Vieira1 The ball and spring go in the soap inlet valve. It closes this valve when the pump is on high pressure. Your engine may need a tune up, oil, or the idle adjusted. Choke problem. Sounds like your carb needs a real good cleaning

Engine shuts off after driving 45 min when parking in reverse.But 15 min before this engine and slippery road icon comes on.2 hrs later car starts and drives normal then shuts off again 45 min later.

most commonly found problem relates to an electronic component heating up and shutting down. Have you checked to confirm there is fuel pressure when the vehicle shuts off. Is the check engine light on. Have you checked codes ? I suggest hooking up a fuel pressure gauge and letting vehicle run till it shuts off while monitoring the fuel pressure. If you loose fuel pressure, next step is to confirm there power going to the pump, if there is power going to the pump with no fuel pressure replace pump. Another suggestion would be to check for spark when vehicle stops running to eliminate an ignition problem. good luck

Cleaning Air Conditioner Condenser Coil with Pictures

The most important Air Conditioning maintenance that needs to be done every year is the cleaning of the condenser coil. Doing the job of cleaning the A/C coil is the best way to make sure that your air conditioning system is working efficiently and giving you the best performance possible.

The tools needed to do the air conditioner condenser coil cleaning will be:

Garden hose with nozzle
Garden pump sprayer
Condenser coil cleaner (can be purchased at HVAC Supply houses, or many hardware type stores)
Hand tools needed to remove condenser fan

To do the job correctly you will need to first turn off the power to the unit and remove the condenser fan.


Once the condenser fan is removed then, you should wet down the condenser fins with a garden hose. Use nozzle that will give you a high volume spray but not with high pressure. Too much pressure will bend the fragile fins and cause them to shut off the ability of the air to flow through them, this is want you want to avoid. You want it to be as easy as possible for the air to get through the fins, for the best possible heat exchange.

After wetting the fins, you then will need to spray the fins inside and out with a foaming coil cleaner. Make sure to wear eye protection and hand protection. If you have sensitive skin, you may also want to wear long sleeves to protect exposed skin. I buy it in a concentrated formula then dilute it with water to the proper working formula. You may need to go over the fins a couple of times with the coil cleaner to get it worked into the fins. Allow the coil cleaner time to work the dirt loose and boil it out of the fins.



After about fifteen minutes start to rinse the coils with fresh water. This will take a long time and lots of water to fully rinse the coil cleaner from the fins. It also is very important that you get everything rinsed fully. Failure to do this will result in excessive dirt accumulation and also can cause corrosion. Make sure that the water is running clear and that all bubbles are gone before stopping your rinse.

Then reassemble the condenser fan, turn on the power, and check the operation of the unit. It is okay to run the unit immediately after washing it. The water will not hurt the unit.


You now will have an Air Conditioning unit that will give you the best possible performance!

Pressure washer runs for 15 minutes then shut itself off. Overheating? I have to let it cool for 30 minutes before it can be used again, may be for 10 minutes before shutting down again. What can b

Not enough water VOLUME and pressure to supply the pump with a steady flow of water. Water is cavatating (adding air to the water) and the piston is heating up and jambing. Try using a larger size hose diameter and a shorter hose to supply the pump.

Super hot here in the 110 area yesterday the pump just stopped running hit the high pressure reset ran about 15-20 min did it again once it cooled off in the evening no problems till today when it got...

Clean the out door coil, take a garden hose to it, and be thorough. A dirty coil can not reject the heat and will shut down. You should clean the indoor coil as well just watch that water stays out of the furnace.

Sprayer will not stop pumping when switched to pump mode after primed it will not shut down it just keeps pumping. .

Paint sprayer.
Flip lever down to prime > paint comes out small plastic hose.
Flip lever up to put pressure on spray line.

Problem: prime keeps running and spray line never gets pressure.

Future solution:
You did not clean sprayer very well last time, or it is rusted. When cleaning, run full 5 gallons of cleaner through machine twice.
You should fill spray line and pump with kerosene if machine sits idle more than few days.
We all forget.

Good news: you have prime. If machine doesn't prime, you probably have to disassemble.

More good news: There are two steel balls inside pump. Tap top one with hammer to loosen. Keep machine running. Keep lever up. Start tapping top one. Tap a little harder... keep tapping ... sometimes it will not free up ... take apart pipe and see if you can nudge ball loose >> be careful not to scratch anything... the sprayer is high pressure and all parts have to fit

Need to clean coils

A power (pressure) washer generates too much pressure. It will bend the fins on the tubes.
Always isolate the power from the unit prior to opening the unit to perform any work. Remember that there can be both 220 and 110 volts present (main and thermostat), so be sure that you have it off.
For the outside unit, appliance parts supply stores sell a chemical that you can spray on with a garden sprayer, and then hose with a garden hose and spray nozzle from the inside.
For the inside coils, you can get good results with coil cleaner from one of the "home hardware" stores, or from an appliance parts supply store. It is in an aerosol can. This is sprayed on the coils and also hosed off.
One must be very cautious when using these chemicals, taking precautions to protect your eyes and exposed skin, as these chemicals are caustic or acid in nature and can easily burn your eyes. They also foam up in between the tubes/fins and on the surface, displacing the dirt.
For inside coils, you can remove the outside layer of debris with a medium brush and then spray. Fin brushes and combs are also made for this purpose. I usually follow this with another brushing and spray again, then wash down from the inside. Here again you need to be careful. The aim is to remove the build up, and flush off the chemical residue, without damaging your coils. It usually takes me at least two cans of cleaner for an inside coil. I drag a garden hose in the house and wash the coil down in bursts, to avoid running the collection tray over onto the floor. Outside coils are usually clean enough after one mixed container in the garden sprayer. Some aerosol sprays are deemed OK for both the inside and outside coils, and I have used them satisfactorily. Again, about two cans is what I usually need. The key, in my mind, is to apply and flush thoroughly from the inside towards the outside.
Hope that this was helpful,

1984 bronco 2-runs 15 min shuts down wont start again for 20 runs

If the fuel filter is dirty it will settle when you turn the truck off. When it runs for a few minutes the debris in the filter will get sucked into the screen and stop the fuel from getting through. If it was a starter or coil, it would not start at all.
