Thanks. I appreciate that. I know I've heard one other person mention the ABS pump or possibly a proportional valve. I'll wait to hear how changing out the hoses works out for you.

Is that something you can tell by looking at it? I checked that and didn't see anything apparent wrong with that.

Calipers Locking Up on Town and Country

I have an '08 Town and Country minivan that has had a history with brake problems. The previous owner had pads and rotors replaced twice in the front and once in the back. When I purchased the...

96 Contour Blower Motor Problem

My GF has a 96 Ford contour and the heater fan just went out. It had stopped working on full speed a week ago, but had worked on the lower speeds. I'm guessing the problem is either in the switch...

I retract my statement from before. Sounds like a 200 amp service would be a good idea. Your garage sounds like it will draw more than the house! Ha Ha. Wiring the garage won't be cheap either.

Because you're doing the whole house, I'd also suggest that you hire a contractor and see if you can help. That's a lot to take on for a first timer. Not only will helping the contractor save you...

Finished Update

Well the seam is done. I ended up using a plain old household iron. I noticed the pile was not square though. What I did was I cut both pieces along the pile to get them close. Then, I marked out a T...

I'll definitely get the seam sealer then. Because of my ignorance on the subject, I didn't know if there was a difference between that and the carpet glue. Like I said before, I'm trying to save...

Wow, high praise for Smokey. It seems I'm talking to the right guy. I did my homework and figured out what the tracker was. I'm hoping I can find one at one of the big box stores but I may have to...

Yea, it took me a second as well to get what the store owner was talking about when he said to cut the 12'x14' piece in half. I was thinking lengthwise too, not widthwise and then rotating them. I...

Last time I topped it off I used 10w30. I think Scrub-a-dub uses the same during the warmer months. There's no oil in the air filter. Are you saying that's what happens with the PCV goes?

OK, sorry it's been a while since I've gotten back to you guys. I kind of got side tracked into designing and building an alarm for my garage. It's something that I've planned to do for a while since...

Hi Smokey. Thanks for your response. I'm not sure that we're totally on the same page. First off, you're correct, the room is 6'6" wide. The plan was not to cut the carpet along the width (12'), but...

Carpet Seam

I'm installing carpet in a room for my daughter. The room is roughly 6 1/2' x 16'. In order to cut costs, I bought a cut-off roll of 12' x 14'. I figured once cut in half, I'd have a running length...

Yea, I figured it wouldn't be a DC motor. OK, so I get a TEFC motor and match up the RPM... I suppose as long as I match up the horsepower as well it should work fine, right? As far as excessive...

I'd think for a home computer, you could get away with going over 300', but 500'-600' would be pushing it. Like others have said, you can try it. Personally, I'd spend the extra cash on fiber to...

It looks like each set of screws is jumpered per each wire. So yes, you're better off going 1 wire per screw. 1 red per each screw of the red terminal, one green per each screw of the green, ect......

I have no idea what you're talking about. I'm confused because I've never seen a compact flourescent for $1.50. Maybe it all depends on what part of the country you live in. They usually cost more...

Looks nice to me the way it is. You want to fancy it up more along the edge of the stairs? I guess the only thing I would've done differently is run the carpet all the way up to the door instead of...

Not to mention that molding is for aesthetics. It's not structural. The smaller the nail, the less the eyesoar. Smaller = better. As mentioned before, the length of the nail is much more important.

Ah Frenchy, you beat me to the punch. My respnonse was to Bob's reply not yours BTW. To clear things up for you, I obviously have 120/240v. My plan is not to bring in 3-phase or 120/208v. I also...

If you're planning on shimming the tiles (so the trim doesn't suck the tile up) I'd give yourself 1/4" of play. You can be a little short, but if you're just a little too far past the tile, the trim...

I know there's a way to rig single phase up to feed a 3-phase motor. I can't remember exactly how to do it anymore. I'd imagine that's not worth it and that it's probably pretty inefficient -...
