My 2000 s type 3 l temp has shot up resulting in reduced enjine power and is leaking water

Based on the info it sounds like a possible blown head gasket, but lets be optimistic and seek some less expensive possibilities - perhaps it is a simple hose leak and the low coolant level is causing the problem... Source the leak.

There could be many causes for a small leak, including foreign debris, small crack or loose hose. Using just water with no antifreeze can damage your radiator in sub 32 temps so always mix with coolant/antifreeze. One temp solution is buying stop leak from a auto part store, another remedy I've heard work is putting black pepper (finely ground) in your system to stop small leaks and it actually works. Good luck.

2000 ford mercury sable ls i own this car and coolant leaks from under or off the side of the antifreeze reservoir i can't see this leak but only does it while running leaks a lot of antifreeze ways...

if is a slow leak and you don't hear a load hissing is ok! replace any hose that you think needs replacement, on top of that check your radiator hoses for swelling ,if the car is leaking water each time you drive the car your risking the engine to blow a head gasket so I would fix the problem right away....

2000 chevy suburban has a cooling system leak what kind of sstop leak do you recommend

I try not to use radiator stop leak to fix any leak, the stop leak will tend plug up the cooling journals and jackets through out the engine, radiator and heater core. If you are going to use any stop leak just to help you get to a repair shop, use just plain black kitchen pepper. The black pepper will plug up the hole where the leak is coming from and when it's time to repair the cooling system, the pepper will clean right out with just a simple coolant flush. Locate the leak and have it repaired, if it's the water pump leaking through the weep hole. Your going to have to have the water pump replaced, and if it's the heater core that is leaking. That's going to have to be repaired, and at worst, if the intake manifold gasket is leaking antifreeze in to the engine. That's bad and need to be repaired as soon as you can, the Antifreeze is corrosive to the engine's bearing and it's know to have the engine's bearing to go bad in 3000 miles of antifreeze mixed in with the engine oil. Good luck and hope it's just a small leak through a hose clamp or the radiator.

My 2000 Jaguar S Type has the check engine light on, it flashes when I drive on the highway, and when I shut the car off it takes a long time to cool down. Also I put antifreeze in the car yesterday and...

Missfire is usually cause by a bad spark plug or plug wire.
Sometimes can be cause by bad or leak injector.

For coolant, you usually have to fill the system twice when filling. It fills once then while you burp the radiator hose and car is still running, it will slowly drain all fluid from radiator to engine block, when this happens, you then refill the radiator once again and it will be at the proper level.

Check for leaks. Check exhaust too see if you have very white smoke and check oil to see if there is antifreeze in it because this can mean a gasket leak, and that may also be why your cylinder is missing

Automatic gearbox drops out of drive

Drops out of gear. Well if you pull back on the shifter and it engages again then you will probably need either the shifter cable adjusting or replacing. (common for them to stretch and it will kick out of drive to neutral)
If you actually loose gears and still have no drive when shifting the j-gate to 3rd then there is an internal problem with the transmission.
Good luck

Lost transmission

Can you check to see the transmission oil. See the quality of the oil, if there is antifreeze/water in it. It is possible that the antifreeze has entered the transmission and caused the transmission failure.
This is likely to be a cause of the radiator. The transmission oil cooler lines pass through the radiator and sometimes fail, causing antifreeze to pass into the transmission oil cooler pipes and then into the transmission, causing faults.
If this is the case, then you will have to replace the radiator. Repair or replace the transmission.
Hope this helps
