On my 2001 porsche boxster is the daytime running lights supposed to stay on or blink

They are supposed to stay on. Why would they blink? Are you referring to the turn signals? They're the only ones that should blink.

Having cold start problems 2006 h.d. f350 ,truck is parked in heated garage all night,starts normal in the a.m.,sits outside all day at work,soon as temp falls below 30 F it starts then stalls immediately...

Follow your glowplug wires towards the Firewall. The glowplug wire goes into a Timer which is suppose to be internally regulated by outside Temperature and feedback from the glowplugs.

When you are in Cold weather, the Timer is suppose to keep the glowplugs on longer. When the engine is fully warm and you shut it off, you will notice it starts up like a gas engine. First you want to remove your glowplugs and check them by using Jumper cables and heating them up.

Be careful because they can melt or distort if on too long. I usually pull out 4 at a time because it is a comparison test and when you find the quickest, brightest glowplug you measure the others against it. When the glowplug stays dark or does not heat as quickly it is bad. Remember when it is in the engine the glowplug only has bumps of current coming from the Timer to warm up.

Once you are confident the glowplugs are okay, try starting the truck. Or for good measure, just change the Timer, but it will add to the cost.

As for the engine light, if you mean the "check engine" light, you can get that checked free at Autozone, Oreillys, or Advance. I believe Advance may be better equipped to test the PCM.

I hope my solutions are very helpful to you and thanks for using this service.

There is water leaking from the water pump housing and it looks like a prefabed (manufactured) hole. What can I do to close that hole? This is a 1993 Toyota celica gt

the hole is there to let you know that the water pump is defective, you need a new water pump, normal this hole is filled with wax, when the pump over heats due to the bearings wearing out the wax melts,

Back to problems with my 2000 Buick La Sabre. I noticed this last year and now it's happening again. Sometimes when the heat is on there is an odor that smells like melted candle wax, the smell can be so...

I don't really know what could be causing a wax smell specifically, but if crayons made their way into the duct-work then that could be your problem. Other wise you may want to inspect the heater-core, could be clogged (for debris or mold) and cabin air-filter (IF APPLICABLE).

I cannot break the bolts loose on the front brake calipers. I have sprayed a lot of rust cutter and let it sit with no good results. Cannot change the brake pads without loosening these bolts.

use a regular propaine torch to heat the bolts (be careful not to melt anything else inthe process) then melt gulf wax onto the bolt. you will see the wax sucked into the rust, and bolt housing. the gulf wax does an amazing job to free up stuck bolts because of the way it permieates the rust. then while the bolt is still warm losten it. you can get gulf way at any hoby store or candle making place.

Re: golf yellow glow light

the idea or concept of the glow plug is to heat the fuel long enough to start the motor.... it should stay on long enough for the glow plugs to heat up enough to start the motor then they go off because they have done their job. so the light going out is normal after a few seconds


Please take a moment to rate this solution thanks
Hopefully a fixya... perhaps rate the other the same

Coolant Warning Light

Some models have a bleeder valve located on or near the thermostat. Not all manuals will show this vital component. If yours has one( if your coolant recovery bottle is above highest point of radiator you do) you need to bleed the air out of your cooling system. Do this by opening the valve until coolant comes out. Do this a couple of times as your car is getting to operating temp. should solve your problem.
