If you have well water, you might have a lot of sediment. That will cause the O-rings not to seat correctly.

Try cleaning where the water filter connections are. Use vinegar soap and water mix. That will break down lime scale and other sediments quickly.

    Then your cartridge socket could damaged. It may need replacing. When you take the cartridge out when it is leaking, inspect the O-rings on the filter. Look for cuts or chunks missing.

    If the O-rings are okay then check your water pressure regulator. It should be where the water main comes in the house. It may be set too high of pressure. If this is the case it is bad for more then just your fridge filter. It can damage other plumbing in your home. Over time, over pressure can deform the o-rings. If this is not corrected, it may do permanent damage to the filter socket.

    As far as being on rural water. You may still have sediment in the water. Town water only requires to be under a specific level, not free of sediment. The only way to really tell if there is sediment build up is to let the parts dry out. You will see a white film develop. But it is more likely that either your water filter socket is damaged in which case replacement parts are available, and or your water pressure into your house is too high.

    Water pressure should be 60 psi or under.

Hello B Proctor,

Your catalytic converter has collapsed into itself... else check if you have a separate muffler there...

Check your on-line prices a rockauto...

Then take it to the muffler shop... or get that penetrating oil & get started...

Power steering leak on 2003 CHEVY impala V6 3.8


When a power steering pump begins to fail, it's best to replace the pump and both pressure and return hoses to this system.
Recommend you replace this as soon as possible because it could eventually cause damage to your steering rack and pinion.

Truck hesitates & stalls


Check for leaking valve cover gaskets,next to the spark plugs, putting oil near the ign coils. You absolutely have to scan the veh for codes and look at all the sensor values etc. Including putting an oscilloscope on all sensors. The Throttle Position Sensor is a possible and I could go on. Now,do not throw parts at it. Never replace anything just because of a code that is set. Codes do not mean a bad part, just an out of range sensor etc over a number of drive cycles. You have to spend lots of time and if you do not have the up to date knowledge on todays veh systems your done before you start. Don't mean to be hurtful but very few people can solve these issues including half the auto repair industry because there is no training for the most part and no one understands basic electricity or electronics. Todays vehicle are not just mechanical alone as back in the 1960's

How do I tune up my 2004 GA?? It has 40,000 miles... what all needs to be changed/checked?


You need to go to a dealer or a certified mechanic. If you don't know already. Usually these will be the things you have to purchase, plugs, wires, air filter, fuel filter, oil filter & oil, you will need to flush the radiator and the transmission.
