There is a round metal tube that appears to be attached to the back of the thermostat housing and is located above the starter, its been leaking for a while the tube looks pretty well rotted out, and I have been told by my mechanic that it is built into the head and cannot be replaced, I find that hard to believe, the leak has ruined a starter, the car runs great, body is in pretty good shape, I don't want to junk it because I can't get the leak stopped. Can you help me. Its leaking almost a gallon a day, that is the only place it is leaking. The metal tube also has a small hose that appears to go to the heater core. Can you help.

i need to replace my starter

Bought the car a month ago.Replaced starter,valve cover gasket, plugs,coils,wires, pcv,oil & filter,t-stat & gasket. Car rolled over but wouldn't start. Checked for fuel at fuel rail, had pressure and fuel @ schrader valve. I then checked for spark. My first check revealed high spark in one coil low in the other, that's when I changed both coils and the end result was low spark at both coils and still no start. What Gives ????

My car has been recently been shaking a lot when idol. it only happens when i come to a stop at a stop light and it becomes harder to accelerate out of idle when green. recently, the check engine light came on so now im worried. what could be the problem with my car? just to be clear, the movement is more of a jerking motion in the engine that happens continuously until i start driving again, then it stops.

How do I replace the driver's side door panel that controls the power doors/windows?

When i come to a Complete stop, then I step on the gas, my vehicle starts to shake violently and the sounds are just horrible. I checked for all the signs for blown head gaskets and checked my tranny fluid. Nothing seemed out of the ordinary.It also has major power loss on take off. and forget about uphills; it goes about 5 miles an hour. It happens about 85% of the time.

if anyone can help me with any info. on how to change the starter I would greatly appreciate it.
