  1. I've got an 02 Buick Century. Ive got oil in my coolant overflow. Ive drained the oil ,and there was no coolant in the oil. I've checked trans fluid and there is no coolant in there either. What's a cheapish way to tell if it's the radiator or the head gasket?
  2. Fluid leaking from the transmission fitting on the radiator of a Honda Civic 05’, any ideas on how to stop it? I’ve been suggested to put teflon tape on it
  3. Hello All, I need to flush my Mustang Water/Coolant. It has been sitting for a while, and when I started it recently, the thermostat did not open. Luckily, it did not overheat badly, just a little. I turned on my heater vents full blast and the temp went down. Also, the smell was like dirty water. I use regular tap water, which I will changing to distilled water and the correct coolant mixed at the correct ratio from now on. I changed my thermostat, and that fixed my overheating problem, now I need to change and flush my radiator and reservoir. I bought sea foam. I know I can use this. I would just like some help, and confirmation. I will be adding sea foam to my gas tank, 1 oz per gal of fuel, and I would also to know how much I should add to my water. I am thinking to flush my radiator multiple times. I will also be removing my thermostat again, and also my lower radiator hose to flush the ports in my engine, in which the water travels. I am thinking first to change my water out with tap water. And let it idle for a while. Then drain and take apart thermostat and lower hose to flush out the engines’ water ports. I would like to know if there is anything I can add to my water to make the rust come out, and also to clean the walls of the ports. I only have sea foam, but if anyone can recommend anything else, that would be great. Also, if someone can please point out the screw under my radiator that I have to remove to drain it, that would be great. I’ve done my thermostat and other work on my car, but not a radiator drain. I will be looking at my chilton’s manual and also on other sites for this. But always best to have multiple answers pointing at the same thing, for confirmation. So yeah, if anyone has done this before and knows a better way than I described, or if you know of something to add to my water to get it to clean the port walls, that would be great. Thank you SR
  4. 2007 Lincoln MKX radiator fans not working. Have checked every thing. New Temp Sensor, New Fan assembly, New Thermostat, fuses good, checked continuity and still not working. Not even when the ac is on. I'm lost.
  5. Hi, I replaced my radiator in my car but now it’s leaking from the bottom of the thing that holds the radiator in place. I can’t tell why but it’s leaking really bad, so any help would be great. Thanks
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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?
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. I'm trying to get a group buy together for discounted radiators, anyone interested?
