Re: rear soark plugs and wires on ft. wheel dr. minivan
I hated doing those. there is no EASY way to do these my friend. the best way i came up with was to twist eack plug boot in the steel heat socket. get a deep sprrk plug socket with the hex head and use a wrench to break them loose. use an old plug boot from the front cylinder cut from the wire for a removal/install tool. be carefull not to crack the plugs when tightening. i've gotten some from the bottom but usually went arround the engine by the brake booster. boy i'm feelin' for ya. Good luck

I would. Having fresh fluids could not hurt. One of the easiest was to keep your vehicle healthy is to check and change the fluids as recommended by the manufacture. If you change the fluid this will give you a definite marker so that you will know when it should be done again.
this is a lot easier said than done. the easiest way that i know and have done is gain access to the cable closest to the handle, this seems to be the most common place a cable breaks, the next would be at the latch itself. very rarely do the break in the middle. any way, gain access to the cable and cut it. once you have cut it peel off the plastic protective coating. after this is done it you should see the outer steel shell that houses the cable. most of these outer shells are not solid but more of a tight coil configuration. with a good pair of pliers you can "unravel" the outer shell to gain access to the inner cable. hold the outer cable with pliers and using another pair of pliers pull the inner cable and the hood latch should release. this is the easiest way to do it with out chewing your hands up
if you have ever done this, you would know the simplest and easiest way to do it is to take it to an auto glass shop and pay them to do it. once you have done it yourself you will never do it again. those guys have the tools and the fasteners and the knowledge.
The Easiest way to get this done, Is to Purchase a Hayes or Chilton Repair Book for your Vehicle. You can get one at there Websites or any Auto Parts Store. They will give you ALL the Exploded Views of Everything that you need to Know.
gear position sensor is on pass side of trans behind cat. the wiring runs over top of the trans. This repair needs a lift. shop will prob charge about 3 hrs labor. starter should be done from under car also. both should be done at shop, you will spend forever working on it at home.
If you have the NorthStar 4.6L engine this is going to be the easiest water pump you ever done and even if you have not. Auto Zone will be able to help they have a special tool for removing and replacing it. I would suggest replacing the hoses when you do this also. When you get the pump you will also need a O ring for the pump cover, and a new thermostat. get the proper antifreeze also.
Auto Zone should also have some instructions with pic's to help you.. email me if you have any questions.......
