Have you checked the compression? Possible head gasket leak. A head gasket leak does not always contaminate the oil. Sometimes you can remove the plugs and check to see if one is not firing right or is wet. Good luck hope this helps and have a good day.

Why do I have to keep putting anti freeze in the radiator when I don't find anything leaking under the car


Check your engine oil you might have a cracked head gasket, the oil on the dipstick will look kinda of whote also check your coolant overflow for oil residue. If its all OK, fill your engine, I'd use just tap if your in a warm climate since your losing coolant that fast, and start the vehicle and just let it get up to normal operating temp and watch for a coolant leak under your vehicle.

92 Subaru Legacy 4 speed automatic transmission awd stops an rocks back in forth when manually placed in first gear, why?


I suspect that you have higher mileage on the transmission and its a worn out the first gear clutch pack. I would get it checked by a proper transmission repair shop.

Hi guys I am new on this, I will start all over, I got this big problem for me, I got this 2002 huyndai elantra gt, 1 week ago I was driving and the heat stopped working, no radiator leak, everything...


Ok, here is my take on your problem. As you may already know, it takes a car a few min. to actually warm up to operating temp. When the coolent reaches operating temp. the thermostat opens to circulate the coolent in the radiator. Now, as your drive, the air pushing against your car will actually blow some air through your heating system ducts and into the passenger compartment. Is it possible that your blower fan isn't working? Because while you are stopped, there would be no air forcing its way through your ducts, thus no heat. As your drive, your car gets up to operating temp, heats up, and the air pressure as your drive will blow some heat out into the passenger compartment? On a side note, if your thermostat is stuck in the open position, it would take it forever to warm up since it is circulating ALL the coolent even tho it isn't at operating temp. A thermostat stuck open will take 30 min or more before you actually feel any warmth, if at all in the winter.. your thermostat opens and closes constantly as the engine is running to keep it at its normal temp, usually around 160-180 degrees. If you live where it gets really cold, a thermostat stuck open likely will never get warm. If your blower motor works, and your engine don't overheat, im 98% sure its your thermostat.

I have a '98 Olds Silhouette cooling fans work when A/C is on but will not come on even when temp is above normal operating temp if A/C is off


Just saw your second posting, so the temp is still above normal. Could the sensor
that controls the fan be not reading the heat properly ? The antifreeze/coolant
issue could still be relevant, so I will re-post that info. Tho.
Electric cooling fans will sometimes come on after a vehicle is parked,
(It actually heats up when stopped), but not when it is rolling down the road
because the movement is applying some cooling effect to the engine.
\
If the engine is not actually overheating, then the fans may be working
normally. Also, make sure your water/antifreeze mix is correct by using a
specific gravity tester. It is a tube with 4 or 5 balls, some of which will float
to give you a reading. Contrary to popular belief, More is not better when it
comes to antifreeze/coolant. It needs water to work properly. Too strong a
mix will actually make your vehicle run cold so that the temp sensors and
heater will not function properly. The engine will not achieve proper operating
temperature and may actually damage some of the components by running
it cold, affect timing, spark, etc. This could also cause the symptoms you
describe. The engine would not actually reach the proper heat threshold
until you added the extra demand of the AC heat transfer. But the first criteria
would be whether the engine is actually overheating / or in normal range .
It may be that the colder weather is allowing the sensors to come on a little
later, warming the engine and heater components a bit more than they would
in warmer weather. Would be good to know what the actual coolant temp is.
Could check that with a guage, and also check to see what temp thermostat
you are using. 195 degrees in the winter would be better, 165/180 or so in the
warmer months

The heater just quit working. It worked fine yesterday but this morning it does not. The car is running a little hotter trhan normal but not overheating. Any ideas?


I would check to make sure the radiator is full and the overflow tank is filled to the proper level. It doesn't have to be very low for these cars to stop blowing heat.

Auto heater won't heat


Is it very cold in your location? If your thermostat is stuck in the open position the car will never get to temeture, is the car showing normal coolant tempeture? It could be as simple as low coolant, check to make sure your coolant is topped off and the car is coming up to a normal temp level! Try the cheap easy stuff first!!

Over revving


I don't know the year but it could be a defective IAC solenoid. If its an older truck then it could be a throttle cable.
