Damaged or manufacturing defect in the seal before installation, improper installation, deterioration of the seal over time.

Usually, the wax seal has to be replaced. There is a possibility your toliet has a crack, but I would pull the toilet and replace the wax seal.

If the leak is by the passenger floor-- could be the heater core check to see if this leak is engine coolant or just water. Could be a leaking windshield seal could be a door seal could be evaporator line is plugged

Could be a bad seal, which will eventually cause your turbo to go out.

The wax ring is just to seal the toilet to the drain. It has no effect on the flushing.

Depends on where the leak is falling from it could be the rear main seal leak, transmission back part connected to the transfer case, or a front main seal leak, the transmission part connected to the engine block also a possiblity is the shifter gear box if you have a standard, which also be in the front near the front main seal.

A tranmsission leak from the bell housing will require trans removal to know cause of leak. It could be pump gasket, torque converter hub seal, or a cracked housing.A tranmsission leak from the bell housing will require trans removal to know cause of leak.

The 1997 Pontiac Sun fire axle seal can leak because of age. A bad wheel bearing is the most common cause for an axle seal to leak.

A broken seal would cause dirty water to jettison from a toilet. A plumber can fix it.

An "unlevel" toilet flange might be a little difficult for a wax ring to seal, but could not in any way be responsible for a tank leak. If the tank is leaking between the tank and bowl, remove the tank, check the tank itself for a crack or defect, then check the flange gasket and tank bolts and gaskets. How do you know your flange is unlevel?

The cam sensor seal can cause a leak if not installed correctly.

Answer 1It' possible that a badly worn seal which was already on the verge of failure could be "pushed over the line, and caused to leak by the severe shock and vibration involved in a tire separation failure, BUT a good bearing seal should not leak.

It is possible the seal is just worn out but check the driveshaft u-joints. If a u-joint is bad it could cause the driveshaft to wobble putting extra strain on the rear seal.

Could be the fron seal, rear seal, or pan gasket

Depends on whether you already purchased it and whether other parts are needed. If you have the toilet, a Kant leak, a wax seal,FLEXIBLE toilet supply, and the (nuts,bolts and washers) for screwing the toilet to the floor flange, plumber should not charge more than one hour of his rate to install it. Make sure the plumber does NOT silicone around the toilet. If there is a leak from the wax seal under the toilet and it is siliconed, the water stays under the toilet and rots the floor, if you are on a wood floor.

Yes--If the base seal is broken!!

It sounds like a faulty seal, you may need to pull the toilet off the ground and change the seal, they are inexpensive and you can find them anywhere like Home Depot or maybe a place like Walmart. If the seal is broken or not in properly, water will leak from the bottom of the toilet.

It is adviseable to do so. The seal is pressed into shape after the toilet is installed, if the seal is reused it may not seal because the seal has already been compressed.

AnswerCheck the crank pully bolt. If it has come loose you will have a leak.The crank pully bolt does not have anything to do with the crank shaft seal leak. Thebolt is independent of the seal. To replace seal remove crank shaft pully and you will have access to crank shaft seal, pull out & replace seal.

Transmission fluid leak can be caused by couple of things. Most common being an worn out or broken seal. The transmission seals on most cars are made from rubber or metal. Seal is exposed to extreme temperature for years and the parts moving around them will eventually cause seals to fail resulting fluid leak. Faulty installation of a seal can also cause a leak. The another thing that can cause a leak is, if transmission case or pan is damaged due to low ground clearance.

It can leak from the front seal, or the cooling lines that run to the radiator. Or it could leak from a cracked case.

Wax ring is leaking. Wasn't thick enough to begin with, bolts were not tightened down enough, bolts broke or rusted off, flange the bolts hook into broke, floor rotted from another leak and let the toilet rock and break the seal on the wax ring. Could be any one of these or two combined.

User Avatar

If the toilet is sitting solid on the floor, you don't need to. I would use latex instead of silicone because if you should ever have to pull the toilet, it would be much easier. One reason not to seal it down would be if the wax ring should ever fail. You could have a lot of damage to the floor before you noticed the leak.

Could be heater core leaking Could be a bad windshield seal Could be a bad door seal
