No easy permanent solution..lots of messy sloppy ones. Go to a car upholstery shop. For about 300-400, they will, (call first) put in new material that will stay up. The headliner must be taken out through the front windshield....so plan on replacing the windshield and the headliner at the same time....

I've done this trick with older crappy cars but not a nice one so i dunno.  JUST A SUGGESTION!  we would mix elmers glue and water to a light consistancy and "paint" it back on.   Other than that I would just go to an upholstery shop.

2000 Mazda MPV Engine overheating


Head gasket is bad / leaking.
adding fluid on a regular basis is the first clue.
The coolant is seeping into the combustion chamber via a bad head gasket... and running out the tailpipe.

My 1996 cadillac deville keeps running hot, I have changed the thermostat and had the cooling housing gasket changed but it still runs hot not all the time.


Do you have the Northstar engine? If so, there is an issue with head bolts pulling threads. Clues are periodic overheating. Look for exhaust in the cooling system. What happens is under load the compression gases push coolant out, and then you get overheat.
Pressure test the cooling system, there is a small hose that runs from the engine to the coolant tank, sometimes that plugs and air gets trapped. Some models suffer water pump impeller failure, easy to check with a special removal tool.
The head bolt issue is EXTREMELY expensive to fix correctly. Essentially you need to time-sert the bolt holes, and to do that you need to give a bare block to the machine shop.... Real bummer as the repair typically exceeds what is reasonable to invest in the vehicle, thereby rendering the vehicle useless.
I did repair mine, because I really liked the car.This issue should not happen.

When I start my 2002 oldsmobile intrigue there is a motor that continuously runs for about a minute and then shuts off. My ABS light is on as well as the service engine soon light. Does anyone have any...


You should check for codes since this will probably give you specific clues to your problem, but the motor running might be the air pump, which is supposed to run when you first start up so it can inject fefresh air into the catalytic converter so it reaches 'light off' temp earlier. Also, at the first sign of almost any problem I usually check voltage at the battery when the engine has been sitting for more than an hour (should be 12.5 volts) and running (almost 15 volts at startup, gradually dropping down to about 14.2)-computer controlled cars are extremely sensitive to voltage and if reference voltages are not what the ECU expects, all kinds of things can be out of sorts.

Engine is overheating. Radiator cooling fans are not coming on.


The northstar engine has head bolt issues, test for exhaust in the cooling system. What happens is under load compression gasses get pushed into the cooling system, and that pushes coolant out....
One clue is the loss of heater temp.
This is extremely expensive to fix, as you need to totally disassemble and put block on machinists bench for new head bolt threads in the aluminum block...
Replacement of head gaskets will only be short term fix.

Temperature gauge red lined then dropped back down


more than likely but if the temp gets to high you run an extremely high risk of blowing a head gasket or warping or cracking the head.So have it changed out before driving the car much more and also have the water pump checked.

I need picture diagrams identifying parts,hoses,electronic plugs


if you havent already taken apart your heads and what not, make notes, write on hoses with a light colord felt marker or paint marker. take pics with a camara. They can be intimidating these motors, with all the wireing and hoses, but keep in mind everything has a spot and no 2 connectors are the same. Hope this helps ya.
