How do you repair a hairline crack near core plug?

This is not easy. You're talking about a small crack in the engine block, I assume. Ideally you should stop the crack from getting longer by drilling a small hole at the exact end of it. Then the crack needs to be welded, probably after the engine has come out (depending on accessibility). But this is a hell of a big job for a small hairline crack. You may find that cleaning the area throughly and using one of the epoxy pastes around (JB Weld is a very good one) that you can achieve a good repair cheaply and easily. But drill the small hole first.

Other than that JB Weld is a good bet if you know where the leak is generating from.

Where is the thermostat housing on a 2002 Ford Focus?

The Thermostat Housing is located on the right hand side of the engine. Remember this is FWD configuration so think of it as being mounted on the "rear" of the engine in terms of normal V6, V8, L6, etc. Trace the radiator hose (right side of radiatoras you are looking from the front of the engine) and you will find it leads to the "water outlet" on the thermostat housing. There are a total of 4 hoses attached to the Thermostat Housing. It is a black plastic (OEM) housing held onto the engine by 3 bolts. Note: ther are 3 Torx screws visible, they for the water outlet housing and can be worked on while the Thermostat Housing is off of the engine. Plastic can easily crack/score so be gentle whe removing the hoses and hardware. This housing is notorious for leaking even when a new gasket (O-Ring) is installed. I suggest dressing the housing mount surface with a small bead of grey RTV along with a new gasket prior to installing. Be sure to use only a small bead in an effort not to get excess into the housing or to foul the gasket.

I have a small crack in my front window of my car. Can someone do window repair or do I need to replace the entire window?

Genrally repairs are just for holes like when a rock first hits. sometimes small cracks can be fixed. You will probably have to replace it. If the crack in your windshield is small enough you may be able to fix it yourself. There are windshield repair kits that inject a resin material into the crack, if it's too large for that it can be repaired by a professional without having to replace the entire windshield.

Do cat fleas live in electrical goods?

Fleas of any variety will live in any small crack they can fit into -- hardwood floors, for instance, gaps under moldings, and small gaps in any appliance housing. So if there is a small crack in the housing, such as, perhaps, where the two halves of a plastic case fit together, then yes, there could be a few fleas in there. They are generally happier in carpets, though, the carpet fibers hide them very well.
