Check engine light flashes only til I reach 30 mph, slow while acceleration, engine temp fluctuated from normal to low on temp gauge, engine rpms seem to drop lower than normal? What is wrong here?


the lowering on the temp gauge indicates a lack of coolant around the bulb of the temp sender unit or a lack of flow around the cooling system
could be from low coolant level or blockage in the coolant system from forming ice ( 16 degrees is -8 degrees Celsius which is below freezing point of water)
I suggest that you check the antifreeze ratio in the cooling system and it should be no less than 50/50 to water
any thing less than 50 % antifreeze in the water will allow the coolant to freeze up which may be your problem
coolant condition should be checked every season as it does deteriorate over time and the % ratio will drop
topping up with normal water is another method of lowering the % point
check with a radiator shop or dealer service center to get the correct % of antifreeze for below freezing conditions and keep it at that point

How can you tell if you cracked your engine block when it overheatedwhen you crack an engine when you overheat it


most of the time it will not start, if cracked..... but if it starts, and runs roughly..... have a mechanic look at it.... most of the time when an engine overheats, If you let it cool down by itself.... you are probably OK... NEVER PHYSICALLY POUR COLD WATER ON AN OVER HEATED ENGINE.!!!!!

Need to fill coolant reservoir every day with antifreeze, check engine light on & flashing


The flashing light means there is a problem with the engine serious enough to damage the catalytic converter. You should get the computer scanned for trouble codes.
If there are no external coolant leaks, the engine is probably burning the coolant thru the cylinders and out the tail pipe. Which could also be causing the flashing light.

CHECK ENGINE LIGHT ANTIFREEZE LEAK SMALL BUT CAN'T FIND IT


the check engine light doesnt know if there is an anti freeze leak or not, so get the trouble code. as for the leak, you will need to carefully look the engine over and see where its from. If its in the middle of the engine, in the front, the water pump is a possibility. check each side of the radiator, as the tanks are plastic and prone to crack.

Antifreeze light says system is low and car runs hot but antifreeze level is where it should be


Sounds like it could be a thermostat not opening. If the thermostat doesn't open then it will get hot because its not allowing the cooled antifreeze from the radiator into the engine. Your car has two circulations with the antifreeze. While your car is running it is heating up the antifreeze in the engine and when it reaches a certain temperature the thermostat opens and takes the hot antifreeze from the engine and puts it into the radiator to be cooled. At the same time the cool antifreeze from the radiator is placed into the engine to keep it cool. If your thermostat doesn't open your engine will get hot and overheat.

I need to know what kind of antifreeze i can use


You should be using Pentosin G12 (pink). If you are not currently, then flush the system completely before changing to G12 (I mean completely - run several loads of water through the engine, radiator, etc). If you don't, and you mix the G12 with another, over time it turns to a gel throughout the engine, and then you're in serious trouble.

Antifreeze leaked out bad from the back and bottom of car.


If you have Antifreeze leaking from the back of your vehicle, and your referring to it leaking out of your tail pipe, then i feel for you highly, that could possibly mean warped heads, cracked heads, cracked block, your engine runs and does the natural breath in, Ignite, Breathe out of the Intake and if you have antifreeze in the Intake, then best start looking for a new engine. It would be too much trouble to go thru the current engine you have. If by some chance its not coming out of your tail-pipe, then there is something wrong with your car, And disregard what i have entered.
