Pull the spark plugs and see if there is any oil on them.
depending on mileage on it,that could cause it.

My 2008 altima made a wihning sound and lost power while climbing a hill,after letting it cool down it worked again

did you overheat the engine?
did the engine RPM rise and not car speed. (tranny slip is bad news)
fix cause of overheating if it did. now.
it will return. (99% do)

all cars have excess cooling capacity so , on flat ground and cold days
you dont need that,but on a hot day up hill you do. see?

there are lots of tests. for cooling. do you have tools. or can you buy them.?
the tests are easy. but most folks dont have tools or want them and only want us to guess.
sorry ,guessing is too expensive.
here ill take a few wild guesses (read this in any book on engines)

  • Rad tubes clogged.
  • thermostat bad, or installed wrong.
  • low coolant level in the RAD not the overfill tank the RAD cap hole. (check only when COLD engine !!!)
  • Air in the system.
  • AF fluid leaked out. (green/yellow puddles under car)?
  • loose fan belt, or missing, or shredded? or mangled?
  • water pump impeller rusted 1/2 way through.
  • engine problems, serious. like wrapped or cracked heads.
  • Crank engine block, or bad head gasket.
  • there are more, but stop.

Car would not start

you get six months parts and labor. take it back and tell them the fault if you had belts changed including timing like you would on a normal service. not starting or going up hills is a good sign the timing is not right.

3002 Pt Cruiser GT - 53, 000 miles - first start of the day - went about 1/4 mile down hill, engine light came on. Had put gas in the day before thought maybe the gas cap was lose. Tightened gas cap, went...

It sounds like a sensor is intermittantly loosing the data stream. Since the engine light came on, I would go to a reputable shop and have them check for codes. Many auto parts stores will do this as well and sometimes for free. Can't beet free. If I were to guess I would say something like the camshaft postion sensor is going bad, Or the crankshaft postion sensor, Or something like that. The code will tell which one it is.

Good luck, and if you have any further questions please....ask!

My 2000 Jeep Cherokee has been overheating esp. when my air conditioner is on and im driving up any sort of hill. it also makes a squealing noise for a little bit when my air is on too. A few days ago it...

First when it's cool I'd replace the missing antifreeze. Then I'd have the Serpentine belt checked and/or replaced, while that's being done I'd have the pulleys, adjuster and waterpump checked.

Suzuki esteem 2000 1.8l wagon. Check engine light on. Trouble accelarating in rainy weather. Any ideas? also how could i check the trouble code myself without obd device? Cheers!

Sounds like the moisture or the wetness from the rain is getting within the firing area. Try using Di-electric grease on the plug boots and coil pack. This prevents wetness from entering the firing area and causing diffused spark. If you have an Advance auto or Auto zone near you, they will usually check the code for you for free.

My esteem ac fails to cool well on hot days


Well i think its a compressor problem. Check out if there is no gas leak in any of the cooling pipes. Its long since brought your esteem, check the blower speed also, it also makes a diffrence in cooling.

Fitting a new climate control system would reduce your mileage and can even make you change your battery and reduce the life of your engine.
