My Audi A4 1996 Model is overheating while I am on a hold up/go slow or if I take a long drive, my mechanic told me to removed the thermostat I do but the overheating didn't stop, another said top cyl

First pressure test the radiator for leakage throughout the cooling system (or Blockage) then you should have it checked for flow percentage. If that all checks out do a complete flush making sure to use the correct anti freeze. (providing you have checked rad fan switch, cool temp sensor, and cap.) If there is no water showing in the oil then check for bubbles in rad while car is running. Just make sure by vin # that you use the correct antifreeze because adding or mixing the green and red can cause gelling in the coolant system.

I’m happy to assist further over the phone at

2007 kia spectra over heating

temporary fixes cause problems or they would be permanent fixes. The car got to over heat stage and the coolant sensor turned the engine light on to let you know that something was wrong. Replace the radiator before you do serious engine damage.

Transmission fluid leak

There are a couple of possibilities, the plastic could be cracked as you suggested, the nut itself could be cracked, but I would not be surprised if the problem is the treads on the tank and nut are not an exact match. They may look the same, and there are standard thread sizes, but there are also a lot of variations in tubing fittings.
If the treads match and the plastic is not cracked, they make a thread sealer for high pressure steam lines that should work.

What does it mean when I loosing transmission fluid from a hose connected to my radiator

At the base of the radiator there are two lines connected coming from the transmission on a automatic. one is the feed, the other is the return. the most common leak is where the rubber line is clamped to the nipple on the radiator. just replace both rubber lines and put new clamps on and 99% likely this will fix the problem. its cheap and easy to do.
once you know how to do this you are set since most cars/trucks are set up exactly the same plus this is how you identify which radiator should you buy a used one. you can use an auto rad in a stick vehicle by capping the nipples but not vice versa.
the rubber lines tend to get cut into and/or cracked on the ends after a while. if nothing else, once the lines are off, you can take a flashlight, clean and inspect around the nipple area for any cracks.
with the engine running and in park/neutral check your ****** fluid and be sure there is no anti-freeze in it and that its not black or burnt smelling. as was already said, check your anti-freeze, mainly check your overflow since the floating ****** fluid will get purged back into there first.

Over heating then shuts down

it could just be a partially stuck thermostat if your not losing any antifreeze. if you have white steam out the tailpipe then a headgasket or head problem is likely. dont keep driving this till you fix it because if its simple now its going to be a major fix later as you will damage the engine etc.

1987 ford ranger no spark

You may want to check your distributor cap for any signs of unusual wear such as a crack. Even a hair line crack (that is very hard to see) can cause you lose spark. You may want to go ahead and replace both the distributor cap and rotor (a cheap fix) and see whether or not that helps.
