none. if you use a gasket dont use sealant. Also never use sealant on a automatic trannsmission. It could damage the tranny and will not last.

You changed your transmission fluid and now you have a leak?

it could be couple of things depending on where its leaking from also when u change a transmission fluid u r suppose 2 change the gasket and the filter if u didn't that might be ur problem but if u did then check the following 1) the bolts might be loose but dont tightened it too much 2) the transmission might be overfilled 3) the surface of the transmission pan might have been damaged 4) if u used a sealant to make a gasket make sure its the correct sealant..........and like i said it all depends on where its leaking from

Can too much transmission fluid cause the transmission to slip?

No, but too much pressure can cause gasket issues which are even worse.

Your 1999 Oldsmobile Alero thermostat gasket is leaking even after you replaced it how do you fix this?

Rtv sealant, get a new gasket then cover all mating surfaces of the thermostat housing, and the inlet pipe with rtv sealant. Keep in mind that the sealant will squirt out when you the tighten the bolts so don't put too much on there, just enough that a thin bead of sealant is visible all the way around the thermostat after the bolts have been torqued. Make sure to follow the directions on the package and allow the sealant to cure before you add fluid to the cooling system!

Changed the oil pan on a Chevrolet metro and now it will not startChecked fuel pump got gas what to do now?

I just went through this problem myself and what happens is that because of a poor design flaw the crankshaft position sensor air gap that connects to the oil pan goes out of spec if you put a gasket on oil pan or apply too much sealant. Remove oil pan eliminate gasket and just use sealant as that was what they originally did at the Chevy dealer and I put a gasket on the pan thinking they left it off and then had the problem you are having Exact same thing happened to me. This is correct. I want to add that I am almost certain that there is a difference in thickness between the gasket for the 4 cylinder and the 3 cylinder. I removed the gasket and went with sealant only and that resolved the problem.

Is head gasget sealing products safe?

Some head gaskets come with a coat of "Copper coat" sealant already on it. You can use copper coat on a head gasket safely. I prefer "Indian Head Shellac" myself. Just be sure to completely clean the heads first, and apply the sealant liberally. If you use too much, you can damage your engine by the sealant leaking into the engine itself.

i have 1999 honda accord automatic trans leaking fluid but work perfect somebody told me you need gasket between trans and engine is that wrightif it is how much cost ?

Gaskets are critical to proper operation. If you lose to much fluid your transmission will overheat and it will ruin the transmission. Unless you have several thousands of dollars lying around, I would recommend you get you Honda into a "certified" transmission mechanic. The cost of replacing the gasket: part=$75, Labor=$250 but this is better than the thousands it would cost to replace or rebuild the entire transmission.

How much bars leak head gasket and cooling sealant should you pour in a 1992 Lexus es300?

NONE!! These type products are emergency repairs and will not permanently fix a blown head gasket or cooling system leak. In fact they can cause problems later on. Do not use these type products at all. Have the problem repaired correctly with a permanent fix.
