Can anyone tell me what solvent will dissolve it? Do I use thinners, acetone, methylated spirits, turpentine, rubbing alcohol or some else? I don't want to keep wasting money buying expensive solvents in the hope they will work, and would rather just buy the right one first, so thats why I'm asking here.Thanks in advance for any advice.

  • Why is my car hard to start when cold but otherwise runs fine?

    Its a 1998 model SB Barina, (Corsa B) with an opel engine. Its fuel injected. It starts fine when warm, and still idles and runs smooth once it starts, and, is not underpowered at all (other than the obvious standard underpowered condition of a 1.4litre engine, that is! DOH!!) When its cold, it takes a long time before it starts, it just keeps turning over for ages and then when it finally fires it coughs and splutters and sounds like it is running on 2 or 3 cylinders for 10 or 15 secs before running fine from then on. I did a check on the codes and all I gotr was a faulty oxygen sensor which I have since replaced, but it made no difference to the starting. I checked the code again and it says the oxygen sensor is working now. I'm thinking maybe leaking injector/s dripping fuel into the manifold making it too rich and not firing till the excess fuel is out of the cylinder. I am not sure how to check this, and I was hoping some mechanics out there might give me some other things to check. It is embarrassing in the morning when all the neighbours hear me taking ages to get it going. Thanks in advance for any advice.

I was thinking about some sort of smooth metal plate that the wheel could roll on and not wear out so fast. Or maybe I could cut a trench in the concrete and fill it up level with fibreglass resin, which would dry smooth and stop the wheel wearing out. Has anyone solved this problem and how did you do it?

I cant work out how to have 2 seperate iTunes accounts, it wont let me, and it is causing all sorts of problems, and trying to erase everything on the phone and replace it with the library on the computer, which I dont want obviously, because we have completely different tastes in music! And it seems there are even further problems with my apps, it doesnt seem like you can have different lists, just the one, and everytime either of us wants to sync, we have to go through manually checking and unchecking the apps everytime, which is a right PITA!!! I have tried signing out of his account and signing into my own, but anything I download still wants to go into the same library as all of his stuff. This is pi**ing me right off to the point of having visions of strangling Steve Jobs!!! Any help greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    I am normally a strong person and can get over most things and move on, but there is one small issue that seems to dog me and I dont know what to do about it. I went out with a girl from age 13 to age 19, and I loved her very much, but we broke up and moved on. I have had many girlfriends since, and have been married for 19 years, and she is married with a family too. The problem is I still have dreams about walking along the beach with her and stuff like that, and even though the last time I saw her was 15 years ago, I am always looking out for her at the mall and such, hoping to see her again. Dont get me wrong, I love my wife, and would never go back with this other girl. I believe somehow that she was my soulmate, but I took her for granted because I was young and naive about how to treat people , as I matured I have learned how wrong I was and have changed my ways, sometimes I wish I could just apologise for the way I treated her, and that would at least be a load of my mind.
