SOURCE: I have a 1999 taurus 3.0 v6. The trans cooler line

You can buy a snap in replacement end that can be bent and attached to 3/8 th's fuel line and by pass the rotted metal line. I have been doing transmissions Since 1981, and have the same rotted lines on my 01 Windstar. I just went to all hose except the line into trans and into radiator. double clamp the hose on the lines and save a lot of money. make sure you sip tie the hose so it is out of the way and check your trans fuel level when you are done. Let it get hot in park and running when you check the level on the stick.

Hope this helps.

Hope this helps

How to flush coolant from a 2003 holden vectra zc


Disconnect upper and lower radiator hoses while vehicle running. Insert water hose on upper hose and let it run water until you no longer see coolant coming out. Remember to have heaters running to also clean heater core.
Once clear water comes out of lower hose, turn vehicle off and re-attach both hoses. Fill with proper coolant and run vehicle with heaters on. Take for a drive to remove any air from system. Then top off with coolant.

How to replace the quick release connector from the fuel feed hose of a 2010 holden cruze. "fuel leaking"


There is a cheap tool you need to release it. Auto parts stores usually care them. You push it into the back side of the swag and pull the line out at the same time. The O rings in it can be replaced. Bend a paper clip and reach in to pull them out. Take them down and match them up. Chemical resistant O rings only.

How do you remove the quick connect fittng on 97 expidition heater hose?


Parts stores sell an inexpensive little piece called a quick connect fitting tool. It slips inside the quick connect fitting and releases it so you can pull it apart. If you tell them at the store it is for a heater hose fitting for Expeditions, they should have the right sized one in stock. The quick connect fittings have many sizes and applications.

Range rover 2002 model 4.4i petrol engine, every 50-100km, losing 2litres water needs constant topping up. no sign of leaks around head gasket or rad. Inside carpet is dry so not heater matrix. what is...


It appears that you have a minor leak at where a hose attaches to an engine or radiator pipe. When the engine is hot, any small leak will evaporate quickly and therefore not be seen. As the coolant heats up it will expand into the overflow tank but once the engine is stopped the extra heat build up will force the coolant out the leaking joint. As the engine cools, the leak prevents the coolant from being sucked back from the overflow tank.

Check all hoses and clamps including heater hoses and those pesky little bypass hoses in the cooling system for a good tight fit and replace any hoses that have gone hard or have become soft and stretched. Those spring type hose clamps tend to be less effective in clamping as the hoses age. Worm drive ones are the best to use.

If unsure take vehicle to a cooling system specialist and have them do a pressure test and more thorough diagnosis.

If problem persists, then it could indicate a problem with the head gasket (Usually caused by allowing engine to become excessively overheated when cooling system has run dry) allowing very hot high pressure combustion gases into the engine water jacket, which super heats the coolant in the engine block, which then boils off, and is released via the cap or any leaks. If the head gasket is really bad it will leak water into the cylinders and into the oil in the sump. This is indicated by an emulsion of water and oil mix on the dipstick. You will also see white smoke (water vapour) from the exhaust.

No heat thermostat isopening and closing andfanis working sometimes you get a little barley warm air then it goes back to cold air also ck. eng. light is on


Ck Eng light probably not related.
The heater core is clogged. A bottle of cooling system "quick flush" may be all you need ($6 AutoZone).
There is also a complete flush system, but requires that you splice into the heater hose (I installed it on my Taurus - works great!).

By the way, there is a heater core bypass hose. It is connected to the two heater core hoses near the firewall. You may want to remove the two "Tee" fittings and use a 5/8" hose splicer so that the flush passes through the heater core at full force. Put the Tee's back in place after the flush.

If you remove the tee fittings and don't flush, the heater will work, but the core may eventually start leaking.
