Question about 2004 Chevrolet Aveo

How do I replace the interior Air Filter

No matter how many times I clean the inside of the windshield it doesn't take long and there is a film on the inside. No I don't smoke but that is what it looks like. I have 145K miles on the 2004 Aveo and the only things that have been done to it is replaced the timing belt every 50K and just replaced the front and rear brakes. The rear brakes wore out before the front.

Tip

Tips for operating Air conditioning system on Toyota Hilux and someother...


To cool off your Toyota after it has been parked in the hot sun, drive with the windows open for a few minutes. This vents the hot air, allowing the air conditioning to cool the interior more quickly.

Make sure the air intake grilles in front of the windshield are not blocked (by leaves or snow, for example).

On humid, do not blow cold air on the windshield. The windshield could fog up because of the difference in air temperature on the inside and outside of the windshield.

Keep the area under the front seats clear to allow air to circulate throughout the vehicle.

On cold days, set the fan speed to high for a minute to help clear the intake ducts of snow or moisture. This can reduce the amount of fogging on the windows.

When driving on dusty roads, close all windows. If dust thrown up b the vehicle is still drawn into the vehicle after closing the windows, it is recommended that the in intake be set to FRESH and the fan speed to any setting except "OFF".

If following another vehicle on a dusty road, or driving in windy and dusty conditions, it is recommended that the air intake be temporarily set to RECIRCULATE, which will close off the outside passage and prevent outside air and dust from entering the vehicle interior.

HEATING

For best results, set controls to;
Fan speed ---- Any setting except "OFF"
Temperature----Towards WARM (red zone)
Air intake ---- FRESH (outside air)
Air flow ---- FLOOR
Air conditioning ---- OFF

For quick heating, select recirculated air for a few minutes. To keep the windows from fogging, select fresh after the vehicle has been warmed.

Press the "A/C" button on for dehumidified heating.

Choose floor/windshield air flow to heat the voltage interior while defrosting or defogging the windshield.

AIR CONDITIONING

For best results, set controls to;

Fan speed --- Any setting except 'OFF"
Temperature --- Towards COLD (blue zone)
Air intake --- (outside air)
Air flow --- PANEL
Air conditioning --- ON

For quick cooling, move the air intake selector to recirculate for a few minutes.

VENTILATION

For best results, set controls to;

Fan speed --- Any setting except 'OFF"
Temperature --- Towards COLD (blue zone)
Air intake --- (outside air)
Air flow --- PANEL
Air conditioning --- ON

DEFOGGING

The inside of the windshield

For best results, set controls to:

Fan speed --- Any setting except 'OFF"
Temperature --- Towards WARM (red zone) to heat; COLD (blue zone) to cool
Air intake --- FRESH (outside air)
Air flow --- WINDSHIELD
Air conditioning --- ON

The outside of the windshield

For best results, set controls to:

Fan speed --- Any setting except 'OFF"
Temperature --- Towards WARM (red zone)
Air intake --- FRESH (outside air)
Air flow --- WINDSHIELD
Air conditioning --- OFF

On humid days, do not blow cold air on the windshield. The windshield could fog up because of the difference in air temperature on the inside and outside of the windshield.

DEFROSTING

The outside of the windshield

For best results, set controls to:

Fan speed --- Any setting except 'OFF"
Temperature --- Towards WARM (red zone)
Air intake --- FRESH (outside air)
Air flow --- WINDSHIELD
Air conditioning --- OFF

To heat the vehicle interior while defrosting the windshield, choose floor/windshield air flow.

How do i clean the windshield it is kind of fog


Check your coolant level, if its low it may indicate a heater core leak into the vehicle interior. It will severely fog up the windshield and seem like an oily deposit on the glass. If good just keep the heater on defrost to the windshield or blend to defrost and heater.

WINDSHIELD FOGGING UP INSIDE WHEN ITS SUMMER TIME. I NOTICE THIS PROBLEM WHEN THE WEATHER IS HOT(SUMMER TIME). MY WINDSHIELD WILL BE COVERED WITH LIKE A SMALL FILM AND IT GLARES WHILE DRIVING ON A SUNNY...


