A/C & Heater fan switch only works on 4 & 5 and no heat in cabin.


It could be 2 seperate issues. The wiring harness under the dash has a long history of overheating and can result in any of the fan speeds to not work or work. Luckily this happened to my 2006 4.8L while still under warranty and they replaced the resitor harness(I can still see the plastic damaged on the plug. The heat issue usually is from low coolant, the hose assembly (in my opinion) is substandard. It is actually a "Y" hose assembly and where the 3 hoses come together, GM decided to make the "Y" out of plastic? It will leak and break within the first 5 years and cost $136+/- from dealer. If you are handy with copper, I used a 3/4in "T", along with 3/4 to 1" reducer fitting for the resivoir side and 3\4 inch hard copper tubing (about an inch or so long) on either end of the straight thru part of the copper "T". And literally cut the plastic "Y" out of the hose assembly. And used pipe screw clamps. All of the copper is availible at most home improvement stores, whowever I used HVAC braising sticks instead of regular plumbing solder to make the copper connections though I'm sure standard plumbing solder will work fine since its only 15 p.s.i.. then there is the issue of the wonderfull "quick disconnects" that will leak at the firewall going into the cabin as soon as you touch the pipe assembly. Goto auto parts store, disconnect them and cut off. Carefull now, the aluminum tubes that the "quick disconnect" fittings attached to can crush easily so when you tighten the hose clamps (yeah, did I mention to get 2 more and use them once you cut the quick disconnect off?), be carefull to not go crazy. It's improbable that you would crush the tubes, but just know that they are thin walled so use care.

Quick disconnect tool is not helpful on disconnecting fuel line from fuel filter on 92 F 150 w/4.9L


there are a few different tools and some work well and others just plain ****. Patience is the key sometimes with poor quality tools. If yo have the multi quick dis connect tool that is like the swiss army knife of quick disconnect tools, thats the worst one.
My neighbor had trouble with a quick disconnect fitting and came to get me. when I got in his garage he said "here's the tool." I threw it in the trash and came back to get my set of quick disconnects. It tool me longer to open the case, get the tool out and put it back than the time it took to undo the connection.

Looking for the low port to recharge my air


A/C low side ports are located on the 'thicker' plumbing vs. the 'thinner' plumbing coming off of the compressor.

Just follow the low side pipes from the compressor to the first low side port. It should also fit a quick connector onthe hose/can combination for r134a. The high pressure side port will not work with the low side hose quick connector.

Hope this helps.

Disconnect fuel lines from fuel tank


There are two types of connectors on these lines. Either brightly colored quick-connects which do not require tools, (Just squeeze the tabs together). Or black quick connects which must be pushed back to remove line.
