This is the car and truck section, but I can tell you there are products on the market for repairing stucco. Much the same as plaster repair.
You can check online or at one of the big box home improvement stores.

How do you fix peeling stucco on exterior of house.


Scrape everything off that is loose. See if there is any damage to the surface underneath, ie. rotted wood -cut it out & replace it. Spray the area with bleach if mold is present & dry. Once you have repaired the surface, coat it with bonding agent(cement area at Lowes or Home Depot) blue is better than white. Now get a bag of stucco and replicate the pattern of the surrounding area.(not easy) Stucco can be troweled on, splattered on, sprayed on, painted-on and in a huge variety of thicknesses. You may even need to trowel a base coaton to even out the surfaces to the surrounding area before you apply the finishing coat. When choosing materials take water proofing into account. Water damage is the usual culprit to stucco loss. Providing a better surface than what was originally there is recommended. Good luck.

What is the best way to fill in cracks in my home? Winter is coming up soon and I want to make sure everything is properly filled up to prevent any leaks. The last thing I want is a wet house during t


Of course you don't want a wet house. You also don't want cold air drafts in the winter, or hot, humid air infiltrating in the summer.

Visit a local hardware store with a list of places you have to seal or patch. They can get you caulk or other things that will fill each one. Different potential links need different solutions, there's no "one size fits all".

The case that holds the thermostat is cracked


This would be called a thermostat housing or cover. It is not impossible to patch but water is erosive. I would use J-B weld.

I have used J-B on a pump housing for a 3500PSI pressure washer and it still works. But there were not constant hot and cold stresses as you have in your engine.

Could I patch a crack that is in my water outlet housing


Most water outlet housings nowadays are made of a thermoset plastic resin material that can be "etched" with a dremmel tool to make the crack accept some epoxy material such as JB Weld (excellent material when mixed exactly per directions) and cleaned with isopropyl alcohol prior to application. A warm hair dryer follow-up is recommended to "flow" the material into the etched crack. Allow to cure overnight (24 hours is best). A similar procedure can be done with mnetallic castings such as in older 70's and 60's vehicles with similar results. The parent material MUST be thoroughly cleane to do a good job!!

Coolant leaks from the plastic housing that the thermostat sits down into.


You may have to remove the thermostqat housing and replace the O ring that is the seal. Otherwise the housing is cracked and needs to be replaced or repaired with an epoxy patch. Hope this assists you. 3ef2f06.gif

My windshield washer reservoir leaks on my '98 Honda Civic.


Ok... put the duct tape down. And back away from the truck... just kidding.. I wouldn't recommend duct tape. or hot glue...
If you have a visible crack or hole, drain the tank to below the crack, clean with a little vinegar and water, and lightly sand the plastic housing.
Place a small patch of plastic sheetrock mesh tape over the crack and then...
Use a bit of epoxy that is recommended for use on plastics. Mix up a small batch, spread over the crack and over the mesh.. Let dry and refill.
Don't worry about pressure, because the tank isn't under pressure on most cars...
