Having problems with your Dodge Ram 350 ?

My #5 injector was loose the other day so i tightened it and it still has a slow leak coming out through the threads

Answers :

Loosen it back off and make sure the fuel line is properly seated in the injector, then retighten the nut. If it still leaks then chances are that the end of the line has been damaged and it will need to be replaced. Don't put that off because a couple months down the road the engine will go BOOM. The fuel helps to lubricate the cylinder. I bought a new motor ($4500) because I didn't replace a leaky line soon enough. Hope this helps.

1995 Honda Accord, 4 cylinder, overheating issues. Only overheats when in stop and go or slow traffic. No obviously leaks from the radiator. It's also brand new.

When i pour in coolant into the tank in a bout a day or two it goes way below the minimum.

My 89 Cutlass Ciera with a 3300 engine is leaking coolant. I replaced the water pump as that looked like where the leak was was coming from. It still leaks and I can see a slow drip from the bottom of the water pump but cannot tell if it is coming from somewhere else. What else could it probably be?


It may be the gasket where the thermostat is. Or even a pin hole in the hose above the pump. Hope this gives you a few more ideas. \015\012\015\012best of luck ... 1989 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera
