Sounds like to much water pressure.  Try turning the shut off valve off.  Flush the toilet.  Then slowly turn the valve back on until it makes the noise again.  When the noise is heard, turn the valve back a little bit untill the sound stops.

Put diesel into my radiator did not run before drained it flushed it and refilled with new coolant but can still smell diesel when remove radiator cap! can suction it off the top?


Drain your system again, fill with plain water and a radiator flush agent such as STP, Gunk, or Prestone. Run the engine up to temperature to make certain the coolant passes through the engine thermostat. After the radiator is cool again, drains the water & refill with water/anti-freeze mix. If you try to skim off the diesel, it'll take you a very long time to get it all out, and you may possibly never get the smell of diesel out of your radiator.

How to adjust a toilet


  • Your toilet tank may simply need a good "tune-up." Here are some adjustments you can make.

  • Refill valve. If your tank has a conventional ballcock refill valve, the water level is adjusted by bending the float arm. The level should be high enough for complete flushes, but the water should not be to the top of the overflow pipe. Your tank should have a colored or molded water level mark. It should never be set so low that the bowl does not refill with trap sealing water. The rule of thumb is to set the water level about 3/4" below the top of the overflow pipe.

  • If the float rubs on other parts, simply adjust the float arm sideways. If the float lacks buoyancy, unscrew then shake it to determine if it is waterlogged. A waterlogged float should be replaced. The float arm can also be replaced, if needed.

  • In tanks using modern plastic refill valves, the tank water level is adjusted in other ways. If your tank uses a hand nut, turn the nut clockwise to raise, or counterclockwise to lower, the water level. Or, your tank may have a sliding pinch clamp on an adjustment rod.

  • Flush valve. Replacements for a flush ball and its actuating mechanism are available, but it may be possible to stop a leak with minor adjustments. Check the following mechanisms before purchasing replacements.

  • See that the guide arm is centered directly over the seat. The guide arm should drop the flush ball directly into its seat. If the flush ball is not seating properly, make the adjustment shown.

  • The guide arm should allow the flush ball to rise enough for a complete flush. If not, raise the arm. Be careful that it isn't too high–then it will prevent the ball from closing completely.

  • Check that the upper lift wire pulls the flush ball high enough. To adjust it, simply bend the wire for a higher or lower lift.

  • The lifting hardware on a flapper-type flush valve should raise the rubber flapper to start a flush, but should not hold the flapper up off its seat. If this is occurring, the hardware is adjusted too short. Some types allow you to slide the flapper itself up or down on the refill tube to ensure that the flapper meets the valve seat squarely. The lifting hardware and flapper height adjustments are the first things to check when flapper problems arise.

  • Refill tube. If the bowl-refill tube is out of place, water is routed directly into the tank, rather than replenishing water in the bowl. When this is the case, you will likely hear splashing sounds during tank refill. The refill tube should aim directly into the overflow pipe but should not reach below water level. If the tube extends too low, it will siphon tank water silently away. Fix it by repositioning as shown.

  • Defective refill tubes on some valves can be replaced with new plastic ones. Simply place one end of the plastic tube over the serrated plastic lug on the body of the valve, and place the plastic holder in the top of the overflow pipe.

    Every time we flush the toilet it makes a screeching sound, like something is about to explode, any ideas on how to make it stop?


    sounds like the valve is making the noise. You will need to replace it to stop the sound. The valve is the part of the stool that is located in the tank, the water supply connects to the bottom of it, and it lets the water refill the tank until the float turns it off.

    When you flush, the bowl refills and then suddenly empties 90% of the refilled water. Why? This is a toto toilet and this happens almost all the time now.


    it sounds like it is not flushing completely at first and then releases and the suction is pulling water out of the bowl. Could be a venting issue or a clog issue that is hindering the proper flushing of the toilet.

    My dual flush toilet fills up slowly how do i fix


    Lift the tank lid off, place it somewhere safe for a moment, and look at what happens: If you're talking about jiggling the handle to get the tank to start to fill with water, then it sounds like the chain or rope is out of adjustment. It can't be TOO TIGHT or the water will leak past your flapper (will cause your dripping noise, tank water level will leak down, causing constant refills), and it cant be TOO LOOSE or the toilet won't flush correctly. Since you didn't mention trouble flushing the toilet, I think that it may be a little too TIGHT. When you jiggle the flush lever-it is supposed to pull a chain or cable to open the flapper at the bottom of the tank. Flush the tank and watch what happens-all the way through to refilling the tank with water and shutting off the water refill valve-Does the flapper get stuck on the chain or something? It is supposed to fall back down to allow the tank to refill after flushing out your toilet. Does the chain look very loose? The dripping sound you described indicates that the flapper is not sealing 100%. The flapper is very easy to replace, you just have to get the adjustment set for when you flush the toilet how sensitive you need it. You amy have to play with it a little bit before you get the adjustment correct.

    Hope this helps!

    Bowl will not fill.


    There is usually a small tube on the top of the ballcock or the fill valve in the toilet tank. The tube should be clipped to the top of the flush valve pipe so that the water will flow into it. Should the small tube become loose and fall off of the clip, the refill water will not make it back into the bowl.

    yeah sounds as though the ball valve or water inlet valve is stuck in the closed position or jammed so when you flush the loo the water doesnt refill.
