Cannot separate new Kohler stainer from other parts

The parts are screwed on too tightly and I don't want to scratch anything trying to get them apart with a wrench. I don't even have a wrench is big enough to grip it.

Unfortunately you will need a wrench to take it apart.. you can use some contact cleaner or rust remover to loosen it up a it. Just be sure to wash all the residue off.

Kohler cimarron broken seat, replacement parts don't work 2x's

No do not use metal bolt and nut as this can crack the toilet. Just go to Lowes or Home Depot and buy 2 plastic bolts , 2 plastic wing nuts, and 2 plastic washers. Install with seat through toilet holes and tighten by hand until tight. I then use pliers to tight just a turn tighter and the seat should be center as you tightened one side, then the other, and back again until tight.

Black Kohler sink has scratches from washing my pots and pans. It is only 2 weeks do I remove them?

Try getting a light rubbing compound and buff it out . Hopefully, you have scratched it too deep. I know this hurts when you scratched. No one likes to see there "new" sink messed up.

Can I get a copy of the procedure to change the 02 sensor on a 2004 Lincoln Aviator?

You don't need a copy of anything

All O2 Sensors are in both ends of the
exhaust converters on lincolns

All you need is a 22mm or 7/8" wrench

You will be changing only the front (2) sensors,
the ones closest to the engine at 100,000 miles
or when they fail

Ideally the check light or wrench etc & codes
don't always mean to change something

Assuming you won't know or have what is necessary
to test them, just change the front 2

Get the OEM NGK or Bosch at NAPA
Once you pull the sensor ,you will see the brand on it
The new wires may be 5" longer,just coil & wire tie

I used an old scan tool with a scope on mine, as a VOM
Meter didn't give you switching time & the scope really
was a nice test. You will notice an instant pedal response
with new sensors,I did with the Lincoln LS

Check that the rear monitor O2 sensors are tight
They loosen from the heat or were never tight from
the assy line

#3&4 cyl. Have spark and fuel but air idle screws don't do anything. When warming up backfired out exhaust and carbs

Check the valve lash-sounds like valves are tight in those cylinders. Idle air screws won't do anything if the valves are tight, the motor doesn't develop vacuum when the cylinder doesn't seal. And without vacuum, carbs don't work. If the valve lash is within specs, run a compression test, most "rockets" run a minimum PSI of 150 to be within spec. Good luck!

Checked Cables how?

Looking & Touching isn't doing anything

You have to do a voltage drop test or remove
& clean the ends. I would do both

Remove the starter & have it tested at parts store,
assuming you don't know how to do a voltage or
current test while cranking.

Kohler toliets can be a pain to repair. I have found with them that the only thing to do with them is go to a plumbing company, take the model number with you and replace all in the inner parts to it. You will replace the fill valve and flush valve. After I do this on Kohler I don't have anymore problems with them. It should work for you, just make sure they are Kohler parts. Good Luck
