How many gas miles left in Buick Rendezvous 2006 when dash lights say empty


That varies since the fuel tank sending units are slightly different from vehicle to vehicle, engine sizes have different mpg ratings, and people's acceleration and stopping habit differ widely. If you need to ask this question, you'll only need to ask it once. After you run out of gas, you'll probably never let it happen again. Also, FYI, it is not good for the fuel pump to run dry, as this can cause overheating and failure. Another reason never to go below 1/8 tank....

92 Saab keeps dying, won't hold charge....


You have the battery and the alternator and the alternator belt and if they are working fine there must be something that is draining the battery. You need an auto electrician to check what the drain is. In such cases,on various vehicles, the BCM, body control module, proves to have something to do with it. Get A GOOD AUTO ELECTRICIAN to check if there is a particular component

Heater problems 2009 dodge nitro v6.


Possible, with rad cap off, let vehicle idle until coolant fan comes on then shut vehicle off for 30 minute cool down. Top up rad, install cap and drive and recheck heater operation and any overheating.

2005 Kia Optima overheating during driving. Mostly when accelerating or going uphill. Fluid and coolant seem to be fine. Radiator fluid looks to be circulating to the thermostat when engine is at normal...


When the radiator fans stop functioning properly, the engine temperature will rise as there will be insufficient airflow to cool the radiator. The spike in temperature will be the highest when the vehicle is idling at a stop light or just stopped, but should subside once the vehicle begins moving again.
get the fan cked out.

Vehicle ran fine yesterday. Today it wouldn't


This is going to sound strange but, have someone get over to where your starter is. While you try and start it have them tap on it slightly with a small hammer.
I t could be the brushes are hanging up.
Otherwise, I would pull the starter and have an auto center test it.
Please let me know what you find.

Vehicle won't restart after driving for a while


You said it's runs fine, but it just won't start after driving a while. If thermostat or temp sensor was bad you'd be overheating. It sounds like a vapor lock. Good luck

A/C only works while I am driving


This is a characteristic of R-134a. The cooling efficiency at idle has improved slightly over the years with design changes to the hardware but performance still lags that of R-12.

Due to small size radiators and thus reduced coolant capacity in use in nearly all vehicles today, most manufacturers program the pcm to turn the cooling fan on when it sees an a/c "on" signal. This is to prevent overheating of your vehicle as well as keep air moving across the a/c condenser to improve cooling efficiency as much as possible.

While definitely frustrating, the symptoms you describe are not unusual.
