RE: Help! Onan 4K generator refuses to start and stay on

Do you have MORE than a 1/4 tank of gas?

RE: Ford V10 vs Chevy Gas

i had 20 years experience with a fleet service consisting of cargo vans. the v10 plug issues are from early days. we got 300k trouble free miles out of v10s post 2005, same with the 5.4 from late 90s thru early 2000s. bullet proof engine that loves to drink gas. don't get me started on ford diesels after the older 7.3 diesel. i have no experience with chevy and dodge Time Cert is an aftermarket spark plug repair kit for Ford engines. The kit instructions state that it covers 4-6-8-10 cylinder Ford engines from 1993 to 2004.

RE: Teacher's Pet

Please pace yourself and don't be too hasty. It would be easy to get taken advantage of while dealing with your grief. Get advice from others that you trust, so often we hear stories of widows being swindled. I lost a girlfriend to cancer in 1992 and later realized I was in a fog for over a year after. Just something to think about, Wish you well.

RE: Towing with a dolly

If computer is confused you might have to remove a battery cable then reconnect to reset. My Smartphone is ALWAYS confused!

RE: 1972 Ford RV - Can't find any info

A money pit!!! Just price a new set of tires and you are in deep. Also what will you do for a title?

RE: New RVer with some diesel fuel issues.

The good news is you have found the problem and it is minor. With the right cleaning you should be back on the road.

RE: Wanderlust

Ford invented the phrase "Keeping it between the ditches!". A lot of info on here about poor balance- light frontend and steering modifications.

RE: FORD 460 Overheating Mystery

Just another wild guess, partially stopped up muffler. ???

RE: 88 Ford 460 keeps dying

Your engine temp is too low, you need the correct thermostat. That can cause bogging issues also.

RE: 88 Ford 460 keeps dying

Tank venting system failing not letting tank breathe. ??? When it quits open gas cap and listen for vacuum.

RE: First time out problems

Possible you have a stopped up muffler. ???

RE: Back fire and power loss

I had the same thing with a 1983 Winnie 7.4 that I used to have (sold in 2001) and I can't remember what the problem was. ??? But I do remember it was associated with the distributor. Could have been with the advance or ignition trigger or trigger wiring. Should still be HEI distributor, BEST non-computer ignition system ever made!

RE: O2 Sensors in 8.1 litre W22 Workhorse

Always find an OEM part number then google the number and you will find other sources cheaper. Any of the replaced sensors have a warranty?

RE: Generator vapor locking

You should be able to check the switch just by unplugging it. Mr Gasket sells different psi fuel pumps and you can get them at most auto parts stores. They even make a diesel fuel pump (green), I have one for the lift pump on my farm tractor.

RE: I'm buying one (surprise)

Generator needs more than 1/4 tank of gas to run, check gauge. Safety feature so you can't park and run out of gas. Water, either fitting broken from freeze or drain open still open. ???

RE: 2008 Itasca catalytic converter & pipe stolen

CAT buyers are thick on FB Market place in my area. Too bad they don't put VIN numbers on Cat Converters! New vehicle dealers get hit a lot too.

RE: FORD 460 Overheating Mystery

To check head gasket you do a compression check. Has the timing been checked to see if it is correct? Possible advance problem, vacuum hose?

RE: fluxuating oil pressure gage

The first thing I would do is "T" in a mechanical gauge and mount it somewhere in the engine bay to confirm problem is not the engine.

RE: gps for the MH which one

I have a Garmin and it has sent me down dead end roads, had me make 4 right turns and come back to where I was! I never really trusted. I got a smart phone last summer with google maps and love it. I had trouble with it NOT talking in my 2016 SUV and found I need to turn off bluetooth for it to talk. My 2004 PU does not have hands free and phone talks great.
