Crawl under the truck and look for fuel stains, gas leaves a trail when it leaks out due to the fact it is slightly oily.

My 2007 Range rover supercharged is starting but cant Rev up. then it says Reduced Engine Perfomance. I have loaded 30 litres of fuel but still


reduced engine performance may be a sign that fuel is not getting through to the pump properly i would first change fuel filter then check for small leaks drawing air rather than losing fuel then finally the dreaded check the pump or pumps themselves

My car loses antifreeze, No sign of leaks.


If you are sure it has no leaks and this has been verified with a pressure test being done by a shop then you may have a leaking engine cylinder head gasket. I would suggest that you get under the car and look for white powdery deposits that are left by coolant leaks, also have the system pressure tested, this requires a special tool.

My 2002 kia rio is kinda lowd and it vibrates when in park or at a stop sign


Sounds like it's misfiring. Possible causes are:
  1. Bad spark plug
  2. Bad spark plug wire
  3. Clogged fuel injector
  4. Exhaust leak
In most cases, a good tune up will fix your issue. It's best to rule out the exhaust system first. A leaking exhaust will lose compression and impact performance.

Started white smoking and losing a little coolant. Not getting in oil. no power lose. no sign of leaking.


if you are losing coolant and and producing white smoke from the tailpipe you have the classic sign of a bown head gasket. usually this smoke is accompanied by a bitter sweet odor. most common causes are severe engine overheating or severe misfire(flashing check engine light). take the car in for a diagnosis.

Losing antifreeze changed thermostat and resivoir cap


Check you oil for signs of coolant contamination. If coolant is present in the oil, you may have a leaking head gasket or intake manifold gasket. If there is no sign of coolant in the oil, the antifreeze could be leaking past the intake gaskets and into the combustion chamber. It could also be a leak that only shows up when the engine is running, and you are losing the coolant as you drive. This kind of leak is very difficult to locate. You will have to look for signs of antifreeze around the upper and lower intake gasket area with a strong flashlight. Also check for signs of leakage at the upper and lower radiator hose connections and the drain valve at the bottom of the radiator. If you smell antifreeze inside the car, check the carpet for dampness caused by a heater core leak. Sounds like a lot of work, but these mystery leaks as I like to call them, can take repeated inspections before you finally locate them. I hope I have been of some help. Good luck and let me know what you find.

2000 Bravada hesitates when starting frm a stopped position.


get your hands on a fuel pressure tester.. this will tell u if u are losing fuel pressure between starts... those 4.3 v6's have a big problem with the poppet valve (injector assembly) leaking. causing the engine to flood...and losing pressure to push threw the injector... causing the hard start...but the fuel pump module will also lose pressure as has a check valve to keep that from happening but from time to time they do leak allowing fuel to flow back into the tank...with this pressure tester, have a friend turn the key to on.. after you hear the fuel pump shut off immediately pinch off the two fuel lines going from the tank to engine you can find these right below the driver side door. you will find the fuel filter there which is the pressure hose the other hoseis the return... both rubber hoses that will not be harmed by the vise grips or tools be your choice the other metal line is a vapor line which is not important. after you do pinch the lines off check the fuel pressure if it still drops with no signs of slowing down then the poppet valve is defective...if it does not move then you know it is definitely the fuel pump module (fuel pump assembly)

My jetta wont start, getting a cherping sound from under the hood


A chirping sound like gasses blowing through a small gap????
If so it may be a headgasket blown. To diagnose, 1 check in oil cap and dipstick for a white/grey sludge deposits showing water and oil mixing. 2 check coolant filler cap for similar sludge deposits. 3 check around the top of the cylinder block for signs of oil or carbon "blow outs". Do a cylinder compression test on all cylinders and compare the readings(1 or more lower readings will show a problem).
If all ok, check the inlet gasket for leaks, will see signs of oil/fuel leaks.
If you are losing power and using more fuel then normal it could be either of the above, if you are also losing water as well as power, points towards head gasket.
I can't think of any other possabilities, so good luck.

Losing Anti-Freeze


hi get it prussure tested if you are correct in saying there is no sign of a leak or signs of water in the exhaust then you will have a leak and what is happening is it is evaporating as it leaks hence on sign of leak usually theseleaks are found where hose are near something hot example exhaust manifold the pressure tester will make the leak visable yates210456
