the hoses are held on by internal clips clean off the hose ends and you will see white or green tabs on the filter side of the lines push gently on the tabs (inwards) and you will hear a small click Do that on either side of the line and then pull the line off

There are many different ring stand clamps. Rings of different sizes, thermometer clamps, test tube clamps are three examples.

Bent-nose Pliers are primarily used in making jewelry. So are needle-nosed pliers, and long-nosed pliers. Of course, all three are versatile enough that they can be used for many other things as well.

I have a 94 Astro but the heater control valve should be in the same location. Look under the hood on the passenger side. There are two heater hoses behind the coolant reservoir and windshield washer reservoir. The hoses attach to the heater control valve. The valve has a round vacuum actuator on the side, and two more heater hoses leave the control valve and go into the heater core housing. Cost for the valve will probably be somewhere between $50 & $70 To replace it, remove the coolant reservoir and the windshield washer reservoir. Remember, or mark, the hoses for the washer if you have a rear washer. The electrical connections only go on one way. Remove the clamps securing the front heater hoses and remove the hoses from the valve. Remove the clamps holding the heater hoses coming off the back of the valve where they are attached to the heater core. These two hoses are factory attached to the valve and the new valve (from the dealer) comes with the hoses attached to the rear of the valve. The clamps are back in a small space behind the valve, rather hard to get to. We pulled the bracket with the three square relays situated above the hoses to allow easier access. Install in reverse order. Good luck.

thermostat is located between the rad and the engine under the throttle body inside the aluminum thermostat housing which has two screws holding is together and three medium size water hoses come out of the thermostat Housing.Undo the three clamps holding the three hoses to the housing then the thermostat housing will come out,then unscrew the two screws holding the thermostat housing together then you will find the thermostat.

There are three bolts two top one bottom. remove the clamps on the bolts which are inside the lights. You may not be able to pop them off with screw driver small flat head . So use needle nose pliers it take some time, spread the bottom of the clamps and remove them. Put the new light in and reuse the clamps. You may need to squeeze them back in shape for the new headlights. Wish I had known this before I almost took the front grill off.

Probably because your pliers are sick & have a sore throat. Wait about a week, maybe three and there you go! I hope my answer helped!

Take a good look at the hoses and fittings. They are three different sizes. They can only fit correctly one way.

Take battery out first so there's no energy going to the pump next remove the gas cap so the gas tank releases pressure next locate the gas filter it should be on the passenger side in the front it looks like a barrel that has a hose coming from top ,bottom , and the side and will be easiest to access it from underneath there will be three lines going two and from it with a set of pliers or something similar loosen the little clamps and slide them up the hoses to safely remove the filter replace it with the new one (note: make sure you remember which hose goes where, then slide the clamps back down so they hold the hose tightly to the filter (note: you may have to take off the clamps and re-tighten them manually first) make sure it is very snug plug the battery back in and put the gas cap on and start the car then proceed to check the filter on all hoses for gas leaks repeat until filter is snug in hoses and doesn't leak take for a test drive around the neighborhood and check again do not leave even a small leak!

Underneath by the radiator. White plastic bulb with three hoses on it.

These fuel lines will have speed connections that basically you grab, squeeze and push in than pull out. The connections are located on the driver's side of the fuel tank. and you can relieve the pressure by trying to start the car with the gas pedal absolutely to the floor. Crank it for a few seconds and it should be depressurized.

When this happened to me it was the three vacuum hoses on the transfer case switch were on wrong. There is a nipple on the switch and a hole in the vacuum hoses.

Easy to remove and replace gas tank. Best bet is to get a Haynes or Chilton manual for reference (about $14). If I recall correctly: 1) Disconnect battery 2) Jack up car 3) Siphon gas out of tank 4) Remove three rubber hoses on rear of tank. These are used for gas fill up; remove hose clamps and disconnect. 5) Remove three hoses from front of tank; these hoses go from the fuel pump to the engine. You'll need special fuel line wrenches for this. 6) Disconnect two connectors at the front of the tank. 7) Remove two bolts that hold the exhaust pipe heat shield. You'll want to use penetrating oil on these; they will be corroded. 8) Support tank with a floor jack. Remove the bolts which hold the tank in place. Pivot the tank on the exhaust, tilt and slide out. Installation is opposite of above. Easy to remove and replace gas tank. Best bet is to get a Haynes or Chilton manual for reference (about $14).

your thermostat is inline with your radiator.. its in a junction coming off the bottom radiator three hoses plug into it.

it is inside of an aluminum housing that join three hoses on the drivers side of the engine

It is the plastic block on the top passenger side of the engine with three hoses on it.

Vacuum leak, bad spark plugs, plug wires, or all three. Replace all vacuum hoses, plugs and plug wires. Replace the hoses one at a time so as to not get confused.

its either vacuum hoses . the jeep has a fork that engages the 4 wheel drive system . that could be broke . it is located on passenger side of axle it will have three hoses going to it . 4 bolts hold the part on.

User Avatar

it is above the starter, to the left of the battery if you are facing it. it is an inline.. there should be three hoses that connect together in that general area. where those hoses connect should be a housing the thermostat is in it.

What the Jag manual calls the "cross pipe" is the pipe that connects the two thermostat housings to the water pump inlet, and has the fill cap on top. It is variously called a crossover pipe, a bypass pipe, and several unprintable names. Note that the air balance pipe at the top rear of the engine connecting the two intake manifolds is also called a crossover pipe; try not to get confused. The repair manuals indicate that the crank pulley must be removed to remove the water pump, but the cross pipe can stay where it is. The water pump will come out and go back in without removing the crank pulley. But the pump will not go back on with the crossover pipe connected if the pulley is still on as you have to snake it in over the pulley and the crossover pipe would be a big impediment. So having said that and realizing that you are now going to replace the crossover pipe with the water pump already installed, there is only one way: Lubricate all three of the pipe connections (on the two thermostat housings and the water pump) liberally with 3M water hose sealer. Then lubricate the three matching pipe ends on the crossover pipe with the 3M stuff. Now slip the new, cut to the proper length, hoses onto the crossover pipe. Put two clamps onto each of the three hoses, not tight, just enough so they don't slide off. The two clamps on the right side should be placed so the screw is on top when installed and slightly back. The clamp on the thermostat housing on the left side should be so that it is on the bottom and slightly back so there is enough room for a screwdriver angled down below the header tank. The two clamps on the water pump hose should be on the left side of the hose slightly back so the screwdriver is angled to the left side of the car. If you set the clamps up this way you will save a lot of grief later on. Now push the hoses up onto the crossover pipe as far as they will go. Next place the center (water pump), hose onto the water pump tilting it and the crossover into position. It will take a little pushing and prying with a screwdriver, but it's not too bad and the hardest part is done. "Now, pull all the three hoses into approximately the correct position and lightly tighten the clamps. Now make sure the small pipe on the top of the crossover is clear of the big bolt on the block so that the hose to the overflow tank can be put on without being in a position to rub a hole in it. Tighten all six clamps and you are done."

Follow the three small black silicon hoses coming from your turbocharger/intake system, and You find the valve!

The Fuel pump is located in the gas tank of the vehicle, and it is very easy to replace. Takes about and hour and a half if you take your time, I did mine in about 40 minutes. its two bolts holding the straps up. three hoses and a wire clip on the pump housing and a lock ring boom ur done dont forget the filler neck clamps and the vent hose clamp and the ground wire.
