Question about kawasaki Sport & Outdoor - Others

2 Answers

I have a kawasaki trans 4x4 4010, I think I might have knocked it out of line while pulling a tree out of the road, I backed over a small tree which snatched the steering wheel hard to the left, now when I drive the steering is nowhere close to being centered, and I'm afraid that is going to wear my tires on one side

I don't think it's your transmission that's out of line.

More than likely, when you backed over the tree, it knocked the alignment off for your tires.

A simple trip to the repair shop, get an alignment done, and you should be good to go.

If it is only one side of the tires that are out of alignment, then it also could be a suspemsion part, such as a tie-rod, a crossover bar, anti-sway bar, pittman arm, or still just a tire alignment issue.

You will want to have those things checked out as well, so that it gets repaired properly.

I hope this helps you out, and good luck !

Need to have the suspension checked along with the front alignment of the wheels and steering . If this has moved or shifted from real value or damaged the frame to shift the alignment then it will require the precision setting to reset so that your fears of the tyre wearing.
Once the alignement is checked you can rest and be confirmed there are no issues.

    Provided you are mechanically minded to check at the damage and using the available tools at your end BUt do not attempt half heartedly so as to cause more issues.
    The hand brakes are to be readjusted to let the brake switch OFF. To me this looks as a resetting of the links, check for FREE PLAY and NON FRICTION of the LINKS. Your observation for a first hand view is important.

Can a shade tree mechanic change spark plugs in a 2006 buick lacrosse 3.8

Of course you can, you may need a few tools such as a spark plug socket with a flex attached and a few extensions 3/8 drive but other then that it would be just like any other car. Take your time doing one at a time and wha-la you are done.
First grab the back of the boot and twist a little left and right to break the natural adhersion between the plug and wire then slide the heat shield back and pull off wire, change plug and reinstall with dilectic grease

How do i fix a rear diff the knocking when i put in in reverse or when i take off on hills sysyngog Kyron

I think you need to get some experienced help to identify the problem. You need to have the whole drive line checked from trans to axle, mainly because worn driveshaft joints can also give this noise. Before you get into the diff get it correctly diagnosed, could save you a small fortune? Get it over a pit and engage the trans in forward and reverse at idle, while someone is underneath to spot the noise. Park brake ON.

I have a Bob the Builder ornament holding a Xmas tree. Half the tree is gone leaving an exposed metal rod. How do I replace the lost tree material?

Hi, Hobby Lobby and other "craft stores" have mini trees. Also, small trees are used in model rail roads which can be found on E-bay. Buy the tree and twist it on to the old wire.

My 86 olds cutlass has been sitting up for over a year, now i got it back on the road it won't get out of first gear. What can i do or check. HELP i love my olds.

Change trans fluid and filter. Sounds like valve body in trans is sticking. You might have to do this more than once to "un-gum"

1996 Chevy K1500 4L60E trans problem

O.k. the small hose that you have coming out of the case is the trans vent. The one going up the firewall is for the transfer case. The trans vent should be hooked to the transfercase vent. You say you have a 383? Are you running the fuel injection system. Is this a 4L60E (the stock transmission). If you have fluid coming from the vent, the transmission is getting too hot. Replace the cooler. Do away with the radiator cooler and add one to the front in front of the condenser.

2004 yfz 450 brakes don't work

The caliper probably got torqued and slightly twisted by the tree. This would restrict movement of the brake pad. No movement - no brakes. Pull the caliper and look at the pad as you apply the brake. No movement of the brake pad? Replace the caliper.

Oil leak

Hi, You don't say how much of a leak or if it is wet or blackened oil or if it is oil. Could it be brake fluid ? Clutch? I think before I pulled the trans cover I would remove alot of the fairing pieces and check for loose bolts, clamps, clips, check hoses, seals and overflows. Check levels to see what is low or maybe too full. Don't look for problems that might not be there! Find your source first! Good Luck!
