1. purchase a set of "easy-out" threaded bolts. These have the thread in reverse, so that as you tighten the easyout, it turns the bolt out.

2. drill a hole in the center of the stud, no larger the 1/2 the diameter of the stud.

3. insert the proper size of easy-out bolt

4. use a wrench to tighen easy-out and remove bolt.

Note: It is always a good idea to spray the stud with wd40 or loosen-all to help release the stud from its housing.

It goes into the water pump. You remove a plug and screw in the block heater. Between the engine and the firewall. You can get at it from underneath.

Take the oil filter off and remove the threaded piece that the oil filter screws onto with a #10 allen wrench, it will fit up inside of the center. Then with I believe a #40 torks remove the two bolts that holds the adapter to the block, once the adapter is removed, screw the center threaded piece that you first removed into the block and install a new oil filter. Then you can remove the oil lines from the radiator.

Weld a larger nut over the broken bolt and let it cool. It will turn out for you.

Sometimes they use that threaded drain plug location to attach a knock sensor. So if you see a knock sensor threaded into the side of the block that may be where the coolant drain is located.

if it has a northstar engine, it requires a special tool to install/remove. the pump is threaded into the engine block. the store where you get the tool from should be able to point it out to you more clearly.

Chevy Tahoe Heater Return Pipe Hey GMMerlin, I have a leak coming from that threaded fitting for the heater hose. Can this be fixed simply by retightening the fitting or do I need to buy a new one? You will have to replace it...most likely when you touch it, it will break and leave the threaded part in the intake.. Its a PIA to remove the broken off portion, but you don't have to take the manifold off to do it. Go to www.thread-saver.com for a new tool to remove the broken part. if it breaks off you can get the threads out with a small punch and then use wet dry vac. to remove small parts in hole. you can just buy the threaded part and use hose clamp to connect after you cut off the end of hose that is crimped it has a small lock ring that will also go bad or crack not a great design by chev. do it yourself in 10 min or so

If the bolt broke off inside the block, you can purchase a tool called an easy out. This tool allows you to remove any broken bolts of various sizes.

It is threaded into the block, under the intake manifold.

just aside of the oil filter, threaded into the bottom front of block.

Begin by training the water from your 2003 engine block. Remove the wiring harness from the block heater. Remove the block heater retaining bolts. The block heater will come out. Reverse the process to install your new block heater.

the easiest way is to drill it out. drill a hole thru center of broken bolt, make sure it is smaller then the diameter of the bolt. after drilling use a easy out to remove the threads of the bolt. check that the threads in the head are ok! then put in new bolt.

pull the oilpan and punch it out.ANS 2 - The previous solution can be done, but it's much easier to just grip the dip TUBE with large pliers and pull it out of the block, along with the broken dipstick. These tubes are almost always just a tight fit in the block, not welded or fixed in.

The oil sending unit is below the intake manifold, it is threaded into the block.

I have good news and I have bad news. First the good news - Christmas is coming. Now the bad news - It seems the only way to remove a broken bolt from an engine block is to drill it out - see you local mechanic for further details

Disconnect batt, Raise front pass corner of car so can get under, follow pos. cable to end-it is in flywheel/trans area underneath. Remove batt cable & wires (usually 2-3) from solenoid on top. Remove 2-3 bolts threaded into block with socket wrench. Be careful pulling the last one, it weighs over 40#.

Usually, yes. A broken rod normally damages the engine block making repair impossible.Usually, yes. A broken rod normally damages the engine block making repair impossible.
