Don't try to start the car anymore!  You have blown your head gasket.  Take the car to a mechanic and have them check the engine out to make sure you haven't done any further damage to the piston.  If not, have them replace the head gasket and you should be good.  Hopefully it's just the head gasket and you don't need to rebuild the motor.  Hope this helps.  Thanks for an honest rating and for using FixYa.

SOURCE: my 2004 will not crank it tries to turn over but

Check Battery Volts must Be 12.5 or More,
It Is Possible that your Alternator Has Failed and you Drove OFF the Battery and Killed the Battery, Thus Need for a FULL RE-Charge.

SOURCE: I was loosing coolant but did not have a leak.

you have: a.) bad head or intake manifold gaskets or: b.) cracked cylinder head or cracked engine block. If it has overheated or run hot long enough, you could have all of the above.

SOURCE: 2000 pontiac grand am will turn over but won't crank

Hello! Any major auto parts retailer can scan your computer and pull the details of the error code that's causing the check engine light to come on. My first guess would be that you have a crankshaft position sensor issue, but the details from the code reader will tell you for certain.

Thanks for using FixYa!

98 chrysler sebring sat w/out running for 4 years cranks but wont start any suggestions as to what is the problem or what to do to make it start


I would have probably given it a total tune-up, first, checked all the fluids. New antifreeze. Changed the oil and filter. Drained the gas tank, used fresh gas. Pulled the spark plugs and belt, put a drop or two of oil in each cylinder, then turned the crank by hand before trying the starter motor.
Then, if it cranks good but won't start, have a helper crank it while you visually check for spark at the spark plugs. If spark everywhere, use a gage and check proper fuel pressure. Also, check fuel injector pulse. Any applicable trouble codes?

If a water pump in a 2004 chrysler pacifica with 3.5l is leaking would it run out right below the crank pulley


This is common water pump failure on the pacifica, the bearings start to leak.
Since it is ran off the timing belt it is very common for the coolant to eat away at the timing belt, once that belt breaks your engine is destroyed.
This is not a repair that is OK to put off, replace the water pump timing belt and tensioner

I accidently put antifreeze instead of oil in engine


Drain it IMMEDIATELY!!! It could remove all of the protection your engine uses to keep it from wearing out. Be prepared to spend alot of money on oil to flush out the antifreeze! Also get a few oil filters! The first wash is CRITICAL....After you have let the engine drain OVERNIGHT, leaving the old filter off, Put back the drain plug and mount the new filter, and add the new oil. Run the engine until it is at operating temperature. Turn it off...drain it while HOT and pull the filter while hot (Use Gloves to keep from burning yourself). Let it drain overnight again. Repeat the process above running the car for 24 hours, then for 3 days, then for 1 week. After that last drain, you should be ready to see what damage was caused...hopefully not much if you didn't drive it too far...

My car recently shut off when i was driving in town. it did not have much oil in it and it had an oil leak i pushed it off the road and put oil in it but the car didn't start. i noticed the antifreeze tank...


Could be several things from radiator ,hoses,water pump, FREEZE PLUGS ,cracked head or block. You need to find out where the coolant is coming from to determine it.
If the car was hot and you poured fluid in it the block,head or head gasket could crack. If it was cold and you just had watr in it the block could crack or freeze plugs could have came out.

I have a 2003 Dodge stratus (2.4L), the car runs fine in the mornings, but later in the day, I'm smelling oil and the car idles rough and jerks, has cut off a couple of times, but after engine cools off,...


Your cooking the oil in the engine ( getting to hot/possible oil leak on top of engine). Check the front of the radiator for anything that will cause air not pass through the radiator.If you find any bugs/trash/or a build-up dust or dirt clean it out. Next check to see if the radiator and coolant recovery jug has any antifreeze in it. If not refill each to proper levels with a 50/50 mix antifreeze. Then if all is good run the car in the morning and as it is worming up put your hand on the upper radiator hose to feel if it is hot or cold. If the hose is hot and you can feel the antifreeze moving through the hose then the pump is working correctly. If not and the hose feels luke warm with no movement of fluid then the thermostat is stuck closed and will need to be replaced. Also you need to replace the engine coolant temperature sensor (ect) on engine. Hope this will help you.

How do i put water for the radiator?


Does your car have a cap or a sealed unit? You don't want a sealed unit. You want to be able to check your water.Push down and Twist the cap off when cold, not hot, fill it up with coolant, 50/50 mix, and fill up the expansion tank. It says coolant on it. The car will balance itself out. Check the water in your battery while you are at it. It dries out too. Then check the brake fluid, power steering fluid, and oil. That should keep you busy next Saturday. Hope this helps.
