Can I Use SMPS to Power 12V DC Water Pump

It's probably adequate. The pump draws 60W continuous, which is 5A, according to the nameplate, and you are proposing a 10A power supply. Diaphragm pumps, to my knowledge, do not tend to draw enormous current on start-up, and the power supply, if the ratings are real, is capable of supplying some startup surge, so a 2:1 factor is probably okay. The only way to be sure, really, is to test it. You could also go for a much bigger power supply to be more sure

1. Replaced water pump, thermostat, and radiator, coolant still isnt flowing.?

You could have a air lock ,loosen the top return water pipe that is fitted to the top of the radiator ,take the radiator cap off put a running water pipe hose pipe into the radiator start the engine . and see if you can remove the air lock . I hope this helps you .

2. Is it hard to replace a water pump on a 2002 Jeep Liberty if I wanted to do it myself?

No. Get a chiltons or haynes manual at your local autozone. It will tell you how step by step. Assuming you have tools and a bucket to drain the radiator

3. Step by step, how do you replace the water pump on a 1992 Chevrolet Cavalier?

buy chiltons or hanes book or remember how you took it apart

4. How much would it be in labor and parts to change a water pump on a new Dodge Durango?

The cheapo water pump from oreillys is $46, the higher end one is around $70. As far as labor, Mitchell OnDemand calls for 2 hours flag rate time to change it out. You will probably be looking at at least 1 gallon of antifreeze as well for what will be lost changing it out, and I would recommend changing the thermostat when you change the water pump. The 5. 9 uses a timing chain, which I wouldnt recommend replacing, seeing as the vehicle has that low of miles on it. I am not sure how much labor costs in your area, but the shop I work at charges $75 per flag rate hour. So if we were to do it, taxes and everything it would be right around $250. If you live in a big city, you will probably be expecting to pay around $100 a hour for labor at a reputable shop. Good luck and hope this helps

5. overheating problems in a 98 pontiac transport van?

Yes it sounds like you have a clogging problem. I dont know when you changed the antifreeze or flushed the system, but ......... It may also be a combination of problems i. e. radiator, thermostat or water pump. If your not expereined in repairs, I would take it to a radiator shop and have them give it a evaluation. I would not advise taking it to a dealer, they regualrily charge exessive amounts to look at these things. You need to change your antifreeze every 1-2 years to keep it in the best condition. Good Luck.

6. Can a water pump gasket leak be the reason I keep running low on coolant?

Check inside the vehicle on the passenger side. Your heater core could be leaking. Pull up the rug and see and feel if it is wet

7. Is it hard to replace a water pump on a 2002 Jeep Liberty if I wanted to do it myself?

Most libraries have a computer data help base. Go to the library with your library card and get assistance. The data base will give you directions and illustrations. You may have to take the radiator cowl and fan blad off and remove the belts. If you have had any mechanical abilities, it should not be a job of great difficulty

8. How can I check if my well still has water if the pump is broken?

Find the actual top of the well, (follow the suction pipe), dig out and clean off, remove the well cap, preferably also remove the suction pipe so there's nothing to snag on (it should pull easily, and you will want to look at the foot valve anyway) tie a weight to a string, if the string will not obviously show where it's wetted, attach a rag or something to the weight, and lower it 27 feet (since you appear to have a simple suction/surface pump setup - 1 pipe to the well.)Be very careful of the opened well - you probably wo not be able to fall into it like Lassie's idiot friend (in most cases, but there are still a few that big in service) but you do not want to drop anything into it - hard to get back out, and bad for your water supply. Recap as soon as you are done testing.Pull up, if the string or rag is wet, you have water that you can pump with that type of pump. You still wo not know actual flow capacity of the well until you do a pump test, which involves actually applying a pump and removing water - any well / pump company can do that for you, for a price, or you can just buy a pump and do it yourself, less formally.You can also use more string and check how deep the well is, though to actually exploit any water below 27 feet you need to change pump types - but changing to a submersible type pump would put the pump safely in the well rather than outside in the weather and vandal (? something's been broken, anyway) zone. If there's actually much more extensive breakage and that was a jet pump (two pipes in the well), you want to change to a submersible anyway (in my opinion, in this day and age) for a variety of reasons including more efficent pumping and no priming needed. When placing the well back in service, you should "shock-treat" it to kill any bacteria introduced while servicing the well. You should avoid drinking the water until you have tested it (after flushing & using it for non-drinking purposes for a while after shock-treatment) to be sure that it is actually safe to drink

