Yes - there should be a small hole at the bottom to allow water to weep back into the tub.

Does the stop leak work by swelling the rubber seals or by detecting air and stopping up the leak?

It depends what sort of stop leak you're talking about. There's different types.

Something for a leaking windshield rubber works by filling a gap and then becomes hard, similar to how bathroom sealant works.

An oil stop-leak works by penetrating and 'refurbishing' -swelling- dried gaskets and then hardening when it contacts the air on the outside of the engine block.

Some types of coolant sealant work by allowing particles to congregate/collect around a small hole in a radiator, blocking the hole. The particles harden due to the air/heat to form a plug. This type of sealant can also block your heater matrix, and they do not repair rubber hoses (hoses must be replaced if leaking).

A cylinder head sealant works by either depositing particles in a small crack in the head or gasket, or in the case of a modern head sealant, it uses polymers.

If you have a slight oil leak - slight - on an engine or auto box, try a sealant. If it's anything more than a slight weep, then gasket/seal replacement is the best option.

How to remove rear brake drum on a toyota tazz 2004 model

3 methods: Sometimes you have to get to the adjusters from behind the drum, and turn the brake shoes inward, so the drum slides past them. Sometimes tricky to turn the adjuster wheel inside the drum (look for a rubber plug to remove and see the adjuster.) A couple of small screwdrivers will be needed, one to turn the adjuster wheel, and one to push a little clip away from the adjuster wheel so it can turn-tricky till you get the hang of it.
2. Best way to remove the drum, if your drum has two small drilled and threaded holes just out from the drum's center hole and opposite each othe on the drum-those holes are for drum removal. Find or buy two short bolts that will fit the holes and turn them in evenly. The bolts will contact the backing plate and force the drum outward. Usually you need to get it just moving a very little, then it will come off.
3. As a last resort, you can always heat the drum with a propane torch till the metal expands from the heat (15 minutes?). Tap it all around with a hammer, it should come free. Often what holds the drum fast is the center hole can have a rust build-up-sort of tacks itself to the center hub.

I broke my rubber door seal loose on the passenger side in the icey weather today. what/how is the cheapest way to repair it? i am not using the remote, because that quit working a month ago after it ran...

Go to you local autoparts retailer you will need little tree clips that go into holes in the rubber seal and in turn push into holes in the door and you will need a tube of weather sealant glue.... Clean the rubber seal on the door and pull out the old tree clips ( tilt them on about a 45 degree angle to get them out don't tear the rubber) next put in the new tree clips you have bought following the same instructions on how you removed the old ones. Finally put sealant glue on the rubber where it contacts the door ( all the way around) and also on the door frame itself where the rubber will contact allow the glue to get tacky on door and rubber (Approx 10 mins) start at one end pushing the rubber back onto the door and inserting the tree clips as you go along when you get to the end viola your done! hope this helps

Rear brake drums won't come off

Try penetrating oil around center hole and 8mm holes if rust is present. Then, pound hard on the radius edge between face of drum and top/bottom braking surface.

If no luck, you might need to back off the shoe adjustment rod located behind an oblong hole on the bottom of the backing plate.

Youll see small teeth if you view through the oblong hole(might have a rubber plug in it)
Put a screwdriver in the hole and try to ratchet the teeth in one direction or another (it will only go in one direction) once you see which way it moves, usually with a corresponding "click", need to turn it the other way.

To do this, you must take a small thin screwdriver or ice pick and poke it in past the small toothed gear until it hits a surface. Put more pressure and you should feel it move.
This is the ratcheting arm that kept you from moving the gear in the other direction.

Now you should be able to turn the toothed wheel in the opposite direction to loosen the brake shoes from the braking surface of the drum.

The 8mm bolt holes are there to help pull the drum, but, if the shoes have worn into the drum a lot, it leaves an edge on the inner edge of the drum which wont let the drum slide past the shoes, which is why you need to back off the adjustment rod to pull the shoes away from the drum to allow it to be removed.

If all else fails, the shoes are held against the backing plate by two pins, held in place by small coil springs and keeper plates.

If you look at the backing plate, you should see two small circular discs at the roughly 3 oclock and 9 oclock positions. These are the heads of the keeper pins which hold the shoes on to the backing plate. Take a small and preferably sharp chisel, and shear these small discs off the backing plate. Now, you should be able to pry off the drum and survey the damage. You will need to replace these parts. Ask your parts dealer for a "spring kit" for the rear drum brakes of your particular vehicle.

Hope this helps

How to remove rear brake drums on 2002 frod escape

Behind the brake mounting plate there is a small hole with a rubber plug on the top portion.

Remove the plug. Look from the back of the vehicle and you will see a star wheel in the hole. Stick

a long skinny screw driver with a large blade and rotate it in the direction of risistance.(clockwise).

You will hear a spring poping noise. Rotate a few times and the drums will turn freely.

Then you can slide the drums off.

Holes in clothes

Inspect the rubber seal, and steel drum to make sure there is no foreign object sticking out, which could be tearing holes in your clothes. Also check to see if any of the holes in the steel drum are dented in. or out or misshaped, as this could cause the tumbling action of the drum to tear clothes.
