I own a 2010 Husqvarna 2454 zero turn mower It has 163 hours of operation time on it. I have changed the oil twice and ready to do a third change however, I have never been able to get the "change oil...

Your changing your oil at the correct times IE: Yearly if you wait for the oil light to work you will need to leave it for approx 3 years.
My best Advice is both of you ignore the oil light it's too late & damages the motor if you leave it until the light shows Keep up your own routine it will last you must longer & you will get better service for everything. Best Wishes, Malcolm Campbell.

Skoda Octavia Ambiente 2004 1.9 tdi, automatic gear: Problem1: board alarm, Glow plug system remains on at starting and contiune to flush in running. Engine starts hardly second or third time. Problem2:...

problem one is the timer control for the heaters ,also check the heaters that they are working ,oil problem ? look under the rubber boot that goes over the oil switch ,pull it back and if oil under the cover renew the oil switch,these motors do suffer from heater light flashing on and i know people have spent megabucks trying to cure it ,its a fault with dash and printed circuits ,but the heaters are not coming on i know because i have driven one with the heater circuit light coming on and i had a extended light on a long wire and the heaters are not coming on ,ignore it just renew the faulty glow plugs,as for EGR valve just pull teh vacumn pipe off the ERG valve and leave disconnect ,more hassle than its worth changing it ,you could end up with a ECU computer .Still a nice reliable motor though and economical

I need to know if it is possible to transport side by side refrigerators laying flat. or almost flat. This will be a short move for about 1/2 hour.

Hello, Yes you can move your side by side laying on it's is most important though that when you have it in it's new place you leave it unpluged for 24 hours so the oils can run back into the compressor. If you have any other questions please feel free to comment again...Mike

Economic printing with xerox 8400 - On, or Off ??

My recommendation is to save up your print jobs for a week or so and turn it off. You can go ahead and tell the computer to print. The jobs will sit in queue until printer is available again. These work best at over 3,000 prints per month so you're going to have to baby it or you'll start getting plugged jets. When that cleaning page prints on startup, if you see any streaks, run the eliminate light stripes process immediately.

Efficency with Oil Column heating

because it operates on room air temperature, if this is the only means of heat to this room, leaving it on would be more economical thus keeping the rise in air temp time less=less time it works hard to match what you desire. but if not only source of heat no. time to heat room would be almost the same thus you would save what you used during the day due to fluctuations in room temps between time your furnace would kick on and off.
