    Posted: 03 Jan 2016 at 9:30am
Happy New Year everyone!

My 2005 Magentis has developed a small leak in the oil sump pan. Finding another is proving to be difficult. I saw elsewhere that the pan from a Hyundai Sonata from the same year will fit. Can anyone clarify this?

Secondly, my fuel tank has developed a leak. As it's metal it appears that some corrosion has set in. It isn't a problem when I put £20 of fuel in but when I fill it there is a leak somewhere. My mechanic said it must either be high up in the tank or perhaps the extra weight of a full tank is forcing it out through the bottom. It isn't gushing out but I do notice fuel on the ground in wet weather and there is a petrol smell until the tank gets below half full. He also reckons that removing it for a repair could prove tricky due to corrosion on the straps that hold it in. So my question is this...is there any such thing as a metal sealant that can be applied to the whole tank in situ?

Many thanks

There used to be a Holts product called (I think) "coldweld" or something like that. I used it on my old Austin 7 Nippy fuel tank when it developed a crack just above a mounting bracket. It worked then, so that I could put 5 gallons of juice in instead of the 2 gallons previously. Like yours it weeped if I put more in.

Thanks Dave
I wish there was a 'paint' of some sort that I could paint over the outside to seal the darned thing!!
