I recently had my car serviced for an ignition control module replacement. I noticed this morning that I had smoke coming from under my hood and a greenish fluid leaking. The engine temp wasn't off and the leak was on the driver side of the engine bay. I found a steady leak from my upper radiator hose. I found the part number at NAPA and can purchase it at NAPA for about $16. Is this a very difficult repair or can I perform this myself? I am a college student with absolutely depleted funds after my last repair. If I can fix it myself, I would prefer to do so but don't want to ruin everything on the same token. Thanks for your help!
A garage told me my ventilator control module was bad. GM no longer makes this part (Is there a substitute?). The garage told me they would find it for me, but it would probably cost about $300. Can this be correct?
The power windows and HVAC started working sporadically and now they don't work at all. The power door locks still work fine. Would this part be the cause of these problems?
The hose that is leaking is visible and easily accessible. The part is also available at any parts store.
