2023.06.01 21:28 beeeeenqueeen overheating issue.
i have a 2014 grand jeep cherokee. first overheated like a year ago? blasted the heat and it did go down. since then we have had so many issues, we had the thermostat replaced but i still think it’s fucked. Randomly The temp goes up, dings and says it’s overheating or whatever it yells at u. every time that happens i pull over and wait for it to go down. Winter time was the last time we had problems, brought it to our car guy and he filled ot up with coolant, just told me to make sure the coolant is full, we have been doing that, few days ago i had the heat on low in the morning, and temp was all way up and dinged, yesterday, did the same thing. Anyone have any experience like this? and what was the outcome for you?

2023.06.01 21:27 MrPizzaNinja Why does exon and all those oil companies not just lean into net 0 carbon? Like just pour all their money into nuclear?
Don't wanna get into a nuclear debate but so u understand, nuclear power is safer than coal. It causes less deaths per kwh even with the highest estimates from nuclear disasters. This is all incredibly well researched by independants. Go google those videos of them running freight trains into waste casks, that shit doesn't leak ever once its stored. It's also not stored as something that can leak, its melted and mixed into ceramic and glass. The nuclear leaks come from bad transportation and storage before processing, a problem we can solve with regulation and technology.
Why don't oil companies just embrace it and make the switch? With the money they have they could pour it all into nuclear development and get years ahead of all the current developers. Its an already proven technology and would have an incredibly high demand if we switch off coal. The major problem comes from public approval but they could easily just pump propaganda with real facts to fix that problem. They could even lobby against their old interests and force the change. To my amature brain this seems like they would make billions. They would just keep enough of there oil industry alive to fuel needed for the vehicles that would still have demand. Once they phase out fossil plants the need for most of fossil fuels in the west world would disappear and they would still be on top, potentially in an even better position of power then in the 50s, just what they want.
Edit: People make the point that nuclear research is hard and expensive. 1. Buy out those who have started already at least to get a foothold 2. it's the only play those companies have for survival 3. Any of the shareholders who still had maybe 30 years in them would become some of the most influential men in history, who wouldn't take that gamble. it's not even like a gamble its almost guaranteed.

2023.06.01 21:25 Yohima54896 My Audi caught fire
| || |
So I have a 2005 b6 Audi s4 and I love it to deaths. I was riding around with some freinds car as fully warmed up so I got onto a little strait and went first gear up to 5-6k rpm and out no problems. But when I got back to school and began backing up and I heard a pop and suddenly smoke came out so I killed it immediately and popped the hood thinking it was a gasket but it was a fire I yelled “FIRE” and told my friend to get out it burned for a min before I disconnected battery and someone with a water bottle put it out. After it was out we looked under my car and there was a puddle of liquid I prayed it was coolant or something just not oil. I reach under out my hand in the little puddle and it oil. I cried for a few mins but right now this is all I know the leaking went down or less after it sat for a min not running but idk for sure and the truck came and picked it up so that’s all I know until I get it home and work on it if anyone has had something even remotely similar plz contact me I need all the help I can get. submitted by Yohima54896 to Audi [link] [comments]

I’ve bought my ranger velowave bike a couple weeks ago for my birthday but it started to leak oil from the suspension fork pretty often I’ve contacted support but they’ve told me that it’s not a problem. Did anybody have the same problem? submitted by Whiteknifeef to bike [link] [comments]
2023.06.01 20:34 otto_ortega Best place to find replacement parts?
I need to replace the keyless entry receiver module of a Jeep Grand Cherokee 2020.
And it seems to be a part hard to source. Looked on eBay but couldn't find one with the exact part number (68454196AA) does anyone knows of a dealership that I can either text or email to see if they have it available (I dont want to waste a ton of time calling different dealerships) or some other place where I can source this part?

I have 01 jeep grand Cherokee that I do front and rear brakes and rotors on and after I did that the pedal was soft and it had abs codes So the owner had me replace the master cylinder and booster and ABs pump I did that and bleed it and I’m back were I started no brakes and ABs codes Any advice would be amazing submitted by Aimingbreed to MechanicAdvice [link] [comments]
2023.06.01 19:08 otto_ortega Will this part fit?
I need to replace the KEYLESS ENTRY RECEIVER HUB of a 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee 3.6L.
The part to replace comes with part number 68454196AA. However looking on eBay I can only find parts that look exactly the same, but have a slightly different part number (like 68462436AA) Im wondering if there is a way to determine if one of those will work, or if this is one of those electronic components that MUST be replaced with exactly the same part number. Because I know that sometimes the exact same part will receive different part numbers, so I'm stuck =/
EDIT: Also the parts I have found have the exact same "Dealer No." not sure if that means what I think it means and is sort of the "part number for dealerships" and it means that indeed the parts are exactly the same.

