This morning when I was leaving work my car would not start. I had to have Security jump start my car. I replaced the battery last summer. A strange thing and I don't know if this has to do with it. My coolant light started to flash last night on my way to work. My coolant fluid is low.

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Brandy Schaffels, Editor at AskPatty.com, Inc. When was the last time you gave your car a tuneup? Without knowing more about the mileage and maintenance of your car, I can't give specific advice. If your car hasn't been to a mechanic in a year for a checkup, now might be a good time for that, and could help you prevent damage to your engine for unknown reasons.
