HOW TO DO AN ADVANCED SEARCH.

Mon Jul 08, 2013 3:56 pm by Admin


For the benefit of 944Hybrids users there are two search functions available for you to use.
The purpose of this sticky is to explain the "Advanced Search" function because it is much more powerful and is the best choice when researching information.

When you log on to the site a list of options is shown in a line at the top of the page. One option is labelled "Search", use this option (NOT the search box lower down on the right).

LT1 Oil leak.

LT1 Oil leak.

Post  kelleysj on Thu Jan 20, 2011 8:39 pm

Today i put the oil filter mount on with filter and began filling the engine with oil. I used 5 quarts of oil then i noticed oil pouring from the timing belt face plate the 2nd hole. I do have the water pump removed but wasnt sure if that could be it. Xschop thought maybe but was unsure. Here is a crappy pic just for reference.

Did you replace the plugs above the camshaft and the round ball bearing that goes in the hole under the main cap when you put the engine back together? What year LT1 is this?

I didnt put the engine together it was supposed to be a reman. Its an 1996 LT1 not real educated on the engine yet. I guess i will have to pull the plate off and get a good look. Has anyone ever ran into this?

Why are you putting oil in it? If you don't have it fully assembled and in the car there really is no reason for it right now, You don't have to remove the cover to install or replace the seals, unless it is the front oil pan seal needing replaced.

IIRC, doesn't the WP shaft complete the seal on the LT's?

I just wanted to get some oil in the engine to keep it lubed up I was worried that it could rust in the damp shop i have it in. Im just curious if anyone knows what this is and what needs replaced.

Before you put anything back together make 110% all the parts are there. There is also a waterpump inner splined COUPLER that drives the WP off the cam. Find a good schematic and confirm everything.

Thats the hole the opti goes in. The optispark unit completes the seal. Until you plug that in you have a huge hole for oil to pour out.
