I'm driving Kia sorento 2010,there's a sizzling


Depends.
The exhaust is very hot, especially when you stop the engine.
You could be hearing the metal cooling off, or you could be hearing something dripping on the hot pipe. Or melting onto the pipe.

What you are describing sounds like what's called a freeze-plug. These are round plugs or inserts in the engine that are designed to pop out if the coolant should freeze to avoid cracking the block. the orange goo is rust mixed with coolant. This indicates that the freeze plug is leaking coolant and should be replaced (not a major job).

Hello, welcome to FixYa.

This is just the normal operation...specifically the defrost cycle every frost free unit must cycle through every 8-12 hours.

You are correct, the sizzle is water (from the melting ice) dripping onto the defrost heater. It is all normal so no need to worry.

Traulsen refrigerator drain pan sizzles as the hot water is being evaporated. what can absorb and/or safely deflect this hot water as it hits the pan?


The problem is not in your drain pan, the problem is why is your drain pan getting hot enough to sizzle water as it hits it?

Are there hot spots on the cabinet? That would be a sign that the condenser grill is not able to transfer heat out of the sealed unit compartment. Which could mean a dirty condenser grill or back panel. Are items stored behind the unit that is affecting air flow? Is the compressor fan working and pushing air across the condenser grill and compressor.

Oil in these heaters is not supposed to sizzle. So, I don't think it's the oil. Something else is probably making the sizzling noise and that's what concerns me. As this type of heater literally makes no noise. What you hear may be a short in the wiring of the heater. In which case, it's unsafe to use.
You didn't mention if the heater is new or that you've had it for sometime, but in either case, I would recommend not using it. If it's new, then it's still under warranty and you have some recourse. Check your Owners Manual for details on how to handle this as a warranty issue.

My lakewood electric heater plug gets hot and starts melting, I have to use a three prong adapter to plug this in..can u help?


Sounds like heat element is defective drawing too much current. Make sure you are not using an extension cord on this heater, it has to be plugged directly into wall socket. Post model number on here so we know what unit we are dealing with.

just off the wall guess here but sounds like oil filter sending unit in the pan these get cloged with old sitting oil use a solution like warner mystery oil in pan with normal oil this will break down old oil after 500 miles replace oil and do it again for 3 + 500 mile oil changes this will help clean out the old oil
also you might have gotten your plug wires wrong in fireing order

Falling water hits something hot in freezer and causes sizzle sound


the sizzling noise is water hitting the defrost elememt and this is normal - shows the defrost system is working. if water comes on the floor of the freezer, this may be the drain for the defrost water is blocked. remove the freexer back panel and the drain is in the tray where the defrost water is caught. if it is blocked - usually with ice - clear it with hot water and make sure the water drains freely. takes some patience and maybe several attempts
