Ive replaced 3 toilet fill valve with 440a Fluid master fill valves height is good water level good.After a while it sounds like there is leak by from all toilet.Flappers have been replaced. What coul

check the overflow pipe in the cistern tank as some fill valves do not stop completely but allow input of water after the noise has stopped. This allows the water level to rise up and the water to flow out into the toilet bowl. Reduce the water level height by adjusting the cut off level and when the water rises past the new level the increase pressure on the valve will shut it off.

I have a Toyota Corolla NZE 2001 and I have trouble filling my tank. It fills for 3 or 4 seconds at a time before clicking off and I have to change the angle of the nozzle several times, pull it further...

Do you have an engine light on? Sounds like the tank isnt venting properly, if you can peak under the car near the gas filler neck, check for a small pipe/hose going to the top of the neck, check for corrosion or anything odd and start with that.

My Campbell Hausfeld compressor is brand new and runs and runs without building up pressure.

It sounds like you have a leak , you need to find where it's leaking.

But first things first - you said it's brand new , I am assuming you filled the pump with the proper amount of oil before running it.

Second thing is for the first run per the book you are to open the drain plug (bottom of tank) and run it for one hour. This is to break in your pumps rings under a no load condition.

I would then let it cool off for an hour or so , re-check the oil level , close the drain and let it pump up to fill the tank. If it is not building pressure check the drain plug , the unloader valve, fill pipe (the pipe from pump to tank) and fittings for leaks.

I am sure you have placed a female quick connect on the regulator so be sure it is not leaking also.

Good luck !

I can't fill the tank. The nozzle keeps clicking off.

the fill vent is inside the fill tube . your fill is 2 inch and inside it is a 3/4 inch that your gas goes down it runs from the filler neck to the 3/4 mark inside the tank your vent is the area between the outside if the inside tube and the inside of the outside tube . and vents through the gas pump nozzle ... gm has a problem with there trucks where the inside fill tube gets kinked after a while and kicks off the pump . i have never seen anyone fix this problem and have it work for long . i have a 2003 chevy truck same problem have to fill real slow . pulled tank , checked all lines changed fill neck ( flapper door in fill neck bad ) .... put it back . same problem . good luck . i gave up
