I have a 2007 Durango. Engine off and ticking under hood. Stops if break is applied. Help.

Most likely the brakes cooling down. Metal contracting will make a ticking sound. This is normal for engine as well as brakes in cool down condition.

How do I oil an electric drill

What are you trying to oil and why? The only thing I ever lubricate is the part that holds the bit. I use a silicone spray.

My bit in my drill is stuck into a large tree stump... that had been cut close to the ground. How can I get the bit unstuck? My dewalt drill is unable to drill in & drill out.

If it's a twist bit try putting a vice-grip pliers on the end and turn it so the fluting pushes the bit out. If it won't move or if it's a spade bit you'll have to split the wood around the bit. You may or may not be able to do this with the offending part of the stump in the ground. Using a wedge, drive it into the stump near but not next to the bit so you don't damage the bit. Don't drive the wedge flush into the stump or you may get the bit out and then have the wedge stuck. Worst case, carefully use a chainsaw to cut out the stump so you can split the wood around the bit.

Line stuck in my ryobi RLT30CDNB

Try an easy out tool found at any hardware store. First use the appropriate size drill bit out the easy out kit and drill into the damaged part of the screw, then use the easy out tool in a drill in reverse slowlyuntil it grabs the screw and backs it out. You could get some PB blaster lubricant and spray the screws, Trust me yould never use WD-40 again. Hope this helps.

The screw point got stuck inside of the makita

Low quality steel drill bits get stuck in the Makita because the hammer impact squashes the metal, forming a ridge that gets snagged on the anvil's steel ball bearing. Use only impact drill bits.

I have a Bosch Litheon Impactor 18V Hammer drill. I've had it for about two years and used it often so I'm pretty familiar with it's operation. I seem to have gotten a bit stuck in it. I really...

If the bits get a bit distorted they will stick, if you have a bench vise clamp the bit in the jaws and give the trigger a quick pull.(reverse) That should dislodge the bit. This happens quite often on lesser quality bits that are made of soft metal.

Ive got a makita ZIC-26 hammer drill and the drill is stuck in and won't come out with the sleeve retracted. Is it possible to repair easily

if this is an SDS try grabbing the bit with some vice grips and jiggling it back and forth. DO Not do this when its plugged in or has a battery hooked up. (your model # did not mach an online search so I don't know what you've got. Also a bit of WD-40 or the like may help loosen it up.

Keyless chuck is stuck open

That can happen if the jaws inside the chuck, usually 3 triangular pieces get jammed together. With chuck facing down tap chuck several times to loosen jaws. If that doesn't work spray a small amount of WD-40 into chuck and try again
