How tight are the turbo hose clamps on a Detroit, '07 Freightliner Columbia?

It 's a clamp with a spring per loaded spring torque is not the issue seal is .
Break it off cut it off what ever you have to do heat sometimes work but you have the boot to consider .
Other then that get a new clamp and clean all surfaces and tighten it untill you feel you have a good seal its not folding fluid in just road grime and dust out

How do i change a tire on a 1988 ford f-150

Before doing anything make sure you have air in your spare..,A good Jack and spare tire removal kit....The kit should be under or behind the passenger seat..I don't like the factory Jack it comes with because sometimes you need a good strong block of wood to achieve the height you need to contact the vehicle..and sometimes they don't work correctly...Some spare tire release tools are under the hood..It is a long skinny rod ...You have to use rod or rod kit to stick through the rear bumper at the slot and turn the rod counterclockwise after you feel the rod connect with the release mechanism..,Lower the spare until it touches the ground then keep turning so you can have enough slack to remove cable from spare tire...Set parking brake while in park and use the lug nut removal tool to break loose the lug nuts before raising vehicle..They are removed counter clockwise..Don't take nuts off just break them loose...Block front wheels for safety with anything solid you can find if you are stranded..If you can't find anything rely on parking brake..It should be safe in park but safety first....Jack vehicle up..,remove all lug nuts put them in a safe clean place don't lose them..Remove flat tire..Install spare..Start each lug nut and tighten them all tight by hand..Snug each nut clockwise in a star pattern ..Get them good and tight but don't try to hurt yourself or break the stud...Lower vehicle,remove Jack..Snug each lug nut once again for safety..Put flat in truck bed for now rather than back in the spare storage area because it has to be repaired..Crank spare cable that held spare under truck clockwise until it stops.Remove tool..,Gather all tools used., remove blocks from front tires.,Head to a tire store...

You have a leak in the vacuum system somewhere. If your brakes are soft or squishy or don't engage until the pedal is almost to the floor, then it is your master cylinder. If not, then you have to hunt it down but if it is that loud that shouldn't be a problem. Just follow the sound until you find where it is coming from (may want to wear hearing protection). If a hose is disconnected, plug it in and see if that fixes it. Does your car have any idle problems?

1998 Grand Cherokee Jeep...4.0..idles rough and barely keep it running at low speed..seem to run at 65 and 70mph..changed distrutor cap, rotar and plugs, and wires..

Check any rubber hose pieces between the PVC valve and the motor (intake). Normally a leaking hose will have a soft squishy area in the hose where the rubber is melting and the hose will create a vacuum leak at that point. You can tape over the squishy area with electrical tape (get it tight) and if it runs better you should replace the hose pieces. This leak will cause the motor to run very rough at idle, can cause the motor to race when starting it, can cause the vehicle to shift hard (when motor surges) and can throw scan codes indicating Lean Bank 1 AND Lean Bank 2 (presence of both codes is good indicator that vacuum leak is the cause).

Squishy brake feel with long pedal travel but brakes stop the car

You have to remove the air trapped in the hydraulic system. Look at change of brakefluid in a repair handbook and perform it as described.

Useful to change the brakefluid at least once every five years anyway.

How do I bleed air from the brakes

Two persons are required: one to bleed and other to press brake pedal.
Remove wheel and hub of the side you want to bleed. You will find the bleed nut there. Open it a little until some oil flows out. Ask the other person to press brake pedal with steady pushing and withdrawing until he feels its tight while you slowly tighten the nut. Adjust tightness of pedal by trial. Don't forge to refill the brake fluid after bleeding all the brakes.

Do give my solution the highest rating if it solves your problem. Thank you for using fixya!

Brake problem (squishy sound)

A sound like that that you can hear inside has to be the vacumn assist tank leaking air. Did you bleed the new master cyl ?

Poor breaks

When you open the breaking system you allow air to enter the break lines and that will cause squishy or weak breaks. You have too "bleed" the air out of the lines now. The way to do this is to have someone help you with this process. They will need to pump the break pedal until the break pedal is stiff and hold pressure on the pedal while you open the valve on the caliper or wheel cylinder(disc or drum) until you have a steady stream of fluid with no air. To ensure you get all the air out you need to start from the passenger rear tire,then driver rear, pass. front, driver front. Make sure you slip one end of a hose over the bleeder valve and the other end in a container so that you don't allow the break fluid to contaminate the new brakes,
