This is for a 1999 automatic jeep cherokee...my engine oil dipstick was at the add level, so i added a quart. turned engine on put it in drive , checked the transmission fluid. left it running and went to get fluid came back and there was a small coolant leak... drove it around the block and nothing was wrong and leak has stopped...ALSO i filled my anti freeze to the maximum a day before.. why did it leak? is it a problem?


Yes it is a problem, you can have a waterpump that leaks as the engine runs, when the vehicle warms up coolant expands and goes to the resovoir,as you turn the engine off and the engine cools off the fluid in the resovoir reutns to the engine but her ... 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee

I own the 2011 Sportage CRDI vehicle. With the first 20000km service, I was told that the oil dip stick has to be changed because of the full and empty markes on the dipstick that are in the wrong place. When I got the vehicle a year ago, I checked the oil level on a regular basis and at that time the oil level was on the full mark. After I got the car back from Kia South Africa, the level of the oil in the engine was between the empty and full mark. when I confronted the forman of the Kia servi

My oil light came on in my 1996 Honda accord 5 speed and I checked the level. It was low so I put about a quart in to get it to the right level. I drove for a little while and it flickered back on. Once I gave it gas it started flashing on and off.. I think it bar something to do with my oil pump. Does that sound like something I should worry about?

I have a BMW X5 4.4i. The check oil level indicator appears almost always after driving 15-25kms. When checked on the dipstick, it is dry as if there is no oil at all! But when dipstick is replaced and check again, the oil level is at maximum. We did the following but still the problem persist: 1. Check oil pump & oil pump filter 2. Check sensor 3. Change oil and filter

I checked my oil with the car running today and there was an instant vaccum problem that sounded like the car was going to die. I put the dipstick back in and it went away instantly. I was told this was the pvc valve, but all the parts stores Ive called say that this model doesnt require a pvc, or pcv valve. The car has been using close to a qt. of oil every 45 days and does need an oil change. Any other suggestions?


First of all, you cannot get an accurate oil check with the engine running.. Turn the car off, remove the oil dipstick, wipe all oil off the dipstick, then put it back in to check for proper level. Next, your car does not have a pcv valve but rathe ... Volkswagen Passat

I have an 2001 mitsubishi galant 4 cylinder and the motor makes a ticking sound at random times it almost sounds like a fuel injector ticking loudly. car runs good, i check oil levels at times, i put 10w30 oil in it. Just not sure what the ticking sound is you can hear it ticking even with the hood closed. The sound starts at times and then goes away and will come back at no set time period, and then sometimes wont do it for a day or so. thanks for your help


It is a lifter ticking. They are called hydraulic lifters. They have a spring inside them, when the car is running it builds oil pressure. The oil pressure fills the lifter which gives the lifter a cushion so to speak. When a lifter is worn out it wi ... 2001 Mitsubishi Galant

Im always having to put antifreeze in once a week. The way i know it needs it is when temp. gauge surges all the way up then it comes back down. No visible sign on any leaks any where.

We left my PT Cruiser ( yr 2000 touring 2L) standing for over 3 months over the winter, and the battery went flat. We charged up the battery & topped up the oil then started using it again. On the 2nd outing after approx 36 miles the engine management light came on. We checked under the bonnet to find we hadn't put the oil filler cap back on! We have put this back on but the engine management light is still on. I am assuming that the light came on because the oil filler cap was not replaced beca
