Super expensive labor costs to replace the high pressure power steering hose (in my car anyway) due to its location behind the engine. I started buying power steering fluid with "stop leak" and adding it every couple of days when my steering would become difficult and start groaning. I did this for a couple or three weeks. My auto repair man also added a conditioner of some kind and now, even though I still know that I need to replace the hose, I can save the dollars over the next few weeks and do it on my schedule. It's been over a month since my steering has given me any trouble at all. I hope this helps you.

you need to have a pulley puller to get the pulley off if you don't have one most auto zone part stores have a loan a tool program and they can help you with that on most powersteering pumps the high pressure line will be a fitting or bolt on and the return line is usually just a squeeze clamp hope this helps good luck

SOURCE: need 2 change brakes on 94 cadillac deville

Brakes are something that most drivers should not attempt mostly because when you step ,on the brakes you want to stop. You don't say if you have caiper brakes all around or just on the front. I have worked on brakejobs for quite a few years and always do the calipers too. repairs are expensive nowadays as with most repair shops. most shops charge one for things that they don't change so it is expensive. To do a brake job properly one needs specialized tools and know how.

SOURCE: I HAVE A 1994 CADILLAC STS AND NEEDING TO REPLACE A HEATER CORE

This can be a very difficult repair. If you pay someone to do it, the labor costs are very high due to the amount of labor necessary to even access the heater core. I cannot tell you step by step how to do this. I can however tell you that you will have to remove enough of the dash to allow access to the core. Go slow, be careful and do not break any of the parts. Use common sense to figure out how the parts come apart. Look for screws and clips. Some plastic parts just snap together. Take digital photos as you go along to help you in reassembly. It is just a matter of getting to the core and removing it. Of course you will need to drain and flush the cooling system, replace the thermostat, and add a fresh 50/50 mix of DexCool & Distilled water after installing the new core. Be sure and set the heat to high when pouring in the fresh coolant. Bleed all air from the system.

SOURCE: Replace 2005 Cadillac CTS water pump

drain the coolant.remove belt by rotating belt tensioner cllockwise. water pump pulley will require a holding tool to keep it from turning while removing bolts. access to air ratchet can sometimes eliminate the need to hold but be careful cause thats a good way to skin some knuckles. also make installation more difficult to obtain proper torque. after pulley is off just a few water pupm mounting bolts remain. clean and dry gasket surface very well before reinstalling.

My stering wheel is lock how can i unlocked


If the steering wheel is under pressure (can happen even with the wheels straight ahead) the lock mechanism can be putting pressure on the key making it very hard for the key to release the lock mechanism. Try pulling on the wheel in one direction and turning the key. If nothing, try turning the wheel the other direction and try turning the key. You may need to replace the lock mechanism. This usually involves being able to turn the key in the lock or having to drill the lock. You are probably going to need a locksmith for this one. You will need a replacement lock cyliner mechanism if the locksmith has to punch the lock.
