Coolant temperature sensor controls the fuel metering. When one fails the engine is slow to start at first and there is a strong odor of gasoline. Turn it off and it starts right up. As the problem gets worse the engine may fail to start.

Does a water pump gasket problem lead to other gasket problems- such as intake or head gaskets/ and is it associated with having coolant loss issues?


If the low coolant from the water pump leaking has caused the engine to overheat, then the cylinder head(s) can warp and the head gasket(s) will leak also.

My chevy impala 2006 is overheating. I checked the coolant reservoir and it was empty. I added Dex-Cool coolant to the reservoir, cranked the car but gauge still goes past the normal temperature. How...


Sounds like your thermostat is not opening. When you replace it (engine cold) make sure you obtain the correct temperature setting (170-190 for example) for you specific vehicle.

Engine over heated stalled out and will not start


FIRST OF ALL CHECK ENGINE COOLANT LEVEL IF LOW YOU NEED ADD MORE COOLANT CHECK FOR LEAKING TOP AND BOTTOM RADIATOR HOSES, CHECK RADIATOR FOR LEAKS. IF YOU DID NOT LOSE MUCH COOLANT THERMOSTAT COULD BE STUCK CLOSED.WHEN ADD COOLANT CRANK VECHICLE AGAIN CHECK BOTH RADIATOR HOSES THEY BOTH SHOULD BE HOT. IF TOP RADIATOR HOSE GOING TO ENGINE BLOCK COLD AND BOTTOM RADIATOR HOSE COLD WARM THE THERMOSTAT IS STUCK CLOSED. IF ENGINE OVERHEATING WHILE SITTING IN LONG TRAFFIC LINE YOU COULD HAVE FAULTY ENGINE COOLANT TEMPERATURE SENSOR.IT CONTROLS COOLANT FAN AT SET TEMPERATURE.IF COOLANTS FAN NOT RUNNING WHEN OVERHEATING.EITHER COOLANT FAN FUSE RELAY FAULTY OR FAN MOTOR DEFECTIVE OR FAN MOTOR WIRING CONNECTOR HAVE BROKE WIRES.IF COOLANT FAN IS RUNNING WHILE ENGINE OVERHEATING CHECK CRANK OIL AT OIL DIP STICK OIL LOOKS LIKE MILK SHAKE YOU HAVE BLOWED HEAD GASKET. WARNING DONT KEEP DRIVING VECHICLE WHEN ENGINE OVERHEATING YOU WILL CAUSE ENGINE AND TRANSMISSION DAMAGE.

I need to know how much oil to put into mi toyota starlet 1984 3k cause i dont have a dip stick


Most vehicles when changing oil uses 5 quarts of oil. I believe that is any vehicle even trucks after you have drained the old oil out of it and is changing your oil. It should last a good 5 months but it is best to change your oil about every 3 months. that is what we do around here and we have 4 vehicles

Was adding coolant to engine grabbed wrong can added motor oil by mistake what to do???? less than a quart of engine oil went into surge tank engine was not running


As long as it did not go into the actual cooling system, siphon out the contents of the reservoir and add a good dis-washing detergent (dawn is best). Use hot water. siphon out the contents again and repeat till it's reasonably clean.A tiny bit of oil in the cooling system won't hurt (a visible haze) but too much can cause the hoses to deteriorate from the inside.

My car has a oil leak and i added a quart the other day and now the oil light is flashing and remaining lite sometimes. i checked the oil and there is actually a liitle over full in it.


Over-full can be just as bad as under-full. The crank will make contact with the oil and cause a froth of oil and air. Air is a very poor lubricant and will cause serious engine damage. Park the vehicle on a perfectly level surface and shut the engine off. Wait at least 30 minutes and then check the oil level. If it is over-full drain out enough to get it down to the full mark. Never ever over-fill an engine. Your car holds 4.5 quarts with filter change.

Gasket woes


You've most likely had a blown head gasket from the beginning of the coolant leak. It's now so bad the engine won't run and has probably been severely damaged from running coolant through the oil galleys.

You'll have to transport it to a garage to get diagnostics and an estimate to determine if it's worth fixing. My guess is it's going to be very expensive.

Burning oil, but dont know why


Nowdays 1 Qt. in 3000 miles, really isn't that bad, even some new vehicles claim that's normal. I know with my current vehicles, both at approx. 150,000-160,000 miles, they won't use any for first while after an oil change, but then after mileage starts adding up again, they start to use a little, approx.I Qt, every 1000 miles or so, until it's changed again. I've switched to the high mileage oil, just for piece of mind, as they say it revives seals, and has added protection for the higher mileage engines.This time around I'm thinking of adding "Lucas" & see how it works, as I've heard some pretty good reports on it, just to see if it will prolong that oil breakdown, at mid change.
