hi themulks
dave here

if you have a rad cap open it and check your coolant level. if it is low fill the rad and leave cap off while you then put the recovery resorvoir at the proper cold level. Move your way along to the thermostat and look for a screw and nut at the top of the housing. If there is one then this is the highest point of the coolant in your vehicle and you will bleed it by opening this hole and running your engine until only coolant flows from the exposed hole. Do not remove the screw just turn it until the hole in the side is revealed. I basically almost remove the screw (till it kind of wobbles) and then turn it back in til it stable (like 1 turn). Be sure that the coolant is flowing without bubbles(air) and not just kinda trickling with short pauses.
If the housing for the thernostat is lower than the rad cap then you bleed it through the rad. Wait for the thernostat to open and the level to go down and then refill it and watch to see no more bubbles (air) escaping. Once the vehicle gets hot you may have to wait for the engine to cool(ie) turn it off for a while and redo it. Also if you are using the thermostat bleed hole be sure to put the rad cap back on before you start the bleed process and keep your eye on the coolant resorvoir adding coolant as needed so you dont **** more air into the engine.

Why are my glow plug light is flashing all the time and on first start in morn it coughs and splutters and smokes bad from exhaust wat is wrong had coolant temp sensor changed today please help im a female...


I think you are referring to a different indicator light. A glow plug is a Diesel engine part and I do not think an American version has a Diesel. There is a "check engine light" which is an indicator of trouble and will display as you described.

Go to a Advance , Autozone, or Oreilys autoparts store. You can ask for a free scan to diagnose your problems. The coolant sensor can relate to a cold start problem. Some models use 2 temperature sensors. One operates the dash gauge and the other operates engine controls.

You will need to know if you replaced the sensor to the dash gauge instead of the engine control sensor. Both use heat to set engine controls.

Second owner of a 92 Oldsmobile Ceirra that has never had any problems until recently it started stalling while driving down the road.Changed out fuel filter and checked mic. other things to no...


I would suggest that you have a bad batch of gas in your tank. (Water in gas) this would be why engine runs poor and stalling. Drain and/or put good gas in.

I think my car is overheating. I just did a whole bunch of engine work and sometimes when I pull up to a red light it stalls out. It isn't the timing because we've gotten it looked at. Our mechnic says...


Without hearing the noise, there is no way anyone could tell you where the noise is coming from. I would recommend taking your mechanic for a ride to show him what is happening. If it is overheating, your temperature gauge will be high (if you have a gauge) or your water temperature light light should be coming on. Make sure the light works. It should come on for at least a couple seconds when you start your engine. Anyway, if the mechanic is in the car when it stalls, he will no longer tell you that nothing is wrong.

Have a 1998 Chrysler Concorde with 134,000 miles. About 2 months ago it started stalling intermitently. Would stall and I could restart immediately. Now it stalls once every trip at a certain engine temp....


your car problem is overheating, some car model like yours is designed to shut-down engine when engine temp. rise so as to avoid frying the engine. your engine overheating problem is attributed by one of these factors:
1. check or refill radiator water if less
2.check radiator cooling fan operation-if damaged pls. change or check the electrical system.
3. damage/ worn water pump-if damage pls. change the water pump.
4. check for any coolant leak somewhere the coolant line-pls. rectify the leak.
5.worn coolant reservoir cap- change if damaged.
6. clogged radiator-if clogged pls. change it.
7. damaged thermostat valve.

My 206 1.9 diesel wont start


a diesel engine can only cutout when overheating, loss of diesel fuel and air leak in the fuel system. if you know how to bleed or ask somebody to bleed right after it stall, then start the car, if it starts immediately then it is sucking air.

Overheating


Is this the diesel model ? or petrol power? Never lug your diesel engine it will overheat even a new engine. Check your coolant level when engine is cooled down it may need burped. Why the head gasket change? did the head get checked for cracks and surface flatness, could be still leaking combustion pressure gases into the coolant have a test for this
