How do I fix? Over heat/no heat/and NO fluid loss


If you've done all that then I'd say your blend doors aren't opening so it let's heat into car. Is the car still overheating?? If it is have you checked the ETC sensor?

Hello, I got this problem with my 2002 huyndai elantra, this car originally starter this problem, no heat when driving the car, the heat started to work on and off, the radiator looks ok, but 2 days ago,...


Place car on a steep incline or raise front end up higher than the heater core. Now, add coolant to the radiator as needed, with engine warmed up. It sounds like the radiator is lower than the heater core causing an air lock and if that is the case this will allow the air bubbles to escape.

Power steering fluid leaking?


Robert, Use a strong flashlight and check from top and bottom. If you need to jack vehicle to check underneath the engine, please secure it with jack stands (don't rely on the floor jack or your vehicle's tire change jack). If you don't see evidence and have not lost any fluid then there is nothing wrong. Any visible "wetness" is acceptable as long as it is not dripping or running when engine is running. Check all your fluids and make sure it is serviced per manufacture recommendations or your owners manual. Check it again after one month, if the fluid level is fine, then the car is fine. Also place a cardboard on the floor where you park overnight and see if you have any evidence. Sometimes during oil changes, depending of filter location, droplets are common as well as from the oil pan drain plug during removal. As long as it does not elak after installation, you are fine.

1996 Acura 3.2TL Overheating Problem...


From your description of symtoms it sounds like you have a bad water pump. If the coolant is not circulating properly you will have a heating problem. Sometimes even a new thermostat can stick and cause the engine to overheat. I have seen them fail in as little as a week after they were installed.
