Question Asked: 

I bought a 98 pickup and it has been sitting for about 6 mos. I checked all the fluids and it had about a 1/2" of oil floating in the overflow cooland tank. The motor runs great and the radiator water doesn't look bad. Where could this have come from? I cleaned out the tank and hope that it won't do it again. Any other ideas? Thanks-K

Question Asked: 

I'm replacing the intake gaskets and when I have to put the push rods back is there a best way to torque the rockers? I have an inch pound wrench. Do you just tighten them up or do you have to turn the engine over? I'm a little unsure of this part. Thanks

Question Answered: 

On most cars all you have to do is unhook the positive side of the battery when the car is running. If it dies the alternator is not working. If it is not working your battery will just run out of juice, no light, no start.

Question Answered: 

Most likely it is your hazard switch module which would likely be in the fuse block but I would check the turn signal fuses and hazard fuses first.