HI,
I think you are experiencing normal condensation,
try putting the heat and AC control to the position that blows a small amount of conditioned air up through the defrosters. This dries the windshield.
Good Luck !!!!!!!!!!!!

My interior windows fog up all the time it seems fine when ideling but when i start driving it gets foged i had the heater core checked and that was fine i just had the coolent flushed and filled it now...


The pollen filter is either near the fan motor underneath the dash, normally behind glove box, otherwise it will be outside in the compartment below the wipers. This a usual cause of inside windows foging and especially when a car is older than 4-5 years and in humid enviroment. Best filters are carbon type but they are expensive too.

The windows keep fogging up this winter no matter


Hello gebb.
There are a few problems that can arise to cause this issue.
First of all, do you have an odor inside the car and does it leave a film on the windshield that is hard to remove? If so your heater core is leaking antifreeze into the plenum and being blown inside the car. Replacement is necessary to repair.
Next is a possible simple issue, the recirculation door if closed will pull all the air supply for the blower fan from inside your car. The air inside is moist and will never defrost the windshield. Make sure you turn off recirculation.
Next issue is your air conditioner system. If your A/C system has quit working you may notice more moisture inside your car. When you turn on your defroster it activates the A/c compressor. When it comes on it makes the incoming air pass over the very cold evaporator inside the plenum. The water vapor condenses on the cold surface and is removed from the incoming air.
Next is a possible leak into the interior of your car. Absorbed by carpets and insulation this moisture can add greatly to vapor content in the air, especially as the car warms.
I hope this helps you find your problem. If you have any more questions leave them in the "add comments" and I will check back.
Thank you for using FixYa!

Windshield leaks air after having it replaced


The problem most likely comes from the body of the car being twisted. What needs to be done is to determine what area of the windshield is leaking. This can be done with someone holding a lit cigarette inside of the car. A second person outside of the car with an air hose. Move the air hose around the perimeter of the windshield while following it from the inside with the cigarette careful not to burn the interior. Once you hit the leaking spot the smoke will show you exactly where it is coming from. Now take out the interior panels surrounding the glass. Shoot urethane into the surroundng area of the glass where it leaks. This can be bought at any glass shop. Take a flat tool and spoon the adhesive into the open area. Replace the interior mouldings and do not wash for 48 hrs.

Cabin Air Filter Installation
Annoyed with all the pollen and dust in your interior? Unless you special ordered it, Ford left out the cabin air filter. Here's how to install one in your Focus. Compliments of myFordFocus.com Forum Member: CinnabonBoy Cost: $10.00 Time to Complete: 10 minutes Tools Required:
  • Flat Head screwdriver
  • Phillips head screwdriver
Parts Needed:
  • Purolator cabin filter: C25387 -OR- Motorcraft cabin filter: FP38
cabin2-small.jpg cabin3-small.jpg cabin4-small.jpg
Instructions: (Click images to Enlarge)
  1. Stop the windshield wipers when they are in the up position. Since the filter will be placed on the passenger side, this will make it easier to access the panel.
  2. In the center of the windshield, there is a small plastic circle piece. Pry it off with the flathead screwdriver, and set it aside in a safe place. Remove the screw you have uncovered. (See picture) This will make it easier to remove the panel you are about to remove.
  3. There are 3 plastic locking clips holding the cover down. Use your flathead screwdriver to GENTLY pry them up. Once they are up, give the whole piece a little tug up and to the left. You will see the slot where the filter goes.
    • BE CAREFUL!!!! Everything is made of plastic, and everything can break. Take your time, and don't get frustrated.
  4. In this slot, there is an eggcrate style plastic piece retaining the space where your filter is about to be placed. Pull up and out on it to remove it. You will not need this piece, so you can discard it, or keep it in a safe place.
  5. Remove your filter from the box.
    • Note: which side is to be placed "up".
  6. Slide the filter into the casing, ensuring a snug fit.
  7. Replace everything you removed by reversing the steps above.
  8. Go in the car, and blast the vent, to remove any dust, etc. that may have been in the vents.
  9. Enjoy your clean air! You will notice that your interior will stay cleaner for longer periods of time, and you can breathe easier!!
