Loose drivers side seat on 1998 acura

if you look , you'd have seen them.
but id bet it not the bolts. but do look
what you do is look at the track.
the track has 2 parts. bottom and top
if you wiggle the seat and the :
bottom wiggles with top , the base is loose.
if the top and bottom tracks , only move there, the track is bad.
there is no visual play at track juncture. so..... if there is, its bad.
if the base and track dont move the seat frame is cracked.
sounds hard, no,
its a 10 second job, you look and see what is loose.

now my wild useless guess.
the someone removed the seat, and its on back on track.
or as my fat boss did, broke the seat frame.

The porcelain spark plugs keep on cracking when the car is being used

Is the porcelain "cracking" or are they getting "carbon-tracked"? (see example photo of carbon-tracked plug below).
It is common for carbon-tracking to occur if your original plugs were carbon-tracked and you replace the plugs without replacing the wires. If the plug is carbon-tracked, the boots on the wires or the coil boots (coil-on-plug ignition) are also carbon-tracked. If you do not replace the wires or the coil boots, the ignition will still misfire by following the carbon-track on the inside of the boot. This will cause your new plugs to also be carbon-tracked within a short period of time (days or weeks).

There is no reason I can think of for the porcelain itself to actually crack other than faulty installation techniques or possibly, cold liquids getting poured on extremely hot plugs.

F1 display flashing?

Flashing wrench means a fault code has been triggered.
F1 is the fault code when flood switch at base of dishwasher cabinet turns on.

This can occur due to several reasons when moisture gets to the base of the drawer cabinet.

You will have to turn the power off and extend the drawer out as much as possible to expose the back of the cabinet. Take towels and a hair dryer to dry the base. Once the flood switch gets dry the problem will go away.

The main thing is why did the water get there. You could have a crack in the hose or simply the detergent may have caused too much foam.

Flash does not work on my Nikon D 80

My D80 had the same problem, I took it apart by first removing the base (make SURE you track which screw goes in which hole!), then remove the front shell (around the lens mount) but first remove the A/M lever by prying the cover off and unscrew it- pop the flash to remove the two small screws at the front of the flash rest point. Still keeping track of the screws? Now remove the screws holding the sides, you do not need to remove the battery side (it has another screw holding in deep inside the battery well). Now you can remove the rear shell - watch the flat ribbon cable, it is released by gently prying up on the thin black bit of plastic on the connector - I did say GENTLY. Now remove the side cover on the left (rear view). Check the tiny wires that are loop around the top from front to rear - I found one was broken. Find someone very good at soldering and solder it back. Now reassemble - you DID track which screw went in which hole? I also recommend that you photograph each screw removal and measure the length of the screws (mm - 4, 5, 6, & 8mm).

I too a bunch of pictures and am considering a take-apart page, but rather busy right now...

It is easy to break ribbon cables - be careful!

Minn Kota 24v auto pilot. will track correctly

Usually this means that there is a crack in the coil cord or there is something metal close to the head of the motor.
The coil cord can be checked while you are out fishing next time by grabbing the cord (black coiled cord from base to head of the motor) and stretching it and pulling on it. If the motor reacts to the pulling then that's the problem.
best of luck!

Problem with technics SL-L20 linear tracking turntable

Not sure what your question is? Linear tracking turntables also have an assortment of gears and pulleys which make it function correctly. Sometimes the drive belt will break, other times, the gears will crack. You will have to open her up, and take a look inside to see if there are any components which are damaged. There may also be grease applied to the gears, which might also be preventing it from moving properly.
