Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

I really need your advice on a serious problem:

I have suspected for some time now that my wife has been cheating on me. The usual signs: if the phone rings and I answer, the caller hangs up; she goes out with the girls a lot. I try to stay awake to look out for her when she comes home but I usually fall asleep. Anyway last night about midnight I hid in the shed behind the boat. When she came home she got out of someone's car buttoning her blouse, then she took her underwear out of her purse and slipped them on. It was at that moment crouched behind the boat that I noticed a hairline crack in the outboard engine mounting bracket. Is that something I can weld or do I need to replace the whole bracket?

It depends a lot on the metal that is cracked, and upon your equipment for welding. If it is aluminum you will need to do inert gas shielded welding. If it is ordinary mild steel you can just grind out the harling crack and weld with a good grade of steel rod or wire your choice.

04 Buick Rendezvous over heated last night. I pipe-wrenched the rad-cap off to find no hole. just inches of brown mud. I assume it is engine rust. this car has never been flushed in 220,000 miles. do

Take it to a radiator specialist or dealer ASAP before you overheat the engine again and do some seriously expensive damage - at the very least you need a radiator flush.

Anti pollution system fault light is on.

If the Anti pollution warning light is coming on the possible causes are endless. If the car is driving ok then that is a good sign, but please remember that modern management systems can mask problems quite well. The safest advice is to get it looked at and see what fault codes are appearing and then a diagnosis can begin, as leaving it is not going to be a good thing, it can go from a minor problem to more serious issues. At least the light is not flashing, which usually means an emission compliance problem and even more serious, but even so I would advise protecting your vehicle by getting it checked out as soon as possible to avoid potential damage.
A fault in the ignition can cause an engine misfire and unburnt fuel gets into the exhaust causing the anti-pollution light to be triggered.

Check the ignition system for signs of damp or loose connections.------- I suggest get the car scanned at autozone service center.Its absolutely free to get car scanned.This will show the problem if you receive the error code.-------- Thanks.Helpmech.

I just got my engine replaced in my 2004 mazda rx-8 automatic. I went to get an oil change and they found that my oil smelled like gas. I need some advice on what to do. thank you

This is often caused by blow by where the cylinder walls are worn down and the rings are no longer providing a tight enough seal. If you suspect that could be the problem do a leak down test or take it to a mechanic to do a leak down. Once that's ruled out there are a lot of other possibilities, but most are less serious and might be running rich like you mentioned, carb/float issues, and a number of other possibilitiles.

My experience with both cars and motorcycles is that if you have a really strong gas smell in the oil shortly after doing changes, it's usually blow by

I have a vibration that starts about 1700 rpms at 60-65 mph (give or take). I have had tires balanced, checked u joints drive shaft, front hub bearing replaced, new shocks all around, driver side new...

let your wife drive or slow down. Seriously, sounds like you have covered just about everything. Try increasing or decreasing your tire pressures a little just to see if it has any effect.

I have a rough idle on start up and then it smooths out also im losing antifreeze with no sign of a leak at all

I would suspect you have a blown head gasket. This is very serious and must be repaired immediately or serious engine damage will occur. A compression test will verify if you have a blown gasket. Stop driving the truck until you have this repaired.

2002 Montero limited overheats can't find problem.

Sounds like the thermastat is stuck closed. The water in the engine would get very hot while the radiator remains cool.Don't drive the car this way as serious engine damage will occur.
