It is an orifice type inside hose fitting (High side) at the accumulator can. A Freeze And Explosion (High Pressure) hazard exist. Wear gloves and Safety glasses. Freon must be recovered before opening any lines. Note the valve is directional (arrow) when you remove it. Do not install backwards.

Is there a certain tool to put valve seals in with?

Depends on car. If you are doing this with the head removed from engine most will press into place with your finger. Some valves have such sharp ridges for the locks that a plastic sleeve is provided with the new seals to use on the tip of the valves when reinstalling them. With head on the engine, yes a special tool is used to put air pressure on cylinder to hold valve closed. Then another tool compresses valve spring so you can remove spring to access seal.

sounds like the injector sleeve O rings have failed this was common.
if you put a clear plastic piece of hose on supply line for diesel fuel filter to head fitting at front and fuel is not black but normal diesel colour thats good.
then put clear hose on return line fitting at rear of cylinder head and fuel is now darker, engine oil is by passing injector sleeve top O rings and entering into fuel gallery in head.
rocker cover, injector rail, injectors need removing and injector sleeves need replacing as well as O rings and seats.
a special tool is needed to remove the injector sleeves out of the head. you will also need to drain the cooling system before removing the injector sleeves, so coolant is also needed.
dealers have special tool for injector sleeves

Heater hose busted on my 2001 Montana van

If it's a heater hose, it will go to the firewall behind engine, where it connects to the heater core's fitting that juts out from firewall. Hose goes over that fitting. Heater hoses are fairly easy to replace, maybe not so easy on yours, due to lack of space. Drain the coolant before taking off hose, loosen clamps on it, then start pulling it off. Watch for a hose holding bracket that also needs to be removed before hose is completely free. Some do, some don't have such a bracket. Hire a neighborhood kid that works on cars to replace it, as sometimes that hose to heater core fitting can get stuck on tight, and if one starts yanking or pulling on it, you can break the fitting and will then need a new heater core-big expense to replace. Good luck and merry christmas in capital letters, lol.

My cadillac converter burnt off two hoses behind my engine in my 2000 mercury sable. What are those hoses called and where do they connect to

these two hoses are called the EGR backpressure transducer hoses and need to be replaced with the same type to reduce the risk of fire also you may need a new sensor as some of the newer ones are plastic and melt with the hoses have a back pressure test done on the catalytic converter to make sure you dont have excessive exhaust burning these hoses also there is a small check valve or orifice in the metal tube assembly that the hoses connect to that could be faulty and caused the hoses to melt

I have a 2002 nissan xterra and heater hose broke off at firewall,the insert thats inside the hose going into the firewall broke off inside the firewall.Is it possible to repair without geting behind the...

Remove the firewall rubber grommet to the broken pipe in the firewall. Clean the remaining end of the broken pipe real good, apply a drop of oil on it, then push the heater hose back in and tighten the hose clamp back on. You will need a 12 point box end wrench and it will be slow due to limited access. It should work.

I have removed the spring clip on the bottom radiator hose (left hand side) on my 406 but cannot get the hose out. seems to be a push fit but its stuck. is there something I am missing. All othe hoses...

Sounds like a typical case of stuck hose to me. Sometimes it helps, if you are replacing the hose, to **** it with a razor blade and peel it off with a screwdriver....welcome to the world of auto repair.

No heat from my 1999 f150 heater hose hot on one side other is cold

is sounds like the heater core is clogged up. you can remove the heater hoses, not from the heater core ( the core fittings can be delicate) but from the other ends on the engine and flush it backwards( colder hose) to blow the gunk out, use low pressure air or low pressure water.
There is a potential downside to this, the gunk may be plugging up a leak. take out the gunk and you might have a leak. Also if you over pressurize you may spring a leak. But on the otherhand if you were going to replace the heater core any ways you got nothing to lose. By the way if you do damage the heater core just loop one of the hoses back to the engine fitting. this will keep you on the road until a proper repair can be made. watch out for gunk spraying out of the hose or wear a raincoat and goggles!

How to replace heater hose bypass fitting on 03 impala

You need to buy the fittings first they are sold by a company called HELP motormite. Very common to go bad. You will need to buy or borrow springlock tool. Are sold seperately or in a set. What they are is a garter spring that will disconnect quick connector on fittings. The parts store will have them too.
