I suppose u could spray them w/ silicone, just don't get any on the brake rotors or pads.

    Any auto parts store should sell silicone spray, also probably hardware stores. Probably would be best to remove wheel, so u will be spraying away from brake components onto front axle boot. While u can see the boot, check it for cracks or tears. If u find any holes or splits that go thru the boot, it should be chånged. :Road dirt and grime can get in and ruin the cv joint..

Engine making hissing sound

Mix a bit of soap and water and spray near the sound to determine from where the sound is coming, and post more information. If it's a gas car, try not to spray much water on wires like spark plugs or coils. Post information like make and model of car. Engine size, turbo or not, diesel or gas? Not much to go on here. Could be a small vacuum leak or a busted manifold, a bad intercooler, who knows with this bit of info?

There are many potential problems but first buy some spray MAF cleaner and clean the mass air flow sensor. It will set you back less than $10. Do not stick anything into the sensor. Just let the cleaner do the work.. Allow it to dry completely before installing. The link above will give you more avenues to help you diagnose the problem.

Rpm stay high when coming to a stop

Check out the MASS AIRFLOW SENSOR (MAF), it's located inside the air intake manifold right after the air filter assembly. It's a tiny sensor that you should use electrical spray cleaner on. Spray it and let it dry (10 min.), then reassemble. It should also make your car run smoother and get 5 more miles to the gallon. This sensor is never cleaned and can make an older car feel powerless. Once it's clean you'll think you have a new car. Oh, don't touch the sensor. Just spray it real good and let it dry.

Won't start after a good rain shower. Noticed drive lite flashing. Will turn over but won't start. Will start in dry weather.

You should apply dielectric grease to the insides of the spark plug wire boots liberally. Also, you can spray WD-40 inside the distributor cap to displace moisture which will allow your car to start.

The 7MGE has 2 separate valve covers/gaskets with 8 screws holding each cover that will loosen over time.
Find the phillips screws holding on the covers and retighten snugly by hand do not overtighten!
Pull plug boots/wires by the boot not the wire and use paper towels or rags on a long screwdriver etc to absorb the oil from the wells.
Carefully clean plug boots with spray brake cleaner (avoid spraying anything but the boot) and let dry.
Apply 100% silicone grease to inner boot before reinstalling to allow future removal without damage.
If your engine is particularly dirty you may need to remove the covers first and clean all mating surfaces then reinstall.

Squeaky brake when cold

If your rear brakes are making the noise take off the rear drums and spray some brake clean in there on both shoes and the drum let all parts dry which wont take anywhere from 30 seconds to a minute or two depending on the brake clean also if you want you can have someone take a piece of emry cloth to your front rotors and scuff them up a bit with about 80 to 100 grit emry and spray them and the pads off with brake clean let it dry to you can emry the pads to this will get most if not all the glaze on pads and rotors.
