Most likely, yes. You will need to compress the strut spring to replace the strut mount bearing. Cheer's Evan
Your car, unfortunately, is listed as an interference engine so valve damage could be an issue but there is hope! If the T/belt broke when the vehicle was idling in gear or something like that damage could have been avoided. If the T/belt broke while cruising at 60mph not so good. Is this some thing that your going to tackle yourself? If so let me know I'll give you some tips on how to tell if damage was done or not. Cheer's, Evan
I believe it is on the RH side of the engine, sitting in the truck. The one closest to the engine exhaust manifold.
Sounds like you have a vacuum leak. Some of the doors in the air distribution box are actuated by engine vacuum. So whats happening is that under a load/acceleration the engine creates less vacuum then at cruising or low speed, high vacuum, operation. If there is a leak in this system of sufficient size it will over come the weak vacuum signal during acceleration and all the doors will return to there default - defrost. Keep your ears open an listen for a hissing sound most likely under the hood somewhere but could be under the dash. The vacuum circuits are small plastic tubes, red green black - one or more, I can't remember, that go through the fire wall to the distribution box. They break very easy but you can mend them back together with some hose. Good Luck, Cheers.
It's most likely a wear indicator that is making this sound . A small tab of metal attached to one or both brake pads front or rear, not drum brakes, that rub against the rotors surface, sort of like fingernails on a chalk board. That is placed at a measured depth parallel with the pads travel as an indication when the pad has reached its service limit by emitting an audible sound. A annoying hard to ignore, tho some do, squeak. Good luck with that an have them checked out soon before you cost your self more parts/money.
Yes there is such a part. It is the pipe that makes the connection between the filler neck and the fuel tank. As far as you just needing a gas cap it would have depended on the condition of this pipe. If the pipe had developed a hole or had become porous due to rust or whatnot it needed to be replaced. You might of just needed a gas cap but without seeing the old part you'll have to go on faith that you didn't.