Ask Smithy: Automotive Advice
GOT car problems? Graham Smith can help.Diesel's having a pink fitIn my 2007 Nissan Navara, the 2.5-litre turbo diesel stutters or hesitates and makes a pinking noise when it's cold but it's OK when it's warm. I have had it to two mechanics and they couldn't fix it. What do you think is wrongKevin RomanoCheck the injectors. Your problems are most likely there. --Just handle ItHow can I improve the handling of my 2010 Nissan MaximaAndrew, emailNissan specialist Jerry Newman is horrified at the thought of trying to improve the handling of the Maxima. He believes it handles well as it is and is better left alone. If you were to seek to improve the handling, you could fit uprated springs and struts but this would be expensive. Use quality components from the likes of Pedders. Perhaps you could check the web for components used in Japan but you must understand that whatever you do will have a detrimental effect on the car's ride and you might not improve the handling much anyway. --Annoying LeakMy Subaru Outback 2.5 EFI has developed a slow leak at the rear of the engine between the head and the block. I have had it pressure tested and that's the only place it's leaking from. It doesn't overheat and there are no bubbles in the radiator or water in the oil. I have had the water pump, radiator hoses and radiator checked and there are no leaks. I have had three independent reports by mechanics that say the same thing. To fix the problem, it's necessary to pull the motor out and I have been quoted $2800 to $4800 to do it. It has done only 176,000km and I am pretty dirty at having a head gasket go at this relatively early stage. Any suggestions for a fixAlan, emailI would try Bars Leaks or a similar product and hope it seals the coolant leak. To replace the gasket, which is the best fix, you would have to take the engine out as the mechanics suggest. --No Cruise ControlLast year my 2004 Renault Megane Turbo Sports started to play up with a miss in the engine when at a constant speed. It's not there on acceleration, only when cruising. I have had four mechanics check it. They changed the alternator and the exhaust sensor, the injectors were cleaned three times, new spark plugs were installed, it had the vacuum test and a camera up the exhaust pipe. One said it was a sticking exhaust valve but that would cost $4000 and it might not fix it! What can I doWarren, emailYour description of the problem suggests it is not an ignition problem. I would be investigating the fuel side of the equation, looking for things that might be making it lean at low throttle openings as you would be when cruising. Is there an air leak that is affecting the mixture strength, or something like that Having said that, it could be a sticking valve as the mechanic has diagnosed. --Towing The LineWhat would be the safest towing load for my 2002 Nissan X-Trail auto 2.5, and what would be the safest and best towing set-upGordon McCarthy, emailNissan rated the X-Trail to tow 2000kg with trailer brakes, so you should be able to safely tow up to that weight. --Engine FailureI have a 2009 Nissan Navara 2.5 diesel and I am concerned about the stories I have read of these motors failing anywhere from 60,000km to 120,000km. I have also read about the timing gear failing. Have you heard anything about this and if it's true what can I do to prevent itPhil Harrison, e-mail.There are reports of engines failing but these evidently were not serviced by the book. It is important to religiously service the Navara, and use the Nissan recommended oil. The failures we have heard about are mostly failures of the camshaft and cam timing gear, which have led to more serious damage.Originally published as
What Are the Holes Which Are Found in an Engine Block?
The holes in engine blocks do multiple things:1: they are threaded and have the ability to screw bolts into them. This is done to hold things on like cylinder heads, water pumps, motor mounts, etc2: they have oil flowing through them. The oil pump (most usually driven by the crankshaft) will push oil through a series of "galleys" that provide oil to other places in the engine. For example, there are often small holes in the crankshaft journals that allow oil to flow and lubricate the crank. When things that bolt to the engine require oil there are holes (for example at the cylinder head interface) that allow oil to flow into that part. you can see them on the top of the block3: they have coolant flowing through them. Except for air-cooled engines, just like oil, the engine needs coolant. there are also other parts (again, cylinder head) that require coolant as well. There are passages that allow the coolant to flow from one to the other. 4: In addition on the coolant there are what are known as "freeze plugs" in various spots. These are usually metal discs about 2 diameter (some smaller, some larger) that are made of a softer metal and pushed into the block. This is because when water freezes it expands, and if there is a freezing expansion inside a sealed block it can do a lot of damage. These freeze plugs are designed to be pushed out if the coolant freezes, and they can be easily replaced instead of replacing a cracked block from freezing.5: and of course the cylinders themselves that have the pistons.And sometimes you'll find some holes that have no purpose at all, at least in the installation that you have. For example, you could have holes in a block that are not threaded and are used for attaching some accessory that did not come on the car that you have. Or a oil galley hole that has a plug in it.What are the holes which are found in an engine block?.1. What's the optimal placement for water pumps?As I remember it, water pump placement does affect certain aspects including but possibly not limited to:Generally following these guidelines they are best placed somewhere near a natural water source some distance from the main body of your city. This is less of an issue than water towers because the distance the pumps effect is mitigated by piping. (Just remember to provide them with power. )As stated in my comment, take this answer with a grain of salt. I've written it entirely based off my memory and cannot prove or source any of the information2. how many water pumps are in a volvo penta?The water pump is located in the outdrive. You should see a screen area on the lower end where the pump is loicated. I would guess the impeller needs to be replaced. You should stop running the engine 'till it is fixed3. how do i polish metal to a mirror shine on a buffer. or does anyone know how they polish water pumps and ect.?Much will depend on the type of metal being polished. Your local auto parts store will have several different products for different metals, i.e., chrome, steel, stainless steel, brass, etc. Follow label directions.4. Weiand chev short water pumps?Asian products are copycat of Americans,but in a fauty way.. let say that pump will fit,it gonna brake in two months an spoil something else, I owns a shop( a big one) the best and most expensive in town.I have a big waiting list of customer(appointments for 3 month) why? I only use Americam made parts.on American car. if one of my suppler send me a wrong one by mistake,then they will not longer will be my supplier. if You would paid to see,Frank Sinatra ,You do not want to see Jackie Chang singing My Way in the stage.5. Any websites where i can find parts for classic cars?Your best bet is to try and find the individual part you need, such as "bushing 1971 Matador" or other parts. You can find water pumps, distributor caps, spark plugs, shocks, brakes and all that at your Auto Parts store. You might also think about buying a parts car.

