December 06, 2009, 05:36 PM
i replaced my water pump all hoses and thermostat sucessfully having great heat and a great running car for one day but the bottom hose that my assitant put on to the lower engine side failed. after having it towed i have repaired the clamp and replaced the antifreeze. now it will not start i have rlpaced the altenator and battery which both have failed to pass the checks at my auto store supplier. could i have a cracked head gasket or is it the steam shorted out the starter or something else?
Question Answered: what is the commom mileage to replace shock absorbers?
December 07, 2009, 04:39 PM
they tell you every 50,000 miles but how is it riding, what type of payload do you carry, and is it bad enough to risk other problems. some other issues will let you know such as tire wear out not do to alignment. also is this is your only means of reliable transportation or can you put up with it because i only drive this thing a couple of days per week? if this is your one horse stay close to the manufactuers advice on this one in your owners manual. airforce 1
Question Answered: Leaking radiator hose
December 06, 2009, 07:12 PM
clear iquid is not green the color of antifreeze, nor red as transmission fluid, nor black as oil so if it is after you have been running the ac maybe it is condensation some people really mistake this for a leak of some type.however brake fluid is clear and the master cylinder is exactcly where you say the leak is happening so maybe give it the put your finger into the fluid test and smell and feel what type fluid we are looking at. Hope this helps you.

if your cataylic exhaust system is bad your exhaust is backing up which is shutting you down. cars have to get rid of their exhaust in order to run.
Question Answered: cost to replace starter 2000 ford taurus lx
December 06, 2009, 06:21 PM
starters on taruas are not very difficult to put on and usually the cost of a stater and a buddy who has replaced a few staters in his lifetime can have you rolling in about forty-five minutes and the cost of a six pack.most staters for the ford taruas are around 90.00 to 125.00.
Question Answered: water leak around water pump but not pump
December 06, 2009, 06:02 PM
the water pump can still be doing its job fine however in many cases the gasket to your water pump can be failing which will need replacing soon if this is the case go ahead and change out that old waterpump also.
