If you are smelling gas, do not try lighting anything until you figure out what is leaking. Spray soapy water on everything to pinpoint the hiss sound. The tank valve should have a rubber gasket inside it that seals against your black plastic female hose end fitting when you hook it up. It will not seal if it is missing. If that is the problem, take the tank back where you filled it or exchanged it. Douglas

How do I replace a windshield washer nozzle on my 2005 equinox (front)

In a nutshell, the process to replace the washer nozzles is,
1. Remove Wiper Arms
2. Remove the Air Inlet Grill
3. Release the nozzles from the inside of the Air Inlet Grill assembly
4. Install in reverse order

The wiper arms are each held in place with a single nut. Try to resist the temptation to pry the arm away from the shaft, gentle wiggling should suffice to get them free once the nuts are off.
When installing the arms that should have been removed while the wipers were in their parked position, line the end of the wiper to the little dots in the bottom blackout strip of the glass. Use a flashlight to see those dots under the glass. After replacing the nuts, torque the nuts to 21 foot pounds.

The Passenger side of the Air Inlet Grill is the cover access for the cabin air filter. If you've never changed that filter before, this would be a good time. It's probably pretty bad after some 10 years. There are 5 reusable plastic fasteners holding that cover down. There are 2 more on the far drivers side of the Air Inlet Grill. Carefully pry the center tab up to release tension on the fastener, then pull the whole fastener out. If the fastener comes apart, it's easy to reassemble in the center backed out position in preparation for reassembly.

The Washer Nozzles have compress to release clips accessed from inside the Air Inlet Grill assembly. Attempting to remove these from the outside will only damage the Air Inlet Grill. Replace and snap the new nozzle in place, before starting the reassembly steps.

Best of luck. I think a person with a reasonably talented set of hands should be able to do all of this, but don't rush.

Clogged pressure washer nozzle

Some of those adjustable nozzles are made with a removable orifice. If you look close, it is basically a small set-screw with a hole in it (for the spray orifice). I am not sure what size you need, but they are always metric, "allen" style "screw/orifice". If this is the case, go anywhere that sells sowing supplies and buy a long, slender needle. This is the only thing I've found that is really strong and small enough. Use the needle to dig or force the blockage out.

If your spray nozzle is not made with a removable orifice, you just have to take the nozzle off of the lance and use your needle to dig or push the blockage out. Generally, you have to push (and dig) and it has to come out the way it came in (and that is why you have to take the nozzle off the lance). Be sure to rinse the nozzle out good why you get the orifice unblocked -- or it will just block it again.

While you are working on it, you should be worried about where any debris came from to block the nozzle in the first place. The system is supposed to be closed. If you are running it without a screened inlet or a water filter of some kind, you better fix that. If a piece of debris the right size goes into the system, it can get hung in a poppet valve which is a little harder to work on -- AND -- can damage various parts of the pump.

I hope this is helpful to you. If yes, please take a sec to rate me. Thanks!

I have a weber genesis grill. just refilled the tank and connected it. this afternoon my wife smelled gas near the unlit grill. There was also an intermittent hissing sound. could the heat of day 90 plus...

seems like I can always smell a little gas on a freshly filled tank until I use it down a little bit. Also there is a bleed off screw on the valve of the tank Make sure it is tightly closed

The Blazer micro torch does not ignite (no hissing sound for the gas either) and we did fill it with butane? Any suggestions - have had it for awhile - maybe it needs new flint? or whatever ignites it....

Hi. Get a piece of very fine wire, hardware store is a good source, and run it into the nozzle. Chances are that the nozzle is clogged. Once it is hissing again it will ignite unless you also need a new flint. J.
