Hello gktweets,
\015\012
\015\012Cleaning oil stains off of your driveway will require the right "products". However, if the oil stains are a heavy buildup then you will definately need to steamclean them off first.
\015\012
\015\012What you will need to do is apply a sodium hydroxide based degreasing product (basically most types of degreasers) to the oil stains and let the product sit on the stains for a few days allowing for the degreaser to completely dry.
\015\012
\015\012Then you will want to use a "hot" water pressure washer to steamclean the oil stains off. If you do not have a "hot" pressure washer then a cold water unit will work too just not as effectively.
\015\012
\015\012If you do not have access to a pressure washer at all you should re-coat the oil stains with your degreasing product then scrub with a broom and rinse with a garden hose simultaneously.
\015\012
\015\012After your driveway is completey dry and the oil stains are still minimally present you can apply a dry product known as Bio-Dry. They have videos posted up on you tube as how to purchase and apply the product.
\015\012
\015\012This product will go to work on the leftover stain and will work "over-time" as far as lifting the stain out of your driveway.

Hi, I've a Tefal Steam Generator Express Turbo 2910. It won't "steam". The solenoid works when the button is pressed. The pump works.

When first switched on and hot enough there is the TINIEST whiff of steam when the button is pressed then nothing more. Do you think this could be the Thermostat Part CS00094126, or can you
