Question about 1995 Nissan Quest

1 Answer

My van stalled as I was turning in the driveway, I looked at the tempture gauge and it was running hot. I let it cool off for about 10 minutes then crank it up, but it was starting to stall again, I checked my oil and it looked milky, checked the coolint and had to add some. The next day I checked the oil again and it looked ok, I started up the van, it was alittle hard to crank, I let it run and it started flooding out. I decided to take off the valve covers and on the underside, it looked like a milky, tan product all over them. I used a towel to wipe them out and water was all in it, I realized that this was water mixing with my oil, does it sound like a blown head gasket to you.

Yes, when the temperature rises the likeliehood of a blown head gasket also rises.

If the oil looks milky or foamy with light brown color, you know that the head gasket has blown.

Chevy venture radiator cap won't come off

Well that can be true but you can't be sure without running some tests.
Did you get the cap off ? Is the radiator full of coolant ?
Was the radiator fan running when it was showing hot on the gauge ?

My Chrysler is overheating! The tempture gage doesn't say it's, I want the know what all should I check or what are the possible problems

How do you know it is running hot ?
Is the cooling system full of liquid ? Are the radiator fans coming on ?
Are both radiator hoses hot ?
If the temp gauge does not move off of cold, it may be disconnected or the sensor may have failed.

Could be the gauge in the dash, the temp sensor on the engine, or the thermostat is not closing to warm up the engine.

Could be different problems.
The cluster issue could be a problem in the printed circuit board inside the cluster.
The cooling fan problem could be low coolant, a blown fuse, a faulty temp sensor, fan motor, or relay.

My 1993 dodge ram B250 wagon is showing signs of a bad fuel pump but mechanic says fuel pump is fine. Wants me to buy a new PCM (which we just did a month ago for a previous problem). The van was running...

one thing to look for is your gas gauge. if it doesnt read or your wagon constantly stops then i would go with the fuel pump. replace the pump and replace the fuel line any water in that line would be bad.

When the outside temperature has been above 90 degrees, and with the air running, my 1995 econoline 150 conversion van, 5.0 engine, has stalled out. on the first instance, i put the van in neutral and...

I chased a similar problem for several years. Stalled, got towed no problem found. The thing would heal and then fail at random on hot days. After checking everything electrical, fuel pump pressure etc, nothing could be found and I could not duplicate the problem. One day after being towed to a shop again, van started and would not fail but this time I had the mechanic put a clear by pass line along with a pressure gauge and I monitored the flow for about forty five minutes. Suddenly I started to see a stream of air bubbles and the pressure began to drop until the engine shut off. It was the FUEL PUMP all along and no one was able to determine that w/ all the test equipment. Went to Kragen Auto, now Oriely's and got a fuel pump. Had the shop drop the tank and install it. Have never had a problem again. Don't worry about what the mechanics tell you that it is not. Change the fuel pump
