You have a 2000 Nissan Altima that is leaking anti-freeze the radiator was pressue tested and was replaced it is still leaking sitting in the car it is front slightly right What do you think it is?
Usually about $150.00 approx for the part & approx $100.00-120.00 labour depending on where you live.
When water freezes to ice it expands with extreme force. The result will be a cracked block, pushed out freeze plugs, damaged radiator, cracked water pump, heater core, everything cooling system related risks being damaged.
Why is it that in the year 2011 you still don't have a flying car When do you think you will be able to get one?
you don't have a flying car because it would simply be too expensive and it would destroy air control for small planes however in the future car manufacturers will probably invent something that flies low enough but higher than cars and lorries that won't destroy air control.
The engine needs fuel, spark and compression. You are missing one of those.
If 96 Geo metro drivers side front shakes when you drive was told axle baring needed replaced did that it stills shake was told tire rim need replace got them check they replaced tire still shake?
first b sure tire/rim is balanced then i would look at the tie rod or a loose bolt or excess "play" at suspention/steering where they connect to wheel hub or is axle not locked into trans. thoroughly if none help u may have a bent hub assbly. "a frame"hope this helps
Had to replace radiator and at time they told me that i also have a leak coming from my water pump Is there anyway i can check to make sure that is the problem before you start replacing more parts?
The easiest way to see if your pump is leaking is to fill the rad with coolant start the car and physically watch the pump to see if it leaks.
You find out what engine you have (the Blazer name has been in use for a long time, so there's a bit of variety) and you measure fuel pressure to see if it's producing the pressure that it's supposed to. For most 90 degree V engines, it's about 40 PSI.It could be hard starting with extended crank...
Your 1995 Nissan altima hesitates when accelerating and shifting manual transmission people tell me it is the fuel pump but you have no idea did a full tune up and still does it can some one help you?
Check for a sticking or dirty throttle plate, and the IAC or the Idle air control valve.
yes u do have 2 be 13 or older and because u dont want 2 get killed by an air bag.
You will be better off replacing it that trying to repair it.
In special situations, children who are under 6 years of age and less than 60 pounds may ride in the front seat of a motor vehicle in California.For example, children may ride in the front seat when no rear seat is available or the vehicle's rear seats are rear-facing or side-facing jump seats.
While legally in Indiana you can have your child sit in the front seat, never place a child in a rear facing car seat in the front seat with the air bags on.Check the car manual to see if you can turn off the airbags in the front passenger seat if a child under the age of 13 is going to sit there.
Indiana, like many states, does not have any specific laws about children riding in the front seat of a car.While children who weigh at least 30 pounds may use a booster seat in Indiana, state troopers encourage parents to keep their kids in forward-facing car seats until they are at least 40 pou...
umm... not totally sure but i think above 70 lbs.
By law, the PSP states that a child may ride in the front seat after 8 years old / 4'9"/ 80 lbs.; however, the state police strongly recommend that all children under 12 years of age ride in the back seat rather than the front.1
Consider these Ohio laws and suggestions the next time one of your children wants to ride in the front seat.Until children are 4 years old and weigh at least 40 pounds, they must ride in a child safety seat.Children aged 4 through 8 must use a booster seat until they reach the height of 4 feet, 9...
It's not about how tall you are, this is from the NY State Ploice website.New York's Occupant Restraint laws require the following:Children up to the age of 4 must be properly restrained in a federally approved child safety seat that is attached to a vehicle by a seat belt or universal child rest...
I believe it's 49 inches.But you should double check first.
Massachusetts does not have a "front seat law".However Massachusetts Law requires children to ride in child safety seats until they are 5 years old and weigh 40 pounds.
The charging lamp lights up in your 1992 ford explorer you have replaced the alternator and it still isn't charging you also replaced the starter relay and still the system is not charging?
Some Ford models had a external voltage regulator. If yours does, replace it.
If an engine is cooked would it still run and if it was slightly under done what problem would you be getting?
Are you talking about an automobile engine or meat? Are you asking about an engine that overheated? Your question makes no sense. Ask it again and be specific as to what has happened, and any symptoms you are having.
What does it mean when the AC in your 1997 Nissan Altima wont work at all The compressor and clutch has been replaced twice and still no air Please Help?
Blower motor working?Does clutch compressor pull-in?Was system evacuated prior to charging?
Guidelines vary from state to state. In Washington state it is illegal for anyone under the age of 13 to sit in the front seat of a car if a rear seat is available, regardless of height or weight.The issue isn't as much as weight (although part of the equation) as it is height. When airbags first...
You have to be at least 80 to 85 pounds and 5 foot in most states in the USA
Your right front tire is shaking it has already been balanced and aligned There is no nosie no feeling in the steering wheel its the tire that is shaking not when braking slight wobble at low speeds?
The belts of the tire are probably coming apart. Need to replace tire ASAP. Assuming the mechanicals have been checked. Bearing, axle, brakes, etc.
But as Elliott.org points out, there are safer guidelines from SafeKids.org regarding not just weight but height: Kids should be at least 4'9” tall and weigh at least 80 pounds before transitioning out of the booster.The American Academy of Pediatrics says kids between 8 and 12 years of age shoul...
i think you have to ten years old to be able to.
Tall enough to reach to climb into the vehicle.
4 foot 11 inches and to the weight of 50 pounds
The answer is 50% Right 30% Left 20% Middle and this is including car seats
You do not have to replace the PS hoses. Remove the radiator and install a new one.
You changed the radiator and themalstat on your 1996 Hyundai elantra and its still running hot what to do now?
change the radiator cap. Did you check the water pump to see if it is pumping correctly? Did you check the cooling fan for proper operation? Did you bleed all air from the cooling system after adding fresh coolant. Did you install the thermostat correctly, (Spring down)? And lastly, does it possi...
Probably running it through the engine and out the exhaust via a bad head gasket.
If you have a box truck that is cdl rated and you remove the box and make it a flatbed is it still a cdl truck?
This question is a bit asinine, if I can be blunt here. Yes, of course it is. CDL requirements are determined primarily by the weight rating of the vehicle. If it's a tandem truck rated at 54,000 lbs., then that's how its rated, whether it has a box, flatbed, mixer, dump body, etc. If it's a sing...
According to the NYS DMV website, a child CAN sit in the front seat of a car, but its not safe. Especially with airbags in the car. Even check out the website!
Sometimes if the starter is worn out, give it a good whack with a hammer. It may start for you one more time. It's worth a try. If it does start after a love tap you now know the starter is tired, replace it.
You can sit in the front seat at any age, however children must use booster seats until they are 12 or 135cm tall (whichever comes first). Rear facing booster seats should never be used in the front seat.The back seats are much safer so should always be used when possible.
Why do the fluid in the radiator tank goes low and the temp rises to cause the fans to come on and there is fluid still remaining in the reservior tank that does not pull over to refill the radiator?
The system has to be sealed in order to work properly. You have a leak somewhere, could be as simple as a faulty radiator cap. Have the system pressure tested and your leak will show up.
When you got in the car to test drive it the clock was not set right makes you fell like some engine work was done?
There are many reason why the clock may have been set wrong. They may have replaced the battery. They may have replaced fuses. They may have done work that required the battery to be disconnected. Whoever owned the car may not have known how to set the clock. Etc....
Around 1950 you saw a small car that had a propeller in the back bumper area It was said that the car could also be used in water you think it was a Crosley anyone remember or know it?
you have to be at least 10 years to sit in front of a carActually I have read that you have to be 12 years of age to sit in the front seat of a car due to the airbag. Well, I actually don't live in OR so the person who said 10 may be correct, 12 is just the age in my state.
depends on the car, typically just the valve cover gasket though