10 Best RV Battery Monitors Reviewed and Rated in 2021 - RV Web
You can rely on the heavy-duty battery monitor from Victron due to its incredible functionality. If you were like me, having a 40-foot motorhome which requires a lot of power supply from the battery banks to run the LED lights, water pump, and the fridge, you would want a device showing the accurate state of your battery.I'm thinking of getting a Kia Rio?I have not experienced any Kias but a Hyundai. man they are nice. Actually it was owned and driven by my mom and she only spent money on oil change, transmission fluid and timming belt with water pump It now has 180,000km still smooth and quiet Oh the car is 2002 Hyundai XG350Any car geniuses want to help?? 2003 Ford Focus?sounds like a pulley on the timing belt or water pump went south,next time you hear a noise please get it checked out be fore something really bad happensMy car started to over heat today. What do you think the cause might be?Water pump? Head Gasket? .priceyWhat are the signs of a bad water pump for a car?You might notice coolant leaking out of the water pump housing. The shaft connected to the pulley for the water pump might have a lot of play in it when tugged/moved by hand (with engine OFF!). The water pump itself may be very difficult to spin by hand if you try (again, engine OFF!). You obviously have a coolant leak somewhere if you are adding water frequently. Figure out what is leaking first before you start blaming the water pump for the overheating. A leaking thermostat housing (for example) can cause the thermostat to read improperly making you think it's overheating when it's not. A bad thermostat can do the same thing without a leak. A bad temp sensor can read a false overheat. Etc.,1968 GTO with 400 engine?are you looking for stock 68 or stock 71? fo a stock 68 GTO, the intake manifold was cast iron, not aluminum with a quadrajet carb and choke coil. The valve covers are wrong. and the timing case cover, water pump and alternator/power steeing pump brackets are all wrong. The heads should b like a casting 16 or 62 numbers are in the middle right above the exhaust manifolds. Now from the picture, it looks to be all there, but it is not 1968. Also you might want to replace or remove the blue paint from the brake booster and master cylindercoolant and water leak in '92 ford econoline? PICTURES?When an engine gets a coolant leak, the fluid travels along the side of the engine and onto things like the steering link shown in your picture then on the ground unless there is a direct drop from the leak point. This happens often which makes it more difficult to find. You are going to need a good light. The places to look for a coolant leak is radiator hoses or heater hoses (easiest to repair), water pump (gasket), thermostat housing. Since it's leaking in the front of the engine we can hopefully rule out a freeze plug. Also, if the water pump bearing goes bad, usually you will hear a metallic grinding sound coming from the water pump's bearing and it will leak coolant out at the bottom of the bearing housing. However other clues to this would be engine over-heating. Other causes could be a crack in the thermostat housing. Ok that's all I can think of; hope this helpsAny idea on average cost to replace vehicle water pump?If you are mechanically inclined and have a few basic tools you can do this yourself. Call a parts distributor and get a price on the pump and if there is a core charge (you get money back when you take in the old one). Should'nt be more than $150 to $200or the pump and a few jugs of antifreeze. If you take it into a shop it should only take them 1 to 2 hours to replace it. Total bill at a shop will be close to $400 to $500temperature gauge creeps up in heavy stop and go traffic?check and see there is rust in the radiator,flush radiator out or boil it out check fan belts thermostat could be sticking and water pump could be so many things check the radiator cap it could be loosing pressure
2002 Ford Focus Water Pump Or Heater Core?
This Site Might Help You. RE: 2002 Ford Focus water pump or heater core? I have a 2002 ford focus and it has been leaking water for just over a year. It is leaking faster now. And I have noticed that heat is coming inside the car from the floor. I checked under the car and saw water dripping from the water pump. However the water pump has not given any of the tell tell...1. what are the symptoms of a bad water pump on a vehicle?I would start with the thermostat. It is the cheapest and can make the car overheat. Go ahead and back flush the system and clean the radiator at the same time. The hoses should be hard since the system is pressurized. The water heater will generally make some noise since the bearings going out is the reason for failure2. Does anyone know what is wrong with my car, its leaking