The procedure to replace the tail light is as follows:--- 1) Open the trunk. 2) Push the trunk fasteners in until it pops using a flathead screwdriver to remove the lining and access the bulb sockets. 3) Remove the frame away from trunk and you will see the light bulb assembly. 4)Twist the bulb out of the assembly towards counter clock wise direction.It will come out. 5)To remove whole tail light assembly.Its connected with screws.Remove those screws and disconnect the wiring connector from its side and lift the tail light assembly out. 6)But if you want to only replace the bulb then no need to remove whole tail light assembly out.Just remove bulb and replace new bulb in reverse and install all parts in reverse. -------------- This should help.Thanks.Helpmech.

ABS units do not have weep holes. It might be a bleeder valve, but it's not supposed to leak. Have it looked at.

For a car to run it must have ignition, fuel and air (for combustion). each of these can be checked easily:

1) If you have a rubber glove or plastic bad, take off the to the distributor (from the coil) and hold it with the glove or plastic material about 1/4 inch from a piece of clear metal on the car body or engine (a bolt works). If it sparks the ignition is ok when you have someone crank over the engine.

2) take the top of the air cleaner off to see if you can confirm gasoline is being pumped when someone cranks the engine. Or, get some starter fluid and spray it into the air cleaner when it is cranked over by someone. If it starts and dies again it is either your fuel pump or it is out of gas. If the air cleaner is dirty try the above without it (replace if dirty).

If the above does not work it needs to be checked by a mechanic.

If they fog up when you turn the heater on, you could have a leaking heater core. You should also be able to detect the smell of antifreeze.

Hi and welcome to FixYa!

Try to have an oil change. The present motor oil inside the engine can be a little sludgy and an oil change can resolve this.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

not really. The engine uses hydraulic lash adjusters, so there is nothing for him to adjust. If the engine has been run at all, the valves should be seated. If not, maybe the guides were over-knurled. Can't really tell why they are clicking. Can he provide specifics of what was done to the engine? Does it have new lash adjusters? Were the guides knurled or what was done with the guides? What was done to the valves? Are the springs new? Are the camshafts new? etc. etc.
