    DO I HAVE PRESSURIZED OVERFLOW TANK?
    LOSSING A SMALL AMOUNT OF COOLANT BUT NOT NOTICEABKE ON GROUND
     
    • Jimm

      Yes, the overflow tank is pressurized - only slightly and only when coolant flows back into from the cooling system.
      Check the coolant level, as the coolant heats up, the sensor is turned off.

      If the coolant is low...
      Perform a cooling system / radiator pressure test when the engine is cold - as a first step to locate the leak.
      Obtain a loaner tool / free radiator pressure tester from the local auto parts stores such as Autozone, O'Reilly, NAPA, Advance Auto, or PepBoys. Follow their instructions and pump it to an adequate air pressure 12 -15 psi or the pressure rating listed on the radiator or reservoir cap. Observe the leaks and perform the repair.
      Note: do not over pressurize beyond the pressure allowed by the radiator cap, then test the radiator cap as well.

    Why does my car die while driving but starts back up just fine?
    While driving my car will die but it will start back up just fine with no problems. I had the alternator checked and it was fine. Trying to figure out what the problem is so I can fix it immediately.

    Blower will not shut off even when car is shut off. What would cause this?
    I have a 2004 Buick Rainier. I went to shut off the car and the blower on the passenger side under the dash continues to run unless I take out the fuse.

      Blower resistor is shorted internally. Replace blower resistor and you problem will be gone.

      I think that is a two piece hubcap. With a hubcap and center cap. The center cap attaches to the hubcap. and the hubcap has plastic nuts that attach it to the wheel lugnuts. You have to pry out the center piece first. If you pry on the outside edge you will break it.
      Not sure of your exact hubcap style, but typically you remove the center of the hubcap with a screwdriver or tire iron. You have to pry out the center circle. there is usually a small slot to fit your prying tool. Once the center cap is off you will likely see black plastic lugnut covers. The plastic nuts just unscrew with your tire iron. The plastic nuts hold on the hubcap. Once they are loose the cap will come off to access the lugnuts.

    My low beams will randomly stop working but the high beams work fine.
    Fuses, bulbs, relays all have been checked. I replaced the right headlight section because it was cracked. that worked for a while but didnt entirely fix the problem
