My 2006 F 150 washer hose is broke. How do I replace it?


Hi connie well theres two things we can do first if you can see where it's broken a quick fix for you would be to get a small vacuum fitting that's the same size and put it back together or follow the hose and put a new one in from the washer motor on the bottom of the washer fluid bottle and follow it to the wiper arms or the spray nozzles in the cowl by the wiper arms thats the grill looking metal at the wipers

1994 lower control arm broke at balljoint


What brand of car? Some brands have after market heavy duty replacements that are made from heavy duty tubing instead of the sheet metal pressings typical for factory parts.. We have seen them that failed due to the fact that pivot bushings wore completely through and into the pressed sheet metal that had been holding the bushings, and the wear through the sheet metal was progressing rapidly toward failure. Check all the other front end control arm components for similar progressive wear out. This kind of thing can be dangerous. It usually will give brake steer in inconsistent directions before failure.

Transmission wont shift out first gear


You'll need to jack up the car. Crawl underneath after blocking the wheels and follow the shifting arms to the transmission. You may find one of the shifting forks didn't return to the neutral position, and/or one of the cotter pins on one of the arms fell off/broke. Manually moving the arms back and forth, find the center position ( if they are still connected). There may also be a plastic bushing that broke/fell off, and the arms cannot move far enough to disengage the gear.If the problem is a missing cotter, you can get that from most auto parts stores. if it is a bushing, you may have to get that from the dealer.
Hope this helps!

98 jetta wolfsburg. Clip that hold cable to arm broke. When replacing the clip I had to jack up the clutch arm with a bottle jack to hook up the cable. The cable will not let the arm drop down where it...


It has a plastic Ratchet style gear at the pedal end of the cable that has to be released. This gear automatically adjust the clutch when the pedal is pressed. Never put a jack against a clutch arm. You will probably have to disengage the cable to reset the ratchet gear. Don't strip the teeth on the gear

Rear wiper quit on 2003 S-10 blazer. checked wires and they look ok. fuses are also good.


Good chances are that the motor has gone bad and will need to be replaced. It's a common thing for the rear wipers to stop working,

You can try this first if you got time:
Take the rear hatch apart (screws, spring clips, inner panel screws (12), etc) to get to the wiper motor. Close investigation, the gear box attached to the motor can be opened up. The motor obviously works since it chatters so something else is not working, makes sense. Opened up the gear box, the motor shaft drives a worm drive gear (plastic) that meshes with a gear wheel (plastic) that has an eccentric cam (metal) on the gear wheel that attaches to a metal arm that meshes with another metal gear arm that is attached to a long shaft that passes through the hatch door and terminates with the finely spline end of the shaft (where the wiper attaches to). As the eccentric cam turns around the gear wheel, the metal arm moves back and forth thus creating the wiper effect. Lot of action in a small space,(pretty cool actually). My basic philosophy is that if something can be assembled, it should be able to be DIS-ASSEMBLED (in theory anyway). So fiddling with the thing eventually led me to the conclusion that if you put the wiper nut on the end of the wiper shaft and gently tapped the nut, you could drive the wiper shaft (and its metal gears and arms back out through the metal housing (Oh, forgot to say that the wiper shaft was "rusted" in its sleeve and would not oscillate back and forth). At the end of the shaft (on the outside of the vehicle) there is a metal "washer" that was an incredibly tight fit (this washer holds the shaft from falling into the gear box) so you have to keep tapping on the end of the shaft to eventually drive the shaft past this holding washer. Once you get past the washer the shaft would not pass through its guide sleeve in the metal housing (remember, "rusted" in place, seized). So tapped it out with a Phillips screwdriver acting as a long punch. You can then cleaned the interior sleeve by reaming it with a long circular steel brush (3/8" diameter brush that is designed to clean out push rod holes) and polished the wiper shaft with fine sandpaper, then lubed and reassembled the whole smash making sure the wiper shaft now moves freely in its sleeve. Put it all back together in the vehicle and we'll see if it works. Fingers crossed. This may save you some money if it works.

Turns over but won't fire


well the plastic piece are from the timing chain guides are either broken or ripped off,and the metal rattling was probably the timing chain,,i think the timing chain jmped or broke and broke the guides,if thats the car you most likely bent the valves in the head,,,i would remove the cam cover and the timing chain cover and see what you got,you may need a engine

The car has a automatic transmission and does not go in any gear like the cables broke


I would check by site to make sure the linkage to the transmission is still connected and moving . I would make sure the fluids are correct level.
The I would take to a trasnmission shop to check out .

The power steering gear broke off of the frame in my 1989 gmc suburban 5.7L, 350 v8. How can This be repaired? cant drive truck, turning left just causes the steering gear to bend in engine compartment and...


You'll have to weld a piece of flat iron with mounting holes pre-drilled, on to the frame, or if the frame where it broke isn't too bad, maybe just pound it flat, and weld the cracks and grind them . Then be sure to put some large washers on it, and lock washers. Somebody must have had that off at one time, and didn't tighten the bolts enough.

98 Lincoln TC,Cold starts fine ,runs good until warm, then shuts off. No codes,Cranks ok, have spark, PATS ok. No fuel pressure, cant hear fuel pump prime,New Fuel relay. jumped fuel pump - works. I do not hear fuel pump prime up, do not have fuel gauge, but pressing on valve in fuel rail- no pressurized fuel. Fuel regulator seems ok, not leaking / vacuum line dry as a bone. If I let it set for 15 min , it will start up again, but for a few minutes then dies out. If I let it set overnight it starts up perfectly and runs until operating temp is reached then stalls/stumbles, and shuts down. Vacuum is good while cranking, even with no start, Checked Inertia switch in trunk, it is not tripped. I have seen Ford TSB summaries' that mention issues like this , but I am not able to see to description. A point to add, the MAF sensor was cleaned, then I decided to replace it and did not make a difference. I do not have any stored codes, and the PATS is working fine, typical 2 second flash from and once key is inserted a 3 second steady light, then disappears. I have seen the TSB mentioning C103 Connector, it looks fine, I swapped out fuel pump relay with ac relay, still no difference.mention of wires around battery, do not know where to start. in dash service engine light and odometer is normal, seen other posts the say they only have lines, but mine is ok. the start of all of this , I washed engine with regular garden hose, ( not using pressure washer).also in the mean time, rear window defroster stopped working as well, can not say for same reason, but a mention.My problem started after washing engine. this is one of four Panther platform vehicles I owned with exact 4.6l w code engine, which I rinced down before. The only sensor I can think of is Oil pressure , or a corroded wire
