is leaking cold water from the bottom. How do I fix it? its a Richmond miser. Model # 8v30-1


First shut off power then remove acess cover and carefully move insulation out of the way so you can see around elements.Check to see if leak is coming from around element.If it is determine what type of element you have. Either screw in or bolted in. Both have thick rubber gaskets that can be replaced by draing water heater and removing element then install new gasket and reinstall element.
To drain heater shut off valve on incoming cold water supply line ,make sure electric power is off. Connect drain hose to drain valve and put other end to floor drain or sump basin.You can open faucet on hot side near by to prevent vacumn and drain. If you have screw in type disconnect wires,marking them for reattachment,then use large open end wrench or pipe wrench on hex section of element and turn to left to remove. If you have bolt in element spray bolts with wd-40 or similar and carefully loosen bolts then disconnect wires and remove element.install new gasket and reverse to reinstall. I would recommend that you replace elements at this time if you are sure this was the source of the leak.
If you don't think it's leaking around elements then check fitting on both water lines to water heater to be sure they are not leaking and seeping down thru insulation and leaking out of the bottom of heater. Next check around drain valve for leak and if it's leaking you can try tightening it a little or replace it with 3/4 x2 brass nipple and 3/4 inch female iron pipe boiler drain. Use teflon tape or pipe joint compound on all threaded connections.
After you have eliminated all other sources for leak then it is probably the tank itself. If it is less then six years old the tank should still be covered under warrenty. Most warrenties will give you a new heater but installation will not be covered unless you have extended service coverage.
I hope this helps you some. Thank you

  1. Drain the cooling system.
CAUTION When draining the coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted by the ethylene glycol antifreeze, and are quite likely to drink any that is left in an uncovered container or in puddles on the ground. This will prove fatal in sufficient quantity. Always drain the coolant into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused unless it is contaminated or several years old.
  1. Disconnect the lower radiator hose from the water pump.
  2. Remove the drive belt, fan, fan spacer, fan shroud, if so equipped, and water pump pulley.
  3. Remove the alternator pivot arm from the pump.
  4. Disconnect the heater hose at the water pump.
  5. Remove the water pump.
  6. Before installing the old water pump, clean the gasket mounting surfaces on the pump and on the cylinder block. If a new water pump is being installed, remove the heater hose fitting from the old pump and install it on the new one. Coat the new gaskets with sealer on both sides and install the water pump in the reverse order of removal. Torque the mounting bolts to 14-18 ft. lbs.

Water pump still leaks 92 cadillac deville


yes always use gasket sealer on both sides of the gasket. and make sure the old gasket is completely removed but do not use a chisel ar anything as you will leave gouges in the metal and cause a leak. Best to clean it is with some sand paper and just take your time. And just a thougtht but all i use is the black gasket sealer. It seems to wwork the best.

1992 Toyota Previa van,Oil dripping onto exhaust manifold, replace head gasket? need a free manual!


The toyota previa uses a formed silicone gasket for the valve cover and the cover is held in place by metric shoulder bolts ( 10mm). The valve gasket leaks because you can't get enough preload on the bolts to re-seat the old gasket when it gets old and shrinks. The shoulder bolts only allow you to tighten the gasket enough to seat the shoulder on the bolt. If you continue to torque down the suspected bolts, you will snap the bolt off ( don't ask me how I know this ). You can either 1.)replace the old gasket with a new one or 2.) remove the existing bolts around the leak area and put in new metric bolts that do not have a shoulder. You may want to put in a small sleeve into the existing bolt hole but shorter than the thickness of the valve cover to account for the smaller diameter bolt. You can now torque down the bolt and get enough preload to seal the valve cover without removing the old gasket. Make sure you use a torque wrench ( in-lbs) or be very careful not to snap these small valve cover bolts.