coolant.?take it to the shop have them pressure test the system and find out where is leaking it cost $24.99 at pep boys it could be water pump or a radiator pressure test will tell you exactly whats leaking, then i recommend you go to and ask a master tech for tips and advise on how to get that job done and it's free service.3. My 1996 Oldsmobile Aurora is leaking water, is it my water pump?Sounds like a water pump to me. Go to your local auto parts store (Auto Zone, or O'Reilly) & check the "Chilton's" manual for your car to be sure. The store will also ID your leak for you. Remember to check your radiator fluid level & make sure it is full before leaving! (Do not add to it hot! Nor do you want to check it hot, add water to the overflow (big plastic jug with a cap that says coolant on it) instead. Hope this helps!4. how much do new brakes and a water pump cost?in good condition (depending on the mileage) it may be worth a thousand dollars, but if all the brakes need doing and the master cylinder, and the rotors, that brake job and water pump could be almost as much as you paid for the car. And what is the guy so lazy or cheap he does not do repair work, ?? I bet it needs tags soon too, this guy sounds like some cheap basshole, tell him to fix the car, and walk away from it any way, the transmissions were bad on the early 90s taurus, go with a later model after 97 they are much better, let this guy keep is crappy taurus, that he will not fix, and keep looking, patience, patience,patience is the name of the game for good cheap thousand dollar cars, and this is not the one. good luck5. Air Locked Water Pump?If you are using a standard well pump, then there should be a check valve in the pipe between the holding tank and the pump. In a well it will be a foot valve, but may also have been a simple check valve. The work on your mains may have introduced dirt into the valve and prevents if from sealing and maintaining the pressure in the system when the pump stops. Someone also suggested that the pressure tank (not the holding tank) associated with the pump has become water logged. If that is the case then a small volume of water coming out of the pressure tank will cause a large enough pressure change to keep the pump working. Last possibility, there has to be a sensor that determines that the level of the water in the holding tank is low and will turn on the mains supply and when the level gets high enough that the mains supply is turned off. This can be a pressure switch or a mercury switch similar to one with a sump pump, etc. So my suggestions are: Check to make sure that the holding tank is clean and there is no sediment in it. Check to make sure that the holding tank fills when the water level drops, (it appears to stop when it is full). If you do this next procedure, make sure that you know how to prime your pump. I would also turn off the hot water tank. If it is a foot valve, remove the foot valve by removing the clamp and then back wash it to clean out the dirt. If it is an in-line check valve then remove the pipe. between the pump and the holding tank and invert it, and run water through it to clean out any sediment, then replace the pipe. Drain the pressure tank, and if you can pump some air into it. Then make sure that everything is connected, prime the pump and turn it on. Make sure that everything is working, then at each tap, especially the hot water taps, turn them on and leave running until the water flows smoothly. When all of the air is out of the system then turn on the hot water tank.
What Type of Coolant Should I Use for 2004 Toyota Sienna?
Your 2004 Sienna calls for "Super Long Life" coolant, the color is pink not the red (That's for older Toyota vehicles) it is only available in 50/50 mix from Toyota! The coolant type is HOAT (Hybrid Organic Acid Technology) NOTE: I know that you are aware that your timing belt is due for replacement at 90,000 or 108 months, at that time, the belt, water pump and belt tensioner and the engine coolant should be replaced at the same time.1. increasing the battery amps to fit a water pump [closed]I do not know where you got the 0.036A number for the Yuasa YB3L-B battery. Batteries of that type and their equivalent replacements are rated for 3 Amp Hour.With a fully charged fresh battery you should be able to easily run the bilge pump for an hour or more as the pump drawing 1.8A is less than Amp Hour rating of the battery. If your battery is only delivering 0. 036A then it is either not connected to the load correctly or the battery is completely kaput and needs replacement with a new one2. Is my water pump in my car broken?it may not have been coolant but condensation in the ac3. how to reprime a water pump?Remove the pump from it's current location, and using flexible hoses , move the pump below the water line in the lower tank.

