What is the problem when the front panel liner is completely soaked with water and dripping to the floor?


I don't understand what you are refering to by front panel liner. If you mean the wall between the engine compartment and the inside of the car then I think you have a leak in your heater core. Check the later level in your radiator.. If you are having to add water then it woulod seem that is the problem.

'low coolant light' flashes all the time and then 'service engine soon'


These problems may or may not be related. The Check coolant light means that the coolant level in your radiator is low. If you have checked it and it is not low, then the sensor is most likely defective. The low coolant sensor will not turn the Check Engine light on - even if the coolant really is low. There are many things that can cause the Check Engine light to come on. You will have to scan your Engine Computer to find out why it has been turning the light on.

I did have a problem on one of these cars one time where the Check Engine light was coming on and there were several codes for the Throttle Position Sensor(TPS) and the Manifold Absolute Pressure (MAP) sensor and the car ran really bad. The Check Coolant light was also on. After checking it out I found that the coolant level sensor was shorting out the 5 volt reference circuit (VREF) from the computer and causing the whole problem. Replacing the coolant level sensor fixed the car.

I sank my 91 toyota 4runner and have a knocking in the engine.


If by "sank" you mean submerged in water while the engine was running you probably bent a conecting rod or broke a piston. Water does not compress and if the engine ingested water you have done some major internal damage. No quick fix for this, the engine has to be rebuilt.

Car was submerge in flood waters up to the floor water was inside car. now the car engine won't start.


I don't know for sure if this is it, but I had a guy that had a flooded Saturn that wouldn't start. Tried a new starter, no good. Took out the plugs and the cylinders were full of water, turned over the motor and water shot out the cylinders like a fountain!!!! Something may have shorted out and you may have a blown fuse or a main fuse.

Is there any problem that i should look for in buying one please


Hi, volvo's have pretty solid engines so unless you hear an load knocking noises coming from the engine or blue smoke coming out the exhaust you should be ok engine wise, but here is a list of things you should check
1, listen for knocking sounds from engine
2, look for blue color smoke coming out of exhaust, if you see blue smoke then walk away as it means engine needs rebuilding.
3, check the oil, check oil level and color if their is anything that looks like mayonaise then this means head gasket has gone and needs replacing this can be expensive, if the oil level is ok and looks ok then the engine should be fine.
4 have a good look around engine for oil or water leaks check on floor under engine for signs of oil or water dripping off engine,
5, check all wheel arches for signs of rust
6. go gor drive and test the brakes and check all the gears including revers as gear box work can be expensive.
7 check the car will turn left and right on full lock and listne for any knocking noise whilst turning round islands etc this could mean drive shaft or gearbox trouble
8 listen for knocking noises going over bumps if your hear any then this would mean ball joints need replacing, not that expensive to do but you could use this to lower the price f it does knock.
9 check all the lights and switches work inside the car.

that list should give you a good idea of what to look for if you have any concernes walk away their are plenty of other cars out their. have a look underneath at the floor to check for corrosion as it would be expensive to get the floor welded up and also ask about service history.

let me know if you need further assistance ok

My car santro xing .purchased one year back. any


Before attempting to start it, unplug and clean any electrical connectors that were under water. change the diff fluid in both diffs, transfer case lube, trans oil and engine oil. Seals on most are canted inward to prevent oil from escaping but aren't really good at keeping water out when submerged. You may not have any water in any of those items, but its far cheaper to do the oil changes than to replace any one of those.

Symbol lit up


there can be a yellow light in the cluster that looks like a small radiator or box with waves inside of it to indicate water. This light means that the coolant level sensor has detected a low coolant level. Typically the expansion tanks inside of these cars will crack from heat and age. A simple diagnosis is to check your coolant level and top it off. Do not forget to bleed it by unscrewing the bleeder screw found on the upper radiator hose while filling up the reservoir found on the right hand side of the radiator. once the coolant has been filled, tighten the bleeder screw back down but be careful not to over tighten. and finally screw on the expansion tank cap. run the vehicle to operating temperature and use a flashlight to inspect the engine bay for leaks. If there is a leak, it will need to be repaired. possible leaks are a cracked expansion tank, leaking radiator hoses, or a leaking water pump or thermostat.

Oil light comes on


Yellow oil can lit means you need to top up the oil. Red oil can means you have lost oil pressure.

Coolant light stays on


Hi,

You can try verifying that the coolant level is up to the 'Fill hot' line. If the coolant level in the reservoir tank is sufficient yet the warning light lits up, then it could probably be a defective sensor. Normally, the coolant reservoir is the white plastic tank located behind the passenger side headlight. There' would be a black cap that says 'Engine Coolant Only' in yellow print and there is a wire harness connected to it. Where the wire ends in the tank is the sensor. You can try cleaning the sensor tip (that gets submerged in coolant) see if that helps. Otherwise a replacement might be in order.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