2023.06.01 18:40 appy_fizz 2011 Honda Odyssey [100k km] or 2022 Chevy Traverse [New]? Goal: Reliability Wheelchair user
- Wheelchair user, drive from my wheelchair itself
- Both cars have a side ramp installed and a lowered floor. You can google Braunability Traverse or VMI Odyssey
- I'm a gear head and have been around cars since a very young age. I could fix a lot of things on my own, but due to my disability I can't even fill coolant on my own
- Drive for leisure only, love to drive, and like to go on long trips. Someday, I plan to take a road trip across US (West to East)
- Have a 2011 Honda Odyssey (with wheelchair ramp). Bought it about 6 months (had 100k kms) and driven 5k kms since then
Fixes done on Odyssey since purchase
- Transmission fluid flush
- Brake fluid change
- Oil change
- Tire rotation
- Check engine light fix - EVAP solenoid died ($500CAD)
Fixes to be done
- AC not cooling - leak somewhere
- Front brake rotors need to be replaced because steering pulsates on high speed braking. No urgent, pads have 80% life left
- Timing belt change coming up after 50k kms (maybe 3 years)
Otherwise, it’s a sweet ass van. I love it, which maybe bias, because it’s my first vehicle after 14 years of not driving. I have an opportunity to get a New 2022 Chevy Traverse with wheelchair ramp. Would cost me $30-40k CAD out of pocket
Why I should get it:
- I like the SUV look more than a minivan. Been drooling over it for more than 2-3 years now.
- Really want adaptive cruise control
- New vehicle, less problems (?) plus 3 year warranty
Why I shouldn’t get it:
- I drive for leisure only but I love that part. Only thing I look forward to everyday is going for a drive. Is it worth to spend that 40k for looks and self satisfaction?
- It’s a Chevy. Not trying to start a war but Honda reliability needs no advertising
I'm mid 30s and have goals of becoming a homeowner one day, something I've been saving for. This purchase would eat into 50% of those savings. Usually I am very frugal in EVERY aspect of life, but cars make me lose perception.
People who own (or their friends/fam own) Traverse, what would you say about its long-term reliability? Is it worth in the long run?

2023.06.01 16:19 VesPas2515 Unindentifed leak
Hey folks, I’ve been trying to solve this problem but to no avail.
My ‘21 DR650 is leaking. Not sure from where. I tried the baby powder trick, only to find that the bike does not leak when idling. I just tried again, let it run in idle for about 20 minutes and nothing. (Maybe I should be trying to give it throttle while in neutral?)
The oil is heaviest along the front of the cooling fins, but only goes half way up. Covers both sides of the engine, but favors my left boot. The area around the cam chain tensioner is pretty clean.
What could cause an oil leak front and center on a model with the good base gasket, that only occurs when riding?
Its not near the sprocket or transmission, so I’m thinking something is leaking when case pressure gets high during a ride?
Thanks in advance for all your help,
Sincerely, Not a very good mechanic

2023.06.01 12:34 cormundo The used SUV battle: The reasonable crossover SUV (2011 Rav4), its sporty cousin (similar Subaru), or its badass grandpa from the war (Old 4x4)?
So I need to buy a car. My budget is 10k US. I don't currently commute, but I may in the future as my current online-only contract ends in the fall. I live in Quebec and I'm planning to drive across the country to move to BC in the fall. I live in the city, around good public transit, so the car is a tiny bit of a luxury I don't necessarily need and I can take my time in picking one.
I'm fairly outdoorsy, less so now than when I was younger but its still there. I'd love a car more for weekend adventures, especially given I don't need to commute right now, but don't want to break the bank. I wouldn't mind putting something together thats in the style of the "battlewagons" or those crazy outdoors jeepy things... but I also wonder how much that would cost in time and repairs, given my budget leads me to much older models.
So, as I see it, I've got three options:
1) 2011 Rav4, 11k CAD/8k USD, 160k miles - this one I've already looked at a lot, and I need to make a final call on by tomorrow. I would say it feels like the most reasonable average of all decisions. I hear they are good in the snow, but not in the mud - I've heard the term "fake outdoorsy" due to the limits of the Toyota AWD system instead of true 4WD. It, of course, is a bit of a minivan of an SUV, so it fulfills a lot of my city needs.
2) A Subaru. Outback or forester, either would work, and I've seen (slightly longer in the tooth) versions in my area on my budget. However, the more research I do, the more i find Subarus from this era are filled with oil leaks and mechanical problems including the dreaded head gasket issue. The 4WD system is supposedly better. I also like their design a tiny bit more than the Rav4. Seems to buy a decent Subaru, a newer model than 2012 would be needed.
3) I'm now flirting with the idea of saying fuck it, and buying an older true 4x4 option. Early 2000s/ late 90's jeeps and 4runners have a beautiful design. If I am willing to spend 10k, maybe I can just put that towards the inevitable repairs and customization that those types of vehicles require. I also worry that they won't suit my needs for the rest of my city-boy life and the gas milage will kill me on the cross country move and in my time in BC, if I end up with a job that requires commuting.
So, WCSIB, what do you think? Which car should I buy?

