Just started doing it all of a sudden, when I tried to stop at a stop sign. no brake service light came on, what could the problem be? Air in the line, caused from a leak? I checked the fluid level, and it was a bit low, I topped it off and pumped the brakes; still spongy and pedal is soft.
I've recently had the same problem with my 2008 Saturn Sky Redline. Took it to two different mechanics. Checked thermostat and check water pump. Turns out there is a technical service bulletin out for the two check valves for its cooling system. The two valves are there to remove air bubbles from interrupting the flow of coolant in the engine. When they fail, the car will run hot while driving, but will decrease in temperature when stopped. Also the heater will blow only cold air. These are both telltale signs to replace the check valves. As I understand it they are cheap and easy to fix. Hope this helps!
I am trying to replace the water pump on my 2008 saturn sky redline. I know I need a water pump socket to replace it, but is there any other tool I need to complete the job? Like any kind of bracket to hold the timing chain in the correct position or anything??
The car is a 1980 BMW 528i with a 6 cyl. engine. The white smoke only seems to come out when i rev the engine, not during normal driving. It also has a manual transmission.
