comment Brake fluid leak after recent brake line replacement
does the level in the brake fluid tank go down ? the tank is mounted on your brake fluid master cylinder, which is mounted on a drum-like component, which is mounted on the driver's side of your firewall inside the engine bay

comment Why don't thermostats have a sensor?
yes but it just shows as overheating and not overheating due to a specific reason that is one of the many possible. i don't see why the specificity is so hard to understand

there can be many reasons for overheating beyond the thermostat.

I'm not asking for thermostat to measure temperature, just to report to the ECU every time it opens and closes so that the ECU can raise an alert if no such signal has been reported some time

comment Cylinder Leak-down vs Compression Test
so, would you say that, if a compression test turns negative (the pressure remains constant), there is no point in performing a leak-down test because a leak-down test only finds which cylinder is leaking ? Another way to ask is, if a compression test is positive (there is a leak), could that leak be somewhere outside the cylinders so that, even though there is a leak, no cylinder leak down test turns positive ?

comment How to test timing chain/belt assemby before sealing engine closed?
so, @DucatiKiller, does your last comment mean that no harm can be done by cranking the crankshaft even when the timing gears and chains are not synced because there is no physical way for the valves to get in contact with the pistons ?

comment Cleaning blowby with Seafoam
What do you mean by parts cleaner? Like Brakleen ? Do you think there are any consequences to leaving scratches from using a wire brush inside cylinder heads or valve covers ?

but the evolution of the timing aparatus seems to be from a belt to a chain
