High pressure in the crankcase is usually the cause of the crank seal leaking significantly.

For now though we’ll assume that vacuum pulls on the actuator diaphragm.

Thank you for asking about your Kia Rio. Based on your description, we recommend using the BlueDevil Oil Stop Leak, found here on our website: http://store.gobdp.com/oil-stop-leak-49499/ . You can expect to see results after about 100-200 miles of driving.

Bri19874 months ago

You have to remember that the actual force is provided by atmospheric pressure- the vacuum circuit removes the air from one side of the diaphragm or piston of the actuator and atmospheric pressure pushes the other side, therefore there is a limit to the force that can be applied (about 14 pounds per square inch of diaphragm / piston area)

Oil Leak from Head Gasket [AX/Saxo/ZX/106/306 1.0 to 1.6 TU engine]

Red4 months ago

When the crank seal goes, the oil will collect at the lowest point between the sump and the gearbox bellhousing, then tends to run along to the driveshaft and gets spread around everywhere by that, so it's hard to tell where it's coming from. Trouble is that if it's leaking elsewhere it will also collect at the lowest point between the sump and the bellhousing ;-(

Thank you for asking about your Chevy K1500. The BlueDevil Oil Stop leak would treat a leaking crankshaft seal. As long as you are not losing oil too quickly, you would be a good candidate for the product. Typically, you should expect to see results after around 100-200 miles of driving.

The pneumatic system as employed by PSA on these vehicles is sadly fraught with problems. Having forked out for airsprings three times at the dealer's in 5 years and then being presented with a bill to replace the compressor was just the final straw for one of our spring conversion customers. As of late July 2013 we still have no idea how PSA are going to address this situation, which is a little disappointing this is an opportunity to shine, not hide behind a rock and hope it goes away.

There is much talk about this problem. No doubt you have already trawled the net for a glimmer of hope - like many others, to little avail.

Some of the petrol models suffer a vibration or rough idle. This can commonly be sorted by replacing the stepper motor (also referred to as an idle speed motor, idle valve or motor) It might be worth trying to remove the unit and cleaning the solenoid. The fault usually returns after a while so the best cure is to just whang in a new 'un.

Fiat used to have a rep for substandard cars, but the Grande Punto was the start of a much improved car and a much improved company.If we are getting into the ridiculous acronyms banded around then you can say the same for most marques..... Fix Or Repair Daily? It's all bollocks OP.

Unfortunately, our product is not designed to work for the type of leak you are experiencing. BlueDevil Oil Stop Leak is specifically designed to work for leaking rubber seals/gaskets such as oil pan gaskets, rear main seals, valve cover gaskets, etc.

Fiat Barchetta crankshaft oil seal fault

If yours falls into the above catagory then I'm afraid it will almost certainly need a new clutch cover plate and bearing.

Red4 months ago

For vehicle with a HYDRAULIC clutchCheck that the master cylinder (nearest the pedal) is operating correctly, not leaking and that you have fluid in the reservoir!Also check that the slave cylinder (on the clutch bellhousing) is operating ok. No bent rods, leaks etc.

Corrie19994 months ago

Very common fault. Get your 'pencil' coils checked. The 16 valve versions use a long thin ignition coil (one per cylinder) that takes the place of the conventional ignition leads. They are sadly VERY prone to breaking down. A faulty coil, apart from making the car a pig to drive may cause catalytic converter damage, as unburny fuel will find its way to the cat and eventually kill the poor thing.

Take the hose off between the airfilter and the throttle body, and see how dirty the throttle body looks. If theres excess pressure in the crankcase then you will get a lot of oily mess on the back of the butterfly.
