It looks like a commercial "vacuum breaker". Unscrewing the bottom nut, there will be a rubber diaphragm and a spring. The parts will need to come from the manufacturer stamped on side. Clean the mating surfaces real well before putting in the new parts. I hope I'm on this for you. Good luck.

Water heater using too much electricity.

Check if the TP valve is running water, and replace TP valve. Check if there is water leak somewhere
Replace both thermostats and both elements, and then keep temperature turned down.

I have a Whirlpool washer that's leaking water onto the floor. Jason Harris told me to look under the heater i don't know where the heater is.

There is no heater on that machine.
Does the water leak as soon as you start the fill cycle or does it start to leak when the water level gets up to the agitator?

Antifreeze leaking onto belts don't know where it is coming from. Is it the water pump or the water outlet? changed the hoses

What you need to do is pressurize the cooling system, then you should be able to see where the leak is coming from.....There is a tool that does this pressure test.

Oil is mixing with water but does not have a head gasket problem any ideas please

I don't mean to sound sceptical, but how have you concluded there is not any head gasket problem? Do you mean a compression test is good? Because that will not show up any leak between the water jacket and the oil passages, via the head gasket joint. Only a pinhole leak is needed because water is, well, watery.
Has a radiator leak down test been done? This will show up water jacket leaks (there may be more than one), and give you some idea of the size.

I don't know your engine well, but I cannot think of another ready way for water to get in the oil or v-v, except a cracked block, which is rare. I have read of a leaky intake manifold gasket causing it, but I can't picture that one myself.

My car is getting hot and I don't know why. The first time the lever got in the red I turned my car off, and I found it to be ironic that it wasn't steaming. I called this guy I knew and he said...

did you ever put coolant back in the system?? water is only a temporary solution to get to a shop or say no leaks?? then why was the coolant low in the first place?? how old is the car and how many miles on the car..GM lower intake manifolds are know for leaking .. also possable head gaskets are blown and coolant is leaking internal and burning away.. are the cooling fans coming on?? they should turn on as soon as you turn on your a/c ..if your a/c is broken youll have to let the vehicle run to operating temp and see if they come on ..definatly need more info to help with diag.

Leaking on the right side under the car they told me it might be the evaporator but I don't know where that is in my car I have a 1997 Ford Expedition, I don't even know what it looks like

The evaporator is located in the heater box, it is the AC's equivalent of a heater core. Water is a NORMAL by product of refrigeration, and the clear water must leak out to the ground.

There's a pinhole leak on a valve or a metal connector and I'm losing coolant. I don't know what the part is called. It's located in the middle behind the fan. It looks like a "t"...

This is a coolant tube that goes to the top of the water pump, it is called the upper water pump bypass tube, you will also need to purchase the rubber o-ring

When replacing, make sure you are doing a coolant flush, as old cooland will cause this type of corrosion and failure

good luck

Broken water line or water heater, from winter freeze. When water is turned on tap water goes under the bunk bed area. Could this be the water heater or a hose in the area. We don't know the layout...

Depends on which tap you're turning ON. If it's cold water tap, it's probably a water line. If it's the hot water tap, it could also be a line. As heaters leak, whether the water tap is ON or NOT. Opening a tap valve doesn't cause the water heater to leak. The main question is, was the water heater's tank drained, before the Winter Freeze, when no one was using it? If it wasn't, there's a good chance the water heater will leak too

Hope this helps you solve the leaking water pipes problem. Please let me know Thanks.
