You have oil mixing with water which means your water pump is gone bad.

Please call an expert from a garage to come fix it for you and dont try starting it again so as not to knock the engine.

Be careful.

Rate this solution please.

My Car is going to the red in temperature gauge to the H. I put water in the car and let it sat, when drove it again it went right back high. It never acually ran hot with steam help?


Your thermostat may be blocked or clogged. Try filling the radiator when the motor is cooled down. Then leave the cap off the radiator and start the car, you should see water circulating once the car warms up. If the water is not moving then there is a clog which points to a thermostat or water pump.

Car will run for about 20-30 minutes and shuts off. But will start again...?


have the fuel pressure checked to ensure that it's consistent. If you have a cel light on check for those codes as well. also check for a vacuum leak and check for a stuck egr valve.

Car ran fine drove it twenty min went to start it again wouldnt start went back an hour later started right up drove it 15 min and it died again changed the plugs and fuel filter still wont start


This sounds more like a crankshaft position sensor. When they start going bad they will work when vehicle relatively cold but fail when hot.

Hope this helps, it it does please leave feedback and vote Thank You and Good Luck

No it doesn't have fuel. What test did you do.? The fuel filter is dirty or the fuel pump is mechanically bound once in awhile.

My 94 honda accord ran hot and now wont start


Sorry. Could also be a cracked head or block. Take the spark plugs out and see if they are wet.  Charge battery and turn engine over with the coil grounded and the sparkplugs out. If water flyes out of any cylinder,you may have to disassemble the engine.
