What is the us president in charge of?

The President of the United States is the official head of the United States Government. Unlike the Queen of England and U.K., which is an hereditary, mostly figurehead position (nowadays), POTUS is not. The President is the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces, he has the power to send troops to anywhere in the world for a limited period of time, may also call into federal service the state units of the National Guard. In times of war or national emergency, the Congress may grant the president even broader powers to manage the national economy and protect the security of the United States. He appoints the members of the U.S. Supreme Court, and the Cabinet Secretaries (equivalent to the Prime Minister and of Ministers of office in other countries). He can issue awards, receive other foreign heads of state, offer diplomatic recognition of other states, can issue rules, regulations, and instructions called executive orders, which have the binding force of law upon federal agencies but do not require congressional approval. He also has the sole right to authorize the use of nuclear weapons. He also has power of clemency--he can pardon sentences and commute sentences. he president appoints ambassadors, ministers, and consuls--and receives ambassadors and other foreign officials to the U.S. The President is responsible for the protection of Americans abroad and of foreign nationals in the United States. He also can declare a state of emergency. He has the ability to withhold information from the public, Congress, and the courts in matters of national security.

How do you relieve the fuel system pressure on a 1998 Kia?

On the 99 Kia Sephia 1.8L, on the fuel rail under the hood, there is what looks like a service port. It kinda looks like a valve that you would fill a bicycle tire up with air, it also might have a light ble cap on it. press in the pin like you would let the air out of a tire. (CAUTION) use gloves and eye protection cause this part of the fuel system is pressurized. Some fuel will squirt out but will evaporate soon, faster on a hot day. Hold pin until fuel doesn't squirt anymore. (NOTE) Before starting your car next time, cycle the fuel pump by turning your key to the on position a caouple of times.

How do you replace alternator belt 2000 kia sephiacant get the power steering off?

I just recently had to replace mine. You have to loosen a few bolts. There are 2 at the bottom, one at top, and one on the side facing the front of car. The one on the side is to loosen and tighten the belt but you have to first loosen the first three I mentioned before. The one at top, you have to turn the powersteering pully to access this bolt. After that..just takes some good old fashion elbow grease. Hope this all helps.

Clutches and Flywheels

How do you change a 2001 Kia clutch?

It's not an easy job! You have to disconnect the tie rods from the wheel spindles. Then you pull the CV shafts out of the gearbox. Then disconnect the speedometer cable and any other wires or sensors. You'll then disconnect the clutch linkage and start removing the bolts holding the transmission to the engine (they will go around the transmission in a circle). Once those are out, you should be able to pull the transmission away from the engine.

There will be 5 main components to a manual transmission clutch system:

1. Flywheel: This is the engine side of the setup. It's like a brake rotor and the pressure plate is bolted to this.

2. Pressure plate: This is bolted to the flywheel on the engine.

3. Clutch disk: This is sandwiched between the flywheel on the engine and the pressure plate. It is this device that transfers motion and torque therefore making the actual connection between the engine and the transmission / wheels.

4. Throwout bearing: This presses up against the fingers on the pressure plate to engage/disengage the clutch

5. Pilot bearing: This sits behind the flywheel and is actually pressed into the back of the crankshaft.

You'll want to unbolt the pressure plate from the engine flywheel. The clutch plate should pretty much fall down when you take it off... Examine the springs on the pressure plate, are any broken? if you shake it, does it rattle? How is the surface? It should be shiny like a brake rotor and free of gouges and rust. If not, you'll need to replace it. If it looks ok, get a can of brake cleaner and spray it down to clean it up. set it aside.

Look at the flywheel. It also should look smooth with no gouges or major deep lines. If, so, it needs to come off to be machined (not an easy job).

There are many ways to remove a pilot bushing from a crankshaft. I prefer the wet toilet paper method. If you stick your finger inside the center of the flywheel, you'll feel the pilot bushing. Wad up a handful of wet toilet paper and stuff it in the hold slowly. Then take a wooden dowel and hammer it into the toilet paper in the center, if all goes well, the toilet paper will force it's way under the pilot bushing and squeeze it out. Clean out the pilot bearing hole and replace with a new one.

ALWAYS REPLACE THE THROWOUT BEARING! Look at the back of the transmission. There should be a throwout bearing sitting in a clip on the shaft. Remove this and replace it with a new one. Lube the part of the shaft that the pilot bearing travels on with antiseize.

Get a clutch alignment tool that matches your clutch tooth arrangement and put the new clutch disk on it. Slide the disk and alignment tool into the flywheel and also the pilot bushing. It should line up and sit nicely.

Then take your pressure plate and line it up with the mounting holes on the flywheel over the clutch and alignment tool. tighten loosely. Once all bolts are in place, torque them to at least 60 PSI in a star pattern. You now should be able to remove the clutch alignment tool and the clutch should stay in place between the flywheel and the pressure plate.

Line your transmission shaft up with the hole and gently slide it in through the pressure place, through the clutch plate, through the flywheel and into the pilot bushing. You must keep the transmission level w/the engine or you'll mess up the clutch plate alignment and need to loosen the pressure plate to re-align it again. Once it's lined up and flush, replace the bolts following the same torquing procedure as above. Grab the clutch fork and try to move the clutch by hand (it should be possible on that car). It should be hard, but not impossible. It should be pretty quiet w/ no squeaks. Attach all cables and clutch linkage. Test the clutch from inside the car. It should engage and disengage quietly with no major friction. Insert axles and reconnect to the spindles. Attach tie rods. Make sure everything is tight.

Test out the car and clutch. If it's slipping, or engaging too close to the floor, you may need to adjust the linkage.

Chevy Corvette
Check Engine Light

Could it be the air pump or is it more likely to be something else 1985 Corvette runs rough when it is cold and check engine light comes on?

You need to find out the code that is bringing in the check engine light. To do this- under the dash on the drivers side to the right is a computer connector. Turning the key on and shorting out the top right connectors will cause the cooling fan to start and the check engine light to flash. It will read a code 12 3 times( count the flashes with a small delay beween each flash followed by a long delay) followed by the fault repeated 3 times. Your question is too vague to have a good response to. Any number of things could bring in an alarm- O2 low, MAF,EGR operating,TPS low or high voltage,etc. I suggest you find the code and ask another question. You might find the answer is in the code.
