The car barely overheated but when I refilled the radiator it didn't last long before it was empty again. The car is not knocking and is running fine. The garage said it's a blown head gasket and the cars not worth putting that much money into. My question is would some blue devil sealant even be worth a shot or is the car beyond that now? Any help would be greatly appreciated as I'm stranded 18 hours from home

I was sitting in traffic and all of a sudden my car started smoking but temp. didn't register hot. I pulled over and all my coolant was leaking out. All of it. My friend said it's a freeze plug but why would it blow all of a sudden?

hadnt had any problem untill 3 days ago . it sounded like battery dragging then started making clicking noise then starts like battery dragging then slowly starts any clue?

there is very little heat iin the drivers area

start the car anti freeze light comes on it is full and takes a long time to get heat in the car is it just a sensor or something else causing the problem

is it just a sensor problem or something else takes a long time to get heat in the car

car has to be push started but once the engine is run for a while i am able to turn the car back on with just the key. what would cause this?

This car ran fine before it was ran out of gas, it will start but it sounds like it is miss firing and will die out even if the gas pedal is held to the floor. I have replaced the fuel filter but am unsure where to look next. Any advice would be appreciated.

The car stalls at idle and heavy breaking.

my car won't start unless it is push started (manual transmission) I was told that it is not the starter. at one time i had to replace the valve cover gasket because oil was leaking in. don't know if its related or how to start the car without push starting it

when i crank my car it smokes white smoke.

Engine has 113k miles and I don't believe plugs have ever been changed. I want to pull them and check the gap. If new ones are warranted, then, of course I will replace them. I don't have the owner's manual.

where is my starter located

There is not problem it is just that a Saturn dealer said that I needed the thermostat replaced. There has been no problem with heating or the car running.