Older Ford V8 Water Pump Question?when you have money buy new, the 70s years today cost way less, an if you were to overheat you would wish you had!7. Replace Well water pump low water pressure?If the pressure tank is bad, there will be water coming out of the little air valve on the top. Otherwise it is good. You need to make sure you install an automatic and not a manual 30/50 pressure switch and that the nipple going to the switch is not clogged. And with the pump off and all water pressure out of the tank, you need to guage the tank like a tire and make sure you have exactly 28psi on the tank. However, these problems generally occur when mud builds upon the rubber diaprham where the nipple attaches to the pressure switch. I would bet that if you address the two things i mentioned above you should have water. Also mud will affect the accuracy of the guage. worst case scenerio if your well has changed due to heavy rain or new wells being drilled nearby, you may have to lower your pump a foot or two,but that is least likely. Also could be a damaged wire going to the pump which is very likely8. How to repair a water pump on a 2002accura?Acura what? CL,TL,RL,RSX,MDX? When asking a question, please include the complete vehicle information, (Year, Make, Model) As this will give us the necessary information so we can give the most accurate answer. Most Acura engines of this vintage call for replacement of the timing belt,000 miles. If your vehicle has more than this mileage, you are on borrowed time! NOTE: All Acura engines are interference engines (with the exception of the SLX) this means, if the timing belt snaps, catastrophic engine damage will result!9. 1998 Delta Eighty Eight water pump removal?You need to remove the pulley. I use copper coat gasket adhesive to hold the gasket in place during assembly. Also use neversieze on the bolt threads.10. show procedure remove water pump 1995 honda accord?The water pump is located behind the timing belt, and one of the motor mounts also happens to be on the front cover. So you would need to support the engine, take the front engine mount off, take the timing cover off, remove the timing belt (good time to replace it, while you are in there), tensioners, pulleys, then remove the water pump. I would replace the timing belt idler pulleys and tensioners as well. Installation is reverse of removal.
Does Anyone Know How to Change a Water Pump on a Benz 190e?
Look here. If you can afford A Mercedes you should take it the the shop. You know how fickled German cars are. (smile)1. What is optimal on/off cycle for well water pump?There is no optimum time. This is dependent on several factors. Assuming you are pumping into a small tank which is pressurized by the inflow of water from the pump (and the pressure also controls the pump) these reasons can be excessive use of water, the air space at the top of your tank has been absorbed into the water over a period of time and the volume of compressed air too small causing the pressure to drop too fast, or you could have leak in your water piping. If there is not enough air space in your tank, the pump will cycle extremely fast. If you do not have a tank, then the above information is incorrect. Good luck.2. Price to change a timing belt and water pump for an '00 eclipse v6?Both sound fair.

