Looks like the water pump has gone out in my wifes 1998 honda civic. I want to replace it myself with the help of a retired mechanic but need to know the following questions? 1- Do I have to lift up the engine to get the old pump out and new one in? 2- If the radiator is fine and there is a significant leak in the bottom left of the car underneath the timing belts, is that the correct location of the water pump on the civic? Thanks for your help!

My 03 Maxima (3.5l 255 hp) started burning oil at rate of 1 qt per 1000 mi. One guy at the dealer says this is normal, just keep adding oil, other guy at dealer says 'time to get a new car." Either way, it doesn't sound right, why is it burning that much oil? Checked for leaks, no leaks, car also does not smoke at all, still drives great. I've always used the synthetic 10w40, had regular oil changes. Car has 115,000 miles on it, I expected to get a lot more wear out of this car & I'm pretty disa


1qt per 1000 miles isn't too bad, all things considered. There is probably some leakage through the piston seals, which is to be expected after 115,000 miles. I would give a good quality leak-fix in a can a try, as they can really help with some of ... 2003 Nissan Maxima

Found it was the oil filter wrong and changed it and put the oil back in it. Now it just turns over and wont start.

My 51 plate just shut down and wont start kia in my town r no help unless i spend thousands, theyve taken my injectors and replaced them and still wont go they say metal filings from a suspected pump braking up blocked the injectors, find hard to believe, now theyve returnd vehicle with no injectors and say theyv sent old ones in exchange but because it still the same im refusing to pay for new ones,


They must have had a hard time coming up with that one. The fuel filter would have stopped the metal filings, if there were any. And if they suspected a bad pump, why didn't they replace it instead of the injectors. If their diagnosis and repair did ... 2002 Kia Sedona

I have a 1989 crown victoria and i have a small battery on it does it matter the size of the battery, because sometimes it starts and when i' am driving it for a while then shut it off and then try to start the car it wont i crank it and crank it and it wont start but then i wait 4 about 4 to 5 minutes and then it starts it has 111k miles on it can someone help me please is it the battery also i can smell a little antifreeze but no leaks help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!please.


The smaller battery could be over charging unless picked up by the voltage regulator, and heat is a slow killer. Cars require different amps to start. The main thing to look at is the Cold Cranking Amps. Which is the amps being put out at 0F or -18c. ... 1989 Ford Crown Victoria

1990 Geo Metro. Driving down the road with the a/c on the car loses power and starts slowing down. Also hear a sound, like compressed air being released the wife says under the car behind the front seats, I think its coming from exhaust. I spoke with a couple of people who say vacuum leak or ignition module.The a/c is also not cooling properly. I can turn the a/c off and the motor picks back up. A few minutes later I turn the air back on and it runs fine for awhile. Thanks for your help.


It sounds like the ac compressor is building up to much head pressure.Check the cooling fans to see if they come on when the ac is turned on.The cooling fan should come on when the ac is turned on.This keeps the head pressure down so the freon keeps ... Geo Metro

Can a bad intake plenum leak antifreeze into the engine on a 2002 century 3.1?The computer code was misfire #1 cylinder. Complete tune-up done, same problem, new#1 injector, same problem. Now the coolant is gone, no leak on ground. Shop says blown head gasket but I have been told to have them check the intake plenum by a retired GM shop tech. They tell me it can't be the intake plenum as "that only handles air, no coolant involved with that." HELP!!! Scott


I see a lot of lower intake gasket leaks on these but usually you get an external leak or you'll find coolant mixed with the oil, not a misfire. Upper plenum is dry on the 3.1 and just bolts onto the top of the lower intake. We usually apply pressur ... 2002 Buick Century

I have a 2003 S-Type - I have a brand new battery I just bought. If I don't drive the car for 2 days I have to get a jump and my car drives fine until another weekend when I don't drive it and back on Monday I have to get a jump. Can someone help. I am not leaving on anything over night! What is making the battery die just because you don't drive it for a few days?
