Engine Cooling System problem is a common vehicle problem that happens to most car brands and models. The following is a sample list of Engine Cooling System problems reported in most popular vehicles.
The car has been losing power over the past few months while under warranty. I kept taking it back to the chevy dealership and they said nothing was wrong and reset the light. However now the car will not barely go, I have power but its forced and its as if I have to push the car up the hills to go. I live in pennsylvania so this is not an ideal situation, but I have had my oil changed regularly every 3,000 miles although other issues have occurred with the car like the cooling system and the temp gage this time I have had it checked professionally with an outside consult rather than going to the dealership and they stated that it is my turbo it doesn't work and probably hasn't worked properly on my car. I have been on several forums for chevy Cruzes and it seems like there are lots of people with this issue as well.

We have 5 Chrysler 300's used for transporting our residents in and around our community 4 out of 5 of these vehicles have had the same issue. The cooling system fan blades come apart and the shrouds of the fan go through the radiator causing immediate leakage of all coolant and destroying the radiator. As of date 4/30/12 Chrysler/Dodge has yet to recall this defect and is not covered under warranty. This is obviously a problem with this year, model and needs to recalled on the 300's and the Dodge chargers.

When using the heater or air conditioner a toxic smell fills the cab causing metallic taste and occupants to have a headache. The factory says that they are aware of the problem and have even applied a star case number [xxx] with a release date of 10/24/2013. They say that the issue is bothersome but has no effect on durability or longevity of the cooling system. This is not my concern. My concern is, this toxic smell causing long term health problems or cancer? I have read many forums on the subject some dating back to March 2013.

Submission to mark fields re 2008 Ford hybrid escape defects. The consumer stated about two weeks ago, a red master vehicle electrical hazard warning lamp and stop safely now message appeared on the dashboard, while driving at 60 mph. The engine immediately shut off. He was able to pull over safely. He turned off the vehicle, waited 5-10 minutes before re-starting it and drove a few miles, before the situation repeated itself, several more times, until he arrived home. After doing some research, he narrowed the problem down to what he believed to be the (mecs) motor engine cooling system pump, which from his understanding, was unique to the 2005-2008 Ford Escape Hybrids.

2004 Acura Tsx 61k miles, cooling system failed completely. I was just driving locally when I noticed a rattling noise. On some investigation I found out that the noise comes only when the a/c is turned on. Took it to a dealer (pohanka Acura, chantilly va) and they said some part within a/c compressor has exploded and there are metal pieces all over the a/c system and that the entire a/c system needs to be replaced at a cost of $4500. There have been similar complaints all over the internet for the 2004 Acura Tsx's. I put on very less miles on the car per year and maintained it perfectly (periodic maintenance, regular oil changes). How can Acura not issue a recall or assist owners with this problem? the dealer said that they couldn't do anything to assist with the repair, nor would they talk to Acura to explain my situation. I just spent about $750 to replace a failer sensor to make the air bag check light go away. I did not expect this from Acura! I'm going to make sure all my friends are warned about the poor quality of Acura engineering and customer service. The trick part of it is that everything falls apart right after the warranty period (50k) is over. Well, Acura has got bright engineering minds to make the parts last for 50k miles.

While on a trip from ohio back to charlotte, nc I was driving through the mountains and got a reduced engine performance warning while on an incline with a truck behind me and the engine would not pick up speed and I began to lose power and almost got hit by the truck behind me. I pulled over, took the key out of the ignition, reinserted the key and was able to drive again. Upon my research, I found that the wiring on these vehicles has a known issue of being crossed and the auxiliary cooling pump has issues as well. I was told by my mechanic that the part is not covered and nor is the labor to fix this issue. I called Land Rover and although they are aware of this issue that they will not do anything about it. This is an obvious issue with the manufacturing of the vehicle as they are well aware of the wires being put in incorrectly!.

On June 25, 2013 @ 11:00am I called Mazda corporation (reference call number: 148295420) about recalls associated with my Mazda Tribute 2003 and was told that the recalls were not assigned to the VIN number of my vehicle. The Mazda representative stated that only the seat beat adjustment has been assigned to my vehicle and that I do not qualify for the recall. Mazda will not honor the recall. I bought the Tribute in 2010 from a dealership; thus, was not aware of the recalls. I have been having a lot of problems with the vehicle and have spent a lot of money trying to fix it. I have a 13 and 14 year old girls and am a single parent. According to the recall, the vehicle is not safe. I cannot afford right now to purchase another vehicle. I am only asking Mazda to honor the recalls. Please see the recall notice below from Mazda. Item affected: engine and engine cooling date announced: 7/27/2012 description of recall: Mazda is recalling certain model year 2001 through 2006, and 2008, Tribute vehicles equipped with 3. 0l v6 engines and speed control. Inadequate clearance between the engine cover and the speed control cable connector could result in a stuck throttle when the accelerator pedal is fully or almost-fully depressed. This risk exists regardless of whether or not speed control (cruise control) is used. Action needed to fix Mazda will notify owners, and dealers will repair the vehicles by increasing the engine cover clearance, free of charge. Remedy parts are now available. The safety recall began on September 13, 2012. Owners may contact Mazda customer assistance center at 1-800-222-5500, option #6.

