Having problems with your 1999 Oldsmobile Intrigue ?

Hello regikandadam: The coolant recovery tank sprang a leak, the small inlet hose connector broke off, so we replaced the tank and refilled it. The Haynes manual had bleed instructions for 3.8 but no info on 3.5. Just want to make sure there are no air pockets to worry about. Thanks for your help! Mike

Fuel not getting to top of the motor the pump in tank was replaced and im still not getting fuel to the rail up top i personally did not change it so i am not sure if it was done correctly and wanted to ask so that i can get other ideas before i go tearing apart the gas tank , i checked the fuses and checked to make sure i was gettin a spark when i turned ti over , so my question is , is there a in line fuse and what else should i look at before i dive into that tank to check the pump.


The next thing if the pump is new!!!, would be to check the ignition control module if that goes bad theres no fuel , also make sure pump has power to it if theres power and the ground is good then the new pump is defective.hope this helps. ... 1989 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera

Have 134a refrigerant and shop where I bought it said owners manual will have the how to instructions. Unfortunately it doesn't. I see on the line there is a stem to screw the hose into but want to make sure there is no other stem where the refrigerant should be added


No,you won't find it in the owner's manual. It charges through the low pressure side,which is the larger of the 2 available ports. You can't hook it up wrong. I suggest you buy a Hayne's manual for the truck. It has 90% of any answer you might need. ... 2001 Dodge Durango

I have a 2001 ford Taurus and it has started blowing anti-freeze out of the reservoir tank. I have replaced the water pump and thermostat, but the problem still exists. I have also checked to make sure the hoses are not collapsing and checked the radiator to make sure it was not plugged. While rotating the engine (with fuse pulled for the fuel injection) I am feeling pressure against the palm of my hand build up in the reservoir tank. Could this be an issue with a head gasket?.

I have a 1989 Ford Festiva and I am curious the best way to get inside the steering column. My horn is not working and I have knocked out every other reason that it might not be. The fuse is in tact, so I know for sure it isn't that (everything else associated with that fuse works fine). I am assuming it is an electrical issue and want to check to make sure everything is connected. This morning I went to check to make sure it truly wasn't working and it wasn't just my imagination.

Recharging AC I got a charge kit at the store but I'm not sure where to charge it there are two valves one on a hose and the other one on a tank. The adapter fits the one on the tank but not the one on the hose. From the instructions it sounds like I need to fill at he hose and not on the tank but I am not sure. The problem being the adapter doesn't fit the valve on the hose..


The one at tank next to larger hose is low side. If you do not overcharge (or get air into your system) that is all you need. The smaller hose is high side. ... 1997 GMC Jimmy

2002 Chevy impala overheating. Replaced radiator, water pump (thermostat is working properly). Not sure if radiator was bleed out correctly. Car is still overheating and fluid leaking out the bottom left of engine area. How do you make sure radiator is bleed out properly?


If your radiator is clean inside and you water flows and circulates with the radiator cap then it is OK. The leak is probably coming from the intake area or the head gasket. You could try some BARS leak that you can get at your auto parts store and s ... Chevrolet Impala

I have a power steering fluid leak. I replaced the return line and the clamps. After re-filling the fluid the steering was fine for a minute and then began to get stiff again and make noise when the wheel was turned. I looked under the car and all of the power steering fluid was on the ground. I am pretty sure that it is coming from the line that connects just below the return line. I think that is the high pressure line but i wanted to make sure before i ordered it. It looks different at Advanc

I had an EGR valve sticking and replaced it after it read up on a computer reading! the truck runs fine but it had sat for 2 1/2 years before i bought it. has dual tanks and the front tank has gas in it from sitting the whole time. rear tank is the one i use. But.... when i drive it shakes real bad, like its missing with overdrive off, and also when i take off from a light. it also makes the sound from the motor that it's not getting gas and wants to die when i take off. check engine light

Where is the fuel pump located on a 1973 Citroen SM with a Maserati 3.0 L V6 engine with Weber 42 DCNF carburettors (180 bhp). I looked at the fuel tank and did not see any wires going to the fuel tank inlet area where the fuel is supposed to exit the tank to the carbs. Just a tube coming out to the carbs. I'm taking a logical guess that it has a mechanical pump. Similar to the GM that mounts on the engine. Could you please let me know. As for the info this web site asks me for make and model ve
