I have some cold air blowing by my feet, even with the heater on. I was looking under the hood, and it looks like there's a few cracks/pieces missing from the heater assembly. Does this look normal? (Nevermind the dirt, or the date on the photos).
What your looking at is the heater box cover. It's a rubber cover w/ insulation in it that covers the heater box. You can only patch it with the engine in the car...to replace it the cradle must be lowered. I replaced mine when the engine was out...even then it was about a 30 minute ordeal to get it to fit correctly.
What's a good way to patch this. There's a few cracks in this housing that didn't show up too good in the pics, but I think I could get some RTV sealer to seal those cracks. (Is RTV sealer what I should use, or is there something better)? Also, what would you use to fill in that missing piece?
I'm finally getting this patched up today, and I need to know if I can apply the drywall tape and RTV sealer directly to the "yellow filter looking thingy" (technical term ); or do I need to leave a cushion of air between my patch and the "yellow filter looking thingy"?
The drywall tape worked like a charm, and I used the whole tube of RTV. The hole was a lot bigger than I thought it was. As soon as I moved the coil pack out of the way, I was like :holycrap: . I couldn't believe that there was that much plastic missing.
I'm just waiting for the RTV to set, so I can see if this works.
I have a problem with my 1998 cadillac SLS.
I got the "check brake fluid" message on my dash, along with the brake warning light and traction control light coming on.
I checked the level, it was just below MAX.
I also unplug the connector, jumper the 2 leads, then start the car.
This morning the (one-year old) battery suddenly was drained.
Car was driven three days ago and then everything normal and has been sitting locked in the garage since then.
Due to the covid-19 it has been driven a lot less than normal lately, but has been used for at least 2x20 min once a week...
Has the filter hole size been changed for a reason?
I measure a WIX 3675XL hole 19.22 mm, AC Delco PF61E hole 19.52 mm
My 2003 STS takes the WIX, my 2006 STS won't ( WIX hole too small),
What does the "threaded insert" description mean for the AC Delco PF 61E. All filtered appear to...
I have changed the thermostat, temp sensor, flushed and refilled radiator with 50/50 Dexcool, replaced the surge tank cap, cleared small amount of corrosion from metal bolt and hose returning to expansion tank, just completed the block test twice and it did not change to yellow. I don't see any...
