The engine light is flashing on. Also car 'died' all power down briefly at about 20kms


I had this happen to my car after my mechanic said do not worry about oil light flashing intermittantly it is probably a sensor.
Now my car blows oil out the exhaust and is missing a cylinder or two and is hard to start and also lost power at about 20 km/h). I have done a ring or burnt out the rings which means a replacement engine ($3000 AUD) or replacement car is required in my situation. (too repair engine $6000 AUD which a different mechanic has told me they just do not bother repairing as labour is intensive and a reconditioned motor is cheaper)
(1) Check if oil is being blown out the exhaust pipe of your car when engine is cold. When engine is hot smoke with oil smell comes out. (burnt out rings)
(2) Check is Water is coming out the exhaust pipe of your car when engine is cold. When engine is hot steam comes out (blown head gasket possible if steam) (Cost estimate minimum $1500 AUD - depends on if head is warped or cracked)
(3) Check cooling water levels if running low all the time see (2)
(4) check engine has oil in it could be point (1) causing oil loss
(5) check all fan belts are working as designed and not broken

Smoke coming out of engine


White smoke? Coolant is getting in the cylinder and the white smoke is really steam. Sounds like you have a blown head gasket. Bad news is that it needs to be replaced...good news is that the inline 6 cylinder engine is one of the easier head gaskets to replace. I've never replaced a head gasket but did it on my Cherokee just three months ago. If you tag your parts and pay attention how they are taken off you can do it. The other option is to replace the engine as they are pretty cheap to get. Good luck.

I over heated,the serpentine belt snapped. Opened the hood to find steam rapidly coming out of both the antifreeze and out of the engine right by the head gasket. It wasn't smoke not blue or black jus


Perform a compression test on your cylinders. One unfortunate result of overheating is the blown head gasket. Without compression your motor will not run. Tester are not super expensive or some stores will lend tools.

2005 Toyota Camry 4 cylinder intermittently won't start


try starting the car and while running disconnect the negative battery cable,if the car still runs turn on the head lights,if the car dies the alternator is weak. I think its weak and can charge the battery as long as the lights are off,but cant keep up when theyare on. so if drive most of the time in the day time you are ok as long as you dont have to start the car too many times. when you drive with the lights on and the engine slows to an idle like when you park the car dies. make sense?

2002 Town & Country 3.8 v-6 starts but just dies when put into gear


Check the wire harnesses around the exhaust cross-over. Many have found degraded wires there, as I did. The cover is held by Velcro. Also change your spark plug wires, especially the rear ones.

I have a 2003 mitsubishi galant ES 4 cylinder and have a check engine light message on i had the code read at auto zone and they told me the third cylinder is misfiring and when it idles it jumps around...


Misfire means you need spark plugs replaced. Or spark plug coils.

That's why the whole car starts shaking because its running basically on 3 cylinders and not 4 as supposed. There is no gas compression on the 3rd cylinder because once again the spark plug is "misfiring"

There also might be even a bigger problem which could be the distributor cap where the coils are connecting outside the engine.
once you fix the problem the check engine will turn off immediately

hope that helps.

Coolant overflowing out of expansion tank no boil no steam


As you've stated driving around town it's fine, and everything is working well. For the symptoms, there are 2 possible causes:
1. Your cooling fans are not working.
2. Your radiator needs to be replaced.
I'm sure you can determine which it is, and I wish you luck on your repair.
