Re: MMO vs Seafoam

I drive pretty mellow myself; believe my old engine appreciates it. I was just curious, I might add some to the gas tank when I finally do my piston soak, and add some to the crankcase before my oil...

Re: Leaking transmission fluid

I wonder if these self-tapping ones for oil drain pan are the same size? Anyone? I don't mind spending some money by any means. I just want it to be safe to drive again. And it is my daily driver...

Re: Leaking transmission fluid

Re: Leaking transmission fluid

It actually looked like it had a sort of built in washer on the drain bolt. Maybe they all look like that. Washer shaped head below the actual bolt size. Would a little washer on the outside make...

Re: Leaking transmission fluid

Dealer says replacement drain plug/washer doesn't exist maybe due to it being reusable, maybe to age. Says I likely stripped the hole and will need it tapped and a different plug altogether.

Re: Leaking transmission fluid

If it is just leaking from the plug bolt, which is still held in tight but won't get that super snug tight since overtightening, would it be worth trying something simple like teflon tape on the...

Re: ODB! code question

Re: ODB! code question

Two days ago! I cleaned the EGR two days ago quickly then removed the pcm b fuse for over a minute, just to clarify. Right away I got the SES light again, and am getting code 32.
