What would cause the rotors on a 99 grand Cherokee to warp and how can you test them to be sure?

Discuss this question

Question found in Auto Repair
The rotors get hot after each use and it will lead to the metal warp. It is very common among rotor systems on the front of Jeeps. You can have the repair shop "turn" the rotors but you also should routinely rotate and balance your tires, grease the joints in the front end and if you are like me, try to stay off of the brakes for extremely long periods such as long downhill drives where you have to sit on the brakes to keep your speed down. I have owned several Jeeps and they all have this problem eventually. A Jeep is a fine SUV, but you have to rotate, balance and grease. Turning the rotors is actually a test in itself because while the rotor is on the machine it will show the warp. The machine will cut the offending metal down to a more true shape and it can get expensive. It is similar to putting an old LP record on the turntable and placing a cutting device in place of the needle so it would smooth out the grooves. I hope this helps.

My 14 yr old Sheltie has always been very active. I think he went a little overboard yesterday playing with his ball outside because it was such a nice day out. Now he hurts around his neck and shoulder area. Is there something I can give him for the pain that I have here as I don't have a car to get out?

Question found in Dogs In General
Check with your vet or pharmacy. They will often be able to recommend something. most likely, the dog has arthritis and along with the increased activity and age, this should get better in a few days. also try raising your dogs food and water bowls to a comfortable level. This way the dog doesn't have to reach so far to eat and it will sometimes reduce the pain in the neck compounded by trying to swallow.

Does bad ball-joints on a 99 grand Cherokee cause the steering wheel to shake and the tires on the inside to go bald?

Discuss this question

Question found in Auto Repair
I have read that Jeep has occasionally found this shaking to be the result of worn wheel bearings as well. JGC is a good vehicle but rotating and balancing your tires and wheels are recommended at least every oil change interval. It is also not a bad idea to keep a frequent check on your brake pads especially the front since they normally wear faster than the rear brakes.

What are high level skills?

Discuss this question

Question found in Jobs & Careers
It depends mostly on the company you are dealing with and the type of business it is. A few important skills you will most likely need: College or equivalent work experience in a specific field such as 15 years as a General Manager at a familiar company or middle management somewhere like in a large customer service-oriented business. AT&T, Dell, even some mom & pops are quite large and have had to expand into corporate settings.

The goal is to not have limited people skills including written and oral, (speaking to large groups). Have a proven record of moving up the ladder to middle or upper management and proven supervisory skills. Experience with large budgets, (millions, not thousands), and business management training is a definite plus. A proven history or continued education in math, English, typing, computer software such as excel, wordperfect, etc,. are also necessary.

In today's workforce, everything is technical and revolves around helping the customer. If you are college trained, it doesn't necessarily indicate you have the practical skills needed to "go out into the world" just yet. Many companies want college and work-related skills combined so that they don't have to worry about training you for any length of time. I hope this helps.

Can we improve the standard of living in developing countries?

Discuss this question

Question found in Miscellaneous
Yes we can. The only problem is that these countries will "bite the hand that feeds them" once they are self-sufficient. Look at Iraq. We aren't over there to cause the collapse of this country, we are there to remove the thugs, murderers, thieves that want to kill innocent people.

My boyfriend of three years had a brief (three time) sexual encounter with the landlady of his best friend. He confessed this to me and expected me to end the relationship. I didn't. He swore that the guilt was eating him alive and he told me all. All of this took place one year ago. BUT he still likes to go over to her house to drink beer and play video games. I stay at his house four nights a week, but on one of the other nights, usually Monday, he will go to her house for the video games. If he gets too drunk he sleeps over on her couch. He always calls me first to tell me he is going over there. He vows he loves me and wants to marry me, but how can I trust him completely again? Or should I?

Question found in Dating
I am a guy and all of us guys are dogs. Being a dog, I also have a 24 year old daughter and if she were in your shoes, I would certainly try to convince her that this guy is still seeing the landlady and that she is in serious denial about the whole thing.

If he uses the excuse of sleeping on the couch, drinking with her or playing video games it means that he isn't with you because of her. His confession may have been out of guilt but now that the guilt is off of his shoulders, it is now on yours. Why would you put up with such a person?

When a person has an excuse, (not to be confused with an explanation), for every bad thing that they do, you should run screaming as fast and as far away from them as possible. The old saying, " fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me", rings true here if you have given all of the facts in your question here.

A young person will sometimes try to justify their being with someone similar to this guy you are talking about even though it is wrong and will not change his behavior. There is someone out there who will treat you right because you are worth more than you give yourself credit for. Don't try so hard looking for true love, it will find you whether you want it to or not. This guy is cheating and you know it. I am truly sorry but this is true. I hope this helps you.

I had my father bought an HP pavillion dv6000 in the middle east. When he send it here in the Philippines, the right alt doesn't work correctly. Sometimes it is translated as ctrl+alt. Another thing is that when I press my apostrophe, it won't be displayed unless I type another key again. How do I fix it to be a normal keyboard?

Question found in Hardware
Sounds like some of the keys are sticking. It may just need cleaning by using compressed air or with contact cleaner, both of which you can get almost anywhere. The instructions on the can are pretty straight-forward.

Comments :
I actually found the solution myself. It was in the Regional and Language Options. My default input language is United States-International which is not supposed to be. It should be in US.

I have been waking up with a dry mouth. I think I am breathing through my mouth. Is this the cause? What can I do about it?

Discuss this question

Question found in Personal Health Issues
More likely you may also be snoring as well. If you sleep on your back, it's common to snore and if you are coming down with a cold or if you are running a fever, it's possible this is the reason. Also, new medications and not getting enough liquids during the day will cause it. It's fairly common. I hope this helps.

Steering wheel shakes when brakes are applied at highway speed and inner part of front tires are bald on my 99 grand Cherokee?

Discuss this question

Question found in Auto Repair
I have my 3rd grand cherokee, this is common among them. If you will have your tires/wheels rotated and balanced each time you have your oil changed, it will reduce the shaking. Sometimes, in JGC's there can be excessive wear on the front wheel bearings which aggravates the problem.
