I remember removing the water hose and bending it back and tying it, then two or so spark plug wires had to be removed to give more access.

with a couple of different box wrenches with differing offsets, and small drive socket wrench with universal fitting on the socket you should get enough leverage to loosen the bolts and back out the bolts. try backing the bolts out with your fingers from turn to turn.

good tools, for example a six point socket and perhaps a swivel head socket wrench are worth the price. you don't want to damage the bolts or beak them as this is a difficult repair to make. also, the thermostat housing is not robustly made and when i reatached mine a little piece of old gasket material was enough to force a crack in the housing as i tightened it down. i had to go to a junk yard for another.

you might try getting advice on how to gently loosen the bolts if they seem stuck.

all considered, this is not a difficult repair.

good luck

How can I fix my exhaust leak without welding I have a 93 bmw 740I

if you don`t want to weld it then you can try exhaust tape that you wrap around the hole and get the exhaust hot and it will harden. don`t know why you don`t want to weld it. or you can replace the exhaust component that is bad.

Range shift inhibited displayed when I was trying to back up or go forward. Truck felt as though it came out of gear and went to neutral even though I was still in gear.

probably a major problem . but a good transmission shop might find otherwise .a normal fluid flush and which cleans out the old dirty stuff and fills with new runs around 100.00

What's your problem?rear axle seal left side leaking

I don't know how much stuff costs - I do the work myself to avoid having to pay people to do it for me. I'd guess you'd probably get charged at least two hours for axle seals at ~$90/hour at a dealership... I wouldn't bother doing both sides but you can if you want (will probably add another 30min to an hour to the job). Totally guessing but I'd put the bill at around $450 from a dealership, and maybe $350 from an independent shop. Call around and see.

My emissions light is on, not the check engine light but the picture of the engine. I don't know what's wrong with it. I was told to let the car dry out because of a flood that happened but...

If you are able to drive the car to an Autozone, Advance or Oreilly's parts store they will use a scanner to tell you what the engine light is trying to tell you. Its free and sometimes the part is one that is simple to replace.

If you do not work on this stuff yourself, you can price the repair now as you can name the problem but need help in fixing it.

I have a 2002 chevrolet cavalire and i need a time change and i need to know how much mony it that going to chost me to fix the car ...i need help fast....

To have the timing adjusted it will be around $200 to $450 because of having to remove so much stuff in the motor to get to it. If you get in good with a mechanic he may do it cheaper. I also don't know where you are located. Those are the prices around here.

The defrost stopped working in my 93 toyota 4-runner. What should I look for to fix it?

look for a
1-blown fuse
2-in the rear glass maybe one of the lines is broken or disconected
also if you or previous owner might have removed window tint with a razor blade that can damage those lines that heat up inspect all the lines if one is interrupted or broken try fixing it with optional stuff that you can get from any autoparts dont know the name but if you tell them what you are trying to fix they know the stuff you are suppose to use good luck.
