Hi. Treegator that was installed last fall has a pin-size hole in it near the bottom. Is this covered under the warranty?

Treegator was removed over the winter and when I reinstalled it last weekend I discovered a pin-size hole leaking water pretty fast. I didn't think much of it last fall when I filled it, just assumed the ground was dry and that's how the Treegator worked. I have several to inspect before I reinstall, so hoping I don't find anymore. Terrain is grassy around the area. Thanks.

Yeah, its your flex pipe, i would recommend just spending the extra money. also, for the guy above me, a u joint is on your drive train, not the exhaust, so dont listen to that, a u joint wont do ****, u need the flex pipe, or if u wanna risk it, just put a straight pipe in there, but the problem with that is the flex prevents ur exhaust from cracking and then falling, in the long run, ull definitely want a flex pipe, so put the extra money into it now, and ull save money in the future

Hey there Dave,

Had the same thing happen to my Wrangler about three years ago.
It was the weep hole too.

I drained the coolant, dried the weep hole and plugged it with a small amount of that solid epoxy they market to fix holes in gas tanks. I refilled the radiator and the plug held.

It's still holding.
Just an alternative option

It may be the gromet for the PCV valve or it could be the spark plug rubber seal located in the valve cover if it is the type of engine that has the wires and spark plugs that go down through the valve cover, if this is the case buy a valve cover gasket with the rubber gromets that are located around the base of the hole where spark plugs fit through and install.

How do I replace the long screw that holds the door up on the door hinges,on a '97 gmc Sonoma?

I have done a 100 of these.

The hardest part is going to be to reinstall the spring on the lower hinge arm. this is not a screw but rather a pin.
There are two hinges that hold the door to body.
when the upper and lower pins are removed the door will come away from body, it is important that before you remove the pins you take a look at the hinges.
Pay close att. to the way the hinges sit inside each other and the way the pins go in. see if they go from top to bottom or from bottom to top. also note where the copper bushings sit in hinges. each hinge has one pin and two copper bushings top go into hinge.
Over time the pins and bushings wear out ,making door hard to open and close. When the pins and bushings get so bad that the bushing is worn out and then the pins are now wearing into the hinge hole itself then this get tricky. if hinge hole is egg shaped the new bushings will not last. the door will hang again in a few weeks. this is where is get costly, the hinges now need replacing. i have gotten good at welding the holes and filing them back to shape but this takes skill or hole will be wrong and bushing will not fit or line up.

Here is a youtube video to help you.
Take note. put jack stands under door with cloth to avoid scratching door.this is to hold door when pins are removed. have somone help you, they will hold door on stands. the wires will still run through door, pull door away from body a little to allow room to work.remove the spring, it will fall out as you remove pins, remove old bushings, clean hinge area and holes,next install new bushings, apply lube to holes for pins and on bushings, slide door back on frame hinges and install pins, next slide lock washers on pins to hold pins. last is the spring. you will need a spring tool, you may rent one at auto parts store. hope this helps good day.

I have a 2005 hyundai elantra. I just replaced the weather stripping on the driver side window last week, and have had no problems till today. I left the windows down, and when i closed the door the...

The window scraper seal has been dislodged from its position, those white pins that you see are the locking pins that holds it down into position. If that is the one you replaced better bring it back to the shop that installed it. Plastic clips/pins might already broken.
Installing it without any experience in opening the inside mechanism of the door/window will vodi the warranty of the works that have done to it.
Placing it back, you have to remove the door cover, window regulator, wiring harness, and window glass. Just to get that small thing back into position.
Hope that helps you out.
Thanks fro asking FixYa!

What is the procedure to changing an keyed ignition lock?

Hi there,


Disconnect the negative battery cable with the proper size wrench and place away from the battery.
Insert the key into the ignition lock cylinder and turn the key to the run position.
Remove the steering column cover on a tilt steering wheel model by pressing the upper and lower section of the cover together and pulling free from the mounting plate. Remove the steering column covers on a non tilt steering wheel model by using a Philips screwdriver and unscrewing the mounting screws.
Disconnect the electrical connector from the ignition switch by lifting up on the release tab and pulling.
Press the ignition switch actuator pin by pushing a small screw driver into the key lock cylinder, while doing this pull the ignition switch out of the ignition switch housing.


