2003 ford escape i bought for 900 and was told from him that his mechanic said that it just needs 2 fornt tires and catalic converter and that was all that was wrong with it, then i bring to my mechanic and he says piston 2 has low compression and the transmission is meesed up plus it needs 2 tires and converter should i scrap it or could the 2nd piston just need new rings or could it just need to be cleaned, mechanic put new coils on and got it running half descent but he said it prolly wouldnt

My 92 Ford Explorer just started over heating.........Just put new radiator in it because it was leaking........after radiator got put in overheated again..........we think it is air locked.took the highest hose on one end off but still over heating..........The antifreeze/water was not hot (that come out of the over flow)my question is there a way to get the air out?

I want to drain my radiator and replace the coolant. It's a 2003 with 47,000 and 8 yrs. old. I've been wanting to do it for a while but never got around to it and now I need to before this summer. Is there a drain plug on the bottom of the radiator? and what side is it on? You cant see anything from the top looking down, so I'm thinking I might have to remove that air deflector on the bottom. Once I get it drained, when I put the new stuff in, do I half to dilute it 50/50 with water? or just


If you disconnect the lower hose at the radiator, it's faster and easier than finding the drain plug (half either snap off or don't work anyway). Best to do that with the engine cold.You can either buy pre-mix or straight coolant and dilute it ... Chevrolet Monte Carlo

Brake problem I just got new disc brakes and pads put on the front of my 1997 Ford Escort LX at the end of July. I was told I would need calipers, too by my friend who was a mechanic for 10 years and he said I would be fine for awhile without the new calipers because I didn't have the money at the time. It is now September 2nd and now I hear a faint grinding sound and I'm not sure where it's coming from. I already had the rear brakes, rotors and calipers done. What do you think I may be hearing?


You could have some trash between the rotor and the dust shield, or worse, a bearing going bad. The rear bearings are not hard to replace, but the front ones are a chore. ... 1997 Ford Escort

My mechanic is working on my car right now as we speak, I wanna know what steps should he take? My hasn't been working, I have gotten another radiator that was used put on because my old one wasn't getting hot, and also I got the radiator flushed before it got put on,. The heater core has been replaced with a new one,a new thermostat, and its still over heating. He said something to me about the vacuum lines, and he said that the antifreeze isnt circulating. Should he check the water pump? Does


If the antifreeze is not circulating than yes you need a new water pump. You might also have him look at the thermostat. It can be stuck in the close position.\015\012\015\012The vacuum lines have nothing to do with the car o ... Cadillac DeVille

Oil leak showing on concrete is about 1 teaspoonful. We had to put 750 mls oil in engine. What could be wrong? We have been told that the radiator may be partially blocked and we need a new one? Also the temp guage comes up to 3/4 very fast.


Hello. Regarding the oil leak, it is not uncommon for cars to leak oil as the oil pan gasket ages and deteriorates. If you want, you can replace the gasket with a new one, this will stop the leak.\015\012\015\012Regarding the radiator, ... Toyota RAV4
