2002 dodge ram 1500 motor has a little knock but drives good and doesnt run hot. Bought it from a man he said he ran it hot one time and now it has oil and water mixing. What do u think will fix it


Probably another engine.
Since you don't know why it got hot in the first place, it would be impossible to know what is damaged now.
The knock is probably from lack of lubrication because of the contaminated oil. And that would mean all of the bearings are worn. And a leaking head gasket or cracked head could allow coolant into the oil.
If it has more than 90,000 miles on the engine its probably not worth rebuilding if it needs all of the bearings replaced plus the cause of the leaking oil/coolant repaired.

If the pump isn't leaking and you can see water flowing in the radiator with the cap off, the pump is probably OK. Can you figure out where the coolant leaked out?

2001 Ford Windstar transmission fluid leak


Sorry!,..More than likely the front seal of the transmission has actually cut a groove into the torque convertor neck.I have seen these hundreds of times, when the van is hot the seal wont hold the fluid pressure behind it and trans fluid will leak past...also the lines/hoses are on the side of this transmission..the vent is located on top of this trans near the main connector,.not in the front(Ax4n).,, seriously go to an accredited trans shop only for this repairATRA......again sorry for the bad new..Bob Stinson

2000 KIA SEPHIA leaking.


you should always put water in a overheated car with the motor running sounds to me like cold water in hot engine syndrome unfortunately this is fatal to the motor most likely cracked heads

Car leaking coolant


First of all ensure that your car is leaking coolant fluid, and what is dripping is not just water condensation from the air conditioner.
If you have a coolant liquid leak, it can be from one of the ducts leading to radiator , from water pump or radiator itself. Check liquid levels, and if you have a leak have the car inspected by a qualified mechanic.
A broken water pump, for example, can cause your motor to blow in few miles.
