    You have a leaking engine cylinder head gasket, there is no other reason for this but that.

Nope you have a shot head gasket or a cracked block

Fill the radiator with water and run the engine with the filler cap off

If there are lots of bubbles coming out of the radiator or the water flows right out of the top the head gasket has popped.

You can try the liquid cooling system repairs from Holts such as Radweld or there is a powder called Ce-lit

Both are stop gap repairs

The head needs to come off be skimmed and pressure tested

If it passes that then it is a new gasket and a re-build

Coolant not staying, smoke and smell for the exhaust jeep liberty 2002


Borrow a radiator test kit from autozone or buy one fro harbor freight. Pump it up to around 18psi to See if it holds for about an hour. If not you probably have a blown headgasket. If its white smoke...its your coolant being burned in the cylinder and vaped out your exhoust..

Broken water pump bolts


If you remove the water pump and the shank if the broken bolts are exposed,try removing them with a bolt extractor.you may have to heat it up with a small torch. A propane torch used to sweat plumbing fittings will work.If the bolts are broken off in the block you will have to center punch them and drill them out.

White smoke at exhoust and puch water out of the radiator


Blown head gasket or cracked head. I'll guess this happened after overheating the engine. The compression of the affected cylinder will blow coolant out of the radiator and coolant in the cylinder burning shows up as white smoke in the exhaust.12_24_2012_1_46_50_pm.png

Car died, water runs out side of car below timing belt, belt doesn't appear to be broken


Ouch sounds like your water pump is broken. That can be really a bad thing. The belt doesn't have to be broken for the water pump to be ruined. Check your oil... as long as your oil isn't milky looking meaning your car overheated and ruined the heads or seals then you should be okay at getting the water pump (and timing belt as they go hand in hand) replaced.

My 94 mazda 626 lx dumped radiator fluid on the ground i believe that its the water pump but dont know where it is or how to change it


Broken water-pump don't dump water when they are bad. They leak bit-by-bit through their bleed holes. You may have a broken hose. You may test the leaking again with plain water, and while the engine is running open the hood and see where the leak is coming from.
If your water-pump is out, you will have to replace it togethet with the timing-belt. And it would be best to get the Haneys repair manual which is more detailed for this job. The water-pump is bolted to the engine side, protected by black plastic covers.

91 Maxima Gasoline odor when I first start the car


If it is running fine, the busted bolt isn't the source of the gasoline smell. The intake manifold has vacuum, so the smell wouldn't be getting out, air would be going in, and a vacuum leak would give you poor idling. The exhaust manifold wouldn't have much raw gasoline smell. But it would have loud noise if the broken bolt were causing an exhaust leak.

Check that the vapor recovery line is not broken or disconnected. The hose connectors get cracked. If that were broken, it would cause a gasoline smell after the car has been sitting, especially if it has been sitting in the sun, heat driving gasoline vapor out of the tank. It is supposed to condense in the vapor canister, but some escapes if the line is broken. If it is broken, driving would **** out the gasoline from the line and the wind would dissipate the smell.

Or it could be a leaking injector. With the injector cover off, engine idling and cool, you can visually look for raw gas around the injectors and injector rail connections.

Hope this helps.

Lots of black smoke comming out exhoust pipe


It sounds like your fuel pressure regulator is bad. It is located on the end of one of the fuel rails, it will have a vacum line hooked to it. Pull the vac line as soon as you shut it off, if there is gas in the vac line the diaphram is bad or it could be stuck open that is why you have black smoke and are using alot of fuel. You should be able to purchase for around $60.00

I have a 98 intrique . as i was picking up speed my car cugged and my rpm's bounced high then down and then after trying to drive through it i was able to hit about 65 mph but still noticed the hesitation...


yes. your exhoust problem has likely caused this.as a result,the oxygen sensors in the exhoust system are probably now bad.these sensors will couse the ses light to stay on.
