Check eng light on a 1998 buick century coad p7053 12 shift solenoid . IS IT EXT PART OR INT PART , HOW EASY IS THE REPAIR?

The shift solenoids are mounted to the valve body which is behind the side cover of the transmission. Usually you have to lower the trans to remove the side cover, which envolves lowering the subframe. If you drop the subframe the steering rack must be disconnected and the engine must be held from above because most of the motor/trans mounts are on the subframe

There was a big Recall on Subframes with notifications going out to select States. The recall is 98V323000. I had a subframe come apart while driving. The Recall took care of everything including Towing. However, with the dropping of the cradle, my A/C lines were damaged and they would not cover that.

The exact problem was rust would reduce the diameter of the washer and the rubber mounts would slip out. I know I lost parts on the road, so the Dealer must have that stuff in the Recall kit. They will need to run the Vin#. The Recall was in 1998.

And the lines to disconnect, The hard part will be getting it out. Most can be manouvered out either side, But theres a chance you may have to drop the subframe.

The best way to take out an engine of a 2002 Cadillac Eldorado

u have to drop the sub frame . meaning the transmission and motor gotta come together. unblot the torque strut located on top of the raditor and motor. unbolt strut towers. unbolt drive axles . use a large screw driver and a hammer and tapp out drive axles (cv joint). unblot subframe (slowly) . unbolt the rear part of subframe first so u can get to steering gear. and remove the shaft from the steering gear. and that should be it. also if doing this without a lot of shop equipment. u are gonna need alot of jack stands and jacks to do this job.

If you have a wet seat then it is likely defective weather stripping around the window.

Try this. If the floor is dry, then it rains and the floor remains dry, only gets wet after a drive in the rain or on wet streets, you may have a hole somewhere.

Check for holes from missing rubber grommets or holes in the floorboard or firewall from rust. Check for any rust holes or missing rubber grommets under the car or on the firewall, anywhere water can splash up into the vehicle from driving in rain or running through puddles..

Check wet spots along the carpeting all the way up under the dash, if the wet spot is higher than the floor itself, you could be getting the water from splashing through puddles.

Any holes under the car or in the fenderwell even up on the firewall can cause this problem.

First check for any obvious signs of rust, if none are found then look for missing or defective rubber grommets.

Steering Rack boot replacement

In my opinion, removing the front subframe makes this job much easier.

Jack up and suitably support the front of the car so it is in a wheels free state.
With wheels removed;

  • Remove the anti-roll bar drop links from the anti-roll bar
  • Free off the lower arm ball joints off
  • Remove the track rod ends from the swivel hubs
  • Remove the nut and bolt and special clip on the lower steering column universal joint
  • loosen off and disconnect the feed and return pipes to the power ram (beware stinking power steering fluid pouring everywhere!)
Steering and suspension wise, the subframe should be free!

  • Remove the nut and bolt that secures the lower engine mounting to its bracket (the bolt that goes through the big round rubber mount at the back of the engine)
  • Disconnect all relevant gear linkage rods (this will be clear when you are under there!)
  • Support the subframe with a jack or somesuch and free off the 6, 18mm bolts that secure the subframe to the body shell.
  • remove all subframe mounting bolts.
  • lower the jack that is supporting the subframe, it should all drop quite nicely and then get stuck on the steering column universal joint! A good old college shove frees this and then you should be able to remove your subframe assembly from under the car.

Cant remove power steering rack

The racks are a bit tough on these cars since theyre on the subframe. a lot of extensions and a swivel will help it come off the subframe but hate to break it to you : you will need to drop the entire subframe to pull off the steering rack. The subframe holds the motor and suspension. Its odd though that you need to remove the rack. Perhaps the rack isnt an issue. Can you post up what your issue is?
