My car overheats even after you drive only 5 kilos. What could be the problem


two liquids regulate temperature i the car - oil and coolant. you need to check both, as you did not bother to think and provide us with manufacturer,model, fuel type and year, only general info can be provided.

oil - check level and change/top up as required, if change required - change oil filter as well while you are at it. change for type of oil required for your vehicle, oil and filters should be changed every 5000km (3500miles) to 10000km (7000miles), this depend on the condition, driving and age of the engine.

coolant - check level, top up f required.

if oil level is correct, and no loss in coolant either, you need to check coolant flow, start investigation if pump belt is not too lose and tension it if required, cannot do that if pump is driven directly from the shaft. check for thermostat problem and change if required, lastly - check radiator flow and reverse flush if required.

if you are flushing radiator - best is to flush block and heating system as well at same time, drain liquid and re-fill with new coolant.

hope this will help you at least a bit - do not forget to vote... :-)

It hasnt been a month since the oil was changed in my 2011 Toyota Camry and the maintance required was reset. Now the maintaince required has now came back on. What would the the problem since I know


Take it back to the oil change place. Or check the oil. If a seal is leaking or oil filter was not tightened or put on correctly oil may have leaked out and you will blow your engine!

Is is there any oil leaking in garage or driveway or where you park?

How to change oil in supercharger on 94 buick park ave ultra


It is not necessary to change the oil in the supercharger. The only maintenance required is to CHECK the oil level every 30.000 miles. GM says that it is normal for some of the oil to get lost during normal use by seepage therough the front seal area. It requires 5W-30 synthetic oil.

I guess if you really want to CHANGE the oil, it would require removal of the supercharger and remove the oil fill plug and turn the supercharger upside-down to make the oil drain out.

Low oil presure light and bell keep ringing


Check your car engine oil level as insufficient oil can cause this condition: top up as required and check for any excessive oil leaks.
If the engine oil level is 'normal', ensure that your oil filter is functional and not clogged (it will get clogged if you did not change it on a regular basis when changing oil): change as required.
If the above are OK, then you have a major problem because of faulty oil pump or worned oil (rubber) seals !
Hope it helps!

I have changed the lube oil and filter in my mountainer, but the display on the dashboard still shows 'oil change required'. How do I the 'oil change required' message?


The instructions on how to reset the' oil change required' message is in the owners manual (I believe it's page 81). Listed below is a site to get a free download of the manual for your 05 Mountaineer. Let me know if you have any trouble accessing this info.

For the last several days that I have started my car, I have gotten the warning chim for Oil Change Required, Contact Dealer. I have put approximately 1,500 miles since my last oil change. I have 5,600...


If the oil change warning was not reset at the previous oil change it's letting you know about the 5,000 required change, and it will continue to chime until reset. See your manual or dealer for reset instructions.

Oil Change Reset
A press of the OIL CHANGE RESET switch will allow you to
reset the oil life feature to 100% (or your Personalized Oil Reset
Percentage). After you have the oil changed, you must execute
the following procedure. Press the OIL CHANGE RESET switch
and hold for five seconds as the M/C counts down for five
seconds. After a successful reset the Message Center will display
“OIL LIFE RESET TO 100%.” If you have established a
Personalized Oil Reset Percentage, the display will show that
percentage instead of 100%. To ensure accurate oil life
indicators, perform this reset procedure only after an oil change.
Your Personalized Oil Reset Percentage allows you to establish a
smaller oil change interval than the manufacturer’s
recommended interval. To establish your Personalized Oil Reset
Percentage perform the following procedure:
1. Press and hold the OIL CHANGE RESET switch and press
the RESET switch while the display is still counting down
the 5 seconds to reset. The display will change to “START
OIL LIFE AT XXX%.”
2. Press the OIL CHANGE RESET switch until the displayed
percentage is the Personalized Oil Reset Percentage that you
desire. Your choices are 100%, 90%, 80%, 70%, 60%, 50%,
40% and 30%.
