Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

Low coolant problem.

I have a 06 Chevy Malibu lt. 4 cylinder engine. I drive 100 miles round trip to work and home everyday. About once a week I get a low coolant light on. I have to add about 1 cup then. Took it to the shop. They did a pressure Check and block test. Everything was ok. Still having the problem. Any advise would be greatly Appriciated. It has 137,000. Added about 2 gallons in the past month and a half.

Have the DIS module checked and the coil pack for cyl 3. If either/both of those need replaced, have it done and have the codes cleared. Then see if it clears the others.

You may need a TPS (throttle position sensor) as well.

Problem with this is that it could be a number of things, have ur water pump checked, open the radiator and see if there is water running through it, a bad or plugged thermostat, in this case it does sound like a blown head gasket. id suggest flushing the radiator with some cleaner that u can buy at the store and check n see if ur thermostat is stuck, hope for the best and expect the worst

SOURCE: 2004 VW Bug leaking antifreeze. small puddles

the VW beetle has a plastic radiator, where the cap is if you look to the front of that it does a 90, it is cracked there. Here is the fun part, with a throx wrench ( I think it was a T-30) take apart the fenders and front bumper. At the auto parts store there is a plastic tank repair kit, the kit includes resign,fiber glass cloth, and a stick. You will need to rough up the crack as it is right where it angles and lay on the cloth and resign. Let it dry and it will not leak from there again. Good Luck Tim

What type of maintenance my car would need after 90,000 miles


There is no special service needed at 90,000 miles other than the normal Air Filter & Cabin Filter replacement every 30,000 miles. Inspect all drive belts and hoses. You do need to replace Brake Fluid every 3 years independent of mileage. At 110,000 miles replace the spark plugs on a 4 cylinder, 105,000 on a V6. Replace engine coolant at 120,000 or 10 years on both engines. Replace A/T fluid at 60,000 miles. On the V6 at 105,000 miles replace the Cam belt and Water Pump. The 4 cylinder has a chain that you replace when it is noisy or you cannot keep the engine in time.
