comment How to test for radiator leaks?
what seals the spark plug holes when the spark plugs are taken out ? is there a gasket between the sockets and cylinder heads? if those are leaking, does that mean the cylinder has a leak ?

comment Causes for engine/oil gunk around bottom of engine bay
but if the oil leak just goes down, it couldn't possibly be the oil pan gasket because it is in the very bottom of the engine block, below the affected areas

but if it is spraying, the relative position is really not that indicative, no ?

comment How to bleed Toyota Tacoma clutch system?
thanks but how can you be pumping the clutch while keeping it depressed at the same time? a pumping motion consists of depressing and releasing. that's what's confusing

comment How to bleed Toyota Tacoma clutch system?
also, do you suggest using a hand held pump like in the picture just for prime bleeding the cylinder or to bleed the valve on the slave cylinder ?

comment How to bleed Toyota Tacoma clutch system?
another question: Pump the clutch to build up pressure (keep clutch depressed). if i keep the clutch pedal depressed, it is not pumping. do you mean pump it with the vacuum pump like in the picture?

comment How to bleed Toyota Tacoma clutch system?
also, i don't understand this part: Open the nipple/valve on the master cylinder. It is a clutch master cylinder and it only has an intake valve (white plastic in the picture) and a line valve (the one on the left but not one of the two holes in the bottom, which are screw holes for fastening the cylinder). If i disconnect the hose that goes into the intake valve, there won't be brake fluid coming in. the line valve is not opened/closed, it is a female threaded socket for the line that goes to the slave cylinder. so which applies in my case ?

comment How to bleed Toyota Tacoma clutch system?
thanks for the great answer. BTW, is it possible to do it without the pump, which i don't currently have and neither do the auto part stores around where i live ? i may have to order one but i would like my truck back sooner than it arrives. e.g. is it possible to gravity bleed it ?

comment How much air should a tire lose each month?
also, what is the recent temperature change is a factor, as described by Boyle's laws. If the temperature drops significantly, the tire air pressure will drop and vice versa. also (as i am a whitewater enthusiast), people rafting rivers who put on early in the morning will slightly underinflate their rafts knowing that the mid day sun will kick the pressure to be just right

comment What is the cause of a soft brake pedal after bleeding?
you might have a brake fluid leak somewhere, are you sure you tightened all the brake line nuts?

Open the nipple/valve on the master cylinder, do you mean the brake fluid tank into which you pour brake fluid?
