Why did you remove it? That is a really big deal because of contamination issues and potentially dangerous pressures. The fact that you are asking this is scary. Those are the inlet and output of the compressor. Yes, they have to be plugged to avoid contamination. You need professional help with this.

Need to know if i need to remove alternator and drivebelt to install a thermostat. Where exactly is it located.

Hi Sophia:
If You follow the hose from the top of the radiator to the engine, it will be attached to a fitting that is bolted to the top pf the block, usually with 2 bolts.
The thermostat is located under that fitting.
With the engine cool, open the radiator cap to make sure that pressure is released. Drain coolant to get it below the level of the thermostat. Disconnect the hose, unbolt the fitting, gently pry it up. and remove the old thermostat. Clean, install new one, gasket or sealer, bolt it back in, re-install the hose, add coolant, replace radiator cap start and check for leaks, go cruise the strip.

How to install 1994 camry radiator

- Drain the coolant into a container, by opening the drain tap, or if that is not present, loosening the lower radiator hose.

- Remove upper and lower radiator hoses, and the reservoir hose from the filler neck

- Disconnect the wiring connector to the fan motor

- Remove the cruise control actuator cover if necessary to gain more space

- unbolt the fan shroud from the radiator and remove the fan and shroud

- on an auto, remove the trans cooler lines from the bottom of the radiator, and plug the lines

- unbolt the radiator and lift it out. Take care not to lose the rubber insulators on the radiator mounts. Clean with compressed air.

- install in reverse, taking care the rubber mount insulators are in place. Unless they are very new, take this opportunity to replace both radiator hoses. Refill the radiator.

- Test drive for a short distance and top up, if needed, the radiator, and auto trans if fitted. Red low silicate antifreeze additive is recommended for these engines. Do not mix red and green types.

How to take radiator off

Not too difficult, a little time consuming. First, take off your negative connection on battery. Drain radiator from bottom plug or drain. You will have to remove the cooling fan assemblies: unplug electrical connectors, and unbolt assemblies from top of radiator or support brackets. Bottom of assemblies may have bolts also, or may just fit in slots. Now remove the top and bottom radiator hoses- loosen clamps, and work hoses back and forth till they're free, then pull off. Also, remove little hose to your coolant overflow tank from radiator filler neck. Check if all electrical and other connections are free. Radiator is bolted by two (or more) upper bolts to radiator support, Don't think there are any on bottom- radiator should pull up and out now.

Can i change an intake valve spring without pulling the motor?

yes you can but you need special tools you need an air compressor and hose with a fitting that will screw into your sprrk plug hole. then you need an over head valve spring compressor. the air from the compressor will hold the valve against the head while you remove the valve retainers or collets to remove the spring. then you just assemble it all again is not hard but you do need the right gear

How do u tune up satrun l300 2002 how do i get to the plug and wire

this is a hard car to change them on unfortunetly but here is a guide to help you do it.
Tools required:

1 Crescent Wrench 1 "5/8 Spark Plug Socket 1 "3/8 Drive Ratchet 1 "3/8 Drive Extension 1 "1/4 Drive Ratchet 1 Pair of Small Channel Lock Pliers 1 Inverted Torx Socket Set
Even if you do not own any tools at most you should spend about $75 for the tools required to do this task.

Looking down at the engine you will see the two intake manifold runners and four boots for each one. Each boot has two clamps. The easiest way to take them off was to use a pair of small channel lock pliers to squeeze the clamp enough to unlatch the clip. they make a special tool for this, But its not really worth the money.

The front manifold is a little easier than the rear one. there are only three bolts that need to be unbolted and the manifold should slide off.

Now there are two bolts that need to be removed and the coil packs can be slid out.

The front spark plugs are now exposed and can be changed.

The rear is a little more tricky because there is more that needs to be removed off of the manifold. The PCM can either be unbolted or unplugged. Whichever method you choose you may be required to use the re-learn technique for the pass-key system. There are two vacuum hoses that go to a black box that need to be removed. There is a brass fitting that is holding a larger vacuum hose onto the manifold. There is a sensor that needs to be unplugged on the right side of the manifold. there are four bolts that hold the manifold down. there are 4 total and two are in the back of the manifold.

Now you should be ready to pull off the manifold. Make sure there are no more harnesses or sensors attached to the back of the manifold. It looks like there is one or 2 from the manual. Pull the manifold off and you will expose the coil pack. Unbolt it just like you did the front and pull the coil packs off to expose the rear spark plugs. Change your spark plugs and put everything back
If you require further assistance please feel free to let me know and i will be glad to assist you further. Thanks, Midwest-tek

Where the thermostat is located on a 1993 maxima

Usually in any vehicle the thermostat is underneath the fitting either on the engine manifold or the block that is attached to the TOP radiator hose. 1 clamp, 2 to 3 attaching bolts for the fitting, a gasket and the thermostat. Just make sure to clean the mating surfaces well and install an new gasket with the thermostat.

applies most any automotive engine......

How do you instile a new heater core and remove the old one.

Things You'll Need:
  1. Step 1 Remove the dashboard. The heater core in S10s is behind the main dashboard, and it must be removed to access the core. The front dash panel can be removed by unbolting several screws at the bottom of the panel, then pulling the panel away from the dash. Once this front panel is off, the primary dash can be unbolted from the firewall with four large bolts below the windshield. Several accessories may need to be taken out to unbolt the dash from the firewall, such as the radio or 4WD switches.
  2. Step 2 Drain the coolant from the core. There is a drain plug at the bottom right of the primary radiator that will empty the coolant system when unscrewed. Some residual coolant might remain in the core, but will come out when the core is taken out later.
  3. Step 3 Uncouple the core from the coolant lines. These hoses are directly behind the oil filler tube, and will come loose when squeezed with pliers. They are of different sizes, and it won't be necessary to mark them for later re-attachment.
  4. Step 4 Unbolt the core from its mounts behind the removed dash panel. Several bolts might be difficult to reach, but once free from the mounts, the core assembly slides up and out towards the interior of the truck. Lay a towel down when removing the core, as come coolant might splash out.
  5. Step 5 Insert the new heater core and bolt it into the mounts. The openings will fit into the holes provided in the firewall.
  6. Step 6 Reconnect the heater core hoses, and re-attach the dashboard and front panel.
  7. Step 7 Fill the coolant system with a 50/50 mix of antifreeze and water. Tighten the drain plug on the radiator, then fill it. Crank the truck up with the heater system on its maximum setting, and continue to pour coolant into the radiator until it will not take in any more.
