How do I loosen the clamp on the bypass hose for a 1995 Buick LeSabre Custom without moving the alternator out of the way? I can't get a screwdriver or wrench in the narrow opening. Any hints? Thanks.

    So, that's the only way? What about cutting the bad end of the hose and installing a plastic connector between the old end of the hose and the new one? Thanks again. You're awesome.

I just put a bypass hose on my 91 Buick lasbre and turn on the heat and started seeing steam come out the vents and now its steam on my windshield

Sounds like you have a bad heater core or you have antifreeze leaking in the into the heater box. Maybe a loose clamp on the bypass hose or maybe you damaged the heater core tube when you installed or removed the bypass hose and now it is not sealing properly.

Replacing A Heater Hose

Drain coolant from the radiator. Loosen the hose clamps at both ends of the hose and slide them off back. Gently remove the hose from the metal nipples. A screwdriver can help loosen the grip which the hose on the nipples, or you can cut the rubber. Place the hose clamps on the new hose in positions which are away from the clamping areas. Install the new hose and slide the hose clamps into position and tighten. Refill cooling system with coolant.

1995 buick lesabre custom. has a new fuel

even if you have preasure in the line that does not mean you have fuel going into the engine. you should check the injectors to see if they are spraying and if not you need to check the injector pulse to find out if the PCM is sending the signal to them to spray. to check injector pulse you will need a noide light to test the pulse it the light lights up you have pulse, but easy way to check is pull an injector and turn the engine over see if it sprays.

Hose from water pump to intake manifold above and behind water pu

this is a water pump bypass hose connector to the manifold, take the broken piece to a parts store and show it to them, it should have the threads still broken off in the manifold so explain that. To remove the broken piece ask for a EZ OUT to fit the piece you took to the store.
It is common for these to become brittle and break off but it is a simple fix.
