Wire is from alternator to starter terminal,red wire.

Our PT cruiser was running hot. We took it to a garage & we had to have the radiator replaced. A few days after the radiator was replaced, my husband attempted to check the oil & found that the dipstick was broken. Could that have occurred when the radiator was replaced? The garage said that couldn't have happened since the radiator was pulled from below.

my vehicle has been having issues with the steering and handling for about the last 6 months.It' hard to keep it from being "all over the place" especially with freeway driving.

I only drove it across the street. After I washed my car went to start it up and it turned over for 2 seconds then stopped. Did that about 3 times then opened the hood. Checked the fluids and saw there was no water. Noticed everything was hot. Shut it off , filled it with water and it still won't turn over. Everything lights up but I can't start it. I am waiting a couple of hours to let it completely cool down. Could it be in limp mode?

up again automatically if I put more oil in it or do I need to bring it to a mechanic?

Charge battery and fan kicks on immediately when battery is reconnected and before key is in ignition.

Over heating,while idling.Fan doesn't come on.

Get in to start it and the check engine light will flash10 times I start it and the light goes off...

My check engine light came on and I have had 3 different work on car & add parts. The problem boils down to this. Every morning car has to be jumped off to get it started. It runs fine & starts the rest of day. So everything has been checked over & some parts have been changed. Now they are saying the computer in car is not working correctly. I will gladly take it to somewhere that can fix it but don't know where to go. Probably the closest place is Nashville , Tn. Please help. This car has run perfectly for 12 years & I had kept the maintenance up always.

Doors are closed but sensor beeping

It starts when it's cold, but after I run it for a while and shut it off, doesn't always start it just cranks over, but if I wait a few minutes it will start. I already replace the crankshaft sensor.
