check air filter and also clean out the idle valve also check the breather pipes coming off the cam cover. one goes to the intake pipe and one goes to the bottom off the intake chamber thin one that will be block for definite as they do. on the back of the engine there is a black pipe coming off the cam cover and goes to a metal pipe take that off clean out the ends and you will need somthing like a long metal bit of strip and put a hook on the end push that down the hole and lift out the burnt oil push down until when it comes out there is oil on the end. then that end is clear then. on the thine pipe off the cam cover you need to clean the pipe out and this is the difficult bit the part were it fits to the intake you need to clean that out it is hard to get to but you can do it without having to take it all apart. when clean and putting back together i used an inline fuel filter on this line and it stops it clogging up the line. when all clean out and put back together and check that it blows out the oil cap and not sucks engine should be fine after this. I have had to do this one time on mine ecotec engine did it 6 years back and is still nice and clear run for a few days then change the engine oil and filter. jobs done.

Circulating rod in my Kenmore icemaker is was frozen up. I broke all the ice and saw that the rod had came out of the plastic piece in the end cap. How do I get the metal circulating rod back in the p


You have to take the access to the water off the back of the unit that will free up space needed to slip the rod back in. It is probably leaking and you need also to put a new seal back in before you put it back together.

I recently bought an Amloid My First Mini Cycle for my son. I was only given on packet of assembly intructions for the fork and front wheel of the cycle. Once you put that together the instructions say...


You need to hammer the cap on. The tube with open ends fits over the cap and lets you hammer it on. To make it work, you need something to hold the other end, like a block of wood, or I found a hockey puck worked perfectly. Assemble the rear wheels, then turn the cycle on its side with the cap end of the axle down. Put it on the block of wood or the puck, and then hammer on the cap with the help of the tube. Now if you can help me get the handlebars on, I'd be eternally grateful. Problem is the spacers seem to be too big to allow the fork into the slot in the handlebars, and without them, there is nothing to screw into to hold the handlebars.

Puch rod come off roker arm


Usually there is a reason why the rocker arm came off the push rod so you will need to check a few things before putting it back together. First make sure the push rod is not bent, if it is replace it, do not try to straighten it. Make sure the rocker arm stud did not loosen, if it did back out, re-tighten. If you're ready to put it back together, you will need to set the valve clearance between the rocker arm and the push rod. You will need to know the engine model number to get this clearance since it varies. Once you get the clearance values, make sure the piston is at TDC on a compression stroke and adjust the valves per the setting. In some rare instances, the valve can "stick" in the valve guide and this will cause excessive gap. However, usually when this occurs the engine will not start anyway. Hope this gets you in the right direction.

Machanic said may have loose tie rods on my 99 toyota corolla how can i tell and how do i fix, also how do i chang a o2 censer, does it uscrew and u just plug in new one and screw back in or do i need...


to check the tie rods you jack up the front of the car. Place your hands at the 9 and 3 o'clock positions on the tire. Push/pull on the tire. If you feel movement than look carefully at the out tie rod while you push or pull and see if it moves. If it does it is bad if it doesn't than the inner toe rod is bad. PYou will not be able to do the inner tie rod without some specialty tools.

The outer tie rods can be replaced by removing the tire, loosen the jam nut that holds the inner tie rod tight to the outer tie rod, removing the cotter pin (if it has one) from the tie rod end, remove the nut that secures the tie rod end to the knuckle, Hit the knuckle with a hammer where the tie rod goes through the knuckle until the tie rod comes loose from the knuckle (do not strike the tie rod end), remove the tie rod end from the knuckle and unscrew from inner tie rod counting the number of turns it takes to remove, install the new one using the same amount of turns.

After putting it back together you'll need to grease the new tie rod ends if equipped with grease zerks and have the car aligned.

The O2 sensor unthreads from the exhaust manifold as you thought. It will require an O2 socket which is a 7/8" socket with an opening down the side for the wiring harness to go through. you should be able to purchase the socket from the parts store that you purchase the O2 sensor at. DO NOT GET A UNIVERSAL FIT OR CHEAP AFTERMARKET BRAND, this will cause more problems and more money than just getting a good quality sensor from a reputable supplier or straight from the dealer.

I can only get crushed Ice when the Cube Button is pushed. it seem the Cube Buton has failed. What can I do to solve this problem


Pretty easy fix if you are somewhat handy with a screw driver. Remove the tray holding ice, on the side of that tray should be a metal rod that activates the crushed/cubed function. There is a motor on that activates a lever that will push the end of the rod down or pull it up depending on what you have selected.

Motor could have been frozen, since it is in the freezer, but you need to remove the mounting bracket and spiral rod assembly. To remove this there are two small bolts on the bottom of that bracket, remove those and lift up on the entire bracket assembly. This will remove from the mounting bracket at rear of freezer. Now for the hard part, you need to unplug the wire connection that runs into the back of the freezer. There are two plastic clips on each side of that connector. You need to push the top of those clips on both sides and pull the connector apart. All at the same time. The wire also is connected to the ice maker itself, so you also need to disconnect that connector, much easier to disconnect that, squeeze the clips on each side and pull apart.

