Thermostat replace


YOOLS U NEED= Basic hand tools will probably do the trick. You may need a rachet and set of sockets.

1

Cut the furnace's power source before beginning. Check for a power switch near your furnace or turn off the electrical power supply at the circuit breaker.

2Turn off the gas supply if you have a gas furnace. Look around the furnace for a black pipe. This pipe is the gas line. Check for a valve located near the pipe. Turn off the gas supply by moving the valve so it's perpendicular to the gas line.

3

Take off the thermostat's old cover by unscrewing the screws that attach the cover to the wall. Some covers don't have screws and simply pull off.

4

Unscrew the mounting plate and notice the wires.
5

Place a small piece of masking tape on each wire. Use a felt-tip marker to mark the masking tape according to the wire's screw terminal location. Usually, the wires are marked with letters.

6

Disconnect the low-voltage wires from the base plate by loosening the screws and then pulling the wires away.
7

Locate the mounting screws for the base plate. Unscrew them and take off the base plate. Guide the base plate over the wires carefully.

Our 2005 Chrysler Town and Country van dies at stop lights and stop signs. We can drive it for about 25 miles into town, and then around town with no stalling, but once we turn it off one time and restart...


My suspicion is that your egr valve is sticking slightly ajar which will cause the engine to falter at idle speed. The valve is located near the throttle body air intake at the end of the engine, mounted in a small diameter pipe that recirculates exhaust gas from the rear cylider bank exhaust manifold back around to just below the intake manifold where the air from the filter enters the throttle body. The exhaust gases have some fumes that can plate out a crud on the valve stem and thus keep it from closing tight when you are start or at idle. That makes for a too lean mixture so the engine stalls. The valve proper is mounted horizontally with the stem visible in a space between the body of the valve mounted on the pipe and the round top of the valve which is flanged and so if you look carefully you will see a metal rod (stem of the valve) with a slot around its circumference. You can take the tip of flat blade screwdriver and insert it in the slot and then lever the valve back and forth to check if it is moving freely (against spring action in one direction) or not. If it doesn't seem to close easily with the help of the built-in spring, then I would spray the base of the stem with solvent from a pressure can (such as WD-40 or carb cleaner) while moving the stem back and forth.

My 71 vw bug has started making knocking noise after several months of th gear shifter ratteling. It knocks mre when low idle or turning off the engine. I feel it shaking right under the area that the...


Sure.
If I remember right, there is a long pipe that attaches to the transaxle shifter, and goes up to underneath the stick.
There is a nylon bushing that holds it in place on the stick end. It wears thin and falls out, allowing this long pipe to bang around.
Mark the edge of the shifter plate first, then unbolt the 2 13mm bolts, to remove the shifter and the lock out plate underneath it.
Remember the orientation of the lockout plate, or keep it with the shift plate, so that you don't try to reinstall it upside down later.
Then pull out the stick.
Notice the prong and how it fits into the groove of the cup on the end of the long pipe, for reinstallation.

Then grab the long pipe and move it around.
See how it hits the edge of a hole in a metal support, instead of being held tightly by a plastic bushing.
If I remember right, the new bushing has a split on one side so that you can open it and put it around the pipe, and then you slide it back until it snaps into the hole.
Grease it well.
Put the shift plate back where is was, or else you might have trouble shifting into all the gears.

Replace fuel pump


Removal & Installation
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable and relieve the fuel system pressure.
  2. Siphon or pump as much fuel as possible out through the fuel filler pipe.
Fuel injected vehicles have reservoirs inside the fuel tank to maintain fuel near the fuel pick-up during cornering or low-fuel operation. These reservoirs could block siphon hoses or tubes from reaching the bottom of the fuel tank. Repeated attempts, using different hose orientations, can overcome this obstacle.
  1. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  2. If equipped, remove the skid plate attaching bolts, then lower the plate and remove it.
On Explorer/Mountaineer models, the front fuel tank strap is bolted to the skid plate and will be disconnected when the plate is removed.
  1. Disconnect the fuel fill and vent hoses connecting the filler pipe to the tank.
  2. On vehicles equipped with a metal retainer fastening the filler pipe to the fuel tank, remove the screw holding the retainer to the fuel tank flange.
  3. Disengage the fuel lines and the electrical connections to the fuel tank sending unit/fuel pump assembly. On some vehicles, these are inaccessible on top of the tank. In this case, they must be disconnected when the tank is partially lowered.
  4. Place a safety support (such as a floor jack) under the fuel tank and remove the bolts from the fuel tank straps. Allow the straps to swing out of the way. Be careful not to deform the fuel tank.
On Ranger vehicles, the rear fuel tank strap has two connections which must be unbolted.
  1. Lower the tank a few inches, then detach the fuel lines and electrical connection from the sending unit/fuel pump assembly, if required.
  2. Remove the tank from the vehicle.

To install:
  1. Before installation, it would be wise to perform the following:
    1. Double-check the tightness of the sending unit/fuel pump locking ring. If it is already loose, now would be a good time to remove it and check the condition of the gasket underneath.
    2. Ensure that all metal shields are reinstalled in their original positions and that the fasteners are secure.
    3. Be sure that the fuel vapor valve is completely installed on top of the fuel tank.
    4. Make all necessary fuel line or wiring connections which will be inaccessible after the fuel tank is installed.
  2. Raise the fuel tank into position in the vehicle. If necessary, attach the fuel lines and sending unit electrical connector before the tank is in its final position.
  3. Lubricate the fuel filler pipe with a water-based lubricant. Install the tank onto the filler pipe, then bring the tank into final position. Be careful not to deform the tank.
  4. Position the tank straps around the tank and start the retaining nut or bolt. Align the tank with the straps. If equipped, be sure the fuel tank shields are installed with the straps and are positioned correctly.
  5. Check the hoses and wiring on top of the tank. Make sure they are correctly routed and will not be pinched between the tank and body.
  6. Tighten the fuel tank strap retaining nuts or bolts to 20-5 ft. lbs. (3-41 Nm).
  7. If not already attached, connect the fuel hoses and lines. Make sure the fuel supply, fuel return (if present) and the vapor vent attachments are made properly. If not already attached, connect the sending unit.
  8. If removed, install the fuel tank skid plate.
  9. Lower the vehicle.
  10. Fill the tank with fuel and check all connections for leaks.

Losing coolant from pipes above rear axle on kia


It sounds like a leak in the water jacket of your motor, it could be just a head gasket if you're lucky. Also check for a leak in the coolant pipes them selves usualy at the connections.

Have the coolant lines checked that go to your rear air conditioning. Located near the exhast pipes. We had a similar issue and found that there is a small area that is not protected by weather, road, etc. and corrodes. This is a known issue by KIA but they will not cover it under any of their warranties. We had a KIA dealer tell us our engine was blown because he noticed antifreeze coming from the exhast pipe while up on the rack. Tried to tell us we would need to replace entire engine until they realized it was antifreeze dripping from coolant lines and dropping onto exhast pipe. I believe that since we had this repaired, there was tech report for KIA repair shops regarding this problem. Cost of repair - $700.00. This is only one of several issues I have had with this van - will never buy or recommend anyone to buy KIA. KIA does not stand behind their so called "warranty".
