1994 dodge 3.9l v6 what direction (up or down) do I put the oil hole on my lifters?


Hi Franklin:
All of the engines I've played with that had hydraulic lifters also had hollow push rods. The lifters act like little pumps and oil comes up through the push rods to lubricate the end of the rocker arms.
My answer:
flat end down onto the cam
hole end up for the push rod to sit in.

How do you replace the lifters in a 1995 chevy 5.7l


Like any other vehicle, you must remove the heads to access the lifters. The lifters ride on the cam, and can be lifted out of their chambers when the rockers and push rods are removed.

Having a "clicking" sound coming from engine, or dull "thumping"


could be anything from belt noise to lifter tick to rod knock..lifter tick is under the valve covers..rod knock sounds like hitting the block with a hammer..if its rod knock see what your oil pressure is.. should be around 30 to 45 psi cold..warm will be as low as 15..depending on oil type..most lifters can be adjusted by removing the cover and doing adjusting depending on the vehicle..good luck

Replace the tie rod on a 1998 sienna


1 PUT ON YOUR EMERGENCY BREAK, LOOSEN THE WHEEL NUTS ON THE FRONT WHEELS,JACK UP THE CAR AND REMOVE THE FRONT WHEEL. WITH SOME YELLOW PAINT ,MARK THE THREADS WHERE IT SCREWS INTO THE TIE ROD END SO YOU KNOW HOW FAR TO SCREW THE NEW ON ONTO. TAKE OUT THE COTTER PIN AND REMOVE THE CASTLE NUT FROM THE ROD. USE A PRY BAR TO SEPERATE THE BOLT FROM THE TIE ROD END. ONCE SEPARATED YOU SHOULD BE ABLE UNSCREW THE OLD TIE ROD END OFF THE SHAFT..TAKE THE NEW ONE AND SCREW IT BACK ON ONLY TO THE YELLOW PAINT MARK THAT YOU MADE ON THE ROD EARLIER. THEN JUST REASSEMBLE THE SAME WAY YOU TOOK IT APART. MAKE SURE YOU TORQUE THE NUT TO 50 LBS.AND BE SURE TO USE A NEW COTTER PIN ON THE CASTLE NUT..

Inner tie rod removal


The first step in replacing the inner tie rod is to remove the tie rod end. It's basically a three step process, where you start by loosening the jam nut that's used to set the alignment (toe-in or toe-out). That jam nut determines how far up the inner tie rod the tie rod end is fixed. The tie rod end is hollow and threaded, so it can be screwed on or off the inner tie rod. Any procedure for removing a tie rod will start by telling you to count the turns you unscrew the tie rod end, something that I didn't do, and I'll save the explanation for the end:-) After you loosen the jam nut, you remove the cotter pin from the post on the outer tie rod ball joint, and unscrew the nut that holds the ball joint into the tapered fitting on the steering knuckle (video to right). After you pop the outer tie end free of the steering knuckle, you can unscrew the tie rod end. from the inner tie rod, but you need to grip it with something. Inner tie rods normally have some flat surfaces or a splined surface for grabbing with pliers. In this case, I needed two pairs of visegrips and a clamp to hold the visegrips on the inner tie rod from moving in order to get the outer tie rod end broken free and turning easy. That video is below. I happen to own the shop manuals for my Dodge Omni, so I was able to study the procedure for replacing the inner tie rod in detail. I didn't follow it for a couple reason. First, they show my type of power steering rack (Saginaw vs TRW) needs to be removed from the car to change the inner tie rod. That's a lot of extra work, not to mention the fact I buried one of the crossmember bolts in my unibody and flooring repair! So I went with an inner tie rod removal kit from Harbor Freight, manufactured by U.S. General (in Taiwan). The tool is very simple, basically a large steel tub with a snap in opening for a large crows foot insert on one end and a 1/2" socket drive on the other end. The kit is shown in the photo to the lower left (which I need to replace), and a video of the procedure is shown below. The kit wasn't quite right for my car, I had to use an oversized crows foot and the ball joint housing on the inner tie rod was too long, so the flats on the housing were barely held with the crows foot positioned by hand at the very end of the tool. But I got it out.

Where are the lifting point for floor stand. thank you


Hi,

The lifting point for your car would be in the inner side of the running board.

There are metal hard points where you put the jack lifter, by using your finger , you will notice the bulge on the 4 ends of the running board. Usually near the wheel.

hope that helps your lifting!

thanks for using Fixa!

How to fix door handle on chevrolet cobalt 2008


Have to remove inner door panel and is usually 2 bolts around 10mm that hold handle in, but the rods must be removed first and these rods are only held in place by a spring steel clip that just flips out off the rod at the handle end.
To remove door panel - look for visible screws under and around the edges and or handles, remove all these. If window is winding type a horse-shoe clip holds the handle on and can be pushed off with a screw-driver if you push the panel away from handle and look behind the handle.
Then take a putty knife and or butter knives and insert between door and panel to pop plastic clips from door then lift on panel to remove from window jam.  Be careful of wires and plugs after this.  Remove plug clips and place panel aside.  Remove plastic and sound-proofing if any in the corner near the handle and a 10mm 1/4" drive ratchet to remove bolts on each side of handle.
This is a general answer but should work for the Cobalt as well.

Window falls down both rear windows . i could fix it if i new how it worked or if i had a diagram to see how it goes together


The lifting gear has probably broken - its plastic !
take off door covers (screws in door pull, clips around edges,unclip plug to door switch and speaker) you will then have to remove inner lining (be carefull and you can refit it) you will then see the lifting gear. push the pin out of the lifter bracket to glass bracket to seperate.
buy new lifter if unrepairable - keep old window motor to fix to new lifter - as these are sold extra (I know it sucks - new lifter + old motor)
good luck
