You might have a bad head gasket.Check oil dipstick to see if your oil is milky and check your exhaust.Is it blowing white smoke more than normal.With this mileage it is probably your gasket.

Petrol per km


Note the odometer reading. Fill the tank completely. Drive for 500-2000 km, refilling the tank as necessary, and recording exactly how much fuel is required each time to refill. At the end of the test, refill the tank one last time - recording how much fuel it required - and note the odometer reading again.

Add up all the fuel used in the entire test, NOT including the first fillup but INCLUDING the last one. The result is the fuel consumed during this test.

Subtract your starting odometer reading from your ending odometer reading. The result is the exact number of km traveled during this test.

Divide the number of km by the number of liters (km/l) to get your average fuel efficiency.

Ford Fiesta Zetec engine, year 2000. overheats after getting up to temperature, stays on normal for 1-2 kilometers, then gauge shoots over to the red. I stop, can hear water bubbling, wait till it cools...


1. Check the radiator cap.
2. Check the reserve tank, whether water level is maintained or getting filled. If it's getting filled, there should be a leak in the radiator or gasket

TO RESET, MOST VEHICLES TURN ON THE IGNITION SWITCH, [DO NOT START THE ENGINE ] PRESS THE GAS PEDAL TO THE FLOOR 3 TIMES, THE LIGHT SHOULD GO OUT. IF THAT DOESN'T WORK, YOU CAN DISCONNECT THE NEG. BATTERY CABLE FOR A MINUTE THEN RECONNECT, START THE ENGINE, THE LIGHT SHOULD BE OUT

Why is my buick century coolant light always on


You may want to check your manual. There is usually a light to tell you the coolant level in your reserve or overflow tank is low, and there is another light to tell you the system is overheating due to not enough coolant in the entire system. Nonetheless if either light remains on and you have refilled the overflow/reserve tank it is time to look for a leak. Leaks can be at hoses, in gaskets, and other locations. A puddle on the floor where the car is usually parked can help you locate a cracked hose or loose clamp, an antifreeze smell in your exhaust can help you locate a much worse problem.Often you may detect an antifreeze smell only after the car is warmed up which can be a leak which is running onto an exhaust pipe.

Smell gas when driving. when I put it in garage after driving the smell stays for awhile. No leaks on floor of garage.


your car may not be burning off all the fuel or you are leaking. just because you dont see it on the floor doesnt mean that your not leaking. because its hot under there your evaporating faster than you drip. check your lines starting at tank. check under hood where it connects to injection system.
run the engine and smell exhaust for fuel. put your hand at the tip while engine is cold running. if you get fuel go get a tune up. if smell it while driving you have a leak. i would need more info on the car. like has it been running a little less normal?

99 Chev suburban 5.7 liter, antifreeze keeps leaking have to fill reserve and radiator evryother day, (new radiator) no white smoke, oil looks ok, cant see leak anywhere on the ground or frame??? Wheres it...


check the condition of the reserve tank and the hose from the reserve tank to the radiator for leaks if no leaks there have the Radiator cap presure tested . also this could be a air lock in the engine if the radiator is new with the engine running and the heater on hot observe the fluid level in the radiator with the cap off if it drops as it warms add more coolant this will purge the air .

Over heating of engine


ok if you have to keep refilling the radiator you may hav a leak check under your car for any coolant on the driveway in the morning, also when you turn on the a/c it draws power from the engine, so what im thinking is that gradually over the day you are leaking coolant once you turn the aircon on its making the engine work harder with less cooling causing it to overheat this is all assuming you are leaking coolant

2001 porsche boxter engine running hot


My 2000 Boxster developed a pin hole leak in the coolant reserve tank in the rear trunk. The trunk floor is actually raised, which allowed the coolant to go unnoticed, since the carpet never got wet. I would pull back the carpet on the side and see if there is coolant in the trunk area. If so, the plastic reserve tank will run you about $300 for the part. It is a bit of a pain to replace, but something the average home mechanic can do. Only real hassle was the hose clamps in the engine bay were installed before the engine, hence the engine was in the way of the screw head.

How much gas is left in the tank when the low fuel indicator light comes on in a 2007 Kia Sedona


Generally, vehicles have about 100 km of reserve left. Of course, this depends on how you drive it!

With that said, I have driven over 100 km in my 2004 Sedona, with the light on (and my knees knocking). Was in a place where fuel wasn't readily available and I went for it. I was happy to have the 5-5-5 warranty, as they would have come out with some fuel, ut it was a trying experience!

Hope this helps!!!
