The heater lines that run to the back of the right rear side gets rusty and start to leak anti-freeze. There is a black cover under and above the RR tire that has to be removed so u can see.

Yes, that was too much. The neutral safety switch costs around $70 (if I remembered right). I bought it from my Mazda dealer and asked them for a diagram to locate it. In most cases, my Mazda dealer has been helpful in provide diagrams for this minivan. The switch is located underneath the battery (you'll have to remove it) on the transmission. Make sure it is aligned right when you replace the switch; otherwise it won't find neutral, and you'll have to use the bypass switch on top of the steering column to start you engine.

SOURCE: Where is the bank 2 o2 sensor located on a 2004

bank 2 is the cylinder in the front of the engine compartment near the radiator, the O2 is either in the exhaust manifold of the bank or in the exhaust pipe off the manifold, round about the size of a jumbo magic marker, you need a special O2 sensor socket to remove it in some cases, if it is in the open then a 7/8 open end wrench will work.

SOURCE: how do I replace alternator in mazda mpv 2000?

Typically an alternator is an easy fix. It requires removal of the belt from the engine running it, and a few bolts that attach it to the engine.

Because of the engineering with the 2000 mpv, it is a very difficult fix, and one that requires removal of the transaxle and exhaust manifold, as well as removal of the lower engine mounts. It will take a qualified Mazda mechanic 3.5 hours to do the fix - you can (at least) triple that amount of time as a DIY project (assuming you have the right tools).

Where is the oil drain plug on a 2002 BMW 325i

It is located on the oil pan, please be advised the oil pan is also the casting that houses the front differential, and the engine oil drain is the hex nut furthest to the rear of of the pan . You will need a 17mm wrench to remove the hex nut . After you drain the oil, DO NOT over tighten the plug . The proper torque is 25 newton/meters or about 20 foot/pounds

Help me with removing my oil pan

I highly recommend having a torque wrench at your disposal to perform this procedure. Hondas go forever if you take care of them, a torque wrench is a small investment (and some auto parts stores will loan/rent them to you).

According to the manual (for the 1998 - the 1996 is probably the same) you will first need to remove the transmissioin/engine stiffener. This is a piece that transverses from the engine to transmission and is held in place by 4 bolts.

After that you remove the existing oil pan.

You must scrape off any residue or remaining gasket from the engine block - you can do that with a putty knife. Be careful not to scratch/gouge the surface. Then clean the surface of the engine block.

Get a new pan and gasket. Use gasket seal (Honda part # 08718-0001 ir 0718-0003) to afix the gasket to the pan. According to the manual, after affixing the gasket you should use additional gasket seal at both of the short ends of the (more or less) rectangular outline of the pan/gasket (including the rounded corners) and then put them on to the block (do this within 5 minutes of applying the gasket seal). The manual indicates you should hand tighten six bolts - the ones at the corners of the short ends of the rectangle, and the ones right in the middle of the long ends. When these are hand tight you will insert and hand tighten the other bolts. Then increasingly tighten the bolts starting with the one most directly under the oil filter. Work from that bolt clockwise, gradually increasing the tightness of the bolts until you reach a torque of 8.7 foot pounds.

If you don't do this correctly you will warp the pan, so be careful.

Once completed you should refasten the engine stiffener. The bolts going to the engine side should be tightened to 17 foot pounds, the bolts to the transmission side should be tightened to 33 foot pounds.

You should be done, but the manual says to wait 30 minutes prior to adding oil.

Good luck!