It pays to assemble the pump with a suitable lubricant to avoid tearing or galling in the first few moments of use before water can fully enter the pump housing.4.

My car leaks water/coolant what could it be if it's not the water pump?If by coolant tank, you mean the reservoir (white or clear plastic tank), you will be okay to drive it as long as it does not overheat. But if your radiator is leaking, be careful. So if the coolant is low or gone, you may not know the car is actually overheating. If the radiator is leaking and you have no choice but to drive the 250mi, keep a supply of pre-diluted coolant with you and pull over to check the level often. It's recommended you let the engine cool down before you do this, but if you absolutely have to check with the engine hot, have a rag/cloth handy. Turn off the engine and check the coolant in the radiator, not the reservoir. You will have to open the radiator cap. Put the rag over the cap and SLOWLY twist. Open it just enough to relieve some pressure. If coolant starts to spray out, close it back up. Once the pressure is relieved, remove the cap and check the level.
Surrender at the Water Pump at Wind River Indian Reservation
A few years ago, I sat in my car outside the tribal clinic on the Wind River Indian Reservation in Wyoming, being tied to my steering wheel by a two-year-old Northern Arapaho boy named Quame. We were waiting for his mother to finish her appointment. Then she and Quame would go home and I would go into the desert with a relative of theirs to look for runaway horses -- an adventure I'd been looking forward to for days. But the minutes ticked by without her coming out, and I felt my opportunity for outdoor fun evaporate in the nonlinear pooling of resources that happens when you have a car and the people around you don't.Just then, a van pulled up next to me. A trio of elderly Native Americans with empty plastic milk jugs had come to get water at a pump that stood nearby. They looked happy and relaxed as they labored out of the van and lumbered up to the pump. One of the men worked the handle. Quame and I watched. Nothing came out."Shit!" I thought. "NOTHING works around here." The two men and one woman turned. Their facial expressions hadn't changed a bit. Seeing Quame and me watching them, the woman smiled and waved. We waved back.A couple of centuries ago, the Arapahos were living hunt to hunt on the plains. Then their home was invaded, occupied and subdued by people who looked a lot like me. And now, this damn water pump. The Arapaho have never lived outside the cycles of cause and effect. Nothing that lives on this planet ever has, except perhaps for my own culture, whose technological savvy has allowed us to absent ourselves from cause and effect for a few centuries while we mine the place dry.Once I asked a family up here what they wanted for dinner. "Whatever you cook," someone said, adding, as if I'd neglected to notice, "We're Arapahos." A cowboy I knew told me about a chat he had with an elderly Arapaho man about history. The old man wasn't angry about how things had ended up for the Native Americans. He said the Creator makes things happen, and if he were to feel angry he'd be putting himself above the Creator.The cowboy was surprised."All my life I'd been taught to be a white guy and be very pissed off when things didn't go my way," he told me. "What I heard that day I've been using for years, to deal with my own anger." So, I thought, as the vanload of elderly Arapahos pulled out and Quame wound another length of webbing around my arm, when exactly did my own people decide not to accept things, but to change them? The advent of the railroad? The invention of the plow? Was that the first time we looked at the deer herds and wild strawberries and said, "Er, thanks for the glistening, sweet-smelling planet and all. But not enough is happening here. We're gonna make stuff happen ." And off we went to plow and plant and drill for oil in the Gulf of Mexico.Me, I don't surrender to much and I certainly don't surrender to water pumps. I'm from a culture of worriers, improvers, ferreters, miners, irrigators, builders of plows, railroads, automobiles, armies, nuclear bombs, diet sodas, solar panels --- the most Can-Do nation in the history of the world. I love the excellent laptop computer, compact car and lime-mint lip balm that my culture has brought me. But when I let up even a little, the well-being just floods in. I can once again perceive the world that exists outside my plans. The color drains back into the landscape; the wind becomes audible in the trees.Life on the Wind River Indian Reservation is marked by poverty, violence, addiction, danger and wrongdoing in levels that can only be described as post-apocalyptic. The membrane between life and death is gossamer thin. But, still. There is softness and sweetness here, belly laughter I rarely hear elsewhere, and a vibrant spiritual life that thrives in part because it has to.I'm not saying Native Americans are perfect and that white people are bad. It's not personal. I'm saying that Native Americans -- and every other indigenous culture on the planet -- live in a rock tumbler of circumstance; the constant pounding has smoothed out their edges. As a middle class white person living in the heart of the richest culture in history, my edges are sharp and my expectations high. When I get stuck in traffic, I smack my steering wheel. I slug refrigerators on their innocent white sides.But I love -- LOVE -- being around the smooth-edged people. If I or my culture could surrender our dominion just a little bit, we'd live in a different world. I'm not talking about surrendering to drug cartels or terrorists. I'm talking about surrendering our dominion over every little thing; surrendering to inconvenience, lack of control, to taking the bus, to stopping in the middle of a spousal spat and deciding now is as good a time as any to start a ceasefire. This column is dedicated to those moments when, against the momentum of history, and even by accident, surrender happens.Lisa Jones is the author of BROKEN: A Love Story , the true tale of her friendship with quadriplegic Northern Arapaho horse gentler and traditional healer Stanford Addison.

