SOURCE: engine codes p1518, p0125, and p0420 for 2001 firebird

P0125 sets when engine coolant temp does not reach temperature for closed loop operation within a set amount of time.
May be a faulty sensor or thermostat.
P0420 Is related to a faulty rear 02sensor.
P1518 PCM & TAC module communication detected missing or invalid serial data.
If TAC related repair has been done, clear DTC & recheck system. It may be necessary to preform clear codes function twice to clear this DTC.
make sure starting system & charging system are functioning properly. Low voltage can cause this DTC to set. This should help. Let me know how its going.

When you said you replaced all the cooling system parts, you mean the raditor, the hoses, the water pump,the therostate, the raditor fan and it's relays and sensers. If you've done all of this and you correctly purged all the air out of the system then The engine can be making too much heat another way. The coolant temperture senser can say that the engine is cooler than it really is ( makes a rich mixture, to warm the engine) The therostate may be installed unside down or is open all the time or is missing. ( the therostate needs to make the car get up to 200degrees F or the raditior may not get hot enough to remove enough haet to cool the engine. ( hot is good too hot or too cold is bad). Let's say all the cooling system work is good and you did'nt mix more than one kind of antifrezze ( they jel up and not cool.) The exhaust can be stopped up ( causes low performance too) Take out the oxagen senser and connect a pressure gauge ( leave the snser plugged in and grounded) If the pressure goes any higher than 5 Lbs. reving it or anytime then you looking for a clog. A good system revved up and heald staedy should show a vacume. The timing can be wrong ( low performance too) The timing chain can skip time and the measureed compression will be lower that 150 LBS. With the chain skipped the ingtion timing will be slow and that will cause overheating all by it'self. The engine may need an oil change, Gas in the oil from short trips and running too cold sometime. Overheating will rurine the mototr oil and it being bad will make the engine heat. The engine turning hard ( turning the engine by hand you should feel 3 compression shrocks per turn and it should turn easy except as it pressureizes each cyclinder, ( they should all feel the same) the oil should look clear and black, not brown. If it's some other color, coolant may be getting in the oil, The exhaust should'nt smell sweet ( antifreeze leaking into the combustion ) with the car running and the cooling system full with the cap off it shouldn't bubble or steam come out ( it tells their is a leak in the engine to the coolant and it'll blow bubbles in the coolant and the hot exhaust will heat the coolant more than the raditor will remove. It certainly should'nt bubble at all started cold and full.

SOURCE: location of low pressure port

Hello,
The low pressure port for charging the A/C system is located on the larger aluminum tube coming from the A/C compressor. It is usually located in the tube line near the accumulator. That is an alumninum cylinder about the size of a soda can or slightly larger usually located close to the firewall along the left fender side well. It will have a plastic screw on cap on it, usually stamped with an "L" on top. Your recharge hose will only connect to the low pressure side, the high pressure port is a different size valve for safety reasons. You can only get an accurate pressure reading with the engine running and A/C running at max cold. blower on high speed, after about 5 minutes of A/C operation. Temperature outside will also have an effect on the pressure reading, optimum ambient air temperature of 70-80 degrees farenheit. Directions for recharge are on your R134a refill kit, but the system does require 20-30 PSI for the compressor to kick on. If your compressor is engaging while you are refilling, you can probably do it successfully. If your pressure is extremely low and compressor does not kick on, you most likely have a leak in the system which will have to be found and fixed before you can charge the system......Mike

No heat


are you getting any air into cabin?? cause if you ar getting air but its not coming out hot then it may be a bad heater control valve. If you are not getting any air period then its a bad blower motor or blower motor relay.
