I recently heard you can fill a stocking or a sock with kitty litter and it will keep the moisture absorbed.

I thought we had a duplicate, but can't find it, so here is what I have successfully used: Thoroughly clean the inside of the windscreen Dry with paper towels Use a product like Rain-X anti-fog (there are various by different manufacturers, but this is what I use) That will at least clear the windscreen. Now, to help stop it fogging up again you have ...

According to this Wikipedia article, there are many differences, but most of them are minor: Both use the same 4.6l SOHC V8 engine The Police Interceptor (PI) has: An external oil cooler A slightly different tune which allows the engine to idle a slight bit higher (40rpm) Has more aggressive transmission shift points Transmission is built for harder, ...

I have had a few things cause the same problem. There is a relay for the starter on the fender well. Some auto parts stores refer to it as a solenoid. When it gets warn sometimes it will drag a little and not disengage all the way. If that happens you will have electrical problems like gauges in dash acting weird, sometimes you will have problems with ...

The answer to this question is what was put into its design at the drawing board stage. Encapsulation and water proofing of components susceptable to being submerged in water being the main consideration. As an electric vehicle construction is usually decided by its weight, less weight means less drain on the battery means greater distance between charges, ...

As Paulster2 says, it's more likely to be the solenoid. To check this, use a multimeter to watch the voltage on the solenoid connector (the smaller of the two on the starter) as it's cranked - it should go to 12v(ish) when the key is turned, and back to 0v when it's released. They're usually fairly integral to the starter, so it's normally a case of ...

The circulation of the coolant through the engine is by the engines water pump. Low compression would effect the performance of the engine, but not the circulation of the coolant. You proberbly have an engine that is not timed up correctly if all the compressions are all low, cams out for instance.

If you don't get heat into your cabin, it's usually because of a blocked radiator. That would explain your overheating too. Unfortunately, that ALSO means that you could have damaged your head gasket, which would explain the low compression and difficulty starting. They don't sound particularly shady to me. Given your history and your current problem with ...

Is the leak 'rain water' or 'engine coolant'? If you can smell a sweet smell inside the car and have a lot of internal misting of the vehicles windows them you proberbly have a heater radiator leak. Also on the bulk head in the engine compartment you will find the heater control valve which can cause leakage into the vehicle after the coolant runs around the ...

I would say that it is not a safe assumption. There are three main places where a wheel could be loose at, assuming the lug nuts are tight. Those are the wheel bearing(s), upper/lower ball joints, or at bushings at the base of the control arm. You might also be getting deflection out of your tie rod ends or steering rack (if equipped) as well. You could also ...

If this vehicle has air conditioning, I'd bet the condensation drain tube is plugged. When this happens, the excess water which collects has no where to go but into the passenger side foot well. To fix this, you need to find the drain tube which should stick down under the car on the passenger side of the engine bay (can only be accessed from below). When ...
