Where do i find the vin numbers on a ford 1977 f 700 flatbed

At the front of the engine block. This should be easy to spot by popping open the hood, and looking at the front of the engine.At the front of the car frame, near the container that holds windshield washer fluid.At a rear wheel well. Try looking up, directly above the tire.Inside the driver-side doorjamb. Open the door, and look underneath where the side-view mirror would be located if the door was shut.At the driver-side doorpost. Open the door, and look near the spot where the door latches, not too far from the seatbelt return.Underneath the spare tire.

RE: 1991 Mercedes Benz 500SL... when I put gas in the tank it doesnt leak until I start the car & then it leaks profusely underneath the rear passenger side.

Hi there. The reason it only leaks when you turn the car on is because the gas tank is pressurized, but only after the car has had a chance to pressurize the tank (when the car is turned on). To fix this, you need a new gas tank! Alex

Where is the fuel filter on an 05-06 sunfire?

your fuel filter is located up next to your gas tank very easy to see once you are up underneath the rear of the car.

2003 suburban passenger side carpet gets wet when it rains

Just fixed the same issue on our 2004 Suburban. Turned out it was just that the drain for the rear A/C was clogged with dirt (located right behind right rear tire -- above the exhaust pipe). All it took was a paperclip, straightened out, poking gently in this narrow rubber ****... and the water came gushing out (floor was wet at the time). If you do it when the floor is dry, you would have to turn on the rear A/C for a while and make sure the condensate drips out of the drain.

Strange Coolant leak

this most likely means that you have a leak in a hose somewhere between your engine and the radiator, when you open up the rad cap it lets the leak breath causing it to gush out, go to napa and buy a replacement radiator hose it shouldn't cost but a few dollars and that should fix your problem.

Fuel is dripping around the passenger side rear tire.

I hope you've already got this fixed by now, but just in case... I have a 1996 Olds 88 which was leaking gas under the right rear door. Turns out there's a fuel filter mounted there, and the hose fitting on it was broken. The filter had to be replaced.