You have a 99 Nissan maxima and when the car is put in park or drive it shakes and the power doesnt seem to be there when you excelerate we think it might be the egr or knock sensor?
Sounds a little fishy to me. Do you have a check engine light on? If so check for codes. Otherwise, check for dirty throttle body or bad powertrain mount. Oh, park... forget the mount. Dirty throttly body or bad IAC are mos likely. Just possibly as bad spark plug. You aren't using regular gas in ...
11 but if you are 130cm s you can sit in the front without a booster seat :)
Why is your 1992 Oldsmobile cutlass supreme still overheating when you have changed the water pump thermostat and radiator cap?
Although I deal exclusively with automotive air conditioning, my work takes me into the realm of engine cooling because of its (profound) effect on the A/C system. Have you checked the electric cooling fan to see if it is operational? Aside from coming on when the A/C in operating, the fan should...
How do you charge refrigerant blends you were told that if your system has a leak that you have to recover all the freon fix the leak and recharge it with newunused refrigerant?
That is only partially true. Legally you must repair the leak before adding refrigerant. You do not have to remove the Freon and recharge it with fresh Freon. However, this is what I would do if it were my car. I am assuming this is a 1996 or older vehicle which contains Freon (R12). I would have...
About four week ago you replaced an old battery that was leaking acid Now your new battery is leaking acid is it just a bad battery or could something else be causing the new battery to leak?
Leaking from where on the battery, the caps? If so the charging system may be over charging the battery and causing the acid to boil out. Could be a voltage regulator problem.
My 1995 Mazda millenia is making a grinding as I increase the speed the noise increases Sounds as is coming from the front right side. I had the brakes an rotors replaced and it still hasn't went?
Brake calipers will sometimes not pull back from the rotors as they should and will make noise as the brake shoes literally rub the rotors continuously. This can happen even after changing both brakes and rotors. The contact points where the brake shoes slide back and forth on the caliper should ...
You washed the engine because it has an oil leak you think its the valve cover gaskets but now the check engine is on it was missing but you ran it and it cleared up but the engine lite is still on?
The "check engine" light comes on when a code is tripped in the computer. Even after the problem is corrected the light will remain on for either a specified amount of time operating properly or a specified number of miles without problem. If you wish to reset the computer (thus clearing the code...
Thinking about buying 2000 Ford Taurus se 148000 miles i drove it and it cut off the owner says it needs a TPS also the gas gauge does not work and the check engine light is on why is that?
Stop thinking and start walking - away from this car. Don't you think that if this was an easy fix, the present owner would fix it.
1989 Toyota Corolla SR5 sport coupe and it is leaking antifreeze under the bottom in front of the engine?
There are a few things that can cause a coolant leak but in your case it is probably the water pump. When a water pump starts to go bad it will leak coolant from the bottom.
When a curb was hit and bent one of the front tire rims It was replaced because it was really damaged the car is shaking now could another rim have been damaged without noticing?
Yes, you should check all of the rims and while you're at it, recheck the one that was just replaced. You might also have a bent axle shaft. Check that the new wheel was balanced when installed. Check alignment and other front end parts for possible damage if the curb strike was very hard. You ma...
Your ac heater and defrost in your 2000 montero stop working when a fuse was replaced it kept blowing the fuse what is the problem?

