Replacing the drive belt on 05 Pontiac Sunfire, how do I release the tension to get the belt on.

Must have a center bearing screw to allow release.If not is just nearby,on the top of a flat piece witch hide a spring.If not imay have just to fix a allen key in the middle and it can pull the bearing against a strong hidden spring.Use a small mirror to ispect.
This image shows a hidden spring in a closed case for sunfire(u can see the rotation sense and blocks).U need a front good key wich will help rotate the hole bearing against the inner cased round spring (to the right hand,to the left it will unscrew the hole assy)Cheers

I KNOW IT IS 123456 BUT I wanted to know where they go do they fire ? 12/34/56/? or do they fire 14/36/52??

The #1 cylinder is on the passenger side front, those are cylinders 1,3,5 the other side are 2,4,6 counting from the front.
#1 coil also fires #4, #3 coil fires #6 and #5 also fires #2.
The cam gears on the middle of the cams are two piece spring loaded gears, there is a hole for a bolt to go in after the two pieces are lined up until the cams are installed then the bolts are removed, if you have any kind of manual it should mention this. The two dats are called assembly marks and are not the timing marks, the timing marls are the single dots, they use the assembly marks so that when the cams are in you can remove the 10mm bolt from the gears. let me know if you need some illustrations for those marks and I'll see if I can upload something for you but it may be tomorrow.

Why does my 97 tahoe leans to the left side

Frame could be twisted from a previous wreck, the rubber isolators for the cab shell to frame could be dry rotting or in an area rusting out. Was it ever crashed- anti sway bar might reveal a twist)? Core support might be twisted. Other suspension components may be dry rotting or worn. Front tires may also be two different sizes overall.

New springs replaced pairs would be a better solution than spacers if evertything tracks back to spring height issues. You may also have some cracked leaves in the rear springs as well.

Have you checked the ride height and made those adjustments yet?

My Front left tire is tilted inward and underneath the truck i found one of the support bars that run's across is broken off on the left side. I looked around the wheel and found that no metal was bent so...

General Description
The front suspension allows each wheel to compensate for changes in the road surface without affecting the opposite wheel. Each wheel independently connects to the frame with a steering knuckle, ball joint assemblies, and upper and lower control arms.
The control arms specifically allow the steering knuckles to move in a three-dimensional arc. Two tie rods connect to steering arms on the knuckles and an intermediate rod. These operate the front wheels.
The two-wheel drive vehicles have coil chassis springs. These springs are mounted between the spring housings on the frame and the lower control arms. Double, direct acting shock absorbers are inside the coil springs. The coil springs attach to the lower control arms and offer ride control.
The upper part of each shock absorber extends through the upper control arm frame bracket. This bracket has two grommets, two grommet retainers, and a nut.
A spring stabilizer shaft controls the side roll of the front suspension. This shaft is mounted in rubber bushings that are held by brackets to the frame side rails. The ends of the stabilizer shaft connect to the lower control arms with link bolts. Rubber grommets isolate these link bolts. Rubber bushings attach the upper control arm to a cross shaft. Frame brackets bolt the cross shaft.
A ball joint assembly is riveted to the outer end of the upper control arm. A rubber spring in the control arm assures that the ball seats properly in the socket. A castellated nut and a cotter pin join the steering knuckle to the upper ball joint.
The inner ends of the lower control arm have pressed-in bushings. The bolts pass through the bushings and join the arm to the frame. The lower ball joint assembly is a press fit in the lower control arm and attaches to the steering knuckle with a castellated nut and a cotter pin.
Ball socket assemblies have rubber grease seals. These seals prevent entry of moisture and dirt and damage to the bearing surfaces.
Four-wheel drive models have a front suspension that consists of the control arms, a stabilizer bar, a shock absorber, and right and left torsion bars. The torsion bars replace the conventional coil springs. The lower control arm attaches to the front end of the torsion bar. The rear end of the torsion bar mounts on an adjustable arm at the crossmember. This arm adjustment controls the vehicle trim height.
Two-wheel drive vehicles have tapered roller sheel bearings. These bearings are adjustible and need lubrication.
Four-wheel drive models and RWD Utilities have sealed front-wheel bearings. These bearings are pre-adjusted and need no lubrication.
Heat treatment may create darkened areas on the bearing assembly. This discoloration does not signal a need for replacement.
Hope this helps?

Where is the thermostat located and what does it look like?

depends on what engine you have, but generally it will be on the right side of the engine if you are standing in front of it. It is in a housing which is bolted to the engine. You can locate it by following the large diameter radiator hose on the same side

4. Slide the old bulb straight out.
5.Wearing disposable gloves so that skin oil doesn't get on the new bulb, open the new bulb's package and insert the new bulb straight into the holder, making sure it goes all the way to the front. The middle electrical prong should be up.

Steering issues: i can feel a binding/clunking in the steering wheel of my 2007 chrysler sebring as i turn left or right, stop, and at accelerating? i do not know WHAT this is and have had extensive work...

Did they replace entire strut & spring assy, with new, or just do struts? Feel where spring of strut sits on strut base at bottom & see if you can feel piece of thin rubber between spring & base of strut, or if spring is up against the edge of the base (seat). Sometimes I've seen the rubber between them move and cause spring to rub up against the seat or base of strut, (meatl on metal) especially when turning.

Front brakes draging and over heating

This one had me stumped for a while. The above solution should work. The reason a brake hose can cause this is that if they over-crimp the piece of metal in the middle of the brake hose that holds it in place and/or the rubber in the hose swells too much as it ages, the passage through the hose can close off where it goes through that metal piece. Once this happens, the brake brake fluid can still force its way through the hose when you step on the brake, but the caliper will be unable to fully release. This will overheating everything and cause the brake pads to wear very quickly.
