Having problems with your 1994 Lexus GS 300 ?

Boiling Sound It's actually a 93 GS 300. My car is making a boiling/bubbling sound when I turn it off sometimes. The car is not flashing any lights or warnings that it is running hot. It is running just fine. What do you think?

Answers :

Have the radiator cap tested.
It's probably excess coolant purging into the overflow tank, and if so, is nothing to worry about - that's what the overflow is meant for.

Car runs fine the first15 to 20 miles. Then the engine sounds like it is speeding up and then bogging down over and over. When this happens the temperature gauge will go back and forth from cool to hot (not in the red though.) So far there is no check engine light coming on. All fluid levels have been checked. Another problem with the car is it pops. I've only heard it pop when backing out and turning the car. 1998 Chevy Cavalier Automatic with 92,000 miles. Thank you


HI! The erratic idling can be caused by a faulty MAF (mass air flow) sensor. If the MAF is faulty a very unusual engine performance is noticeable so you will need to have the MAF replaced. Regarding the unusual behavior of the temperature, there are ... 1998 Chevrolet Cavalier

My 1995 Buick LeSabre has an elecrical problem. The car may run fine. Then after stopping it for a while and trying to start it, the dashboard warning lights come on dimly and there is not enough electricty to turn the starter. There is a low-level grinding sound that can be heard from under the dashboard or in the glove compartment area. It seems as though the battery is out of juice. However, later, I can turn the key and the car starts immediately. When the car is in it's no or low electrict

This could very well be the coolant resevoir/level sensor. if it is running poorly, these engines have a big tendency to foul up the throttle body and go from a 3" hole to about 1 1/2". if you take off the air horn to the throttle body and look insid ... 2002 Volkswagen Jetta TDI

I have a1999 Subaru outback wagon, it was running fin last night, but this morning when we turned it on it started flashing the check engine light, then the light remained lit. The car sounds fine, but is idling about 1500 rpm with occasional jumps up to 2000 rpm; it normally rests about 700 rpm. When I run it, it feels fine with maybe just the slightest hesitation when accelerating. The engine light also went back to flashing.

1996 Toyota Celica. Oil warning light came on two weeks ago. Topped up immediately with 2L. Have driven the car minimally since. Today the warning light came on again. A kind neighbour checked it and thankfully said it wasn't the head gasket as far as he could tell. Coolant level fine if not a little cloudy. Filter seems fine and engine sounds fine. Checked the dipstick and it seems almost dry! I'm mystified.

I have a 2002 Volkswagon Passat. The stop check coolant light went on and the temperature gauge ran hot. I was told I needed a new fan clutch and temperature gauge. The radiator was bled for 2 hours as there was sludge and supposedly the wrong coolant put in previously. Car engine light also came on and car was smoking. After all this, car continues to run hot and overheat. I was told I need the radiator replaced. Does this sound right?

My 2002 hyundai accent 1.5 liters will stall at a stop sign or red light. it won't restart for at least 15 minutes, then die out about a half mile down the road (on a bad day). the car sounds fine when it starts up, and runs fine up until it stalls (sounds like i'm just turning the car off). i've replaced the spark plugs and the fuel filter, but the problem is continuing.

I've got a 96 Buick Regal Custom 3.8L V6. It's been running hot for a while. Yesterday the heater worked fine then last night it started blowing cold. I knew I had a cracked radiator, so I replaced the radiator, cap, thermostat (and seal), the temp sensor and flushed the lines. It's still running hot and the heater is still blowing cold and now the temp light and low coolant light come on too. There's no leakage inside the car or at the water pump or heater core. What could it be?
