Did they just add coolant,or did they drain and refill?(They may not have gotten all the air out of the system).

1987 ltd crown victoria in alaska. Did oil change and added coolant at an autoshop, caused the heat to come back on. 1 week in -20 degree wheater later car starts after waitin 10 min+. Engine would do 1...


did you use normal coolant or a glycerol based anti freeze, this prevents your coolant from freezing in sub zero temperatures, the other big thing is the viscosity of the oil, that means how thick the oil is at different tempratures, colder ambient temprature lower the number, etc.

My oil light suddenly goes on & makes noise- the 1999 Town & Country stalls once in a while-what could be the problem?


Could be time for a new van.
The oil light is warning the driver engine oil pressure has dropped below 10 psi, not necessarily that the engine is low on oil.
Common causes for low oil pressure is a faulty oil pump or screen, or worn engine parts.
The fact you are also adding coolant and you don't see any external leaks sounds like the engine is reaching the end of its life.

If there are no coolant leaks then check your engine oil to be sure it is not over full or foamy because if there is coolant getting into the oil it will cause irreversible damage to the engine. If the engine has ever over heated the head gasket/s could also be leaking and will need replaced.

Accidentally added antifreeze to oil instead of


since it was such a small amount of anti freeze and water,anti freeze has a petrolem base and water would have sunk to the bottom of oil pan, change oil and filter and you should be ok

Front heater not heating properly have added coolant also can smell coolant at times rear heater was not working but now it began to heat


It stopped heating because it was low on coolant and the hot coolant flowing through the heater core is what gives you heat. As for the smell 9 times out of 10 if you are smelling the sweet smell of anti-freeze in the vehicle it is the heater core. see if the passenger floorboard is wet or damp. If it is , the heater core has failed.

No heat


My 2005 Nissan Sentra 1.8s with 55,000 mi. blows cold air from the heater. Coolant not circulating in engine. Lower hose stays cool to touch. Both heater hoses cold. Changed thermostat - didn't fix it. Coolant not leaking or dirty. None in oil - no oil in radiator. Changed worn water pump belt - pump spins freely with no noise or resistance. Cooling fans come on after warm-up. Temperature gauge stays in normal range then jumps to hot and back again. Coolant good to 10 below - didn't freeze here yet. No other problems or repairs to car. Afraid to drive and make worse. Help!

1990 Honda Civic low kms. overheated, added


I want you to take a couple of spark plugs out and examine them. If you find Anti-freeze on them then you may have a blown headgasket. A very common problem of driving a car until it overheats. I really do hope im wrong. Since it is an overhead valve engine with the cam shaft above...its a 1000.00 to 1500.00 dollar job to have it properly repaired. From here out im just going to explain why this happens...
When a car overheats - be it a faulty thermostat...low coolant...or a faulty water pump or improper coolant mixture ratio. The engine gets so hot that it actually makes the top of the engine change shape... it actually changes enough to damage the head gasket. The head gasket keeps the explosion inside the combustion chamber. Keeps the water in its coolant jacket. and keeps the oil inside its ports. When the Headgasket fails. Sometimes coolant gets into the oil (makes a milky residue form on the inside of the oil filler cap...or makes the engine oil look like chocolate milk.) or oil gets into the coolant (makes your coolant have an oil slick on top) It can also cause water to get into the combustion chamber and when the engine is running - blast the combustion back into the coolant (causes the coolant overflow to overflow or spray) or oil gets into the combustion chamber causing the plugs to get fouled (dirty). worse case...all the above happens. I hope this helps in figuring this problem out...i really do hope im wrong about a blown headgasket . As even i tremble in fear of it happening to my car. Good Luck!

Engine coolant has turned to a gel and engine overheated


The reason that your anti-freeze is gelling in your rad is that the mixture of anti-freeze and water is too weak. this could be because of old anti-freeze(same as oil,it deteriorates over time, usually 2 to 5 years), or there could just be too much water added. I would suggest a cooling system flush, and re-fill with a new 50/50 mixture of water and anti-freeze.