We get $35 an hour so it would be $70 hereJust changed the water pump on my 2000 Chevy Malibu, but the engine still overheats. What can this be from?Air trapped in the cooling system. Check to see if there is a valve on top of the thermostat housing that you can unscrew and let out the trapped air. If that does not work then check that your fans come on. Worse case is that your head gasket or head is cracked that can lead to over heating when the combustion leaks into your cooling system and heats up the coolant too fast.I need bottom feeders that are too big to get sucked into a water pump, but not too big for a 29 gallon tank.?pleco there are many different kinds of pleco under a vast price range. bristle nosed pleco are a good medium size and not to expensive. I have two of them, one is albino. Others you may want to look at include farlowella, cory cat, coolie loach, whiptail catfish, and Otocinclus.Which water pump is more powerful between Kirloskar CBR 140 and Havells D1?You must see three specifications.kW or HPDischarge in liter per minute (LPM) or secondDischarge head or head pressure which is in meterNow for same kW and discharge head you compare discharge in LPM. Which ever is more, is better. This is generally comparable and no scope for much difference.You must select pump head pressure according to position of your over head tank. If it is three story than select 12 to 15 meter head pressure that will give you more LPM for same power. If you select more head pressure than LPM will reduce for same power.Which water pump is more powerful between Kirloskar CBR 140 and Havells D1?.95 Honda Accord EX 2.2L Vtec -- Any important info I need to be aware of when changing the water pump/timing?While BMWs do last forever I would really advise against buying a used car with more than 50,000 miles on it. If you try to sell the BMW in 5 years and it then has 120,000 miles on it, you will have a hard time getting more than $5000 for it. The repairs will also be more costly on the BMW, which it will likely need more of as it is an older car. Personally although I've only ever owned luxury cars, and certainly do enjoy them!, would go for the Honda. It is a smarter investmentMy water pump was leaking and replaced. Now the AC does not work and it was working fine before.?i used some product i've got been given at checker vehicle areas to "fix" a head gasket that grew to become into blown into the coolant device. that they had some distinctive types, some properly suited with coolant, some not. i've got been given the stuff that grew to become into properly suited with coolant. i am very sceptical on stuff like this, in spite of if it has labored so a procedures. i paid like $30 for it. i grew to become into surprisedWill my 115V water pump get damaged from a 120Vac power source?There's no problem running a 115V pump on 120V. Pump motors are designed to run between 110V and 125V
What Is Wrong with My Car?
Of course the problem is still there. Your mechanic did not fix your problem. Timing belt and water pump have no relation with poor acceleration. Consider this things; 1. Your fuel pump could be malfunctioning 2. fuel pump relay failing 3. poor spark plugs 4. poor wires 5. rotor failing 6. ignition coil malfunctioning Have this check and fix by a good mechanic. Hope this helps!1. How do I turn the water on in this house using this water pump?most of the time you have to prime the pump it's like dragging a water bed easiest way is to fill hose full of water and the suction of the water running out will pull the rest out. well a pump you have to fill it full of water so it can pull the water out... dry pump does not work2. Water pump, thermostat and two hoses plus coolant for 07 Toy Camry 4 cylinder?I suspect you are leaving out some parts. If your water pump is shot, you surely need a new belt, tensioner, and the things that you said. So add 80 for tensioner and 60 for a belt, and half an hour to replace the tensioner, belt should be included with water pump time. Still sounds high.3. Water pump question in fan clunth?Sounds to me like you still got an air pocket in the system that needs to be bled out. They can be a bugger to bleed sometimes! Yes, when you can fix the fan clutch. In my opinioin if the core is plugged, I do not think it will "mess up" the water pump again but whatever its plugged with will eventually be moving throughout the cooling system! Good Luck!4. I have a 1999 cavalier and it need a new head gasket and water pump?My daughter has just had the head gasket replaced on her car - it cost 500. She also had to fish out another 110 to an auto electrician as the water pump was leaking and blowing the fuses and corroding the wires to the central locking, clock and rear wipers. Her car is newer than yours with a lot less mileage but she intends replacing it as soon as she can. I agree with her I think like you she is throwing good money after bad. I suppose you could get a Haynes manual and see what you are up against if you want to have a go yourself. Good luck.5. Buying a 2001 Cavalier with owner never having to change the water pump: Okay or nay?no. at that millage you are going to have to expect some Maintenance. a Water pump is still considered Maintenance. dose it leak or make noise? if not i say drive it until it goes. replace it then. that engine has a Timing chain i think. if so you would want to go ahead and have that changed wile your at it. if its a timing belt then defiantly change it but i think that engine uses a chain if i am not mistaken. But water pumps are very simple parts. just a plate with an impeller on it. if it is not leaking or making nose then its fine. Water pumps do have a limited life span. if you are doing a timing chain or belt then you should go ahead and do the pump wile your at it just because they are located int eh same place and its far cheaper to do it all at one time. but if it inst leaking or making noise then i would not worry about changing it until it dose leak or make noise. just be a smart driver and never let the car over heat. i am not saying that it will. but when they day comes that pump dose leak you do not want to run the engine in the red zone on the temp gauge. avoid that at all cost. but no its no red flag. like i said. if it is not leaking or making noise then its fine. i have seen the impeller come off of one. but that is usually a result of not using the correct coolant for years. so just make sure you have the proper coolant in it and if it is not leaking or making noise you should be just fine
2005 Passat Flashing in Red " STOP" and a Little Water Or Gage on Left Starts Flashing When Idling?
