One of the water nozzles used to spry water to windshield, (the ones in the hood) get broken from a kind of pipe where the little hose fits, does somebody know how to remove this nozzle? I'm not geting the car to the dealer just to change this...! Thanks in advance
It is held in from under the bonnet with two parts of the nossle wider than the hole in the bonnet. Squeeze them in with plyer's and push the nozzle up through the bonnet. The new one will just push in with your hand. Cheer's ... 2002 Jaguar X-Type
I need to replace the o-ring that prevents power steering fluid from escaping from the power steering pressure hose of a 2003 ford windstar. When you change the power steering pump, as you take the hose out from the old pump a new o-ring must be installed because the old one will not be useful again. I'm trying to buy the o-ring but i no one knows where or how to get it. This o-ring goes into the power steering pressure hose, which goes into the power steering pump.

2003 Mazda Tribute DX 4 cylinder. Power steering hose that is about ¾’ in diameter that runs from the reservoir tank (where you add the fluid) to the power steering pump. Every thing I look at online has pressure fittings on the ends. On my truck there are no pressure fittings on this hose just spring clamps on each end. Trying to find out where I can get this hose or a part number. The hose is the original not a replacement.
You can get a hose at the parts store. This is a nonpressure line and you can use hose that is rated for transmission fluid.\012Randy ... 2003 Mazda Tribute
My car has power steering fluid squirting from a fitting with one hose going to the power steering pump and the same fitting has a nipple with nothing on it. I think there should be a hose attached to it but I can't find it. The fitting is located just about where the firewall is, but under the car of course.
There might have been a plug there that fell out.. Plug it with something and drive the car..If it gets really hard then there was a hose there.. More than likely back to the fluid resouivour.. ... Dodge Intrepid
Our 01 Grand Caravan Sport (3.3L) is having issues... the power steering hose keeps blowing >.< it is the return line, not the pressure line. I have replaced it with every kind of hose I can buy because all of the dealers in my state (also the shops) are out of this part and don't know if they'll get it in ever or not... either way every time we get the hose on it blows within an hour or so after we start to drive it again. Not having power steering sucks in itself but I dont want to keep drivin

I am trying to replace my water pump on a 96 mercury mystique. the hose that connects the radiator to the water pump is hidden behind the power steering pump, and the a/c unit, making it seemingly impossible to remove the hose from the pump(to pull the old pump out). Do I need to remove the power steering pump or a/c unit to get at the hose to remove the water pump? if so how would I go about removing ether, i have only spotted one bolt I can get at.
The a/c and p/s pumps have 2 bolts.One is a long bolt that runs throught the body of the pump and that is used as a pivot point to adjust the belt tensions.The other may be on a smaller bracket that locks the pump in place.Or it will have the second ... 1996 Mercury Mystique

I have a 96 cavalier 2.2l one day I get n it and its lost all kinds of power and had a slight miss. I thought I was runin outta gas because it was on empty after putting gas n it tho it cont. to do it. I changed plugs and the wires r good so it aint that. Its getting noticably less gas mileage. im thinking it could b the converter,timing chain, or bad gas but im not sure. A few days later after cutting a slice n the converter the miss in the engine went away and seems to have a lil of its power

2003 Ford F150 super crew OBD2 port not communicating with scan tool. Tried Autozones, advanced auto parts, and my Bluepoint scan tools. All do the same thing. Says to turn on ignition and press power. I've done every combo of key on/off power on/off, and nothing. I've checked all the fuses and ground wire in back of radio. I do believe the port is getting some kind of power because if I have my scan tool plugged in to the OBD2 port, when I turn the ignition to run it powers up the scan tool, ye

I am trying to replace a fuel filter on a 1997 Ford F-150. Sounds easy enough but it seems that one of the fuel lines that leads from the filter to the engine just will not come off the filter to allow removal. I cannot find a tool small enough to fit the quick connect hose tip. Also have taken truck to two different repair sites and have been told ''We're sorry but we cannot get the hose seperated''. Both also say that the hose in question does not look identical to the hose that comes from the
I did that last night. The plastic tools didn't work for me. Cut the filter off as close to the body as you can(dont make any sparks), then you can move the fuel line to a point that you can see what you are doing. If you look inside the connector ... 1997 Ford F150 Regular Cab

Is your taurus already equipped to handle the new type of refrigerant (it's called R134a)? If it is not then you need to buy a conversion nipple which will fit over the existing fitting on the vehicle. This is most likely the issue. ... 1999 Ford Taurus
Hi, I have an AUDI A8, 1998 model in beautiful condition. It has the 2.5 TDi engine. I have two problems. First of all at between 1,500 and 2,000 rpm the engine starts to "search" with power rising and dropping but the rev. counter seems to remain constant. The second problem is an intermittent one and has occurred both before and after having new front brake pads fitted. I get the ABS light and the one two below it (Triangle with an arrow circling it)both come on. This does not affect the braki

The A/C compressor on my 1998 Regal has to be replaced. I have purchased a new one and on reviewing the installation I see that there is a cylindrical device on a solid aluminium tube fitted into the back of the existing compressor. On the other side of this item a hose runs to the condenser. What is this item and what kind of a fitting is used to mount it?

Hi!!\015\012\015\012I am assuming that the hose that came off is the top radiator hose. Due to the loss of coolant, your motor overheated and lost power, when this happens, it makes a rattling noise, that may have been the noise you heard ... Toyota RAV4

Power Steering Pumps (mine is a 1996 Camry 2.2 4 cylinder) are notorious for leaking fluid out of their o-ringed return line one bolt connection!! First of all - it is almost IMPOSSIBLE to access the pump -- I remove my front CV axle to gain clearance to get to this frickin' pump. I've had it out - replaced the o-ting with new TOYOTA ring - now it leaks worse than ever!! Any thoughts on maybe a slightly thicker ring? The ones I had to select from at auto parts stores are just too fat!! Won't fit
If the factory correct o-ring is not sealing there has to be a problem with either the mating surface on the pump or the line. Can you be certain that the line is installed correctly, it's flush to the back of the pump? Maybe there's a small crack in ... Toyota Camry

My Suburban will not start, it cranks, but will not start. I recently had my fuel pump replaced, but the person who fixed it put the fuel filter on backwards and didn't connect my hoses back. so we end up driving it, not knowing the situation and the truck starts to choke and eventually wouldn't cut back on. I was told that the fuel pump shorted out because of this and got another one. it gets put on correctly this time, but it isn't getting any power to it. the truck will only start when they p
