    Are you using the right set-up or hole for the type of valve? (Presta or Schrader?)

Do you flip up the lever on the air outlet? It should be flat on the handle to insert on the valve stem and then flipped up to lock on.

I got a dodge Strauss 92 it blows cold air how do I flush the heater core I think that's the only thing it could be every thing else seems just fine thank you for any help zak

Locate the heater core of your vehicle by finding the two rubber hoses going into the firewall. Your heater core is inside the firewall, between the engine compartment and the cabin of the vehicle. Detach the two hoses from the heater core valve stems by loosening the spring clamps around the hoses with a screwdriver. Twist hoses back and forth carefully to remove from valve stems and move hoses out of the way.

Run water through one of the valve stems by turning on the garden hose and placing the end of the hose on the valve stem. Flush out the heater core this way until you see clear water coming from the other valve stem. Turn garden hose off.

Replace the two rubber hoses from the engine and secure to valve stems by tightening screw clamps with screwdriver. Be careful not to over-tighten.

Turn car engine on and turn on heater fan to test and verify that heater is working.

How to change tyre valve stem core

Sometimes you can start turning them out (they unscrew) with a tiny flat blade screwdriver. Or you can go to a parts store and buy a small package of tire valve caps that have the two small prongs for removing valve cores. Walmart probably has them, too.

Replacing cord on polaris 250 ATV ??

Park the Polaris ATV on level ground in an area with plenty of light. Allow the engine to cool if it is warm so that you don't burn yourself.Remove the four Phillips head screws from the corners of the metal cover that the cord is coming out of using the screwdriver. Pull the metal cover off the engine. Unwrap the cord from around the turn wheel completely.Spin the turn wheel using your hand until the nut securing the cord is at the top of the wheel facing you. Grab the metal stem on the cord with the pliers. Loosen and remove the nut using the box wrench. Hold the stem to keep the cord from turning as you loosen the nut.Pull the cord off the turn wheel and through the hole on the metal cover. Keep the nut just in case the new cord did not come with one. Insert the metal stem on the new cord into the hole on the metal cover. Insert the stem into the hole on the turn wheel.Tighten the nut onto the stem the opposite way than you removed it. Spin the turn wheel counterclockwise until you hear the spring lock into place. Wrap the new cord around the turn wheel. Make sure that the cord does not overlap itself. Replace the metal cover to the engine. Replace and tighten the screws to secure the cover to your Polaris's engine.

    I have a 2hp sprinkler pump that I am having trouble priming. I have 2 check valves on in the water by the intake and the other by the pump. It has take a few hours to get the water to the pump but still...

    1. You only should have one check valve; the one in the water is best, remove the other if you can.
    2. Make sure there are no leaks in any of the piping between the water and the pump inlet.
    3. Take the pump apart, thoroughly clean the new seal, the two halves of the pump that go under the metal band, the inside of the metal band.
    4. Lubricate the new seal, the outer sides of the pump halves where the metal band squeezes together, the inside of the metal band where it contacts the halves and even the screw on the tightening device using petroleum jelly (Vaseline) or equal. Make sure the pump literature does not recommend against whatever you use.
    5. Reassemble.
    6. Fill the pump with water, open the discharge on top of the pump if possible and prime.
    Normally, a pump, even with a long run will prime in 5 minutes or less.

    Write back.

    I can't get my Zefal pump to seal onto my Pestal tires. The pump head constantly pops off. Do I need to return the pump?

    If it is a dedicated presta pump, there should be a threaded cap on the head where it attaches to the valve stem - it has a hole through it to allow the stem through. Tighten that stem slightly and it should compress the rubber enough to hold on. But don't tighten too much or it will be hard to get off.

    The head holds on with a rubber donut under that cap. By tightening the cap, the donut gets compressed and closes the hole tighter.

    I bought the Danco replacement stem for a milwaukee faucet(part 4s-6h/c) it is leaking from the handle... do I need to replace the plastic part that runs back into the pipe? Is there an easy way to remove...

    Sometimes on the stems on the side the handle attaches is a nut that can be tightened. Inside this nut is a rubber or other type of seal. tightening this nut stops the water from coming out of the handle. If the nut has already been tightened then possibly need to replace this rubber seal.

    Plastic "Turbo Frother steam nozzle" blows off metal steam pipe

    Pull off entire plastic wand off by unscrewing the top plastic piece. Inside the piece that connects to the screw top you should see two o-ring type spacers. The top one should be hard pastic and the one beneath should be rubber. Take the entire unit apart and clean, making sure to put all pieces back in the way they came out.

    To put back on, take the top piece and put it back on the metal stem first then put the rest of the wand back on and gently push it as far up the metal stem as possible and screw back together. If you don't have the rubber spacer this could be the problem since the wand really has nothing grabbing onto the metal stem except for the rubber spacer. If this doesn't work, order another wand:

    If you're talking about the spark plugs, it's pretty easy. Follow the spark plug wires back to the cylinder heads. This will have a rubber cap on it, pull that off and you'll see a little metal stem. Use a 5/8" Sparkplug socket (deep well with a little rubber insert to protect the plug) and unthread it. After this, coat it with some spark plug thread sealer (it's in a little pack sold at the front counter of an auto parts store like Autozone). Put your new plugs in and tighten them down. Don't tighten too much, you just want them to be snug. Hope this helps.
