Car not quite running hot yet.

But when i crank up the car it wants to continue trying to crank on it's own. It sounds like water moving around when it idles down. Then it smells like antifreeze all the time.

I have a 1995 geo metro that quit on me. Something popped then the engine quit. It won't crank now. I have water coming out of the overflow.put water back in it but when I tried to crank it without th


Your assumption would be probable! Sounds like the cooling system is being pressurised from the engine which is normally caused by blown head gasket! Is the water mixing with the oil?

I have a clark fork lift, It's a 4 cylinder around early 1980's it will keep running if you keep cranking it, as soon as you let off the key it quits.


It sounds like the ignition switch is bad or the wire to the run terminal on the switch is broke.

The ignition switch is hot on both the Start and Run terminals. Sounds like the Run side is dead.

Car runs hot. Its 2005 grand prix


Start by flushing your coolant system, then refill with a quality coolant.
Run up to temperature and check again for level (when cool again)

Check that the radiator is getting really hot quite suddenly when running from cold, as this is the best way of checking thermostat operation.
When over a set temperature (check your manual) the fan should come on.
If it never does - troubleshoot the fan (temperature switch or sensor first, then fan on direct feed to see if it powers up ok)

My 96 vette ran hot. the temp would rise while still but would go dwn once moving. it ran hot. now will not crank. the che guage light stays on.


I have a feeling its your water pump not pumping coolant. Water pump is run by the crankshaft. So in essence, the water pump pumps coolant faster while the engine or crankshaft is running which is why the temp would go up while still. It may not be cranking now maybe because the water pump pulley may be bad not allowing the belt to move. So have your cooling system checked.

My2005 f250 6.0 l diesel will crank but not start and run


Possibly a crank sensor on or around the harmonic balancer, acts as a magnet like on an old buick. When you get the truck to fire up run it until she gets hot shut it and try to restart if no start continues try spraying starter fluid on the crank sensor itself. What happens is the sensor overheats and wont register that your cranking the engine. Spraying the starting fluid on the sensor will cool it dramaticlly enough for you to restart.
