    A mechanic has serviced my 1990 Ford Taurus SHO because I had a leak in a hose at the rear of my engine/firewall. He improvised a few hoses (non factory hoses) , and connected two long hoses on firewall from top to bottom. Is this the proper connection of flow for my heater core and if not , how do I bypass ?

    Smallest hose coming from the top of the crank case is leaking oil, I know you have the throttle cable in front on top then right at the muffler there are 2 hoses 1 hose that is 1/4 or so in size and the smaller hose which is about
    6" in length this is the hose that is leaking engine oil, it appears to connect to something but I cannot find what it connects too.

99 FORD TAURUS antifreeze is leaking from hose that goes from the overflow tank to top of engine. hose starts as rubber then metal over engine then back to rubber. part that leaks is connection to top of...


How about just get a piece of auto hose at the parts tore and clamp it on there. A lot of rubber parts are not dealer items, just shelf items. There are a bunch of different hoses, some reinforced, oil and gas proof, high temp, rubber, nylon, etc, etc. Just get a good one of the right diameter. Hope this helps.

Where is the thermostat located grand am 2000?


Under the radiator hose that meets the top of the engine
under the throttlebody if you follow the heater hose from firewall on the driverside toward the engine it goes to the thermostat housing.

To get to the thermostat you need to remove air cleaner box assembly from the throttle body and move it out of the way. Next, remove the nut at the throttle body that holds the steel tube that goes to the heater hose, remove all hoses that connect to this tube and raise it out of the way. Remove the steel line that goes to the radiator surge tank from the thermostat housing. Now the fun part. With a 13MM box end wrench, loosen the lower bolt from the thermostat housing. A 13 mm socket will remove the top bolt. Remove the thermostat cover and remove the thermostat. Reverse to install.

Buick wont idle after cold start


It could be lots of things, one worth checking is to make sure the throttle body is not sooted up excessively. If your mass air flow sensor is not in the throttle body make sure the hose to it is connected and not leaking, Also check to make sure the intake or throttle body are not leaking coolant into the intake manifold. It would be something you should be able to spot with a scanner and a cold start, sometimes dirty mass air flow sensors and even coolant temp sensors can cause it as well. Try cold starting it with the coolant sensor and mass airflow unplugged just to see what it does. This will turn on your check engine lamp however.

Pcv


Under the wiring harness, which is under the fuel rail, which is under the upper intake manifold.
From the front of the car and starting at the throttle body, locate a large rubber hose coming out the bottom of the throttle body, this hose comes straight down, then bends towards the front of the car. A plastic pipe connects to this rubber hose and the plastic pipe continues forward, then bends to the passenger side and dives under the wiring harness a few inches and connects to a 2" long rubber hose which is then connected to the PCV.
You can see it actually. Locate the big coolant hose that is just above where the plastic pipe dives under the wiring harness, if you shine a light over the top of this hose and at a fairlt steep angle allowing you to see under the harness, you can make out the PCV.
