Question Answered: My engine keeps running hot what could be wrong with it
May 27, 2009, 07:39 PM
If it keeps running hot make sure you have enough antifrize and bleed the cooling system. Another possibility the radiator cap is not holding pressure. Other possible causes: Clogged radiator, Bad water pump, Thermostat is stuck closed. The worst case scenario it could be a head gasket. http://www.TRANSARTNC.com

You just have to open the hood (engine running) and listen for vacuum leaks such as suction noise, usually when you have both banks lean it has to be a vacuum leak after mass airflow sensor. http://www.TRANSARTNC.com

If the check engine light is on it has to have a Diagnostic trouble Code (DTC), so in order to be able to help you I need to know the code, which is 4 digits starting with the letter P and the dealer should give it to you. By saying all power lost what exactly do you mean (power as electrical or drivability)? http://www.TRANSARTNC.com
Question Answered: timing belt replacement
May 26, 2009, 08:10 PM
In your case it might be rigt to change the timing belt as there was a recall on Timing Belt Auto-Tensioner, but you should not change it just because your car is old and when the timing belt has only 27.000 on it. You can simply check the timing belt by removing couple plastics from the engine and you will be able to see if it has any cracks or oil signs on the belt itself. http://www.TRANSARTNC.com

It is never good to delay or skip the service intervals, but in your case just change engine oil and the oil filter and you are good to go. For your car model and year I would recommend to see a professional technician for oil change (deealership or a known technician)Yoy are gonna need 8 Quartz of Mobil 1 synthetic 5W-40 oil. http://www.TRANSARTNC.com

TCS- stands for Traction Control System. If you have this light on you should take your car to a mechanic and get your car scanned (electronic diagnostic) to find out what is the problem. It could also mean ABS (Anti-lock brake system)problems as they go together. http://www.TRANSARTNC.com

Question Answered: No power after changing battery
May 18, 2009, 07:30 PM
It sounds like the battery terminals are not connected properly. Battery voltage is very important it should be 12.6 V across the terminals. To determine the problem correctly I would need more information. Feel free to call me for a free consultation at 704-393-1177 and ask for Arthur. http://www.transartnc.com
