What would make a 2000 buick park avenue over heat and shut off


over heating is from ---low coolant level--blocked radiator cores--fins missing from radiator cores--thermostat not opening--coolant temperature sensor not operating the cooling fan-- driving to fast and not engaging over drive ---if the fan is mechanical and there is a viscous fan hub then the hub is faulty ( overheating at lights but cools down on moving)-- faulty radiator cap--- air in cooling system--run fault codes to check for problems with mixture and timing---low tyre pressures at speed ---over loading--pulling a heavy trailer ---hilly conditions

Perhaps some where in that list you will find an answer to your question

1998 Camry Reverse noises


this really sounds like a broken motor mount / trans mount. An easy way to check is have someone sit in the car and shift into reverse, then to neutral, then to drive. Have your "assistant" do this repeatedly with the hood up, parking brake ON and foot FIRMLY applying the brakes while you watch the motor move. if you can see a big difference in "jump" between reverse and drive, that is a bad mount. The motor will lift or "jump" higher on the broken mount side. if your really not sure then try a gentle power brake in each direction.

Honda element 03. Normally starts up at 1,000 rpm in park and shifts into drive smoothly. Sometimes starts up b/w 1.5 and 2k rpm at idle and JERKS into drive or reverse.Solutions?


Cars not control choke themselves electronically, this is likely the car trying to warm itself up quickly. The jerking will occurs anytime you shift into gear at an RPM over a low idle as the torque converter is being engaged. If the high idle last more than a couple of minutes then you might have an issue.

Liter engine automatic


you probably have a bad motor mount. Look under the hood, passenger side of engine compartment cast iron mount with rubber insert. Is the rubber insert worn visually inspecting. If you cannot tell, have a friend start the car, emergency brake on, foot on brake, shift from park to drive, does the motor jump in the mount? shift from drive to reverse, does it jump again. If so bad mount, local auto repair store should carry. you will have to jack up the engine carefully not much and not directly on oil pan, you just have to relieve the weight on the mount to replace. several m10 bolts, 15mm socket to remove. retighten fasteners to 58+/- 9Nm of torque. good luck.

When i put my car into reverse it feels like it wants to turn off & does not easily reverse


Check the engine mounts o see if they are broken. Prop the hood open and with the parking brake on and your foot pressed firmly on the brake pedal, start the engine and put the car in drive and rev the engine up while you keep an eye on the engine. Then do the same in reverse. If the engine jolts or jerks during the procedure, the mounts are more than likely in need of replacement and once the new parts are installed, the problem should no longer exist.

Car jerks with loud knock when shifting from park to drive


Ok the knock is your flex discs on the drive shaft are bad along with the carrier bearing. Replace before you get stranded or it comes loose.
Fuel distributor may need work if it is hard to start when warm, Replace OVP relay by battery also, its always an issue.

Knocking


the knocking is probably the connecting rod that is between the piston and the crankshaft....the pop you heard was it breaking. this is major engine repair and needs to be looked at by profesionals.
