Just had the same problem! I have never had any problems out of my van and just had all fluids checked a month ago before going on vacation. One day it just started overheating and I had to urn the heater to pull the heat off of the motor to keep it cool enough to get it home. I put over a gallon of coolant in it and filled up the reserve tank. The next morning I took my kids to school about 4 miles away and my van started to miss really bad and the check engine light would come on every time I pressed down on the accelerator. I took it home and opened the hood and the reserve coolant tank was empty in just 8 miles of travel so I called the dealer and had them pick it up on a rollback since it is still under warranty. The dealer said it was a leak in the rear heater pipes that circulate antifreeze/coolant to the rear of the vehicle to supply heat for the rear heater and the miss was from the heat of the engine burning the spark plugs. So far it is a dealer item only and parts and labor are about $352. The vehicle will not leave any puddles when running while in park, only leak while moving, so they tell me. The dealer bypassed it somehow until my parts come in and my van drives fine. The pipes (maybe hoses,unsure) are actually a series of 3 that must be replaced. I may try to change them myself if they are just hoses.

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.

Loud engine noise and over heating.


the cooling system is a few different parts, you have the radiator, the water pump, and the fan. Are you leaking any fluid, you can do a pressure test to sell if it is leaking, are the fans kicking on when the car warms up.. If the pressure test doesn't show no leaks and pressure doesn't drop then start with looking at water pump and thermostat. Be careful because if it get to hot you can blow a head gasket.

White smoke coming from the muffler, loud noise...


One potential cause is too much gas. It may be running "rich". Your car may also be burning a little oil. White smoke is water or antifreeze. If you are loosing coolant from the radiator, it's probably a blown head gasket. If not, it is just condensation in the exhaust pipe that is evaporating as the pipes heat up. If the car is running too rich, the unburned gas will cause black smoke and burning oil smoke will be blue.

Hope helps (remember rated this).

Loud noise


Hi, Joe here to help, You need to top off the power steering fluid and check for a leak. Usually The leak is at the radiator. There is a small hose on the left side inside of the radiator. Has a hose clamp that you can just tighten.
