Question about 2005 Chevrolet Cobalt

Scrape on my car

I scraped agaisnt a rock with my car and it left a nice size scrape on the passanger side of my door. I went to Autozone but they didn't have the exact color I needed for my car and I was wondering what I can do for now to prevent from rusting until I can find the exact color of my car. The body shop suggested putting clear nail polish over the scrape for now but I don't know how long that will last. The scrape is on the bottom of my passanger side door and extends out just a little bit farther than that. I'm not too worried about fixing my door right now, its just a few dents, I'm more concerned about what to do with the scrape.

Why is there a scraping noise in the rear end when turning left or right?

you do not say what the vehicle is John. I would say that the vehicle has got to go up for a look see.

The sound of scraping when turning either way indicates a fault with a shared component or the same fault with the same compnent on both sides.
might be that the wheel bearings are worn and you have distorted disks that scrape against the brake pads because there is play in the wheels.
Micht be a suspension issue of some kind but without the id of your vehicle it is hard to say.
A visit to a suspension/brake specialist is probably adviseable

hope it is not the diff

P1404 error

The code is saying the egr pintel valve is stuck open. There are probably carbon deposits around the bottom keeping it from closing properly. Take it off and try cleaning-scrape the deposits off. And check the exhaust passages the valve controls-scrape those clean as best you can. You will see them when you take the egr valve off.

My 1983 Datsun 280zx is flooding out. I'm getting fire but it does not want to run over a couple seconds. Ideas?

Unplug the air flow meter and carefully look at each connector.
Theese are bad about corroding between the coonctors and the air flow meters. Make up a very tiny little sharp objrct that you can munipulate with your hand it must have the capabitly of scrapeing small pins in confined areas to clean them. It is time consuming but worth the effort. very carefully, scrape each connector on both sides (if it is the female connector you will have to be patient because you can bend the the little arms that the pins slide into) Scrape them thoroughly EACH AND EVERY ONE OF THEM!
Then scrape the surface areas (or pins which plug into the plug you just cleaned) Ideally get some diaelectric grease, you can buy a small tube at youyour local parts house. It's a white grease. (This will keep the connector from corroding again) Pack it into the plug you just cleaned and then plug it back into the air flow meter.
MAKE SURE YOU AREN'T STARTING OUT WITH FOULED PLUGS! I'm willing to bet, based on your description, if it's accurate and the air flow meter is good and has not been tampered with, you car should improve significantly. let me know.

Efel oil stove wont burn blue only yellow

Pull the crown and the two crown supports, scrape and vacuum the residual ash on the bottom and around the starter coil. Pull the and turn the oil feed tube scraper back out of the way. Reach inside the tube with a screwdriver and scrape out the residue until as clean as posssible. Exercise the fuel tube rod several times until there is no scraping sound. Vacuum the interior and replace the parts (Do not clean the crown).
