    2006 Jetta 2.0T...Car wouldn't start after sitting overnight in garage. Waited a minute then started fine but one headlight was pink. Drove for 1000 km then placed a battery tender on the battery overnight and the next morning, headlight was back to normal white again. What's going on?

Look for leaks on the passenger side!!!! also this car has a "air pocket" you need to find the bleed off screw on the upper hose fitting on the engine and bleed it when filling up with coolant

    head gaskets are bad. they dont always leak into the oil. most of the time they just get a leak into the cylinders. causing the water out of the tailpipe. the tester you used can also check for pressure build up in the cooling system. good luck jimmy

2000 BMW 528i running hot


is the cooling fan cutting in ? run the engine whilst stationary with the hood up , give it a little gas 2000revs and wait for the temp gauge to rise ,the cooling fan should be heard cutting in , and off again once cooled the engine temp down ,this may take 10-15 mins but you have to be sure the fan is cutting in or you may cook the engine

1995 Mitsubishi Diamante is overheating. Oil pressure light came on - oil was low 2 quarts. Added oil, drove down the street, temp gauge went to Hot. Let car cool down. Drove home, check engine light came...


something is strange here thats for sure ,firstly take thermostat out and put it in a saucepan of water and boil it to see if opens .,check the oil light switch and pull the rubber boot cover back to see if any oil is behind it ??.-You are buying trouble with a car with such a high mileage on it ,never buy anything with more than 50,000 miles or you are just buying someones rubbish

Engine temp gage spikes to 260 degree when


are you sure the cooling fans are working?
Is the coolant temp gauge telling the truth?
have you lifted the hood and heard the coolant bubbling into the overflow?
Or heard the tinging sound of a red hot engine?
If he did a liquid test with the dye,and it changed colors it should have changed very fast,
Another thing to think about if he was to take the fan belt off,and pull the thermostat housing off,and removed the thermostat,Now pour coolant into the thermostat hole to almost the top,Now start the car and see which side the bubbles come from,left or right,that will be the gasket that is leaking not both.

NEW RADIATOR,1 YEAR WATER PUMP, NEW THERMOSTAT, STILL OVERHEATS,SENSOR OK, ERRATIC READINGS ON HEAT GAUGE WHEN DRIVING A SHORT TIME GAUGE GOES UP TO HOT AND ENGINE IS HOT. PARK FOR SHORT TIME AND THEN TURN...


Check first if the fan is running, you can do this by pulling out the temp sensor at the lower radiator hose. You should see the fan go on. If the mechanics has checked out everything, I suggest to see if there are added load on the engine such as busted bearing on the pulleys for the serpentine belt. Observe the coolant if it is boiling hard when you notice the temp go up. It might be a problem withe the sensor which triggers the ECU to shut the engine.

Chevy S10 overheated, now heat doesn't work, leaking coolant


When an engine is overheating and then the temp drops on the guage, it's usually a sign that the coolant is not touching the temp sensor. There's no coolant in the engine. Putting water in the overflow tank won't solve this. Take the radiator cap off after the engine cools and put coolant in the radiator. you might have to crank the engine and do this several times, as the engine can develop air pockets that won't allow the coolant to travel inside the engine. If you don't see any leaks, and it still uses coolant, you've probably got a blown head gasket. Check for water on the plugs, check cylinder compression. If it slowly uses coolant, try putting a large box of pepper in the radiator or some of that radiator seal copper flakes.

Heat lack of


9 times out of 10 on this old of vehicle its the heater core. If your car temp gauge is working and the car is heating up fine and the blower works then it is most likely your heater core. Not sure how hard it is on that car. SOme times it just under the dash takes about 30 mins but some cars you have to pull the dash out. The part alone is cheap. I would try logging onto autozone.com put in your car find the part (heater core) then look at the how to change section of auto zone.

Goodluck.
