I was driving and noticed temp was on red, immediately pulled over, and shot the engine. Steam was coming out , and noticed the coolant hose was disconnected from air intake valve. I towed the car home, and next day connected the hose, added coolant, and checked for any visible issues, and found none. The engine cranks, but she won't start. How can I troubleshoot?
Also when I press the gas all the way to the floor it won't idle up.My radio,heat,or lights are not working either.
The AC has always been ice cold. However, all of a sudden it blows warm air. It went from fine to not fine. Does it need a recharge or does the rudeness mean it's the compressor. Any way to check.
Ran fine for 20 miles then went back to low idle and sputtering at idle and when driving on hwy idle drops a bit then back up every few miles
Why is that and how do i get it fixed? I can get into the car, lights come on but the car won't start and it ran perfectly before keys got locked in the car. Thank you so much!
the sensor light started staying on, non-crash related, dealer says sensor needs replacing, wants $600, even though 1997 ES300 worth about $2000, I think dealer is blowing smoke, wouldn't tell me what trouble codes were...
I went to work came back parked it in front of the house and a couple hrs later went to go to the store and it wouldn't turn over had no power to start tried jumping it(had the cables wrong first think that why the alt fuse blown out ) and wouldn't start checked fuses all were good but alt fuse replaced it got power to the car would turn over but wouldnt start, had battery checked and charged and alternator checked and all came out good I don't know what to do called a couple places and they said it would be $90 just to find the problem not even fix it or anything, need help plz

I have 0135 code 0141 I replaced bank 1 sensor 1 and that's when the 141 showed up, but the 135 didn't go away. I need some info on what to do.
I do see a slight oil film around the gaskets. Can I wait before spending money?
Took to shop had headlight replaced cost $141. After pull out of drive noticed check engine soon light is on. Husband is livid. Please help....also passenger side heat doesn't work just blows cold are when heat is on.
I was told it sounds like a valve gone bad. What do you believe is the diagnosis?
When you change one ignition coil do you post replace all off them At the same time and will put one good one in will it send the code for a camshaft sensor before changed out the coil it want saying nothing about camshaft till I replaced coil
Every day, when car is cold I notice that anytime foot is off gas (decelerating), in the engine there is a sound like a deck of cards shuffling (tongue to roof of mouth blow air from throat vibrating sound). Infrequent lurching when coming to a stop, but no other issues, just different and annoying. Seem to notice more at lower speeds, but probably because I am not giving the car gas, but could just be my hearing. Will it get worse? Something I need to deal with? I was told transmission... not entirely convinced, but won't know unless they pull it all apart and charge me for it. Wanted to check here first~ thank you!
Cant get more than 35 mph,
it moves. When I come to a junction and stops and try to take off it does not move or some times I have to wait for the engine to heat up to at least 10 to 15 minutes before the vehicle can move. Is there a problem with the transmission or sensors that causing this problem?
I checked the engine oil for signs of coolant, but the oil does not look contaminated. I also don't see any smoke coming from the tailpipe. What could it be?
My car started regular one morning, drove a block or two & engine began a slow stall in drive gear. Turned to head back home and would go forward in drive without rpms revving up to red. Never happened before, this was sudden. put the car in all gears & it wont go at all. Thank you
