    just checked, fuses arenot blown and its loudly squeeking like a puppy when trying to turn ovee

  • Michelle Jan 20, 2013

    Timing has been set. Fuse box inside the car show no blown fuses. Still making a very loud squeeking noise that sounds like a puppy when trying to turn over. About to try the starting fluid suggestion. Any other suggestions?

    starting fluid is not the solution. You will just make fire while the car isn't ready for it. If you blew the head gasket, I assume water found it's way into the combustion chamber. That most likely bent something. (Bent rod)

Check to see if it's getting gas or spray some starter fluid into intake. If it fires, change fuel filter first and try it without starter fluid. If it doesn't start then change fuel pump.

SOURCE: 2000 vw jetta 2.0 checked oil no oil showed on dip

Most likely place for oil into coolant is oil cooler, the aluminum box that mounts between the oil filter and a flange that comes off the block.

Car overheated blown hose rplaced it and now there is oil in with the spark plugs


You've probably blown the head gasket. It'll have to be replaced.

My 97 honda accord is blowing white smoke and running rough then i went to start it now it wont start


Sounds like either a blown motor (rings need replaced) or a bad head gasket or cracked head.
If the rings are bad your car would have felt like it was losing power because the engine will no longer have the same high compression that it's required to turn the wheels. You may have heard your engine knocking or seen a light blue colored smoke coming from your exhaust as a result of your engine burning up oil in the combustion chamber from the rings leaking.
If your head gasket is leaking or your head is cracked you'd likely find milky looking oil when you drain your oil from water/antifreeze being mixed in and noticed a white smoke coming from your exhaust that is actually water vapor coming through the exhaust.
If your car was running rough when you last shut it off try pulling all of your spark plugs and either cleaning them or replacing them all. A bad head gasket or bad rings can both foul spark plugs. A car will run rough with 1 or 2 fouled plugs, but once enough foul it will no longer run at all just sit and crank over. If changing the plugs get's it started for ya, check your tailpipe first for water, if nothing, change your oil. If no signs of water/antifreeze or milky colored oil then it's probably rings.

Check intake, compression, ignition, exhaust & vacuum. If the intake &/or the exhaust is blocked/clogged it won't run.
If the radiator acts like old faithful while you crank it, it has a blown head gasket, cracked head & or a cracked block.
If the radiator is dry or has very little in it, check the oil & the exhaust for antifreeze/water.
If you find antifreeze/water in the oil &/or the exhaust, it has a blown head gasket or cracked head/block.
Check the compression. If water/antifreeze shoots out of the spark plug holes (take all the spark plugs out for the compression test) during the compression test, it has a blown head gasket &/or a cracked head/block.
Check the ignition w/a spark plug tester that you can buy at parts stores for $10 or less. Some of them you just hold the tip close to the plug wire or touch the rubber boot on the spark plug so the tester can pick up the pulse from the wire/plug via induction. Others are put in line between the plug wire & plug.
Unplug the computer connectors & check for corrosion. You can clean them by plugging/unplugging the connectors multiple times or maybe you can use a small piece of emery cloth or an emery board. Make sure to blow any dust out of the connector.
Check the vacuum hoses. All hoses on a vehicle get brittle & crack w/age, then they leak. Use a vacuum gage to check vacuum.
I hope that you find the solution & get your Ford running again.

Engine wont start, has gas and spark?


Crank or cam sensor. Have a OBD II reader plug into it and see if you have any codes.

Oil around 1 spark plug well.


More than likely you have a leaking valve cover gastet. Not a head gasket.
