    Why won't my car start until the temp gauge reads cool after it warms up
    My car will start fine and runs fine, when the temp gauge reaches the normal spot just below 1/2 and u turn engine off it will start again immediately, but if u wait literally 1 minute it will not start again until the temp gauge reads Cool.

      Ever think when the coolant was gone it was time to park it & find out why?

      I would guess it is going out the exhaust from a failed head gasket IF you
      do not see the coolant on the ground

    There is a large amount of oil on top of and around the driver side valve cover head.
    I have a 1999 3.6l 300m. There is a large amount of oil on and around the driver side valve cover head. First thought was a bad gasket, but the whole top of the head is covered with oil. If it was the gasket I would think there would be one or two places where ...

      If you think the gasket is an issue, replace it. Also, check crankcase pressure system/pcv. If too much pressure in the crankcase it can force oil out anywhere and everywhere.

      With a warmed up engine at idle, can you check blow-by?

      Thanks. I think you're right that it is a PCV issue causing the engine to vent into the engine compartment. Even some cables between the expansion tank and manifold have oil on them. I'm sure there is blowby due to the car’s age, but a ring job is too expensive for what the car is worth. I looked at the PCV hose and it appears to be kinked and has oil on it. Strange thing is it is on opposite side of block as is the oil fill. I'm trying to find source, but will replace valve and hose to start.
