Hello gktweets,

Cleaning oil stains off of your driveway will require the right "products". However, if the oil stains are a heavy buildup then you will definately need to steamclean them off first.

What you will need to do is apply a sodium hydroxide based degreasing product (basically most types of degreasers) to the oil stains and let the product sit on the stains for a few days allowing for the degreaser to completely dry.

Then you will want to use a "hot" water pressure washer to steamclean the oil stains off. If you do not have a "hot" pressure washer then a cold water unit will work too just not as effectively.

If you do not have access to a pressure washer at all you should re-coat the oil stains with your degreasing product then scrub with a broom and rinse with a garden hose simultaneously.

After your driveway is completey dry and the oil stains are still minimally present you can apply a dry product known as Bio-Dry. They have videos posted up on you tube as how to purchase and apply the product.

This product will go to work on the leftover stain and will work "over-time" as far as lifting the stain out of your driveway.

You can see before and after pictures here at this site: http://www.DrivewaySteamCleaning.com

Feel free to leave any comments on the site as well, they are much appreciated.

Hope this information helps you.

I have a hoover F5853-900 steam cleaner.Everytime i lift it up the brushes turn but when they are on the carpet they quit.I got told that this model does not have a belt.I really love this steam clean


The brushes are turned by a motor. No belt. It's possible the gears on the brushes have a flat spot on them which would stop them from turning under a load.

Clean bissell spot bot brush


NONE of these answers apply to the question! The asker referred to the Bissell SPOTBOT, which doesn't have a push handle. I'd like to know how to remove the brush myself. I know how to remove the components but haven't been able to figure out how to remove the mechanism.

What is causing a slight burning rubber smell when running the vacuum?


If this is a sweeper model with a rotating brush, remove the brush assembly. Clean and oil (3-1oil or similar) the bearings on the ends of the brush. They are usually full of string, hair, and thread which binds the brush. Check the belt for burn spots or other damage. Hope this helps!

Spot Bot leaking water from reservoir through brushes


make sure that your collection tank is empty and correctly attached. If it is full, it will shoot water on the spot, but not **** it up several times in the cleaning process leaving a large wet puddle bigger than the original spot.

The cleaning solution on my bissell spot bot is not being pumped through....on the stationary mode or the manuel hand held mode with the brush attachment


I had the same problem, and found that the culprit was that the small filter element. about the size of a dime, that sits arount the nozzle activator (pin that depresses the clean water nozzel) was clogged with "gunk", and prevented cleaning solution from flowing into the unit.. It is easy to remove with a pair of tweezers or needle nose pliars.. rise it under water and reseat in the unit. You shoudl be aboe to perform the whole process in under a minute. This has happend to me several times... and am surprised the filter is not mentioned in the manual.

Spin brushes spin freely on steam vac when not attached to cleaner indicator screen not dirty speed selector is in high position brushes are clean spin brush indicator when brushes attached to machine...


If this is a Hoover Steam vac, the turbine which drives the brushes is bad. If not a Hoover, then what is it, they are different, need brand and model number.
