Most likely cause is a leak in the AC system. Adding refrigerant alone won't cure your problem. Get a can of R-134A with leak detector in it. It has a UV dye that will glow wherever the system is leaking. Best of luck.\015\012Greg ... 2000 Nissan Frontier

The dual climate control for the drivers side is stuck on cold. I assume it is one of the three accuators under the dash or may be more than one. Please provide instruction of the best way to get to these and change them out. The blower has stopped working a few times but you can slap the dash pretty hard and get it to turn on. It also fluctuates presseure high and low as your driving. Please fix this!

Mercedes GL450 2007 55000mi Hard to start. When it's hot or all the way cold it starts fine. But when I try to start after an hour or so it just turns over. It will turn over for as long as I want so the battery seems fine. Sounds like it's not getting enough gas. Sometimes it'll stumble-run for a second or two.

Hi there...My 98 Expedition was running way hot then, within minutes, would drop to way cold. I replaced the thermostat and topped off the fluid. It didn't leak and seemed to work but then started dropping to way cold again even after driving for a while. It did it again tonight and, after driving around a parking lot for a while, I got it to come back up but once I praked in my driveway it leaked a good portion of the fluid out of the resevior. Any thoughts? THANKS!

2002 Chevy Impala, car will not get over 145 degrees while driving on cold nights. It will rise to about 160 while at idle. I don't know if it's the cold air or a stuck thermasat. Didn't have this problem last winter. Also would blocking the front grill help keep some cold air out? Air doesn't get very hot, hard to keep windshield defrosted. Could this be because the engine isn't getting hot enough?

I have a 1999 Cadillac Deville Concorse. The climate controls are all on the dash below the radio. The drivers side works perfectly (both hot and cold), but the passenger side works intermittently. If I turn the heat on, the passenger side blows cold air for some time...then suddenly starts blowing hot air after 5-15 minutes of randomly adjusting the controls. Was wondering if my control panel is bad (and if there's any way to test it), or if the actuating lever may be gummed up...is that possib
