If it's not overheating, you may need to replace the radiator cap. Also look for small leaks at all your hose ends. Their could be a loose clamp on your hoses.

SOURCE: smoke is coming out from under my hood...checked antifreeze and oil so it fine

white smoke usualy tells about a leakage in the cooling. check that. dont forgett to refill. get it repaired or DIY. attention: could be really hot.

if it smells like fuel, a fuel line is broken. then dont drive any more since it can catch fire.

if the smoke is not white, go to the repair shop instantly.

SOURCE: engine wont start

Check all of your fuses then make sure that you are getting 12 volts from the battery. If starter is making a grinding noise, it sounds as if it is not getting enough voltage. If it is and makes a whirring noise, it may be the starter itself. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Heard a grinding sound under hood. Car then died.

So does the a/c still work, maybe your compressor is bad? Top off your oil and run the engine and see if you can find out where the oil came from?

No leak and 2003 nissan xterra smell like anti freeze check radiator,water pump.hoses.heater core.anti freeze level in radiator is perfect


If you can smell,then you have a leak,if the heater core has a pin hole,then the box that houses it will hold the antifreeze to wear you won't see any,have to take the box apart and see,check your hoses going thru the firewall to see if there leaking.

I have a 2003 Chrysler 300M that has started having vibration and a bubbling sound coming from under the hood.


your car is overheating-may be a number of things-blown head gasket would cause bad running and bubbling sounds-have you noticed antifreeze leak out-have you noticed a sweet smell,hot antifreeze-cheers Denny

Overheating and antifreeze smell


If you are smelling antifreeze inside the truck, it could be the heater core. Feel the carpet on the passenger side. If its wet its the heater core. A blown hose under the hood is easy to spot. The only other things it could be is a water pump, thermosat, or radiator. If the water pump is bad it will leak through the weep hole on the underside of it.
If no leaks anywhere, change the thermostat.

There is a grinding noise when i turn the steering wheel on my 2001 nissan xterra


Noises can be tough...especially over the internet where the noise cannot be heard....WHERE are you hearing the noise? Does it sound like it is INSIDE the passenger compartment or OUTSIDE, like in the engine compartment"?

Water leaking under dash on the passengers side of 2000 xterra


Only 2 things this can be. The air conditioner drain is plugged, or the heater core is leaking. If the water smells loke antifreeze then the heater core is leaking and needs replaced, if no smell then the AC drain is plugged. You can acces this from und3er the vehichle, should be a small tube near the firewall to drain outside the cab, just runn a wire up in it and see if something comes out like moldy water!

No heat in 2003 dodge grand caravan. can hear the core making noise at times and also smell antifreeze in the drivers seat occasionally but there is not water leaking in the floor boards and after 2 weeks...


The noise you hear is air bubbles in the core because it has no coolant in it = you do have a leak somewhere [ hose, radiator, waterpump, engine, etc.]. You may also be able to smell the coolant sometimes with a leak under the hood [ the fumes come in through the cowel vents through the heater]. Check the level in radiator when it's cool, if you have a leak the system won't draw coolant from the overflow bottle. A word of caution - these engines don't like to be overheated, they blow gaskets and crack cylinder heads. Should be repaired ASAP.

I changed the thermostat and put in a new radiator on my 99 hyundai elantra. It drove fine i guess for about a week, but then started overheating again and stopped on me! Any suggestions? I smelled some...


You have some kind of a leak in the cooling systemDo you smell antifreeze when your inside the vehicle dose the heat work alright It may also be an engine vacuum leak you need to start it look under the hood and listen to where the hissing noise is comeing from if its cooling you should see antifreeze see if the floor is wet inside it could be the heater core and check vacuum lines for splits cracks on disconnected lines Ycould check to see if the radiator is holding pressure take a towel and turn the cap see if its under pressure but its going to be hot don;t get burned

2004 nissan xterra supercharge there is a noise in the turbo and im not sure what is causing this noise eighter the pully or a barring inside the turbo.


Superchargers are notorious for going through bearings.However to narrow it down take a spray bottle of water and as the car is running squirt some water on the pulley .If the noise goes away for a bit then its the pulley if not then it may be coming from the supercharger bearings. You can take them apart if you're handy and change the bearings out,if not its off to your local garage I'm afraid.Good Luck
