Smoking issues after warm start up are usually caused by brittle valve stem seals and oil leaks down through the valve guide. These can be changed on the engine without head removal. Just use a air compressor to keep the cylinder full of air with the valves closed then remove the rocker arms counting the number of turns to keep adjustment. With a on car spring compressor remove spring. The valve keepers can be tight in retainer so tapping the retainer with released tension they will break free. Most chevy heads have 2 oil seals a hat type (positive spring seal) and a o-ring seal. With spring removed take both seals off there are very brittle. Replace the hat seal first then install spring with retainer. the o-ring seal needs to stay in retainer and in lower groove then install valve keepers and slowly release the spring pressure, Once spring compressor is removed then tap valve stem with hammer to seat keepers then release air. Also check Intake manifold bolts for proper torque. A loose manifold will also **** in oil bolt torque is 35-40 ft. lbs cast iron 30-35 ft. lbs aluminum manifold.

Sullair 185 Cat diesel portable compressor. SSAM blinks 3 flashes to denote low oil pressure, but manual gauge reads 75 psi. Shuts down after maybe 30 seconds, and blinks 3 times. Changed hobb switch w/...

problem with the computer thing ,well i would imagine it is ,try changing the oil pressure switch if no go then agent to use their software to diagnose problem sorry here but some of these things drive me to desperation ,the old things with a inline injector pump and all manual over air safety devices but once the electronics come in ?? you need a geek with a laptop under their arm not a mechanic with a big hammer .

Crankshaft pulley r/r

Place the crankshaft pulley bolt removal tool over the end of the crankshaft bolt. Tool will hold the pulley in place while you apply torque to the bolt with an impact wrench. Start the air compressor by plugging it in and turn it on. Set the pressure of the compressor on the highest setting. Attach air hose on the air compressor to the air inlet and the locking mechanism using the quick-connect lock on the end of the air compressor hose. Set the impact wrench to turn counterclockwise. Spray the crankshaft bolt with penetrating oil. Make sure you soak the bolt head in oil so that it is easier for the wrench to remove. Secure the socket end of the wrench to the pulley bolt and pull the trigger on the impact wrench. You might need to reapply penetrating oil several times during this process to loosen the bolt up. Eventually, the bolt will come off 215 lbs torque, and simply stated righty tighty, lefty loosy. Hope this will assist you.

P01544 OBD 2 code

P01544 -Throttle Actuation Potentiometer Signal too High*************When selecting a valve actuator the correct type and size can be found utilizing the following selection criteria:
  1. Power source -The common sources of power for automated valves are electricity or fluid power. If electric power is selected, a three-phase supply is usually required for large valves; however, small valves can be operated on a single-phase supply. Usually an electric valve actuator can accommodate any of the common voltages. Sometimes a DC supply is available. This is often an emergency back-up power supply.
    Variations of fluid power are much greater. First there is a variety of fluid media such as compressed air, nitrogen, hydraulic fluid or natural gas. Then, there are the variations in the available pressures of those media. With a variety of cylinder sizes, most of the variations can be accommodated for a particular valve size.
  2. The type of valve -Whenever sizing an actuator for a valve, the type of valve has to be known, so that the correct type of actuator can be selected. There are some valves that need multi-turn input, where as others need quarter-turn. This has a great impact on the type of actuator that is required. When combined with the available power supply, then the size and type of actuator quickly comes into focus.
    Generally multi-turn fluid power actuators are more expensive than multi-turn electric actuators. However, for rising non-rotating stem valves a linear fluid power actuator may be less expensive. A definitive selection cannot be made until the power requirements of the valve are determined. After that decision has been made, then the torque requirement of the valve is the next selection criterion.
  3. Calculating the torque required by the valve -For a quarter-turn valve, the best way of determining the torque required is by obtaining the valve maker's torque data. Most valve makers have measured the torque required to operate their valves over the range of operating line pressures. They make this information available for customers.
    The situation is different for multi-turn valves. These can be subdivided into several groups: the rising rotating, rising non-rotating, and non-rising rotating valves. In each of these cases the measurement of the stem diameter together with the lead and pitch of the valve stem thread is required in order to size the automation for the valve. This information coupled with the size of the valve and the differential pressure across the valve can be used to calculate torque demand.
    The type and size of the actuator can be determined after the power supply, the type of valve, and the torque demand of that valve have been defined.
  4. Sizing the actuator -Once the actuator type has been selected and the torque requirement of the valve has been determined, then the actuator can be sized using one of the actuator manufacturer's sizing programs or tables. A further consideration in sizing the actuator is the required speed of operation of the valve. As speed has a direct relationship to the power required from the actuator, more horsepower would be needed to operate a valve at a faster speed.
    Fluid power actuators can adjust speed of operation using fluid control valves. However, electric motor operators of the three-phase type have a fixed speed of operation. Smaller, quarter-turn actuators utilize DC motors, and may have adjustable speed of operation.
The great advantage of having an automated valve is that it can be remotely controlled. This means that operators can sit in a control room and control a process without having to physically go to the valve and give it an open or close command, the most basic type of control for an automated valve. The ability to remotely control a valve is easily achieved by running a pair of wires out to the actuator from the control room. Applying power across the wires can energize a coil, initiating motion in an electric or fluid power actuator. Positioning a valve in an intermediate position can be done using this type of control. However, feedback would be needed to verify the actuator is at the desired position. A more common method of positioning an actuator is to feed a proportional signal to the actuator such as 4-20 mA, so that the actuator, using a comparator device, can position itself in direct portion to the received signal.
Modulating control
If an actuator is required to control a level, flow or pressure in a system, then it may be required to move frequently. Modulating or positioning control can be achieved using the same 4-20 milliamps signal. However, the signal would change as frequently as the process required. If very high rates of modulation are required then special modulating control valve actuators are needed that can accommodate the frequent starts required for such duty.

What type fluid goes in transfer case of 96 grand cherokee

Changing trans fluid & filter wanting to know how much fluid to buy

2.5L engine - 8.4 qts, 3.0L & 3.8L engines – 12.8 qts.

The capacity specifications are if the transmission is totally empty, and here's the clincher for us average types: including the torque converter and radiator tank.

For us average types, even when doing a transmission fluid / filter change, it does not end up with an empty torque converter.

When you pull the transmission pan for the fluid/filter change, you end up with 4-6 quarts on average. The rest is still up inside the torque converter.

Measure what you drained and start with refilling that amount to put back in to return levels back to normal.

Simply use the dipstick to check level and add as is necessary.

NOTE: This is one of the points of distinction to having the transmission "flushed" - where a professional shop is going to hookup specialized equipment to achieve a full fluid exchange, or you do the flush yourself

Leaking fluid in transmission

I assume u have an automatic trans., there are 2 types for that year, model 41TE, which to drain and fill for a trans fluid change is 4 qts, not including what's in the torque converter, and model 31th (14 bolt fluid pan) which holds 8.9 qts including the torque converter. Interesting how my source gave one w/ torque con. one w/out.
