  • Copyright question?

    Say someone was inspired by a song they heard and enjoyed and decided to write a poem using some aspect of the song as a theme. Also say that that person felt that the exact title of the song was the best name for the poem. 

    If this person then wanted to include this poem in a book and publish it, would there be any potential issues with copyright, due to the identical names and monetary gain by the writer?

  • Engine Issues?

    Proud owner of a 2006 Jeep Wrangler. The engine has been acting strangely as of late, and I've never experienced these issues since I bought it.

    To summarize, here's how it's been acting up for the past two months or so:

    1) I can open the throttle just about all the way and it refuses to accelerate. The rpm will bounce back and forth between 2k and 2.5k over and over. Then, the rpm will suddenly climb to 3.5k or 4k.

    2) It shifts into second gear just fine, but refuses to shift into third. This leads to the rpm spike problem described above.

    3)The max speed I'm able to reach is about 50 mph.

    4) As engine rpm and speed increase, a repetitive thumping/banging noise can be heard from the engine at about a rate of one per second.

    5) I've been using noticeably more gas than usual.

    I've had the codes checked and a P0133 was returned, a slow response from the #1 bank one oxygen sensor.

    My best guess is that the faulty oxygen sensor is causing excessive fuel injection, drowning the engine and leading to the concerning behavior I described.

    Is my hunch correct or is something more serious going on, something that entails costly repairs?

    Exhaust header issue?

    I have a 2006 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited that I have modified in various ways, including the addition of a Sprintex supercharger. The previous owners cared for the Jeep well and I haven't had any issues with it at all, up until a few months ago.

    In late 2019, I started hearing a noise coming from the engine. It was just barely noticeable at first, but gradually increased in volume over time. Judging by the steady, breathy nature of the sound, and how it got louder on acceleration, I concluded that exhaust gases were escaping from a place they weren't supposed to be.

    Upon inspection, I found that the bolts on the left rear header had worked themselves loose. What I think is the header flange wasn't seated properly, as I could wiggle it around. I tightened the bolts up with my dad's help and, thankfully, the noise practically disappeared. It was an easy and effective fix.

    Unsurprisingly, however, the bolts ended up loosening again within a couple weeks and the rushing noise returned. It's quite loud and bothersome, loud enough to drown out the supercharger whine, which is also unfortunate in its own right.

    I spoke to the guy who has upgraded my Jeep and he didn't have any recommendations on how to resolve the issue other than tightening the bolts every time they came loose.

    Basically, is there truly no solution to this problem other than the one he proposed?

    Here's a photo of the offending header. The part in the middle is loose and is the source of the sound.
