1999 chrysler 300M won't shift out of park. Pulled so ******* the shifter it broke.


possible internal locking pawl stuck fault or adjustment required

ADJUSTMENTS
sourced from another forum

The park interlock cable is part of the brake/shift lever interlock system. Correct cable adjustment is important to proper interlock operation. The gear shift and park lock cables must both be correctly adjusted in order to shift out of PARK.

ADJUSTMENT PROCEDURE

1. Remove floor console as necessary for access to the park lock cable.

2. Shift the transmission into the PARK position.

3. Turn ignition switch to LOCK position. Be sure ignition key cylinder is in the LOCK position. Cable will not adjust correctly in any other position.
NOTE: If the key will not turn to the LOCK position, pull up on the cable lock button and manually move the cable in and out until the key can be turned to the LOCK position.

4. Pull cable lock button up to release cable, if necessary.

5. Remove and discard the cable adjuster lock pin, if a new cable is being installed.

6. Ensure that the cable is free to self-adjust by pushing cable rearward and releasing.

7. Push lock button down until it snaps in place. The lock should be 1-2mm below the surface of the cylindrical portion of the cable

HOTPOINT 9526 DOOR STAY LOCKED AFTER FINISHED THE CYCLE


The first thing to check is - does the washing machine still have water inside? If there is obviously still water inside the machine then this is possibly the cause of the door not opening. Drain the machine.

Can't see any water inside

If you can't see any water inside then it may be caused by various faults listed below. Here's a list of the most common causes of a jammed door -
  1. On some machines if the pressure switch doesn't reset to empty it keeps the door lock energized. If this is the case though, unplugging it should allow the door lock to cool down and open after a few minutes.
  2. The water hasn't pumped out properly (or a blockage in the pressure system is holding the pressure switch on) - but only if the washing machine has a pneumatic (air operated) door safety lock (a rubber hose connected to the door interlock and connected to a pressure chamber bottle on the tub - water forces air up this tube and locks the door)
  3. The water has pumped out properly, but the pressure switch hasn't reset due to a faulty pressure switch or blockage in the pressure system - or the water hasn't pumped out properly and the pressure switch hasn't reset because of the water inside. A faulty pressure switch, or blockage of debris inside the pressure chamber bottle could also be trapping the air that's operating the door lock (if a pneumatic lock is fitted - not many have these days).
  4. The door interlock has just jammed
  5. The door catch, handle, or some part of the door catch mechanism is broken and not opening the door
  6. ****** (a device that detects the motion of the drive belt fitted to many older Hotpoint washing machines which "pecks" at the belt when the door handle or button is operated) is broken or has fallen off
Opening a jammed door Do not take the lid off and reach inside the washing machine to try and release the door if the washing machine is still plugged in as you will be electrocuted.
The most common cause of a jammed door is likely to be a faulty door interlock. Sometimes you can release the door from the inside by manipulating the door interlock or forcing the door catch out from it. But they sometimes just have to be broken away from the machine. If you need to do this make sure you -
  1. Unplug it
  2. Break the interlock off from inside the machine, don't force the door or you will just break more parts

How do you change a fuel filter


All WJ models have two fuel filters, a strainer filter at the bottom of the fuel pump module inside the fuel tank and one exterior filter within the fuel pressure regulator. Both filters are designed for extended service. They do not require normal scheduled maintenance. Filters should only be replaced if a diagnostic procedure indicates to do so.

The combination fuel filter/pressure regulator is located in front of the fuel tank and above the rear axle. It is transversely mounted to a chassis crossmember (left-to-right). The filter/regulator is equipped with 3 fuel line fittings (2 at one end and 1 at the other end). The single fitting facing the left side of the vehicle is the supply line to the fuel rail. The 2 fittings facing the right side of the vehicle are connected to the fuel tank. Of these 2 fittings, the fitting towards the front is used for fuel return to the fuel tank. The fitting towards the rear is a pressure line.

External filter/regulator removal
WARNING: THE FUEL SYSTEM IS UNDER A CONSTANT PRESSURE (EVEN WITH THE ENGINE OFF). BEFORE SERVICING ANY FUEL SYSTEM HOSES, FITTINGS OR LINES, THE FUEL SYSTEM PRESSURE MUST BE RELEASED.

1. Remove fuel fill cap.
2. Remove fuel pump relay from Power Distribution Center (PDC). For location of relay, refer to label on underside of PDC cover.
3. Start and run engine until it stalls.
4. Attempt restarting engine until it will no longer run.
5. Turn ignition key to OFF position.
6. Disconnect negative battery cable at battery.
7. Raise vehicle.
8. Clean area around 3 filter/regulator fittings.
9. Disconnect fuel supply, fuel return and fuel pressure lines at filter/regulator. Special tools may be required.
10. Remove 2 mounting bolts and remove filter/regulator.



