Iknowhow:
Benz ML 400 started showing a dashboard warning to replace the coolant.
I have done that multiple times but I noticed it still keeps shorting the coolant after a few drive.
My office maintenance mechanic has checked and scanned but can not find any leakage anywhere and all the monitors look good and have no overheating.
So I am currently confused and need good hand to check and fix it

Check your radiator or coolant reservoir cover, check hose for crack and leakage, also check the colour of your exhaust smoke, engine might be burning coolant slightly.

It is ML 400 , 2015 and I have attached the dashboard message.

Do you have an auto shop I can bring it for inspection?

How did he check? By visually looking at it?
If you use water and not coolant you might not see the leak unless you have a very high concentration of minerals in your water that would cause the leaky parts to show signs of rust.
What you need is to run a coolant pressure test, or better still switch to coolant and lookout for whitish coloration around cooling lines, hose, pipes, joints, radiator cap and all.
You might also need to lookout for telltale signs of blown head gasket.

Good day house, I drive Opel Zafira 99/2000 model, manual drive. I discovered it is consuming more than expected fuel. I have been referred to two experts but they wouldn't give a specific reason it is doing so. Though I just replaced the engine not quite long and I have been noticing this issue since i replaced it. What could likely be the problem and the solution please?.

I don't know what to advice you because your your car needs an expert who'd physically inspect it.
Re: Tell Us Your Car Fault Lets Assess And Fix Them by smart2precise: 8:59pm On Jul 31, 2023
Thanks for your prompt response. I would like if you are an expert or you have someone whom I can be referred. Thank once more sir.

You should stop driving that car till it's fixed. Do not start that engine!

Your mechanic is right.

Good day peeps

I need quick intervention on my Honda civic 2009 Gearbox issues
I experience heavy jerk when shifting from Park or Neutral into Drive or reverse, it delays a little before jerking heavily.
But runs smoothly when moving.
I have changed the 2 solenoids, change the oil still the same, my mechanic suggest changing the Gearbox but am not convinced my Gearbox is totally bad just like that, I think it's a solvable problem. Kindly help in this regards if you have ever experienced such and solved it.

Have you scanned it?
Did you drain and refill its transmission fluid?
If yes, what transmission fluid do you use in servicing it?
