Yeah, take it to a shop. Often you need a special wrench to tighten correctly... Not a big repair.

Where can I get service info on Kent Bicycles,and parts


Kent are cheap bikes usually sold in large department stores. There isn't anything special about them and any local bike shop will be able to service them for you. They use all the common size tires/tubes, pedals, bearings etc. and replacement parts are relatively cheap from your local specialty bike shop retailer or can be found online at Amazon or Ebay.

Noise my 03 xterra makes when I crank it up. One guy said exhaust manifold and another said knock sensor. Just need a second opinion.


Many times a bad starter motor makes noise like clanking, clicking or grinding when crank the engine. Replace the starter. Sometimes, if the starter motor is grinding the gears on the flywheel, the engine will have a metallic grating sound when you first crank it. This type of starter noise is normally indicative of a starter motor that is worn and about to fail. If you do need to replace your starter this site looks like it has cheap prices, free shipping and great reviews http://www.buyautoparts.com/starter.htm

My 1999 Silverado has engine knocking when starting. Using Mobil 1 and good filter. Any suggestions?


Most engine knocks/noise is caused by worn rod/main bearings or piston noise, you are sure this is not a valve follower tap? in any event unless it gets worse I would not be concerned, most of the knock noises are piston related and will not cause early failure of the engine, if it is deep hard knock u have a failed crank or rod bearing, this must be repaired as it will only get worse.

No Rear Quick Release


Some less expensive bikes do not come with quick release skewers. You just unscrew the bolts like you would any other using a wrench or socket. The will probably be really tight so you may need to bear down or use a cheater pipe. Unfortunately, these bolt on wheels tend to be solid axles and cannot take a quick release skewer. You would need to replace the wheel.

Loud grinding noise when washer is draining


something in the impeller housing. not usually serviceable. not sure if that unit has two pumps. you could look underneath the tub and try to determine that, and where the noise is coming from.
i am confident the issue relates to a pump unit.
good luck
