Why does your engine keep empting of water when you park up?
If you have proper combustion in your engine it actually produces water. The water that is emptying is condensation from the exhaust pipe because you are getting good combustion.
The idle valve is probably stuck. It probably needs to be changed. ----------------------------------- This may also indicate a vacuum air leak. My Odyssey did this recently. The idle and all other vacuum systems are connected. If one leaks, the idle may be effected. Question: Is your TCS light c...
I suspect the switch is bad.
Modern engines have tight tolerances, so it's possible the engine may not have taken on any water.Water doesn't compress, so any water in the combustion chamber is likely to damage a piston or connecting rod.This phenomenon, called "hydrolocking," will ruin an engine pronto.
When you park it, the car cools down and the moisture condenses on the windows.If you have the INSIDE of your windows fogging up, you have moisture inside somewhere.You may have a sunroof drain plugged, torn or missing door vapor barrier, leaking windshield, or leaking heater core.
Fogging is caused by warm, humid air inside your car forming condensation on the cooler windows.It's the reverse of the water droplets that form outside of an ice-cold can of drink on a warm, humid summer's day.Modern cars are especially susceptible to fogging.
Try cleaning or replacing the Idle air control sensor.
Depending on the vehicle and the amount of after market parts this could be caused by;A Supercharger, worn Timing Belt, worn serpentine belt, interference with the Radio or Intake.
Its water in the gasoline mixture. When the car is first started, the engine temperature is not high enough to evaporate the water in the gas, so the water travels out the exhaust pipe
only if the thermostat is stuck open or has been removed
Could be your MAP sensor or Absolute Manifold Pressure sensor same thing usually mounted on or near the firewall and has at least two hoses"vacuum" going into it.
If a manual transmission, place te shifted into first gear. If automatic, place the shifted into park. Regardless, if the car faces up the hill with the curb on the right, turn the wheels as far to the left as possible. If facing downhill with the curb on the right, turn the wheel as far to the r...
ouch, to get water on plugs the engine either has a cracked head or a cracked block
check the ignition switch , it might be bad and may need to be replaced.
If it froze up from lack of antifreeze protection, you can have the vehicle towed to a heated garage and wait, then hope and pray no serious damage was done from freezing.If the pump froze up from a bad bearing in the pump, replacing the pump is required.
The automatic electric antenna is retracting or trying to. It should be silent after it has fully gone down.
Why does the ac work when parked but when you drive your car it blows hot then cold and idle goes up and down?
Many ac systems use engine vacuum to operate the ac controls. You may have a cracked or disconnected vacuum line that feeds the HVAC system. Check the vacuum lines under the hood, that is where they would most likely be damaged. A vacuum leak would also be the cause of the erratic idle.
Why does your astra 1.6 sxi twinport keep stalling when it gets hot. revs keep going up and downthen stalls thanks?
Your "astra 1.6 sxi twinport" is fuel injected, unless you can diagnose computer related issues I would defer to a mechanic for this problem; but based on some limited search of your problem your vehicle seems to have an EGR problem, which if you replace yourself is not cost prohibitive. The typi...
On some makes of vehicle, the engine fan is supposed to keep running after the engine is shut off, if it was operating on a long trip on a hot day, for example. Come back to the car in 10-15 minutes. If the fan is still running, you have a problem. If it has shut off, all is well.
It's probably your tires. maybe they automatically slow down when they go over water so u don't slip. it could also be your engine.I still say it is resistence.EDIT: Tires lose friction when driving over water and can hydroplane and slide.
More than likely the heater core is leaking coolant. Replacement of heater core is all you can do with that.
Your car might kick when you shift from park to drive if your transmission fluid is low or very dirty. You might also have worn gears in the transmission.
Air must pass over the fins in the condenser to help the compressor turn the freon gas back into a liquid. The radiator fan doesn't pull enough air through the condenser efficiently when in park.
Check your joints, universal, CV ect that is likely your problem. Like people, when cars joints wear out they dont work properly.
This is because the engine is cold. The oil is all at the bottom, and does not want to move around. So the engine revs up more because it is trying to produce heat and get the oil circulating as fast as possible. The engine runs in an open loop, meaning the computer has a preset running condition...
An engine can seize if internal components get locked up and the crankshaft cannot turn on the bearings.This happens when parts such as pistons, rod bearings, and piston rings overheat and get fused together.The most common cause of a seized engine is insufficient oil.
As you drive, there's friction between the tires and the road.Friction means heat — and heat means an increase in tire pressure.You'll be tempted to let air out of the tires, because the tire pressure will be greater than 35 PSI.Do not do this, because the tires will be under inflated.
If the air that the engine requires to run is blocked, especially sporadically, it can cause the engine to slow down.When the blockage moves or clears, the engine may suddenly rev up in response.To fix this type of problem, check the air filter to ensure that it's not clogged with dirt and debris.
If the coolant temperature gauge is constantly fluctuating then the most common cause of this is a bad thermostat.If the thermostat is sticking or not opening and closing right then this will occur.It can also be a clog in the radiator or a water pump problem.
