How do you replace only the glass in the power mirror drivers side

Hello everyone.
Can overheating damage the sleeves (cylinders) in any way? Particularly at the lower part?

I'm replacing the head gaskets after running without water and my mechanic, who's never worked on a Maxima before, told me that, after overheating, engines with sleeves instead of a bored block may have damages at the lower area where it's supposed to be sealed and not let water and oil mix.

Is this a real risk in Maxima Engines?
It's a 1996 3.0 24v V6.

I appreciate any thoughts.

it only happens when it rain

past couple months its been staling here and there. i would jump start it and it would be fine. was hoping to get thru xmas then i wld fix it. yesteday it wldnt take a jump. would start up but then stall while cables were still attached, had it towed to friend/mechanic of mine and he replaced battery with a fully working one and it wont even start. any ideas why?

rear brake cylinder, to much pressure

what are the codes i have change these parts already still getting this codes

egr and o2 sensor was change but we're still getting a code vehicle runs good what need to be done

Where are the headlight fuse(s) located? Engine compartment? trunk? Cabin?

My passenger side low beam headlight went out I replaced both sides. Both worked for a short time then the passenger side failed again. My message reads "bulb dipped" ?
I must have not gotten the bulb back in the holder correctly because when I inspected the bulb it was smashed. Can a bulb "blow up"? It was working after I installed it and after 1 or 2 trips out it was destroyed! Now I only have drivers side again. I've tested the bulb I'm using to replace and it's good, but there's no power to the passenger side. The fuse is good because the drivers side works. Could it be in the light switch? How can there be power to only 1 headlight?


Toyota dealer says in addition to the Transmission Flush, he says I need Power Steering Flush. Total for both services is about $320.00.
I have no problems with any of the above systems.

My 1992 F-150, with the in-line six cyl 4.9L has a mysterious ignition problem. Between five and fifteen minutes after it is started, it simply dies and will not re-start, under any circumstances. The only way to get it started again is to disconnect the battery and let it sit for several hours, or even overnight.

After this, it starts again, with no problem.

As long as the battery is still connected, it will not start, at all. Even if left to sit for a month, it will still not start, but once the battery is disconnected, it will re-start, after a lengthy period of time.

I love this truck and have put a lot of money into some basic maintenance that the previous owner overlooked, for several years. It is driving me crazy that I cannot figure out what the issue is.

I have eliminated the coil, the distributor, the fuel pump, the vaccuum lines, and the "inertia switch" or fuel pump reset switch.

There is only one other thing I can think of, and that is the ignition control module. But right now I cannot afford to chance buying the thing, without being pretty sure that it's the source of the problem.

I have an idea it is the fuel pump, it stalls and only runs if I am pressing the gas

the diagnosis said : open or shorted solenoid. or open or shorted circuit condition

Was any one able to find a fix for the gas cap problem? If so how did you fix it?
