I had this problem with my 2002 Cabrio. You have a coolant leak somewhere. At first I thought it was the surface pipes, changed those and it would still be low every time I checked. ( the clear bubble at the top right under the hood ) So later found out it was leaking through my heater core which uses the coolant as well. Shouldn't be to expensive just a few tubes to change unless it is your heater core.

According to http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=2&ved=0CDMQFjAB&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.aircommand.com.au%2Fdocs%2FIbisTechManual.pdf&ei=29JPVfO8NYu9sAWE_YGQAg&usg=AFQjCNEPb_nNaXQsRrD2ZphXVLpRYwECGQ&sig2=cHErjmhdOfyCsep25gpmfw

E4: Indicates lack of refrigerant, or the compressor is not running, or the thermistor is out of calibration. Action: Check that the compressor is running by listening. If it is apparent that the compressor is running, then check the temperature difference across the evaporator. i.e. Measure temperature of return air at inlet filters and measure temp. of discharge air at grilles. This temp diff. should be 14 to 18 C. with fan on hi speed. If temp diff. is less than this, suspect lack of refrigerant. Fit a suction gauge to access valve at rear of unit. See fig 12. On a 35C outside temp. then suction should be 380 to 450Kpa.
Page 2
Action (continued) If the temp. differential is 14C or more but unit goes out on E4 after approx. 30 minutes, please check the actual thermistor temperature by the following procedure. With the inside fan running on Hi. Press Temp down button followed by the mode button. Hold them both in for approx 5 seconds. The amber Lock LED illuminates. Now press the Temp down button and the Sleep button Together for about 1 second. The green Med speed will be Flashing. The display is now reading the temp of the outside coil. Now press the Temp up button once. The Green Hi speed will be flashing. The display is now reading the temp. of the inside coil. This temp will usually be from 5 to 12 C. If it is above 24C. It is another indication of lack of refigerant. If on the other hand the air on /air off differential is 14C or greater then suspect the thermistor itself to be out of calibration. Check the thermistor as per an E1,E2 or E3 failure by measuring its resistance. See fig 19 and referring to table 1.

1999 Jeep Wrangler - 4cyl - 5 speed. Where do I start if my heater is not getting hot. Really doesn't get warm. Just blows out cool air. Side note: This is my 3rd winter with this Jeep and it's never...


The temp reading on the dash is a very big clue... Likely the thermostat (at the end of the large top radiator hose inside the metal housing) is stuck open. When that happens, the coolant in the engine never reaches full temp. Not only can that result in a low heat condition but it can also give you poor fuel mileage as the computer always thinks the engine is cold and therefore it adds extra fuel to keep it running.
Replace with a 195 degree(f) thermostat, run the engine (with the heater on full heat) to nearly normal temp, turn it off and wait about three minutes, then re-start and continue filling. Once full, add whatever is necessary to the recovery bottle and close it up and check for leaks.

I have a 1995 Grand Caravan ES with a rebuilt 3.8L V6. It also has a remanufactured PCM. The engine will run and as it warms (registered on temp gauge) it will start missing and eventually stop. Restart...


Do you get a check engine light? If so, read the codes with a scanner and chase down the clues. Does the PCM match the car and engine? Was the original engine a 3.8L? 5 to 10 minutes is not very long for an engine to cool down appreciably. Hopefully, the PCM codes will indicate whether the missing problem is fuel or ignition related.

AC stops working when cabin temp reaches 109-110


indicates gas pressure and condenser cooling problems
check the condenser fan is working properly and have the gas pressures checked by gauges
check that the evaporator fins are clean and not blocked as ice build up will cause the same indications

Have you checked all fuses for the cooling fans? Seems to be that the car is warming up to temp and then some, and protecting itself from overheating by shutting down the engine.
