I've been told my AC Mode Actuator is bad. I'd like to replace it myself but I am having trouble getting to it. Can this be done without remove any of the dash, and what tool can reach the bolt/screws holding it in. Is there a trick to putting the new one in correctly; anything have to be lined up.

I have changed the o2 sensor and the tps that was acting up but I still get the code on longer trips. I have clean the throttle body with spray and don't believe there is a MAF sensor on this motor. The truck runs great but the fuel economy is lower than it should be. Starting to scratch my head!

and its leaking transmission fluid.

Took to FF Tire to see if they could find out why it was leaking transmission fluid and to check for any other issues before long drive. Also had just bought the car with only about 42000 miles on it. They couldn't find the leak but suggested I change the belt. Now, this was the second mechanic I had brought it to for review and to look for where the fluid may be leaking from. Both places said it was seeping fluid.

The belt just broke and it is under 12,000 miles 3-4 months later which is under their warranty terms. They replaced the belt for free, but now it has needs a gasket replacement along with the pump and other things that will cost 1399. Initially the garage offered me $150 off for the inconvenience. I feel that their insurance should cover them fixing the car for free as the belt was likely defective, or bad product. They then said they would come down to $800 to fix the damage caused by the 'new' belt breaking. I feel they should cover all of it. Legally, who is responsible? If they are not responsible, and they can't recover the loss for repairing the damage caused by the belt from the belt's manufacturer, can't the manufacturer and them have a deal worked out with faulty product so that cars break more often and turn their $80 jobs into $1399?

thanks for any advice.

This is happening continuously.
A/C is not working, and the button to turn it on no longer works. I have recently purchased this car and all seemed to be working well. This has started a few days ago.

a friend whos rarely free toook it off so i could get it tested now hes now were to be found and i must put this back on i dont want to connect wires wrong or assemble wrong

Its getting spark at the plugs and the coil. Its.also getting gas. It turns over strong but wont start. i believe the timing is ok too. It did blow a fuse in the box with relays under the hood and woukd not crank but i replaced it and it started fine. Dont know if the two are related or not.

first i changed the gas cap yesterday ... my service engline soon lamp finally went off today ... cleaned battery terminals today & after re-installing, truck ran good for about 10 miles (no stops) ... when i stopped, it stalled at idle about 3 times before reaching my destination ... does anyone know if i have a fuel issue or perhaps the computer got confused from the power interruption ??? someone said on another forum that the computer has to re-learn after power interruptions?