The temperature gauge electrical sender is positioned next to the thermostat, so it indicates the drop from 75 down to 70, when the thermostat closes.If this is not happening, usually it is because the thermostat is stuck in the open position and needs replacing.
Does parking a car on an inclined driveway ruin/damage its transmission? Yes, it can cause damage.If you are parked on a steep incline putting the car in “Park” and not using the parking brake will put a lot of stress on the “park” mechanism inside your transmission.
If you mean the engine continues to run after you shut it off, then it's called dieseling. It's caused by carbon buildup on the tops of the pistons, which can get red hot (called hot spots). Sometimes after the engine has been shut off, fuel injectors or carburetors leak gasoline into the cylinde...
When in park and you press and release gas pedal engine keeps accelerating and wont stop until you turn it off why?
The throttle is sticking, check on the throttle body for something holding it open, the reason it stops when you shut it off is because you stop the flow of fuel.
power steering belt, if serpentine belt, your p/s pump might be low on oil or going south. but check belt and oil level first.Good luck
If your ac is working well and is on in humid weather it will dehumidify the air and can drain quite a bit of water which you can see especially well when stopping the car it will drain underneath the car usually near the firewall in the desert when dry it might not drain at all but the more humi...
The key lock, steering wheel and shifter are all designed to work together. Make sure the wheel isn't jammed and will not allow the release of the shifter when the key is on. Also, many cars have a device that locks the shifter until the brake pedal is depressed. Could also be damaged linkage or ...
to alert you that the car has been unlocked
On a newer car, the car's brake must be applied to get out of park. Most cars will not go out of park if the key is not in the "on" position. It may stick if it's very cold outside. In an older car, parking on a hill can cause the shift lever to stick in park.To avoid the last one, apply the park...
No more than it would harm parking it facing downhill. Makes no difference really. Just make very certain that you do these things when parking:* always point the wheels away from the curb when facing uphill * always point the wheels toward the curb when facing downhill * always set the parking b...
MY 03 ALTIMA HAD THE SAME PROBLEM I HAD TO REPLACE THE CAM SENSORSAND THE PROBLEM WAS SOLVE
When you hit the bump and you have the brakes applied, the tire will lock up when the tire is air-born for a moment.
how is to dry it in the car wash is the answer.
Sounds like the condenser isn't getting enough air flow over it. Maybe your fan its operating properly
Not unless it's already fairly pristine. And you'd have to use boiling water to degrease. Orange oil is much better. It's an earth friendly cleaner and it degreases very nicely. All the state agencies use it on heavy equipment. I used to work for the NDOR and we used it to clean off tar, grease, ...
all it will do is kill your engine if alot of it gets sucked up by your fuel pump, or else it will cause your exhaust to appear a little bit white until all of the water is burned off.but if you want to remove it, use seafoam which you can buy at schucks, napa, or autozone, or just put a bottle o...
It doesn't actually keep you safe. If I was going to come up behind you and slice your throat open, that key fob isn't going to prevent it. Now, having it in your hand lets you unlock your doors in a hurry if need be, and you can hit the panic button, which may or may not deter an attack. So, if ...
Its not your engine. Its the fan running to cool the engine down. They all do it and nothing is wrong with your car.
More likely there is a leak somewhere non-visible .Heade gasket leaky?
You have a leak somewhere. If you don't see a puddle under the engine then it could be burning it out the exhaust due to a bad head gasket or a cracked head. You really shouldn't be adding straight water unless it is an emergency.
sounds like something in the drive line has come loose or worn out it just may be a bad tire good luck. get some one to fallow you drive it and look for something shaking if you have rear wheel drive its probably a u joint.
When your engine keeps running after shutting it off, you'll hear it firing or coughing.This condition is also known as after-running or dieseling because combustion of the air-fuel mixture happens without the presence of the spark, just like in a diesel engine.
This is condensation and it is normal for that to happen.
All four wheels locking up? Let's see:If they do this when you're not depressing the brake pedal at all, it is likely that the brake fluid has been contaminated with oil. If so, it will be necessary to replace the master cylinder, fluid reservoir cap, all flexible brake hoses, all calipers, all w...
Your exhaust emits white smoke and drops of water even when engine warms up but no loss of coolant or overheating?
If there is no overheating or loss of coolant, most likely it is due to condensation in the exhaust system (pretty normal in cool or rainy weather).
i had a similar problem it could be a low antifreeze level or sticky or stuck open thermostat or partially plugged rad or fan could not be working right if electric or clutch type. either way start with the simple and cheapest first if none of these check your guage.
It is quite a bad occurrence when the two mix and usually means that the gasket has failed to function as required, creating an internal leakage which could easily damage the engine.Some of the reasons why engine oil mixes with the coolant are: A broken/damaged head gasket.
Usually it's because the clearance between the starter drive gear (pinion gear) and the flywheel ring gear is too tight. Many vehicles use shims to increase the clearance (backlash) between the two gears. Also, you did not mention the year make or model of your vehicle, but if it is a 1996 throug...
Some wiring in your door or truck/car may be old or melted and it my be lose.
