If not overheating you simply have a leak. We're not there to diagnose, so either take to a shop or Google prado coolant leak

I've got a 2005 ford courier 4x4 4l v6 with a shot starter motor.Also got a 2000 ford courier 2.6l wreck with a good starter.Could I use the starter out of the 2.6l in the 4l?Would they be compatible?


probably not as there are 2 different motors
you can pull them both out , check the starter nose for orientation, bolt holes , body shape , no of teeth on the pinion

Losing coolant


take it to a radiator shop and have the system pressure tested
if the pressure remains static at pressure start the engine and see if the pressure drops
if it does indicates a water pump seal when running
check the drain hole under the pump housing for stains and water marks
something the garage should have done

I'm dealing with a 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee with 3.7 litre V6. I just replaced a leaking radiator and thermostat and the car still runs hot. The fan is working and I see no leaks. What's next? Tell...


The rise in engine temp after replacing the radiator and thermostat could possibly be caused by air pockets trapped in the cooling system. You will need to run the engine with the radiator cap off and let the air escape. DO THIS only when the engine is cold, and let it build up to temp. Coolant will over flow during this process, but eventually coolant will need to be added once the air is released.

Hi there my C55 use every 1500 Km one liter of oil is this normal


Oil consumption is outside specification, and needs around a litre of oil every 7 500km, not unusual for a race-bred engine. But, if you are only getting 1 litre for only 1500, you might want to change brand of oil, or ensure you are using the right type of oil.......

Oil level drops after 2000 kms


sounds about right,in fact thats good,toyota state that oil burn/usage should be about 1/2 litre to every 1000km and will do nothing until it gets to 1 litre every 500km under warranty......remember that as a cars mileage gets higher 5/30 oil is too thin,go to 10/40, then when 1 litre to 1000km is reached go to 20/50.(toyota cars are filled with 10/40 semi synthetic when new.).

For a 2008 vw Passat, is it normal to burn 2 qrts of oil between changes? 4 cyl 2 0 turbo


VW RECKON that oil usage around 1/2 litre per 500km is acceptable !!!!!!!! yeah right...i suppose it does lubricate the turbo blades....and the exhaust pipe internally....you could use 20/50 instead of 5/40 that would cut it down,but not do much good to the engines long life..... VW reckon about 150,000m before rebuild.

There is a coolant leak in my 1996 chevy camaro. it has the 3.4 litre V6. I replaced the intake gaskets and still have a slow coolant leak into the engine oil? Could it be a head gasket?


Since you used a question mark after "engine oil", I assume that you're not too sure where the coolant is going. While it's certainly possible for the coolant to end up in your oil, you should be able to see byproducts of combustion in your coolant (a very dirty coolant) if the head gasket is leaking. It could also force coolant out of your overflow as you drive, but not while you are sitting idle, making it hard to actually see if this happening to your coolant. Check your coolant for signs of this "blow-by". If your engine is losing power, you might want to do a cylinder balance check.