External filter/regulator installation
1. Before installing filter/regulator, be sure all fittings are cleaned of all dirt and contaminants.
2. Be sure o-ring is positioned into fuel return fitting in filter/regulator.
3. Apply a small amount of clean engine oil to o-rings.
4. Position filter/regulator to body and install 2 bolts. Tighten bolts. Refer to Torque Specifications.
5. Connect 3 fittings.
6. Connect negative battery cable to battery.
7. Start engine and check for leaks.


Hope helps (remember rated this).

    Washing machine door wont open - hotpoint


    Hi,
    Never reach inside the washing machine with it connected to the mains. The door interlock is always live.
    There are several reasons why a Hotpoint door could be jammed shut.
    •A broken door catch or door frame where the door catch screws in (they are rubbish on many Hotpoints - always breaking) you can sometimes get the door open if you push the door firmly in as you open it
    •If there is water still inside the washing machine, then the door wont open either on these Hotpoint washing machines (not on some others though) If this is the case, when you try to open the door the ****** won't try to move down at all. You can open the door usually if you drain the machine. (only applicable with door interlocks that have a rubber pressure hose attached to them)
    •A faulty door interlock
    •The pressure chamber can be blocked on some earlier Hotpoint washing machines which gives the same effect as having water in the machine. Basically the washer "thinks" there is water in when there isn't. This would require the washing machine being stripped down to remove and clean the pressure chamber bottle. This cause is only applicable to washing machines where a small rubber hose is connected to the door interlock. This hose allows the door mechanism to be locked and unlocked by air pressure activated by water rising inside the pressure chamber bottle attached at the other end on the tub. Gunge can block the very small aperture where the pressure hose fits to the pressure chamber bottle.

    Door won't open on wf000


    Hi,
    Never reach inside the washing machine with it connected to the mains. The door interlock is always live!
    There are several reasons why a Hotpoint door could be jammed shut. One of them is the part you describe which is called the ******. With some older Hotpoint models, there is a cable that runs from the door interlock to the motor. When you operate the door catch or button, this part "pecks" down onto the drive belt or the end of the armature's shaft. If the drum is moving, the ****** will slip on the rotating belt or armature and disengage the door interlock. If the drum is not moving, the ****** meets resistance and the door opens. Therefore if the ****** has come off, or is loose, it can stop the door opening. When you attempt to open the door does this part move?
    Other things that can stop the door opening are -
    A broken door catch or door frame where the door catch screws in (they are rubbish on many Hotpoint’s - always breaking) you can sometimes get the door open if you push the door firmly in as you open it

    Changing fuel filter on 2002 Mazda pickup


    Clean all dirt and/or grease from the fuel filter fittings. "Quick Connect" fittings are used on models equipped with a pressurized fuel system. These fittings must be disconnected using the proper procedure or the fittings may be damaged. The fuel filter uses a "hairpin" clip retainer. Spread the two hairpin clip legs about 1/8 in. (3mm) each to disengage it from the fitting, then pull the clip outward. Use finger pressure only; do not use any tools. Push the quick connect fittings onto the filter ends. Mazda recommends that the retaining clips be replaced whenever removed. The fuel tubes used on these fuel systems are manufactured in 5/16 in. and 3/8 in. diameters. Each fuel tube takes a different size hairpin clip, so keep this in mind when purchasing new clips. A click will be heard when the hairpin clip snaps into its proper position. Pull on the lines with moderate pressure to ensure proper connection. Start the engine and check for fuel leaks. If the inertia switch (reset switch) was disconnected to relieve the fuel system pressure, cycle the ignition switch from the OFF to ON position several times to re-charge the fuel system before attempting to start the engine.
    0900c15280192eed.jpgRemove the "hairpin" clip retainers to access the fuel line fittingsThe inline reservoir type fuel filter should last the life of the vehicle under normal driving conditions. If the filter does need to be replaced, proceed as follows:
    CAUTIONIf the fuel filter is being serviced with the rear of the vehicle higher than the front, or if the tank is pressurized, fuel leakage or siphoning from the tank fuel lines could occur. to prevent this condition, maintain the vehicle front end at or above the level of the rear of vehicle. also, relieve tank pressure by loosening the fuel fill cap. cap should be tightened after pressure is relieved.
    1. Shut the engine off. Depressurize the fuel system.
    2. Raise and support the vehicle safely.
    3. Detach the fuel lines from both ends of the fuel filter by disengaging both push connect fittings. Install new retainer clips in each push connect fitting.
    4. Note which way the flow direction arrow points on the old filter.
    5. Remove the filter from the bracket by loosening the filter retaining clamp enough to allow the filter to pass through.
    The flow direction arrow should be positioned as installed in the bracket to ensure proper flow of fuel through the replacement filter.
    1. Install the filter in the bracket, ensuring proper direction of flow as noted by arrow. Tighten clamp to 15-25 inch lbs.
    2. Install the push connect fittings at both ends of the filter.
    3. Lower the vehicle.
    4. Start the engine and check for leaks.
    1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the Precautions section.
    2. Properly relieve the fuel system pressure.
    3. Remove or disconnect the following:
      • Negative battery cable
      • Push connect and R-clip fittings from the fuel filter
