My dipsticktube is broken off about tow inches above the motor. it a 93 s-10 with a 4.3. how would l remove it?


If the remaining part of the dip-stick tube is oil soaked. It should pull out easily. Take a small screw or bolt and slide it into the tube. The bolt must fit inside snug (don't use one that will drop down and inside the pan). At the bottom of the tube, wet it with penetrating oil (to break up the rust). Then attach the vice-grips to the tube. The bolt or screw is to prevent you from crushing the tube. Gently rock the vice-grips back and forth, to break the tube loose from the engine block. Don't be too rough, you don't want to break the tube flush. If you are unsuccessful, remove the vice-grips and with a small hammer and flat chisel. Gently tap the bottom of the tube. Don't cut through it, the goal is to try to break the rust inside loose. After a few taps, reconnect the vice-grips and try again. you may need to repeat 6-12X so be patient. Please let me know about your progress and if you have other questions, good luck.

Auto repair on a 1990 5.7 litre chev 4x4 truck-need to change a leaky oil cooler line - notice only a fitting at one end of the replacement line-connecting to rad-any procedural info on the reconnection of...


is this the bolt in fittings with a flared tubing, or are you talking about quick connect fittings? Quick connect is noted by an retaining spring shaped like an horeshoe;it can be removed with a small pick or pocket screw driver, be carfull it will shot off so keep hands on it. and before you stick the new line in you need to putt spring in place first then install the line. if you have patrolem jelly rub some on the line it will help it go in easier. thus quick connect.

How do you fix the oil coolant line?


I assume there is a pin-hole in the line? Easiest way is to find the leak, cut it out, and reconnect with the right size fuel hose (should be 1/4" or 3/8"). Make sure to use small hose clamps to connect the hose

Where is the a.i.r. pump located



The air pump for the secondary air system (emission control device) is located under the battery. If you do replace it, replace the check valve too, it is on top of the exhaust manifold and connected to the pump with a hose. The check valve fails and ruins the pump. Source(s): http://repairpal.com/volvo-850-1997/comm…
http://repairpal.com/air-pump-check-valv…
http://repairpal.com/air-pump

OR


I think they are talking about the pump to provide vacuum to the climate control when the turbo is putting boost in the intake manifold. The vacuum can come from an electric pump or from an engine driven pump, something like an old engine driven fuel pump. I needed an electric pump for my 765T, and all the wrecking yards wanted to sell me the engine driven form. (A new one was $500, and it wasn't that important to me.)

An engine that takes the engine driven pump will have a hole in it while the others will not have a hole. Source(s): 35 years maintaining my own cars, including 17 years with a 1985 765T
