i noticed then that the radiator coolant was okay. the very next day the upon rechecking the engine oil - now okay - but the radiator coolant holder/container was now totally empty !

please what is happening ?

Chokes/coughes. Spews white smoke out tail pipe. Wont hold an idle. Brake lights, ABS lights, coolant lites and airbag lites on but nothing wrong w breaks. How much is this gonna cost me and whats wrong w my car?

We finally tried pumping the gas pedal and it almost started but then misfired (loud pop under the hood). When the key is turned part way there's a high-pitched whirring noise.

was able to hold 40 mph then steadily dropped to 0mph. Now runs loud an dont know what else to look at. Took out the part on the bottom an got all the honeycomb stuff out an that didnt fix anything. HELP I NEED TO KNOW WHAT TO LOOK INTO ON IT AN HOW TO SEE IF ANY OTHER PART IS BAD!!!

Sometimes I may have to turn key 10+ times (no sound at all) until it catches. Colder weather seems to make it worse. Ignition cylinder has some play in it. Starter or Ignition cylinder or ???

my 2002 mazda tribute runs hot after 10 min of idling. I don't see any signs of leaks the fan comes on but when it comes On it runs constantly, my heat blows out cold air while running. Can someone please help me figure out what's going on?

Did same thing years ago. Had car towed. At dealership they said key simply pulled out for them. Have tried wiggling steering wheel to no avail. Is it a time factor for security or did the tow itself do something? What can we do?

If I hotwire the starter it makes a spinning sound but will not engage. I swapped the relays around but no luck there. All fuses look good unless I missed one. ????? It was driving fine. Just parked it and that was it.

On a scale of 1 to 10 (ten being the hardest), what's the level of difficulty on this job? (I have some auto repair skills...not intimidated by most repairs.) Thank you!

Just wondering if replacing fuses would fix it. I noticed that many of the fuses control a couple of different things so Im not sure which fuses I would need to get to fix these problems if that is even the fix.

brake boost is also hising are the too tied together

is the cost I should pay and any recommendations in SLC, UT market for repair

Initially sounds like #4 & #6 cylinders fire on start up after that its like they aren't receiving fuel. The injectors tested ok and we visually checked them with the intake manifold off and they do receive an initial spray of fuel. The coils & plugs tested ok with a strong spark. When we disconnect cylinder #5 we notice an immediate drop in the engine and a backfire from the fuel. When we do this on 4 & 6 there is no change in the engine,no backfire and the plugs are not wet. We've reset the PCM with no change, the fuel filter is new, all plugs are new, all coils were checked, all injectors were checked, all connectors were checked. as far as I can tell the way the wiring harness is made you can't misconnect #4 & #6 connectors.

with it. I need to know if it will be worth my money to buy and fix or leave alone.

Will not stay running unless I hold the key in the starting position then it's trying to run but when you let the key go it sometimes runs and then sometimes dont
