SOURCE: replacing outer tie rod on a 2000 dodge neon

put the tie rod back in and thread the nut on. then you turn the inner tierod with a pipe wrench or a big pair of channel locks. you can spray the threads with pb blaster or wd-40. also if ya have a propane torch this helps loosen the threads. apply heat to the outer tierod do not heat the inner. good luck jimmy

SOURCE: 2005 Pathfinder Heater

Just had the same problem and got the same answer about removing the body to repair. Apparently it's an integrated set of lines serving both rear heat and cooling. Very expensive and not covered by extended warranty. My dealer was able to isolate the corroded heater line at the rear wheel well. They cut out that section and replaced it with a rubber hose and clamps. It worked for heat, but if AC lines suffers the same fate, there is no option other than the very expensive full line replacement.

SOURCE: Tie rod ends on 05 dodge durango

Hi there.... Tie rod ends are not hard to do at all. Take the tire off, you'll see the tie rod end. Take the nut off the end on the spindle side and lossen the nut at the other end. With a hammer, hit the section that the spindle end is inserted to until it pops out. Then unscrew the tie rod. Make sure you count how many turns it takes to remove the old tie rod end..... screw the new one in the same amount of turns that it took the old one to come off. this way you will have it close to what the old one was at. You will have to get a wheel alignment afterwards in order to have it all set up. Hope this helps you out.

Why does my radiator become empty after 30 minuets of driving and water appears on the driver side floor?

Your heater core is leaking, bypass the core by removing hoses from firewall and joining together, or cable tying over, this will get you back on the road until you can replace the heater core.

Corrision affecting rear heater

You can't plug the hoses to the engine. You have to loop the hose back to the engine with 5/8 hose careful not to kink them. Tie the hose up out of the way with tie straps.

Is it possible for power steering fluid to get into the engine and mix with the oil? I am loosing fluid and there are no visible leaks, the engine oil and filter was recently changed and now has turne

No, the power steering is entirely a separate and sealed system, wholly external to the engine. The power steering pump pushes the fluid through a high pressure hose into the rack and pinion-the steering gear mounted below and behind the engine-and holds pressure within the rack that enables power assisted steering. At the same end where the power steering fluid hose enters the gear will be a fitting for a return line back to the fluid reservoir. These two hoses are usually routed close together at least part of the way, some may even be held together with brackets. Leaks could develop at the pump, the fluid reservoir, or the two hoses to and from the rack and pinion, or the seals inside the rack and pinion may have failed. You should be able to find the leak-it will only leak to the outside-to check the rack and pinion for leaks, right where your tie rods come out of the gear and go to the wheels for steering, will be a small rubber boot encasing the tie rod and the end of the rack assembly-on both ends is a boot and a tie rod-peel back the rubber boot from the gear ass\'y, it should be dry. If a lot of fluid, the seals in the rack and pinion are gone. It will have to be replaced.
Hopefully you will find a leaking hose or fractured reservoir, but keep looking, air flow may be blowing the leaking fluid back and under the car. Good luck, hope it\'s not the rack and pinion.

Good Morning, I have a Ford E150 1995 with rear air conditioner. I have seen anti freeze on the ground by the left rear tire. Is that a metal line or rubber hose. Thanks for your any help you can give me.

The plumbing to the rear heater is metal lines under the body and then connect with rubber to the core in the heater, with the age of the van the leak is most likey the metal lines corroded. If you don't need the rear heater operational, the lines can be by-passed in the front of the van [ it will not affect the cooling system].

if your rubber hoses are cracked and leaking then replace the hoses with proper size and length.
if the hoses are leaking where they connect to the metal fittings from the heater core then try and tighten up the hose clamps -- they could just be loose.

Rear heater line is gone in van. How can I cap this line? The antifreeze runs right out the line as I put it in the rad. The rear heater is in the off position.

You'll have to rejoin or replace the rear heater core line that leads to the rear from the front if it's leaking like described.

One might be able to use a section of rubber hose with clamps, if the two ends are flared with a tool, hoping that the pressure won't make it leak at these two joints.

Or, as suggested in the question, one might cap the line, disabling the rear heater. Check with your local auto parts store for a rubber cap that can block the end. Maybe try a place like Lowe's which stocks a wide variety of plastic, rubber, and metal plumbing supplies that might be helpful.

this is an unfortunaty problem with the pathfinder with the rear heat, but this is what you can do and it will be alot cheaper. cut out the sections that are leaking, which are the 2 places where the rear pipes are held together with a piece of rubber and plastic zip ties and splice in a section of heater hose and hose clamp it . i have fixed one like that because the people had limited funds and that was all they could afford and it has been fine for few years. i beleive it cost them about 250.

Rear heater core line leaking, can I fix w/ rubber hose and clamps? The leak is right below drivers side door. There are four lines that run to rear heater core but only one is leaking.

yeah hose and clamps are the cheap easy way to go there, or if your lucky, the leak is right at the spot where the hose meets the metal and you can just cut the end off and put it back with the old clamp

I'm replacing the Power Steering Pressure Hose on my 1995 Chevy

If it disconnected where the metal meets the rubber you dont have to replace it. Cut it straight where it broke, and shove it bakc inside. expect some oil leaking, and tie it down wit a hose-tie (just like a cable tie made of metal, with a small screw)
