Howdy, hwile I don't have the whole picture yet, you can likely remove the broken off piece with an inside wrench kit; it is a cam wrench that fits inside the pipe and grips the inner wall when turned. Now, if you tell us what sort of intake and the size and type of pipe you have, we can help you with the rest of your issue, too.

There are MANY tricks to remove a threaded piece like this:

1. With a Dremel tool and a cutoff carborumdum disc cut a shallow slot in the remaining piece and use a straight bladed screw driver to remove. This can only be done if the screw is above or flush with the surface.

2. Carefully drill a small hole in the piece fairly well centered. Use an "EasyOut" to remove the broken part.

3. Carefully drill several small shallow holes on the top of the broken part in a line so as to form a slot for a screwdriver.

4. Carefully drill a hole JUST the right size into the broken part and then drive an Allen wrench into the hole to turn the broken part. The hole has to be just the right size so the wrench can peal tiny pieces off to grab the broken part.. this is tricky to get the size just right.

5. Use a detist drill to cut a slot.

In all these use a penetrating oil or CRC226 to make it easier to turn.

I have a 93 crand caravan the water pump went out and in the process of changing it bolts broke how can i fix it?

If the bolts broke off inside the engine block they must be extracted, buy a easy out set of bolt extractors choose the appropriate size drill to use in relation to the broken bolt to be removed then dril a hole through the old broken off peice remaining inside the bock take the easy out extrctor and push it into the drilled hole then tap it into the hole firmly proceed to tur n the extractor counter clockwise to remove the broken off peice. whatever you do don't use an extractor that is too large it may not work you can always go up on the size later.

Bolt broken inside near carb. that holds throttle, etc. There are two of these bolts and now it is loose and will not remain on when choke and gas is needed.

I am asuming you are refering to the manifold bolts? If so, you need to remove the carb and plastic intake. My experience is that the screw probably vibrated out and will only need a new one, However if the screw is broken off in the hole you will need to drill it out and retap the hole/ I believe its a #10/24 by 1 inch long allen head works best. remember to use blue loctite on the threads to keep it from happening again.

Water remains in diswasher

HI. check the following areas for fualts.

1. Air gap / Drain hoses
If there is an air gap (located in the sink, near the faucet), check to see if it is clogged. Unscrew the top cap and see if there is anything blocking inside. Note: If there is no air gap installed, the dishwasher might not drain properly.

If the drain hose is clogged, the dishwasher would not drain. If there is an air gap installed, it is very common that a hose going from the air gap into the garbage disposer is clogged. Remove and clean the hose. Make sure to reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher.

Note: If you recently had a garbage disposer installed, it is common to overlook removing the drain plug.

2. Broken belt
Some dishwasher models use a belt to drive the pump. Replace the belt if found broken.

Note: Sometimes the belt would just come off the pump. Even though it might not be broken, it is recommended that you replace the belt, because it is probably too stretched out.

3. Pump
Some models have two impellers inside the pump - one, wash impeller, takes care of the wash cycles, the other, drain impeller, drains the water out. If the drain impeller is broken (broken blades, shaft), the dishwasher would not drain. Replace any broken pump components.

4. Drain solenoid
Some models (for example most GE dishwashers) use a drain solenoid to drain water out. Sometimes the solenoid gets stuck, preventing the water from draining out. Try to free up the solenoid. If unsuccessful, you might have to replace the pump assembly.

5. Motor
If the motor is stuck, it is sometimes possible to free it up by manually spinning the motor.

Replace the motor if defective.

6. Timer
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).

Water will not intake in a Kemore front load washer. Waters is on and we confirmed hoses and water lines clear

Have you removed the hose supplying the machine to check if the filter inside the inlet valve is blocked , or fo that matter is water being supplied down the hose?
Remember that the hose will be under mains pressure so have a towel handy when you remove the connector.
If it is clean then leave the hose off place your finger on the plastic thread of the inlet valve and get someone to set the machine going
You should feel a slight vibration if the coil which switches the water inlet valve on is being activated (Some of them really make a strong buzzing noise)
There is no electricity in that area so do not be frightened to put your finger on it.
If the filter is clean and the coil is buzzing you should get water going into the machine.
If the coil is not buzzing it has gone open circuit and needs replacing.
Worst case is that the programmer has broken (Very rare)

Hose from water pump to intake manifold above and behind water pu

this is a water pump bypass hose connector to the manifold, take the broken piece to a parts store and show it to them, it should have the threads still broken off in the manifold so explain that. To remove the broken piece ask for a EZ OUT to fit the piece you took to the store.
It is common for these to become brittle and break off but it is a simple fix.

Broken hose connection on intake manifold

Not really an easy way.
The easiest way to fix it would be to replace the manifold.
Other then that, you will need to work the old threaded piece out of the manifold, and then retap the hole (the same size). The re tapping is simply to clean up any damage you might incur during the removal of the broken piece.
Is there any of the old broken piece sticking out? If so, you can try heating the area, and see if you can twist out the broken one.

There were a number of GM vehicles that had similar problems, the the fix is always somewhat painful.
