Question about Cars & Trucks
Is it possible to replace a driven well point using the same hole the old one came out of? I have a driven point well (aka "sand point") that is not letting water through. Whether there's some obstruction at the bottom at the foot valve, or rust and corrosion have built up around the screen, or whatever else might be the problem down there, the well/point guy says the cost of putting in a new point is just $500 less than the approx $4500 cost of drilling a conventional well. Which is something I'm going to have to save up for. But I know that a landowner can drive their own point (by Wisconsin laws/regulations). So does anybody know if I can just get the existing pipe and point pulled out, and then drive a new point down the same hole the old one came out of? Running water is real handy, and if I can save costs by buying a point, pounding cap, and pipes myself and then drive it myself, then I can get running water sooner.
To get the old pipe out might cost 500 or more . have to be done with some type of crane or wrecker with BIG WENCH(hoist). a convention well drilled depends on the depth they have to go down as to the cost . sand point wells are usually really shallow .

sounds like you left something out. check to see if you plugged in all the sensors and plugs, then check for any vacuum lines that were not replaced or may have been broken

I think you could be right about there being air trapped in the system.
Or the heater core(radiator) is plugged.
Either way you need a pressurized radiator coolant pump to put the coolant in without air being trapped.
Although,i have seen it done by jacking the vehicle up high enough that the radiator was now higher than the heater core level, and then the coolant was put in.
But this is dangerous to try.

You won't get any damage to the vehicle.....you'll just have that noise all the time......and the wiping problem...elaborate on it.....noise coming from the wiper motor???

SOURCE: Power running board failure
This is not really solving the problem, but my dealer told me that they could unplug the harness to keep the running boards in the down postion. The running boards have to be in the down position to make this happen.

if its the pipe on the engine then its the thermostate housing, if its in the front it would be th top of your radiator
