Questions Answered by Avenue Automotive
Why Would My Ac Not Blow Cold Air? Took It To A Mechanic Which Said It Was The Alternator (Which Was Going Out) So Paid To Put In A New One,But There Problem Is Still Accruing. He Said He May Have To Go Thru The Dash To Find The Problem. on 2002 Ford Windstar
Standard A/C diagnostic in our shop would be to evacuate the refrigerant to verify there is enough in the system. If the system has the correct amount of refrigerant, then we re-charge and check pressures and component functionality. If they system is low on refrigerant, you have to figure out why, as it has a leak in the system somewhere. This is usually accomplished by putting a dye back into the system with the refrigerant to detect where the leak is coming from.

All that said to show that there isn't an easy answer to your question. There are several components to a working a/c system and would most likely need to be diagnosed by an a/c technician to find the definitive answer.
Low Growling Noise Coming From Back Of Car After Rolling Thru Some Mud And Water on 2000 Honda Accord
Could be as simple as mud or debris in brakes, shields coming loose or possibly a wheel bearing/hub going out. Try removing the tire and inspecting all components to eliminate debris. Check for rear tire movement left to right or top to bottom.
Car Doesn't Start But Mmi, Lights, Seat Memory Etc Works Fine on 2005 Audi A6 Quattro
We just received a 2006 Audi A6 with the same problem. We were able to find error codes in the Access/Authorization module. Clearing the codes in the module allows the car to start again. You will need a repair center with the right equipment to get directly in to this module, as it is not a typical "check engine" type of code. We aren't sure how long clearing the code lasts, or what caused the code to trip in the first place...but assumed to be the module mentioned here is going bad. We will test the vehicle over the next couple of days to see if code resets and access is denied again.
Blue Looking Smoke Comes Out Of The Pipes While Sitting With MOTOR Running on 2004 BMW 745Li
Most common issue for this is The crankcase ventilation system should maintain a minimum amount of vacuum at the oil fill cap. If the vacuum level is greater than 3/4", the ventilation valves will need to be replaced. The valves are on the top of the valve covers and can be replaced individually. A failure of the valves will create too much vacuum in the crankcase which pulls oil into the intake manifold.

To perform a compression test requires a factory scan tool that will set the valve lift to a defined position.
Was Runing Good,Then It Stop .Truns Over But Wont Start.Headlights Stop Workin 2 on 1994 Lincoln Town Car
Several areas this could be coming from, but it leans electrical...possibly with the BCM. We would recommend that you get it to a certified shop for a diagnosis.
The Transmission Pointer Doesn't Point To The Right Letter. on 1999 Ford Explorer
That is most likely an issue with your "prndl shift indicator". One of the staff here has a 98 explorer that is on its way to doing the same time. It can get off over time. There also could be some hardware loose that is causing the prndl shift indicator to not work correctly. It is not a problem with the transmission itself.
Smoke Coming Out Of Tailpipe On Startup Only on 1997 Toyota Avalon
If the smoke is gray, it is typically valve seals. If the smoke is black or really dark, then it could be an injector leaking. Unfortunately, the color or shade is important to knowing which way to lean.

Does the vehicle run rough at all when first started?
I Have An Air Bag Light That Stays On. What Is The Fix
on 2008 Chevrolet Aveo
In short, get it diagnosed. Air bags are an important safety issue and a light is an indicator that they will not work should they be needed. There is no single reason that could be causing the light to come on, but the fact that it is one tells you something is wrong.
Why Does The Ca Shake When I Do 70mph on 2000 Cadillac DeVille
There are a number of reasons a car might shake while at highway speeds. Improper tire balance is usually the most common cause. However, you could also have some poor steering and suspension components that are causing the problem. Lastly, you could have improper tire wear. Plus, the term "shake" can mean a lot of different things in the auto world. Best thing to do is get it to a reputable shop and let them diagnose it for you and then you can know exactly what the problem is.
