It is possibly emmissions related. I wouldn't worry about it unless it comes off again or you notice your truck running differently. If it does pop off again, you may want to buy a .80 hose clamp and just clamp it back on to where it pops off.

Where is evap canister on 1996 chevy blazer 4.3 liter


Check up under the driver side body behind the rear wheel (left rear). It should be tucked up under the body. It should have 3 hoses connected to it, and is a black rectangular looking plastic box.

Code po456?


The code po456 is leak in the evaporative emissions system.
First thing to check is for a poorly installed fuel fill cap

or try the following

1. Loosten the worm clamps that connect the air box hose to the intake.
2. Remove the bolt holding the air box to the radiator support.
3. Remove the small hose that comes off the front of the air box and goes from the air box to under the intake, I beleive this is the AIR tube.
4. Remove the AIT sensor from the intake hose.
5. Pull up on the air box.

Once removed set the air box a side. Locate the two lines that are wrapped in flex loom and tied to each other that go under the air box. They go from the solenoid that is mounted right next to the horn, behind the right headlight, to the rear of the vehicle. Locate a small 2" rubber hose that connects the front line to the rear line under the air box. Most likely this small hose that connects the two lines has a crack in it because it has been stressed from being stretched over a metal tube. If you replace this, it should fix your 'small leak'.

Reset the code by disconnecting the ground to the battery for a few minutes.

Hope this helps

Where is the drainedge for the radioter


For a 2001 Buick Regal GS 3.8 Liter, Supercharged engine:

First, let engine cool some. Second, locate small drainage hole at the bottom left/drivers side, of the radiator. From the bottom of this small drain hole, go straight back toward rear of radiator, then up about 1 1/2 to 2 inches up. (Have a drain pan or pail handy, to catch the old antifreeze.) You'll find a dark colored drain nut. Use a larger, correct sized socket ratchet wrench & loosen this fitting a turn or so, counter clockwise. Old antifreeze will begin to come out the bottom drain hole. The more you loosen the fitting, the faster the fluid flow out. I wouldn't remove the drain plug completely, or you'll loose control of the draining flow rate.

I just changed my anti-freeze just last week. I also changed the 2 large radiator hoses & smaller 2' overflow hose at the same time, as long as I was doing the job. They had never been changed before. I also used new hose clamps & a small packet of "radiator hose grease", from Autozone.. I drove the car up onto front car ramps to make it easier. I used safety jack stands for extra care. " You-Tube" shows some, "how to videos", that are helpful.

The old hose clamps are difficult to get to. (You'll need a few tools, some time & patience.) To get to the upper clamp, near the right/passenger side of the of the car, near the battery, I removed the outer serpentine belt & tension pully. I then removed the factory installed spring tension clamp, with the help of an adjustable battery pliers. The bottom of this hose wasn't too bad to get to. On the left/drivers side of car, remove black air intake box to access upper clamp. Remove the black metal brace bar, the will allow access to the air intake black box.

I also changed the small overflow 2 foot long hose & 2 clamps, that goes from radiator cap area, back to the overflow white plastic tank, close to passenger firewall. I removed the overflow tank to clean it out as well. I drained the fluid & changed the 3 hoses & clamps. I then placed all removed parts back where they belong, including white plastic overflow tank, tension pully & outer serpentine belt, air intake black box & metal diagonal brace, contacting air intake box. I flushed the system with some Prestone Radiator Cleaner & clean water. Start car & get up to temp., then run for about 10 minutes. Let cool, then drain again. I flushed my car at least 2-3 times after this, until the drain water ran clear.

The best price on a 5 year/150,000 mile anti freeze, came from Wal-Mart. I then mixed about 50/50 with Distilled water, as suggested on the bottle. All went well & no leaks! I took my time and did a thorough job. Good luck!

Washer only works on one side


first stick a straight pin or needle in the small hole on top of the hood it may just be plugged. then if that does not work then check the hose under the hood up under the felt liner and follow it to the connection to see if has come loose there if so you can fix that with a connector tube from any parts store take a small piece of the hose so they know what size and kind you will need
