Air conditioning My ac blows pretty cool air for the most part. It just will not pull the cab temp down to an acceptable level even on Max AC with fan on high. Upon occasion, it will stop blowing cold all together for a few minutes. It will then blow cold again. I have a cheap gauge and put it on to check the leve of r123a, but it shows it to be at the max range or just a fuzz above that. Any help here?

2005 Colorado pickup, does not have interior temperature control system, just air conditioning and standard heater. The heater temp control does not change the temperature of the air coming out of the dash air vents. The temp does go down when the air conditioning is turned on but it does not get as cold as it used to. It seems to be just cooling enough to over ride the heater. Even then, with it cooling a little bit, it does not change when the temp control knob is turned. It would seem that th

Hi, My 2001 A6 has a problem blowing hot air through the blower. it starts to some what warm up after the gauge shows the engine temp at half but if i speed off on the high way for a little bit or even down my street the same engine temp gauge drops very quick to barely warm. both hoses to the heating core are hot when engine is at normal temp but still barely warm air inside. the flaps are not stuck or anything also. the Air conditioner works good if i set the temp to low but when i set it back

Ford Fiesta Zetec engine, year 2000. overheats after getting up to temperature, stays on normal for 1-2 kilometers, then gauge shoots over to the red. I stop, can hear water bubbling, wait till it cools and back to normal reading, goes 1-2 km then does the same. Ok going downhill and ok mostly on the flat. Have had head gasket changed, fan, thermostat. The car doesnt lose hardly any water. The garage say they need to change a sensor on the Air conditioning unit.

I have an 04 pontiac grand prix and now have a reoccurring problem with the entire dashboard control panel going out. No speedometer, gas gauge, engine temp or turn signal indicators. it causes all the warnings to start appearing on my display such as low fuel and chargning system failure. If you run the car long enough while this problem continues, you lose your air conditioning as well.

I RECENTLY REPLACED THE THERMOSTAT IN A 1996 FORD EXPLORER 4.0 4WD. THE HEAT WAS WORKING FINE AND THE GAUGE STARTED MOVING UP TO HOT AND THEN BACK DOWN TO THE COOL MARK WHILE DRIVING. AFTER COMPLETION I FILLED THE RADIATOR WITH WATER AND ANTIFREEZE AND THEN THE CAR'S HEAT WAS WEAK AND THE TEMP GAUGE WILL NOT GO UP.

I have a 96 Town and Country 3.8. The heater started to blow cold air and the temp gauge was not at normal operating temp. (Usualy is about halfway between hot and cold). I have changed the thermostat and it worked fine for a few days then back to cold air from the heater and the temp gauge is reading below normal as well. I think the new thermostat is stuck open again. I did not find any trash in the system. The radiator has about 30K mi on it too. The Radiator cap is about a year or two old. W

This is for a 2006 Pontiac Torrent. Air condition works intermittently. Most of the time it blows room temp air, never cold. At times, what appears to be steam comes out of the center vents. Also at times, tiny droplets of water are spit out by the center vents on the air condition. Other times, air condition blows hot air. Sometimes it doesn't blow very strong and other times the power of the air is decent. Dealership keeps saying that its working as advertised, I figure they wanted to avoid fi
