Your car overheated and the coolant leaked out of the overflow bottle. It happened a couple of times with my Opel Astra Coupe and my Subaru Forester too. If you're really lucky, nothing major is wrong with your car, but I'd advise a compression test just to be safe. The danger here is that BECAUSE the car overheated and all the coolant was lost, you may have ...

The screech is from the tension on the belt being too low. Usually it's a worn belt or the pump slipping. On my 2002 civic I am pretty sure the power steering belt was separate from the serpentine and that the pump is also acting as a tensioner. For the leak, check the connections to and from the pump. There should be an o-ring underneath the connector on ...

According to the 2000 CR-V service manual, under the pressure-test conditions (86 °C, 70 % RH): the low-side pressure should be around 43 psi (compared to 32 psi) the high-side pressure should be around 320 psi (compared to 150 psi) Possible scenarios It seems that there are one or two factors at play here: There is insufficient refrigerant in the ...

While it is not imperative that it is completely flush together, it will make a difference. You will have a leak possibility there. This is the reason you replaced the weather stripping in the first place. What you need to do is stretch the weather stripping down on both sides so it will come together in the middle. If you start at dead center on the top ...

I would never ignore a worn tie rod; you could be driving down the road, hit a serious bump, and suddenly lose your ability to steer in a straight line, or worse. If you have the the tie rod replaced, I doubt that any reputable mechanic would tackle that without also repairing the power steering rack. I personally would never ignore any kind of steering ...

It sounds like the root cause of your woes is a battery that is not getting properly charged at lower speeds. Assuming this is a 14 V charging system, the battery voltage should be close to 14 V while the bike is running. If it isn't, the battery will deplete and affect components that rely on it like the fuel injectors and coils, which would go quite some ...

I hate dealing with adding aftermarket parts and dealing with sizes. Here's the replacement Duralast Coolant Temperature Sensor for your vehicle and engine. In the description, it says it's thread is M12 x 1.5 Thread. The ValuCraft brand version agrees about the size. Good luck!

To me that sounds like your torque converter unlocking but your transmission not downshifting. Automatic transmissions have a torque converter in place of a clutch. The way that the torque converter works is by using turbines and stators which get spun using the transmission fluid. This process creates an enormous amount of heat and has the effect of making ...

I am thinking an issue with the battery cables. Likely the ground cable. Follow it and see if it breaks anywhere. Get a multimeter. Measure the voltage between the battery terminals, then between an unpainted part of the body or the engine and the positive terminal. If the voltage is about the same, your ground is good. If the voltage is 0, you have ...

While the HVAC system paths will vary greatly between cars, try these first: If the items are metal or contain metal, use an extendable magnet to reach straight in, or if it is further in then use a magnet tied to a string or dental floss. You can use a long hook (used in dentistry) to reach in and hopefully loop the item, or again attach it to a ...

I question was that will my motor be damaged easily. I discovered that I Make 67 kw on the wheel at the moment but if I put a T3/T4 turbo on the motor and Software, I will ...
