ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT A STUD OR A BOLT? THESE MOTORS HAS 4 LONG BOLTS THAT GO THRU THE TIMING COVER , IF THIS IS WHAT IS BROKEN THEN YOU WILL HAVE TO REMOVE THE COVER, THE BOLTS GET CORRODED IN THE COVER AND OFTEN BREAK. IF THIS IS THE CASE THE COVER WILL BE EXTREMELY DIFFICULT TO REMOVE AND WILL MOST LIKELY BE DESTROYED IN THE PROCESS. GOOD NEWS IS THE BOLT COMES OUT EASY ONCE YOU GET THE COVER OFF. GOOD LUCK, YOU ARE GOING TO NEED IT!!

I have a 2003 Ford Ranger 3.0 and I have an exhaust manifold bolt that has broken off inside the manifold,and the evaporator coil,and other AC parts are in the way .what options do i have on this


With the exhaust manifold off. If there is some of the bolt sticking out. You'll need a torch to heat the head up, red hot around the bolt. Also a pair of needle nose vise grips to grab it with and turn it out. You'll have to heat it several times to get out. No bolt showing, you best bet it to pull the head. Drill the bolt and extract it.

How do you change out a broken front wheel stud on a 1999 Isuzu Rodeo


if it is broken at a point where you can still grab hold of the stud partially try using a pair of vice grips and maybe even the boxed end of a longer wrench around one of the handles of the vice grip for added leverage. if it's broke off flush with the rotor you'll need a strong enough drill with a carbide tip and an easy out aka an extraction kit to back it out of the threads. A little bit of heat from a torch or some penetrating oil might help loosen it up as well. Just remember one or the other not both or you may need a fire extinguisher. good luck

How replace an oxygen sensor on a 1999 ford Explorer Eddie Bauer?


piece of cake depending on which one you are replacing

basically, just unplug the sensor and unscrew the sensor

they make a special socket for the job but if space is not an issue a pipe wrench works well

the tough part is the fact that they are usually rusted in there pretty good

lots of penetrating oil...(NOT wd-40 but something like PB Blaster) or a torch will make life easier

Whwn I try change thr thermodtst thr up bolt broke. Toyota Corolla 1990


yes they do that sometimes. water gets in the threads and causes rust and corrosion.
A professional mechanic will try to work that loose and even try to drill out the part that might be stuck in the intake manifold. You have to be really really careful not to get off center and you need a very very hard drill bit. if you are lucky part of it will still be sticking up when the thermostat housing is removed. You might be able to get some locking pliars on it and work it loose with some WD-40.
I have done all kinds of crazy things to get a grip on broken studs. I have even welded nuts onto them so I could get a good grip with a socket. spray them with solvent, tap them with a hammer, try to tighten then loosen back and forth till they come out. I'm not even going to mention what iv done with various heat sources. but a little supercold on the broken stud can help get that solvent down there.

Broken manifold bolts / manifold removal


Whatever it takes, but make sure you soak some penetrating oil oi wd40 on others to avoid any more being broken. Pulling the manifold is the safest and quickest way. With it out of the way, you'll have someting on the broken bots, now studs to work with. Always drill a broken stud or bolt clean through. Penetrating oil can work from both ends and a broken easy out can be driven in far enough to work arounf -Good Luck, force nothing, Tap stud and apply only stesdy even presure when extracting.
