I have a 99 Cadillac Deville and it has a vacuum hose that is leaking. I know this because I can hear it. It sounds like a clicking noise. I know I have to replace the hose, but first I need to find it. There are several of these little black hoses and they are all jammed in the back passenger side under the hood. It is hard to get at them. I would like to know a quick, easy way to locate and replace this faulty hose.

I have a 2003 Hyundai Tiburon and sometimes not all the time its hard to put it in gear! sometimes i have to press the clutch twice just to get it on gear.. sometime when its in gear its gets very difficult to get it back in Neutral and sometimes it makes a screeching noise...... please help


Usually when you have problems changing gears, there is a problem with the clutch not disengaging completely. If it is cable actuated, the cable just needs to be adjusted. If it is a hydraulically actuated clutch, I would first suspect a leaky slav ... 2003 Hyundai Tiburon

I have a 1995 ford contour, and it is leaking water from the upper part of the hose where it goes into the dash board. Is there a way that I can wrap the hose with a type of sealant tape to fix the hole? I noticed that the fuel injection mechanism sits on top near the part of the hose, I need to get to. Will this be easy to repair or difficult? JC.

Rear brakes way too hot. replaced the pads and very difficult to turn in, in fact had to releive pressure at the hose to get it to go in at all. Is it possible that the master is at fault?

Hi there. I have a 1997 Jeep Wrangler TJ Automatic (Hard Top.) Yesterday after being in the snow the transmission started to act up on the way home. It was holding gears to long sometimes and it even took off in second a couple of times I'm sure of it. Today whilst driving quite slowly it started to make a light grinding sort of sound in 2wd and then went neutral. This is what it does now and the only way to get it to drive in any gear is to turn the ignition off and restart the engine. I have t

06 Equinox brake problems. My wifes front rotor beat really hard whenever she brakes. I know i need to get them turned but i have to do this every three months. I think this is b/c the back drums need adjusting. My question is, is there a way to adjust them without taking the wheels off. Example my truck is a 97 1500 and all you do is pull up on the parking brake release and pump the parking brake a few times. Example #2 on 95 1500's whenever you back up the drum brakes automatically adjust.


You can turn a rotor once or twice but each time you do, you are removing metal...The rotors today are really not thick enough to put up with too much of that before they are too thin to be useful. In removing metal they will not dissipate heat well ... 2006 Chevrolet Equinox

Ok. Im going to try and explain this the best way I can. Today I turned my truck on, and when I did it started to idle bad. Like rumm rumm rumm.

I almost rear ended a brand new m6 lol. Ok after all that b.s happened I went to the mechanic shop he told me that maybe my brake booster hose might have been lose. I checked it and yea it was.


The yacuum booster control unit runs on engine vacuum So this means you had a major vacuum leak and that would explain why the engine wasn;t running right on idle and the brake problem as well just make sure the vac. hose to the booster control ti go ... 1996 GMC Sonoma

I have a 99 grand cherokee unlimited v8. I serviced my differentials and did some fwd and rev tight figure 8's afterward to make sure gears were lubricated. After about 5 or six of these the steering got real stiff to the left but not the right, and has been that way since. It is real hard to turn left but sometimes it acts like it gives gets easy until the next time you turn left. Is this the steering gearbox or the rack and pinion. Does it even have a rack and pinion?


Your vehicle has a steering box and from what it seems, there is an internal pressure issue. the other senario is your 4x4 is trying to kick in creating resistance in the steerig. this cause is not an easy fix and will involve the transfer case assem ... Jeep Grand Cherokee

I have a 1998 Peugeot 206 (not a 405) with a sunroof. The sunroof doesn't close all the way, resulting in wind noise when travelling > 40mpg. If I hold the close button after the roof has closed it makes a continual clicking noise, but never closes that last bit. Sometimes it fails to open completely as well. Closing it and causing it to click a few times resolves this. Any ideas? Do I need a new roof or is there simply something I can adjust to get the roof working properly? Ch

2001 ford winstar top radiator hose stays cold, even close to the thermostat area i can hold on to the housing after the car has ran for 30 minutes, heater blows luke warm to warm at times, but not consistant. I have done the following, installed new thermostat, flushed coolant, new coolant mix added, blew out heater core. Need to get this solved, so I can make my wife a happier gal.. Thanks


Check the heater hoses for warmth at the heater core. Some designs do not use a waterflow valve, but instead always have heater core flow and use the air flaps to regulate heat.Now there is a difference in some thermostats and the housings. ... Ford Windstar

Where are the timing marks and how do u time a 1998 Pontiac Sunfire gt? I was told there are two 14mm holes for the two upper gears and a mark for the lowers. I had a hard time getting them to line up but finally got it. The only problem is that I don't have the 14mm tool for the gears. The block holes seem slightly smaller then the gears that is y I don't know if this is correct way. If I try to line it up any other way the holes are way off. By eye, the holes are as close as they'll get. Plz h

I have a 1996 Dodge Caravan. It was running ok but while driving it seemed like someone shut the gas off & it came to a slow stop. This has happened 3 times now and each time I can get it to start a couple days later. I think it may be a fuel filter but im not a mechanic. It has been run out gas recently which makes me think this may be the case. I understand the fuel filter is on top of the fuel tank. Is their a way to get to it without dropping the tank? Is their a way to check to see if it is
