Engine loud

If this is knocking is coming from within the engine, some possible causes could be using too low grade of fuel (regular vs plus or premium if your vehicle calls for higher grades), some timing issues, needing to replace your spark plugs (may have incorrect or worn out plugs), or plugs & wires if your vehicle has both (some do not), some internal combustion issues, or possibly even problems with rods/bearings. How's your oil pressure??? Are your gauges reading low? This can be a cause! Sometimes vehicles will "knock" if the oil level drops too low, or it may not knock until the oil in the engine has been depleted. (You could be facing serious engine problems if this happens!) If you keep your oil checked and at the accurate levels, and keep it and the filters changed regularly to ensure "clean" oil in your engine, this helps with lubrication of the engine parts, helping with lessening of the wear and tear on the engine, as well as extending the life of your engine. (It is also helpful to let your engine idle for a little while and warm up before driving (especially with rapid acceleration habits) to allow the parts to become lubricated, especially in cold weather). If you try upgrading to plus or premium fuel in your car, and it doesn't help, make sure your engine oil level is okay. If you're unsure, ask your mechanic to check things out for you. You may just need a good tune up. Regular service and maintenance is essential for your vehicle's engine and major components, and also to lengthen the life of your vehicle, especially the older your vehicle is and if it's considered a "high mileage" vehicle. I'm no mechanic but I grew up in a family of mechanics and do know a few things about vehicles. Hope this helps!

I have a dryer that is vibrating quite a bit. It has been vibrating at least some for a while because it put a hole in my linoleum I moved the drver, made sure it was level and currently have put heavy...

Your problem sounds like drum rollers have flat spots on them or in need of lubrication.
If you have a front loading machine,

Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer.
Be REAL CAREFUL not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch. Then remove the top of the dryer.
Remove the front of the dryer. This will expose the drum and belt. Remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm pulley and motor.
Now is a good time to check the belt to see if it has slipped off of the idler arm pulley and also to check the belt condition for wear.
Be sure to note the route of the belt, this will come in handy when you go to reinstall the belt.
Check your drum rollers for flat spots or wear, if they have flat spots or wear on them replace them.
If the drum rollers don't have flat spots or wear on them then they probably only need lubrication. Lubricate the shaft of the rollers with a good grade of machine oil such as 3 in One oil. Reassemble the dryer, plug back in. This should solve your noise problem.

Have a 99 model....been setting awhile and I just put a new battery on and was looking at the oil window and looks like I need to add some....lost my manual...what kind of oil should I use.

Remember to stand the bike upright before checking the oil level, if oil is needed you should speak to the shop who did your last service. Ask them the grade of oil they use as a standard, purchase some new oil and top up as nessesary. If you did the service yourself and you can't remember the type and grade of oil you used, it would be best to change it and enter the details into the service book. Remember to always check the oil level standing upright as the oil level on the side stand will be totally different.

HP-2004 work for 2.5L and 4.0L

Manual Transmission
The level of lubricant in the transmission should be maintained at the filler hole on all manual transmissions. This hole is on the right side. When you check the level in the transmission, make sure that the vehicle is level so that you get a true reading. When you remove the filler plug, lubricant should run out of the hole. Replace the plug quickly for a minimum loss of lubricant. If lubricant does not run out of the hole when the plug is removed, lubricant should be added until it does. Replace the plug as soon as the lubricant reaches the level of the hole.


Fig. 1: Manual transmission fill and drain hole plugs

Remove the drain plug which is at the bottom of the transmission. Allow all the lubricant to run out before replacing the plug. Replace the case with the correct viscosity oil. All manual transmissions use SAE 75W-90 API quality Grade GL-5 gear lubricant. Tighten the fill hole plug to 27 ft. lbs. (37 Nm).

I hope help you with this (rermember rated this help) Good luck.
