2 electric fans from pc in intake tube.....

I have 2 small box fans (pc fans) they are both rated for 12v. what i want to know is: if i took those 2 fans, wired them into my car and place them in the air-intake tube of my car if they will create a lil bit of horsepower? even if its a 1%-2% increase. ive heard of these electric superchargers that are based on the same idea but im unsure if these fans produce enough air movement to make a difference. any help?

I don't think those fans will have enough air flow to gain any kind of power. Check on line to see what king of air volume those electric superchargers put out. I don't think it will be worth the effort.

Fan will not come on by itsself. Where is the coolant sensor located?

coolant temp sensor is usually located on the radiator. also check fan fuse, fan relay (in fuse box and relay box), and intake air temp sensor (thats usually on the intake tubing before throttle after Mass air flow sensor)(can be check with diag scan tool specific for that vehicle). if the fan is on a belt, check the fan belt and check for rotted or broken wires going to the fan motor.

Code po456?

The code po456 is leak in the evaporative emissions system.
First thing to check is for a poorly installed fuel fill cap

or try the following

1. Loosten the worm clamps that connect the air box hose to the intake.
2. Remove the bolt holding the air box to the radiator support.
3. Remove the small hose that comes off the front of the air box and goes from the air box to under the intake, I beleive this is the AIR tube.
4. Remove the AIT sensor from the intake hose.
5. Pull up on the air box.

Once removed set the air box a side. Locate the two lines that are wrapped in flex loom and tied to each other that go under the air box. They go from the solenoid that is mounted right next to the horn, behind the right headlight, to the rear of the vehicle. Locate a small 2" rubber hose that connects the front line to the rear line under the air box. Most likely this small hose that connects the two lines has a crack in it because it has been stressed from being stretched over a metal tube. If you replace this, it should fix your 'small leak'.

Reset the code by disconnecting the ground to the battery for a few minutes.

Hope this helps

Where is the drainedge for the radioter

For a 2001 Buick Regal GS 3.8 Liter, Supercharged engine:

First, let engine cool some. Second, locate small drainage hole at the bottom left/drivers side, of the radiator. From the bottom of this small drain hole, go straight back toward rear of radiator, then up about 1 1/2 to 2 inches up. (Have a drain pan or pail handy, to catch the old antifreeze.) You'll find a dark colored drain nut. Use a larger, correct sized socket ratchet wrench & loosen this fitting a turn or so, counter clockwise. Old antifreeze will begin to come out the bottom drain hole. The more you loosen the fitting, the faster the fluid flow out. I wouldn't remove the drain plug completely, or you'll loose control of the draining flow rate.

I just changed my anti-freeze just last week. I also changed the 2 large radiator hoses & smaller 2' overflow hose at the same time, as long as I was doing the job. They had never been changed before. I also used new hose clamps & a small packet of "radiator hose grease", from Autozone.. I drove the car up onto front car ramps to make it easier. I used safety jack stands for extra care. " You-Tube" shows some, "how to videos", that are helpful.

The old hose clamps are difficult to get to. (You'll need a few tools, some time & patience.) To get to the upper clamp, near the right/passenger side of the of the car, near the battery, I removed the outer serpentine belt & tension pully. I then removed the factory installed spring tension clamp, with the help of an adjustable battery pliers. The bottom of this hose wasn't too bad to get to. On the left/drivers side of car, remove black air intake box to access upper clamp. Remove the black metal brace bar, the will allow access to the air intake black box.

I also changed the small overflow 2 foot long hose & 2 clamps, that goes from radiator cap area, back to the overflow white plastic tank, close to passenger firewall. I removed the overflow tank to clean it out as well. I drained the fluid & changed the 3 hoses & clamps. I then placed all removed parts back where they belong, including white plastic overflow tank, tension pully & outer serpentine belt, air intake black box & metal diagonal brace, contacting air intake box. I flushed the system with some Prestone Radiator Cleaner & clean water. Start car & get up to temp., then run for about 10 minutes. Let cool, then drain again. I flushed my car at least 2-3 times after this, until the drain water ran clear.

The best price on a 5 year/150,000 mile anti freeze, came from Wal-Mart. I then mixed about 50/50 with Distilled water, as suggested on the bottle. All went well & no leaks! I took my time and did a thorough job. Good luck!

I have a 2002 Buick Rendezvous that is overheating, then cooling down, then overheating again. It seems that when I'm on the highway it cools, but local streets, it heats up. I've changed the thermostat...

I ahd the same issue and just had to bleed the air out of the system. Use the bleeder valve on the top of the intake tube, you cant miss it. Stat your car and open that valvethe air/steam will start to come out. Keep that open until you get coolant flowing out of there and then close it. Took me about 5 min. and heat works fine. Please rate my answer to let me know if that was any help. Thanks

Need to know where the crankshaftpositionsensor is located on a 2005 stratus 2.4lt engine

I am assuming your Stratus is a Sedan with the DOHC 4-cylinder engine. If so this might help. Do you know where your PCV valve is? (The PCV valve is on the driver-side of the engine up close to the top. It is a little black plastic cylinder with a vacuum tube coming out that goes up to the air intake fairing up near the fan.) The CSPS is right below the PCV valve. It has an electrical connecter with a little red release clip where the wires plug in. The sensor is about 3-4 inches wide and shaped like a rounded diamond with a raised circle in the middle. It is held on by 2 small bolts. I hope this helps.
