Check fluid levels first. Also look for leaks under your regular parking spot.

Is there a recorder that allows to record or download videos from footytube? Something like a footytube recorder? Footytube files are flvs so I would also like to convert them in a more usual format that I can play on my mobile phone for example – 3gp? So I guess I am looking for something like a footytube downloader or recorder which can also convert from flv to 3gp or mp4?

Dear sir or madam, for the last 5 days every time I turn on my laptop Im getting this message, An Important Choice To Make: Your Browser. It then gaves me 5 choices, Safari, Firefox, Opera, Google Chrome and Internet explorer 8. Im confused, I already have Internet Exployer 8 if I choose one of these options will it replace Internet Explorer 8 or run along side it? Which one will be my main browser, and will the second choice effect my email and my favorites? If I don't want a second browser how do I stop this message appearing every time I turn on my laptop? Thanks Sammy.

I prefer Firefox but no, it won't replace IE unless you make it your default browser. Even then, you will still be able to use IE.

I want to install adobe flash player but there's a message saying, you must close all other browser windows before installing. What does this mean? Keep it simple. Yours truly Sammy.

There is possibly another problem with an application falsely reporting that it is running in the background. It's probably not IE. If you are trying to install adobe, try removing any previous versions first. There is a flash remover located on their site which may help you. Before you proceed try download.com and get malwarebytes, ccleaner, and avast antivirus if you suspect your AV and other software to not be performing well. Do all of the scans first, try installing flash, then if that doesn't work, get the flash remover run it and try installing flash again and I am certain this will help you. Good luck.

How long does it take to change the starter motor on a Yamaha yzfr1 motorbike?

Discuss this question

Question found in Motorcycles
Sorry I haven't answered this earlier. You will likely have to remove a section of the fairing to get to the starter. I am not experienced with this bike but many yamaha's have the starter located in the front of the engine and it is likely behind the fairing and radiator if your bike has one. I would say that it could take about a day if you're cautious and with the help of a "Clymer" manual. these manuals are brand specific and can guide you through this procedure. They are located on the Internet and in bike shops. I hope this was of help to you.

My Mazda 121 is coughing and jerking like the fuel cant get through and today the heat and charge lights came on - temperate was at it's highest - do you know what is wrong with it?

Discuss this question

Question found in Auto Diagnostics
The heat problem can effect performance. Thermostat, auto fan operation, etc. Let it cool and try replacing your thermostat and check for any leaks which can also be the water pump failing. This would be where to start. Good luck.

Right on! since posting the question I have taken the car to a mechanic - it was the water pump! Many thanks :o)

I've Got a Honda cbr 929, I've got a rattle coming from the front of the bike, I think its the exhaust valve, the noise is worse when moving, what could cause this?

Discuss this question

Question found in Motorcycles
Your instincts are probably correct. If you have not adjusted the valve clearances this may fix it. Usually when adjustment is needed, the bike will start hesitating at high revs or sputter at high speeds. I would look into that initially as it may be a simple fix.

I have a 07 Chevy Malibu. When I brake my car and steering wheel shakes, also when I accelerate 65+ my car shakes. What would you recommend is the issue?

Discuss this question

Question found in Auto Repair
This sounds as if the front rotors, if you have disc brakes, are overheating and warped. Could also be in need of repacking front wheel bearings as when overheated they tend to lose grease. Both are pretty easy to do but will require a little knowledge of front end systems.
