My hondacivic 1.6 vtec is misfiring when taking off then it smooths out a bit when sitting still wont rev past 4 rpm


You have a misfire, so you don't need someone to
tell you to diagnose what you already know you have

It won't rev past 4,000 rpm, because it is programmed that way,
just so you don't & ruin the engine

I have a geo primz that overheats


Think about your question

You don't know what the issues are yet

So how would you know what is will cost to
diagnose & resolve?

People say this & that (speculate)

You need to actually diagnose the problem,
you do understand that?

Was the oil -- trans fluid or motor oil ?

Have you been adding coolant,that would suggest
a possible head gasket

What's your real problem,how would someone
without the car to check over know that?

Is there 2005 honda civic software update for po128 error code


I think we all just live in a world of automobiles,that have
too much high tech technology,when not so much is needed,
just to keep exhaust emissions at an acceptable level

At least you kept going back to the dealer & not keep driving
as most people do

You gave the dealer techs several chances at resolving the issues,
all be it, expensive, to say the least.

I don't see anything where you went wrong, or they let you down,
assuming your good to go & no more issues

I assume that the head gasket was something that only moved
& leaked internally under certain conditions & I don't know why or
when the ECU came up as a problem,they don't fail often

I just bought a 2003 Toyota Echo and when I start the car up, the blue "low engine coolant" light stays on for about a minute before shutting off. I've added coolant, so I know it is full,...


Make sure there is no air in the system, take the radiator cap off and let the engine idle for half an hour, as the air comes out the coolant will go low, ad more coolant and then close the cap on also make sure the resevour bottle is at its mark.

My ac wont come on what should i do i tried to put a can in but it wont take what should i do?


When your refrigerant is to low the compressor won't run. Disconnect wires running to compressor & jump over with a piece or wire. The compressor should come on and take the refrigerant. After adding a can I would remove the jumper wire & reconnect the wire to thecompressor to ensure that is the problem. Be carful and don't overfill.

I have a 1999 oldsmobile aleo i do not know where the engine coolant goes


Are you asking where to actually put the coolant in or asking why your coolant is needing to be replaced often?
If you are not sure where the coolant goes - it goes in the radiator. Should be in the front of the engine compartment, has a cap on top of it (either in the middle or on one side) with warnings about not opening of overheated. Unscrew the top & follow any mixing instructions on the coolant labels.
If you are loosing coolant & don't know why: Check coolant levels first, look for any leaks from hoses (make sure your connections are tight & hoses are not cracked/busted), check for leaks from the radiator itself (any holes or cracks), check the fan (is it turning like it should with the motor running), check the fan belt (is it broken). If all these things check out - get your water pump checked (if it's out, water is not getting to/circulating around like it should). If it's not the water pump, you may have a cracked head gasket. Check the easy stuff first though - good luck.

I have a pontiac sunfire 2001, Can you poor water to the coolant or just plain coolant? . At the plastic container where you put the coolant it is marked coolant only.... Help!!!! Where you put the water?


Coolant should be mixed with water before adding it to the plastic container. If the coolant is not already mixed with water at a 50/50 ratio, (50 percent water/50 percent coolant) do so before adding. Coolant should always be mixed and not added as straight coolant, the water helps the coolant flow thru the cooling system and aids in helping the coolant remove heat from the engine during the cooling process.

My 88 Tracer started having problems with all dash lights being on. Then a day or two later over heated lost all antifreeze except small amt in overflow. Let it cool added some to radiator and overflow....


OK, first, I think it may be the alternator. If you charge the battery overnight, the engine should run for about an hour before it discharges again.
I don't think the coolant should affect the wiring.

There may be a fuse panel for the high current fuses in the engine compartment. It should be 30 amp or higher.

Does the generator/alternator/battery light come on when the key is in ON position?

What engine? 1.9L or 1.8L?
VIN Number?

Just need to know where to put the coolant


If you don't have a radiator cap or a cap in the upper radiator hose, you have to add through the Overflow. Cavaliers are this way. It takes forever to burp the air out of them. Be careful that you don't stop before all of the air is out. An aid pocket in the cyl head will damage your engine.
