Apparently there is an Oring. Use some lubricant to get it out. Spray i in the opening and gently pry it out. Going back and forth on different sides of it.

SOURCE: Towing capacity of a 1.8L Nissan Primera Station Wagon

1500Kg is more likely to be the maximum towing weight.

You should, in theory, be able to launch and recover a boat/trailer of this combined weight ok, but in practise you need to consider how slippery the ramp is and if your front wheel drive vehicle will be able to cope with it.

Use a long strop attached to the trailer and looped around the towing hitch, to launch and recover the boat, so your car stays well away from the water.

You could have some problems getting enough grip with your front wheel drive, when recovering a boat.

I have had to recover my boat from a rocky beach when I couldn't get it back to the launch ramp because of bad weather. I was very thankful that I had a four wheel drive car for that.

What ever you do, ALWAYS plan carefully exactly how you are going to do the launch or recovery and make sure you stop and think about it before doing it.

Regards, Andy

Where is the orifice tube on an expedition 2001 with dual ac


On most any Ford vehicle, the orifice tube is hidden directly in the pressure line just before it goes into the evaporator core (the little radiator looking device hidden underneath your dash). There should be a quick disconnect where the lines go together by the accumulator. The orifice tube will be wedged in the aluminum line. If you look closely, you will actually be able to see an indentation in the aluminum line that prevents the orifice tube from slipping too far into the aluminum line. The orifice tube on a Ford almost ALWAYS requires the use of an orifice tube removal tool. Hope this helps.

Get engine air filter out and install new.


Step 1 Unfasten wire harness to MAF (massive air flow) sensor located on top of the black tube leading from the air box to the plenum.
  • Step 2 Unplug the vacuum line located on top of the black tube. This simply pops in and out so you might need to be forceful, but apply common sense since it's a plastic vacuum line.
  • Step 3 Loosen band clamp with the screw driver at the top of the black tube that is attached to the aluminum air chamber that run to the plenum. Also, loosen the other band clamp located at the bottom of the tube closest to the air box. The idea is to remove this tube with the MAF sensor intact in between. Do not remove the band clamps, simply loosen them enough to wiggle off the tube and move it out of the way.
  • Step 4 Unclip both fasteners at the top of the air box and pull out and up to remove air box cover. Remove old air filtermag-glass_10x10.gif and if there's a good deal of dust and debris inside the air box, you could wipe it out with a rag or even vacuum it out with a shop vacuum.
  • Step 5 Insert new filter and replace air box cover. Make sure the retaining tabs are locked in at the bottom correctly. Refasten top locking clips to air box cover.
  • Step 6 Reinstall air tube making sure to replace top part back on correctly to aluminum air chamber. Not properly reinstalling this air tube will result in the computer of the car throwing a check engine code. On the bottom of the black air tube is a small tab and if tube is replaced properly should line up in a notch molded into the air box cover. Tighten band clamps with screw driver and reconnect wire harness and plug plastic vacuum line back in.

    Driver side wiper arm flops around freely since I turned on wipers while they were stuck to the window after a freeze. Is the maintenance easy or should i go to a mechanic?


    I see that this is an old thread, but for the benefit of those who end up here in the future:
    cudaman may be correct, but more likely, you may simply need to replace the wiper arm. There is an excellent YouTube clip on this simple repair below.

    How do you replace thermostat


    Mr. Lakewood,
    The thermostat is in the housing at the end of the top radiator hose where it connects to the engine manifold. The thermostat housing is clamped onto the hose and is bolted to the engine manifold by two bolts.
    1. Drain enough coolant from the cooling system to a level below the height of the thermostat housing.
    2. Remove the two bolts and separate the housing from the manifold.
    3. Remove the thermostat from the engine. You may have to pry it out if it is stuck. (Don't be alarmed if there is no thermostat. Some mechanics remove them for troubleshooting).
    4. Scrape off the old gasket and sealant from the housing and the manifold.
    5. Install new thermostat, pointy side towards radiator.
    6. Use Permatex #2 (non-hardening sealant) on both sides of the new gasket and bolt down the housing.
    7. Replenish cooling system.
    8. Start engine, allow to warm up and check for leaks.
    9 *done*

    The Permatex #2 gasket sealant ($4 AutoZone) is in a small tube. One small tube is more than enough.

    Where would the thermostat be located on a 2000 pontiac Montana van


    hi....
    It is actually buried under the air cleaner.
    first remove the air cleaner tube, throttle body, the thermostat is just below the throttle body in the aluminum cast housing. two bolts to remove, one was easy the other was a real $%&^!!. It is behind the exhaust cross over tube. Good luck. TIP - use WD-40 on the air cleaner tubing to get it to go back on the Throttle body. It isn't as easy as changing a thermostat sounds.

    if you are satisfied with my solution then rate for me......
    thank you...

    Two hoses that are hard to disconnect. the last two thats holding it together. how to disconnect them on my 1998 chevy suburban


    What two hoses?
    1.Some sort of cooling system hose? Such as the two that go to the heater core? See how much slack you have in the hose, and cut the hose off, right after the outlet tube it attaches to. If there is enough slack you can remount the hose. Use finesse to remove the stuck piece of hose.

    If the example IS the heater core, the heater core is made of brass, or aluminum, (<-Not likely), and you can easily damage it's hose outlet tubes. Careful cut along the side, and try to Not go deep enough, to scratch the outlet tube. Peel back one edge with your fingers, and grab it with a pair of pliers. Try to twist the hose. Again, use finesse. Do not twist so tight that you crimp the outlet tube! Work around the hose on the tube. Eventually you will get it broke loose, where you can twist it off of there.

    2.Radiator hose? Same thing applies here as listed above. I HAVE used a flat tip screwdriver to get under the edge of the hose, then worked my way around the hose edge. This helps break it loose from the water pump, or radiator, to where you can twist the hose, and twist it off. Using a flat tip screwdriver in conjunction with a brass or aluminum radiator, is ->NOT SMART!
    I used the finesse of a surgeon operating on a heart, took my time, and sweated bullets!

    2002 pontiac grand prix gt AC only blows hot air compressor full of freon and clutch spinning good temp control actuators working corectly narrow ac tube at firewall very cold thicker ac tube at firewall...


    i had same problem 2 years ago. the actuator door tube was snapped in half and i used acquarium tubing to splice together. The tube runs along the passenger front well well inside engine and meets under the battery carriage. I could not tell anything was wrong without removing the battery to get a closer look. works like a champ now.

    Also: there is also an inline venturi filter that fits in the aluminum tubing on the compressor, it may be clogged. You will have to have the freon sucked out to replace the filter. Check back with me so I can help more if this doesnt solve your problem.
