Question about Toyota Corolla

AC Compressor Clutch fell off

I went a round a corner and heard a clunking noise from the front of the Sedona. Looked in my rear view mirror and saw something rolling along the side of the road. Went back and picked it up and took vehicle to dealer.
According to the KIA dealer...
Inspected and found bolt had let go allowing clutch to fall out.
Correction:Resecured AC compressor clutch. Tested Good.

It also happened that I had called roadside assistance twice in the last 3 days, prior to clutch falling off, because of a dead battery.

Is it possible that the AC clutch problem caused some sort of trickle charge on my battery?

Was driving then saw a puff smoke doing about 50 or so then Slowed Down Heard a banging Noise an A whit Smoke Screen In the Rear view Mirror Went To An Automatic Engine Stall..motor Only Clicks When I turn...


White smkoe from the exhaust usually indicates that the engine is burniing coolant...which usually means a blown head gasket. Check your engine coolant level to see if it's lower than it should be. A somewhat definitive test would be to check the compression in the cylinders - one or more will be low or nonexistent if a head gasket has blown. Good luck.

2005 Sedona fully charged,compressor does not turn on


Normally you would check for voltage at the relay then the low pressure switch, then the compressor clutch.
With the system charged or the low pressure switch bypassed you should have 12 volts at the clutch and ground. You can also check the clutch with an ohms meter to see if the magnet is open.

Hi my Hyundai Accent makes a clunk noise sometimes when going round a corner. It's not every time. Any ideas? It has just passed it's MOT last month and it wasn't doing it before the MOT.


If it makes a clunk-clunk-clunk sound while turning, it's your front CV joint that's bad. Check to see if the front CV rubber boot is ripped/torn, on either side of the car. The CV boots are located inside/behind the wheels, where the drive axle hooks up to the wheel. If damaged, you will probably have to replace the entire CV axle.

1998 ford explorer 4wd makes a clunking noise when i turn and the 4wd lights flash every 2 min. like it wont go out of 4wd or something?


The clunking noise could be coming from three different areas. Either the front or rear differentials could make that noise along with the transfer case. I would initially be looking at the transfer case as the culprit since you mentioned the 4wd light coming and going. My thinking is that the 4wd engagement solenoid is malfunctioning and trying to bring in the 4wd, then releasing it. The only good way to check the function and noise for this is to put the car on a lift.

Have you looked in the rear View Mirror lately, ;-)

Have you verified everything is off. Do you have a seperate light switch for the fog lights. ??
