I have seen that problem occur when the engine heats up, developing pressure in the cooling system and antifreeze leaks out into the air intake or cylinders. This might be a blown head gasket or coolant leak in the intake manafold.

1994 Buick Skylark, 138,000 mi.,V-6, auto trans. Car won't engage in gear until engine is warm. Engine must run 4-8 minutes until shifting successfully. Shift lever can be moved to all gears, but transmission doesn't actually engage until engine is warm. Once transmission engages there are no problems driving. If I shut engine off, then restart, transmission will engage as long as engine has not cooled down. I checked fluid level with engine idling and warm and levels were okay. Problem h

I have a 1995 Buick Regal with a 3.8 V6. Car will start just fine on a cold start but will not continue to run unless you hold the engine on at least 3000 rpms for about 30 seconds. it will then idle just fine. It must idle for about 2-3 minutes before putting it in gear and taking off or it will **** back and forth while going down the road and it acts like its not getting gas unless you press the gas pedal to the floor. but if warmed up good before taking off, the car will do just fine for abo

Ive just drove 20 miles in a 2006 1.1 Mitsubishi Colt- Parked up for 15 minuites. When I restarted the car the engine light remained on and the car had no power. After parking for another 15 minuites the car ran OK but the engine light remained on. I parked the car again for another 15 minuites and the engine ran OK and the light went out as soon as the engine was started. Do you think this is a one off or should I take it into a dealer?

Engine burps My engine stops intermittently and all of the indicator lights come on. Sometime it restarts itself in a few seconds and other times I have to shift to neutral and restart.
