Question about 2004 Maserati Spyder

1 Answer

Today, I noticed a small puddle of liquid under the car. I'm no mechanic and don't claim to know anything about engines. I was wondering if anyone can give me a hint as to what may be the problem... Please check out this video and see for yourself. There are 2 bolts/plugs behind the pulley the leak seems to be coming from the bottom one. I assume that's oil? Thanks

For preventing the oil leak use "The Right Stuff" or Ultra Grey by loctite/permatex. That will the car a lot.

1998 honda civic. car wouldn't start. thinking need gas. get gas. prime throttle body (maybe a little too much accidently) however, waited a day.(battery was dying from all the attempted starting. put an...

The only matter there should be in the throttle body is air. The throttle body in no way has anything other than "nothing" in it. The liquid you see could be the gasoline you threw into the throttle body.

Getting back to your problem. Do NOT have someone looking down the throttle body while you are trying to start the engine. That person may receive a haircut he will never forget! Get the battery charged. Try to start the engine because even though you think you put too much gas in the throttle body, it may start.

The tricky part. If the engine starts and runs for a few seconds, then you are having a problem with fuel delivery and that is the fuel pump most of the time but not always.. If it does not start at all, try one more time to pour gasoline into the throttle body, hold your foot about 1/2 way down on the pedal and then try again to start it. If it still doesn't start, it's time to check for spark.

I have 2004 RR HSE with 90k miles I was driving into the city when all of the sudden the check coolant light came on smoke starting creeping from the engine when I pulled over I noticed a trail of liquid ...

Most likely a hose failed between the radiator and the engine. Stopping and having the repairs before seriously overheating the engine is very important.

If a hose failure is confirmed have both hoses replaced.

Hope this helps?

Could the liquid be coolant? If so, you likely have a broken heater core. Or... it could be condensate from the a/c evaporator is not exiting via the hose that is designed to take it out of the car (ever notice how a puddle forms under a car that has the a/c on?). If your car doesn't have the puddle, it's because a bug made a nest in that tube (or some other blockage) and the water is overflowing and coming into the cabin.

I have a 97 LHS and the heads gaskets, possibly the heads, i was wondering if i should use the product call

Liquid Steel, Steel Seal, Duralast-all make a product with sodium silicate that is supposed to seal head gasket leaks. Some swear by it, most mechanics say it is a temporary fix or doesn't even work. It is about $90 per application, but check, I think the cost is refunded if it doesn't work. Some people have even bought sodium silicate (liquid glass) at a pharmacy for a few bucks and claim it works. IDK, it might be worth a try, if you just don't want to replace the gaskets. Google it, it's everywhere, even some testimonials on Youtube. Let us know if it works for you.
Good luck.

Sonetimes it gots heat and sometimes dont

Make sure your coolant levels are topped off. Now if you only get heat when the car is moving then you have a bigger problem like your water pump has gone bad. To check this, monitor the coolant level and check periodlically under your car for puddles of coolant when the car is parked for periods of time. If you return and have small puddles under the engine then it is almost 100% that your water pump has gone bad and needs to be replaced. If you dont notice those symptoms then have your t-stat checked out.

This is directed to the secound part of your question.I don't know much about transmissions but i'am sure someone on this site does. Might want to look on the back side of intake to see if there is any signs of the intake gasget leaking. The only other place it could come from is a freeze plug or head gasget but i have never known them to leak from there but its posible. If you got a puddle right under the hole on the inspection cover for flywheel witch is red in color it would be the front pump seal in trans.
