It sounds like the car is starting to over heat because the fan is not comming on. The fan sensor switch could be bad or the fan motor could be faulty or maybe it is not getting power to run it. You can check that with a volt meter and run a jumper wire from the fan motor to the battery to see if the fan will spin when it has power too it.

2004 hyundai elantra.. car had coolant leak the other day and temp gauge went past red lines. Leaking out the passenger side front of car, round piece with hole in it.. bf put stopleak in it and filled...


Let's go over a list of things here and get everything organized. Most cars have an "open" coolant system, meaning that if it gets too hot (thus increasing the pressure inside the coolant system), the reservoir or radiator cap will open up and allow that pressure to release, or the coolant to expel - which would cause you to spill coolant.

After it cooled down, you were able to drive it for 70 miles - presumably on the highway/interstate/freeway, or another road that may not have a whole lot of stopping.

Then you started driving in town, most likely with stoplights or stop signs. The car overheated then and you weren't able to get it restarted (which is normal and is a safety feature on a lot of cars).

Fluids are good, the fan is kicking on, and the belts haven't broken.

Okay, so you actually did a pretty good job narrowing this down (assuming I didn't miss anything). The car is doing it's overheating when you're in stop and go traffic, with low airflow. If you are running your air conditioning, try turning it off and see if that keeps you from overheating (assuming the car starts now). If it does, then chances are your fan isn't kicking into high-speed. On some vehicles, you have two fans, on others you only have one. If you have two fans, one will only kick on when the AC is running. If you have one fan, it should have two speeds. A low-speed for simply cooling the engine, and a high-speed for when the AC is running.

If you don't overheat when the AC is running, check your relay box under the hood and search for a relay that should be labeled something along the lines of "Fan 2", "Fan High", "Fan AUX", or "Fan AC". If you find one, replace it or try switching it with another relay. Good luck!

Transmission fluid leak but the underneath is dry .Fluid coming out of the hood


The only thing that would cause it to be on the hood is it being flung by something. So it is getting on belts or pulleys. The biggest thing to check is the dipstick and the tube that it sits in. Also be advised that ATF on the exhaust manifold or cat can cause the engine to catch fire.

Hard to steer 2000 Dodge Neon but belt is okay


Check to see if you enough Steering Fluid. If the fluid was recently flushed, make sure they put right kind of fluid. I once had my fluid replace and they topped it with the wrong spec fluid. Had to reflush and put the correct fluid. Belt will usually make noise, not cause the steering to stiffen up. Hope this helps, let us know if a better answer comes along.

1994 jeep cherokee heat doesnt work


this is very common problem on ZJ when cabin heater is clogged or worn or rusted. unfortunatelly it is really hard thing to correct. you need to remove almost all dash parts to reach heater core. after reaching it you will find the hole causing water to be drained into passenger floor or just a torn hose. both situations require you to remove almost everything.

Will not engage in reverse


Check the fluid level and condition.
If fluids low, top off.
if fluid is okay, then try the cheapest fix, changing the fliud and filter.
Last week, buddy of mine had the same problem. We racked out brains, checked everything. We tried changing his fluid (ATF) and it was like syrup. Truck works fine now.

Before the fluid change though, check all linkages to the transmission. Maybe something isn't right there. It wouldn't make total sense, due to it having to go through reverse to get to drive anyways, but it wouldn't hurt to look!

Hope this helps.

Computer may or may not start up. When it does, it may or may ..


Go with a known good working hard drive, its the easiest thing to replace and instead of reimaging it, install windows from scratch and then load the drivers for whatever it doesnt find and then see how it runs, if the lockups stop happeneing then load the apps that you want and everything should be okay.
