The car is leaking water right underthe driver side and by the firewall when the heater is on. I removed part of the heat shield and found the end of a hose that the water was coming from. The hose was not attached to anything, but went up and attached to a fitting. The hose was about 6 to 8 in long. Is this a drain hose of some sort, or part of the heater core hoses

I have a pontiac sunfire(1999). All of a sudden the coolant leaked out and the car over-heated. When I looked at it a hose which is attached up by the coolant cap was not attached to anything (not sure if that is the way it is suppose to be). The hose to the engine and the rad are secure. I opened the cap and nearly all the coolant is gone. Should I buy more coolant and fill it up? Why would this do this?

Water leaking I noticed a puddle of water underneath my Neon (pretty near the front right tire). After opening the engine hood I was able to find the hose that was leaking. Well, it's not a simple crack or hole in the hose, but the hose seems to be "open ended". I don't know much about cars, but i figure that the open hose is either entirely cut or it is supposed to be attached to some part of the engine/cooling system. Is there any website where I could find pictures that would tell me, where

There are 2 hoses attached to a block that leads into the engine, the block has come unattached or is supposed to be attached, i cannot find any screws that would attach it, should this item be attached? it seems like it may be something that deals with the coolant, but i'm not sure

I just bought a 2005 Grand Prix. There is a key fob for a remote starter. The sales person told me that it was probably de-activated. However, I found some sort of remote starter "hook-up" thing in the glove box. It looks like it is supposed to attach to something. The end of it looks sort of like a usb end. I'm wondering if I can just plug this back up & the remote starter will work...but I don't know where to plug it. The key fob has a FCC# NAHAS2402 and a web address of www.autostart.ca. I w

I have a 1995 Nissan Maxima that I found one end of a vacuum line disconnected from somewhere. I can't find where it is supposed to be connected to! I looked all over with a flashlight and can't find anything. The other end is hooked to the top of the transmission. Looks sort of like it might be a vacuum line for some kind of solenoid on the tranny. Anyone out there know where this hose should be connected to? Thanks in advance.

I just bought a 1994 GMC Suburban and the front end seems to float. I was underneath it today when changing the oil and I noticed that on each side there is an arm that is attached to the frame curves up and then straightens out with a bolt hole on the end. I think it is the steering stabilizer arms? There is nothing attached to either of them? What is supposed to be attached to these horn looking things?

Heater hose The heater hose that goes to the engine needed replacing due to a leak at the connection at the engine end. I removed the clamp from the heater coil end but when I inspected the other end (withe the metal tubing)and where it connects to the engine something felt loose when I moved it it broke off at the engine.

I had to rebuild the head. My problem now is that I can't identify all the hoses, or where they all belong. I need to know where the breather hose is suppose to go, a hose that is like the breather hose but longer, what hoses go on the vacuum hose connection, and there's a hose with a metal pipe on the end of it that I remember, but not it's purpose or where it belongs.
