Same thing happened to me on 1998 intrigue. Also in snowy and freezing conditions. The link here attributed the problem to water freezing in the Wiper moter assembly

Maybe it will start working when it thaws out?


Wrong. Your windshield wiper motor is mounted to a bracket that has a little metal tab on it that the crank arm assembly has to hit in order to park the wipers, in a lot of cases this park tab in either bent or broken, and if bent can be adjusted.

This happens if the wipers encounter too much stress, such as trying to wipe when they are frozen in ice. The tab can be easily bent back, if you can get to the wiper motor.

Can you run Total Annihilation on 32 bit Vista?

Althought windoew vista doesn't support 16 bit applications, you can run Totala on vista.However, the installation files of Totala are on 16 bit (not supported by vista) Therefore, you need to install the game on a 16-bit compatible Operating system (xp works fine)You just need to copy the installed folder to your vista computer. The whole game is self contained in a single folder, so you can move easily from machine to machine. You can even run it straignt from a CD-Rom or a flash drive.

Should blue-gray marks all over your spa and pool plaster be coverd under warranty on a 3 month old pool?

If it is the plaster discoloring then the plaster company should fix it. If you let your chemicals get out of balance it is your own fault. The blue/gray marks can be from your leaf skimmer - it has an aluminum frame- so when you scoop it leaves marks especially if you are using it with the net inverted. But those gray marks are only about as wide as a pencil and close to a straignt line. Broad marks indicate poor chemical maintenance. Your problem not the builder. k

Are the seasons on earth caused by an elliptical orbit around the sun?

No. The seasons are caused by the Earth being tipped to one side. In winter the part of the Earth having winter is the farthest from the Sun and the Sun's rays strike it at a very low angle, meaning that the rays are weaker. In summer, the part of the Earth having summer is closest to the Sun, and the Sun's rays strike it straignt on, meaning the rays are stronger. You can see from this that while the northern part of Earth is tipped toward the Sun, and is having summer, the southern part of Earth is tipped away from the Sun, and is having winter.

Why would a 1996 Ford Windstar have a squeaking noise from the front end when turning?

It usually indicates warn tie rod ends. My 98 was doing that same thing. They can't be greased, only replaced. My 2000 squeaked when I turned. The power steering fluid had become as thick as glue. Cost me $300 to clean it out. Apparently they produce a lot of heat and cook the stuff. I now change it once a year. BTW-transmission fluid gets thick faster on these too. The squeak you describe could be another expression of the same issue addressed here where the upper strut mount gets a spacer per a ford recall, or just a complete replacement (due to wear). Enjoy, Ben you can make a small hole with a screw drive pick and put some tri flow i had the same problem and since then stop... My '98 had the same issue on the right front wheel (passenger) when turning to the left. There is a flat plastic panel attached to the suspension rail. It bends down toward the wheel with use...probably due to heat. when the panel touches the wheel during a left turn, then you get an ungodly noise coming from that side which gives you the impression there is a steering issue. There is no steering issue...just that plastic panel. take it off and throw it away or replace it with a new straignt one. or just heat bend it back into shape with a torch. I did this last year and it was fine for a year and am doing it again today.

What are the comparative advantages and disadvantages of electric and solar water heaters?

Solar hot water heaters need sunlight to work. While you can store the heat and create closed loop systems that protect the system from freezing, the use of solar hot water heaters really makes sense if you have full sun exposure and are willing to moderate your usage. It also may cost more to install a domestic solar hot water system. These can run on 12v oe 11v for the pump, or you could go passive- there are many different types and options. Check Home Power mag. Electric hot water systems come in two flavors; tank and tankless. For electric tank systems, the cost of heating water with electricity can be quite large. These tank heaters store hot water and are using electricity just to keep the tank warm. This is not very efficient even with insulating blankets. Once you run out of hot water in the tank(as cold rushes in) your shower is over. The heater itself is usually inexpensive. Plumbing is straignt foward, with 30 to 40 amp 220V feed required. Tankless water heaters or "on demand" water heaters (both gas and electric) are fantastic! They are the least expensive to operate, and fairly simple to install. The electric tankless heater requires no exhust ducting and is perfect for under the counter usage or with larger units can heat the water for an entire home. The tankless design never runs out of water! These are perfect for solar installations that may encounter weeks of cloudy weather. The units are more expensive than tank heaters, and usually require 220v service (if electric). if your doing reseach on this great if not get a life losers

What is the history on working a Savage Arms 380 cal?

