The part in question has a plastic piece on the hose that secures it. It is also located below the altenator.

other gears are fine... we had this problem before with our ford Taurus and it was due to a leak we sealed the leak but the car ultimately gave up on us anyway. how else can we fix a gear shifting issue? or is it most definitely the transmission?

I called around some said motor oil others said automatic transmission fluid. It look and smelled like gear oil came out of it.

I'm not sure if it could be welded or what other vehicles are compatible for that engine, 3.1.thanks

The other day at a red light the vehicle shut down, in trying to restart I got nothing not a sound. AAA came and tested the battery which was fine. My mechanic is baffled, he manually stated the vehicle and checked the alt. Battery, both of which were fine. He ran a analysis on the commuter and there were no warnings or indications. This morning the car started right up with the key and is running fine. The only thing I noticed before this incident was the ABS warning light came on. Naturally my guy doesn't want to release the car until he figures the cause.

the antifreeze will not drain into the engine, why?

what would cause a rough idle
what would cause lost oil to the tone of 2 quarts every 4 days


New gasket and grommets were replaced after the mechanic said everything looked good and suggested an engine flush and oil and filter change. The engine was flushed and serviced. The rattle and ticking noise is gone...now there is oil leaking and burning on the exhaust manifold.a lot of smoke. I've asked the mechanic to fix the problem as there was no leaks coming from engine prior to him working on the vehicle. He has had my vehicle for 4 days now And he said he's checked and over looked everything. But it is still leaking. He said he is just going to silicone everything and see what happens.if that is going to take care of the problem. Please help with suggestions, advice?

He said there seemed to be nothing wrong with the lifters. He did suggest an engine flush. So I bought the engine flush and oil and filter. He said he flushed the engine. Did the oil and filter change. The engine was quite. However when I went to pick my vehicle up he stated that there was a little oil that spilled while putting in the oil. So there maybe some smoke from oil burning off the manifold exhaust. I told him I took it for a ride and the smoke was bad and there was oil dripping. What could be the problem now. And is this acceptable? Should I take the mechanic to court?

replaced head gaskets test started and it ran shut down to finish puting on the fan and shroud and air cleaner and now it will not start no codes

Is brand new and I charged it up just to make sure that it wasn't dead and nothing works my power locks don't work and when I put the key in the ignition my gauges won't work and I can't even get it to click . I also tried a push start and that didn't work as well please help

i just replaced the master clutch cylinder and the slave clutch cylinder as well the whole complete clutch. the problem is that when i drive it for a long while it loses engaging power. i think something is not allowing the fluid to come back to where it needs to be when it gets to hot. if i let the truck sit for a few hours or so, i think it allows the fluid to settle back where it needs to be. after that i can drive it again, but than it will do it again. i am just confused on what the problem is. hopefully someone has experienced this issue before can help me out.

I have changed plugs wires cap rotor fuel filter timing belt when I get up around 70 mph it starts to get a miss used to be mainly going up hills but is now more frequent. It did this before I changed everything.

I have a 99 rodeo an I put a timing belt on an reset the timing but now it will turn over slowly like the battery need charging but it a new battery if anyone can tell me anything I thank you.

the old girls got 267,000 ml. On her. I hauled her out to AZ. from TN. & when I unloaded it I noticed a small spot of what looked like hydraulic fluid on the ground. Right below the transmission. Looked around for were it came from but couldn't find it. Sounds like my hydraulic clutch needs to be replaced don't it? Our could it be something else? Also mine has the engine tick to. I use ZMAX every 3 to 4 oil changes and that seems to quieten it down.
