i have a 04 kia sadona i have been having issues with the van overheating someone told me to open the bleeder valve and let it drain then refill leave the valve open and if i see bubbles in the radiator than its a blown head gasket. is this true? is there a bleeder valve on this and if so where is it located? its not on the thermostat housing i allready replaced the thermostat.
it doesnt have a bleeder screw. are ur fans coming on when it satrts to overheat?
I've just been told that I need to replace the valve cover gasket on my 97 Volvo 850.....to the tune of $650.00 .....ouch.....is it that difficult to fix?......can you use the red gasket sealant? is there a difference between the head gasket and the valve cover gasket.......yeah I know there probably is.......but when I look on line all i can find is head gaskets......no valve cover gaskets........which scares me into thinking they are the same thing.....i'm hopeing i'm wrong......if its the valve cover gasket it looks like it would be right on top of the engine and fairly accessable.......or am I wrong......sure would like to save the $650 if it is something i can do myself!!!!
valve covers are easy to remove and replace. don't pay 650 bucks for that. yes, you can use the red sealant, but I would suggest high temperature sealant, usually comes in black, it's oil resistant also. just move anything out of your way, unbolt the valve cover, clean the surfaces off the gasket will touch (cover and engine) apply gasket maker and re-attach.
does it moves up and down with the valve stem??
A poppet valve is a valve consisting of a hole, usually round or oval, and a tapered plug, usually a disk shape on the end of a shaft also called a valve stem. The shaft guides the plug portion by sliding through a valve.. not sure if you are talking about tire valve stems? if so the poppet valve moves within the valve stem. I have also heard them referred to as Schrader valves see link
can you put a blow off valve on a chevy cobalt ss supercharged?
A blow off valve is for turbo waste gate?not super charged
Hi, I have Orbit valve for a section of my yard. The pressure is really low when I turn it on with my remote. When I turn it on manually at the valve, the water pressure is much higher.
Its possible the valve stem is corroded with stuff not letting it actuate properly open. Turn water off and unscrew the valve then actuate it electrically while watching for a full stroke. Make sure flow control is all the way open when inspecting valves stroke. Remember where you had it set when done or readjust. Also check the solenoid for corrosion and clean linkages. I would clean and coat with petroleum jelly. My guess is valve seat is gummed up so lube the stem and work it manually till it slides open and closed easy then test with the solenoid. Good luck!

Valve rotators are just that, they cause the valves to rotate during operation preventing wear in only one spot there by extending the life of the valve and the valve seats.
One day i was cleaning my trumpet's third valve. when i tried pressing the key it was goig inok but near the end it gets stuck and gets unstuck like a second later.how can i fix this problem with out spending too much money?
clean the valve and the tube the valve fits in. You will need to take the bottom cap off and with valve oil on a soft cloth (t shirt) wipe out the inside completely wipe down the valve with the cloth also. Clean the spring that pushes the valve back up. Use a tiny bit of vaseline and a liberal amount of valve oil on the valve. Replace everything. If this doesn't do it, take it to the repair shop.
Water has been seeping out of the sprinklers closest to the anti-siphon valve. Water seeps out of the sprinkler even when the anti-siphon valve is manually closed and not connected electronically. I opened up the anti-siphon valve to inspect the diaphragm, but there is no debris nor it was damaged. To be sure, I switched the diaphragm chamber of the two anti-siphon valves (a suspected leaky one and another good working one), but leak persists from the same sprinklers. I think the leak is from the (float?) rubber seal at the bottom of the stem closing the inlet valve. My anti-siphon is a Hardie (or Irritrol) model 311A series.1) Is my troubleshooting and logic correct? What other components could have contributed to the leak described? 2) At what scenario will water be flowing out of the anti-siphon cap?3) How can I determine if my anti-siphon valve has a vacuum breaker? What is a vacuum breaker good for?4)Which brand makes the most reliable anti-siphon valve?
I work in a printing plant,and our city mandates anti-siphon valves on all our commercial equipment,so I have a little knowledge about these.We used to call these pesky creatures Vacumn Breakers,but now they are called anti-siphon valves,but what's in a name-they both are supposed to accomplish the same thing.Should your water pressure drop,due to a broken main or largefire,these devices are supposed to prevent contaminated water,like the contents of the Agfa Encomatic plate processor rinse tank,or your irrigation pipes,from being pulled back into your plumbing ,and then out your faucets when pressure is restored ,which could make everybody sicker than pooches. The way these work on industrial models is a little more complicated,but the principle is the same,for water to flow through the system,a certain pressure must be maintained.Our older models had a spring and diaphram arragement,the water pressure pushed the diaphram against a seal seat,with a spring behind it.As long as the pressure in the valve was greater than the spring,water would flow through the vave,but when the pressure ceased,the spring closed the diaphram,which in turn opened a vent that allowed the water to drain hence,vacumn breaker.These had to be at a point above the turn-offs,by the way,and when they malfunctioned,due to debris or rusted springs,they could either fail,and stay open,or fail,and water wouldcome gushing out the cap. The conditions you desribe sounds like a low pressure situation,where there is not enough pressure to flow through the anti-siphon.Is your supply line kinked or crushed?
