Hi.
sounds like you may have a faulty thermostat.

where the top hose from the radiator connects to the engine, there is a cast alloy cover held on with three bolts.
the thermostat is under this. just swap for a new one
i would not mess about testing it. they are fairly cheap and once replaced, you do not have to worry about it again.

as the car has already leaked some coolant, top up the cooling system with neat antifreeze,

run the car for a little while, with the heating on the highest temperature, keeping a close eye on the water level.

Can youput to much freon in and what will it do


4 cans will be too much
it makes the compressor pump liquid instead of gas and that damages the compressor
it the compressor is still capable of pumping gas then it will go to high head pressures and that will switch the compressor off
you have wasted your money, run the risk of expensive compressor damage , didn't fix the leak that required the gas
The specialist ac shops are not there to take your money but to give you a system that runs without problems so use them to fix the faults and put the right amount of gas in using gauges not cans

Why does my car horn go off when i turn the ignition but goes off after car starts to warm


because water is seeping into the ignition system, security system or horn/Colum & is grounding as soon as you turn on your ignition . After warming ,things melt or dry up & your good to go. Check under that hood near the horn for water or ice or water leak at the windshield to the column. Good Luck, Fran M (PS you may also see a damp drivers side floorboard if leaking good enough there.

When i turn on the heat it smell like coolant


Your heater core is leaking anti-boil into the cabin. Either the core or the connections to the core are broken. CAUTION: Anti-boil is poisonous. Whenever working on the system take great care to keep it off your skin and do not allow it to puddle anywhere as dogs and cats are attracted to it as it has a sweet smell. Also, do not work on the system when it is hot as it can cause burns.

Drain anti-boil (wait until car is cool!!) and pull the core. It is located in the HVAC system, bottom right side. You will need to remove a substantial quantity of interior components to do this. Be prepared for some coolant spillage as you remove the core.

Using new hose clamps, install the new heater core, ensuring all connections are secure. Install any previously-removed interior/HVAC components or covers.

Refill the anti-boil through the overflow bottle, leaving the cap off. With the heater set to max heat, start the car, and allow to warm to normal operating temperature. Now slowly fill in the coolant to the specified level until the system is free from air bubbles. Install the cap.

Stop the engine and allow it to cool. Remove the cap slowly, allowing any residual air pressure to be released. Top up the anti-boil as needed, again leaving the cap off. Start the engine and allow it to warm to normal operating temperature. Top up anti-boil again, slowly to eliminate any air bubbles.

You may need to repeat this procedure two or three times until all air is purged from the system.

A/c wont come out cold threw vents


The tubing is cold because the system has a leak &
the refrigerant is boiling off to a gas too soon, because it
is low on refrigerant & not under the proper pressure
to stay at a liquid up to the expansion valve

You need a shop that does A/C work to fix the leak & recharge the system

Do not try & add to it, you will hurt yourself,let air in & cause
problems & polute the atmosphere

I am not getting any heat in my car and it was warmed up. The tempature gage is rising high. What fluid is low? I also, have a leak of something on the passenger's side coming out of engine, it is clear...


Sounds like it's low on coolant. Check radiator. If low on coolant, heater may not get hot & temp gauge will read hot. The leak could possibly be a coolant leak..? Anti-freeze has a distinct odor when leaking from a hot engine. If that's the case, find the leak and have it repaired.

'97 540i spluttering & cutting out


best bet is to go get any codes that may be stored in the PCM. This will take alot of the guess work out of diagnosing it. Or remove the spark plgs and replace them.. If you have 50,000 or more this could be the cause but a code may tell you which one is the issue

Burning smell under the hood and light came on saying coolant low refill, had it refilled and that is when I smelled burning smell


It could just be the smell of anti-freeze that was spilled onto the exhaust or is sitting in one of the many little "pool"s on the top of the motor. Does it have a sickeningly sweet smell - like molasses? If so, that is most likely the problem . You can try hosing (very light pressure here!) off the engine compartment to rinse off any that has spilled. If you do this and still have this problem - I would check for leaks - both while the car has been running for 10 minutes or so, and also AFTER it has been shut off after running for the same amount of time.

Hope this helps!

1998 jaguar xj8 consumes anti-freeze


First thing to check is the radiator cap seal. If it is not sealing properly, the water will boil off and then soon, the anti freeze will begin to disappear. Clean the metal surfaces and gasket and make sure it is tight ---or buy a new cap --but make sure there is a seal. If that doesn't cure it, you may have a head gasket leak that blows the coolant (anti freeze) into one cylinder. If that cylinder is tight, the coolant will only evaporate in the heat and be blown out the exhaust --not entering the oil pan. Check your exhaust when you start up. You may see white smoke, or even liquid, exiting the exhaust pipe, indicating a blown head gasket (then engine may run rough, too). If this is the case, there are reasonably inexpensive cures for this in some cases.

Overheating,reserve coolant tank boiling I have a 2000 Ford Taurus with the similar problem. I had my water pump replaced then this started.


Ford 2000 Taurus

To solve the problem you have the things to do in this order;

) When the engine is cold top off the radiator with fluid. (When the pump was replaced the fluid should have been also)
) Make sure the radiator fluid has anti-freeze in it. This is also anti boil also !
) Add fluid to the overflow reservoir.
) Make sure the drive belt was replaced on the water pump.
) With the engine running, you can add fluid to the radiator for the first minute or so. You want to get air pockets out.
) Replace radiator cap.
) Let car warm up. When it's hot you should get the radiator fan coming on.
) When it get hotter the air-conditioning fan may come on.
) If the fan does not come on, the heat sensor is probably bad.
) If all fans come on, and it overheats, you may have a bad thermostat. Trace the upper radiator hose to where it connects to the engine. That's where it located.

Do not operate the engine when it overheats, You will damage the head gaskets and cause radiator fluid to leak into the cylinders.
If you smell radiator fluid in the exhaust fumes, it may already be leaking.
