  1. Hey guys, I made a rookie mistake. I accidentally forgot I had a screw in my hand and when I went down to look under the car. My hand had popped against the front bumper releasing the screw to land right on top of my Intercooler. Upon trying to get it out I pushed it further right between the radiator and Intercooler. At this point I’m assuming it has dropped on the splash guard, but if not what risk does this impose when I’m driving. Will it be fine? Thank you for your time! the picture below is where it landed and than the arrow points to where it has gone to.
  2. When I was changing my oil last week, I noticed a cable that was unhooked. Can anyone tell me where this needs to be plugged in at? The cable is at the front of my car in front of the condenser. I have no idea where it goes. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
  3. My 2001 Jetta has experienced intermittent issues with antifreeze exhaustion and overheating. Found that only one of the two radiator fans is coming on. There are no obvious leaks/defects in any hoses, though stop-leak solution has been used in the past with some success in this car. Should both radiator fans be turning on and working concurrently? What should I do about the non-working fan?
  4. I didn't see this leak until this morning when I came back to work. My car was parked in this spot all day yesterday while at work. I pulled up and saw it and I figure it came from my car as I doubt anyone else parked there. I work as a nanny so I work in someone's home, leaving my car parked in a driveway. The family I work for keep their cars parked in the garage. As you can see from the pics, it is on the left passenger side and more towards the middle of the car. The color is hard to tell in the pics but from outside, it looks brown. I don't know if this could just be because it has been sitting there for a long while or not, though. I'd hope that if the family I work for noticed a red leak (like transmission fluid) in their driveway after I had left, that they would say something about it. But maybe not. I always thought transmission fluid doesn't soak in to pavement like that, as whatever this is, seems to have done. It isn't from my AC. I use my AC very minimally and I get here very early in the morning, 6AM, so I wouldn't even need it in the first place. Plus, I prefer having my windows down. I've been having a few symptoms which I've been unable to explain or figure out. My car hesitates while driving. It does not hesitate while accelerating or decelerating. Only when driving at high speeds. It seems to do it worse the longer I drive it, and sometimes (it's not always the case) after the engine warms up. Sometimes, it doesn't do it at all. I can't figure out when and why it happens. I just know that it does. I also need new tires badly, so I don't know if this could have an affect on the hesitation feeling or not. I say feeling, because it is hard to explain. It really feels kinda like a hiccup, more so than a "hesitation." I have a 2000 Dodge Neon. I have replaced a few minor things over the last two weeks. I had head gasket valves replaced. PCV pipe and valve replaced. Gas hose replaced. And the lower radiator hose replaced. My dad did all of this for me. And he also did a coolant flush when he replaced the radiator hose. I had it inspected two weeks ago when I went and got an oil change.. but I took it to Firestone, and they didn't do a very good inspection at all. I'm planning on taking it by a local transmission place ASAP, but it's hard to manage a time slot because I work full time and this place is only open on weekdays!! Grr! If it's a transmission leak, how much might it cost to fix this? I actually just bought this car almost three weeks ago from a dealer for pretty cheap ($1500). But it took me a long time to save just that small amount, because I've had school loans/bills to pay off (and still do.) I just need a car to get me to work and back. I won't use it for anything else. I drive about 20 miles a day and that is it. But it is going to really suck if this is a huge, costly fix. I'm not even sure it'd be worth it at this point as I believe the car is on it's last leg anyways, and will probably only last me a year or two.. which is really all the time I needed it for anyways. It's got 148,098 miles on it right now. Any assistance or expertise would be helpful. I know it's hard to diagnose without looking at the car yourself, but suggestions would be great. Thanks.
  5. Hey guys, I needed a new radiator for my Austin Healey but couldn’t find one anywhere until a friend told me about a company called “Ready Rads”. They provided a great service, including collecting my Radiator and then delivering it back to me once the repairs were finished. I would recommend this company to anyone who is in the same situation I was :’). Their website is www.readyrads.co.uk if you use them ask for Dave, he was a great help.
  6. I'm trying to get a group buy together for discounted radiators, anyone interested?
