Car has well under 120k miles and sat all winter, started right up. Drove 3 times and it got warm (not over heated) so I found an almost empty radiator that I filled immediately. Drove another time and heat guage never said it got warm. I fixed the leaking exhaust, then I noticed radiator and oil leak(s). So I always check oil and radiator fluid before driving this car.
After that I drove around for an afternoon, and on a big hill lost all power going up. Transmission seemed to be all over the place, and I was crawling up the hill at 5-6krpm, eventually coming to a stop and having to pull over. Pulled over and saw the radiator fans in front stopped working entirely, but the heat guage inside said temperature was OK. I had to pull over multiple times and turn the car off, let it cool down (heat guage said it was still cool but I say BS), then crawl another couple hundred feet up the hill and pull over again.
I immediately parked it and let it cool off for a couple days. It moves around now at high rpms but just barely, and the transmission seems to think its going down the highway when i'm goin 2-4 mph on flat pavement.
speed controller? Sensor?
PLEASE help! Thank you! I owned the car for less than 2weeks when this all happened.
have the same problem?
