Quick fix for crack winshields..

In times like this every penny counts, trying to budget your self is a must!.., Experience is the greatest gift that we earn. Not to long ago I found a small crack dot in my wife winshield, knowing that I'm in a buget I, over look it for a while. One day I notice that the crack has expande to a long thin crack line and getting worst? I couldn't afford to get a replacement winshield right at the moment so I thougt how to prevent from cracking more.. So I decide to use some type of epoxy or glue that will work in glass or ceramics. There is a quite of them in the market so I chose Super Glue or Krazy Glue wich they do bond good with glass or ceramics. First make sure that the crack or thin line to be glue is clean from debri or any other particules in the cracks, open your tube as dericted make sure you have a small piece of cleaning rag and a few Q tips. Dont forget to have a bit of acetone or like I do, I take some of my wife nail polish remover wich works good. Fill the crack or run the glue down the line of crack. Clean any dripping with the acetone or nail polish remover using some Qtips or cleaning rag, let dry and there you will have a temporary solution to prevent your glass from spreading the crack. the bonding agent of glue will keep glass from spreading more. But remember is just a temporary solution until you can fix it by replacing your winshield with the expertise of a tecnician http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Super_Glue_tube.jpg

Penny fell in to cigarette lighter. I removed penny after several sparks while driving. All seemed well but when I arrive at destanation I noticed battery gage was very low. Soon car died as battery died. Could the penny have shorted out a fuse? If so where can I locate said fuse? objeans@gmail.com


a penny will definitly short the fuse every time. fuse locations usually found in the owners manual. no year provided so cant tell where but usual locations for fuse panels left or right side of dash, glovebox of underhood. lids to fuse panels sometimes also marked with what circuit aka.cigar lghter..that the fuse protects

hello i have a 2001 dodge ram 1500 5.9 lt it only has 70 000 miles but i cant get the 4x4 to engage it has the shifter on the floor to put from 2H 4H and 4L but it will not engage


O.K.,tried to get you to tell me more about the problem, but did not see an answer. I find it hard to engage the shifter...have to almost force it... also it takes bit before it actually engages... If I am remembering correctly the truck must be moving as shifted and usually does not engage until turning slightly... this is only from experience (not an expert) and I could count the times I've needed 4x4 to be less than a dozen times since I bought the truck 2 yrs. ago
