Seem like some rusty liquid flowing out but not flooding the floor very tiny little bit clean it and it appears the next day ... Is this normal? Is something breaking soon? Pls help. Many thanksSome people use plain water plus a white rust inhibitor that will turn into a milky coolant. I would flush it and start with the blue or aluminum engine specific coolant. The weep hole leaking is an indication of a worn water pump. Show this to your mechanic, start on post 969: ,,,

My 52 inch rear projection tv pops and goes off and won't go back on for awhile

Sounds like something on the power board is overheating and shutting down. If you aren't completely comfortable working around hot circuits be very careful attempting to determine what is overheating.

Car was driving fine then just died, now engine wont turn over

Check the engine oil level. It should be in between upper and lower marks. Check the coolant level. If the oil and coolant levels are OK put the car in 4th gear (if manual Transmission) pull/push it back and forth, if the engine revolves comfortably then the starter motor or battery is at fault and if not then the engine is seized.

Coolant bubbling out of the overflow

While driving with the heat on you are taking the heat off of the coolant via the heater coil, letting the engine stay a little cooler. You might want to have your radiator cap checked, coolant level and also the flow through the radiator. it could be plugged. take it to your mechanic if you are not comfortable doing this yourself. You can be injured by hot coolant under pressure.

My 2000 sunfire overheats like at a stoplight are sitting on

you need to check your coolant level and add coolant if you are low. if this still does not fix it you need to change your thermostat. the water is not being cooled down and the water is being ran through the engine block non stop beacuse the thermostat is stuck in the open position. for a quick fix and too keep ur engine from blowing the headgasket run your heater full blast at a stop light this will help the coolant cool down a bit.

What kind of coolant should be used for the 1998 Oldsmobile Regency?

By 1998 General Motors was using Dexcool. Stick with whatever color coolant you have in the vehicle if your just topping up. If flushing the system you may refill it with either dexcool or conventional coolant. Although I believe the rec. coolant for your vehicle is dexcool which is a pinkish color.

Where does the power steering fluid go?

It sucks. Its in far left back corner, behind the coolant reservoir. To get to it, you need to at least remove the coolant reservoir. This is pretty easy as it's just a couple of nuts. But it's still a pain to get to. I don't have small hands so I removed the bolts from the front motor mounts and rocked the car backward to tilt the engine forward. This made the power steering reservoir accessible. This is also fairly dangerous, so don't do it if you're not comfortable.

There is a coolant leak in my 97' oldsmobile achieva sl

If the coolant is leaking into the vehicle, I assume the passenger side, then more than likely it is the heater core. There are two possible fixes, the first, is to remove the dashboard, costly. Or, second bypass the heater core, the only problem with that is, you won't have any heat in the passenger compartment. So depending where you live that is a call of personal comfort. That should FixYa.

I replaced water pump, radiator, belts, fan

Make sure the thermostat is new and it opens up when hot, you can do that by submerging it into a pot of boiling water for a while and you will see it opening up, if it doesn't then is bad. Also, make sure that the coolant (or antifreeze, depending where you live of course) is not brownish or "muddy" like, this would mean that oil is mixing with your coolant which could mean that you have a blown head gasket and needs to be replaced. If you see the "muddy" looking like coolant, then it is very likely you have a blown head gasket. You can do it yourself, is a looooong job and it takes a lot of patience, but it can be done. If you don't feel comfortable doing it then get it done by someone that is going to really get ALL the gaskets replaced, not only the ones on top of the cylinder heads, and that they charge you fair. The whole gasket set can run between $150 and $500 depending on the car, but the head gaskets alone can run between $60 and $150, depending on the car of course. Read about your car before you go to a mechanic, it will save you a lot of headaches and extra expenses.
