If you are referring to the tube connected to the pullout sprayer head on your faucet your best bet is to contact the manufacturer. Moen is excellent about warranty claims and will send you the part free of charge. If you don't know the model look up the manufacturers website and most usually have pictures you can browse. Sometimes by giving a description to customer service they can help you find the correct model. There is no way to "patch" or fix the hole.

When I poor water into my Bmw it poors straight to the ground

Assuming the water (hopefully you mean water/anti-freeze coolant mixture) is going into the filler cap hole at the top of the radiator expansion reservoir, there are several possibilities: lower radiator hose not connected, radiator drain plug missing or loose or gasket missing, hole in expansion reservoir or radiator, coolant level sending unit missing or loose or gasket missing.

How to install a freeze plug

You just set the plug into the hole and tap it in evenly till it is seated-easy to do if you have enough room to work. Another option is to buy a rubber expansion plug and fit it in the hole. As you tighten the center nut on the expansion plug, it expands the rubber to seal the hole. Works great, where room to work is a problem.

We have a leak in a side hole that looks like a plug in our's a 1996 Buick LeSabre

Probably a freeze plug. Is it a metal plug press fit into the head? If so, to remove, drill hole in center of plug, then use a slide hammer (dent puller will do) to pull it out. Clean/sand hole in head smooth and clean with brake cleaner to remove residue. 2 choices for replacement: use a rubber expansion type plug (easier) or a metal OEM plug like the one that came out. (harder, as these are press fit and go off center easily and then they leak again.) I always use the expansion type. Measure the hole in head accurately (most are in mm) to get proper replacement size. Auto store listings are not very good........

Expansion slota

eMachines Support > ET1331 desktop computer > Product Views > Rear View,

The metal covers that have the Plus sign ( + ) holes, are Expansion Slot Covers.

Insert a flat tipped screwdriver blade in the + sign hole.
Insert the screwdriver blade horizontally, in the + sign hole, on the right side. ( ---- , not vertical I )

Gently bring the back of the screwdriver down.
This will make the metal slot cover, bend the small metal tab that is holding it.

Go to the + sign hole on the Left side. Do the same on the Left side as the above.

Bring the back of the screwdriver up.

Keep working the metal expansion slot cover back, and forth, until the two small metal tabs that are holding it in, break.

Remove the metal expansion slot cover.

Before you begin, ensure that the expansion slot cover you wish to remove, lines up with the wireless adapter card.

Intake manifold leaking coolant at expansion tube nipple

It is pressed in. I usually just take the nipple out and run a threader into the hole and place a piece of threaded copper pipe into the newly tapped hole. The factory uses a thin steel tube and they rust out if the cooling system is not properly maintained.

Procedure for replacing fluid in our rear projection television

Changing Projection TV Coolant
1. Tip the TV set so the expansion chambers are pointed up. The expansion chamber is a small white/clear plastic bulb-like thing
that is attached to one side of each of the CRT's up near the top lens. In some TVs, the expansion chambers are already pointed
up - In this case you don't have to tip the TV.
Or if you find this difficult remove all 3 CRT tubes from the metal cradle they are screwed to & lift each tube completely out you will need to unplug & disconect all leads from the crt.
2. Cover the circuit boards below the CRT's with several paper towels to prevent accidentally spilling any coolant onto the boards.
The coolant is corrosive and will destroy the circuit boards. Don't skimp on the paper towels here - they are cheap!!!
3. Remove the four screws that hold on the focusing lens assembly and remove the focusing lens assembly.
4. Note the position of the expansion chamber then remove the expansion chamber. It will need to be reinstalled in the exact
same position so remember the position or take a picture if you need to. There is a small o-ring on the neck of the expansion
chamber where it threads onto the CRT housing - Don't loose it!
5. Use the baster and tube to suck the fluid out from the hole where the expansion chamber was removed. This hole is fairly small...
maybe 5/16" or so.
6. Once most of the fluid is out, remove the four screws that hold on the lens cover plate.
7. Remove the lens cover plate, the lens & the large o-ring. (be gentle with the o-rings!!!)
8. Clean the CRT chamber & lens with denatured alcohol. Use 100% cotton balls so you don't scratch anything.
9. Clean the CRT chamber and lens with distilled water. Again, use 100% cotton balls so you don't scratch anything. This will rinse
out the alcohol residue. You need to use distilled water for this so there is no mineral residue.
10. Gently clean the large o-ring with distilled water (don't use the alcohol because it might eat the o-ring) Dry off the o-ring and
lightly coat it with 100% pure silicone (not siliconized acrylic caulking or acrylic latex caulking - ONLY USE 100% SILICONE).
Use your fingers to rub a thin layer of silicone all over the surface of the o-ring. Then place the o-ring in the groove in the CRT
11. Place the lens in its position on the o-ring.
12. Place the lens cover plate over the lens and install the four screws.
13. Clean your baster and tubing with denatured alcohol then rinse with distilled water.
14. Use the baster and tube to suck clean fluid from the bottle and install it into the CRT through the expansion chamber hole. Go
really slow when it is almost full to minimize overflow. Wipe up any overflow immediately. There will be a small air pocket in
the CRT when you are done - you will not be able to fill the chamber 100% - This is O.K. Just be sure to fill it as far as possible
so the fluid is just up to the edge of the expansion chamber hole.
15. Install the expansion chamber. Be sure to install it in the same position as it was before you removed it. Also be sure that the
small o-ring is on the neck of the chamber before you thread it on. The chamber is just plastic so don't over-tighten it or you
might damage it. Screw it on as tight as you can go by hand and then give it about 1/8 of a turn with pliers. (you might have to
use needle-nose pliers to get a good grip on it.)
16. Place the focusing lens assembly into position and install the four screws.
17. Turn on the TV and check for leaks over the next 20 minutes. Remember, you have not yet removed all the paper towels from
inside the TV. Remove these once you know there are no leaks.
Other things that should be done after replacing the fluid include...
1. Clean the mirror
2. Clean the top lenses of the focusing assemblies
3. Focus the CRT's
4. Adjust the convergence
Here is a list of things you will need:
1. Turkey baster
2. Vinyl tube
3. Cooling Fluid
4. 100% cotton balls
5. Paper towels
6. Denatured alcohol
7. Distilled water
8. Pliers
9. Screw driver
Ensure you use only the coolant made specificaly for projection CRTs
