HERE IS A GREAT SITE THAT WILL HELP YOU FIND OUT What is wrong with your car :

It seems like it would make much more sense to keep our cars working if we knew what was wrong in the first place. Plus, when we ask for help with our cars , we can be alot more informed about telling someone else what we thing is wrong. This helps keep us from getting any extra money taken from us for 'extra services" that might be tacked onto our bills.




More ideas and great tutorials that show you ideas for might be wrong with your car and then how to repair it  :

just a thought, have you checked or had someone check all the hoses to make sure there are no leaks? My condensation hose had competely come off causing my car to overheat also could be something as simple as a stuck can lock in the closed position and keep antifreeze from getting to the radiator..heres how you check, feel the upper part of your radiator hose, once the engine heats up the hose should become warm if it doesnt get hot, the thermostat probably isnt opening up(or you can have someone check this for you)...also you can have a small leak somewhere, you would probably have noticed this by seeing the greenish puddles when you park..even if there is no noticable leak, a mechanic can do a pressure test to find even the tinest leak..My brother is a mechanic..he also told me that a faulty water pump will make your car overheat quickly that the car wont run more than four or five minutes without overheating so this also could be your problem..Other than those reasons, you can try checking for a bad cooling fan or clogged radiator... I hope this helps..

hi, Did you also check the fluids in rad. Sure your rad can be ok but what about prestone antifreeze. To find out for certain that it is not the thermostat usually can take out put in boiling hot water and if it opens up then you know it is still good but if it does not open than need new thermostat. just make sure your fluids are topped in vehicle.

 in response to jrr...   My name is Kirsten. My family situation is bad, currently. My mother has been sick for the past 7 years, and she gets one Social Security check on the first of the month. We used to have the added income of my step-dad working, but he moved out and now my mom and I have to live on her one check. We don't have a car, so we have to rely on neighbors to take us to the store, but lately that's not been enough. We can't rely on them forever. I graduated from high school this year, and I need to get a job to bring in more income, since I was recently put on probation. The added cost of that is making it impossible for us to save money for a vehicle of our own. We live out in Pleasant Valley, far from the inner city, and since we don't have a car my job opportunities are slim to none. I was wondering if there was any way you could possibly help us out, it would be very much appreciated. If you have any information for me please contact me at or 806-383-4984.
