I have a "97 Town and Country Van. The air conditioner is not working. It blows hot air. I have had it tested 3 or 4 times for leaks, and the mechanics can not find the leak. They all said that it may be the evaporator coils. There is one in the front and one in the back. The dash board has to be removed to get to the front coil. I'm not sure how they will reach the rear. I asked if the mechanics if they could test the coils first to tell which one needs replacing. They all said it had to be tak

My 2004 f150 does not always work in 4 wheel drive but I replaced a vacuum line that goes to the front acuator on the front axel, then i replaced the right front hub assembly with a used one and the 4 wheel drive seemed to work fine,but the used hub was warped so i put the old one back on temporaraly and now the four wheel drive does'nt work. how does the hub affect that. need to know. mike m,
The IWE is operated by a common vacuum system. When you say does not work, not sure what you are getting at ( only 1 wheel locks into place, or neither ).Could be you had the vent and vacuum lines reversed, and this did not keep the IWE ... 2004 Ford F150
Continuation of 1998 Plymouth Breeze Stiff Steering Issue Well, we ended up replacing basically all of the front end of this 1998 Plymouth Breeze because it was totally worn out. We replaced the front motor mount, the rear motor mount, upper ball joints, front struts, both CV axles, both control arms (lower ball joints), the Rack & Pinion and Tie Rod ends We even replaced the water pump and timing belt because the water pump was leaking and since we had it open, we replaced the timing
First, the mechanic has no idea what that switch is most likely. I have several Rack and Pinions for dodge and Plymouth vehicles and none have any electrical on them however I have seen some that do and having looked at these I'm pretty sure it is a ... 1998 Plymouth Breeze
I got all 4 struts replaced within the past 2 weeks. My car now has a slow oil leak coming from the front driver's side of the car. Also, there is a metal on metal grinding sound coming from the front drivers side. Should the place that replaced the struts be responsible to fix these problems free of charge? I have never had a problem with oil leakage before this. It is a 2003 Nissan Altima
They might have damaged something while jacking it up... \015\012if you can prove they damaged the car then they have to rectify it. \015\012simple as that. \015\012\015\012Oil leak could be sump or gearbox - depending on where they put the jac ... 2003 Nissan Altima
I replaced my front brake router and brake pads today. when i bleed the front left brake, a line which im assuming is a brake line near the rear left tire burst and is leaking brake fluid. when u tried bleeding the right front brake the pedal is going right to the floor when i pump it up. and the pads arnt tighting up around the router and no fluid is coming out? would the leaking line at the back wheel be why its affecting the bleeding the front brake?
First, there is NO Pumping of the brake pedal\015\012involved in bleeding brakes\015\012\015\012I think your smart enough to know you\015\012need to replace both rear brake hoses,\015\012before you proceed with the bleed ... 1997 Chevrolet Cavalier

The compressor for the air ride in my 2003 navigator kicks on as it should when i start the truck and it airs up, but within minutes the air leaks right back out again from the front end. The back doesnt seem to have a problem. The compressor keeps trying to air it up but soon as it does, it leaks back out again. A friend told me he thinks its leaking from the t fitting in the front. Can I just replace the t fitting and if so, where can I get one? Do I have to purchase through dealer? Thanks for

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
I recently replaced my front abs sensors. The front right seal is leaking out the hub oil. I have bought genuine original seals, but the hole they go into is too tight, I have bent 3 trying to get them in, is there an easy way to do this. I only have one good one left. The hole for the sensor and seal has a lip on it and it is smaller in size than the seal. Any ideas?
Yep. The manual always says replace seals, gaskets, etc but heck sometimes it does not need to be done and only creates problems. I took mine out and cleaned them up or sanded the insert trying to get the abs light off but I did not replace the sea ... 1996 Land Rover Discovery

1999 Chevy Cavalier Trying to get this ready for my kid to go back to college. Recently replaced both front tires, brakes, drivers wheel bearing and exhaust leak. The car makes a lot of road noise while driving. I do not believe it is exhaust, if cruising say at 55 put it in neutral the noise remains the same. Engine RPM doe not effect the noise. While cruising a long right hand turn will quiet the tone to almost normal left hand turns remains the same. Both front struts probally need replacing
I have the same thing going on with my 2002 cavalier. I replaced wheel bearings with no luck. My tires also wore uneven toe. Going to try alignment. I'm sure it's the same problem as you describe and it's really annoying. Right hand turns remains the ... 1999 Chevrolet Cavalier
I have an F-350 Ford 2001...lost transmission after 4 years 80,000 miles...new one replaced at Ford Dealership at the cost of 4200.00. Now at 60,000 miles and almost four years, in two weeks,on this one...it has begun to leak at the front of the transmission. No problem with gears as of yet...but just noticed the leak. Do you have any suggestions?
Where is the leak? If its from the front of the pan just replace the gasket and refill the trans. If its coming from the front oil seal you must remove the transmission to replace the seal. Lucas makes a transmission sealer/conditioner that we have h ... Ford Ranger

Coolant leak I've recently had my alternator, belts, and water hose replaced related to two previous coolant leaks. A pressure test was performed to locate the reason for the leak. Now only 2 months later it is still leaking. After getting down and looking at the leak it seems to be coming from the drainage plug(?) right near the front underside of the vehicle. After draining all the coolant out and checking the struts on the plug it seemed to be fine. Then after making sure it was re-screwed ba

I have 2002 Camry Le 4 cy.I was told that I need replace front pipe assembly & gasket (flex-pipe leaking) they said it would coast around 900 just for the part because there is catalytic con. but they put brand new one 6 months ago,and it cost around 700$. Is there cheaper fix for the leak and how danger leak is for my engine,.
The broken flex pipe can easily be fixed with a generic flex pipe for less then $100.The catalytic converter is after that, so has nothing at all to do with it.But cracks can also brazed or welded to fix.However, the reason flex pip ... 1996 Toyota Camry
97 Chrysler Concorde high idle speed A 1997 Chrysler Concorde starts fine, but idles at 2000 rpm. The idle increases to 2500 as it warms up. Vacuum is at spec, and no signs of intake leak. We have replaced the coolant temp sensor (previous code), idle air control motor (previous code), one front O2 sensor, EGR valve and control, and MAP sensor (previous code). The previous owner had the PCM replaced with a used unit, with no luck. We have not yet replaced the intake air temp sensor,
Couple things to check out. what is the throttle position sensor readings fully closed (should be .5volts). if it's above the pcm may think the car is not at idle. did you spray sections of vacuum lines and manifold gaskets with brake clean to check ... Chrysler Concorde
