You can't have a leak in your cooling system, period. You need to get the car back to the mechanic if you have a coolant leak (albeit a small one). Over time you'll continue to lose coolant when the system pressurises and this is unacceptable as the car won't be reliable. Eeventually the coolant will boil and the engine overheat when enough coolant has ...

Yes its normal. Saw this bundle of water under the car. Frightened me initially. Its water due to condensation. Its nothing to worry.

Replace it, too may things can go wrong with an injector, weak spring, pitted pintle seat, shorted solenoid winding's, etc. Its not worth the time to try cleaning it.

I would start by running though a tank of injector cleaner or seafoam and see if it cleans itself out. If that doesn't work, you can pull it out and try to clean it with carb cleaner and an air compressor. I THINK you can open an injector with a 9V battery. If not, you may need to rig up something. 12v 1A power brick with a fuse should work. If that ...

If the engine is completely shut down, then the injector should be closed and there will not be any pressure in the system as the fuel pressure regulator and the pump would be off (although I am assuming there would be some residual pressure in the system). You can check the said injector by taking it out, putting few drops of fuel inside the injector and ...

Use the correct Master Cylinder, they sill make them for your model. Its not really a 2 line (dual line MC), it is manufactured to fit different models, use the correct line out for your model so you do not have to bend stock the line. If this is what you have tighten the plug more using a 6 point socket to stop the leak. You can buy one at this site

I'm going to post this answer as preliminary and will update when more information is available. If there is water visibly leaking from an engine, there are a few major culprits: hose connections, the water pump, and freeze plugs. Since the water is coming from a "hole in the engine", I think we can cross off water hose connections. If the water is ...

It is just as @Ben stated ... it will have a double inverted flare with metric threads. Look it up online and find the exact part (brake line) to match. It will save you a bunch of time and a whole lot of agony. I'd look it up for you, but the Getz was not marketed in the US as any model. Most manufacturers sell the individual, pre-bent brake lines. You can ...

Getting them to break loose is the biggest challenge. I use a good penetrate, soak them several times over 3-4 days, use brake line wrenches to turn the nuts to prevent rounding the brake line nuts, as they are soft steel. Cheap brake line wrenches will round the nuts, buy good quality wrenches of the proper size, metric or american. Use a wrench on the ...

There are three places I can think the water would be flowing out of from the back area of the engine. The engine in your Yukon should be the GenI Small Block Chevrolet (SBC) engine (I believe they started putting LSx motors in them in 1999). The SBC has water passages through the intake manifold at the front and back of the engine. If one of these passages ...

"put my hand on the exhaust pipe and there was maybe a very low flow." You have found your problem, there should be 0 flow.

Years ago when I used to inspect vehicles for a living. There was one thing that would cause such nasty fumes after 30 minutes or so. It was over spray from the anti-rust coating that sometimes would end up on exhaust parts and cause pungent sulfurous stench when hot. If it were an exhaust leak it would noticed a lot sooner and have a noise as well.
