SOURCE: got a fuel leak on my pajero from the braided fuel

I would recommend using factory (or similar) parts on these. These hoses have a flared typed fitting for proper seal.
I hope this may have helped,

SOURCE: Had a slight transmission leak,went under and

No, the remote oil line hose needs to be replaced. There is an easier fix to this other then replacing the remote oil line. Just to make sure were on the same page, the transmission line has no rubber line and is a one piece metal line from the transmission to the radiator on the passenger side. The remote engine oil line is on the drivers side and is rubber and goes to the radiator and remote oil filter housing. That is the hose that is common to leak at the factory compression clamp where the rubber hose connects to the metal line. The factory compression clamp can be cut off and just place the rubber hose or replace the oil line and replace the compression clamp. Make sure it's a compression clamp and not a hose clamp, the compression clamp has a better all round clamping force to the hose and less to fail then the hose clamps. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to answer any questions you may have and NAPA or Auto Zone will have all the parts you need to get the job done.

SOURCE: how to replace heater hose bypass fitting on 03 impala

You need to buy the fittings first they are sold by a company called HELP motormite. Very common to go bad. You will need to buy or borrow springlock tool. Are sold seperately or in a set. What they are is a garter spring that will disconnect quick connector on fittings. The parts store will have them too.

Replaceing high pressure power steering hose on 1978 chevy trk.where exactly do the o rings go?

On each end of hose, metal ends, just below nut. There is a small indent for the O-rings. Make sure the old O-rings are not still in the pump and gear box fittings.

Braided Metal covered ones. They make rubber hoses that are covered in a braided stainless steel outer sheath. The are used for mostly commercial apps and are very expensive. Try a hydraulic hose fabrication business to find the hose or search on line, expect to spend about $100.00

67chevrolet6cly,low compression 2cly,oil blowing out oilcap,is it piston rings or vales

You need to have a basic leak down test done through the spark plug fitting in each cylinder to see where the compression is going.

For each cylinder, set the piston at Top Dead Center.
  • Hook the tester hose directly into the spark plug hole.
  • Hook the leak down tester up to the compressed air hose and zero the pressure.
  • Hook the tester to the hose and take your reading.
You can check where the pressure is going for that particular cylinder by listening for where the air is escaping.
  • If you remove the oil cap and hear a lot of air escaping, the rings are worn and that's where your compression loss is.
  • If you hear it coming out of the intake, the intake valve isn't sealing.
  • If you hear it coming out the tail pipe, the exhaust valve is leaking.
  • If you take the radiator cap off and see air bubbles coming out, you have a combustion leak into the cooling system.

    So have the test carried out on each cylinder and you can pin point the issue in each of the 2 which have tested bad with low compression.

Handbrake adjustment please

The high pressure hose I replaced takes a 11/16 flare wrench and it is a royal pain to get to had to pull the shroud off the radiator . The other end I had to remove a small line with a half in wrench and use the 11/16 flare wrench to remove it off the rack. There also was a clamp in the middle to hold it against the engine . I replaced my rack earlier but the o rings inside the compression style fittings degraded and would not allow the fitting on the rack end to seat. I tried all kinds of McGyver style fixes and ended up just replacing the high pressure hose with new o rings pre installed . Cost 38 bucks time priceless. It took 2 hours Jacking up removing the fan shroud and replacing the hose and reinstalling everything .It was worth it though I saved 200 bucks.

Need instructions on how to install rear air shocks on a 1965 Cheverolet truck

Reasonably easy to install. Remove the old shocks and replace them with the air shocks. Place the hose fittings where they won't run into anything. Attach the hoses and run them to the rear bumper. attach both lines to the "t" fitting supplied in the hose kit. find a hole in the underside of the rear bumper (or drill one) and mount the "t".Fill the shocks to around 40psi and check all your connections with soapy water to make sure they don't leak. Secure the lines to the chassis so they don't hang down and you are finished! One note. The fittings do not need to be super tight. the small "o" rings in the kit are pretty fat and usually seal pretty well hand tight. On a truck, generally you don't need to jack it up to do the job. If you do, take care not to raise it so far the wheels hang as the rear can drop when you disconnect the shocks.
It won't fall out but even a drop of several inches can hurt if your head is under there!!

2000 dakota sport leaks power steering fluid where high pressure line connects to pump. i have replaced the o ring and it slowed it down but did not stop it. I have replaced the o ring twice. What next?

Try some teflon tape on threaded end of hose where o ring went. Also look closely at compression fitting where hose and metal crimp meets, they can leak there. Have seen that on occasion.

I have to replace a height control 'tube' on my 07 Sequoia. Part number is 48982-34010. Muffler shop guy burned a hole through it. My question is if that replacement tube is threaded at both ends? Can it...

If you are talking about a ride height air supply line, generally there is a small "o" ring that goes on the hose and it is compressed by the fitting. To get a good idea of how yours is designed, since it's inoperative right now, just remove the fitting and take a look at what's there. Generally, when you buy the new part, any "sacrificial" parts such as a ferrule (if used instead of an "o" ring) will be included.

1990 318i engine no compression yet timing chain ok cam and lifters working pistons going up and down has spark 0 compression wont start

I suggest you bring the pistons to TDC, one at time on the comprssion stroke and do a "cylinder leakage test". Put compressed air into the spark plug hose and try to detect where the air is going. If you have the piston exactly at TDC, it will stay there when you put conpressed air in the hole, if it's off a little it will push the piston down. If you have the valve cover off you can watch the valves to determine if you have the pistons on the compression stroke. You should be able to buy a fitting from an auto parts store that will thread into the spark plug hole. If not take an old spark plug and bust the guts out of it and weld a pipe fitting to it to adapt your air compressor hose.

95 Geo Tracker AC line

Question: Is fitting leaking at the compressor or at the rubber hose end.

If leaking at the compressor hard line fitting. Try replacing "o"ring.
If leaking at the rubber hose end. Remove line and take to a HVAC shop that can replace "barrier hose (rubber hose using your fittings)

Any repair will require discharging the system.

I have a 94 tracker with hoses leaking. I would recommend replacing the rubber hose sections on both suction and liquid lines at the same time. You will have to discharge the system for either repair.
I would also recommend replacing all "o" rings accessible at this time along with a receiver dryer.

I work in the Auto parts sales for a large after market parts supply company and have found that hoses are not available from anybody, including a dealer for my 94 tracker. The system is very expensive to repair if you can find parts.

Hope this will help.
