The best way is to fit the vented engine cover from the turbo or import version,that has small louvres on each of the slots to prevent water ingress.DONT block off any of the vents or you risk overheating the engine bay.

Haven't heard of such a thing as yet. Have you tried blocking the vent from underneath

Remove and replace waterpump on 88 mod petrol jackaroo

see if you can turn the pump shaft by hand (hub at the end of the shaft. If you can then the pump may be ok. check for idler pulley seized . Any item with bearings that spins easily will be ok. Check that the power steering pump turns by hand.
Pumps will not seize if they are not turning.water pump bearings will produce a deep grumbling rattly noise when idling if they are failing.

2001 Toyota Tacoma, is a flood truck in Galena, AK. Alternator won't charge battery, radio won't turn on and fan for defrost/heat won't operate. I have checked the fuses and all are good. I think all...

As the alternator is connected directly to the battery via the cable and the car was under water(flooded) the internals of the alternator will be corroded so a new alternator would be in order. The radio will have water in it so a new radio will be in order.. the fan motor is pprobably seized due to rust in the bearings so see if you cam move the fan manually. If it is stiff the again a new fan will be in order..

Battery light and abs light on hard to steer overheating

sounds like you either lost your fan belt, or you have a seized up alternator, or belt tensioner. The fan belt [ drive belt ] turns the alternator to charge the battery, the power steering pump to make easy steering , and the water pump cooling your engine. Do you smell rubber burning? hear a squealing noise? or rattling noise. Open your engine bonnet, start the car up, and look at the drive belt and pulleys. They should all be turning. If this is the problem you will see something seized up. Also if you have let the power steering pump run out of oil, it may also be seized. Good luck with it

Do not know what an alternator bearing is

An alternator bearing is inside the alternatorand can only be gotten at by taking the alternator apart. You don't say which pulleys are shaking but it is quite possible that they are the cause of your noise. They have been wearing for some time and now have gotten to the stage where they are getting noisy and very near the end of their life. With the engine shut off grab the offending pulleys and try to move them up and down or sideways. If there is any movement, and don't be shy when you try, they need to be replaced before they seize up. From noisy bearing to seize up can happen very quickly so get this looked at right away. Hope this helps.

Rattling noise from front near alternator

I think the problem is the power take off for the front fan ,steering etc. Underneath the middle of the car you will see what looks like a small propshaft pointing towards the front with a doughnut shapped mounting bolted to each end. These rubber joints wear and rattle on tick over or low revs cost is about £40 for the 2 from Japarts
Takes about 2 hours to change.Hope this helps Good luck
