Ensure the heater is switched onto full heating this could be where the air has got stuck you may need to drain half the water-fluid run the engine whilst filling the water back in & have the heater running blowing full set as hot outlet. should sort the problem. Cheers, Malcolm Campbell.

What is the cost of a power steering pump for a 1999 taurus

This depends on the engine size 3.0= 6 or 3.4= 8 cylinders you can go to auto zone for 6 cylinder it's around $40-45.00 for the 8cylinder it's about $50.00 + $43.00>for a core that you get back when you bring in the old one if you can bring your old pump with you when you go to buy the new one you and the parts guy will be sure that the new one matches the old one and you won't need the core charge money so $40--50 + fluid +tax make sure when you put in the fluid to bleed the air out by letting the engine run and turn the steering wheel back and forth about HALF A TURN EACH WAY FROM THE STRAIGHT POSITION WITH THE WHEELS OFF THE GROUND THE FRONT JACKED UP DO NOT TURN THE STEERING WHEEL MORE THAN THAT BECAUSE YOU WILL BLOW OUT THE NEW SEALS IN THE PUMP BECAUSE OF EXCESS AIR LET THE ENGINE RUN FOR ABOUT 10MIN.DOING THE PROCEEDURE AND CHECK THE FLUID TO SEE IF IT IS STILL FOAMY LOOKING IF IT IS LET IT RUN MORE AND THEN SETTLE FOR 10MIN. CHECK THE FLUID AGAIN AND JUST LET IT SIT TILL YOU DON'T SEE ANY FOAM THEN YOU'LL BE SAFE TO DRIVE THE CAR AND THE PUMP WILL HAVE ALL THE AIR PURGED OUT SO YOU WON'T BLOW OUT THE SEALS MAKE SURE THAT THE WHEELS ARE OFF THE GROUND DURING THE PURGE PROCEEDURE IT WILL BE EASIER TO TURN THE WHEEL AND LESS PRESSURE ON THE PUMP FOR THE BEGINNING OF THE PURGE HAVE FUN AND GOOD LUCK STEPHEN

Brakes will not bleed, air in lines, not getting fluid to brakes

check the brake booster a lot of times they will leak on the inside of the firewall and run down under the carpet inseide look under the dash where the brake pedal rod goes thru the fire wall and see if there is and brake fluid coming thru
to bleed brakes by myself i use a bottle of brake fluid and get a hose the size of the bleeder on the brakes and put the hose over it and put the other end in the brake fluid open the bleader a little and pump the brakes air goes out and it will pull the fluid back in

My brake fluid resevour empied quickly. I did not notice until my brakes hit the floor. I filled the resevour but didn't bleed the brakes. How easy is the process, what tools do I need? I've bleed brakes...

Do not drive this car!!! And do not attempt to bleed the brakes on this car!!!!!
There is a LEAK in the Hydraulic system- that`s why the pedal went to the floor.
Most probable cause is rusted / weak brake lines under beneath the car. Once these lines leak, you have to replace them. This is my guess taking into consideration the age of your car. Other possible causes could other Hydraulic components. Please have your van towed to your repair shop for further inspection and an estimate. If you have CAA or other towing memberships, this will be the right time to tow your van. Adding more fluid or bleeding the brakes will NOT help you here. Hydraulic pressure is lost and repairs must be done to bring back your brake pedal..
Be safe to yourself and other`s -TOW your van....

I have 1987 dodge ram b250 van and i just changed the brakes,rotors,and calipers on the front but when i tried to bleed the air out of the lines i got nothing but the brake fluid resevoir is full of fluid....

Try connecting plastic tubing to drivers side bleeder valve. Place end of tube into a half full can of brake fluid. Press the brake repeatedly with the engine running so your power braking system is working. Watch the tubing until all bubbles have been pushed through the tubing. Repeat for the passenger side. The plastic tubing needs to be submerged in the fluid in the can to keep it from letting air back into the system through the bleeder valve.

Cant stop a 201venture van from over heating the heater works the van dont run hot but wen the heater dont heat the motor runs hot

When your not feeling heat coming from the heater it usually means that the coolant level is too low in the radiator. It sounds like you have a coolant leak somewhere which is causing your overheating problem. Fill your radiator and let the engine run for about a half hour with the radiator cap on tight. Then turn off the engine and check for any leaks under the van. If you don't see any leaks under the van then see if the carpeting is wet on the passenger side of the vehicle. If the carpet is wet and it smells like anti-freeze you have a heater core that is leaking. I hope this helps you. :)

I am having problem bleeding the brakes on my 2002 kia sportage.Every time I bleed the brakes I only get the peddle up just a bit but not enough.Is there a special way to do bleed them.There doesn't seem...

When bleeding never allow the Masrer Cylinder get below 1/4 full or you will introduce more air, which will mean starting over again. I helps if you have a length of clear plastic tubing that fits snugly over the tip of the bleed nipple so that you can see if there is any air bubbles being released. You usually start at the rear wheel that has the longest run of pipe from the master cylinder. Next is the other rear wheel. Next is the front wheel with the longest run and last is the remaining front wheel. Proceedure:
1. Have an assistant pump the brake pedal 3 or 4 time then hold down an maintain weight on pedal as it drops when fluid is released.
2. Release bleed nipple and observe fluid coming out for bubbles then retighten when flow stops.
3. Assistant then allows pedal up and waits for a few seconds for cylinder piston to refill fully.
4. Repeat from #1 until no more air bubbles are visible, then go to next wheel.
If pedal still feels a little spongy repeat process after a couple of days driving with engine running so that any remaining tiny air bubbles are purged.
You should also make sure that the brake pedal free travel adjustment is correct because if the free travel is insufficient, it will not allow the master cylinder to operate correctly..

2000 millennia Heater problem

make sure your coolant fluid level is good, than check the valve that controls the amount of coolant that flows to the heat exchanger inside your dashboard, make sure it is wide open. (find it by having someone inside the car move the heat control from hot to cold and back while you are under the hood looking for the valve. Sometimes the cable that goes from the dashboard heat/temp control to the coolant valve comes off.

Overheating radiator

I'd make sure you have fluid in your radiator. Does you AC blow cold? If it doesn't there is a chance you are low or out of fluid. This would lead to a crack in the radiator. Is it a crank shaft driven fan of electric?
