How do I fix extensive rusting under my 2003 nissan pathfinder, I am really worried, please what do I do?

There is a paint on rust converter . You paint it on the rust and it turns it back into metal . After that i would spray the rubberized under coating to protect it.

How to change fuel pump 1999 Saturn sl1

You need to drop your gas tank, first un clamp filler hose fro underneath, and vent hose. Undo the two gas tank straps and wiggle tank down around the exhaust system. Once on the ground you will see a small ring around the hoses going into the sending unit, being very careful to not get dirt in the tank. Sending unit should pop out . The fuel pump is bolted onto the sending unit. You un plug the 2 wires going to it and the bolts holding it on, and replace the opposite way good luck

Hi I have a 1981 280se w126 and it has severe rust in the lip of the boot/trunk (big holes) this expensive to fix/replace? Also the metal panel underneath that area on the inside of the trunk is...

Considering your car is only worth $5,000 in great shape, I don't think it is worth repairing a rusted out frame and under body. If it was a 72, I would say yes, but 81, ahh, My brother used to restore cars, I saw what he went through, buying and selling his cars, He stopped buying rust buckets, if they had one spec of rust, he didn't touch it, there are plenty of rust free cars out there, And repairing rust is a nightmare, your Mercedes is not like a Chevy where they have every panel in stock ready to weld in, You would need to hire a body man full time for a year to get those panels fixed back up, and get it done on the frame??? Forget it, the frame is probably shot. Painting the undercarriage will take most of your money, you will never get it back out of the car. Hope this helps.

Most fuel pumps are electric nowadays. Often, they are located within the fuel tank itself, though some models of cars may have 2 pumps.

Locate your fuel pump. If it is in the fuel tank there is usually a circular inspection cover held down with screws.

Disconnect your battery (but remember the radio code will have to be reinstalled..)
Undo the screws.
Make a note of the coloured wires and which connections they go to. Undo the wires.

Different cars have different fittings to attach the fuel pump. You will need a wrench or two to undo/disconnect the fuel line and pump retaing bolts.

Again, with an in-tank fuel pump, it is easily lifted out. It is not a big or difficult job. What you see in front of you will be self-explanatory.

Other locations for an electric fuel pump:
Close to the fuel tank
Underneath the car (just follow the fuel line from the engine..)
In the engine bay.

Years ago I owned a VW Golf Estate (think they're called station wagons in the States..). The fuel pump was in-tank beneath an inspection cover. It was very easy to change.

You will be able to do the job within an hour, irrespective where the pump is. Just remember to disconnect that battery first ...

2002 mitsubishi montero heater only works with the switch on high.

Most likely blower resistors (which controls the speeds of fan) needs to be replaced. Located underneath dashboard in passanger leg compartment. don't have Mitsu part # but the part itself about $20-30 and 5 min to replace. Lay down on passanger floor, look up underneath dashboard, you will see 4 wire connector. unplug it, undo 2 screws and pull the part out. you can run resistance or continuity check between 3 routes. the reason why it only works on high, is that it gets full current bypassing resistors (blown most likely in your case).
If you see water or rust in the area - that's what caused the resistor to blow. if that's the case, your AC drain (located on firewall in between the banks) is plugged you need to take care of it first.
Hope this helps.

Is it the power steering pump or the line that's leaking?

Stop driving it before you ruin the pump or steering rack. Replace any leaking hoses, flush the system with correct fluid and fill.

How do I change the alternator belt in my 1999 Excel (list did not have the year)?

hi mate,your problem is fairly easy to fix-----remove the plastic under tray on the drivers side,from underneath, undo the main alternator bolt,just enough to move the alternator, now from the top undo the belt tension adjustment locking bolt,then back off the tension adjuster itself until the alternator belt is loose and can slip off the pulleys-----fitting your new belt is the reverse to this. all the best.
