That is a transmission issue, more than likely you need to rebuild it.

Hey, I knew a Chris Arnold In High School! The Easiest way to fix this is to Put the Pad back on that goes on the Piston and use it as a Buffer. Compress Further with Tool or Channel Locks while Slowly Releasing the Bleeder Valve. Once Compressed Close the Bleeder Valve Quickly as you do not want Air in the System.

SOURCE: wind shield wiper arm does not hold blade tight

buy a new wiper arm at a dealer, buy a used wiper arm at a junkyard or on eBay. there is a spring in there which has a problem and it is easier to just replace the arm than fart around with that spring. note the arm will be the same on any big FMC model 98-02, but make sure your replacement is for the same side as the driver and passenger arms are generally not quite the same.

take the nut off the old arm, jiggle it up and off do not pry against the glass. before you take the old arm off put a piece of tape on the windshield along the top edge of the wiper blade to make sure you put the new one on in the same place.

5-spdt M/T. Why has it stopped shifting into reverse?

Firstly check if you have gearbox oil in it seldomly so happens that a gearbox makes a noise but when it does make a kind of winding noise the gear inside the box has gotten damaged. Sometimes when lucky if you add gearbox oil the noise goes away.

Cutting down on wind noise while driving

There's a quick and easy way to cut down some of the wind noise in your car while driving on the highway. Open the doors and look at the rubber seal at the top edge. See how it's a groove? This is to allow rainwater to channel down and off of the car.

However, that groove keeps the door from sealing as tightly as it could, and as a result, you may have wind noise at higher speeds. To fix that, try this:

Go to a hardware store and get some clear PVC hose (aka "fish tank tubing"). For an A4, get a single length about 14 feet long. On an A6, you'll probably need 18 feet to be safe, and a few extra still for an A8. You'll need the hose, a pair of cutters, and five minutes' time.

Starting at the front edge of the groove on the driver's door, press the tubing into the groove, trying not to twist it. Press it in evenly and smoothly, and when you get to the back edge of the groove, cut it off cleanly. Repeat for the other doors.

By using the tubing, you allow the door to seal more tightly, but you still have a channel in the tubing to allow rainwater to drain away, so you have the best of both worlds - a better door seal for quieter driving (and possibly better sealing to keep heat or AC in), and a way to still channel away rainwater:)

Are there consumer complaints about the wind noise caused by the overhead luggage cross bars?

You won't know whether you'll have a problem with wind noise until you try it. I've driven 4 rack-equipped vehicles over the years. The only rack that made noise was the dealer-installed rack on an old vehicle, and that was ONLY during cold, misty weather (drizzle or very thick fog). What this shows is that wind noise can be a very finicky thing, as far as what causes it. That also means that if it occurs, you can probably come up with a trick to change the air flow which will stop it from happening (I've heard of tricks as simple as a spiral wrap of rope around the cross bar stopping wind noise, but I bet every situation is different). None of the other racks, including the boat rack for Subaru`s, which used 2x4s for the cross bars, made any noise that I could hear. In fact, the auxiliary rack for my current car (only used when needing extra width for two boats) also uses 2x4 cross bars, and it makes no noise.

I wouldn't use factory cross bars. There might be some good ones out there, but I haven't seen them. The general rule is to go with aftermarket bars, as well as the necessary bar-mounting hardware.

Some people love fold-down J-hooks, but since it only takes 30 seconds to remove them and about one minute to install them, why not just take them off, leaving bare cross bars? I take them off when not needed. I even take them off when parked by the river during a trip. After all, if I can remove both of them in 30 seconds using just my hands, so can a thief. Anyway, a folded-down J-hook is still a very bulky item to have up there compared to a bare cross bar.

Same goes for saddles. It takes only a moment to install or remove them, so if you want to keep air resistance to a minimum or not worry about the potential for wind noise, just drive with a bare rack when not carrying boats.

What would cause a winding noise in the engine from starting engine, during driving, and does not stop winding until it's turned off?

That could be any number of things but I would suspect that the bearings are going in one of the pulleys driven by the fan belt.

My jigsaw starts at correct speed and then slows or stops, even under no load. It has seen very little use.

the winding is burnt out or rubbing the magnet slightly, return it if you can . factory default id say.

Winding down noise when stopping and big jolt when I do!

Dear Sweetallday5,
Without seeing the car, and being able to hear and look at it underneath, anything we can do is guess.
Now, here is a really good guess.
Do not drive the can one more mile, not even to a repair shop.
Have it towed.
Otherwise, you stand the risk of having it quit on you in the middle of the street, or even wreck whilst you are driving it.
As far as being worth it to fix, only an honest mechanic can tell you that.
God bless your efforts.

Winding noise

Is this noise coming from the rear of the vehicle, if so it "sounds" like a rear pinion bearing concern, this would make a winding noise when under a load(accelerating) and disappear at other times. Keep me posted
