SOURCE: How full and with what oil to fill pump vent.

Any pressure washer pump should be no more than half full. The reason is if you fill it completely up when the piston strokes it will blow the seals out of the pump. Usually there is a sight gage on the side of the pump. I will look your model up and see what I can find as far as quantity for the pump. I won't be too long just read the 2nd response and please do not rate this one. I will get back to you ASAP.

Why wont my radiater hold water and why is my catalatic converter getting red hot?

You may have a small leak in your water pump and it only leaks when you drive. Or god forbid a cracked block and the water is mixing with your oil (see white smoke coming from tailpipe?)

What would be the best oil to use in a 1999 3.5lt v6 magna with 305000 klm

Spark plug leads need to be good as high resistance in a lead can cause coil problems, which in turn can cause high hydrocarbon readings to damage O2 Sensor and overheat and melt the CAT. In fact any miss be it plug, valve, lead, coil or compression will lead to O2 Sensor and CAT damage.

1999 mercury grand marquis occasionally overheats, leaks around radiator cap, makes gurgling noise on passenger side. Have replaced heater core, water pump, thermostat, hoses,& radiator cap.

Check the antifreeze for oil, pull your dipstick out, see if antifreeze is in oil or smells sweet or over full, sounds like you may of a bad head gasket. You can also check this by having a compression test done on the cylinders.

What is the red cap on the cat pump for? And why is oil or some type of redish colored fluid coming out of it?

The red cap is for adding lubricating oil for the crankcase in the pump. If oil is coming out of it while it is running a seal in the head wore out and water is getting into the crankcase and displacing the oil.

I have excell 3700 pressure washer...the pump cover vibrated loose lost oil and cam do i get parts and change pum cam?

When you get down to it, purchacing oil end parts for a pressure washer is not cost effective.

The crank(cam) shaft runs about 280.00 dollars. The oil seals, new bearings, possibly new pistons and almost definatly new seals would be at least a hundred more. You can get a new pump for about 400 dollars and won't have to do all the work.
