My 1994 toyota 4x4 pickup coolant is draining rapidly into the oilpan. It is a four cylinder 22R-E engine. I drained the engine of its oil and coolant. Then I poured coolant into the radiator. The coolant immediately drained into the engine's oil pan. I did a compression test on the cylinders and they all averaged around 160 psi. I do not believe that the head or block is cracked. Is there another problem?

I am trying to flush my 94 Honda Accord of all the anti-freeze in the system so I can add a coolant sealant. I am having problems locating the drain on the engine block. I removed a bolt that was located to the left of the oil filter (like the book decribed) but this does not seem to be the right one. Nothing came out even when water was added to the system. Also the bolt that I removed had alot of oil on the inside. Please can someone provide a better decription of where to find this bolt?


This "bolt" is called a petcock, and it's made of plastic and it is located on the bottom of the radiator itself.If it's not on the bottom of the radiator then it's closer to the bottom of the radiator, within an inch or two from the bottom.I hope I ... Honda Accord

On the bottom left of the radiator is the drain plug. It is on the side facing the motor. If you do not see the other way to drain the radiator of the coolant is to remove the bottom radiator hose.\015\012\015\012Here is a picture of the ... Toyota Tacoma

1985 toyota r22 pickup(manual trans.) when i get on freeway and get up to about 45mph, in 3rd gear, the engine starts to bog down and i can not go any faster. it sat for 4 years with gas in tank. I have put sea foam in gas tank and filled it up with new gas, but the old gas was never drained. been driving it for a few weeks and problem does not get any better. replaced plugs, distributor, air filter, and oil change. please help.


The problem may be the gas that sat in the carburator. Gas goes bad faster in smaller quantities. Have a look inside to see if you have "gummed" up passages, or jets. Don't forget to change the fuel filter.\015\012Good luck. (I have an 89, and ... 1985 Toyota Pickup

No power Hi, I recently went to vacation and parked my 2009 Toyota Camry in my garage. after I returned 2 months later my battery was drained, which could be considered normal over a prolonged period of time. after recharging the battery, i tried to drive the car there is no power. The rpm wont even go above 1.5 in drive or neutral. I've already searched all over the internet, but haven't come across the same problem let alone a solution. Also the engine light is on. I would appreciate any help,


With the Engine light on -- it is telling you to scan it for codes. That is just a start. The vehicle may have to be driven to relearn fuel strategy,shift points etc. ... 2008 Toyota Camry

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

I don't have a scanner to reset the check engine. So i unplugged the battery and waited 15 minutes. Then repluged it in and i am still haveing the Error P0118 problem? HELP!!!


Ever since 1995 you have to turn off useing a obd2 scanner, if you do not have one, you can go to any auto parts store and they will erase the code for free. by having the light still on the computer thinks it still has an error. good luck Toolman, ... 1998 Chevrolet Cavalier

2007 Toyota Corolla, check engine light came on a few days ago. The engine sometimes revs when idling, accelerating from being stopped can be really jerky, and the temperature gauge has quickly gone up and down (up to about halfway). It's an intermittent problem - sometimes everything is just fine (but the check engine light is always on). I got a diagnostic done today, and the DTC reported were P0118 (Engine coolant temperature circuit high input) and P0125 (Insufficient coolant temperat

2003 Saturn Vue 3.0 V6. I have a coolant leak on the front passenger side of the engine compartment. This leak is located on the engine rear (opposite end from waterpump) and is on the engine side closest to the radiator. The engine has a block heater installed. Are there any drain plugs/freeze plugs/coolant connections near this location to be suspicious of? Or must I consider a head gasket or cracked block. Do you have other suggestions?


Its hard to say but I just looked at a diagram of the engine compartment of your vue, and i would have the head gasket checked. It may not be blown, but those engines have a problem with leaking head gaskets. Our shop has done 4 or 5 this year alon ... 2003 Saturn VUE

I have a 1986 Toyota Celica GT. I have two problems. The first problem is I don't have any heat. I have plenty of coolant, my thermostat is good and my engine is running halfway between cold and hot so it is getting warm enough. What it will do is it will blow cold air no matter how hot the engine is but if I shut it off and then back on sometimes it will blow hot air for about 10 seconds then it will go cold again. Second problem is I have no backup lights. The bulbs are good and I look f

Cooling problem my bmw 07 335i coupe was consuming alot of coolant water like 1 litter per day i checked the issue, it was a radiator problem... helpfully, i changed it and i left it for sometimes. AFTER 2 weeks i re-checked the coolant, it needed like 0.4 litters and i checked the engine oil if its '' milky '' to check if its from the gasket, the oil looks perfect, and there's no white smoke, is there any clue why my car is consuming alot of water in the coolant? maybe because im driving it too


Level of engine output is not related to water consumption at all, you are not doing anything wrong. It's too soon after the leaking radiator to assume that the engine is consuming water. .4 liter is not much to add at all. Some engines hide air p ... 2007 BMW 335i Coupe
