Get the gasket and the thermostat ... winter temp thermostat ... tho summer should be fine.... two bolts hold the housing on to the engine block... remove them .... clean off any of the old gasket... make sure you put the thermostat in the proper way... i believe the part that heats up goes toward the motor but check on that.... some do and some don't but i would apply some gasket goo and then bolt it back up. start it up.... check the level of the antifreeze and add if necessary... check for leaks..... put the rad cap back on after it's heated enough that water is flowing.... as it builds up pressure ... check for leaks again.... i've left this for last but it should be first.... drain some of the antifreeze before you start the job.... doesn't have to be all of it.

after a few cycles of heating up... check that the bolts are still tight and that there are no leaks... remember one thing... antifreeze will leak where water wouldn't.

2001 impala shakes while turnin left if i give it gas i replaced ball joints tierods stablizer bushings hubs tires struts why does it still have slight shake do ya think aligning it might help

Most likely the offending part is a C/V joint. On front wheel drive vehicals thre are two per side an inboard and an outboard. Best option is to buy and install entire assembly, which includes inboard,outboard,and axle. Good luck

How to back the brakes off on a 2001 pontiac grand am so I can replace with new brake pads

Welcome to Fixya

Please see procediure below:

  • 1

    Disconnect the negative battery cable. Using a syringe, turkey baster or similar tool, drain two third of the brake fluid from the master cylinder. Raise the Grand AM up and secure it on jackstands. Remove the wheel assembly.

  • 2

    Remove the caliper from the steering knuckle. Using mechanic's wire suspend the caliper from the frame of the vehicle. Avoid having the caliper dangle or hang from the brake hose or it will result in the brake line being damaged. Remove both the inboard and outboard brake pads. To unseat the clip tilt the inboard pad out at the top.

  • 3

    Remove the outboard pad. Release the mounting dowel from the hole in the caliper by pushing the outside pad in an inward motion. Pull the inboard pad outward to remove it from the caliper.

  • 4

    Install the inboard pad. Make sure that the spring clip engages in the caliper position. Install the outboard pad over the caliper end. Make sure that the mounting dowels snap into the mounting holes in the caliper. Install the caliper over the rotor onto steering knuckle.

  • 5

    Insert the caliper mounting bolts and sleeves. Torque the bolts to 23-ft. lbs. Reconnect the wheel assembly. Add brake fluid. Reconnect the negative battery cable to the battery.

  • 6

    Start the engine and pump the brakes 3 to 4 times to seat the brake pads. Test drive the vehicle at slow to moderate speeds to ensure that the maintenance was performed correctly.

  • Thank you for using FIxya!

    How do I adjust the low beam height on a 2007 jeep grand cherokee/

    1. Turn the headlamps ON and select the LOW beams for vehicles in all markets except Japan. Vehicles for the Japanese market should have the headlamp HIGH beams selected.
    2. Insert a screwdriver through the outboard clearance hole (1) in the front lamp unit cover (2) to rotate the headlamp vertical adjustment screw on each front lamp (3) to adjust the beam height as required.
    3. For export markets only, insert a screwdriver through the inboard clearance hole in the front lamp unit cover to rotate the headlamp horizontal adjustment screw on each front lamp to adjust the beam right or left as required.

    Grinding feeling on front left wheel. stops when steering to the right.

    Check your front brakes. Be sure to check the inboard pads, not just outboard. We have seen many time the outboard pad looks good, but the inboard pad is falling apart.

    Rough idle whene in gear..

    The idle in your car is computer controlled and should return to programmed specs when you replace the plugs with OEM recommended ones. But, the idle will be somewhat lower due to the age and condition of your vehicle and all it's engine control components. Don't expect it to be perfect.

    My low headlight in my envoy 2002 is down i checked the fuse and still no luck

    If this low beam is on one headlight only, I would say that the light is burnt out. Both hi and low beams are on the same bulb.The bulb has 2 filiments, one low and one hi. If you get just one light out , it is most likely a bulb. If you get both sides not working at the same time, it could be something else. You have checked the fuses and deemed them to be o/k. Then you should be checking for headlight bulbs.

    Adjusting headlights

    Park about 20 feet away from a smooth wall, facing directly at it. Put a piece of tape on the wall about 26-28" off the ground. Turn on the lights and see where they hit the wall - you want the beams to hit the wall centered on the tape. If they're not centered on the tape, open the hood and look at the top of the headlights, along the back of them. At the inboard and outboard corners, you'll see adjustment screws. One of them will aim the light up and down, and the other will aim it left to right (not sure which is which on the Windstar, but on many cars the lateral adjustment is the inboard screw, and the outboard screw adjusts beam height). Just turn the screws until the light height is centered on the tape, then take a test drive and try it out. If it's still too low, turn them up farther. That's all there is to it.
