Where so I get 2 new fenders for the Savoy LE 26RKS?


If you are a "fair weather" cyclist, you don't need fenders, but if you are a serious cyclist, and don't live in a desert climate, you really should have at least one bicycle with fenders.

Fenders make a tremendous difference when you are riding roads that are wet from drizzle, recent rain, or snowmelt.
In a hard rain, you may become wet with clean rain from above, but fenders will protect your body and bicycle from the mud and sand kicked up from dirty puddles and rivulets.

The British use the word "mudguards". In the early days of the bicycle when horses were common, that word only began to describe the advantage of fenders!

Rainproof clothing completes the picture of the well-equipped wet-weather cyclist. A rain cape -- and if you need to keep your hair dry, a helmet cover -- allow free ventilation and maximum comfort. A jacket of Gore-Tex™ or other breathable fabric also can do the job, though it can get sweaty and hot in a warm rain. A jacket with a hood, or a conventional poncho, is not recommended, because it will interfere with vision when turning the head.

Fenders Protect Your Bicycle Many cyclists protect themselves from rain by wearing rainproof clothing, but they forget that their bicycles don't like dirty water any better than their bodies do.

The water kicked up by your wheels is much worse for your bicycle than the clean rain falling from the sky. If you ride in wet conditions without fenders, your chain, derailers and brakes will all get sprayed with sandy, muddy, scummy water, often mixed with gasoline residue. This is very bad for these parts.

Even more vulnerable is the lower section of your headset. Headsets are designed to shed water like the shingles of a roof, and are basically rainproof...but the gritty spray from below has easy entry to the bearing surfaces of the heavily-loaded lower races.

Car Quits When It Rains


These are the hardest things to trace. Go to Autozone.com and register your vehicle. Then you can get wiring diagrams, fusebox layouts and so forth. FREE Maybe you can make some sense out of the wiring.

Backtrack the problem by what you know. The engine races. I assume no codes are set and that you are not showing a "check engine" light.

As you have started buying parts, look at what is leftover. Is there a crankshaft sensor? The Throttle position sensor is iffy because giving the engine more gas would not cause it to stall; it would just think the accelerator is pressed and speed the engine.

Some engines have a dedicated Idle speed control solenoid (motor). It is usually in the intake manifold. You should see the letters ISC on the wiring diagram. Again this part is iffy, because it has no effect once you are underway.

There are often Relays for the ignition, but the engine runs but is out of control. You can try looking at the MAP sensor in the air intake or the MAF sensor at the base of the throttle body. Check the connectors for corrosion or individually disconnect,clean, and start the car after fooling with each connector. This will pinpoint the connector.

Sometimes a vacuum leak will race the engine and cause stalling. A shorted solenoid routing vacuum to pollution controls could do this.

Without the computer diagnosing a failed component and a limited time to to discover the problem each time, this will be very difficult to fix.

You might try Aboutautomobiles.com for a source of reported problems for your year, make, and model. They have NHTSA reports and Service Bulletins for cures to car problems.

I hope my solution helps you. Let me know the final cure so I can share with others.

Saab 93 convertable, Rain water fills the drivers footwell when the car is parked downhill.


I am not sure if it is the same problem I had with my '04 93 SS, but there is a cabin air filter that has a drain next to it that allows the rain water to run down to the ground. Mine was clogged up with leaves and other junk which caused the rain water to leak through the filter into the cabin. Being that yours is a different body style, your filter may be on the drivers side which would cause this. I would try to look up where your Cabin Air Filter is and try to clean the drain.

When it is raining the engine idel is rough. 5.4 L Hemi engine. Only occurs during a heavy rain or in the car wash.


If you lift your hood, check the wires that are for your windshield wiper fluid, I had the same problem and because the wires were being pressed against the molding water was able to drop down onto the engine. When ever it rains really hard felt like the truck was going to cut off. But when the sun was out my baby would pur like a kitten.

Tires


There's nothing wrong with driving on wide tires in the rain. As long as the tires have sufficient tread and are not rated for extreme performance (aka track use), and have a decent wet weather traction rating, you'll be fine. Your Lincoln will have tires that are fine for rain. 235-section tires are by no means a wide tire. Chances are you had insufficient tread depth, hit deep standing water, were traveling too fast for the amount of rain and/or water on the road, or any combination of those factors. I ran 285-section width tires on the rear of my 500hp Nissan Z car, and had no trouble with rain as long as the tread depth was sufficent. When the tire tread got low (as happened fairly often), then I really had to watch it, as the car would oversteer suddenly when I hit almost any amount of standing water. Believe me though - Lincoln makes no model (and never has in its entire history) that "is not supposed to be driven in the rain" - those kinds of warnings are exclusive to companies like Ferrari, whose cars are more or less race cars with license plates.
