Question about Cars & Trucks
Mechanic say that there is coolant getting in to the cylinder, engine overheats is spitting back into the overflow tank, after cool down I fill with coolant top off then it will run normal for the rest of the day, until the next morning it starts all over. just replaced trans $1200 now he wants $1800 to repair, should I junk it?
It depends on how much money you have invested in this car initially. I suggest that first of all you consider replacing the hands because more than likely they are warped or cracked. You are definitely looking at around 1200 dollar investment. Shop around don't settle for the first $1,800 quote. But you definitely have warped or cracked heads. I could shed more light on this if I knew exactly what model and make vehicle we were speaking about.
A thumbs up would be greatly appreciated if this answer is helpful to you. Have a GREAT DAY and GOD BLESS YOU.

there is a switch in the engine intake or cylinder head that controls the cooling fans. The switch is the one with only 1 green wire hooked to it. Turn the key to run, with the engine stopped pull this wire off and touch it to a ground( cylinder head, engine block) and the fan should start, if not look at the fuse, if it does you need to replace the switch.

Generally if one hose is hot, and the other hose is cold it indicates that they water is not circulating. You could have a defective thermostat. Take the thermostat out and run the engine without it. With the radiator cap off you should see a lot of water moving through. It that is the case, replace the thermostat and you should be ok. If there is no rapid movement of water it may be the impeller on the water pump came loose. This is rare, but it can happen since the impeller is usually pressed on the shaft. You should also check and see if you get a lot of bubbles when the car is running and the cap off. This often indicates a blown head gasket. Hope this helps.
