Then all of a sudden I get in to go get an oil change for the fist time owing this car it all of a sudden over heats I have been adding coolant as it runs out but there are no signs of leakage when parked ... What could be the issue b4 I get to the repair shop and they try and give me the run around on things ... Help please ...

While driving the coolant light lit yellow and then it was gone and there was a few engine small cut while driving and then gone again.

the service light is on in my car the code is po705. how do I fix this. where is the switch located. can I do this my self

there is water in the cooling system\ but the car is not running hot what is the cause

All of the coolant came out of the car

what are codes 1188 1189 P0173 and 0170

my cooling fan light keeps coming on and off. And sometimes the temperature hand passed normal and hit red. And now i can hear a whistling sound in the back of my car. It's scary!!! I took it in to do a full body check but the guy at the gas station just put water in my car and that was it. Nothing was solved. I dont know what to do because im trying to avoid going to a mechanic cus last time I went, I spend almost a thousand dollars :(

Cooling fan isn't working. Car is not overheating I think because it's not warm enough outside. The problem started back in October and I noticed the car getting too warm and so I turned on the heater which brought the temperature back down to normal. Why would the fan stop working and what will it cost to fix it.

where can i find a manual explaning how to replace it? Thanks in advance.

Just replaced the radiator and filled with fresh coolant bleed the system a few times and there is no heat. The blower motor works fine and pushed good air just not hot air. the A/C is fine and cold. No heat.

radio works then it does not. Checked fuses in stero and fuse box . Soped working and I do not know why. This car has 6 cd changer and nav.
Is there a relay for this stero or amp? Is the computer keepin it from working because I am changing speakers.

Anytime I shift I am getting this thumping noise. When the car is idle and I move the gear shifter I can hear this thump like something is loose. The car is a 5 speed manual transmission. This thumping sound only happens when I shift.
