Question about 2000 Ford Focus

1 Answer

How do I check the pressure of my compressor?

2000 Ford Focus is giving off fumes thru the air vents. Fumes now leaving film on windows. Some vents close shut when air is turned up. Am able to place hand over muffler rather easily and the car stalls. Does that have anything to do with the compressor?

Exhaust fumes coming through air vent on the driver side

Dangerous. There's a leak in the exhaust near the engine. If you can leave the AC in maximum mode - this might keep the fumes out of the vehicle. But it is important you get this leak fixed soon. The vehicle needs to be put on a lift and checked out.

Code comes of for leak evac the shop ran smoke and could not find a leak I got a new gas cap, I don't smell gas help?

Make sure the computer has been reset since changing the cap. Autozone, etc. will scan for free.

The smoke test should have caught the problem provided the shop looked at the gas tank too. There can be a problem in the electric solenoid valving for the canister which can be concealing a leak beyond the solenoid valving. If the solenoid is closing off the flow, then it can also close off the leak.

As for smelling gas, its the fumes which flow in these hoses, not raw gas. If the Vacuum system draws the fumes in, or if the leak is rearward, there is less of a chance of smelling the fumes. Rushing air from driving will dissipate many fumes.

What is the function of a vent valve

Since EPA regulations say a car can't let gas fumes into the air the vent valve opens to let air enter the fuel tank so it won't collapse when the fuel is removed to run the engine. It closes when there is pressure above atmospheric pressure so the gas fumes can't come out

On my 96 ford explorer, radiator level was down 1 gallon of water, put water in it and started the car and smokke/fumes came out of the front window defroster. what could cause that condition? ty

Well it depends - it could mean the heater core is leaking, but chances are the source is something leaking on the engine and the fumes/smoke was pulled into the heater defroster thru the outside vent in front of the windshield.

I smell fumes coming in thru my air vents in my 2000 mercury sable

I had something similar happen to me. It was loose fuel lines' gaskets. It was inexpensive, about $78 was what my mechanic charged.

Fumes escaping from ac vents inside vehicle while driving and leaves a film residue on inside of windshield whenever the heat or defrost are used.

Hello dedunwoodie.
Your heater core is beginning to leak coolant.
As the fan blows through it it is picking up the liquid and depositing it on your windshield.
It will need to be replaced to solve your problem.

I have petrol smells coming from my air vents, is this common. Mostly happens when sitting in traffic.

No not common. Check to see if petrol is leaking anywhere. Check good this is unsafe. Sitting in traffic gives the fumes time to rise up. Try closing the vents if possible but certainly check for raw petrol.

Unwanted fumes gas in ford falcon futura

is the car on recirculate or fresh air? air from your aircon comes through the bottom of your front windscreen, make sure its clear and free of leaves or anything that can cause blockage to stop it from become damp inside the aircon ducts. if it is definately petrol fumes you may have an exhaust leaking from your engine bay, releasing the fumes into your cabin, that is the most common reason for petrol fumes in your aircon.

Code 446 comes on and I smell gas

if that was the code for the purge vent solenoid i would say it is bad since you smell fumes. because that solenoid allows the vacuume from the engine while it is running to pull the excess fumes from the fuel tank and burn them off inside the engine. also might want to check lines under the hood associated with the solenoid to make sure excess air pressure from the fumes building up didn't blow a vac. line off. i would also check the condition of your fuel cap, if it doesn't seal good it could also cause a similar problem.
