Question Asked: Oil in the overflow tank?
January 09, 2011, 11:55 AM
I bought a 98 pickup and it has been sitting for about 6 mos. I checked all the fluids and it had about a 1/2" of oil floating in the overflow cooland tank. The motor runs great and the radiator water doesn't look bad. Where could this have come from? I cleaned out the tank and hope that it won't do it again. Any other ideas? Thanks-K

November 27, 2010, 05:51 AM
I'm replacing the intake gaskets and when I have to put the push rods back is there a best way to torque the rockers? I have an inch pound wrench. Do you just tighten them up or do you have to turn the engine over? I'm a little unsure of this part. Thanks

I'm still trying to get this right. I was wondering if it was a good idea to use a gaket sealer when replacing these gaskets, like form a gasket or rtv? Also if the aluminum is pitted should that be filled with a sealer? thanks for your help!

I've heard that the chevy dealer has a better gasket to replace the old one but Napa told me they called chevy and they have the same one. Does anyone know for sure? Napa has felpro. I don't want to do it again. Thanks-K

Question Answered: alternator problems

On most cars all you have to do is unhook the positive side of the battery when the car is running. If it dies the alternator is not working. If it is not working your battery will just run out of juice, no light, no start.

Most likely it is your hazard switch module which would likely be in the fuse block but I would check the turn signal fuses and hazard fuses first.
Question Answered: Ac system

It sounds like its low of freon. You could get a can and hose at your local part house and put it in yourself and see what happens. It should be a 134a system.
Question Answered: Won't start.

On the fuel pump side of your question, I'd say you have a plugged fuel filter or a bad fuel pump. It should only run a few seconds when you turn the key on. That would make it not want to start. The fan should only run when it's hot so I hope someone else chimes in on that one.

It's pretty easy to test shocks. Just push down on the bumper real hard with both hands or jump on it. When you let go the shocks should stop the movement. If it keeps going up and down even a couple of times the shock need replaced.

Question Answered: Battery or Overheated
October 09, 2010, 07:58 PM
It's hard to say if the two problems are related. I would for sure clean the battery posts first. Then check to see if the cooling fan or fans are comming on. If the temp is above normal the fan should be on. Most of them come on when the AC is turned on also. If its not on there is a problem with the fan. You can spin them to see if they are stuck ( make sure the engine and key is off) You can then check the fuse. Location would be in the owners manual. There is also a thermostat that turns the fan on whitch could be out. If the fan or fans are working you might want to check to see if the radiators are plugged with dirt or bugs. The radiator and condensor can be cleaned with air or water spray nozzel. You should take it in if these things would be hard for you. Hope this helps.

Most of the time you can wiggle them in around the fan. It may take a little bit. You can turn the fan as you go.
