On a 1996 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme if the plunger in the rear brake caliper will not go in so you can change the brake pads and the C-clamp will not work what should you do?
IT WON'T COMPRESS BECAUSE THE PISTON HAS TO BE SCREWED BACK IN WHILE COMPRESSING THE PISTON AT THE SAME TIME - THAT IS ALSO HOW THE BRAKE'S (BRAKE PEDDLE) IS ADJUSTED.ALSO THEY MAKE SPECIAL TOOLS TO DO THAT - IF YOU REALLY NEED THEM.& ALSO THE BLEEDER SCREW SHOULD BE LOOSENED (if calipher is removed) so as NOT TO PUSH COMTAMINATED FLUID BACK INTO THE (ANTI-LOCK) SYSTEM (if equiped) & NOT TO PUSH BAD FLUID BACK INTO THE MASTER CYLINDER.

Which is better for a toothache A cold or hot compress?
I have just learned that if you have an infection you should NOT use heat. The reason being is that it draws the infection out, and encourages it to spread. Cold is the way to go if you are going to use a compress (although it may be difficult. I know that a warm compress has helped me more than a cold compress.) ...

Is there any 3 stroke engine?
No. How could there be? The "stroke" of an engine is the piston going up or down. If the spark plug fires and piston goes down, then up,and then fires again, then it's a two-stroke engine. IN a 4-stroke engine, the spark plug fires, piston does down, then up to exhaust the cylinder, then down to suck in fresh air and cool the cylinder, and up again to compress, and the spark plug fires every other "up". How could you have a...

What are valves for on a motor?
A internal combustion engine works by exploding fuel inside a confined space, over the top of a piston. first the explosion pushes down the piston then the piston has to come up again. For this to able to take place there has to be a way for the fuel to get into the space over the piston and a way for the burnt gas to get out again. So a system of valvesUsually two valves for each piston (although sometime it...

How a 350 engain works?
The gas Engine is a 4 stroke engine, Nother words the piston must make 4 stroke's to run. Here's the 4 strokes. Entake, compression, power and exhaust When you turn the engine over with the starter a piston starts moving, As it starts going down the intake valve starts opening witch lets air and fuel come into the cylinder. That's the intake stroke. When the piston is compleatly down the intake and exhaust valves are closed, When the piston starts back up it...

Asked in Volvo S40
You cant push the piston on your rear brakes back in on my 02 Volvo s40?
Sounds like a siezed piston. This occurs typically from two causes. Either the piston is not aligned perfectly with the cylinder bore or there is corrosion on the cylinder walls behind the piston preventing it from going into the bore. Brake fluid is hydoscopic, meaning it attracts & absorbs water. If the fluid is not changed at the recommended intervals, any moisture in the fluid will cause corrosion in the brake lines, cylinders, etc. The solution is to remove and rebuild or...
