Why does the left side cv keep throwing off boot when it is new I have replaced it 2 times don't get more then 50 ft from the drive what could be causing this?
You might want to check how it is installed and if it is installed correctly. If it is installed correctly, then take it in to a mechanic, and have it looked at. chances are, if the boot is brand new, it might be the car. who knows. Some boots require a special tool to properly tighten the clamps, without that tool it can't be installed correctly.

What is causing your 1995 Toyota Previa spark plugs to not spark?
Your 7.5A ignition fuse keeps blowing in my 1990 Toyota celica?
You have a short to ground or a bad connection that is causing the circuit to "draw" too many amps, causing the fuse to go out. This will be hard to diagnose. Sometimes the wires in the distributer module area inside the distributer cover will crack with age and allow the spark out to ground. Could be a bad module or igniter module on firewall. Do you have an aftermarket alarm? did they chop into your ignition circuit to add an engine kill? That is often a cause. check your battery clamps first. If there is a crustiness, that will cause a current problem. Always check your battery before all else. 9 out of 10 it originates there. Good luck. sounds like mechanic time...

What is a self-adjusting brake kit?
The self adjuster brake kit is replacement hardware for the adjuster for the brake shoes. If there is a problem with the adjuster it might allow the brakes to back off causing a brake failure. If you are changing this yourself be aware there is a left and right side, if these are mixed up or not installed correctly you will have a brake failure. Best to leave it to a qualified mechanic.

Why does your riding mower leave an uncut strip down the middle?
probably center blade on deck is jambed, or blade is broken and or missing I am having the same problem with may 42" Scott's riding mower. The blades are new (there are only 2 blades , no center blade) and are installed properly. The belt is also new and installed properly. The uncut middle area is more predominant in thicker or taller grass. In the center of the front of the mowing deck is a roller (to keep the deck from bottoming out ) which may be causing the grass to flatten and not be cut. If anyone else has had this problem and has a solution I would be interested in it.

What causes water pipes to rattle?
It's called water hammer. It's caused when a valve is sudden opened or closed. It's usually happens with fixtures that draw large amounts of water like washing machines. You can install water hammer arrestors near the fixtures that are causing the problems. They were not strapped properly when installed. Pipe isn't properly fastened to keep it from knocking. An anti-hammer arrester installed in cold water line should help eliminate knocking. The knocking caused by sudden burst of water pressure in line when a valve or faucet is opened.

What do you do if you installed a 128 mb geforce 5200 graphic card in your dell xps txxx machine which originally had a 32 mb card now everything is fine but when you play DVD you do not get the movie?
Check the INSTALLED CARD ... make sure its connected properly and then after booting up your machine try to do "Add Hardware" from a "Control Panel" and then make sure that your System recognizes it properly ... Then un-install DVD player and install it again. Sometimes the connection gets loose in the process of installing other hardware and this may be causing it not to run properly. Check the "Jumple Cable" of DVD whether its Master, Slave or Cable Select ... I used to have similar kind of problem and I could fix it this way .... Right now I can think of this solution only.
Why would your car start putting along when you push the accelerator after the vehicle gets warm but be perfectly fine if its cooled down?
Engines require 3 things to run properly air, fuel and spark. Any time an engine is not running properly something is causing one of these things to be out of spec. The car should be tested when warm so that the symptoms can be duplicated. Heat causes material to expand. There may be a small vacuum leak that increases in size as the engine heats up. It also causes an increase in electrical resistance so you may have to replace spark plug wires or a distributer etc.
