Hi,

With the pressure involved especially when turning, perhaps you are better off with a new hose.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Leak under distributer


The most common cause is the heater hose coming off the head, below and behind the distributer. Usually the distributer is leaking oil, which gets on the hose and damages it. If you don't fix the oil leak, which could be the distributer "o" ring, (inexpensive) or the distributer shaft seal, (expensive) cut a piece of the old hose and use it to protect the new hose from the oil.

When bleeding brakes the pedal doesn't go down after i open the bleeder screw but, fluid comes out?


It's bleeding by gravity. Here's what to do: you need a helper. Put a 2X4 or similar piece of wood or something under the brake pedal. Now have someone slowly pressing the pedal down, you open the bleed screw. When pedal hits bottom, have helper hold it there while you tighten bleeder. Repeat until no air bubbles come out of bleeder. Best practice is to put a small hose on bleed screw, and put end of hose into a small container partially filled with brake fluid, so the end of hose is submerged in fluid. When bleeder is opened, any trapped air in the system will come out as bubbles. No more bubbles, no more air in that part. Check brake reservoir, fill as needed, and move to next wheel. Never reuse brake fluid. Only brake fluid from a sealed container. Brake fluid readily attracts moisture, and that is bad.

Why do I say a piece of wood under the pedal? This will protect your brake master cylinder from possibly being ruined while bleeding.
Were you to push the brake pedal all the way to the floor, the push rod or piston in the master will travel beyond its normal movement. The inner seals then travel over a portion of the inner cylinder that never gets touched by the seals. Sometimes (often) a little layer of crud builds up there where the rod and seals never travel. Run the seal over that portion a few times and the seal will be ruined. Then you will need a new master cylinder.
Good luck. Oh, and if the master is ruined this way, you will know it quickly. Brake pedal won't hold, but will keep slowly going to the floor and little or no braking action.

Ac will not cool. oil splatter inside hood . do I need another compressor?


If the oil splatter is all around the compresser clutch and not in other places, then yes you probably need a new compressor. Usually the front seal in the compressors go out and you'll see oil and dirt buildup on the compressor clutch face.

It is possible that the lip seal being replaced could fix the problem, but more times than not, the seal is wore out due to something wrong in the compressor. You'll probably be money ahead to replace the compressor unless you know the bearings are good and the compressor shaft has no side to side movement.

If the oil buildup is elsewhere than the front of the compressor, it could be a bad hose or o-ring. In that case, you may not need to replace the compressor.

Evaporative emmission control system large leak detected


that can be something as simple as a bad or loose gas cap ... the cap must seal in order to develop a slight vacuum in the tank thats is used by the emmission control system. less likely but possible is damage to the several hoses that go from the tank to the evaporation control system in the engine compartment..
check your gas cap for damaged or missing rubber seal .. or just replace it ... clean the filler tube if needed so that the gas cap will seal properly .. check the flex hose (if any) from the filler nozzle to the tank ...
