Barina over heating

Bought a 2005 holden barina from a legit mechanic, he told me if the engine light comes on to bring the car back and he will fix it which he did, the light doesn't come on anymore.. 3 months later I drive home and my car has a loud sizzling noise from some pipe attached to the engine. also looks like splatters of rust around the area. pls help :(

It appears that you have blown a hose. Check all hoses and if the hose is bulged past the hose clamp (grown out over the clamp) replace them all as the hoses are ready to burst.. Have a radiator shop do a flow test on the radiator to check for blocked cores or just replace the radiator as it is due for replacement . If there is signs of rust I would think that there is no coolant conditioner in the system ( anti boil-anti freeze) so I would remedy this .. NATRA radiator shops are accredited repair shops so seek advice from them as to the condition of the cooling system.

SOURCE: holden barina 2003

it means its due for service. If u wanna get rid of it without servicing the vehicle then as you start the car simultaneously push the ODOMETER reset button on the dash and it will wipe it. This will however just delay the point your car needs servicing.

SOURCE: rattling noise while accerlating 08 Subaru Outback

It is very hard to give you a reliable answer without knowing or hearing the noise for myself. I would take it to another local shop for a real mechanic to listen to the noise. It really ticks me off that the parts changers you have dealt with are so Un-helpful. When working on a Subaru they should have more respect for the customer. Anyway, I would take it to a shop in your area to allow another person to hear the noise. If you give me your area, I will suggest a shop in your area that maybe better at diagnosing your problem.

SOURCE: loud rattling noise coming from the engine

Are you losing power as well? if so it sounds like the camshaft is worn, this can be confirmed with a compression test

SOURCE: Rattling/clattering exhaust noise from front bottom

It could be all of the things mentioned in your post. A loose/bent/misplaced heat shield will make noise at different engine speeds as various parts vibrate and (((RESONATE))) in harmony with engine speed. Also, a shifted/loose catalyst brick in the converter can be the culprit. If you KNOW for a fact that it IS an internal fault of the converter, it will need to be replaced. Chunks can be broken off as it rattles about and **** sideways downstream in the exhaust. This not only blocks exhaust, but can lead to a dangerous burn-through condition if the piece of hot catalyst wedges in a bend in the pipe where yo do NOT have additional heat shielding.

SOURCE: Holden Viva- Automatic transmission troubles.

Hey mate, Had exactly the same problem. Suggest you take the car to your local auto transmission repair centre (not holden) and they can check the electrical diagnostics - if it the Transmission inhibitor Switch (as it was on mine - if so should cost you no more than 1 hour labour and about $75 - $95 for the switch.

It'll pay to have the crank sensor checked. They're known for heating up and stalling the car when they're no longer any good. Usually once it has cooled down the car will start but as soon as the sensor gets hot it'll stall again
