I set my hot water to come on once a day. All was fine, until I changed the time. Now the hot water does not come on. I believe I may have accidentally changed the setting?

SOURCE: started running hot one day, and filled coolant.

Check your oil and see if it looks like chocolate milk. If the engine is completely cool (like it's been sitting overnight), unthread your oil drainplug a little until fluid starts to come out. You might have coolant in it. If you don't have coolant in your oil, and are still having the problem, have your block tested. It's really easy to do yourself and you can rent the block tester at Autozone for $25.00 (you get it back once you return it) and the block test fluid for $8.99. Follow the directions. If the test fluid turns green or yellow you have combustion/emission gases in your coolant. If this is so, you can undo the spark plug wires on first one head then the other, this will tell you which cylinder is leaking. If you don't want to do this, take out each spark plug and look for coolant on the threads or white corrosion. This is all leading toward a blown head gasket.

Another problem with this car comes up in the cooling system. If you're still using the red coolant, this is really acidic for your cooling system and has been known to eat away the impeller blades of your water pump. You can check the seals by seeing if you have water coming out of your weep hole. If so, replace the water pump. You can also get your cooling system pressure flushed at a shop where they do a reverse flush and chemical flush. After this, switch to the green coolant which doesn't have the acidity of the red stuff.

Finally, there are also problems with electric scale in the heater core. You can put a wire that is grounded to the frame against your heater core (secure it with a hose clamp to the heater core), this will draw away the electro-magnetic field that leads to the break-down of your coolant. Let me know how things go.

SOURCE: after it sets you have to cut key on and off

I've got an old Buick Park Avenue with 200,000 miles on it that doe the exact same thing. It is caused by fuel leaking past the injectors while the vehicle sits overnight. Your problem may be something else. Have the computer scanned for codes. That's usually the best place to start looking.

Takes long to get hot air, it does not overheat, air is not hot enough


if what you are saying is when its cold out and you start your car for the first time it take a while to get the heater to start blowing hot air but once you get going it works fine

you might want to try changing your thrmostat to one that opens a lower temp some open at 195 and others as low as 140

what happens is your heater uses the hot water that is used to cool your motor the therostat allows the water to flow thu the motor once the water in the motor has reached the set temp so on a cold morning the water takes longer to heat up and will then inturn take longer to get hot water to your heater allowing you to get hot air

get it ? i think i might be confused now

if you need help changing your themostat let contact me
a new one is less than $20.00
