Question about 2001 Ford Focus

1 Answer

A/C quit working

I went camping last weekend and my a/c worked fine. This week I turned it on one morning and noticed it was not cooling as well. I went to the auto part store and got freon. When i went to install the freon i noticed it was kicking on and off every few seconds which is a sign of low freon. I added the freon and it got cooler. I drove the car and parked it. When i got back in it and turned on the A/c it would not come on. The clutch would not engage. I tested the power at the A/c and overload switch and could not get any reeding. No power. I have checked all the fuses and they are ok. The fan and green light comes on when i push the button on the dash. I can turn the clutch by hand under the car. I must be overlooking something??? can someone help??

These cars have a switch that shuts down the compressor when it is overfilled. (to much pressure) take it to a shop and have them correct it. There is no way to do this yourself with out a set of gauges and they are more expensive than what the shop would charge to do it

Alternator keeps going out

Have your battery checked before you put any more alternators in the car. If your battery has a dead cell or just needs replaced it could be making your alternators cover too much slack and burning them up.

Had similar problem. The actuator that opens & closes the air blend door quit working. This is easy to see if you remove glove box. The actuator will move when you adjust the temp selector (do this while the heater is running).

99 Sunfire Coolant keeps dumping

You need to find the source of the leak. it hasn't overheated yet because you keep catching it and re-filling. From your description, it sounds a lot like a bad water pump seal (part of pump) but without physically looking you can't be sure of that. when the pump seal begins to fail, internal pressure while running often will drive the seal tighter against the shaft stopping the leak. as pressure drops as the engine cools, the seal relaxes and permits seepage.
With time, that will change and it will leak all the time.
