Your best bet is to get the code your engine light is giving. Most local auto parts stores will hook up and tell you the code for free. That will narrow down what the possible issue is. If you're leaking antifreeze it could be the intake manifold or head gasket. I would not think those would give an error code . I also had a friend that had to replace the oil pressure switch. That would give a code since it's electronic. But find the code it's giving and that will narrow down your search.

Wat will happen if my coolant light came on and all i had was regular anti freeze,the 50/50 and i put some in my 2002 745li bmw


If you are only adding a couple of litres, the freezing point of the coolant will be altered very slightly. The important thing to check is that the antifreeze you are adding is suitable for alloy engines. If you add water the freezing point of the coolant will be raised, again very slightly if you only add a couple of litres

Car keeps running hot. Have added coolant several times. VIN# 2G1WF2E519264894


You have to verify if you have residue from coolant near the EGR below the composite air intake. If you are adding coolant and the car engine still have power then your coolant is vaporizing out and not in into the engine block. Otherwise if the coolant leaks into the engine block the car will act jerky since water is not compressible. Check the oil to see if it looks like coffee color (happens when water and oil mix).
No matter what be prepare to replace the lower/upper plenum gaskets, air intake and the tube that connects from the air intake to the EGR. New air intake comes without the tube. Replace to the lower plenum bolts. All parts available from www.rockauto.com

97 Buick Lesabre, had emmisions test done (which it passed) as soon as leaving emmisions test check engine light came on. Any ideas what may have caused this?


Stop by any good parts store (Autozone, Advance, etc) and have them do a FREE OBII scan. It will read all your fault codes and more than likely light came on because of emission test. But have them read the faults and reset your light.

Added coolant and tank is full. Ran it a couple times and added more coolant. 1 1/2 gallons altogether. Coolant light goes out then comes back on in a few seconds. Do these systems need bled. Has a bleed...


Good Evening. Bleeding the air out of the cooling system is a very important step. What you are looking for is just a steady stream of antifreeze you will see the difference from the flow with air an just fluid. Once you do that top off your reservoir and you should be just fine. Hope this helps, and if you have any more questions please feel free to ask.

My check engine light has been on \Replace cam sensor ?


The cam sensor and VCT sprocket is a fairly common problem on those cars and $1400 is a bit on the high side, but not terribly so. A new car might be in your future. If it runs ok, I would not worry about it though. The VCT adjusts timing for fuel efficiency and emmisions and won't hurt the car to drive. Though your fuel mileage and performance may suffer a bit.

2000 toyota camry check engine light is on code P0128


if you are refuring to the yellow check engine light. thats an emmision control light, it's not related to
oil or water capacity. it has only to do with emmision control devices. if the light is on steady. bring it to your mechanic and have him or her pull codes from your on board computer as soon as possible. if the light is flashing bring it to them now. stop driving the car or damage will be done to your cars converter.
good luck chris
