    Motorcycles are notorious for thread locker being used on handlebar objects. The easiest way to get bolts loose is to use heat.

SOURCE: Cant remove power steering pump.

Check for any hidden mounting bolts. There may be a rear mounting bolt. Make sure you have removed all mounting bolts. Recommend buying a Chilton's manual from Autozone.

SOURCE: pontiac montana oil pan bolt diagram for removal

If all the bolts are off, then the gasket is holding the oil pan in place and your going to have to tap it with a mallet, Not a hammer but a mallet so you don not damage the oil pan. Good luck and hope this helps.

Fuel gauge showing full but not full and temperature gauge showing hot but engine is not hot

if all these gauges are mounted in the same grouping and you have several gauges that sort of work but don't work correctly , id look at two things , corrosion of electrical connectors (back of gauge cluster) or more probable , a dash gauge voltage regulator that's defective , this tiny little gismo hangs off the back of gauge cluster and sort of looks like a metal box with two bolts or screws coming out of it , this item may take a little looking to find a new one , as none of my parts sources list one , but one does list a entire gauge cluster for 490 bucks , me id look for a used /good/old stock one

None of my gauges are working ion my dash

Intermittent gauges usually mean a bad ground connection for the gauges. Things to check: look for multiple ground connections at one screw to chassis frame & tighten it; check large connector at rear of instrument cluster for good connection; replace gauges fuse - it can be cracked. If none of those work, than instrument cluster circuit board will probably have to be replaced - which means removing the cluster.

2004 speed monitor indace cluster

If you experiencing issue with gauges not resetting, for example, speedometer shows speed above 120 mph while car standing still, it's quite common problem in 2004 Tahoes. You have few options:
- go to dealership and replace the cluster (a lot of money)
- search internet and find a shop to repair cluster. Since the problem is quite common, there are many options. Will cost much less then dealership
- if you are comfortable with soldering gun - buy replacement motors on Amazon, disassemble dashboard, remove cluster, replace motors. This is the cheapest option - about $35 and hour and a half of your time to replace all motors in cluster.
- last option is for people who don't like spending money (and fixing issue too), put car on emergency break, shift in gear, turn key to start engine. With every attempt gauges will reset by a bit. Repeat until gauges go all the way to zero.

My gauges just stop working,and they are frozen in one spot,the temp gauge still moves a little but not like its supposed to.and the dummy lights wont work but the turn signal lights work,also the light...

The gauges have a memory. They will stay where the last read was when you turn the key off and don't move until you turn the key back on. If something happened between the time you turned the key off and back on then they could be stuck in that last position.
Sounds like you may have a ground issue. The cluster uses a common ground. Maybe start by checking the ground wire under the dash that uses one of its mounting bolts in the corner.

The fans wont stay to cool the engine

Engine is supposed to be between 180 and 200 degrees, and the fans are supposed to go off under 200.
That is very close to boiling.
So what makes you think the fans should stay on?
Have you actually used a thermometer or does the gauge go too high?
If the fans ever go on, then we know the fans and relay work.
The next suspect would be the temperature sensor in the radiator.
But try turning on the AC. That should force the fans to stay on.

Check engine light does not turn on at all

The bulb is probably loose and/or burnt out. If you are mechanically inclined you can tackle this job... This procedure is the one i use, most often it's the blue high beam indicator bulb that goes so if you want to change it while your in there.....(hint hint)
Disconnect and isolate the battery negative cable. Wait a good 2 minutes to allow for air bag deactivation...NOTE: USE CAUTION ...Lower the tilt wheel to lowest position.
Remove the cluster bezel from the instrument panel.
Remove the two screws that secure the upper mounting tabs of the instrument cluster to the underside of the instrument cluster hood formation of the instrument panel top pad.
Remove the two screws that secure the lower mounting tabs of the instrument cluster to the instrument panel structural duct.
Pull the upper mounting tabs of the instrument cluster downward, then pull the instrument cluster rearward far enough to access the instrument panel wire harness connector for the instrument cluster. Disconnect the instrument panel wire harness connector for the instrument cluster from the connector receptacle on the back of the instrument cluster housing.
Remove the instrument cluster from the instrument panel. Now do you remember which bulb it was? You can now see where the check engine light bulb is mounted. Twist and remove, install in reverse order. In some cases they are just loose or not making good ground, but after going through this just to access that lil bugger, i'd replace it.
I hope i have helped you and if you feel i have please acknowledge.
Be well and keep the cherokees alive....

Gauges for 99 Pontiac Grand Am Not working right.

This is a ground problem. There are cluster grounds on the bolts that bolt the engine and trans together. You will have two of them one in the front under the front engine mounting bracket and one towards the back of the car almost right under the EGR. This is a common problem and requires a quite a bit of time to get to the two bolts to clean the connections on the grounding clusters. I ran into this problem after replacing my engine and it took me several hours before I finally found this problem. Good luck!

Speedometer not working

I would hold off on trying to buy a new or used instrument cluster unless your sure thats the problem.... your vehicle is equipped with a speed sending unit and that can be faulty ask your self is the other functions of the cluster working? tachometer, fuel, lights etc? then may only be sending unit for speed have it checked out by a pro or follow instructions of troubleshooting section of your repair manual I always try to keep it simple did you check the fuses and relays? then move on from there. If it is sending unit or cluster heres a place I have used for years to get hceap good used and new parts Peach street autorecycling 18003652341 ggod luck and dont forget to rate me if I have helped.

Replace passeger mirror on 2001 taurus

ok this is very simple.
1. On the inside of your door there is a plastic cover with what looks like a patch on it... pull the patch out.. now you will see on of two things either there will be a bolt there that you can undo to either take off the mirrior or the bolt will take off the cover.
from there once you have the cover off if thats what it took off than you should see at least 2 more bolts or screws holding the mirrior on... undo those and you should be good to go...
