Question about 2005 Chrysler PT Cruiser
I recently had my car repaired as a hose or something needed replacing..car was "kangerooing"...anyway now drives lovely but since the repair it fogs up really badly,the side round vents on the dash dont seem to have any air coming out my mechanic assures me its all working fine?cant see out of the side windows which is a bit dodgy.never did anything like this before? what do you think could have happened? the screen will clear but only about by 3/4 as the large vent in the middle of the dashboard works a treat, the very small side vents do have some airflow but to me seems limited. the larger round vents either corner of the dashboard have no air flow.Now i have no idea if they worked originally as never had a problem before.When i go out in the evening,then come back to the car,mines the one thats steamed up on the inside.I changed the airflow switch to circulated air inside so hopefully will stop that but my other problem remains
Mark this as URGENT (& expensive (labor)).
(and expect your mechanic to take it seriously (U 2)).
Get in contact with your mechanics licensing agent and start taking good notes...
You will need SPECIFICS (like: what hose)...
Ultimate loss of coolant means LOSS OF ENGINE...!!
You have me at a bit of a disadvantage with "kangerooing"
but if I am understanding anything... (we didn't see them a lot here in California).
It is likely that a MECHANIC with more muscle than brains between the ears could have done several things that would cause interior steaming (all bad)... and enough to fog the interior EVEN IN THE WINTER... is highly PROBLEMATIC...
At this point taking it BACK to that same CLOWN...
has obvious issues on all fronts.. I'm thinking at least your "MECHANIC" was changing a HEATER HOSE "bozo" may have ripped on of the pipes at the heater core... ($29 USA)
causing a leak (feel the carpet and check your fluid levels
(hopefully I'm wrong))... but this is easy to prove with a cooling system pressure tester... VERY EASY (see Stant below)..
As to the air-flow issues... It is hard to imagine
they are another issue... but NOT hard to believe.
My average with CHRYSLER Dealer repairs here
(Fred R Nichols Dodge, San Francisco = FIX One BREAK TWO (my brand spanking new '69 Charger...
(a long while ago))... but some things ESPECIALLY water leaks, do NOT get better with time... Hence URGENT.
From you "kangarooing" comment I'm thinking you are
still in your WARM SEASON... it is only going to get worse going into winter

The problem is the air conditioner vent door motors have gone out. There are several of these motors that open and close them allowing the air to move to different parts of the car. Since it is electronic, there are motors that open and close these doors. Unfortunately, these motors are not cheap to replace.

or it could be that you need to replace the air filter that is located underneith the dash on the passanger side slightly to the left

I had the same issue and then I got into a slight accident with a curb. When the collision place was fixing the car, I told them about the defroster and floor and they told me that they had to clean out a whole bunch of leaves and then airflow was restored. Have it cleaned, you may be surprised.
