How come I have a bad smell when I start my 05 Pontiac Montana SV6 and heat won't kick in??


Any chance you have loose "fan" belts, they may be slipping and it smells like burning rubber? Or could be a bad coolant leak if the smell is like antifreeze, so not enough coolant to get to the heater coil. Have you checked your coolant level recently?
And perhaps all fluid levels need to be checked. Have you had it serviced by a competent well recommended Mechanic at the recommended service times?

No heat bulging rad. hose


Hose is bad and probably leaked some fluid while driving. Low fluid level will explain loss of heat. Hose has fiber reinforcement, if bulging it is bad. Look close you will find a hole, maybe pin sized. Replace hose, refill system, bleed out air by ... run engine till warm with rad cap off, turn heat on high & gently to med rev engine while topping off fluid.

2000 Mazda MPV Engine overheating


Head gasket is bad / leaking.
adding fluid on a regular basis is the first clue.
The coolant is seeping into the combustion chamber via a bad head gasket... and running out the tailpipe.

I have a 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee that leaks fluid under the car. Took it to Sport Durst. Told them about the leak and that it sounds like water flowing through the dashboard. My low coolant light was


Put a large piece of light paper under the cars or truck motor area and let it set overnight. In the morning see what color the fluid is. Put your finger in the fluid that has leaked if any is there and see if it feels like water or oil. Coolant could be orange or green depending on the type you use. Coolant can sometimes be confused with transmission fluid. Check the water hoses that go into the dashboard for leaks. Also check for dampness on the passenger side of the front seat on the carpet area. If it is wet it is your heater coil that has a leak. Hope this hopes.

Hi there? the oil leak that you getting on your pedals is not oil, it's brake fluid from the clutch slave cylinder. has the clutch pedal operation changed lately.
You have to replace it because it will break down soon.
Good luck.

Can you still drive a 99 mercury cougar with a power steering fluid leak


yes but it does determine how bad is the leak? If the leak is bad and you are driving you will still have steering but it could get real hard to turn which might present a accident for you if the fluid is low or empty. If the pump is real low or empty you run the possibilities of burning the pump and would have to be replaced. This leak may be small now but it will get worse,Also it is possible that any oil like substance our vehicles use has the possibilities of igniting into a fire if it makes contact on a heated surface
( EXHAUST SYSTEM ) Get this fixed immediately for your safety and all passengers that you may have !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

All the transmisssion fluid came out and it does drive but it's very hard to go forward and backward


Don't drive it without the transmission fluid, It will tear it up if it hasn't already.

2003 Grand Prix not blowing hot air. Does the heater coil need to be replaced? If so where is it located?


If the heater coil was bad, it would be leaking radiator fluid... probably into your dash/floorboard (depending on where it is installed in your model car). There is a switch that diverts the hot radiator fluid through the heater coil when you want heat. There is also an air diverter valve that helps to mix the hot and cold air. The fluid valve is controlled by the A/C settings control. The one that you use to choose between heater/air conditioner/vent/ defrost. The air diverter is controlled by the temp mixing controller. The most simple explanation is that one of those valves or the controller of one of those valves is not working. If the hot water cant be diverted through the heater coil, the coil can't exchange the heat (warming the air). If the air diverter (hot/cold controller) cant move to add heat, then all you will feel is air from the vent side (from outside) or from the A/C cooling the air.

I would guess that its either a controller or one of the valves themselves. Odds are, it is a controller. That tends to be what malfunctions first.

2004 BMW ci with 58K miles Car leaks reddish fluid after driving and emits odor similar to smell of popcorn. Temp guage always in middle, no idiot lights showing. Master Cylinder-no visible leaks Brake...


oh dear, this is going to be very bad new for you,take it from me the ATM fluid is leaking out of your gearbox, it could be a rear gearbox oil seal, it could be the front gear box oil seal leaking, even the oil cooler or pipes leaking but it is leaking some were, and if its got to be took out to put in a new seal your going to need to sell a kidney or some outher part of you to pay for it, if you can put up with the leak just keep filling up your ATF fluid dont let the gearbox run dry or its realy going to cost you, as it will seize up on you and burn its self out, thats a new gear box then??? costly very costly! if its only a little bit of oil leaking give the motor a good wash down with a power hose under it and fill the atf up go for a drive say 10 miles then look under it, look for fresh oil (ie:red oil) around the gearbox at both ends of it, if you see any that is proof its leaking bad!!! park it over a sheet of paper over night will show how much it leaks too, i would put up with it as long as pos bet if its due for an MOT give it a realy good power wash down first to get rid of any oil, a little leak will still pass, a big un, wont! any oil seal can just fail on you like this one has but they fail much faster if they get over heated due to lack of oil in them
sorry for the bad news, think of selling the kids to pay for a new gearbox,, now there's an idear?
