Question about MagLite Mag-Lite& Flashlight

Open Question

I have a 3-D Maglite which shines dim. I replaced batteries and bulb and the flashlight is still dim. I have taken out the switch assembly and stripped it completely down and found some markings on a

I have used an anti-seize lubricanton the threads on the headpiece and down by the batteries. Is there something that can be done to repair the actual switch? I read silicone lubricant allows electricity to pass through better. Would it be worth it to try on the pieces in the switch? I'm for trying to fix this piece rather than purchase a new one, I'm trying to learn as much as I can about how things work and repairing. Thanks

    Cut a portion of my question. I found scratch-like marks on the tab that rests against the light's housing as well as the ring in the piece that "clicks" has faded some. I don't know if those are significant, but the switch was completely clean and intact when I disassembled it.

What is the size of the thermostat housing bolts on a 2011 Impala


Should be a 13mm to remove them.

If you need the thread size and actual length, just call a dealership parts department and they can give you the specs.
I would not use cheaper bolts for the install as they can corrode and snap off easier than the stock bolts.....which may have already done the same.
Make sure to use some nickel anti-seize when installing

Tip

Anti Seize


Silver anti seize can be aluminum threads best friend, especially spark plugs and drain plugs. It helps prevent galling and cross threading. For those of you that have had to use an impact driver or hammer and chisel to get a fastener to break loose from aluminum threads, clean threads and a little dab of anti seize will keep that from happening in the future. Remember to always use proper torque specs when re-installing any fastener.

Why does my 2d mag flash light stay dim


Check for corrosion at the bulb, or the spring or the switch. This happens sometimes when batteries leak internally.

My 6d maglite keeps blowing the bulb


6D Maglite? As in 6 D cell batteries?

1-1/2 Volts (Each battery), times 6 = 9 Volts.
Using the proper bulb?

The original is a Krypton bulb. (No, I didn't make the name up)

http://www.batteryjunction.com/maglite6c.html

Guess what happens if you put a 3 Volt bulb with 9 Volts?

Do spark plugs need to be tork down.......................


In an ideal world, they are, in actuality it rs rare. If you have aluminum heads, be sure to use anti seize on the threads.

Need to replace oxygen sensor


TO REPLACE OXYGEN YOU NEED A SLOTTED SOCKET AND A TUBE ANTI SEIZE COMPOUND. MOST OF THE TIME NEW OXYGEN SENSOR ALREADY HAS ANTI SEIZE COMPOUND USED ON THE THREADS.TO REPLACE OXYGEN SENSOR FIRST CRANK VECHICLE FOR A FEW MINUTES SO YOU CAN REMOVE OXYGEN SENSOR MORE EASILY. ONCE YOU GET THE EXHAUST LITTLE WARM.YOU DISCONNECT OXYGEN SENSOR CONNECTOR TAKE SLOTTED SOCKET REMOVE OXYGEN SENSOR APPLY ANTI SEIZE ON OXYGEN SENSOR THREADS THE SCREW IT IN PLACE..WEAR LONG SLEEVES COVERALLS, SAFETY GLASSES KEEP RUST PARTICLES GETTING INTO YOUR EYES. AND LEATHER GLOVES KEEP HANDS FROM CUTS AND EXHAUST BURNS. IF YOU REPLACING DOWN STREAM OXYGEN SENSOR YOU HAVE TO RAISE VECHICLE SUPPORT ON JACKSTANDS. FOR UP STREAM OXYGEN SENSOR YOU CAN REPLACE WITHOUT RAISING THE VECHICLE.REASON I SAY CRANK ENGINE TO WARM UP EXHAUST SYSTEM BECAUSE METAL EXPANDS WHEN HOT THAT MAKES REMOVING OXYGEN SENSOR EASIER. IF YOU DONT CRANK VECHICLE THE COLD CAUSES METAL TO SHRINK MAKING HARDER TO REMOVE OXYGEN SENSOR.POSSIBLY DAMAGING SENSOR THREADS WHILE TRYING TO LOOSEN SENSOR FROM EXHAUST MANIFOLD OR PIPE. YOU CAN BUY SLOTTED SOCKET AND ANTI SEIZE COMPOUND AT ANY AUTO PARTS STORES.

1 "D" cell battery is corroded and stuck inside.


Here are the instructions:
http://www.maglite.com/pdf/CustServ/CD_switch_repair_8_0410212004718132.pdf

If you remove the tail cap (the part that you unscrew to put the batteries in the flashlight) and the head assembly (the part that has the light bulb) you should be able to push the battery out. Wear some of those disposable latex gloves as that chemical that comes out of the batteries is very corrosive. Or at least wash your hands really well before touching anything, especially your eyes. Good luck.

My maglite recharable three battery light will not turn on. The battery is ok and bulb looks ok. I dropped it once. Need help.


Best thing to do is send in for warranty repair if the battery an bulb is OK. I would replace the bulb first to verify that it is OK. If it does not work then go to:

and find the nearest repair center.

I have a 2005 GMC Savana G3500 and I need to know how many O2 sensors there are and where they are. Can anyone help?


Oxygen Sensor
Removal & Installation
CAUTION
The oxygen sensor in-line connector and
louvered end must be kept clear of grease, dirt or other contaminants. Avoid
using cleaning solvents of any type. DO NOT drop or roughly handle the oxygen
sensor.
The oxygen sensor may be difficult to remove when the engine
temperature is less than 48°C (120°F)

NOTE: Removal of the oxygen sensor is
easier when the engine temperature is above 48°C (120°F).

Upstream HO2S Sensor
To Remove:


  1. Before servicing the vehicle refer to the Cautions and
    Warnings at the beginning of this section.
  2. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  3. Remove or disconnect the following:

    • Electrical harness connector (A) from the HO2 S.
    • Remove the HO2 S (B) using special service tool
      J39194-B.

To Install:

CAUTION
GM uses a special anti-seize compound on the
HO2S threads. The compound consists of liquid graphite and glass
beads. The graphite tends to burn away but the glass beads remain easing sensor
removal. New or service replacement sensors have the anti-seize compound already
applied to the threads. If the sensor is removed from an exhaust component and
if for any reason the sensor is to be reinstalled the threads must have
anti-seize compound applied before installation.


  1. Coat the HO2 S threads with GM P/N 5613695
    high-temperature anti-seize compound as needed.
  2. Install the HO2 S using special service tool
    J39194-B;

    • Torque to 31 ft-lbs (42 Nm).

  3. Connect the HO2 S electrical harness connector.
  4. Lower the vehicle to the ground.

    • Electrical harness connector (A) from the HO2S.
