There is a web like thing in my tank. Is it coming from the moss ball, which also houses lots of wee snails.

Clear the whole lot out, the snails love going to the Moss Ball near Christmas :>)

All have to go, it should all be clean.

    OP posted to the category cars and trucks when the problem is a Fish Tank, not a vehicle gas tank or an in-ground Water Tank. Anyway...

    Fish tank? Get rid of the snails and the moss and the web. Or at least the web and find the spider that made it, although the fish may have eaten it.

    With your other post (this one, you deleted where I was going to post this), I thought it was a well tank.

Enigine shakes a lot on strait always when I go up hill it doesn't what could the problem be

First thing, any time you get bogging down, change the fuel filter. That's the cheapest fix you can do. Beyond that, add gas to the tank and see if it changes the prob. Fill it up. If there's junk in the fuel tank, it might be clogging the line as the gas lowers on a flat stretch. There used to be a bad practical joke done with a ping pong ball in a car gas tank back in the day and it caused probs exactly like you said. I'm a classic car type. I know nothing about the modern computer junk so good luck!

Use moth balls to drive it out. They do not like the smell and I have heard of good success with that. I will probably be doing the same around my house since my wife caught one inside. Hope this helps!

Why genset not starting.

you say diesel so I assume that it is a diesel engine
The symptoms indicate low pressure in the fuel pump and that can be from air in the system or blocked filters
you mentioned deep sea controller so is it right to say that it is on a boat
If so then check the fuel tanks for a black moss like substance
this causes filter blockages and eventually gets to the pump and injectors and creates hard start problems
if so empty the tank and clean out as best you can
regularly use diesel fuel conditioner to stop the moss regrowth
It comes from condensation in the diesel tank and is a common problem in tanks that are left standing partly empty or with low fuel in them

Check the fuel filler cap is correct and venting as it should . Check for blockage in the fuel line pick -up in the tank as it is a fine metal filter that rusts and blocks the fuel flow to the pump.. I take it that by you statement of diesel fuel solenoid that it is a diesel engine. To that point the fuel tank runs at an elevated temperature and when cooling gets water condensation in the tank. This promotes moss growth which gets through filters and generally reduces performance of pumps and injectors.. However it will block the pick -up filter as I said. If you find this to be the case the moss is treatable with compounds put in the tank. To prevent a re-occurrence simply keep the tank full and never less than 1/2 full. NO air space = no condensation.= no moss.

Rattle noise coming from front driver side wheel when going over bumps

It could be several things.

1. Strut is worn and the rod is rattling.
2. The ball joint or control arm are worn. A new control arm comes with the ball joint and a new bushing.
3. The inner and/or tie rod end is worn, allowing the wheel to rattle.

Raise the car and support it. Twist the wheel back and forth while observing the tie rod. Look for play in the inner and outer connections. If this is ok, place a pry bar under the tire and lift up while observing the ball joint and control arm. You should not see any play. Look at the strut. Look for oil on the housing. Look for play in the rod or a loose connection.

2000 Grand Cherokee Upper Ball Joint

Illustration of control arm:

The wishbone part, number 12, is the control arm. In the two ends, left side of picture, are the two bushings. These are pressed in bushings.

The rubber bushings, with their bonded steel shells, are separate parts, the part number for the (2) bushings are: 52088425

These bushings normally won't be damaged, but, in my case, due to extensive towing of a heavy trailer, these bushings had tears in the rubber bonding between the shell and the central spindle. These tears caused by the trailer snatching the frame around (trailer hitch is frame mounted) while the differential is essentially connected to the earth, through the tire rubber, and to the frame, through the ball joint and arm rubber bushings.

You can easily view the condition of the rubber simply by rolling under the vehicle with a flashlight, and looking. The bolts are vertical, right up through the bushing spindle, into the frame.

The bolts through the bushing spindle mount the arm to the frame.

The ball joint, at the apex of the arm, is number 8, and is Jeep part number 52088808AB.

This ball joint is an assembly which also includes the mounting flange plate. This plate bolts atop the differential housing with three bolts. The ball joint pin protrudes through the hole in the apex of the arms, and is secured by a nut, item 11, Jeep part number 06502698

Again, don't replace the bushings unless you see visible tears in the rubber web, or rotted, aged, cracked out webbing.

One more thing to note if you take down the arm... the emergency brake cables and brake lines are secured to the arm with small metal clips and bolts. Minor point here is when you reattach these bolts, don't crank down on them more than about 12 ft lbs torque, as these bolts go into the sheet metal wall of the arm, and there's no need to try to strip out these threads... Just secure them a bit, not to tank down on them.
