Air conditioners lower air temperature by drawing warm air across cold cooling fins. When this happens, water vapor in the air condenses to water droplets. The droplets roll down the fins by gravity to the bottom of the air conditioner. The water drains out via tube, or opening in the air conditioner casing to the ground. This is all perfectly normal and is no cause for concern.

if it leaks from the bottom it should mean the tank is overflowing, i.e. the fuel inlet seal leaks or is dirty. Remove it the carb, open it, clean everywhere, blow some air where the fuel was flowing. By pressing on the seal you should be able to stop the flow of air. If not, you know wich seal is faulty... Make sure everything is very clean inside. No water is acceptable at the bottom of the tank (it can happen.) Any liquid inside the floater is a bad sign; it must only contain air, otherwise it won't close the fuel inlet when the tank level is good... -> overflow! Good luck.

My coolant isnt staying in recovery tank hoses look what else should i check and the hose from tank the short one does not hook up to anything the one by the cap

You need enough coolant to fill bottom of tank when the engine is cool, so you might have to add coolant. There should be a line showing on the tank for cold level, don't overfill. When coolant gets hot it flows into tank then sucks back into engine when cooling off. The small hose is for an overflow and to let the tank breathe.

What type coolant to use in my 2006 honda 750 spirit, and do i fill it from bottom reserve tank or the top

Use only non silica formula anti freeze like OEM Honda or GM Dexcool , the scrubbing particles in automotive antifreeze can damage the ceramic seal in you motorcycle water pump. To change the antifreeze, find the low point of the system. Some cycles have a drain on the bottom of the radiator. Most have a small drain bolt located on the water pump housing cover. Place a pan under the drain bolt, loosen the radiator cap (this will allow the anti freeze to flow faster), and remove the drain bolt. Replace the drain bolt. To top up or fill the system, first, fill the radiator to the top. Replace the radiator cap, then locate the over flow tank and fill it to the full mark. After short drive and a cool down period , recheck the level in the over flow bottle and top up the radiator and over flow bottle as needed.

How to drain71- 40 .where is drain need to replace hearer need to drain first. 50 gal

There is usually a spigot right at the base of the water heater. Thread a garden hose on the spigot and route the garden hose outside. Of course be sure to pull the power breaker first. After you are sure that the power is off, turn the spigot handle and let the water flow. Be sure that you turn the inlet valve off that is located on the top feed pipe. Be sure to turn the feed back on before you power up as this will ensure that the upper and lower calrods are covered before you power on.

2002 Jetta 1.8T blew 40A cooling fan fuse - overheated, destroyed 4 way cooling hose connector - replaced all- now it still runs very hot, inside temp reads 190 (but temp is much higher), cooling fans run...

Then replace the thermostat, because if on lower hose not hot and on upper hose scalding hot = antifreeze flow blocked by the thermostat wich remains closed!!!

I opened my water pump housing on my 97 deville and the water pump looks fine and turns with key. i replaced a radiator and new thermostat just want some help before spending more money.

The most common overheating problem with the Northstar engine is a blocked purge line. It's job is to purge air out of the cooling system.
There is a small diameter hose coming from near the top of the coolant tank(not the cap!),this is the purge line.
With the engine idling,pull the purge line from the tank,if there is no coolant flow from this small hose,it is blocked and this will cause overheating.If the hose is clear, check for blockage at the nipple on the tank or trace the hose further back until you locate the blockage.

How to remove water pump from 1999 pontiac grand am GT

After you drain coolant remove the larger hose at the bottom of over flow tank and the 2 smaller hoses at the top. remove the 1 bolt holding the overflow tank on and remove tank. Next take serpentine belt. Take the 4 bolts off holding on the water pump pulley and remove pulley. Next remove the 5 bolts holding water pump in. Clean water pump housing of old gasket and clean with alcohol or paint thinner to remove any residue. Use a small amount of RTV sealant along with a new gasket and put in the 5 bolts tightening them by hand. Next tighten the bolt a quarter turn at a time until tight.put on pulley, put in overflow tank and attach bolt and 3 hoses .

Water heaters

That's a job if the water heater is below the window. You will have to us a bucket or pail and just keep dumping it out the window unless you have some kind of pumping system. You will not be able to completely empty the tank but you will get most of the settlement out for maintenance.

Cleaner does not dispense

Check to make sure that the back end of the top housing is tight against the bottom, Sometimes they break loose. Make sure that the gasket at the bottom of the tank is on and is in place. Does the hand spray work? If it does then the heat inside the handle is plugged up. Pump belt broke or is slipping, could have a bad pump. The cap for the flow indictor is leaking air. There are alot off reasons why it may not be spraying.