Insert the new key into the new ignition switch and turn the key to the run position. Insert the new ignition switch into the ignition switch housing. Wiggle the switch back and forth until the actuator pin mounting hole is aligned and falls into place.
Install the electrical connector back into the connector housing by pressing it in with your hands.
Place the steering column covers back onto the non tilt steering wheel and insert mounting screws. Tighten screws using a Philips screwdriver. Place the steering column covers over the tilt steering wheel and press the upper and lower portion together to snap covers back into the mounting plate.
Pull on the ignition key to ensure switch is locked into place. Turn key to the "off" position and remove the key. Insert the key and start the vehicle.

Hope these help.

How do i replace the bushing on the slider door

1. Remove sliding door trim panel , watershield, and access hole cover plates.

4. Disconnect pizza rear door latch actuator rod from pizza remote control assembly by opening pizza clip.

5. Open pizza door sufficiently to gain access to pizza three bolts attaching pizza rear latch to pizza sliding door. Remove bolts.

6. Remove pizza sliding door rear latch with pizza remote control actuator rod attached to pizza latch, from pizza sliding door.-------------
First you need to get the right tools for the job and the right parts to fix the problem.There is a hinge pin in both the upper and lower hinges and four brass bushings and there is two different size bushings in each hinge and also two hinge pin retaining for the tools you need a spring compressor,jack,hammer,punch. First open the door all the way,put jack under door,I like to use a 2by4 board on top of the jack to help spread the wieght of the door out a little,next if the door has a wireing harness in the jamp loosen the rubber insulation form both the door and the body this gives a couble of inches of slack in the wireing.Next use the spring compressor to remove the spring,then use the punch and hammer to drive out the is very hard to get them to move an first but gets easyer as they start to move.I would recomend having a helper to hold the door upright as it will fall when the pin is removed from the hinge.Onece the pins are out move the door and jack away from the body to gain more axcess room the replace the bushings,two in the door side and two in the body side,then slide door and jack back and align hinge holes and install new pins. I allways grease the bushing and pins before installing.Drive the new pins all the way flush with the hinge and install the retainers.Reinstall the spring and reattach the wireing insulation. ------- Open the door so it is directly above the bench. Observe how all the fasteners, be they bolts or pins with bushings, are aligned. Generally, the bolts and pins point toward the center of the hinge from the top or bottom, The bolts and bushings are on the body-side bracket for the upper bracket and the door bracket for the lower one. This will help. Thanks please keep updated. please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya

Where are the clips located in a 2001 astro rear axle?

You mean the clips that holds the axle shafts in the axle housing? You need to take the cover off the rear axle, now theres a small bolt in the carrier housing that holds the large pin in, remove the small bolt and push the pin out, then push the axle shaft inwards and the clip ( it really looks like a small horseshoe) will fall out, if it doesnt fall out, you will need to remove it, then the axle shaft will pull out. To install its the same way, put the shaft all the way in, install the clip, and pull out to seat it. then install the large pin, but make sure you line up the hole for the bolt.

Key stuck in ignition - 2007 HHR Automatic

I have posted this several times I have a 2006 HHR and I agree with you but here is a cheap solution. There is a pin that goes thru the shift cable that is falling out. Above the window buttons pry the little plastic holder out remove the 2 screws take the plastic off of the sides of the console you will see a black plastic frame with holes in it I cut a larger hole between 2 of the small holes with a hack saw on the driver side. Put the car in neutral drivers seat all the way back pull on the shift button and you will see the pin pull it out with a pair of needle nose pliers. I put 598 black loctite sealant on mine and reinstall. Shift back to park if you can get the key out and the doors unlock you have the pin in the right spot and it is making both switches when in park. You can see if it is on the switches by looking thru the hole where the little holder came out. The pin sticks out about a 1/2" on each side. Good luck
