Having problems with your 1996 Toyota Camry ?

Parked my 96 camry one day and when I came out 3 hours later, I noticed dark brown liquid all over the ground under my car. Figured it was coolant so I put more in it. Drove about three miles orSo and the car overheated and shut off. Steam was all over the place. Got towed home. The next day I flushed radiator and then noticed a bad leak somewhere near the passenger side wheel. What could it be and how do I get to it?

2003 Jeep Liberty 4WD 6-cyl, 65000 miles. Last year, my car overheated. Front driver side, orange-red coolant was leaking. Granted, I never had it flushed. After the car cooled, I filled with water, and was able to drive home. Next day, I had the coolant flushed, and everything was fine, until it overheated a month later. Turns out it was slowly leaking. I had it topped off, and was able to get home. The water pump blew out, and the car started spewing coolant. Brought it in, a

My 2005 Civic overheated for the first time when I was at a light the other day. I turned the car off and opened the hood and of course the first thing I thought it was that I needed coolant and I didn't have any. A good Samaritan stopped by and poured some into the engine and I had a water bottle which I also poured into the radiator. The car would not start and he gave me a jump start. I managed to get home (1/2 away). The next day I filled it up with coolant and noticed that the car was
