    Gear oil in the wrong filler plug

    Got a reply from a Subaru technician, he made the same mistake back when the TR580 CVT first came out. The oil ends up on the CVT side. The solutions is to drain then refill with CVT fluid. Fortunately the vehicle has not been started so the gear oil has not circulated. So bp042665 you are...

    Gear oil in the wrong filler plug

    Pressure plugs? Well that makes a little sense. Let me see what type testing happens there, it might give a clue where the oil went. By the way when I first removed the plug it had a faint gear oil odor. It might be assocatd with the differential. Thank you for the response bp042665 this an...

    1999 F150 dragging brake caliper

    Re: 1999 F150 dragging brake caliper/Fixed I disassembled the caliper to check all the moving parts. One of the slide pins had a slight roughness as it was exercised in and out of its bore. Added a bit more lube helped but the roughness was not completely gone. The other pin was fine. Upon...

    1999 F150 dragging brake caliper

    Thanks billr, I loosen the upstream chassis fitting and it does relieve some of the dragging. Opening the wheel bleeder afterwards does not do much. There is still a little drag at this point when compared to the other wheel. Pushing on the brake pedal produces the dragging again. Think...

    1999 F150 dragging brake caliper

    I was able to replace the suspected defective brake hose this past Saturday. Went ahead and bled the brake system while I was at it. The truck stops smoothly and straight but I still have the slight drag on the passenger side wheel. Rotor temps are running about 20 degrees hotter on that...

    1999 F150 dragging brake caliper

    Well Thank you all, I did the suggested the test of spinning the wheel while opening the bleeder screw. The dragging went away. First, I am glad that the problem is probably the flexible hose, I intend on replacing it soon. What is disappointing is this hose has only been in service for 8...

    Billr, Thanks for the input. I'll drive this van a liiltle longer and keep my ear tuned in for valve train noise. Right now the engine is smooth & quiet, so if it isn't broken I'll leave it alone.

    2001 Sienna Crank Pulley Failure

    Thank you for your responses. It sounds like this is one of those things that is difficult to pinpoint. Danica's comment that "prying on the outer ring during removal" might be the best source of the problem and makes the most sense to me. I am the second owner of the vehicle so maybe at one...
