SOURCE: garage door will not open or close

I had the same problem, mine was just the white Sprocket assembly, it stands straight up, there is another one which is the Worm gear, mine was fine. I read on some other post, when you take off the panel, and if you see a lot of white dust (shredded white plastic) then its the gear. Went to Sears warehouse, had the part in stock and replaced it myself. Had to just unbolt the Sprocket assembly from inside (3 bolts), pull out from the top, a little hassel, but got it done. Follow the instructions and you will be fine. Remember after greasing up the sprocket like it says too, take the time to use some silcone spray on the springs and rollers, a lot of people forget to do this, even me...

SOURCE: thumping noise in front drivers side wheel and

Check your suspension bar and check your front strut assembly, jack up the side you here the noise on and pry against the tire to see if you have any movement between the strut housing and the frame, make sure the top strut nuts are tight, if they are next check tie rod ends to see if you have any play, next pull the wheel from the top and bottom to see if it's loose if it is watch while someone else wiggles the tire, you could have a tie rod loose or a king pin loose. Also it could be a wheel-bearing nut. Let me know what you find so I can tell you how to replace it.

SOURCE: washer wont spin just makes whining noise

The drum bearing, belt pulley and transmission must be inspected and eventually repaired. You may need to call an engineer to fix the problem.

Alaska Railroad #71 Problem

Before disassembling check the brushes (metal contacts) are making good contact with the loco wheels and are not blocked with fluff etc. Ensure the loco wheels are clean and shiny so that they pick up the track voltage ok. The brushes are made of sprung metal and transfer the voltage from the wheels via the track to the motor. Check that as well as clean and fluff free that they also have a strong springiness against the wheels for good electrical contact. If these appear ok then remove the loco bodywork and check the motor. You can apply a 12v supply directly to the motor contacts to test if it's running ok. If it does run ok then suspect the brushes and associated connections. If it does not run try moving the motor armature manually. If it is stuck it is probably time to replace it. If it moves apply a light machine oil and test again.

Railroad tycoon restarts computer while playing

Hello there,

Usually this happens when the computer is compatible to run the game but not compatible to keep it playing,,, meaning that the computer can execute the game (get it started) but fails to keep it going. The cause of this problem is the graphics adapter so a new graphics card will solve this problem, and remember when buying a graphics card make sure you buy one that is better than the one the game requires.

I hope i solved your problem.

Try running the game in Compatibility mode. Right click on the game icon, go to Compatibility at the top, then check the box that says "Run in compatibility mode". Then select the compatibility mode for the reccomended operating system for the game.

1988 Jeep Wrangler Automatic Trans

Most likely it could be a vaccum prob. With the engine running spray windex or soap and water on the lines to check for leaks. If bobbles appear then replace the hoses. There could also be a electric problem.
How warm are you talking about. Normal? Very hot?
