Left turn signal only works sometime

It's likely that moisture intrusion over time has corroded the socket and/or the base of the bulb causing an intermittent open circuit.

Clean the socket with a small tubular shaped wire brush* and compressed air. Install a new bulb.

*The wire brush used to clean the inside of a 1/2" copper tube fittings prior to soldering. Hardware & Home Improvement stores have them.

How to repair broken clutch line

I just fixed one.There is a small pin that you can push out to remove the coupling that pushes into slave cyclider. Then you have to heat up silver soder or brazing that holds tube into square fitting that goes into slave. After removing do the opposite to braze in new tube. If you know were the line is bad cut it about 3 inches further away to make sure you have a good strong tube to splice from. You will need 2 compression fittings one to splice the one your adding and one for the original line. The fun part comes trying to bleed out air after its back together Takes at least 30 pumps between each opening of bleeder that's located on back of slave unit. And make sure that you never leave the resevour run low or dry on fluid while bleeding or your going to have to start over.You will need to keep adding fluid throughout bleeding process. Regular brake fluid is what is used for clutch. Good luck

What fittings doI need to cap the rear a/c lines going to the rear of the 2006 Town and Country? I have removed the evaporator and want to cap the lines on the van side near the rear wheel.

I had to cut the lines back from the fittings used to connect to the rear evaporator coil. You will find these to be a 3/8" and a 3/4" line. I used stainless steel fittings from my work as I could not find compression fittings at any of the box hardware stores.