Now you should be able to remove the entire ice tray and spiral gear assembly. Be careful as the light bulb is on the bottom back side and it is probably pretty hot as it has been on now for several minutes while you were trying to get all of this done. Now you need to take the back plastic cover off, by removing the two silver screws from the bottom rail. By removing the plastic cover you can gain access to the spiral gear motor and most importantly the cubed/crushed actuator motor. If it is anything like mine, it will be covered in ice crystals, let that melt or use a hair dryer to speed it up.

Once that is unfrozen, you should be able to move the metal rod (shaft) back and forth. There is a spring on the opposite end of the shaft from the motor and that will push or pull up the lever that in turn moves the rod to allow for cubes instead of crushed ice.

Once you have that shaft moving freely, reassemble the unit by replacing the rear cover with the two metal screws and place the assembly back in the freezer. Plug the harness back into the connector, it only fits on the female end one way, but you can look at the orientation of the round holes and square holes and get it lined up correctly. It goes together much easier than it came apart. The light bulb will turn back on once you have it connected correctly, don't forget to also connect pigtail connector to the ice maker itself. Now if you hold the door open/closed switch in and push the ice dispenser lever on front of door, you should see the motor push down the actuator that in turn will push down the end of the brass rod which then opens the latch at the dispenser end to allow cubed ice with out going through the crusher.
Make sure you have the cubed button on front activated before you test this. You will not see any difference by just pushing the cubed or crushed buttons on the front of freezer. You will only see a difference in that actuator once the ice dispenser lever is pushed. As long as that is working, make sure to replace the two metal bolts on the bottom of the mounting bracket. Replace the ice tray and enjoy your cubed ice. Hope this helps

Cleaning solution will not come out when trigger squeezed. What could be the source of the problem.


1.make sure that the sol tank is in there correctly. 2. when putting the machine together, the upper handle assembly goes on but you have to screw it down, if it is screwed down, the only thing that is left is the pump assembly that the guide rod hits. the rod hits this button inside of the machine and sometimes this gets jamed or all together stops working. the cause for this is usually from putting the wrong sol in the machine. hope this helps

Jeep cherokee with a 4.0 6 cyl when a start the motor cold it sounds like a diesel engine, lots of clanking. last a couple of seconds then goes away. replaced oil pump. no help there.


Lots of clanking when first started sounds like a worn rod bearing. Check the engine compartment and rev engine to listen for knocking. It will get progressively worse as time goes by. Nothing to do except buy/install new crankshaft kit from autozone, about $300+.

In the mean time, just change oil and put in some oil additive to lessen the knocking. High speeds will accelerate the wear of the rod bearing. The rod bearing is installed inside of the piston rod. This bearing goes around the crankshaft. It has very tight tolerances down to the thousands of an inch. When it gets worn, metal will flake off of the soft bearing material and contaminate your oil more. If you catch it early enough, you can replace the bearing without too much trouble. Here is what you need to do.

Find the bad bearing. If you hear the knocking with the engine on and under the hood, disconnect a sparkplug. If the knocking goes away, that is the bad bearing. Do this disconnecting/reconnecting until you identify the bad bearings. Now disconnect battery. Next loosen drive belt- done from steering pump. Loosen 2-13mm bolts on back, one on top and one on bracket on bottom. On bottom right-hand side of pump will be a long adjusting bolt. Loosen turn this bolt counter clockwise to loosen drive belt. Now jack vehicle from the frame, vehicle will raise but tires will remain on ground. keep going as high as your jack will go. Install jack stands on frame. This extends your suspension and keep body raised. Drain oil, remove steering damper. It's the shock absorber looking thing connected to your tie rods/center link. The easiest way to remove the oil pan is to get a 3/8 inch socket adapter for a cordless drill. The bolts will come out in a hurry if you do this. Keep track of where the double sided bolts are, they secure the fuel line brackets. After all are removed, wiggle, tug, and pull pan out. Now you will see the large main caps and the rod caps. The mains are bolted to the block and the rods will rotate up and down with the spinning of the crankshaft. Spin the crankshaft to see. Each bearing cap needs to be marked. Use a center punch and hammer to mark from front to rear. 1 mark for rod cap 1 and so forth. You should end up with 6 marks on rod cap #6. Do the marking on the front side of the cap so you know how it fits back. Remove the rod caps that corresponded to the bad bearing identified earlier. Remove nut on cap. Wiggle cap back and forth until it comes loose. It will eventually come out. Inside the cap, you will see the bearing. It is basically a liner for the cap that rides on the crankshaft. there is one on the top of the rod too. Remove it by pushing rod up into cylinder and pulling it out with your hand. Ensure you remember the orientation of the bearings. One side has a notch, the other has a key that fits into a hole on the rod. Now you have the bearing in hand, check for scoring, or wearing on the face. Check the web for a nice color picture. Feel the crankshaft bearing area with your finger nail. It should be smooth and not ridged. Purchase some plastigage along with a standard .000 bearing. Clean rod surface, install new bearing and plastigage. Tighten to torque. Remove cap and measure plastigage for your oil clearance. Now you can purchase the correct bearing to match your oil clearance. If you don't have a repair manual, now's a good time to get it. It has bearing tolerances for you to get the correct bearing. After you have the correct bearings, use oil additive to grease up the new bearing/crank surfaces. Put everything back together, put some quality magnets inside of your oil pan near the drain hole and cross your fingers.
