SOURCE: Oil

In many bikes the clutch work in oil and if you use an very good oil like sintetics with may be can cause a slipage clutch not when it is a new one but whne it have an use inportant the discs are more thin and the antifriccion oil can cause slipage more in the better oils like sintethics.

SOURCE: valve clearance check

the only time i would worry about getting the clearance on the valves checked is if the bike starts acting up there is no need to break the gasket seal just to check something that is probably alright anyway

SOURCE: oil blowing out of exhaust

Run it out, The oil has collect in the exhaust media and baffles. Iver fill can cause this proble. As long as it has oil in it, run it out (burn it out) If the oil is low when you ck it, and that should be often, Then note it. Valve guide wear is progressive and the engine would smoke. Keep the oil level proper and take it on a mellow ride, no hard throttling. You should see an improvement after about 20 miles down the freewayat 60. Just stay alertand pay attention to the sound of the motor. Good luck and let me know when you get back.

SOURCE: Loud tick noise in crankcase.

Thanks for the background info. With all the work that has been done and the good readings I can suggest a few possibilities.

  1. A broken gear tooth, (highly likely if the "tick" is not present in all gears).
  2. Broken gear tooth on the clutch hub, (highly likely if the "tick" is present in all gears).
  3. Wrong heat range on the spark plug causing detonation.
Set the air screw and pilot screw back to factory settings > turn each inward until LIGHTLY seated. Now open each of them one and one-half turns. The stock jetting should be okay.

How do I fix my noisy Husqvarna Viking 64 40.


If it is mechanical (not computerized), a thorough oiling with good fresh sewing machine oil or Tri-Flow Synthetic Lube will likely make a vast improvement. Open the top, the left side cover, and the area under the sewing surface. Gently rock the handwheel and apply 1-2 drops of oil every place that metal rubs against metal. Do NOT oil rubber/fabric belts, leather, plastic, synthetic parts or computer components. Old oil turns to glue and then varnish and actually inhibits movement. Keeping the oil fresh will help your machine keep running for a long time. Oil at least every six months when not in use. More often if the machine is used frequently.

Hi, my brand new 7258 Singer Stylist sewing machine screeches too much. I've cleaned it, oiled (Singer oil) it and changed the needle three times already, following brand instructions. Still screeching too...


Without being able to personally troubleshoot, analyze, and diagnose the screeching, no one is going to be able to solve the problem.

That said, for your understsnding of the gravity of the situation, I provide the following info and warnings!!!!!

Loud screeching like you describe is INDICATIVE OF either a pulley-belt joint slipping at very high speed, OR a BEARING in a high speed application binding, NEITHER OF WHICH IS GOOD!!!!!

To prevent possible total destruction of your machine, I strongly suggest the you unplug it UNTIL you can get it to a QUALIFIED repair TECHNICIAN for troubleshooting.

The symptoms you describe are indicative of a very serious problem which could result in severe damage to your machine!

Do I need to oil the 7200? Manual does not mention it.


There are no user oil spots on the elna 7200. It does require lubrication. It is important to take these modern machines in for service by a professional regularly.

My 2000 pontiac sunfire is making a ticking noise from the engine what is it


A ticking noise is normally caused by a lifter. Your car is 11 years old so more than likely is high mileage. There could be some carbon buildup in the lifter or it may just be worn. Purchase a can of Seafoam Motor Treatment at most auto parts stores and walmart. Pour 1.5 ounces of Seafoam for each quart of oil capacity in the crankcase 100 miles before you change your oil & filter. rive that 100 miles, and then change your oil and filter and add Seafoam to the freshly changed oil. Drive the car for 1,000 miles and change the oil & filter again. Repeat the process and then change your oil & filter at 5,000 miles. If you have a sticking liter this will solve the problem. If the lifter is still ticking then it is worn or severely gummed up with carbon. The ticking will do no real harm and is expensive to repair.

2002 montero sport, i am experiencing tapping/ticking noise in the upper head department of 3.6 v6 engine. i change my oil regularly every 3000 miles. i put in seafoam in gas tank hoping it would help...


hi putting seafoam in fuel will clean the valves and pistons over time to use to do lifters you need to add to oil measure out the right amount for the oil measurements on the can.. also the tapping is it more when its cold or just the same no matter hot or cold or is it more louder when hot. when was the last time the timing was checked, are you using 5w/30 or 10w/30 oil.

it sounds like your oil pump is not working good. check oil pressure at cold and what weight oil are you using. it may be too heavy for it to get up to the top of the motor quick.if there was any build up in the head when you changed the lifters you may want to flush the oil system good then put fresh oil back in

I have 55,688 miles on my 2003 CTS. The low oil pressure/stop engin warning light comes on after I have been driving for 20 minutes or so only when car is idling at stop signs. The oil registers full and...


The oil pump could be bad, or going bad. Oil pressure is effected by wear on the crankshaft main bearings and camshaft/s bearings. If those bearings are bad, that would make it lose oil pressure, but I wouldn't think it's time for a new motor at that mileage!!! I would find out what the actual oil pressure is, using a "wet gauge" or oil pressure gauge. The oil pressure sending could also be bad, giving false readings.

I just bought a used Bernina 150 and the stitching is great but it is making really weird noises like a shaker squeking noise when I go at top speed.


I think this is an indication that you need to oil your machine. Follow the directions in your user's manual. Use special sewing machine oil that is clear and available from sewing shops. I also think it is best to clear out any fluff (lint) before you oil your machine.

Lifter noise


There is a tendency for you tohear some noise because they are normally pretty quiet, but just in case you didn't check it out put your hand on the gas cap cover when going down the road.They vibrate after awhile> you might try synthetic oil also, it does quiet them down.
