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.

Dont know what to do

When a CAT runs that hot it means the engine is running too rich. You can cause a fire. Make sure that all the cylinders are firing

Car running hot

You could try to change or empty the catalyst, if it's old and never changed, this could be the problem, as the exhaust won't let through easily enough. If i were you, i would empty it at first to make sure this is the problem, as well as getting about 15 horsepower more, probably more if the catalyst is very old. easiest way to empty it (at least with some other cars, i don't know about Pontiac) would be to take it off and use a crowbar to smash it up inside, and pour it out (yeah, i know it sounds suspicious, but it works)

1994 Buick LeSabre does not want to take gas and exhaust manifold gets red hot

If you've checked your coolant and the gas is good it is likely the timing is off drastically and it needs fixed. I don't remember if that car has a chain or belt. I know most manufacturers change intervals on timing belts run from 60-90 thousand miles.Good luck those are nice cars when they are running well.

How do i fix my blinkers on my 1971 f100 ford ?

There is a flasher unit for the turn signals, separate from the hazard flasher, that is under the dash. If the fuse for the turns is good, and you already know the bulbs are good since the hazards work, then you may have a bad turn signal switch.
When you use the turn switch, do the bulbs come on and stay on, or nothing? If they come on and don't blink, then it's probably a bad turn flasher unit. If they don't come on at all, suspect a bad turn signal switch. But first check the fuses, then pull off the connector to the turn switch and see if you have one hot wire there, with key on. That one hot wire will be from the fuse.

How are the bearings of a 2002 jeep cherokee made? like, are they packed or do they run on rear end oil?

I don't know of any bearing in smaller truck that run in rear end grease. If you look at the plug for the oil level you will probably find that they don't really run it high enough to oil the axle bearings properly anyway. I never tore a Jeep down but Chevy Ford both have pressed on sealed bearings. Tear it down if it is running hot you need to do something anyway. That will be a good way to find out. Please rate my answer so I am rewarded points for it.

My fan is not running, causing my car to boil over anytime I have it running too long. :( What can we do to fix this? Also, the check engine light is on, my dad hooked up a scanner to it and we got a code,...

is the fuse and relay for the fan ok !! make sure the fans are ok, by jumping fan connector from positive on fan to positive on battery. negative on battery to negative on fan. if fan works it could be a bad coolant sensor, or a themostat thats stuck open, not allowing coolant to get hot and thats why the electric fans do not work. the coolant will not get hot enough if thermostat sticks open. it will by pass the thermostat and never get hot. have a good day !!