Why would the radiator cooling fan not turn on when the engine gets hot in a 1988 Nissan Sentra 1.6 the sensor and main relay have been replaced and the fan is good?
Check thermostat, if stat not working it wont be circulating the water past the sensor to bring fan on. Is one of the coolant hoses cold even when it overheats? Hope this helps
How come school buses do not have seat belts for the children. Do you think that it is a safety issue?
Well, i think that school busses don't have seat belts because the school trusts the bus driver to be safe. Also, the bus driver expects the children to stay in their seats. But some buses do have seat belts, and I bet thoes shools are very safe. Yes, I do think it is a safety issue because there...
It is located on top and inside the fuel tank. There may be an access panel inside the car right above the fuel tank which will give you access to the fuel pump. If not, then you will have to drop the fuel tank out of the car in order to replace the fuel pump.
You just have to find the right installer. For me that is why I ended up in this career because I didn't want some hack touching my Supra. If at all possible look at the installer in questions car and see if you like the work he did to his own car. Or ask to see some prior work. Check out the12vo...
Is it mandatory to register an uninsured vehicle sitting in a driveway and how long do you have to register it after purchase in New York?
New York State law states that any vehicle that is operated on the roadways of NY must be registered. It does not appear to be required if it is not being driven. Given that, the time frame is you must register it before you can drive it anywhere. I also know that some counties and cities have la...
Is there a way you can find the size and year of a motor you think it was installed in the late 60's early 70's?
if this is a GM motor there is a casting number on the top of the block behind the drivers side head,it is visible while the motor is installed on most vehicles,then all you need is a GM casting number book available at most automotive stores which also lists all engine component casting numbers ...
Why do your car keep dying after you turn it off you put a new battery in and its still dies out when you turn it off and let it sit about 30 mins?
It's entirely possible that your alternator or some other part of your charging system has gone bad. It could be as simple as a bad ground, a bad solenoid in the alternator, or as annoying as needing to replace everything.Unless you have a really strange or unusual/rare vehicle, it should cost no...

