Q: Truck overheats

asked by on

My truck is overheating, and I think the head gasket needs to be replaced.

Hi, if there are no puddles underneath the car and the coolant is low, then you have coolant leaking into the engine and mixing with the oil. You can check the oil with the dipstick, if it is milky then coolant and water is getting inside. Coolant will cause the engine oil to thicken, making it harder to lubricate your engine and could cause significant damage if left for too long. A certified technician, such as one from YourMechanic, would be able to help you determine why the truck is overheating. If there is coolant in the oil, you need to have the engine flushed to make sure you get rid of all the coolant.

Check your transmission fluid level. If it is low, have the leaks repaired and fluid added. If the fluid is full, you likely have internal transmission problems and will require a new/rebuild transmission. A trained technician, such as one from...

Q: Power steering cutting out

Hi, first I would recommend checking the fluid level under the hood and make sure the level is correct. If you are low on fluid, it can create pockets of air, causing a loss in power steering as you turn...
