Engine Coolant Hot Message Noticed AC was blowing hot and looked at instrument panel and saw message above. Drove short ways and an individual tried to loosen cap, of course hot coolant went everywhere. Could not see any collasped hoses, filled bottle back up and could not see any leaks. Had to drive another 3 miles and as I approached my destination temp indicator had returned to normal temp. Repalced the thermostat, truck still indicating hot, Could it be the water pump?
I wouldn't think it would be the water pump mostly because they will either start to get noisy, pour coolant out of the seep hole or completely seize all of which you would probably notice. My guess would be that you have air in the system that may b ... 2006 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 2WD
The oil pressure gauge on my 96 lumina APV fluctuates like crazy. The engine is not running rough. The gauge behaves up to about 60 psi then it starts climbing and swinging back and forth. It does not drop below 40 psi. Even on cruise control it will fluctuate. The oil and filter have been changed. The problem still exists. Recently went through a lot of mud on the road from beet harvest. Could the sensor of been damage? Were would I look for the sensor?

1997 Grand Cherokee Laredo, 4WD, 5.2 V8. My Jeep overheated today. When I went to open the hood I could feel steam. So I waited for it to cool before taking the radiator cap off and see no fluid in it. Also while it was cooling down the overflow bottle was boiling. Filled the radiator up with antifreeze and water and put on a new radiator cap since the one on there looked bad and I knew it was old. Then I drove back home approximately 10-15 miles and was watching the temp gauge in the dash. No
Have system pressure tested when cold and full to top. Pressure test will force coolant out and you will be able to trace the leaks location. Hopefully it's a small hose leak and not a major problem like a blown head gasket or cracked head. ... 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee
1994 Ford Escort LX Wagon 1.9L My problem is my engine was running Hot while Idle and cold while driving (Looking at the gauge on the dash). I have had the radiator flush and the thermostat replace and still have the issue. Then shortly after that my air condition went out. Not sure if these two could be releated or not. Not sure on what next to check.
A/c and the cooling system are only marginally related in that the a/c condensor is located near the radiator, and both get hot and need a cooling fan to cool.\015\012\015\012So, I would say, in your case, that the a/c going out is not re ... 1994 Ford Escort
I poured bug washer liquid in my temperature gauge. What could happen to my car? The bug washer liquid is pink. I wasn't looking and there was another container that had a pinkish looking liquid substance. After I realized my mistake and the liquid was already poured into this container, I looked at the lid and saw something that looked like a thermometer with a tree-like lines surrounding it. What could happened? should I take it in for a check up? Thanks
The worst that could happen is that BUG liquid is not ANTI-FREEZE... and in the worst cast scenario is that your COOLANT will FREEZE in cold temperature. I dont know the chemical composition of the Bug Liquid but my guess is, that its mostly water. ... 2002 Volkswagen Jetta TDI
Windows I have a vw polo saloon 1.6 2001 model. last night i opened the doors using the key and the window on the drivers side went down and wouldnt come back up i looked at the fuses and thought one of the ones for the window had blown so i swapped them over so i could get the window back up. I went and bought some new fuses today and put a new fuse in but the window went down again and got stuck again. I can only have one window working at a time. what could be the problem?
Maybe the window isn't mounted properly so it makes motor hard to move window up and because of motor overload it blow fuce. Thry to adjuste window better... ... 2001 Volkswagen Golf
When I went to get my car inspected today, the service guy said the front suspension failed. He's going to have a mechanic look at it tom'w, but says it could be the T bar or the shocks. Won't know till the mechanic takes a look. Is there anything else that could be wrong other than those 2 items and what would be a ball park figure I can expect to hear from him to fix the problem.

1998 Mercury Villager --- Had to change the front motor mount and lift the engine some to do it. Everything went fine, but now we do not have heat. I could not see any lines loose or crimped, but I am a novice. Could anyone give me any leads on where to look and what to look for? Thank you! Steven

Stopped at a drive through and air conditioner started blowing hot and temperature gauge went up. Turned off air and started back home and temp gauge started falling and went back to normal even after I turned the air on. I checked the coolant and it looked empty. Is this the problem
Most likely, with the engine cold add coolant back until full, (or 50%coolant 50%water) start engine and let it run with the cap off, watch inside of the radiator and make sure U can see the water flowing threw the radiator. It will burp water and co ... 2006 Kia Optima
The internal cooling fan in my truck came on by it self today and stayed on for about 45 min. there was no key in the ignition. there was nothing i could do to shut the fan off. when i drove home to check this out the fan shut off as i was looking at the fuse panel to see if i could get it to shut off with removing the fuse. didn't get time to do this. problem is if it comes on by itself say at night and dosen't shut off the battery will of course discharge. what can i look for. your answer can

Hello, i just had a few questions about a 1991 Acura Legend. i'm looking at possibly buying one tomorrow. i went to take a look at it today, and in the add it said that it needed a new heater core, and a new fan control module. so i looked up pricing and everything for those and found it to be no big deal, i could easily replace those on my own. now when i looked at the car earlier today, it wouldn't start. the lady selling the car said the battery was brand new and that she had no idea why it w

While driving my 1996 jeep grand cherokee, the "check gauges" light went on, I noticed that alternator gauge reading zero and suddenly all the gauge lights on the dash were on. At that point, none of the dash gauges worked and the door locks started locking and unlocking. The blinkers also when on and off. The car wanted to die at that point, but I could keep it running.

2001 Dodge Dakota Quad 4.7 L with No BuS on the odometer. And the gas gauge and the rest of the clusters gauges will not work. The lights at the bottom of the cluster will work but thats it.