2004 Yamaha Blaster and it burning trans gear oil you were told to replace the crankshaft seal so that's what you did but its still doing it can anyone tell you whats going on THANKS?
there is a wall between your trans part and your bottom end where ur crank is. If it is not leaking out of the outer case, then i dont know because it wont be getting past the wall unless it has a hole in the wall... and u will know if that has happened.
I would check front crankshaft seal or timing cover gasket. The Crank pulley might be "throwing" oil on to the belts and Alternator.
Use a gas tank sealer. I've used it. Rough up the surrounding ( 2 inches) area with coarse sandpaper. At the auto store buy the gas tank sealer putty. It's a stick of 2 epoxy compounds. Cut off a piece, knead it together to mix the two parts of epoxy and press it on the length of the crack. Let ...
NO. the child must way 90 pounds
Ive installed a cold air intake in your car and now it wont run right all it does is sit there and idles really rough What could you have done to cause this problem?
When did you install a cold air intake in my car and why? I don't know what I could have done to cause the problem since I did not install it. The problem is you have messed up the fuel-air ratio somehow.
In a 1994 probe and its raining and you have a cold air intake and you hit a puddle of water and your car died do you think there is water in your engine?
How big was the puddle. If u dont have a bypass valve then yes u have water in your engine
You have a 93 ford probe and was wondering if you could jack the car up and drop the engine down and change it that way?
Sure, I currently have the tranny out of my 95 GT and all that is keeping the engine from falling to the ground is the right side engine mount and a support brace I installed across the strut towers. Understand however that you would need to lift the bottom of the "bumper" up about 3.5 to 4ft giv...
If its not the alternator that's bad what is it i have changed the alternator but the lights and everything are still blinking?
You need to check and make sure the alternator is charging. You could have gotten a defective one or if you got a used one it may be bad. Get a digital multimeter and with the vehicle off check the voltage at the battery. Should be 12+ volts with a charged battery. Start the vehicle and check the...
If your vehicle is being sold at a "Public" auction where anyone can go in and bid - then yes you can bid and/or buy your vehicle.

What do you do when you stop making payments on a car and you've asked the car company multiple times to pick it up haven't paid them in over a year but the car's still sitting in the driveway?
The car company is not who you should be speaking to. The lender who loaned you the money to purchase the car is the lien holder and the entity that actually owns the car. That is who you need to contact. Something is not right here. Normally the lender would not hesitate to repossess the car whe...
Your 2000 elantra has done 160k and just this week the water in the radiator has started boiling and the temperature is almost hitting red can it be the thermostate the radiator or the head gasket?
I would start at the thermostat. Problems with the radiator and head gaskets are usually presented as visual leaks. But clogged passages in the radiator would also cause overheating issues, so have the cooling system flushed.
If your car will not start and you notice a belt on the ground near the right front tire is that the alternator belt?
Very possibly. If the alternator is locked up (shot) it will burn the belt off of it in seconds. If the alternator has no belt on it chances are this is why. I hope this helps you. Mark

What is the best thing to do if you accidentally put a small amount (A splash maybe 100ml) of anti freeze in the oil. Dummy I know but what and the best thing to do?
Antifreeze and moving/rotating engine parts don't get along well. I would do an oil and filter change immediately then followed by another oil and filter change after 100 miles. After that I would keep an eye on the engine oil dipstick looking for any traces of antifreeze showing up then change t...

Your Mazda B2500 overheated you replaced the radiator but the coolant will not enter the block and the engine just heads for the red when you have to shut it off It seems as if it could be air-locked?
It is possible that it is air locked. Try squeezing the upper and lower hoses to release any air and make sure the radiator is full, sometimes jacking up the front helps. It could also be a bad thermostat so replace that if you have not done so already.
If a diagnostic test was done and determined that you need an engine why do they have to do an engine break down to determine whats wrong with it?
Because, while the engine as a whole may be bad, there will be some part of the engine that could be repaired or replaced to make the engine work again.
If a 97 cadillac deville wit new radiator leaks water a lot and has to be filled after short distances or it overheats What is wrong with it does the water pump need replacing or just hoses and how?
You need to determine exactly where the coolant is leaking from before you can make repairs. Use a small mirror and a good flashlight and probe around until you find it.

Should the dealer that sold you a brand new truck that has transmission problems in the first 3 days have to replace it with a new one?
He as a right to try to fix it first, before you can insist on a new car.Why? He shouldn't be able to sell it in the first place if it has problems.

Wow, there's a significant difference in value of the vehicle's purchase price. Have you spoken to the dealership? You need to speak to the General Manager of the dealership. Or the bank that financed the car? If the dealer hasn't been helpful, go to the bank. They're going to want to straighten ...
