SOURCE: Car stalled and won't start again

Sounds like it might be either the fuel filter or the fuel pump, cause if you ran the tank down, you probably had sludge in the bottom of the tank that you sucked into the engine, you can try using a fuel system cleaner, you may have sucked sludge into the injectors running it, Zmax sells a fuel system cleaner, or there is one called RUN RIGHT, I would try putting some of that in letting it sit a few min then after it sat a few to soak in and break down the sludge, then start the car up, kick your idle up to around 1500 RPM do not go higher then that cause you will damage the engine, try that and see if that works for you, if not then I is probably the fuel pump or filter.
hope this helps.

SOURCE: just replaced radiator, but temp. gauge is rising to the red line

preform a pressurized collant flush , take it to a raidior shop to have it done , they will clean and blow out all blockages that might cause your car to over heat. also check to make sure you dont have air pockets in your anit freeze, if you do you need to bleed the system out after you have it flushed , your car should have a blead valve to let out the axcess air ,if not drive it down the road with the cooaint overflow cap off , not the radiator but you need to flush out the system first , add new anti freeze then bleed out all air pockets, hope this helps

When making a turn car saputters and blows a cloud of white smoke


Sorry to tell you this is most like a head gasket leak, or a crack in engine cylinder head. The white smoke is usually anti-freeze burning. When the motor heats up the metal expands and can plug the leak. Do a search on you tube for Scotty Kilmer He has some good videos and information on head gasket leaks. It's usually very expensive to repair mechanically, but he suggests some sealants. If the leak is not too bad the sealant may work. Some cars are notorious for bad head gaskets.

The other thing it may be is oil burning if it's more of a blue gray smoke. When the car sits overnight, on older cars if the valve seals leak, some oil can may accumulate down into the engine cylinder. When the car starts this burns off. If a piston in the motor has a broken ring it can continue to smoke.

The best way to determine your problem is to check the levels of antifreeze and motor oil when the car is cold. Do NOT try to check the antifreeze when the car is hot, or you can get sprayed with hot antifreeze. Good luck.

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.

My car leaks antifreeze smokes when u turn it off but doesn't get hot


a simple pressure test will tell you where the leak is coming from. typically a car can nave very low anti-freeze and not over heat, the smoke that you are seeing is most likely anti-freeze that is getting on the engine or exhaust manifold and causing the leaking coolant to smoke ( burnt coolant will have a sweet odor). chances are that you have a loose or bad hose clamp or hose some place. However it is my opinion that you should start with a pressure test and isolate where the leak is coming from.

Car is leaking antifreeze and over heating even though there is antifreeze in the reservoir and is smoking after I turn car off. I bought a bottle of stop leak for radiator's and even added that and it...


the water pump is what pumps the anti-freeze half of anti-freeze is water so its called a water pump. but to me it sounds like theres something slugging up your radiator theres a small drain on the side if nothing comes out then its clogged, if it does then i would agree with your friend about the pump hope this helps :)

Oil is smoking near dip stick,won't go over 10 mph, now won't even start.It had been overheating for a while we filled it up with anti freeze 50/50 then the oil started smoking. 1996 chrysler concorde.


you did put the antifreeze mix in the radiator and not in the oil cap didnt you?

Sounds like you put the water where the oil goes!

you may have a jammed thermostat if you didnt do this, or badly out of whack ignition timing.

I have a 1994 Honda accord ex. It is leaking antifreeze


If your antifreeze is leaking into your engine oil, it will destroy the engine quickly. Check the level of both. But...you need to get a pressure gauge on it to apply pressure to the cooling system to see where the coolant is going first. White smoke is a sign of coolant in the engine oil.

2000 Jetta is Leaking antifreeze and smoking


I think you mean you saw water vapor (some call it steam) not smoke.

You probably have a hose leaking (badly). If it's not a hose, your water pump shaft seal is probably kaput.

MY 2000 MAXIMA IS HAVING LOTS OF ISSUES


Your antifreese is leaking through the engine block The white smoke that you see coming out off the tail pipe is steam from heating up the antifreeze. This problem needs to be taken to a mechanic because your engine may have a blown head gasket or a cracked block. You keep having to fill it up with antifreeze because it is evaporating inside your engine block. Check your oil and see if the color is like a white milky liquid. If so then its definitely your head gasket. Try not to run the car to much like this because you will crack the engine. This is a pretty expensive job. You may want to consider a different vehicle because who knows what else will go wrong with this vehicle. I hope this helps you.
