I have a 2004 Saturn Ion 2. I have several random problems with the car. First the Coolant light always come on when I first start the car, there is coolant in with no leaks. The Coolant warning does not come back on while running, and the car never gets hot even in mid summer. Second, my dash lights and blinkers are acting up. The dash lights will turn off at random after the car has been running. Also the blinkers will work, then after driving a short distance begin to blink fast. I checked an

OK.. I have a 03 Grand Am.. 103,000 miles.. I was leaking coolant months ago and had to get the manifold fixed.. well the low coolant stopped and all was well.. Until a few weeks ago the low coolant light came on after I started to drive it.. not even a 2mins after.. the light goes off.. I checked the coolant and it was fine.. and no sign of any leak like before.. I smelled the engine and you could smell a small faint scent of antifreeze.. then it went away.. So now the light will come on someti


There is a float assembly in the resevoir that will commonly stick. keep it clean and just double check ALL your fluidss as routine maintenance. if there are no leaks and the level has not changed, i would say this is most probable. cheers ... 2003 Pontiac Grand Am

Coolant wiring I just replaced the coolant sensor on my 98 pontiac sunfire. The temperature gage still doesn't work so we retested the code to make sure that it said the coolant sensor and it did. So we took out the sensor and had it checked and it is fine. I'm wondering where I can get wire for coolant sensor and how hard it is to install in the car as we figure it's a a short in the wire. Our next step is to take it to the dealer if we can't fix it with replacing the wire. Thanks


Ensure you are checking the right sensor.\015\012The coolant level sensor is usually located in the coolant resevoir. It generally performs a hi/lo monitor switch function.\015\012The coolant temperature sensor is usually located on the m ... 1998 Pontiac Sunfire

Buick rendezvous overheating I have a 2002 Rendezvous. I was having problems with the car overheating, so I had the thermostat changed. Now, the car still is giving me trouble overheating but not all the time. It may be a short distance or quickly after I start driving even if it has sat overnight. I seem to be getting air out of the bleeder valves still. If I run my heater and get heat from the vents it doesn't seem to overheat, but if I don't get any heat from the vents it seems like it overhe

I have a 1995 Saturn SC1. The check engine light comes on shortly after driving a short distance. I get a code P0011. Then the coolant light flashes a code P0025. From what I've read, this is some kind of transaxle problem. Do you have any details of what the problem could be???? Thanks, Daryl

1998 GMC Yukon - I've got coolant mxing with oil and believe the intake gasket may be leaking. Had this same problem 5-6 years ago, had it fixed, and it ran great and cool until just last week. However, when talking with a repair shop about doing the same repair again, the guy said he wouldn't bother (just get rid of the Yukon) because the coolant that's been in the engine is going to create problems (even after it's drained out and the gasket replaced) and cause the engine to eventually lock up


Honestly, I've never heard of such a thing. If the gaskets are replaced and the engine is cleaned out and the fluids are changed, there shouldnt be any long term problems. If theres no damage now, there wont be any after its fixed. I would highly rec ... 1998 GMC Yukon

Remove gearbox from vw passat automatic . It is a 1999 model. Transmission fluid is leaking, dont know where the fluid is leaking from. Will drive a short distance prior to the automatic shift not responding. The mechanics have quoted a hefty price so I want to remove it manually and then get them to fix the problem (as it may only be the pump? or a leak in a hose?) and get the mechanics to re-install the gearbox. i need help on how to remove the gearbox. Please help!

I have a 1985 Monte Carlo, 4.3L, V-6, automatic transmission...after driving, sometimes long and sometimes short distances but mainly longer distances, it sputters whenever I come to a stop and have to start again. I was told that the thermostat was bad so I changed that and also fixed the coolant leak. When I first start on my destination, I sometimes have to push the accelerator all the way down in order for it to shift. Does the same thing in second and first gears. I've replaced the air filt

Constantly adding coolant, lowcoolant light will come on, therefore getting hot all the time.It makes a popping sound kinda of like if you were boiling water in a big pot and the water all evaporated and the heat was still high-the pot would pop.

Had belt replaced on my 2005 KIA Sedona V6. Now when I start the engine and first put the transmission in drive or reverse I get a rumbling noise until I increase RPM up to about 1000. After driving a short distance the noise is not there any longer even at the lower RPM (about 700 or 800 -idling in gear). Also my tests show that warming up the engine (belt) for about five minutes removes the noise. One more test: When I am in gear and the noise is there, I can make the noise go away by merely i

While reading about this problem I noticed someone with the same problem also had problem with turning the key sometimes (wheel seemed locked when it shouldn't be). I have had this problem as well + sometimes when the key
