It went overheated after driving down from a freeway. The whole thing shutted down. Poll over and wait for it to cool down. White smoke came out from the car. Check coolant box and try to drain water in it, and everything just come right back out. Try to start it again but it was running out of battery. Got my friend to come over and jump it and it still would not start. End up towing the car. It still would not start until 3 days after. Please let me know what's wrong with the car.


Since I cannot see your car, it sounds very much like it overheated and pretty likely you flooded it attempting to re-start. Two items you need to check. First, if you got it running, was there any white smoke from the exhaust when it was runni ... 2000 Pontiac Grand Am GT

Thermostat Car overheated making the temp gauge max out to the top and the hot light came on. Checked the coolant level when it cooled down and it was a little low, but not much. Topped it off. Car had cooled down for about 4 hours. When I got in and started it, the gauge needle was still past the red and the hot light came on instantly. It wasn't hot. This was about a week ago. I've been driving it since with these problem, but the car doesn't seem to be overheating. I did drive it today


I would say its the temperature sensor that is your issue, replace it and see what happens but make sure its the right one. Theres one for the gauge and light and one for the computer, the one you need to change will be the one that when you unplug i ... 1995 Chevrolet Lumina

The other day I noticed that when I pressed on the brake my alero would jump forward a little bit and the rpms would go up. Not real high though. Even when in park the rpms would go up and down but still not very high. It eventually stopped but the service engine soon light came on shortly after. After a weekend of not using my car I got back into it to drive and the engine light was still on but it was not acting funny anymore. Made a stop and got into the car again after about an hour and when

I have an 99 Intrigue Oldsmobile. It's taken a few times turning the key to get the car started. This happened 3-4 times over the past week. I thought maybe bad gas, but put a fresh tank in and it still happened. Then yesterday, I was doing some in the city driving and my temp gauge almost got to the the "red" area. Once I got back on the Highway, the temp went back to normal. Today, I was driving 55 and all of a sudden my tach went to 0, my water light came on and my car shut off. I coa

Traction warning light came on while pulling up to stop light and car starting jerking then quit. I pulled over and didn't find anything wrong so I drove it home.

I shut the car off and restarted the car and it still **** when you put it into gear.

Now it will not attempt to start at all....

Quite honestly, seek out a trusted muffler repair shop nearest you. They may have to replace if it is too rusted ($100-$150?) or with any luck they can weld it back into place ($25). Not dangerous (unless it falls off) but definately annoying!! ... 1997 Pontiac Sunfire
