Please check to change only if the rework is going to be warrantied as after doing the work if the compressor is not pumping to the desired level , it would be a big mistake.
So estimate the cost of the rework to the cost of a new compressor and make your decision.
After all the Ac must do the job well in cooling and any let down will be a waste of money.

We are changing back disk brakes. How do you get the caliper to go back inside for the new brakes to fit?


the piston needs to be turned and pushed at the same time. There are several different tools for this.

This one works the best but is also more expensive.

This one is very cheap and may work. Personally not worth it to me.

These will lock into the slots in the piston. Then turn the piston while applying pressure. Because the E-brake is built into the caliper the piston has a mechanism that allows it to ratchet out. Turning the piston while pushing it in will release the ratchet mechanism and allow to piston to be pushed back into the caliper.

I never did an oil change and drove far. the mechanic said my pistion was broken is there a way to fix just the piston and not change the entire engine?


Did the mechanic take the engine apart, if not then It's hard to say if it's the piston. But the engine will have to be over hauled if it did not ruin the engine. or another engine installed.

How to change the timing belt in 1996 ford contour gl


I know this is old, but that guy is wrong... the zetec is a non-interference engine... meaning the the valves cannot come in contact with the pistons.

How to change a timing belt on a 2000 galant


Changing a timing belt is a job that is better left to the professionals. On some engines if it is not done properly severe engine damage can result. Damage such as bent valves, broken pistons etc. Seriously if you are here on Fixya asking about timing belt replacement you probably do not have the mechanical expertise to properly do the job. In addition on some vehicles special tools are required for disassembly and assembly.

Hope this helps

Are any special tools required or any special process to change the rear brake pads on a 2006 Jetta? I have changed pads on BMW's Fords Chevys etc....but you never know, so I thought I'd ask. thanks!


These cars usually have disk brakes in the back. You need a caliper piston rotator tool, this tool fits into the caliper piston and you must turn it in to retract the piston, it fits onto a 3/8 " drive socket wrench. Npa sell a universal one for like $15.00 - $20.00.

2001 Toyota Corolla, Burning Oil rapidly


Take your vehicle back to your mechanic, and have him perform a DRY, then a WET compression test. Please provide both readings back to me. In the meantime, ask him what it would cost you to him replace the piston rings. This is your problem. The 2 tests will simply verify me thinking.
