I have gone to an automotive machine shop and they had new bolts ready for me to buy. They pressed the new bolt in with a hydraulic press. Ten bucks, all done.

If you can't do this, you'll have to buy a new brake disk or a rear axle...depending on which corner has broken bolts.

How do I change a tire

Some nuts are theft proof so that no one can steal your rims. There is usually one on a rim and it has a key hole in it. If that's the case a ford dealer should have a key. If it's a ordinary nut then the threads are stripped and a reputable tire shop will have to cut the nuts off with a cutting torch or a nut splitter and install new ones, The third possibility is that the tire wrench you're using is too big for the nut or is stripped. Check that one out first. If nothing works go to the nearest tire shop. They have the right tools and expertise and cost should be reasonable.

Thermostat housing bolts wont tighten up

Pull the housing off and check if the threads are stripped where the bolts screw in. On aluminum, threads can get easily stripped from over tightening. A shop can use tap and die tools to rethread the holes. It shouldn't cost too much.

The bolts were loosen on driver from tire now it's stripped wut to do

you will have to remove the wheel, brake caliper and rotor and remove the studs. Then you will need to install new studs for which you will need a stud installer tool or you can use a lug nut and washers to pull stud through the hub. the stripped out studs can be removed with a hammer. make sure you have the clearance in the back of hub before pounding on them.

Have 2002 dodge neon that gets water in the trunk where spare tire is housed, and large amount of water in both rear floor areas. What might be the problem and how much do you think it will cost to fix?

try opening the trunk and cleaning the water drain off out. there is a rubber strip that goes around the lip of the trunk that gets clogged with leaves and sticks and just trash.look at the rubber strip to see if clogged or torn. if it's torn you'll need to replace or repair it with some silicone sealent.around where that strip is, thats a drain for water to run off the car. try to clean and repair before you replace it but if you have to replace it, the rubber strip is not that expensive, maybe $30.00 for the rubber and it's easy to install.hope this helps!!

Steering gear/rack & pinion needs to be repaired or replaced

Take the vehicle to an alignment shop take employees ASE Technicians. They will remove the stripped bolt and get you safely going again. Its hard to give you a price so I'm gonna go for the worse case scenario and you take it from there. New rack about $350,Labor including wheel alignment and balancing about $400. Total about $750. Now if your tires are bad they probably will not do alignment so figure about $100 for each new tire. Add that to $750. Remember this is the worse case.

Front Left tire clicks when moving,but stops when brakes are applied

The only piece between the bolts and the tire is the rim and you would know if your rims were missing.It sounds like the wheel bearing is the problem since anything else would cause other symptoms not listed in you post.
