Do i need a special tool to remove the transmission seal on a 2002 kia sportage?


Which Seal?

Have you gotten under & checked the driveaxle seals?

The big leak will be the torque converter pump seal
That requires removing the transxale

Sort of old to do that & not rebuild the trans while your at it

The toilet has been leaking slowly and it's trying to fill us every few mins, seems like the flapper or the seal is leaking. How do I know which one?


hold the flapper down and see if it stops leaking but it is almost positively the flapper. turn the water off, remove the old flapper, adjust the chain on the new flapper to the length of the old flapper, wipe the port area where the flapper seals to remove residue, install new flapper.

Leaking seal on front fork


leaking seals usualy require replacement you will first need to remove the front wheel then the mud gaurd haveing done that losen the pinch bolts on the top & bottom tripple clampsthis will allow you to turn &pull down on the fork legs fascilitating the removal of same once removed useing a suitable receptacle ie a tub you dont mind getting oil in remove the drain plugs from the bottom of the fork legs pushing down on the staunchions will force the oil out once you are satisfied there empty you can comence dismantling remove the top caps turn them upside down this will allow the spring to be removed at this point you will either need to use the special yamaha tool to undo the staunchion from the tube assumeing you dont have said tool you can improvise by useing an extension bar and socket to hold the internal nut use a rattle gun to undo the bolt once you haveseperated the staunchion from the leg you will be able to prise the old seals out if you do not have the correct tools to press the new seals in with the staunchion & leg together you will need to use the old seal to aid you to tap the new one in if you have to use this method I advise you to place the new seal in the freezer for a while before insertion into the leg this will shrink the seal & make it easier to fit place the new seal into the top of the leg then place one of the old seals upside down on top of the new one useing a soft faced hammer tap the new seal into place useing the old seal as a drift before comenceing reasembly take care to lubricate the lip of the seals before inserting the saunchions good luck

When i do oil change, oil leaks somewhere around the oil filter, after the engine warm up leak stops. is not leaking its driping.


when you remove the old oil filter. insure the old filter seal came off with the filter. then when installing the new filter wet the new seal of the filter with a little oil. just dip your finger into new oil and smear it on the seal.

Dishwasher leaking


There is a front door seal that may be the issue. It seals along the door sides/top and continues under the door to seal the bottom surface when closed. Mine pulled out of the seal channel under the open door where you can't see it without a small mirror. The seal took a "fixed set" out of the channel so now it will not stay put. It requires replacement.
Hope this helps.

Leaking Solution Tank/Seal Install - Hoover Steam Vac


Not sure this will help, but we have a Hoover Steamvac F5843 and our valve seal seemed to have shrunk so the tank was leaking. Bought a new seal and had the same problem. How to install? There weren't any instructions or pictures of the part(s) involved in the manual. Online there were a few pics but nothing helpful. After careful examination of the existing part and where it was supposed to be, I removed the original off the valve stem, placed the new one on it and carefully pressed the valve stem with the seal into place. It didn't look quite right and we were thinking "now what?". My wife and I got the idea at the same time...install the clean water tank (with the stem & seal in the bottom) back onto the steam cleaner. I took it back off to see what the stem & seal looked like afterwords and voila...the seal was perfectly inserted where it should be and the tank no longer leaks! The 'peg' that presses up on the valve stem pushed the seal perfectly in place.

There is a water leak somewhere in my 98 toyota camry that leaks into my passenger side floor. There is no sun roof and no visible leaks from the windows or doors. Any thoughts? A/C leak maybe? water...


I am the original owner of camry xle 1998 with wet floors. In 2000 I had drivers side door seal leaking at welt. Removed old door seal and new weather strip on drivers side installed. The door panel was never wet, but wet at bottom of door where there are drain holes...slowly leaking under carpet.
In 2001 later water again. Coming from overflowing A/C evaporator-drain plugged/ tank full of debris. Removed evaporator, cleaned + drain cleaned.
In 2003, driver door seal against window rotted. Removed door panel and found leak at window belt molding at the mirror joint inside + out. Lots of mold under carpet needed to replace! Made a fuss at dealers for reacurring problem and they replaced the carpet for free.

Frigidaire Dishwasher Leaking


I just found a service release number for my Frigidaire dishwasher that says it applies to Serial numbers TH632 through serial number TH737 made in 2007 for a replacement kit for the door seal at the bottom of the door. The bottom door seal has been changed, adding side seals that restrict the water surge from the center spray arm. The part number for the new seal is p/n 154588201. This seal can be replaced without removing the dishwasher or either of the door panels.
The seal is located on the bottom of the inner door panel and appears as a cream colored flexible
rubber blade bonded to a milky white colored plastic strip. To remove and properly install
replacement follow the instructions carefully.
1. Replacing this seal can be accomplished without disconnecting power from the unit.
Always use extra care when electrical power is present while serving an appliance.
2. Open door all the way down and remove lower rack. Set rack aside to a safe location.
3. Locate the seal on the bottom of inner door panel. Facing front of unit, the right side of the
seal can be pulled down slightly to facilitate removal.
4. Pull seal straight into the tub from right side.
5. With seal removed, and before installing replacement seal, locate the channel in inner door
panel that the seal mounts into. Locating this channel before installing the replacement can
make this procedure easier.

6. Place the new seal on a flat surface and measure from the bottom of the seal, (See Figure
1 to determine bottom of seal), up 3/8 "of an inch and place a mark with a pen or marker on
both ends (See Figure 2). If needed, scribe a straight line between these two marks this
will give you a guide when installing seal into the inner door panel.
7. The seal can only be installed one way. The end that holds this seal into the inner door
panel has a ½ inch notch cut in the right side. This notch allows the seal to be installed
around the end of the inner door channel that holds the seal.
8. Line up the seal along the bottom of the inner door panel and start from the right side, push
the seal into the door channel to the line marked in step #6.
9. With seal in place close the door, the tub will align the seal as needed.
10. Reinstall lower rack and operate unit to check for leaks.
If leaks continue to occur at the bottom corners, order Splash shield kit 154701001 for
dishwasher.

Before installing the kit remove and reinstall the lower door seal. To install the lower seal make
sure you measure up from the bottom of the seal 3/8 of an inch and mark the seal, do this on
both ends. This locates how far down the seal needs to be before closing the door. Do not
install this seal without measuring it first. After the lower door seal has been re-installed then
install the splash shields according to the instructions accompanying with the kit.
