How do ya fill in a ingrown cistern


Unless you have access to a pump, I would fill it while it is full. The water will come out as it is filled. Gravel would be best, but you may want to be sure no one is watching. Depending on where you are, there are some regulations about such things, as silly as it sounds.

Wa52j8700a dirt remains bottom of washer


I would try to run an empty washer through about 4 or 5 rinse cycles and see it the machine will clean itself.
I would also carefully wipe it out after each complete cycle.
God bless your efforts.

02 ford escape awd, have weird grinding sound from transfercase when on dry pavement only.it works but its a.bad noise.


You've basically answered your own question, if you want to know specifics on your transfer case I can find that out for you but it is evidently broken. Most awds have some sort of clutch mechanism inside that allows some slippage between the front and the rear. When this goes bad it will either grind like you indicated or lock up causing the tires to skip on pavement. The front and rear are working against each other causing the grinding on pavement, you won't notice this on snow, dirt, gravel or ice because your tires are sliding rather than putting so much stress on the transfer case to make it grind.

Why is there a grinding sound when turning? Power steering fluid is full


Grinding or whining? A lot of power steering pumps kinda whine when turning. How long has it been since you've changed the power steering fluid? Since 2000??? It looses it viscosity kinda like motor oil. I'd change it first, that's the cheapest and easiest thing to do

Fwd lights always on jeep compass


try it in dirt yet (gravel, sand, grass dirt)
since you didnt post transfer case type can't answer
if you use , part time 4wd on dry pavement this will happen as
will 4low or lock. read the operators guide, one more time.

its a new car get it serviced, or drive in dirt, and turn off 4wd
see if it stays off. if you use the car wrong, the dealer will just stare at you, in a very not so funny way.

new cars come with options, or by sub model, (same really)
some have Automatic Full-Time Four-Wheel Drive
which one?
The Compass also features two electronically controlled four-wheel drive systems. Freedom Drive I and Freedom Drive II, Freedom Drive I is a full-time four-wheel drive system with locking capabilities

if some one used LOCK
you need to unluck in dirt. drive to side of road with gravel
or any loose surface and get bad to normal.
read opeators guide 1 more time.....

Try removing the belt and see if the pulley pulls out of the pump housing. I've seen the pump shafts break, especially in sub-zero temperatures

What is the best color of gravel to use in my aquarium?


Color selection is a personal choice for the most part. My personal preference is black. I have many bright fish in my tank, so they contrast nicely off the black gravel. Other people prefer beige or something a little more natural looking. I would not recommend white though; dirt shows up very easily and your tank will never look as clean as you would like it to.

As soon as the motor starts up after the dishwasher fills, the motor makes a loud grinding noise that turns into high pitch whining. Water begins leaking from above the pump.


That shows a leaking water seal. Water would run into the motor bearings which then rust and make noise. You probably need the motor / pump kit.
