If you have change the radiator , then check the thermostat for its temperature while running . then try to change the engine oil it could be one of the reasons that your car is having a overheat problem.

SOURCE: will car run hot if oil change is needed

The oil has to be very old and contaminated to cause any degree of overheating, so I don't think that is your problem.

The most common overheating problem with the Northstar engine is a blocked purge line(small hose).The purge line is designed to purge air out of the cooling system.
There is a small diameter hose coming from near the top of the coolant tank (not the cap) ,this is the purge line.
With the engine idling,pull the purge line from the tank,if there is no coolant flow from this small hose,it is blocked and this will cause overheating.If the hose is clear, check for blockage at the nipple on the tank.Or trace the hose back until you find the blockage.The hose goes in to the engine to a crossover and comes out the other side to near the thermostat housing,the blockage may be there.

The short answer is no.
Running below a 1/4 tank of gas wears out the fuel pump. Quickly.
Running low on oil in hot weather wears out internal engine parts like piston rods, bearings, and lifters.
Bottom line is you probably added 75 or 80,000 miles to the age of the fuel system and engine. Maybe more. Which can't be erased.
Keeping the oil/filter changed and keeping it full may keep it running for several more years. Or not.

Car was parked for two year, change oils, filter and spark plug but have knocking sound when start. what is the cause?


See if spraying some silicone or penetratng oil on belts,while running, quiets the noise. They may have dryed out from sitting. If it is an engine noise, run vehicle till hot,15 to 20 minutes,then change oil & filter again. You may have moisture or rust built up or a bad bypass valve in oil filter.

Changed the spark plugs and air filter yesterday and tested compression all good. Car starts but stalling with the engine knocking. Sounds as though its getting fuel. The car chirps when I close the door...


Check the charging system,cars today will not run without the amps to supply the ignition system,just battery voltage will not keep the car running correctly.Look for at least 13.65 to 14.25 volts.The knocking ,I hope is from the car not running on all cylinders.If there is a bad engine knock caused from a crankshaft bearing or rod,then the knock sensor would pick this up,and the computer would try to adjust to this,and can not of course,but that would explain the poor performance.Now if the battery was ever took off the car,or went down to low,the computer could have lost memory,and would have to be re flashed at the dealer to get the engine to run correctly,and the alarm.

I have a 1995 Subaru Legacy, and it started making "knocking sounds". Ck the oil, it was OK


If the sound does not go away then the engine has internal problems. Some times if someone over revs the engine it will cause knocks.If the oil is not changed regularly and the engine gets hot due to low water,racing engine then engines dont last long.
If its a deep solid knock its a crank shaft bearing.
If its a lighter knock then some times if you remove the right plug wire and the knock goes away (of course the engine will run rough due to lost cylinder) its that pistons wrist pin bearing.
At any rate your engine will need rebuilt or replaced.Or get a different car.
