My check engine light has been on. I have to keep putting antifreeze in. But two days ago I shut my car off and it bubbled and shot all the antifreeze out the reservoir. So I put a new thermostat in. It ran good for a boutique 2 hours. Then all the sudden i heard a little pop and the boiling started again. All my antifreeze blew out again.

consistant

when the car is on motion, after may be 5 to 10 minutes of driving, the engine stops immediately, trying to start becomes difficult. when the car eventually starts, movement is slow,climbing the smallest hill is difficult. i have changed fuel pump but no way out. if the car is parked for may be an hour or two, it will start again and move for another 5 to 10 minutes before it happens again. during this process, the car shakes and throttling is slow. please repair pal what do you think is the problem. Thanks.

Would prefer to only use certified parts.

The starter and battery have been replaced. We thought it was a bad key but still have problems with another key.It makes a click but nothing happens. The positive terminal will get very hot. A few minutes later when tried it will start right up.

Last week my car would not start. I jiggled battery cables and got it to start. Went to an auto parts store and they installed a battery and tightened everything. Today it happened again. No lights, no electrical, nothing. I raised the hood and found the battery clamp down loose and checked the battery connectors for still being tight. I heard the door open alarm going off and started the car. Really hurting as this has 224,000 miles on it and my newer car is in the body shop for two weeks. Help!
