after driving home from work tried to shift to park. could not shift. never had a problem before this
It used to be I'd turn the key and the lights and radio would come on, but the car wouldnt start. I'd have to hit the brake a couple times itd make a hissing noise and then itd turn on. It never ticked though. Sometimes i would get out and wiggle the wires connected to the battery and itd start. I left it parked for a couple of days them when i went to start it it wouldnt start and my light on the inside ceiling way very dim and it made a hissing noise like it normally does but woudnt start. i kept messing with it until it completely was dead.. i took the two cords (black and red one connected to the battery) and wiped them down and hooked them back up.. still nothing. then i tried to jump it and nothing, no lights or the hissing noise :( any advice or answers would be helpful! thanks

My low radiator fluid icon has recently come on a few seconds after the car has been driven a bit and I wanted to know what you recommend.

About 2- 3 years ago the resevoir was replaced because it was cracked even though the light never came on I think.

System was flushed and filled.

I have 149, 000 miles on my car.

Should I take it in for service or just check level myself??
It has a loud click, click sound from the dashboard. I googled the symptoms and I was told it was the actuator.
And my car isn't running hot what could it be and is it safe to drive and for how long?
