You might want to check the flush cylinder, to see if it has water in it. It has to be water free, that way the air in it, lets it go down easier, during fill up.

SOURCE: Kohler 1-piece flush valve seal replacement.

That is a tricky one. Tighten the tabs, twist into place, then tighten a bit more. They are a pain in the a$$, but with patience you will get it done. Good luck

SOURCE: The flush valve does stay open long enough after flushing

Which style of flush valve do you have? If it is the dual-flush option (solids/liquids) I do not know how to adjust those. If you have a traditional style, then the flapper or ball is closing too soon. You need to adjust the guide arm (flush ball) higher or shorten the chain between the flapper and the handle. Adjust this carefully or you will have it fail to seat and the toilet will constantly run.

I hope this helps.

I replaced my fluid master and now it will not stop filling in the tank.

Try lifting the float part of the valve. If the water stops filling, reset the float level lower.
If water does not stop when lifting the float, flush out the valve according to the instructions - steps 12 - 15.

12. IMPORTANT: Always clear sand and rust from system. Make sure

water supply is shut off. Remove valve TOP by lifting arm and rotating

top and arm 1/8 turn counterclockwise, pressing down slightly on cap.

13. While holding a container over the uncapped VALVE to prevent

splashing, turn water supply on and off a few times. Leave water

supply off.

14. Replace TOP by engaging lugs and rotating 1/8 turn clockwise. MAKE



15. Turn on water supply. Adjust water to desired level by squeezing water

level adjustment clip and moving FLOAT CUP up or down along stainless
steel link. Check for leaks, then check for proper flush.

If valve continues to run:


• There may be debris at seal - repeat Steps 12-15.

• The seal inside the valve top may be damaged -replace with genuine
Fluidmaster 242 seal.

My rockerarms are loose on my 2.2liter engine. how can i adjust them?

Adjust the valves when the lifter is on the base circle of a camshaft lobe:
  1. Crank the engine until the mark on the crankshaft pulley lines up with the O mark on the timing tab. Make sure that the engine is in the No. 1 firing position. Place your fingers on the No. 1 rocker arms as the mark on the crank pulley comes near the O mark. If the valves are not moving, the engine is in the No. 1 firing position. If the valves move, the engine is in the No. 4 firing position; rotate the engine one complete revolution and it will be in the No. 1 position.
  2. When the engine is in the No. 1 firing position, adjust the following valves: Exhaust - 1,3 Intake - 1,2
  3. Back the adjusting nut out until lash can be felt at the pushrod, then turn the nut until all lash is removed (this can be determined by rotating the pushrod while turning the adjusting nut). When all lash has been removed, turn the nut in 1 1 / 2 additional turns, this will center the lifter plunger.
  4. Crank the engine one complete revolution until the timing tab and the O mark are again in alignment. Now the engine is in the No. 4 firing position. Adjust the following valves: Exhaust - 2,4 Intake - 3,4

After the tank fills water contiues to flow thru

The fill valve needs replacement unless you can take the top off snd find out what is keeping it from closing. I had one I took apart for the same reason and found a piece of plastic in the valve seat. Good Luck, Ned

What is the procedure for replacing the flush valve assy on a san raphael toilet. it is a one piece tank and bowl assy and must install from the inside of the tank. it appears to possibly rotate into place...

If you purchase the flush valve from Kohler, it comes without instruction. Rotation is the key to removal. First note the exact orientation of the assembly before attempting removal. Unhook the flapper chain and remove the flapper. The old assembly does indeed rotate in either direction for removal. I used a counterclockwise motion. (it was a tough turn, don't break the bottom of the bowl where the valve seat is located.) Then install the new foam gasket on the assembly. The new assembly is replaced in the reverse manner. I removed the new flapper from the flush valve for ease of install. You must put significant downward pressure on the flapper seat while rotation is accomplished. Orient the assembly as was the old one. Replace the flapper, connect the chain and observe the flapper for proper opperation.

Airbag light flashes 4 times and pauses

browntoni22: the code it self is "Potential short in Air Bag system"
You are playing with Explosives!!!
Working on a safety restraint system can be very dangerous if you don't know what you are doing. There is a procedure to diagnose the problem which entails using a jumper wire for part of the diagnosis. Just as an example: emissionwiz mentioned a clock spring. This can be damaged by the installer very easily if they don't know what they are doing.
It is designed to rotate only so many revolutions. IF the installer was not paying attention and the clock spring had been out of the packing prior to their receiving it, it could have been rotated one or several revolutions. So when the installer puts the clock spring in place and goes to turn the steering wheel in one direction, it's fine but in the other direction, it will destroy the part!
Anyway, to sum it up in a nutshell, leave this job to a pro.
