Radiator leaking

When a radiator starts springing leaks its time to replace. You can try rad weld or similar hole plugging solutions, and they work quite well too, but it won't last long. Sometimes, if you can actually see the leak, it can be soldered shut. If it's hard to see leak then maybe get new rad.

Replace right rear quarterpanel

replacing a quarter panel is no easy task. it is spot welded all around the perimeter. To do it properly you will need to remove the rear window, the quarter glass, the trunk lid, rear panel, tail light, bumper cover, rear wheel, and inner wheel panel liner. every spot weld found will need to be cut, but only thru the outer panel. You do not want to cut all of the way thru both panels as you need to have something to attach the new panel to. After all welds are cut, there are welds under where the back window and quarter window go, and there are also welds in the sail panel that is between the quarter and rear windows where the quarter meets the roof panel. After all welds are cut and cleaned up you will want to cover all bare metal with a zinc based primer. You will want to drill holes all around the perimeter of the new panel and attach it to the vehicle with clamps or self tapping screws temporarily until you weld the new panel in place. You will want to fill in the holes you drilled in the new panel welding to the panel underneath. once all is attached you can remove the clamps or tap screws, if you used screws weld these holes as well, then grind everything smooth. finish up with a bit of body work especially at the sail panel where it meets the top, prime, sand, and now you might be ready for a trip to the paint shop.

How to fix rust holes on roof of 1987 caprice classic?

Are these the only rust areas on the roof?How big are they?If there are any other rust areas tap them with a hammer to make sure the roof is solid.Small areas can be cut out and welded with a metal patch,if it's larger areas it's easier and better to re skin the roof.

Need to know how to remove hood hinges that have factory welded or glued to firewall, 1993 ford ranger?

Most are spot welded into place. The only way to do it is to cut them out, using a grinder to remove the spot welds as best as possible then removing the hinge with a dead blow hammer, or use a metal chisel to help dislodge it the rest of the way

Leaking differential fluid. what could of made a hole in transfer case.appears to be on top side of differential. if so how do i repair it.

Hello, broken gear teeth can make holes in the case or if you were off-roading something could have hit it. If you are not the original owner, a flying front driveshaft could have knocked a hole in it.

Biggest problem I would worry about is a loose part inside the case. If there is a pan or drainplug, take it off and see if more than fluid comes out. JB Weld is good for sealing something like this. Depending on the metal, you can even weld Aluminum now. There are products for heating cast metal now too.

If the area is larger than a quarter, and you decide to try JB- Weld, clean off the sides and sand the finish to bond the chemical. Then gradually work the hole smaller with additional JB until the hole is sealed.

I bought daihatsu charade cs model 88..the radiator have large hole..but its not leaking..n still drive the car..any possible might got problem if i keep the old radiator n using the car?

if the rad starts to leak then yes,,keep a close watch on the water level in the rad,,"not in the header tank"
if the rad starts to leak it wont pull water out of the header tank,, keep an eye on the engine temp when driving it,,,also put some rad weld or rad seal in the rad now, that should stop it from ever leaking,,

Make sure the bolts for the slider are tight, the two on the door and the one on the body. If these are OK, then pull back the rubber boot on the body and if you see the metal is broken, then you need to have a body shop repair the broken spot welds. If the metal looks OK, then the door stay (slider) will need to be replaced.

Good Luck!
