Either the big end- or the top end bearings are almost dead. I've seen this on many bikes including my own GSXR. It's not really something you should attemt to fix yourself, it's a massive job. Rather take it to a shop, and let them check it out for you... Hope that helps

I have a 2009 BMW X5 and its making a crackling noise in the engine. When I accelerate it goes away but is present when the vehicle is stopped or at low speeds. Please help

The crackling sound you hear is called pre-ignition. Meaning your either running too cheap a fuel or the engine needs timing reset because timing is too far advanced and causing pre-ignition. That means the spark plugs are firing earlier than they should.

Making an odd noise, and I can't figure out what it is...

Make sure the belt is tight. You can try spraying some belt conditioner on the ribbed side with the engine running. It can also be pulley bearings--especially the idler. Try spraying a little oil on the accessory bearings with the engine running. If the chirping stops where you spray, replace that part.

About 100 or 110 km and all of the sudden the engine shut it off. so i put on d side of the road and try to start it wont start but it turns. so i asked a tow truck to bring it home. the next morning i...

i think that if the engine cut off right away when the belt broke that it should still be ok ,just have to make sure it is put back aligning all the timing marks

Bosch dishwasher timer freezing

There is a recall on the control board of many of these models, butyour problem is likely not related. It sounds like a plugged drain system or a possible bad drain pump. That's why you are hearing the pump running constantly. I have written a guide to help. It is here. Thanks!

I have a borowed Blackberry Pearl. I can't figure out how to turn my audible ringer "ON!" Among many other issues but, I can't hear when my phone has an incoming call! Help please?

Go to profiles and make sure it's not in "quiet" or "vibrate" mode. If it is, choose either normal or loud.

If normal or loud are already selected you may need to go to advanced settings (at the bottom of the profile list).

In the advanced menu, click on the active profile, then choose phone. Make sure it is set for "tone" or "vibrate + tone" in both the out of holster and in holster sections.

THIS IS NORMAL noise for your truck. carbon buildup on pistons causes a cold start knock until warms up. you can run some top engine cleaner thru engine to help. but noise is nothing to affect life of engine
