You need to use a specialised engine paint. Your local auto mart or bike shop should stock it. Don't use anything else, get engine paint!

I painted a section of my garage floor with a cup of paint 1/4c oil base acrylic mixed with 3/4 c water base latex...will it ever dry thoroughly? it is drying slowly and is really sticky. will I just have...

did you ever try to mix water with oil? what was the result? are you sure that you can cross the street without adult holding your hand?

unfortunately you need to remove all that paint, just drop few shovels of fine sand over, and scrape it... sand will adhere to the tp surface of the pain and will allow you to scrape it. after you scrape it off, use any degreaser or similar product to wash reminder off, leave it for few weeks to dry through and then in small patch try if it would accept latex pain, roll it very, very thinly and leave overnight, if it is dry (solid dry) after 24hrs and do not peel off, you can then use this paint on the rest of your garage floor.

now, i would advice strongly against painting garage floor with any paint except concrete paint (they are usually water based with strongly alcalic ph), and after that use concrete seal. this should give you long lasting surface, sealed from oils, dust, water and whatever contaminant you can imagine in the garage.

Where do I find high temp paint to use on a gas stove?

Auto parts stores have manifold and engine paints for high temp use, or the hardware store has barbecue and wood stove paints, usually black. Your stove may have been enameled (Melted glass powder process, like ovens, old sinks and bathtubs).

Is a light coating of oil the only thing to use to return your gas grill exterior to a shinier black again? Was thinking that would make it sticky after it heats up.

A light coat of oil will bake on and create a brown varnished look that you will have one heck of a time getting it off. If the gas grill is painted... and not porcelin coated no amount of cleaning will bring back the shiny black if the pain has been faded by sunlight. The only thing that will bring back that sheen again is a "high temp" gloss enamel paint. (Clear coating is NOT recommended. post paint as it will also darken even if it is high temp)

To clean it use a product like Mr. Muscle Kitchen cleaner or similar product. Engine degreaser works too but will dull the paint. If you plan on cleaning for painting you can use engine degreaser. If not... stick with the Mr. Muscle kitchen cleaner. Just make sure to rinse thoroughly and let it dry and lightly sand / wipe before painting.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

I have a toyo laser 56 stove. It is starting to make a moaning noise. what shoud i do?


You need to have a new mat put in the bottom of the burner. When this mat lifts, sometimes the flame will cause a moaning noise with a large yellow flame. A new mat and maybe a burner ring will fix ya.

94 Jeep Wrangler back shelf rusting

Wire brush the area off and vacuum up any debris. You can use "rust killer" on the rusted surfaces and then use fiberglass mat to repair any holes. Overlap holes by at least 5" wherever possible. You can leave this unfinished or use spray bedliner paint to further seal the deck. i also recommend you go underneath and remove any loose rust and spray afterward with rubberized undercoating or rust will continue to form there. When using fiberglass on flat surfaces you can lay mat down dry and just pour resin on it and smooth it out so resin penetrates and you don't have lumps.