VW's and AUDI's need only PENTOSIN COOLANT that is now ROSE COLORED and use to be PINK! POWER WASH engine and check fro LEAKS, esp around WATER PUMP! ALL VW's cars need a new WATER PUMP and TIMING BELT KIT at 100k mile INTERVALS! NEVER USE PRESTONE or tother GENERIC CHEAP COOLANTS that wil cost you HEATER CORES> if VALVOLINE orr other INAPPROPRIATE OIL was ever used ,HAVE YOUR THROTTLE BDOY and IDLE AIR CONTROVL VALVE cleaned up to SHOWROOM CLEAN! Since you did NOT check yoru FLUID LEVEL YOURSELF1. Tech Q&A: Correct Fan Switch LocationWhen monitoring your cooling system, take the temperature reading at the point where the coolant is hottest; on most American V8s, this is at or near the thermostat housing. The big-block in our C10 runs steady at 195 degrees, thanks to a PRC radiator and twin 16-inch fans from GC Cooling. Rick Miller, via email: I recently read somewhere about a car owner who plumbed a fan probe into his water pump with the fan switch set to turn on at 230 degrees. Would not the water pump be the wrong place to put it? I would think that by the time water coming from the radiator hits 230 degrees, the engine would be really hot. John McGann: Rick, you are absolutely right, and that engine probably was not long for this world with the fans set to trigger that way. Theoretically, the radiator outlet and water pump should be the "coolest" part of the car's cooling system when the engine is at operating temperature and the thermostat is open. In most of the cars we deal with, the water pump draws coolant from the outlet side of the radiator and pushes it into the engine block. Coolant travels through the block, up in to the cylinder heads, and out of the engine at the thermostat housing. From there, it goes back to the radiator to be cooled. The temperature probe should be plugged into the system where the coolant is hottest-generally, the thermostat housing, in the coolant passages adjacent to it, or in the water jacket of the cylinder heads. You mentioned a fan controller switch set to 230 degrees, and while several aftermarket controllers have a temperature range of between 150 and 240 degrees, I would never want to see coolant temperatures that high. Yes, most new cars operate at coolant temperatures of 200 to 220 degrees, but they do that with the benefits of a big radiator and modern electronic controls that adjust settings such as spark timing to compensate. One of the benefits of high coolant temperatures is that condensation and fuel contamination of the engine oil essentially boils out more easily, which leads to longer oil-change intervals and a reduced chance of sludge and engine deposits. Though you did not mention what kind of car you are referring to, since you are asking us at Car Craft, we are going to assume that it's an older one-and likely carbureted (something like my 1978 Malibu). In that car, I have a 170-degree thermostat, a seven-blade clutch fan, and the stock two-row radiator. It's a Gen I 350 with aluminum Trick Flow heads, 10.0:1 compression, and a standard HEI distributor running total timing of 32 degrees of ignition advance. I have a mechanical Auto Meter temperature gauge plumbed into the coolant passage adjacent to the thermostat housing. Around town, the engine generally runs at about 175 degrees. Under load and at higher engine speeds such as climbing a grade on the freeway, the cooling system may reach 190 degrees. Even on the hottest days, I've never seen coolant temperature higher than 200 degrees. The exception to all this is Chevy's LT1/LT4 engine family from the 1990s with reverse-flow cooling systems. In those engines, though, the water pump is attached to the engine block and pushes the coolant from the radiator into passages that route it up and into the cylinder heads first, flooding them with the coldest coolant. From there, coolant flows down into the block, where it reenters the pump through separate passages off to the radiator. Those water pumps have a coolant temperature sensor plumbed into the "hot" passage, measuring the temperature of the coolant just before it exits the pump on the way to the radiator. The thermostat is actually on the inlet side of the water pump. If the engine in question is an LT1, then putting a fan trigger here would correct, because it's sampling the hottest coolant in the cooling system. I would personally set the trigger temperature a bit lower than 230 degrees, however. In case you are wondering why Chevrolet would switch to a reverse-flow cooling system for this version of the small-block, it was done both for reduced emissions and better engine performance. Because the cylinder heads are the hottest part of the engine, this system was designed to maintain even and consistent cooling of the cylinder heads so the engine could safely run higher compression ratios (relative to its predecessors) and more ignition advance, and these engines did make more power and get slightly better gas mileage than the TPI engines they replaced.2. How much should I expect as an estimate on a new water pump?Call around and get some estimates they all should be close to each other. Its rather straight foward3. On a deisel motor in a boat why does it have coolant and a water pump?this is refered to as a fresh water cooling system. the engine has a coolant tank and a recirc pump that pumps the coolant through a tube and shell heat exchanger,just as a car does through a radiator. instead of air around the radiator, the exchanger has sea(lake)water pumped through it by a engine mounted pump or a pump on a outdrive if so equiped. the engine heat is transmitted from the engine coolant to the exchanger, and out to the sea(lake). this system has many advantages. one of the most important is the fact that salt or brackish water never touches the engine block or components, preventing costly corrosion. secondly it keeps the engine running at a more even or constant temp. this is very important to a diesel as the engine puts out its hp and performance at a set temp. the heat exchanger can have an automatic drain system, draining water out of it and with coolant (antifreeze) in the engine, the boat can be operated in freezing weather without freezing, or draining the block every night. Heat exchangers can be backflushed easier than an engine, and allow the boat to be operated in muddy or contaminated water. (I have seen boats with tandem exchngers in case one plugs up or needs cleaning). gasoline and diesel engines can have exchanger systems, but since diesels inherantly are more expensive and live longer, a heat exhanger system is worth while
