I am afraid of the coolant coming out. I want to replace the hose today but just wanted try and keep the coolant from coming out until I get to the mechanic as it is a 15 minute drive to get to the shop.

Question Asked: 

I have a 15 minute drive to my mechanic and I don't want to have coolant all over the place and cause more havoc. Just want to know if there is any product or sealant reliable enough to hold this small slit until I can get to the mechanic shop.

I just started hearing a whistling sound while driving but the sound stops when brakes are applied. Could there be something wrong with my brakes?

Question Asked: 

Upon turning the ignition on this morning, the car didn't start as fast as usual. There was like a 1 second hesitation before the engine turned completely over. I also noticed that the clock was off by 3 hours. There were two more hesitant starts today as well. I reset the clock after I started the car the second time but noticed that when I returned to the car and started it for the 3rd time that the clock was back to 12:00 again. Once I got home and turned off the engine, I tried to restart immediately but it wouldn't start and was almost dead.I waited a few seconds and retried but no start. I retried once again after about 2 or 3 minutes and it made sounds but wouldn't turn over. I hooked up the battery charger and it started right away after about 5 minutes. However, after at least 45 minutes on the charger, there's still some hesitation. There's an initial start up sound then there's a one second hestation before completely turning over. The radio, wipers, and lights are strong. Could this be an alternator problem? What other deficits could there be?

Question Asked: 

Hi, I am experiencing some vibration in the front wheels when I am coming to a stop. Mostly when I am traveling at a higher rate of speed ( like exiting the freeway[as I am slowing down]) My brakes are good could the problem be the rotors?

Question Asked: 

If my car makes a squealing noise when I brake, is it reasonable to say that I may need brake pads. There's no dragging sounds just the squealing.
