Question about 2003 Jaguar S-Type

1 Answer

Foggy windows I often encounter foggy windows even on sunny days. I turn on the defog and on cold day the temperature has to be set low, which blows cold air. It takes a long time to clear my windows before I can drive, and it often happens when I am driving down the road. Please help, I like the car but I have only had it a little over a year, so far I am not happy with the window situation.

It may be set to recirculate the inside air, this is indicated by a symbol of a car with a swirling arrow inside, the button will be in with the climate controls. always use outside air if it is cold or raining and you will avoid fog

NO HEAT. A/C works fine. Air blows but no warmth. blows cold air for front defog and cold air blows when temp cranked high 1-5

warmth comes from the heater in the car
if it is climate control check the climate control module
check for heater control in the vent settings as the hot water tap may not be turning on

Coolant level rapidly falling and heaters blowing cold air

You need to get a cool STANT (or similar) pressure
tester... find your LEAK... and fix it... FIRST.

Anything else is just wasting your time!

One of the best investments I ever made.

Why does my heat blow warm air then it turns cold

its VERY likely that your heater core is getting stopped up.

The heater in your car works by circulating hot water from the engine into a copper or aluminum pipe coiled up in the dashboard. The heater/airconditioner's fan blows across it and the hot air comes out of the vents. This is why the heater doesn't work right away when you first start the car. It usually won't work until the hot/cold needle in the gauges is starting to rise up.

If your mechanic recently replaced the thermostat, its possible that there is air in the system which will result in less antifreeze in the car than it should be. If this is not the case, the heater core is probably stopping up and will require expensive replacement if it cannot be flushed clean.

Check to make sure the car is full of antifreeze IN THE RADIATOR, AND THE OVERFLOW JUG. Please be very sure there is NO AIR in the cooling system as well.

2008 Town and Country air conditioning problem. my air conditioner works great (good and cold) both mornings and evenings when the outside air temperature is under approx. 80 degrees. Problem is - during...

when an ac unit that is working well in the cooler parts of the day but fails when it is hot , it is indicated that there is excessive gas in the system
ac gas is not added by the can but by reading the pressure on 2 gauges
one connected to the inlet side of the compressor and the other to the high pressure side of the compressor ( there are forums where gas has been added by the can that has resulted in hose failure and compressor damage)
it works like this ac liquid gas is released in to a low pressure area in the evaporator ( under the dash) and the heat of the car boils the liquid off. That makes the air cold
the gas is then sucked in by the compressor and converted back to a liquid in the condensor in front of the radiator
there the heat from the compression of the gas is removed by the condenser fan and the liquid is then sent back to the evaporator
If you have excessive gas in the system it cannot be compressed back to a liquid (too much heat in the gas to transfer to the air)and so the high pressure side safety switch turns the compressor off to prevent damage
hence no cooling in the hottest part of the day
as to you statement about the amount of water on the road
If the humidity is 14-20 % there is very little water vapor in the air for the evaporator to remove and so there will be little water separated from the air in the car
AC units cool the air in a car by removing the water vapor (humidity) from the air in the car ( humidity is what makes you sweat and feel uncomfortable as you will know when it is 80% or higher )
using an a c along with the heater ( climate control) is the quickest to defog a windscreen
So have the ac tested for correct pressure by a professional accredited ac shop

Windows fog up on the inside when defroster is turned on

leaking heater core. The coolant level may be low also. What it is doing is fogging up the window with the steam coming from the hot engine coolant that runs through your dash board when the heater or defrost is on. This should be under some kind of warranty on an '08.
