2007 sonata water leaking under throttel body


under the throttle body is the cold start unit where two hose pipes are and the one works as an inlet with first start with cold and after with hot water feeding and the other as out hot water return to engine. The job of that unit is to get the water temperature and as electronic connected with the ecu is giving the message for cold start rev up until the water temperature change to hot and revs dropped to the correct according to ecu. most propably is either one of the two hoses leaking or the flange itself.

My oil is black and smells like gas. i want to change my oil because it scares me but i dont know what type of oil to use for my truck.it is a 1987 xlt ford ranger truck with a 2.9 l.engine from a 1988...


a lot of stuff to fix here
oil: with the truck running hot, I would use a heavy oil, like 10-40
trans: where is the leak? If pan, tighten bolts. seals are much harder repair
water leak: possibly a freeze plug. Maybe you should pull the tranny and fix the water leak and the trans seal at the same time (if the seal is bad)
overheating: maybe just caused by the leak. Hard to tell until the leak is fixed. Might want to check the radiator for sludge and back flush if dirty.
hard sound: probably loose flange seal at exhaust manifold. check hole exhaust pipe to locate leak. If not along pipe, unbolt the flange and put in a new gasket.
engine problems: is the engine light on? If yes, have the truck scanned for trouble code and report them back to us. Autozone does free scans.

1987 ford f150 need to change both headlight assemblies


CAUTION The headlamp bulb contains high pressure halogen gas. The bulb may shatter if scratched or dropped! Hold the bulb by its plastic base only. If you touch the glass portion with your fingers, or if any dirt or oily deposits are found on the glass, it must be wiped clean with an alcohol soaked paper towel. Even the oil from your skin will cause the bulb to burn out prematurely due to hot-spotting.

Fig. 1: Headlamp components (click for zoom)

  1. Make sure that the headlight switch is OFF.
  2. Raise the hood and find the bulb base protruding from the back of the headlamp assembly
  3. Disconnect the wiring by grasping the connector and snapping it rearward firmly.
  4. Rotate the bulb retaining ring counterclockwise (rear view) about 1 / 8 turn and slide it off the bulb base. Don't lose it; it's re-usable.
  5. Carefully pull the bulb straight out of the headlamp assembly. Don't rotate it during removal.
WARNING Don't remove the old bulb until you are ready to immediately replace it! Leaving the headlamp assembly open, without a bulb, will allow foreign matter such as water, dirt, leaves, oil, etc. to enter the housing. This type of contamination will cut down on the amount and direction of light emitted, and eventually cause premature blow-out of the bulb.
To install:
  1. With the flat side of the bulb base facing upward, insert it into the headlamp assembly. You may have to turn the bulb slightly to align the locating tabs. Once aligned, push the bulb firmly into place until the bulb base contacts the mounting flange in the socket.
  2. Place the retaining ring over the bulb base, against the mounting flange and rotate it clockwise to lock it. It should lock against a definite stop when fully engaged.
  3. Snap the electrical connector into place. A definite snap will be felt.
  4. Turn the headlights on and check that everything works properly.

Hope helps, (remember rated this).

2005 Dodge Stratus Coolant Outlet Flange


The water outlet housing if installed properly, shouldn't leak. The only way to build up too much pressure would be for the thermostat to be stuck closed. I would find out where the leak is coming from before I went any further. Use the bleeder screw in the housing to bleed the air out of the system.

How to install my back windshield in a mazda mx6 93


Easer said than done! First remove all the window trim from the inside of the car remove all outer window mouldings. Next take your special tool {electric knife} and cut the kit (rubber under the glass) all of the way around the window. Then use your handels (suction cups) and remove the glass. Clean the leftover kit off the flange then clean the flange with a good solvent. Install the new kit and place the new glass on the kit. Brush the glass sealer on the flange kit and 1/8 inch of the glass. Replace all mouldings and trim very carefully. If the glass didn't brake or leak your done. Needless to say if you don't have the experionce with glass don't try it. Instead call AUTO GLASS SPECIALIST.
