Question about Cars & Trucks
I have a huge maple tree in my front yard. It sheds a great deal of leaves every year, leaving a thick layer of wet leaves on my metal roof. The roof is too steep to attack the problem at its source. I tried a hose with an 8 foot extension attachment and a blower while standing on a ladder. However I was only able to get about 60% of the leaves to leave :) There are still several piles remaining near the ridge that I cannot get to budge.As I was pondering my alternatives I found none ... then I thought, what if I had a HUGE rake that would reach the ridge ...hmmm.. So, I've taken two 8' metal tent poles (the type that dont bend) and connected them end to end. I attached a 10' piece of aluminum flashing in the center (using duct tape, zip ties and liquid nails) to create more support at the center of my pole. I then took the end of a push broom and attached it to one end of the pole using more liquid nails and a large 8" bolt, which I glued into the broom and the end of one of the tent poles. I now have a roughly 16' pole with a push broom on one end (a gigantic broom, not rake). The glue is still drying. I will know tomorrow if it works or not. I thought, however, I should inquire whether or not anyone has a better idea before I hurt myself wielding a 15' pole while trying to balance on a ladder (did I mention Im only 5' tall?)..
Buy a snow roof rake.They have poly propolene radial scoops on them they wont dammage roof. You can use it for snow as well. You wont need the latter. Mutch lighter as well.

Replace the fuel pump. Test it by pouring a can of cold water over the pump when the engine has been running and try starting once you have done that if it starts no trouble the pump is the problem.

Matt, sounds like a suspension or exhaust noise. Grab onto exhaust (engine cold) at several locations (car supported securely so u don't get crushed) and wiggle, tug pull, kick, etc to see if u can get it to make any noise from hitting anything. Look for evidence of the exhaust rubbing against something, by looking for shiny metal due to contact w/ something. Also push up and down on the body of the car as violently as possible to simulate going over bumps. Pay close attention to heat shields around or on the exhaust system, if they are loose, they will make a racket.
And, as I said, possibly the suspension is making the noise, but not as likely, pushing up and down on the car body as described above might reproduce the noise. If it isn't the exhaust (my 1st choice), give me more clues if u can. good luck countrycurt0

outside temp sensor is located on the same bar that supports the hood latch. it sounds like something is liking the warmth of the engine compartment and starting to nest. open the hood and locate the sensor, folllow the wire to see where it is broken, do not be surprised to see that it may be chewed through.as vermin seem to make a meal of the wires insulation. they especially like to crawl under the intake and feast on the knock sensor wires. where I work in south Jersey I do a lot of wiring repairs due to rodent / vermin damage
