Having problems with your 2005 Mazda 6 ?

The aircon is not very cold now and I think I may need to top it up. is this correct?

Answers :

Yes, it sounds like you are correct. It sounds like your freon level has gotten low and you need to add some in the low side port of the A/C unit. You can buy recharge kits that include a pressure gauge at your local auto parts store and you will be good to go. Thanks for using FixYa!

Hi, I'm thinking of purchasing a 1984 Ford Mustang convertible with a 302 and automatic. The seller says that the car has AOD transmission and that the kick-down cable needs to be adjusted in order for it shift correctly. He says it may need a different bracket where the cable hooks up to at the carb. Based on this, how much do you think it would cost to get something like that repaired. Everything else on the car seems to be in good shape. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you


Assuming all is true then it shouldn't cost more than $200less than $50 for the bracket and another $150 for installation and adjustmentHowever, get the vehicle to a technician for confirmation of this diagnosesthe last ... 1984 Ford Mustang

30,00 miles back we had computer problems sometimes doors would not lock and other freakish not needed problems popped up. Waco Sam Nay Dodge house- Sam Nay corrected the problem, At the, present it is in Allen Samuels Dodge house, and they think they need to pull the motor and check for a loose flywheel which may be sliding and causing timimg to be 20 degrees off. Any other inpu8t apreciated. Their mechanic tried to drive it and it stopped pullimg 4 times going around the block- in traffic. we


Not knowing the size of the motor you have in the van,i would start looking at the timing belt or timing chain causing the 20 degree swing. If it is a 3.0 liter engine there maybe some wear on the distributor drive gear causing the problem. The only ... 2005 Dodge Grand Caravan

My 1994 pontiac bonneville has a very rough idle, check engine light comes on and off, low coolant light comes on and off( yet the coolant is topped off), and now occasionally needs to be jumped to start. what is going on? I thinking I may need a new battery but can't explain the other symptoms. the vehicle has a young starter and alternator. Any advice before a put it in the shop would be appreciated.


Rough idle sounds like it could be your TPS system going bad.... as for the coolant light, it may be a faulty sensor, or you may have a tiny leak and the system detects that the pressure is lower than it should be. As for the battery its ... 1993 Pontiac Bonneville

Clicking noise All they told me was that the car needs a replaced upper and lower intake maifold gasket because it leaks coolant into the oil. I never got it replaced yet because i cant afford 800 dollars so im doing barely any driving right now. I hope that they are correct and that this is the problem. im thinking about getting a second opinion from someone else to see if its really leaking. I think it may be though because last week i was starting my car and it took a couple of times to start


Check your oil o your dip stick andsee if it is fuller then i should be also check and see if there are any bubbles in it after running the car for a few minutes. the other thing I would do is ask yur friend if the smoke that they noticed coming out ... 2001 Pontiac Grand Am SE

My 2004 yukon denali only heats up once i start driving, and starts to blow cold air when i stop or it idles. thinking it may need a new thermostat


Yes, it sounds like your thermostat is stuck in the open position.\015\012\015\012Your thermostat is located under a metal housing on the top of the engine. The upper radiator hose connects to this housing. To change the thermostat ... 2006 GMC Yukon Xl Denali

Transmission is not operating correctly when cold. The RPM's are above normal operating levels prior to shifting. After the vehicle travels a couple of miles, all is fine. Normal operational RPM's are around 2000 at 70 MPH. Now it is 2500 RPM's. Had the catalytic converter changed out about 6 months as well as the solenoids for shifting. I put an OASIS computer on it but could not find anything out the ordinary. I'm thinking the converter may be going out again.


The PCM is allowing torque converter slippage until the transmission reaches normal operating temperature because cold transmission fluid is a drag on the engine and causes it to burn more fuel. ... 2002 Oldsmobile Alero

Wiring problem I need a diagram of the wiring loom I have intermittent problems starting the Ford 75 series ( on a P plate) van and have replaced the black box and starter motor. The battery is often drained of power and i think there may be a short in the system as the dials on the dash are not working correctly. Any advice where I can download a schematic please.

The a/c blows really cold, the problem is although I can hear that it is blowing hard, it only trickles out of the vents. I think a vaccum hose is disconnected. I need to know where to look for the connections? Or any other suggestions of what may be causing the air to trickle out?


Does it blow hard and cold out the defrost vents? If no, your evaporator is icing up from too much freon flowing into it. The a/c cycling switch will need to be changed.\015\012\015\012If it does blow hard out the defrost vents, then chec ... 1990 Ford LTD Crown Victoria

Engine stalls Thought I'd have another shot at this cause last time the advice was spot ON {*_*} 1984 RA65 EFI Car starts first pop, but has a low surging idle. There's no problem in cold weather but, the moment the weather warms to 30degC the car stalls every time I brake, yet starts again 1st pop. Am I correct in thinking I need to change out the thermostat? OR does someone know another issue causing this problem?


