If your car made a super loud sound when you added water when the engine was hot yet you then started the car and no water leaked and no water is in with the oil did you crack the block?
Cracked block, cracked head. Why would you do that? Pukenstein@aol.com
Low coolant light comes on in a 2001 Alero and the temperature usually doesnt run hot but will sometimes over heat What could cause this?
I need to drain the engine coolant from the engine block on a 1997 transport. Where is the engine drain plug located?
It's probably a warped head & head gasket, or possibly a cracked head or block. But you probably have the sequence wrong. In most cases the engine overheated THEN cracked and you got coolant into the engine. That indeed is a possibility but burbs are notorious for having a leaking intake manifold gasket that would be the place to start you'll get there before you get the heads off anyway.
Diesel engines relies on heat generated by compression to ignite the fuel. When the engine is newly started the air the gets compressed also gets a little cooled by the still-cold engine block, so the ignition is a little delayed and the engine runs rougher. With a warm engine the the compressed air gets a bit warmer, so the engine fires easier and runs smoother.
depends if you have a scat block or not NEW ANSWER: There is 2 in the back of the engine block. There is 1 on each side of the timing cover on the front of the engine. There is 2 on each side of the engine block just below the heads. Sometimes there are 3 on the sides of the engine block. Depends on the year.
Where is the engine block of a 1999 Lexus rx 300 and do I need to take the engine block to replace the knock sensors?
Your engine block is the main part of your engine that holds the crankshaft and pistons internally. Your knock sensors, there are two, are screwed into the top of the engine block in the valley between the cylinder heads. You don't have to remove the engine block, you do have to remove the upper and lower intake manifolds to get to them. I changed the sensors in my 99 rx300, long day!
The serial # and the date that the engine was made is on the side of the engine block by the freeze plugs on the passenger side of the engine., if you looking for the engine size it's stamped into the engine block behind the distriburetor on the block and if a 440 it's on a plate just above the waterpump.
