Depending on the Age of your 360 , the one with the 3 Rings ; or as known in the trade as 3 RROD, microsoft supplied it with an extra 3 year warranty ontop of the date it was purchased but this fault is common and its down to an overheating issue on the xbox's that when the boards reach high operating temperatures and cool down again constantly , the board is contracting and expanding thus , loosening the pins of the CPU and or GPU chips

and the one that has 4 red lights is indicating either your AV Cable isnt connected properly or has developed a fault , or the GPU Chip inside the console has become faulty due

hope this helps

Wats d gap in rings and n how many kms does the engine has to run

A general rule of thumb for ring gap is .003 " per 1" of bore. Example 4" bore minimum gap at bottom of cylinder for the ring is .012". IF fitting new rings then push the ring to the bottom of the bore ( smallest dia.) and measure the gap . nothing under .010". Max ring gap at this point should not exceed m.025" and if the gap exceeds this then the sides of the rings will have sharp edges from wearing on the piston lands.. The distance travelled depends on the service interval and the air cleaner being used as a dusted motor will need new rings within 15.000miles. and a well serviced motor can exceed 150.000miles before the rings need replacing

When i play xboxlive it will freez then the screen will be green or red then i have to turn my xbox help

If this is what happens each time you use your your console, it might be broken. Does it have any red rings around the console's display? If that's the case, check out these links by Microsoft corresponding to the amount of red rings on your console:
1 red ring
2 red rings
3 red rings
4 red rings

They extended the warranty to three years from the purchase date for the three rings. Give them a call at 1-800-4MYXBOX and see if they can't help solve your problem. Hopefully you're still under warranty. Good Luck!

It always haves four red rings

4 red rings is a problem with your AV cable its either faulty or damaged try removing it and see if the lights go away altho sometimes if there is no av cable it still dispalys 4 red lights, if that doesnt work its the ANA chip has died or has lifted off the board
