Hi :) A brand new thormastat can be bad right out of the box so check it out by putting in a pot of water on a stove and bring the water to 200 degrees and see for your self if it open properly.

Unexplained loss of coolant

whenever you have an unexplained loss of coolant...and you positively know your not leaking from the hoses....your car is warning you of impending doom!
My old 89 Beretta had 280k miles on it when i noticed the low coolant light come on, so i topped it off and problem went away, i had no coolant line leaks and just attributed this to old age..i only had to top it off every two weeks, but after a year or so it started getting worse and it was like every week now, after 295k it started running rough and then it went away after driving it about two miles and then it started overheating badly, so i looked inside the radiator and half the coolant was gone, so i felt the upper radiator hose and it was cold, never got hot! it was a stuck thermostat! it was corroded shut! and then i let the car cool completely (took off the radiator cap) and watched it warm up and my worse nightmare was confirmed, bubbles coming out the top and overflowing...blown head gasket! my advice is never ever let your car overheat if you can help it, (everytime you do it stresses the gaskets).. and if it does, turn on the heater full blasts, and pull off to the side off the road and check to make sure your fan is working! ...i fixed the problem somewhat though, with "blue devil" gasket sealer, 500 miles after changing five plugs,and runs great, i just cant get the #2 plug out, because that is where the cracked head or gasket problem is. So whenever your car overheats badly or starts to overheat a lot, change out your plugs, and put some antiseize compound on them or you probably wont be able to get them out later when you need too! The old #2 plug only has 10k on it, so i"ll just leave it in, dont want to risk snapping it off!
Blue devil is a bandaid fix!...the correct way to fix your "low mileage" vehicle is to forkout the grand it will take to changeout the gaskets.

What caused a 2011 Yamaha electric cart to stall and restart 2 hrs later. Over a 5 mile, I notice loss of power while going up hill and down hill

This power plant can be tested with a scanner, the dealer would need to do it, but guessing is a more costly route, have it tested.

Wife parked car. went to start 4 hours later spun over like nuts will not start was low on fuel but not out.i thought maybe timing chains or crank sensor.called dealer took car said they did a compression...

Hello Info.

I agree that it does sound crazy.
Perhaps for 12 grand a second opinion may be in order here.
A properly running car does not all of a sudden require an overhaul unless there was catastrophic failure.
There had to be a reason behind it all. They should have a proper answer for you as to the cause.
Questions such as this should be answered.
"Did the oil pump fail?"
"Was there coolant loss or signs of overheating?"
"Are there particles in the engine oil?"

Is this dealer reputable?.....I wonder, seems just a little suspicious to me.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Overheating, no coolant loss

I have a 1996 Pontiac Firebird with the 3.8 L V6, and have had problems until I replaced the DexCool (it's never ran so good!) However relating to your problem, there was a class action lawsuit regaurding the 1996 GMC/BUICK/PONTIAC 3.1 L engine, due to DexCool destroying the engine/heads/etc. Follow the link - I do not know all of the details, but it may be worth checking out. 1996 was the first year that DexCool was used at GM.
Hope it helps.
