I took as much as possible out with a syringe and added more oil. will the car be OK?
While driving,everything fine then suddenly and without prior problems, lost power. Pulled over checked under the hood. No smoking, no leaking of anything and serpentine belt was fine. Replaced radiator two months ago. Had one head gasket seal replaced year and a half ago. It could be a number of things since we haven"t done a whole lot of major maintenance on the vehicle.Original tranny fluid too. It has regular oil changes and is in great condition considering her age.
It came on same time the car overheated. Car towed an new radiator install. Light was off when I picked up car, 10 miles and lights came back on. Not sure why happend at the same time bu a separate problem fixed now? Heard it may be a sensor or catalytic converter.
A couple years ago my button to release the gas cap opening stopped working and I have had to use my car keys to open this. There have been times when it does pop open but this is very rare. Why would this be happening?
My tire light comes on now and again. The first time this happened it was obvious that one of my tires was low on air. But lately this tire late has been coming on and all 4 tires have the perfect amount of air pressure in them. Why is this?
Sometimes when I make a sharp turn my car makes this loud clunking sound. This also can happens at times when I brake. It doesn't happen all the time. Doesn't seem to make a difference what the weather is either.
The electrical seat adjuster was jammed for the first time this morning on the right side on the passenger side.

My car clicks like it is full and it only has $1.75 and it clicks at least 10 more times until it is full.
My Outback overheats after driving for a few minutes. I have changed the thermostat and radiator cap and it still does it. It can idle for an hour, and not overheat, but drive it for 5 or 6 miles and it jumps to hot!
Where or how do i track down electrical, or wire issues. Mechanically it works, just no signal ? Where do i start? Is there a main electrical unit?
And on my dash, the check engine, brake light, cruise control, and anti swerve light all on. Caliper been inspected and is functions
When backing out of garage, the gears grind. Service manager states that exact sequence when pulling in and parking must be followed: 1- foot brake, 2-put in park, 3, engage parking brake, 4- turn off engine. This works, but it seems ridiculous. This car also has a hesitation in changing from reverse to drive. Do I have a lemon?
