6 months ago I put new heads on after blowing a head gasket and discovering both heads were cracked. An inherent problem with the factory 5.7L Vortec heads.
now I have an oil leak that I have been trying to track down and it looks like it is leaking from the head gasket above the starter. Please help

at a cost of 1100.00 is ther any way to tell if it is just the plugs? and is this to much?

change filter once per year

i put on the belt but cant find where to tighten it.

Anyone have a clue where the AC expansion valve is located.

I was told both lines are rusted and leaking and heed to be replaced. The brake system indicator light stays on.

the noise occurs while accelerating or going very slow it makes a grinding sound

what could be wrong?

Please help. any information is greatly appreciated.

My check engine light came on about 1 month ago. I took it to the Toyota Dealer and the diagnostic test came back reading that the catalytic converter needs to be replaced.
I read an article saying to change the gas cap or change fuel type(which I did) and the light went off!!
Does that mean the problem is fixed?????????????

Very noisy, like the muffler has a hole in it. Engine light is on.

It seems I have a coolant leak(only when the engine is running) which seems to be coming from a water line junction or distribution piece that looks maybe to be plastic. It is under the resevoir tank/ air cleaner inlet, down about a foot or so. It has a hose(maybe 2) coming into it from the radiator and 2 hoses leaving it going into the firewall. It has a device that looks like it might be some sort of vacuum switch with a wire or small hose leading off of it, right beside this junction. Is this associated with the heating system? What would this part be called so that I can order a new one? Apparently, it has a crack in it and leaks when under pressure.

we smell gas inside the car at all times.

I have no cover to tell me which fuse goes to what. I bought a book 1996-2005 Ford Taurus Haynes Repair manual and it shows the box but it does not identify which fuse goes to what. I know the blower motor is fine and the resistors behind the glove box are all fine. The fuses under the hood are also fine.

radio wont make sound, turns on though
