What is the function of motivation of lubricating oil?


1: the lubrication oil supply continuously the friction surface of each part,forming a lubricating oil film, reduce the parts of the friction, wear and power consumption.
2 cooling effect: the lubricating oil flows through the part surface can absorb the heat and the heat back into the oil pan scattered into the atmosphere,plays the role of cooling.
3 clean: lubrication system through the lubrication oil flow, the parts of the surface of the abrasive washing down, back to the crankcase.
The 4 seal: seal the gap between the cylinder wall and piston, piston ring and ring groove.
5 anti corrosion: to prevent or reduce the component corrosion and chemicalcorrosion.
6 when the engine cylinder pressure rise sharply, suddenly increasing the piston, connecting rod and a shaft bearing load, the load of the transferlubricated bearings, the impact load to bear the receive buffer

Hi Seijj, It sounds to me as though alignment is your problem. Disconnect the regulator and other mechanisms from the window and operate the movement by hand to find out where its sticking or becoming tight. When you do rectify that problem and reassemble. Regards John

Im gonna rplace the fuel pressure regulator. In the haynes manuel it says that you need to remove the fuel rail. Ive asked a few people and they said they dont think it is necassary it is an 03 impala. ...


Not sure why Haynes says to do that. below is instructions from autozone.com, and none of the engines require the fuel rail to come off. That said, if you have the 3.4, you may need to pull the upper intake manifold.


Removal & Installation The need to work as cleanly as possible cannot be over-emphasized. Even the smallest amount of dirt, if allowed into the fuel pressure regulator and/or the fuel rail, will find its way to the fuel injectors. The nozzle openings of the injectors are very small. Keep hands and tools clean. Clean the areas to be disconnected with a suitable solvent. Carefully cover open fittings and connections to keep out foreign material. Dirt in the injectors almost guarantees a clogged fuel injector and engine performance problems.

3.4L (VIN E) Engines

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Relieve the fuel system pressure.
  3. Remove the upper intake manifold assembly.
  4. Disconnect the vacuum line from the pressure regulator.
  5. Remove the regulator retaining screw and remove the retainer bracket. Using a clean shop cloth to catch fuel spillage, carefully pull the regulator from the fuel rail. Twist the regulator slightly while removing to ease removal. Discard the O-ring.

To install:
  1. Clean all parts well. DO NOT use shop compressed air to test or clean a fuel pressure regulator. Clean the fuel pressure regulator screen, if necessary. DO NOT immerse the fuel pressure regulator in a solvent bath or it will be damaged.
  2. If the filter screen has been contaminated, it should be removed and the pressure regulator replaced.
  3. Lubricate a new pressure regulator O-ring with clean engine oil and install on the regulator inlet.
  4. Install the fuel return pipe to the regulator.
  5. Install a new retainer and spacer bracket into the slot on the fuel rail and install the pressure regulator to the fuel rail. Tighten the fuel return line nut to 13 ft. lbs. (17 Nm).
  6. Connect the vacuum line to the pressure regulator and install the retainer screw. Tighten to 76 inch lbs. (8.5 Nm).
  7. Inspect and verify that the retainer and spacer bracket is engaged in the slots in the fuel rail. Grasp and pull on the regulator to ensure that it is properly seated.
  8. Install the upper intake manifold.
  9. Connect the negative battery cable.
  10. Inspect for leaks using the following procedure:
    1. Turn the ignition switch to the ON position for 2 seconds.
    2. Turn the ignition switch to the OFF position for 10 seconds.
    3. Turn the ignition switch to the ON position again.

How to change a fuel pressure regulator in a 1997 pontiac grand prix


GM Century/Lumina/Grand Prix/Intrigue 1997-2000
Fuel Pressure Regulator - Removal & Installing

The fuel pressure regulator is a diaphragm-operated relief valve with fuel pump pressure on one side and regulator spring pressure and intake manifold vacuum on the other side. The regulator's function is to maintain a constant fuel pressure across the injectors at all times. The pressure regulator compensates for engine load by increasing fuel pressure as engine vacuum drops.

The fuel pressure regulator is serviced as a separate component. When servicing the pressure regulator, make sure that the O-ring back-up, large O-ring, filter screen and small O-ring are properly positioned on the pressure regulator.

Don't have power to my front door windows.


Are you sure there is no power or is the problem that they just don't open? These vans have problems with sticking motors and windows. Mine stick all the time. One time, I took off the door panels, tested everything and there was both power to the motor and a functioning motor unit. I lubricated all the mechanisms and window channels and they worked properly for about two years. Lately they have begun to stick again. If I rock the window switch back and forth rapidly for about 10 seconds, they free up and function normally for about a week. If I'm wrong and you have metered out the plugs to discover no power, check the fuse.

My playstation 3 analog sticks are becoming more stiff and are sticking in every position except the centre, which causes major problems when trying to stay still in games.


Yeah my controller started sticking up and not centering properly when released. I tried everything to clean it up but nothing worked untill I went to the local electronics store and got some contact cleaner with lubricating oil. (MG Chemicals - Nu-trol contact cleaner with special lubrication oils) Open the controller ( see youtube) the analog sticks cannot be taken apart but if you push the stick up you can squirt the base and work the cleaner/lube into the base. I squirted a bit on all 4 sides (left, right, up , down) working it in making a circular motion with the stick. Worked quite well and is the only thing so far that works at all. These seem to be sealed units (the sticks) with no way to open the business end to clean up the contacts. I put a toothpick under the tracing sheet to help with evaporation of the cleaner. Hope this helps.
