What is the best way to replace the hose
bought in feb. this year..ran perfect. in may, started stalling while i was out. but would start back up several times. then wouldnt start. had it towed. when tow truck guy tried to start it was clanking. noticed that the pcv elbow was gone. got it to garage said cam was cracked and had to replace engine. went used. 2 months and 1400 dollars later. got it back not as quiet or smooth. started having brake issues. was told by friend it was a vacuum issue. i was also dripping radiator fluid around the intake gaskets and my water pump was crunching and would need to be replaced. within in weeks was getting very rough ride. found the pcv elbow to have a whole on replacing found two other hose not attached and one melted clean through due to placement. due to lack of money couldnt take to shop but couldnt find info about where or what they were. so limited driving as much as possible. friday it began to overheat and spew radiator fluid around engine. got home as fast as i could. parked it. when it cooled i tried to check for leaks etc. assumed it was probably water pump gone. went to start car and there is no power at all. not even a click. brother in law came to day and tried to jump it. nothing. not even a click. checked fuses under hood he thinks alternator. but i dont see how. is there a safety feature that would shut the power off like that. it just doesnt seem like a dead battery. is there something to be checked first?

My 2000 Silhouette won't start we checked the battery and thats not the problem. What else could be wrong?
My 2000 Silhouette. I replace the fuel pump and filter because the Van would run for a while and sputter and stop. It would take some time to start again. Once started I would have to keep foot on pedal and brake and then put it in gear or it would turn off. I also replace the fuel pump relay switch under the hood.If I let the van idle and wait it would eventually turn off.There is no check engine light occurence when this happens.Please advise me on a solution if possable. Thank you. Ray

how to change rear spark plugs

I have a 2001 Oldsmobile Silouette Van that is having problems with the following: rear wing windows do not open with the switch, the rear air compressor is not working, the unlock switch only works to automatically lock the doors not unlock. Doors will only unlock manually and automatically if you turn the ignition switch off. I have checked the fuses inside and under the hood and all look good. I took it to a mechanic in town and he could not find the problem. He said there is current running thru to the windows, etc. He thought it could be a bad module. Any ideas?
How can I replace my fuel lines from the engine to where the lines are routed through the frame without using a factory set. It has push in compression fittings plastic to metal. Does anyone know of a way to replace lines without taking half of the vehicle apart?