If this is a Savage automatic pistol, there were three models, all available in both .32 and .380. The model 1907 and the model 1917 work the same way, while the "hammerless" model 1915 works a little differently. Load the magazine and insert it in the pistol. Move the safety lever from SAFE to FIRE (or, for very early model 1907s with unmarked frames, move the safety lever from pointing straight back (SAFE) to pointing straight down (FIRE). Pull the slide straight back to chamber the first round (these have heavy recoil springs, so there will be significant resistance) and release the slide. Point and shoot. If the round fails to correctly chamber, carefully pull the slide back again and remove the round. You may have to remove the magazine to do this. FIELD STRIPPING To field strip a model 1907 or 1917, made sure the pistol is unloaded, and pull the slide all the way back and move the safety lever from FIRE to SAFE. This will hold the slide open. Hold the cocking burr or cocking spur (depends on model) back all the way back and, while holding it, turn the entire breechblock 90 degrees to the RIGHT. Still holding the cocking burr/spur back, pull the breechblock straight back -- the entire part will come out of the pistol. Release the safety lever, and pull the slide forward. You may have to squeeze the trigger to allow the slide to move past the sear trip. The barrel and recoil spring will just lift out once the slide is off. Reverse the steps to reassemble the pistol. It is important NOT to try and turn the breechclock to the LEFT, or to reassemble the pistol with the breechblock turned to the LEFT. At best it will not fit or turn -- at worst, it will jam and be extremely difficult to remove or unjam. The model 1917 grips are held in with a screw on each side (no screws are used anywhere in the models 1907 and 1915, and these are the only screws in the model 1917!). Carefully remove the screw and slide the grip straight back. The "hammerless" model 1915 is a little different, since it has no cocking burr/spur. If the correct magazine is used, the slide will stay open when all the rounds in the magazine have been fired (model 1907 & 1917 magazines will also work, but will not lock open the slide). The slide release is on the front right side of the slide. The pistol will also not fire unless the grip safety is depressed. Again, pull the slide all the way back, and move the safety lever from FIRE to SAFE to lock open the slide. Grasp the breechblock and pull it straight back and turn it 90 degrees to the RIGHT. Once it is turned, pull the breechblock straignt back to extract it from the pistol. Otherwise, field stripping and reassembly is the same as the model 1907 & 1907. GRIP REMOVAL Be careful removing the grips, especially original grips. Unless you are intending to disassemble the pistol beyond field stripping (ie, work on the safety lever, on the grip safety on the model 1915, etc) it is a good idea to leave original grips alone. There is significant risk of damaging them if too much force is applied. The stamped metal grips used on the model 1907 in 1908 and 1909 bend easily, while the hard rubber grips that replaced them starting in 1909 have usually hardened over the years and become brittle; they will break easily if bent. If you need to remove the grips, it is a good idea to check the pistol to see if a previous owner used glue or some other adhesive to help hold them on, or if many years of crud have built-up around and behind the grips and is acting like an adhesive. Remove the magazine and put one or two fingers inside the magazine well, on the back of the magazine, and your thumb on the outside of the grip. The metal grips are just held in with friction and will slide straight back. The hard rubber grips that replaced them starting in 1909 (and were also used on the model 1915) have a small raised section on the inside rear of the grip that fits into a shallow slot in the frame. Carefully push the back of the grip out slightly and slide the grip straight back. This is the point in removel where the rubber grips are most commonly broken. Aftermarket grips are installed the same as the hard rubber grips, but normally are still flexible. The model 1917 grips are held in with a screw on each side (no screws are used anywhere in the models 1907 and 1915, and these are the only screws in the model 1917!). Carefully remove the screw and slide the grip straight back. Factory installed special order grips (mother-of-pearl, etc) for all Savage models are normally held on with a screw on each side, similar to the model 1917. Use extreme caution if removing these, since they are extremely fragile and almost impossible to replace.
