When you "Filled it with antifreeze, how many gallons did it take? Also, pull the oil dip stick and look at the oil on the stick. Does it look milky? If so, you have a blown head gasket and that's where your water/antifreeze has been going.

no you can blow a head gasket even only getting it hot that one time, it doesnt take much, extreme heat is a engines worst enemy, i would replace head gasket right away and to be safe i personally change the thermostats in my vehicle atleast once a year. good luck

Just filled the gas tank in my 2006 f-350 turbo diesel super duty (6.0), started the truck and the guage showed a full tank. Drove down the road about 1/10 of a mile and the guage dropped to dead empty...


A loose connection on the sending unit could cause the problem but also moisture in the tank in cold weather could also be a factor in which i would add fuel line antifreeze to a full tank of fuel..........Hope this helps you out.

if there is no noticable leaks might be head gasket. Check to see if a lot of vapour comming from exaust. You may have to get a pressure test on cooling system.

99 Sunfire Coolant keeps dumping


You need to find the source of the leak. it hasn't overheated yet because you keep catching it and re-filling. From your description, it sounds a lot like a bad water pump seal (part of pump) but without physically looking you can't be sure of that. when the pump seal begins to fail, internal pressure while running often will drive the seal tighter against the shaft stopping the leak. as pressure drops as the engine cools, the seal relaxes and permits seepage.
With time, that will change and it will leak all the time.

Change your fuel filter, it may have gone it's life time and is getting to dirty to let fuel flow properly. Your fuel pump to may be getting weak, if the fuel filter is dirty the pump works harder and heats up and could be over heating the fuel pump relay too. The fuel pump relay i believe is in the glove box behind a panel that say relay, there should be (3) in there and the middle one is the fuel pump's. switch then around after you change the fuel filter and if you get a chance, check your fuel pressure at the shredder valve. Good luck and hope this help's if there is a Auto Zone around you, you can ask to use the fuel pressure gauge to see what fuel pressure you have and they'll have the step by step instructions on how to do it and takes about 5 min to do and will have the fuel filter and step by step to replace that too. Keep me posted, be glad to help.

2000 Intrigue Oldsmobile over heating


I have a 2000 Intrigue that had the same overheating problem only when it gets below 0 degrees. I read many forums on this matter and it only got me more confused. It had thumping in the heater hose lines when it got hot. So here is what I did to cure the problem....I first installed a new thermostat that I purchased from NAPA Auto-$43. I noticed that it has a small one way valve built into the housing. I took a 1/8 inch drill bit and drilled down through the hole to make it a 2 way hole so coolant could get through (and air could escape when bleeding the system). I then took off the purge tank and flushed it out with hot water to get all of the crud out of it. When I reinstalled all of the hoses and thermostat, I coated the gasket seal and inside the hoses with high temp RTV. I also took off those wierd squeeze clamps and used the screw type hose clamps. I suspected that it was drawing air into the system when it cooled down and with the RTV and new clamps, that problem was eliminated! I reinstalled the surge tank and filled with 50/50 mixture of Dex Cool, then started the engine. I opened the bleeder valve on the top right corner of the radiator and left it open until a good steady stream of antifreeze came out. I kept putting antifreeze into the surge tank until it came up to the full cold mark. Then I left the pressure cap off and drove the car for about 10 miles at normal speed. During this time I had the heater running on high. When I stopped the car I added enough antifreeze to bring the surge tank level to full hot and put the pressure cap on. I then drove it for another 10 miles or so and checked the level, right on the full hot line. By the way, I also put on a new pressure cap. For $7 it was worth the money. I drove the car around for about another hour and the temp gauge only got up to a little over 1/4! Oh, I also put a new serpentine belt, just because the old one had 60,000 miles on it. So for $43 (new thermostat), $7 (new pressure cap), $12 (more Dex Cool), $24 (new serpentine belt), and $20 (new clamps, High Heat RTV, etc) the problem is fixed!! The reason I drilled out the hole in the thermostat housing was for air to escape when bleeding the system. This was the one and only time I have had problems with overheating, just in real cold temps, and I hope it never comes back! So for a little over $100 (MUCH less than a garage would charge!), you can do the same thing with a few tools.

look for leaks on the passenger side!!!! also this car has a "air pocket" you need to find the bleed off screw on the upper hose fitting on the engine and bleed it when filling up with coolant
