Check your carpet on the right side if it is damp it is your radiater leaking before changing radiater Inside compartement check for loose clamp on hoses...

It is one of two possibilities. First, the reservoir is cracked. It only leaks as the pressure builds up from the heat of the engine. then leaks out from pressure. Blows out and you wont see the coolant because the air from going down the road pushes it away and the heat drys it up. You have to look for water trails. Next is the hose from the reservoir to the radiator has a leak also. Same applies to this. If it is the hose. replace it, don't just cut some of. When you replace it, make sure there are no kinks in the hose. This causes other problem.

Does it emit white sweet smelling exhaust . if so head gasket has blown

There is either a pocket of air or the car is burning the coolant if there is no leak. check inside the car for any coolant leaking under the dash if so the heater core has a hole in it.

Ur coolant level sensor might need changing. If not, the circuit associated with the coolant level sensor needs to be inspected

That slushy brown stuff is signs of a blown head gasket. Have a code scanner hooked up to find out why the light is on, it will probably show coolant temperature sensor. Just out of curiosity, check the pvc valve (if your car has one), and see if it's clogged. If it is replace it, the crank case is not getting ventilated.

this vehicle is equipped with a factory anti theft system if when you try to start the engine and the anti theft light is on then the starter won't start even if your check engine light is not on you would have to scan the body module to pin point the problem to see if it's the anti theft system or the starter, go to a auto parts store like auto zone or pep boys or western auto these store offer free scanning to there customers. if this information has been helpful please let use know good luck

It sounds like an engine temp sensor is open.. When your engine is cold or anti-freeze is cold your ECU or ECM gets a signal from the temp sensor for cold engine start. It would make sense that it works fine when hot because the resistance on the sensor is a lot lower. Take an ohm meter if you have one and check the resistance across the temp sensor pins. When the engine is cold the resisitance should be really high. Start and warm up your car to normal temp and check it again. It should be a lot lower now. If not replace it. Hope this helps.

If your engine cools down when moving fast, you either have a problem with your water pump or your electric fans that cool off your radiator and a/c condenser. This is controlled by a temperature switch, but these fans should kick on instantly when A/C is selected.
