New Style P/S Hose does not want to thread in

2002 Jeep Gr. Cher. New P/S hose does not want to thread into pump fitting. Got the hose direct from dealer and saw that it is different type fitting. Any suggestions on how to start? Can't seem to even get a few threads started.

Any and all help appreciated.

Take the hose back and exchange it for another one. maybe the threads are defective. did you compare the threads on the old hose to the new one, do they match?

Have a Dodge Grand Caravan 3.3L what is behind water pump???Was driving and a hose popped off and coolant went everywhere its a hose from behind water pump.plwase tell me where the hose goes what needs to...


Is it the smaller water hose from the heater core? Coming from the firewall behind the engine? The metal fitting on the water pump will have to be replaced. Some are threaded and screw in. Others are press fitted, If a shop can get to the fitting where it is, they might fix it easily. Otherwise, you may need to have the pump removed, and a new fitting installed, or hey, a good time to replace the pump.
Good luck.

My coolant sensor is bad on 1998 Jeep Grand Cher Laredo TSI V8 5.2 4X4 is flashing in control panel.


Trace the upper radiator hose toward the Grand Cherokee's engine until you reach the metal component connecting the hose to the engine -- this is the thermostat housing. Find the coolant temperature sensor -- the electrical component on the thermostat housing. Press the locking button on the coolant temperature sensor wiring harness and pull the wiring harness from the sensor, then remove sensor it screws out. when putting in new sensor coat the threads with teflon pipe thread tape so there is no leaks.

95 Jeep Gr. Cher, rear pass window won't roll-up.


If you inspect the harness, it really does not matter what the wire color is if the wire is damaged, repair it
Any broken wires are not a good thing. Also check the wires for the door that has the problem as well. The master switches on jeeps are poorly made and sometimes replacing it will help...I use scrapyard parts for that. A test light and decent voltmeter are very helpful in finding and verifying voltage in wires.

Power sterring hose leaks. how is hose connected to pump


Most of the PS pressure hoses are Compression Fittings. If the fitting is straight on and is clean on the inside before you seated the hose, there may be a burr of the pump side where the fitting sits. Some of these fittings are replaceable and others require a new pump. Check your new hose also for cracks where the pipe section of the hose is that looks sort of like a trumpet end. If the fitting is in good shape, the pump fitting is clean and unmarred, you may need to tighten the hose a little more.

Engine overheating


Try to flush the system And inspect radiator. When moving the engine is also cooled by air. Make sure the water is circulating trough the manifold and the heater core. You can do this by atching a garden hose to each hose one at a time. You may also want to check the waterpump & thernostat..

Power steering 2002 Jeep Liberty


Remove the clamped on hose on the pump (not the one with the pressure fitting), drain into a pan below the vehicle. Replace hose and refill, run and turn steering wheel all the way in both directions (to purge air in system). Do not permit system to run low so add fluid after each time wheel is turned, as needed You cannot remove all the fluid so it is good to repeat this procedure twice. Use a good quality fluid. You don't need much, (usually a quart or less) so price should not be an issue. After your'e finished, drive and re-check level and check for leaks if any.

Thermostat


Hi,
Folow the large hose from the top of the radiator to the engine block. There should be a housing held on with 2 bolts. The thermostat element is inside this.
Note which way around it is fitted, as the bulb part has to be on the engine side to work correctly.
Easy way is to drain 1/2 of coolant from the plug under the radiator into a clean bowl.
Undo top hose, Replace stat, do up hose again, then refill through the expansion bottle. If it won't take it all due to an airlock, run engine a short while, then try to refill again.

Often new stats come with a new gasket - use it with a very thin smear of sealant, and grease the bolt threads before replacing - don't overtighten - they're only small bolts.

Using a flair nut wrench, disconnect both ends of the hose & remove it. New one goes back in the same way other one came out. Make sure that any "o" rings (if any) are replaced as new (usually supplied with hose if they're supposed to be there). Make sure that fittings are threading squarely into components and can be finger tightened at least part way to avoid cross-threading fittings. When finished, make sure that hose is not rubbing on anything or it will wear a hole at that point.
RE-fill pump, start vehicle, turn steering wheel all the way to the left, hold it there and count to ten, center wheel, re-fill pump, repeat process, all way to right. (this removes air from system). Top off, check for leaks and you are finished!