2004 E320 4matic wagon. Engine stalled while merging to I-65 sb. Vehicle was 7qt low on oil. Vehicle was not equipped with a manual dipstick to check oil. Vehicle is equipped with flexible service system that monitors oil level, conductivity, temp, pressure. Owners manual shows that if any parameters are outside normal, or in the case of sensor/system failure, a red warning would appear on instrument cluster to instruct the driver to stop the vehicle and turn off the engine. No warning was displayed. Dealership states instrument cluster failed to communicate with central computer due to a software issue. Engine must be replaced. Requested Mercedes Benz to replace engine and assign engineering team to address issue and issue a service campaign to prevent failure from happening to others. Mercedes benz stated that they will provide no assistance. I am concerned that this issue could also fail to provide other important information (brake system, airbags, engine cooling paramaters) as well. As an engineer, in my opnion, this is clearly a design flaw that needs to be addressed and should have been evaluated by a failure mode effects analysis prior to deciding to remove the manual dipstick. If instrument cluster could not communicate with central computer, it should display a warning to stop the vehicle.

I have a 2003 Mitsubishi Diamante LS with 71677 miles on it all of the sudden my husband (the primary driver) tells me that every time he gets out of the car he feels light headed and nauseous. Days later the front windshield started fogging up while driving and after turning the car off (whether it is warm or cold outside) I googled why would this happen and have spoken with a few mechanics and they are telling me that it is the heater core going out, and that the reason why my husband is getting light headed and nauseous is because there is anti-freeze coming into the interior of the car which is very detrimental to your health. I have read a ton of complaints on different websites and they all say the same thing. I contacted Mitsubishi corporate today and spoke with a kim in customer service and explained to her what was going on and asked why Mitsubishi has not done anything about this. First because of the health implications, secondly because of the safety issue of the windshield fogging up while you're driving to where you can't see and thirdly that from reading the complaints, the heater core is right above the computer in the car so if the heater core is leaking antifreeze, it could fry the computer and cause a possible crash if the car were to stop suddenly. She said that "seeing that I hadn't had the car into a dealership in the last year that there is nothing they can do about it". I told her that it just started and what was I suppose to do, look into my crystal ball and know a year ahead of time that the heater core was going to go out. This is ludicrous! ! ! Mitsubishi knows that this is a serious issue and are not doing one thing to fix it (by issuing a recall) where do we Diamante owners go to get some help? do we need to file a class action lawsuit as that seems like the only way a fire is going to get lit under them (corporations tend to act if it means losing tons of money) the car can't be driven and I'm still paying on it. Help!.

Without warning, on two occasions, my wife's 2003 SAAB 9-5 aero wagon has stopping running while she was driving in traffic at approximately 45 miles per hour. The car has been factory maintained and is in excellent condition. Obviously, it is very dangerous to have the vehicle stop running without any warning. The car had a new fuel pump and crankshaft sensor installed but the problem recurred about 6 weeks after the repair. Thank you for your time and consideration. [xxx]

I too have 2008 Xl7, that required sevice due to engine light coming on with ticking noise. I too was told it was due to improper oil filter being used. My car had less than 21,000 miles. My car had been serviced at speed lube in mt. Vernon, IL. If Suzuki knew there was a problem with improper oil filters, why were the owners not advised of this problem with a bulliten news letter. Only the dealership was aware of this problem. I too spent approx $1500 to have my car repaired.

My coolant pump blew around 10k miles. I live in boston. It was cold that morning - single digits. I started the car and heard a flapping noise. I ignored it and drove to get coffee. When the car warmed up, the flapping noise went away so I started out to my destination. About 5 miles down the road, the coolant warning light came on to shut down the engine. I pulled off the highway and turned off the engine. There was smoke coming from the engine compartment and the inside was wet. I called aaa and they towed the car to the Audi dealership. After researching the problem, I learned that many others are having a similar experience. Count me among those that are upset that Audi is not fixing this before it happens. It doesn't have to be a public recall but a simple call from my dealership asking me to come in so they can fix a potentially faulty part.

As I was driving to work on a cold January morning here in the mid-atlantic, the water pump broke again after Audi replaced it about a year ago. The coolant leaked quickly, and the "shut engine" light came on. I waited for four hours before a tow truck was available. According to my dealer, Audi is aware that these plastic water pumps are defective but did not inform Audi drivers for two reasons: 1) they do not have sufficient parts in stock to replace all the probable defective ones and according to regulations, they must have ample parts before they can issue a voluntary recall; and 2) it has not been required by the government because there are insufficient complaints. The dealer replaced the broken pump with one that is now supposedly made of metal instead of plastic. It took them only a day to get the replacement part in, as opposed to a week the first time this occurred. The dealer informed me that they have been dealing with 5-10 cases of broken water pumps each week since the cold weather started - Audi A5/q5s.
