Hi, I have a scanner cause engine light is on, shows vacuum leak large. tried new gas cap, cleaned filler tube where gas cap contacts, replaced a plastic tube from valve cover to air filter hose. tried to locate by using a propane torch gas with no difference in running, not sure how to check plastic tube to tank. got a vacuum gauge to check manifold. not sure where to put gauge to troubleshoot. any ideas? also service manuals seem non existent. thanks, Steve

Hi I keep having the same problem with my land rover discovery series I, for some reason a little piece of plastic inside the door handle keeps breaking I've already replaced it once and now its broken again this dosent allow me to lock the door with the key or even unlock it with key, I hate having to buy the whole handle just for that piece of plastic does anyone know where I could find that one piece of plastic?

I have a 2002 Ford Ranger 4.0L. Somehow, it keeps blowing the PCV hose. I have replaced it 3 times in the last 2 months. The last time, I replaced the entire hose system (both elbows and plastic tube) purchased from the dealer. A new PCV valve was not available at the time so had it blown out. What could cause the hose to keep blowing like this?


It could only be pressure from the crankcase which would mean you have excessive blowby from the combustion chamber getting past the piston rings.\015\012You should be able to feel this pressure when you disconnect the hose from the pcv valve. ... Ford Ranger

I have a 2001 dodge intrepid. It was leaking water really bad so i bought a water outlet or connector from the dealership and had a local mechanic fix it. He did not replaced the tubing, the one that hooks to the radiator hose (i guess that is where it goes) and the one that looks like it goes straight into the engine. All he did was replace the plastic housing because mine had a big piece missing from one that came off my car. that day my car ran fine on the way home. the next day, i drove it m
