my ac blows hot air, it is a used car I just bought. can I just recharge it, or do I need to vacuum out the old coolant?

Replaced master cylinder. Air in lines and unable to bleed them without replacing calipers. Need to get inspected for registration renewal.

from the mirror assembly. No set screw found.

My car sounds like a airplane when I go over 35 mph. What would make this happen?

I can drive a mile or 10 miles doesn't matter. Once I turn it off it will be an hour or so before it will crank. The engine turns over so it's not the battery. I am wondering during that time is something draining or cooling? I have had a couple of things replaced but has not helped. Mechanic is even stumped. If you want to know what I have had replaced I will have to check. Don't know the names. All I know is the Walmart greeters are tired of me sitting in their parking lot. Please help.

My driver's door window won't open with the control, but opens all the way every time I start the car. I can close it, at least for now. Will it stop closing if I don't get it fixed? Will it be expensive to fix?

Compressor will not engage

Start up fine when u put it in gear if drives but won't change out of first gear

When it gets to 50 the engine willcsound like its speeding up but won't go faster

Climate controller has dual zones...the pass zones still works fine with AC and heat...the driver zone will only deliver heat regaradless of how the controls are set...also the fan speed does not work on high so I am think I need to replace the climate control panel...

My vehicle is California emissions and after hours of research . I saw that I had to buy a California exhaust system to fit my car which I have from rockauto. Now I see that the cat converter has no port hole for my already there air sensor plug to install into. My old cat converter had a port hole just past the cat.heading towards the muffler. I can't understand what's going on. ? Either I have the wrong cat or my exhaust system was modified ?? I don't know and can't tell? Thank you kindly tony

oil gasket leaking,see no oil pan cover.

My check engine light is on service engine light is on but the car runs good but I was told my charcoal canister is bad

2001 Buick Century Custom, 6cyl

Car starts and idles great but has no acceleration unless you punch and than takes off. Replaced in line fuel filter, plugs, and cleaned E G R valve no change. Service Light flashed but still does not stay.on. when First start in morning runs the way. It should very briefly

It switch out no problem

when you floor it it takes off. will not accelerate when slowly pushing on gas pedal. no engine light on but has flashed a couple times

The car will not accelerate correctly. When pressing the gas the engine reves but hardly picks up speed. Even worse while going up a hill.

I have tried a new bulb and a new headlight assembly. Tested the male end that you plug into light with test light and it has power. Male end of light not working has power at both wires on the back side of it when lights are on but light that works only has power at one wire on backside.

The car gets warm not hot when I idle. Mechanic said fan not working. Could it be a fuse only and it would start the fan again. Worth trying first? Car has 192000 miles but drives great.

replace the complete wiper assembly

I took my car in because it was leaking coolant, asked mechanic to see why it's leaking. I got my timing cover gasket replaced because the mechanic said that was the problem with the leak. A week later it's leaking again, I take it back and now it's the head gasket. Why didn't they see both gaskets the first time. Now they want another $1000 to repair.

Fans come on to cool engine.Not when I turn on ac

When I turn the key the car won't start and the security light stays on

No chip key wide ripped off to wire chip sensor out of the ignition

Changed the gastket and still over heating idk what else could it be turn it off 1 hour the temp statred to raise again. Help i dont know what else it could be

I have checked all the fuses under hood and passenger side fuse box, still nothing.

I was told I needed to replace my intake gasket. Very bad oil leak.

Mechanic is now telling me car won't pass CA smog because the AC air compressor is broken and bearings are rubbing making terrible noise. Does the air compressor have anything do do with smog test?

I was given a car. Have to transfer from OH to CA. First step is to get CA smog. Mechanic said it was sitting too long & I'd need to drive it. Computer wasn't recognizing oxygen sensor. But while talking to him, it made weird noises. Mechanic removed what I think was the serpentine belt. Found compressor was damaged. I can live without air conditioning. But he said -- the problem now is -- we can't replace that belt because it is no longer made. I saw the part on-line. Mechanic put the old belt back on. He told me it was dangerous to drive. I'm not sure what to do next. Can the belt be replaced?
