Does it turn over - not check battery voltage under load with meter.
check fuses.
check starter motor.
if all ok you may have seized your engine.
if so - it will need to be rebuilt.

You may have a stuck thermostat. It is located inside the upper hose of the radiator where it attaches to the top of the motor.. In an emergency, you can take out the thermostat and run the car without it until you can get a new one to replace it.. After the car cools down, it should be able to start again.

I have a 1994 honda accord ! The car started givin


You need to let your car cool down over night if possible. If you can't wait over night turn the car off, open the engine hood, and leave it open for a while so it quickly cools down. Check the radiator fluid level. To do this there should be a plastic tank near one side of the radiator which is located on the very front of the engine under the hood. The plastic tank is clear and should have yellow/green fluid in it. If the tank is low or empty let the car cool down like stated above but even longer. After about 1/2 to 1 hour with the hood open it is safe to open the cap located on top of the plastic tank. Add pre-mixed coolant fluid through the cap until the fluid reaches the "FULL" mark on the plastic tank, replace cap, start engine and let it idle or run for about 15 minutes with the hood open. Check the fluid in the plastic tank again and add fluid if needed. Repeat until fluid remains at full level. IF YOU DO NOT HAVE COOLANT FLUID AND CAN NOT BUY SOME YOU CAN USE JUST PLAIN TAP WATER BUT YOU BETTER HAVE YOUR RADIATOR FLUID CHECKED BEFORE WINTER. Good luck!!

I have a 96 cavalier and it shuts off while driving and won't start for 30 min. whats the problem


I'm not real sure, but the cavaliers do have a safety system that will shut down the engine if there is a problem so that the engine will not sustain major damage. For example if the oil level gets too low, the car will refuse to start until you add some oil. Maybe the temperature sending unit is bad, or malfunctioning. Have you had your codes read lately? Most part houses can hook up to your car and give you any codes that may be stored. I'd check all fluid levels. Make sure it's not over heating. I hope this sorry conglomeration of information is helpful at least a little. Good Luck.

Transmission slipping due to too much fluid?


Possible, but make sure you have correct fluid level. Start car and let idle for 15 minutes, fluid level is checked with engine running.

I replaced my water pump for my 2006 buick lucerne and now theres no heat


Hope you didn't break a nail.

There is a air pocket in the heater core, you just didn't burp it right.

Try this

  1. Open the hood of your car. Secure the hood with the safety handle. If you have a newer car, you should have a bleeder valve on the front of your radiator. Check in your owner's manual for the location of this valve. If you do start your car, open the valve with wrench and let your car heat up. The excess air will bleed out of your cooling system. Keep your car on long enough to give the (trapped air) time to bleed out of your system.
  2. Let your car cool down. Once the car is cool, take off the radiator cap. Did the level of the radiator fluid go down? If it did, it means you bled the air out of your cooling system. Replace the radiator fluid, turn on the car, and let it run. Replace radiator fluid as needed.
  3. Step 3 (above) is the way you will remove air from your cooling system if you do not have a bleeder valve on your radiator. You will leave the cap off the radiator. You will run your car until it heats up. As the air dissipates, the radiator fluid level will go down. You will fill up your radiator fluid to the correct level. Be careful because the heated radiator fluid will be hot. Always wear leather gloves and safety goggles when working on your radiator.
  4. Once the air dissipates and you fill the fluid, shut off the car. Let the car cool down. Once the car is cool, put the radiator cap back on the radiator. You may have to put more radiator fluid in the radiator. The level may fall as the car cools down. Now it is safe to drive your car. You have removed the trapped air from your cooling system.
Tips:
Always wear gloves and safety goggles when working on your radiator.
Radiator fluid gets very hot when heated.
Check radiator fluid periodically.

Check coolant level indicator on cadillac deville 2005 still on


After changing the thermostat you might have developed an air lock in the radiator. Does the radiator knock or push antifreeze out with the car running and the cap off. The water pump should also be checked and you can do that by looking in the radiator while running and with the cap off. You should see the fluid moving through the radiator if it is circulating Just be careful not to get burned if it pushes water out of the radiator.

How do I bleed the radiator in my C70 Volvo ? you can bleed a radiator in a C70 , rite ?..


  1. This method works best if the nose of the car is raised as high as possible. Park your car in your driveway. Let your car cool down. When your car is cooled down, you are ready to work on the cooling system.
  2. Open the hood of your car. Secure the hood with the safety handle. If you have a newer car, you should have a bleeder valve on the front of your radiator. Check in your owner's manual for the location of this valve. If you do start your car, open the valve with wrench and let your car heat up. The excess air will bleed out of your cooling system. Keep your car on long enough to give the (trapped air) time to bleed out of your system.
  3. Let your car cool down. Once the car is cool, take off the radiator cap. Did the level of the radiator fluid go down? If it did, it means you bled the air out of your cooling system. Replace the radiator fluid, turn on the car, and let it run. Replace radiator fluid as needed.
  4. Step 3 (above) is the way you will remove air from your cooling system if you do not have a bleeder valve on your radiator. You will leave the cap off the radiator. You will run your car until it heats up. As the air dissipates, the radiator fluid level will go down. You will fill up your radiator fluid to the correct level.

  5. Once the air dissipates and you fill the fluid, shut off the car. Let the car cool down. Once the car is cool, put the radiator cap back on the radiator.

Put new radiator in,and no heat comes out,Could my hearter core be froze up.


You might consider bleeding out the air you might have in your cooling system after you opened it,drain it to replace radiator.Let it cool down open rad cap start engine watch the burps of air come up when air locks are out coolant starts to swirl as it circulates might drop fluid level to have coolant on hand to top up after wards shut it of with rad cap off let it sit for as long as you possibly can any remaining air locks will burp out.Once coolant completely down put your rad cap back be sure fluid is full reservoir as well.Now see if you have heat.

Replaced my whining powersteering pump with brand new one, and it's just as noisy !!! could it be airlocked? if so how do you fix it?


With the vehicle off and front wheels off the ground do the following:
fill the reservior to mark on dipstick turn steering wheel lock to lock 20 times slowly each side (try to maintain fluid level) check fluid and fill if necessary start vehicle check fluid and fill if necessary turn steering wheel lock to lock 20 times slowly each side (maintain fluid level) shut vehicle off check fluid level if bubble exist in fluid (creamy color), wait five minutes and repeat from "start vehcle" (i.e. check fluid... turn wheel lock to lock 20x, etc...) repeat till bubbles are gone

Overheating


You have an air lock in the cooling system.
Do this: pull upper radiator hose off the radiator leaving it connected to the block, pour coolant into hose until filled ( you might have to do it to the radiator also). Once filled reconnected hose back to the radiator, then fill resevior to proper level. Start car turn heater on full. Let car run with cap off resevior until it starts pulling coolant in. Once warmed up shut car off let cool. Check fluid level again.
