Cesar Lascaster: I have a gmc 1997 1500 z...something that I just got. I notice that the temperature gages were rising all the way to the red line then it came back to normal. when that happens heater is not working it only blows cool air. so what I did, I checked the radiator when it was cold, to my surprise it was almost empty. so I pour two coolant/antifreeze started the engine went home from work next day I rode the truck no problems so far. at the end of the day it started all over again. but this time there was coolant. so what's going on here?
Cesar Lascaster: I like this.
Sarah Lassiter: also my heat and ac do work normally
Sarah Lassiter: hey, so I am doing some research to figure out why my 2000 Chevy blazer smokes out of the heater vents. and I get a strange burning smell that I can't quite pin point. but I know that it does not have the maple syrup (antifreeze) smell. the guages do not over heat but I get the smoke coming out the vents and the odor. I only really get the smoke when I am driving uphill or accelerating a little harder. i also noticed that the muffler suddenly became very loud up towards the front end of the vehicle. I've checked all fluids and top off low ones. any idea of what may be causing this problem?

Keenen Davis: hey I got a 2006 mazda 3 sedan i have no idea why my temperature gauge keeps going up however i did check my coolant level before and after and i realized that there was alot more coolant in the bottle as if the coolant is being backed up when this occurs my heat blows cold and couple times i see streaks of coolant in my driveway does anyone have any idea as to what is causing this
Wester: My truck is overheating. It is a 2007 dodge ram. The catalytic converter just went bad. When I checked my coolant it was low and I filled it up. There is clearly a leak somewhere. I also smell something through my Air conditioner, kind of like a burning smell. There is no smoke. Any tips?
jackie cleveland: can a blown head gasket cause a car to overheat? I took my car in to be diagnosis for a SMALL water leak found under the car after it had been sitting for two days....my Mechanic pressure tested and concluded that it was leaking from the back middle of the head gasket, he put in stop leak two and my car overheated on the 4 mile drive home!? It had NEVER overheated until that drive home from the mechanics shop. What could cause that? I asked him if he thought it was the stop leak clogging the thermostat and he said NO. Sorry and hung up the phone! I very much appreciate your expert opinion on this. I ended up having my radiator blow open on me and after having it replaced by another mechanic (who said it did not have a leaking head gasket,) the car still over heated and we had to put a rebuilt engine in it. Because the stop leak had clogged the engine ports. Who do I believe!?!?
123456qw6: I have a question I have a 04 Civic lx i changed the thermostat (aftermarket) and after i filled it with 50/50 antifreeze and after a few days the needle started rising and I bleed the air out (not sure if I did it right). Now after I did this, the needle still kept rising, so now I added antifreeze while the car is running and I notice the coolant only drops when the fan turns on... what can I do at this point?
john funk: Hello! I have a question to ask you. I have a 97 Oldsmobile and while I was driving on the highway the car started idol funny. The temperature gauge went to red but no smoke from overheating. However, the coolant was over filled. You have any idea what could be the problem? Thank You!
EMT: Thanks! They sometimes skip corners and take the easy way. If they ever did that, I suggest you consult with a paralegal or lawyer. This way they won't be able to cheat you.
