Running - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support


there is not much hope for a solution to this problem as it is common to all shoes sold
Why adidas will not help is that they and all shoe manufacturers are aware that all shoes have a shelf life and if the shoe is not used in a short period of time after manufacturer the material used starts to break down and become unstable
it is the movement of the sole that sets the material and produces a long wear period but shoes ( and boots ) bought and stored will fail quickly with sole problems ( cracking, falling off , bits falling out etc )
Best advice is wear all your shoes on a regular basis for the first few months before leaving them in the cupboard and to get a retailer that will offer a replacement pair if the soles fail in a short period of time as a good will gesture for the customer
of course you can always resort to legal action as there is an expectation by the purchaser that the goods will last for a reasonable period of time regardless of expressed warranty period or not

You are saying that the water comes on by itself? What water pressure do you have?

If by timing you mean that you aren't sure that you have the belt on the cam/crank assemblies properly, now is a bad time to mention it. This is an interference engine. Proper alignment of the crank/cam with the timing belt is critical and must be exact or serious internal engine damage will result. Even turning the engine too far without the belt properly aligned can damage pistons and valves. At this point if you didn't get it right, the damage is probably already done. For a quick check, disable the fuel pump, pull the spark plugs and perform a compression check. If it doesn't pass, take it all apart and assess the damage and repair as necessary.

have you had the OBD codes read , if not i'd have that done , note the codes , if any , clear them, as claering the codes can sometimes be all that needs doing , if no change post the codes and will be able to locate the sensor/switch causing the issue , another thing to check would be the compression in that cylinder , if low then investigate from there ie valves , head gasket etc

Running shoes last roughly between 300-500 miles or between 4-6 months. These are rough estimates as there are several factors that contribute to the breakdown of your shoe, like how often you are running, what surface you are running on, and other factors like heat and weight.

  1. Remove the coolant overflow bottle.
  2. Remove the battery.
  3. Loosen the pulley bolts.
  4. Loosen or remove the drive belt.
  5. Remove pulley bolts
  6. Remove all studs and bolts from old water pump.
  7. Pull old pump off. Use a screwdriver to start it but be careful not to bend the old pump. Also, tapping the center of the pulley lightly with a hammer may help loosen it. If it is hard to get out, check and make sure all bolts are removed. When you remove the pump, there will not be enough room to remove the pulley drum from the pump. This is important to remember when installing the new water pump.
  8. Scrape area off with a gasket scraper and razor blade to remove old gasket. Make sure its clean! Spray it with brake cleaner and wipe clean afterward.
  9. Spray both sides of the new gasket with high tack. High tack works much better than the goop because it is clean, even, and seals well.
  10. Slip gasket in carefully and be sure it fits properly over bolts and is in correct placement against block. Press down to ensure seal.
  11. Spray the inside of the water pump with high tack evenly.
  12. Install water pump into correct place against block making sure that pulley drum is already hanging from new pump or you will not get it on afterward!
  13. Install bolts and studs and tighten down.
  14. Install pulley screws and tighten as best you can.
  15. Reinstall and tighten drive belt.
  16. Finish tightening pulley bolts.
  17. Reinstall battery and coolant overflow bottle being sure that bottle is empty.
  18. Let sealant dry overnight.
^if you follow the book and have little experience that is the best way
I have 11 years experience working on cars and 4 years were at a cadillac dealer

This will give you more hand room I Take the 2 nuts off the bottom of the front motor mount and back motor mount, on the passenger side then I jack up the motor on the passenger side end of the oil pan with a board between the jack and the oil pan. You can jack it up a couple of inches, it gives you plenty of room. I leave it jacked up until I'm done, even putting the belt on is alot easier. Then lower the motor, and put the nuts back on the mounts
