Dark brown is bad. I'd have to say that you need a full coolant flush. Your heater core is probably plugged with rust as well. If you flush out the system you will probably get your heat back as long as the heater core frees up. Good luck from NS!

SOURCE: i need to unlock my stereo in a 2001 mitsubishi montero sport

Well any place that services Mitsubishi's can give you the code, like your local Mitsubishi dealership.. but in order to give you the unlock code - you need to give them the serial number off the back of your radio.

Yeah I know. When I spoke to my Mitsubishi dealership's service department they told me that i I brought the car in they would charge me for a half hour of labor (so 1/2 of $75) to find the serial number and do it for me. Then I could write down the code on the owners manual for next time.

Apparently the Mitsubishi software that the dealers have, has a little wizard where they plug in the radio serial number, and the software spits out the unlock code. They said they would give me my code over the phone for free, if I had a means to get my own serial number.

SOURCE: check engine light

this light is warning you of a serious issue concerning a failed sensor in the engine. you will need to run this vehicle in the nearest dealership for a diagnostic scan on the ecm/pcm device. this scan will give detailed info on the location of the problem and how to fix it. this scan cpu will also reset the light and it will shut off once the issue is fixed.

If you just want to shut the light off, you can just pull the battery post for a minute. this will reset the ecm but, if the issue is not fixed, the light will come back on in the coming days.

Just changed my horns on my 98 Montero Sport and come to find out it was the horn relay. The horn relay is located near your power steering resivour its a small black square you will see some electrical lines running to it. Give it a couple taps and then try out your horn again. If that dosnt work your horns are located right behind your turn signals on your front bumper, they are circluar 3in and golden colored. You can get dealer ship replacement horns for 30 plus dollars or go to a autozone or advance auto and get aftermarket ones

2011 chevrolet aveo 1.6 gets hot, changed throstat did't help

If your car is overheating, changing the thermostat will not help.
If your car is front wheel drive, check to see if your fan is running when your engine is hot (the fan that blows on your radiator).
Make sure your antifreeze is topped off.
It could be a bad water pump.
It could be a plugged radiator.

Antifreeze leak on top passenger side of engine block

Very likely a bad head gasket. Be sure to get it checked and fixed. If your engine over heats or if the gasket is also leaking into the cylinders then you could cause serious damage to your engine.

I have a thick dark brown sludge in my antifreez resevoir tank is it oil or really old antifreeze?

Usually antifreeze and oil mixing causes a dark whiteish milkshake consistancy liquid so if its a dark color i'd guess its REALLY old antifreeze with a lot of corrosion from your engine. Get it flushed and changed a.s.a.p. and hope it didnt mess it up to bad.

Montero Sport 2001 - white heat coming out after idling for a while and you hit gas. Smells like burnt after getting home. Repair shop says it need new engine. I'm frequently adding oil, but not huge...

Check for oily mixture in your antifreeze. Also check for antifreeze in the oil. You could do a compression test to verify, but it sounds very much like you have have a failing head gasket, or possible a cracked head. There are some liquid head gasket repairs available at auto parts stores that may help, or at least keep it from getting worse for a while. The white vapor from the exhaust is antifreeze burning off. It may have a slightly sweet smell. If untreated, the vehicle will eventually overheat and the engine will fail completely.

Radio code

You should be able to contact the dealer and provide proof of ownership, and they may be able to give you the code. You may have to remove the radio and give them a service number located on a sticker. or they may have to reprogram it with a code of your choice.