2023.06.01 07:41 mildly_manic 2016 Ram 1500 acting screwy
I got an oil change about a week ago, they said that it looked like I have a coolant leak; I stuck my ignorant head under the hood, and some fluid was definitely spraying off of one of the belts, just from the belt spinning. Called the dealership (still under warranty, I think). They can't get me in until 6/8. I've been keeping an eye on the temps on the dash, checking the coolant level periodically, and trying to keep my driving to a minimum.
On 5/30, I had some unavoidable errands to run in the afternoon, heading home after, the coolant temp hit 250F and the dash flashed that it was too hot, but I was driving and within about 30 seconds the temp had dropped back down under 250. On 5/31, I had to go to work, during the drive (20 min commute, 5 on highway) the dash stopped showing the coolant temp. When I got to work, I turned it off then back to "on" (not started) and it showed the temp at 240F. I let it cool a couple hours, then checked the coolant level in the reservoir, it's still well above the minimum. But driving home (I get off at 11p), the check engine light came on, and said "Service Electronic Throttle Control", and the coolant temp stopped showing again. I was on the highway and 3/4 of the way home so I just clenched my butt cheeks and kept going. Just in case it was hot/heating up, I cranked the heat, I was always told that could pull some hot air off the engine, but the climate control was still blowing cold air, which is damn weird I think.
Literally 0 problems with this truck before now. Any idea if these issues are related? Are these known issues with Rams? Any idea as to what I should be expecting as far as repair costs? Sorry for the wall of text, I don't know shit about cars so I don't know what are important details.
Note: Before taking it for the oil change, it had been parked nose down on a hill for a couple hours after running the AC, and left a spot in the driveway, I assumed it was just water from the AC.

2023.06.01 05:48 Freya_88_ Need some advice
I'm looking at getting an 87 grand Cherokee altitude. It's got 250k miles and isn't pretty. Not afraid to put some work in it but, it's my first jeep purchase. I just need something 4wd for the kids in the summer for hiking, fishing, etc. What should I ask about? Common issues? Deal breakers? He only wants 1400. I just want a decent deal.

2023.06.01 05:39 Thetmarsh Work pays $650 towards car bill - now what?
Looking for advice on a new car via lease or down payment and finance. I have a 2014 Cherokee that is still going strong and I’m financially stable. I’m starting an outside sales job and will travel about 1200 total miles per month in the new car, although I can drive the jeep around to lower this.
The family and myself want a luxury suv and I’ve been looking at the Audi Q8, GLE, X5 etc. I mean a jeep grand Cherokee is about 60k new and decently loaded…. I have the excess cash to spend more on the one I really want.
The kicker is work is paying $650-$750 towards it no matter what car I get. Do I fully finance a Q8 and have a $1200 monthly payment? Do I put 40k down and have a $750ish payment? Do I lease?
Any suggestions are appreciated. I’m not sure of the best way to play this. I need the larger size car for family and weekend trips so a smaller car is out of the question.
Let’s hear some strategies.

2023.06.01 03:55 Littlefagg Car ain't starting but cranking
Heyi've been searching internet for quite a few days already and couldn't find the anwser to my problem.Short story i bought a car from a friend for cheap as it wasn't woking. He was driving it like always turned it off but it never turned back on. It had quite a big problem with oil leaking but that would be fixed by planning the head and a new headgasket.
So the overall problem is it cranks, it has spark, has fuel, i reajusted the timing to neutral as it seemed to be advanced, changed the ignition coil just to be sure, checked the main relay and it seems to be working and looking just fine, but still the car doesn't start. although once when i was cranking it it started for like 2 seconds and died instantly.There is a checkengine light but the only thing it says by checking it without obd2, cause it doesn't have a connector, is that it's the no.1 o2 sensor which if im not wrong is the one on the exhaust.
i'm really desperate to get it all fixed as it's my first car but i just can't figure out what's wrong with it not starting.
edit- forgot to add that the engine is d15z6 and the car is civic 1999 in sedan don't know the exact model but the european version.

I recently had the check engine light come on and this code showed up once I ran a scan. My vehicle is a 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee 3.6 liter engine. My question: is it ok to run my vehicle with this code on? I’ve heard that it would be ok but the thing is the emissions. If I don’t fix the situation I would not pass a smog. Just wondering what folks here would recommend? How much do the cats cost usually? I’ve been searching and get all sorts of different results price-wise. Anyways, any tips are most appreciated. submitted by CycleDelic88 to AskMechanics [link] [comments]
