drivers side comes out hot. what should I do?
I bought AC Pro to install, but the gauge wouldn't get out of the red. The Youtube instructions said that it needs refridgerant if it does this. The air is actually working at the moment though. Can I install refridgerant myself and if so, where do I? I had a heck of a time locating the low pressure line deep in the belly of this beast!
my cavalier convertible has a list of symptoms as follows..1)cold start issues (always), cranking it 5 times before it starts 2) very rough idle at times 3) running way too rich (always) 3) poor gas mileage (always) 4) stalls when coming to a stop (sometimes) 5) running hotter than normal (always) 6) hesitation (jerking) upon acceleration from a stop (sometimes)7) excessive carbon build up, sometimes backfiring on start 8) idle will fluctuate up and down even in drive (sometimes)...The problem seems to be getting worse............the vehicle has 123,000 miles and no check engine light is on. Can one sensor be causing all these issues???
I have a miss in this 1998 Navigator and I had the fuel filter replaced already and we also hooked it up to my husband's nephew's computer at his garage, and it shows no codes whatsoever. They said the catalytic converter was out (one one each side) and they think that could be causing the problem..They said they are going to use some kind of glass muffler things to help fix it cheaper, but I don't know if that's the right thing or not...Help someone please before they tear up something else...What should I do....They said it looked like the fuel pump had already been replaced, and they said that someone had previously put the wrong coils on there. I need this vehicle running properly asap as I have 3 kids, and I need my wheels....HELP!!!!!!
