2001 grand am fuel smell in coolant now won't crank


You have a blown head gasket. This is not a cheap repair, the intake and exhaust manifolds have to come off, the head has to be removed and check for warp. The block has to be checked and the gasket replaced

If my water pump not working will it cause the coolant to come back out when i fill it yp and start the car


If you want to fill up the coolant,take the rad cap off start the car and let the engine get warm and wait for the thermostat to open and start circulating the coolant .Don't let this go on for to long or the very hot coolant will geyser out of the rad.Don't forget to fill your reservoir as well.good luck

Heater blows hot nnnnnnnthen cold ,,,,,,stays cold


To start, the first thing I would check is the fluid level in your cooling system. Do not remove the radiator cap if the engine is hot! The water will shoot out like a geyser and you could get burned or scalded by steaming hot water. Best to check it when the engine is cool.
If you need to add fluid it should minimally be a mixture of 50% water and 50% antifreeze. This way the fluid won't freeze in the winter or overheat in the summer.

Check the hose that runs from the radiator cap to the overflow container. Make sure it doesn't have any holes in it and it is not plugged up. Make sure the overflow tank has fluid in it to the level indicated on the tank.

These are basic, simple things to check. If these don't remedy the problem other possibilities are a bad thermostat, water pump, radiator cap, or a plugged heater core.

Overheating antifreeze must of leaked out


Refill radiator with engine cold.
If no drop in water level when full and with the cap off, then restart the engine.

Does the water spout out of the radiator like a small geyser? If so, then you likely have a failed head gasket or damaged cylinder wall.

If the level drops but does not spout out of the radiator, then check the water pump for damage and leakage.

If you find it difficult to find the source of the leak, then you may need to use a radiator pressure testor to apply pressure to the system, to allow the leak to become more obvious.

Error code 0172 on dodge caravan


Sure, have your system pressure checked. Worst case scenario, thermostat could be installed upside down or a bad head gasket. Also check for water in the oil or oil in the water. If you don't know how to do this ask at your local parts store.

What wud cause my 300m 3.5 to burn antifreeze


A couple scenarios- none of them exactly cheap.
1- Head gasket blew or corroded; did it overheat at all recently? It may show a cylinder or two as mis-firing.
2- manifold leak. Are you also getting a lean error code?
3- porous casting or crack developed.

If you open the cap on the radiator hose with engine cold, or if you happen to have a radiator with a conventional cap, is there any oil film or sludge? Is there any on the dipstick/crankcase? If so, there "might be" a crack i nthe engine block. If you leave the cap off the hose or the radiator and start it cold- if you suddenly get a geyser of coolant- the problem is likely a cracked head or the head gasket is the issue.

"Some" white smoke may be visible when the engine is cold right after startup- this is a small amount and is reasonably normal if slight.

95 Mazda Millenia runs very rough after overheating


Hi,
The compression test was a good test, but since you asked for ideas, I'd also check the following basic "naked eye" visuals:
1. Do you notice any white-ish smoke out the exhaust, especially after killing it then cranking back up?
2. With engine cold, take the radiator cap off and crank it. Does it act more violent than expected, like a geyser?
3. Loosen the oil pan drain screw to see if any water finds its way out from the bottom of the oil pan.
If so, to these tests... blown head gasket.
I hope NOT though... Good luck!

Overheating


Take off your radiator cap (when the car is cold) and then start it. If it looks remotely like a geyser in Yellowstone, you have a blown head gasket.
