It should eventually purge just by running. If it continues, you could have a suction leak in your piping. Check drain plugs in pump. Check strainer basket cover and gasket for leaks. Check any control valves for leaks, Check the multiport valves for leaks. If the basket was ever out of the pump, some item may be bouncing around inside also.

Throttle position sensor noisy

Are you sure it's not the idle air valve as they can sound louder after changing to a high flow filter...take the filter off and shine a light in the intake when turning the ignition on and off. The idle valve is just inside the intake in a hole at the top...see if it moves in time with the noise that you hear

My R15 has issues on performance. I tried getting top speed last week and no matter how hard i push the throttle the speed what i get is 109kmph at top gear. Earlier i used to get 110 to 120 with ease....

It is very difficult to tell if the air filter is blocked by just looking at it. You should follow the servicing schedule that Yamaha suggest, change the filters when Yamaha suggest, a blocked air filter may give the symptoms you have experienced.

How to remove the filter in a GE air conditioner?

1 Look for a tab on the top, right side or near the bottom of the front grille. The tab protrudes slightly from the grille.

2 Pull the tab with your fingers and remove the filter from the Hotpoint air conditioner. The tab is part of the air filter.

3 Insert a new air filter in the air conditioner until you hear the plastic part of the filter click into place.

4 Lift the bottom of the front grille up and out if the filter is not visible. Unclip the top of the front grille and pull it away from the air conditioner. Look for the tab to the air filter in the small cavity near the top front of the Hotpoint air conditioner.

5 Pull the tab and remove the filter. Insert a new filter and snap the front grille back in place.

05 f-250 will not start

I sometimes get an air lock. Loosen the cap on the filter housing on top of the engine. You may hear a hissing noise that sounds like air escaping. When you have the cap off turn the key on for a few seconds.( DO NOT CRANK THE ENGINE) This will fill the fuel bowl. Put the lid back on and try to start again. You may have to do this a couple times but it does get air locked at times. Wash off the excess fuel that may splash out before starting the engine.

I have mucuni flat top sliders smooth bore they rattle when idling is that normal

If you can hear your Mikuni carbs "rattling" evidently you have changed the air box on your bike. The stock air box does two things, filter the air going into your engine and quieten intake noise. If you've changed or modified your air box in order to get better performance, you'll have to learn to live with more intake noise. The "rattle" you hear is really not a rattle. It is the "intake pulse" of each piston sucking air into the cylinder. Even at idle speeds, it does this so fast at to make it sound like a rattle. At higher speeds, it's so fast that you can't hear it most of the time. If the bike is idling at 1000 RPM, envision the piston moving up and down in the cylinder 1000 times a minute or 16 times a second. Every other time is an intake stroke, 8 times a second.

Replacing air filter

Look to see if there are any hoses that may disconnected from the air cleaner housing. One hose has exhaust running thru it, and, if it is loose, you will get this noise in the car.

Under Counter Water Filter Leaking after Use Sometimes!

Got it! Your return line is clogged!

I have the same dispenser, and there are 3 tubes attached to it. One of them (black on mine) goes from the faucet to the drain pipe coming down from the sink. That line can get clogged over time with stuff coming out of your sink. You can probably disconnect that line at the drain pipe end and **** oput the connection and as much of the hose as you can get too., Reattach the line and you are done. Fire it up.

On my unit, we hear a dripping sound in the drain when the unit is charging. If you don't hear the dripping sound after using the unit, that line is probably clogged up!

See ya!
