When replacing the oil pump on a 97 Buick 3800 supercharged engine what gaskets and seals are needed?
Oil pan gasket and pump gasket. Be sure and clean the oil pan out throughly and clean the strainer. If you find the oil pan bolt holes are protruding inward, then with a small hammer, make sure to flatten then out to ensure a good seal. Tighten all bolts to OEM factory specifications, to avoid leaks.
The removal of a head gasket from a 2005 Nissan Altima is a time consuming process and should be done by qualified and experienced mechanics. It will involve removing the valve covers, heads, and other accessories. In addition to a set of head gaskets, gaskets for the intake manifold and valve covers will be needed. A coolant flush and refill will also be required to complete this job.
Pistons & Rings, bearings-rod/main/cam, gaskets/seals , timing chain, cam/lifters/springs, thermostat, water pump., Resizing connecting rods(would recommend just replacing), new rod bolt/screws if reusing old rods, Oil pump. (Recommend)Replacement/rebuilt distributor if equipped. Check/replace freeze out plugs if needed.
I'm no mechanic, but from what I've read in my Hayne's Repair Manual, a complete engine overhaul involves replacing piston rings, reboring or honning cylinder walls, replacing pistons (if the cylinders are rebored), replacing main and connecting rod bearings, regriding the crankshaft to restore the journals (if needed), and restoring the valves. Rebuilding parts like the starter, distributor, carburetor and alternator while the engine is being overhauled is common to ensure that the entire runs…
By replacing parts as needed depending on the type and brand of faucet It's possible that the gasket needs to be replaced, which is quite easy to do. Turn off the water source (under the sink) before you begin, though. Then remove the faucet handles and replace the gaskets. You can remove the faucet handles to see what size and type of gaskets you need first, or you can purchase a packet of assorted size…
How do you adjust the gear shift on a daewoo espero it wont select reverse after the rear engine mount broke and i have already replaced both engine mounts?
You replace the rear engine mount. By not replacing it, you are putting more stress on the other engine mounts and making them more likely to break. When They have broken, your engine falls and you lose it while you are driving down the highway and you wreck your car. An engine mount is easy to replace. that will restore the clearance needed for your gear shift to get back into reverse.
Depending on what type of engine is on it, it could just be an adjustment or it may need a new jet, small engine dealers are prohibited from selling the tools needed to adjust the carb. If its removing and replacing the jet you can order the jet and remove and replace it yourself, if you intend to run it at lower altitudes keep the original jet as you will need to replace it to…
The radiator fan turns off on your 1999 Maxima causing the engine temperature to get hot Is it the thermostat If so what are the directions to replace?
only if the engine is on its last legs , try removing the valve and see what happens . to be safe have a mate holding the key so you can switch off straght away if any problems . dont run engine for over 15 seconds with no valve as if engine is on last legs then it may!, pump oil out and destroy what you have left!!!
I have 2000 Chevy Suburban with check engine light on. Part store says it is knock sensor. What should I be concerned about?
Is it possible to replace a single broken rod in a 1996 Ford Taurus or is a whole new engine needed?
You can replace it if there is no block damage. Likely though there will be more than just a broken rod. When the rod broke, it slammed around in there and probably busted, or at least heavily damaged a cylinder wall. The crankshaft was probably also damaged. The crankshaft can be replaced wthout replacing the engine, but if there is damge to a cylinder wall, forget it, it's new engine time.
i too have a 73 super beetle and i needed a new fuel pump also. the way i did it was to simply take off and plug the fuel lines with a pencil or something and pay attention to where the hoses were on the pump. then remove the two bolts and pull the fuel pump out. pay close attention to the gaskets. i believe that there should be one between the pump and the…
99 GMC Suburban 4x4 w 350 - you have a small antifreeze leak behind the left exhaust manifold looking from the front you can not see well enough to tell where it might be coming from Any ideas?
Do you mean in its entire lifetime? My 87 Cabriolet has gone 210,000 miles without a major engine overhaul and still has its original transmission. I do take very good care of my vehicles but changing the oil every 3000 miles, replacing fluids, checking for worn parts and replacing them where needed. I have no doubt that it can go another 100,000 miles without the need to completely overhaul the engine. Take care of your…
More information is needed. The year make and model of the car. also the current engine size. usually when replacing with a different motor but same size, things such as intake / exhaust manifolds, alternators / power steering pumps etc may have to be changed. In some cases, flywheels, and some larger components may have to be changed.
Depending on how many cylinders the engine has determines how much oil the crankcase holds. The more cylinders the more oil is needed. Usually there are between 4 and 5 quarts needed for an engine of this size. DO NOT overfill. Add 4 quarts and check the engines oil while the engine is warm. Add if needed.
The fan only runs when needed to help cool the engine. The engine coolant sensor or a separate engine temperature switch is used to monitor engine temperature. Extra cooling is not needed when an engine is first started, so the fan does not come on until that engine reaches normal operating temperature which is usually from 195 to 215Â°F. The fan will then cycle on and off as needed to maintain the coolant temperature. So…
I have a rover metro and have had problems with overheating for ages. first i thought it was loose pipes making me loose water but this wasnt the case. i thought it might be an idea to remove the thermostat to stop overheating but it had already been done so that wasnt it either. i thought maybe the fan wasnt kicking in so it wouldn't cool down the engine but there was also nothing wrong…
I've actually had the headache of this issue come about earlier this year after spending quite a few dollars on parts that didn't need replacing. I finally had my car taken to a shop that I trust and all it was, was the relay switch in the black power box in the engine that needed replacing. Cost me $8 for the switch and $75 for labor. Hadn't had problems starting since.
Where can you find the fuse in a 96 ranger that operates the 4wd switch it won't enguage manual light 4wd low4wd blinking?
The Silverado name has been used both for a trim package for the C/K pickups and as a standalone model. Several transmissions were available during this time, as were engine options. We'd need much more info about your vehicle, including the model year and WHICH V8 engine it has - if you end up mating a 4L60E to a 454, you'll be replacing another transmission.
