German term or phrase:Gummi aufquellen
Motor nicht reinigen oder entfetten. da unter dem Einfluß bestimmter Lösungsmittel Gummi aufquellen und dadurch das Leck vorübergehend verschlossen werden kann.
Is there a mistake in this sentence???
Do not clean or degrease the engine as under the effect of certain solvents, rubber swells and this can lead to the leak getting temporarily sealed.