One or more cylinders is probably not firing. It's like ceiling fan turning 2000 RPM with one blade missing. Check for spark on all your plugs.
Any engine can tick or have a slight knock or ping to it when it is cold. It's pretty normal. As an engine warms up the metal expands. Most of the time it's the valves/valvetrain. Some times it could be a bit of piston slap. Basically, as the valves expand when the engine gets up to temperature, ...
Hi, most cars will over heat if you leave them running and parked, even being stalled in traffic or at the drive-thru will cause this. This happens because the flow of air thru the radiator is reduced. Your cooling fan helps some but a moving car has fresh air passing thru to keep it cool. Also, ...
If the vehicle shakes or the engine shudders a lot when stopped at a stoplight, or when parked with the engine idling, it might indicate the motor mounts or transmission mounts are damaged or broken.If the shaking decreases, it's a strong indicator the engine's motor mounts need to be inspected b...
When engine is cool, Look in radiator and see if the antifreeze is full. Mechanics use more information of problem to diagnose, like, Where is leak at under the car? Air conditioners can cause water drip from car but that is normal. No matter what is causing the drip you will also need to clean/f...
You may have a U joint that is going bad if the roll is just a few inches. If the problem is rolling a fairly long distance or continuous, your emergency brake is shot. You need to get the lines adjusted.Turn your wheels out towards the street,that way the tire will rest against the curb and it w...
My fuel pump leaks water because the fuel pump gasket is bad. The gasket itself is quite reasonable but the labor bill can be stupendous, depending on the make and model of vehicle. Especially newer models with sideways mounting, usually frontwheel drive are the most expensive as many parts have ...
I'm guessing you're talking about the plug for the lights not a battery on a travel trailer. You have a short in the wiring somewhere. Check the trailer harness for a pinched wire of even a bad socket. You will probably blow the fuse in the vehicle if you plug it in and leave it. Use a battery to...
The mass airflow sensor, or MAF sensor, calculates the amount of air that's coming into the engine so that the computer can add the right amount of fuel.A faulty MAF sensor could trigger the check engine light.It can also cause a car to experience impaired gas mileage, increased emissions or freq...
If you run out of gas your car will slowly roll to a stop.Don't worry your won't come to a screeching halt.But you could damage your fuel pump if your run out of gas.fuel pumps are cooled by the flow of gas running through them and it is also submerged in the tank.
If it's a 1.8 with a paper element oil filter....There is a small hole in the throttle body that get blocked up with carbon deposits. This can cause stalling problems.There is a small pipe going to the side of the throttle body (about 10 mm in Diameter) remove this pipe and use a carburettor clea...
I'm not sure My 1993 olds cutlass ceira s does seem to tick constantly as well, kinda from the back side of the motor, could be stuck or bent valve, a worn valve guide, bad lifter, bent push rod, or fuel injector noise all curable with a top end rebuild? a mechanic i know told me to overdose the ...
replace your gas cap first - cheepest try. i had a crack in a vacuum hose that made it keep coming on. You have an emssions problem of some sort. It may be the gas cap and could be many other things. Unless you are knowledgable, take it to a professional if a new gas cap does not fix it. BTW, a l...
The power brake booster has a massive vacuum leak.
Why can't you restart your 97 vortec engine after warming it up and shutting it off. Wont start when warm?
next time it won't restart, try disconnecting temp sensor
Something wrong with the fan motor.If the motor's faulty then a new motor will have to be fitted.Check the engine coolant level.If your engine coolant level is too low, it means that the cooling fan will probably have to work harder to keep the engine at a normal temperature.
Why does your 1970 Ford Maverick keep cranking sometimes even when you take out the key from the ignition?
Sounds liek your ignition switch is bad. Instead of it turning to the off position and disconnecting the electrical power to the coil which kills the engine, yours is staying in the STart or crank position allowing the currect to continue to flow. You may be able to spray some electrical contact ...
sounds as if the shiftlock solenoid has either lost its ability to conduct electricity(fuse,burned out etc.) or possibly a drink(soda,coffee) has spilled onto it so that it cant physically release/activate
Why is your car keep running when you pull the key out of the ignition have a 1990.300zx twin turbo?
This could be 1 of 2 things.You could have a problem with Pre-Ignition - Over run, which can lead to Catastrophic Engine Failure if not resolved quickly.Or...This could just be a Turbo Timer which is designed to keep the engine running after you take out your key for a set amount of time (usually...
The engine is overloaded in case it of generator set or any other load and in case of a car the vehicle is not engage in lower gear as per load and engine rpm.
A short somewhere, insufficient wire thickness causing too much resistance... try upgrading it to a larger gauge wire.
As I remember ^^Because once you start the engine you give it power so it start working, and this power is really so HIGH that your car can start from 0 MPH to 100 MPH or something like this. So for sure it would shake.
it might be because the brake pad is rubbing along something near it. Take off the wheel and see if the cylinder is really close to anything or if u see any major scratches's.
Why is there water leaking out of the bottom of my 93 madza 626 water pump when I just add water with out the engine running?
the hole it is leaking from is their as a warning your water pump is going out . if you don't change it soon it will be a big leak