Its not the thermostat. If it has a carburator Go to the fuel line and put 3 clothes pins on the fuel line. It will get rid of heat. I would love to know if it works out for you. Good luck! ... 1984 Toyota Celica

99 blazer has been hard to start for awhile but will start after a few tries now wont start at all. It will turn over but sounds like it is not getting enough gas. The fuel pump is only a yr old and you can hear it clicking on and it is getting gas up to where you check the fuel pressure. it has had a recent tune up and a cold start sensor. Our neighbor use to be a mechanic and has a code machine, He said it isnt throwing any codes and that it may need a computer. I am not sure this is correct.


Check the fuel pressure, these vortec motors need 60 psi of fuel pressure to start. Anything less than 50 and the poppet valves won't open. If fuel pressure is sufficient, check the coil wire ... Chevrolet Blazer

About six weeks ago my 93 Accord engine heat gauge went to the top. I took it to a shop and they replaced the thermostat and radiator. It ran for a while and today the engine heat gauge again went to the top. I brought it to the same shop. What do you think is the matter? A few days ago someone at an auto parts store poured in too much power steering fluid and some of it leaked over wires and things under the hood. Do you think this may have caused something to make the engine overheat or may

Car does not move while accelerating. I have been told the gearbox needs changing, however i feel there might be a loose connection or something may need tightening that may have come loose while the car was able to drive. I also think there may be a problem with the exhaust, could this be stopping the car from moving or is it gear box???

Dear experts: My 2002 ford taurus has zero heat. one mechanic saids the water pump in full of rust, another mechanic thinks that i need a new heater core. I think it may be the rust problem but need better advice, because of low money.


Unless the car has been operating for a long time without anti freeze there shouldn't be that much rust. The only time a heater core needs to be replaced is, if it is leaking. Look around under the hood for a couple of hoses about an inch in diamete ... 2002 Ford Taurus

Tried to start car , car won't start, sounding like car need fuel, but have half tank of gas.Car had slow acceleration prior day and was diificult to start but eventually started.Could Camshaft sensor be the reason the car may not be starting..A friend stated it may be timing chain, is this correct....its a 1997 Maxima.

My Mercedes C270 CDi has very low power on a cold start. I need to drive a few km's, switch off and restart, then everthing is 100%. If I don't do the restart the low power problem never corrects. When I say cold start, ambient temp is around 15 Celcius. I suspect a fuel supply problem or a sensor that does not work correctly until the engine has warmed up. The agents want me to replace the injectors and the turbo. This seems illogical to me as the car drives perfect once I do the warm restart.

I just had to buy a new battery for my 1993 Ford Taurus. My last battery wasn't even a year old, I got it after Christmas '07. This battery is not even 3 weeks old, and my car is dead. My son says I need a new Alternator, I have someone who has one for a 1992 Ford Taurus that he says will fit. Do you think that this may be causing my problems? I can not afford to bring my car to a garage to have it fixed. So a friend will do the work. I just need to know if this may be the problem? patche

I have a 1996 Dodge Caravan. It was running ok but while driving it seemed like someone shut the gas off & it came to a slow stop. This has happened 3 times now and each time I can get it to start a couple days later. I think it may be a fuel filter but im not a mechanic. It has been run out gas recently which makes me think this may be the case. I understand the fuel filter is on top of the fuel tank. Is their a way to get to it without dropping the tank? Is their a way to check to see if it is

Need to check the transmission fluid pressure sensor in the tranny. Can it be repaired or does it need to be replaced? The tranny will delay going into R or D when cold. It also sticks in gear "4" when cold. Recently changed fluid and filter and may have bumped sensor when replacing the tranny pan. Are they that sensitive?


Sounds like a fluid flow problem. probably need to change the fluid and filter in the transmission. If the sensor is bad it will have to be replaced. Hopefully it is that simple. If its sticking in gear and delaying when its cold I would prepare ... 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland

Air Conditioning My 2001 deVille air conditioning runs cold on the passenger side and rear seat systems, but is warm most of the time on the drivers side. When it is very hot outside the whole system will occasionally go warm, but cycles back cold without much change in driving conditions. I have checked the cooling system fluid levels and topped it off with DexCool. That didn't seem to change anything. I didn't think it would because the engine temp was pretty steady before. I don't think its a

Ok this may sound dumb but where the spark plugs located . It is a 2.7 in a convertible . I believe they are between the valve cover and the item directly on top of engine, looks like i will need to remove the square blocke held on with 2 screws and wires coming out of them , that attaches to a round item on the top. are there any special tools I will need or anything that will fly out when i remove that block.

Automatic sliding door does not close correctly every time. It stays slightly ajar. Local mechanic told me it is out of alignment, local Nissan dealer told me I need a new motor. I think the local mechanic is probably correct, but he was not familiar with what kind of adjustment the door might need. Any suggestions?

Hello, I have a 2002 Mini Cooper Hardtop and I am having some issues what I think may be my clutch. This problem just recently started. When shifting up is when the issue always occurs. I can shift from gear to gear and slowly apply gas into the new gear, however when I need to gain acceleration and I apply the gas a little heavier the car will over rev and then eventually grab the gear. Could you tell me if this is a simple fix of transmission fluid change which may need to be done or something
