I have a 2005 Trailblazer Transmission making knocking sound change filter & fluid drove 40 miles no OD. 3 MILES NO GEARS AT ALL. need help.

What do you mean by no gears at all? Will it not move forward or backward? Will it move but not upshift? Check the level. IF the level is ok the transmission will need to come out. The knocking noise could be a broken flex plate.

I have a 92 Acura Legend L V6 engine. My acura had been running hot until I put a brand new radiator on it, I drove the car for appro 40 miles one way and back, still didn't run hot. The car heater...

Thermostat improperly installed. (backwards) Or possibly you could have a blown head gasket and a bad thermostat at the same time. The head gasket could be letting exhaust gasses into the cooling system. A bad (stuck open) thermostat could "mask" this problem by allowing the coolant to circulate through the radiator when it is not supposed to. Thus, installing a new thermostat would trap the exhaust gasses in the cylinder head and cause the overheating.

Radiator warning light flashed on and off several times on the way to work today. Tonight, did the same thing and then stayed on. I drove to an appointment several miles away. When I came back out...

if there is no noticable leaks might be head gasket. Check to see if a lot of vapour comming from exaust. You may have to get a pressure test on cooling system.

On my 1992 lincoln town car i forgot to put my radiator cap back on and drove for 40 miles then i smell something i pulled over to put water in the radiator and it all came back out what could have went...

The engine must be running to add coolant to a hot engine. When your water hit the head/block it vaporized and blew back. The engine is probably OK even though it probably lost some coolant and got hot.

Engine temp gage spikes to 260 degree when

are you sure the cooling fans are working?
Is the coolant temp gauge telling the truth?
have you lifted the hood and heard the coolant bubbling into the overflow?
Or heard the tinging sound of a red hot engine?
If he did a liquid test with the dye,and it changed colors it should have changed very fast,
Another thing to think about if he was to take the fan belt off,and pull the thermostat housing off,and removed the thermostat,Now pour coolant into the thermostat hole to almost the top,Now start the car and see which side the bubbles come from,left or right,that will be the gasket that is leaking not both.

My son bought a 1987 2 wheel drive 4 cly. the lights did not work he replaced a fuse and several lights they worked fine untill he drove it about 10 miles and then the lights quit again. he drove it home...

It seems to me you want to follow that broken wire to find out where is goes, on the hope it powers the lights?
When you have a short circuit like this, The easiest way to do it is to put an oscillating pulse down it, and then trace for it with a signal receiver and speaker. Harbor freight sells the pair for tracing phone lines, for under $50. You could make your own with a flasher to generate, and an inductive ammeter, galvanometer, or a coil and speaker. Or you could just assume it has to go to the fuse block, ignition switch or something big and important, so you could look until you found what used that size and color wire. Of you could let it get hot and feel the heat or wait til it shrivels and use that to identify it. But it is probably cut through its insulation where it goes through the firewall. Although I had one car where the accelerator cable sawed through the wire harness.

First when ever the car temp. gauge goes above normal you need to pull over RIGHT AWAY!!!! Your car has a high rate of blowing the engine when run to hot for too long!!! Have you driven the car since this happened? Was there any funny smells... like Antifreeze?? Smoke?? It's possible that it needs a thermostat... If you had NONE of the above. I would suggest to take it some where you trust and get it checked out... I would also have them check to make sure the engine is not blown before putting in too much money!
