It seems like all the home depots L108 engines are blowing up from a lack of proper oiling. Is there a way to fix mine before this happens?

The only ones I seen blow up were do to oil galley plugs coming out of rod journal on crank.On both machines the warranty was over but our John Deere dealer rep got us free replacements through Briggs.The only way to correct it before it goes is to pull engine,then crank and re-install plug.Not really worth having shop do it cause the crank would have to be removed to gain access to plug on top side of journal,you can save $$$ if you do it yourself.

Oil light on even with oil level correct, now engine making a rattling noise, live in Spain need help. A6 Avanti 2002

The light is on because of oil pressure being low in the engine, do not drive this until the source of this low pressure is corrected. The noise you hear is engine parts lacking proper lubrication. Have this fixed ASAP or you will destroy the engines bearings, a $4000.00 repair on this car.

Husky 2600 pressure washer with honda gcv160 engine. engine won't run with choke off.

I bought mine at Home Depot, the pump failed after about 8 hours of use then Home Depot agreed to replace it now it failed again after aabout 10 hours of use. This is a piece of crap and Home Depot should be ashamed for selling this junk. I am sure they are in with Husky and making big dollars on a crappy product. My machine is like brand new just will not work. Now the carb has to be replaced only after less than 20 hours.

I have had a Hampton Bay Antigua Plus 56'' ceiling fan for about four years now. The blades have sagged so much that now I cannot even put the globe over the lights. I only want to know if there is any way...

Try not to take that person serious. I would tighten the screws on the brackets around the fan. Only a phillips screw driver needed for this task. The blades on mine are hardened
However, the problem I have is with finding a replacement bracket:
I found that Hampton Bay is a wholly owned subsidiary of Home Depot (look it up). That being said, I contacted Home Depot and the associate had no protocol in getting me in a better direction.
The problem I have is the lacking of integrity shown by Home Depot in this particular situation. I knew nothing about Hampton Bay ceiling fans being that of a subsidiary onto Home Depot. I am a potential customer to the Depot but, will attempt to research all methods possible to save myself an unnecessary trip to flirt with possibility of a non-fitting universal bracket. BALLS!!!

Oil draining out from engine

It sounds like they did not tighten the oil filter properly. There is a by pass valve in the oil filter housing to allow oil to flow though just in case if the oil filter is plugged up with dirty from lack of oil change. Good luck and hope this help and what was the oil pressure reading on your dash gauge. Over tightening the oil filter can cause the o-ring to leak, as to not having the filter on tight enough.

Blowing oil and smoke

When overfilled, how long before the level was drained back to normal, or was it? The problem with overfilling, is that the oil will 'foam' and not lubricate properly. This can result in serious engine damage. So, make sure it's at the proper level now, if it is, I believe the engine was damaged due to lack of proper lubrication. Wish I had better news. Good luck.

93 2wd st/wagon ,head gaket going,,Is it ok to drive the car 500ks by tightning the head down ,just to bring the car back home for gasket replacement.

It isn't recommended, but you should be able to do it. First of all since you said the head gasket is going I assume the engine runs half way decent. Also tightening the head may help a little but not much. Are you sure the head gasket is blown? Because you could also have a cracked cylinder head or engine block. If coolant is getting into the oil, the oil will lose its ability to lubricate the engine. If coolant is getting into the oil I would recommend taking along with you everything you need to do an oil change. And do an oil change every 100ks (I'm assuming kilometers). I won't need to change the oil filter, just the oil. You would want to bring the proper wrench for the drain plug, an oil pan, a funnel, a container to hold used oil, and of coarse the new oil. This may seem like a headache but if you don't and the engine seizes up half way home due to lack of lubrication, you can imagine what kind of headache that will be. Also if the head gasket is "going", it might go completely during the trip and the engine wont be able run, especially if its blown between two adjacent cylinders which is where they usually blow.
