    I would first check to see if you have an refrig. in your system. Then possibly if there is a leak. Then go from there. Good luck.

Check if compressor clutch is engaged when A/C is selected,
- if not, check low pressure gas sense switch
- if it is open circuit the system needs to be checked for leaks and re-gassed.
(To check low gas switch, just ( briefly!) bypass it - if compress clutch engages you have low gas press.)

The checj engine light on my 99 pontiac sunfire came on last week and stayed on when i drove only a few short distances. it sat for 4 days and was on again when i drove under 8 miles then finally turned...

first of all, was the water on the passenger side from the air conditioner or a leak (what color was the fluid?)-the cap has to be tight, otherwise it will not hold pressure, so that has to be checked before you set off again-push down as you turn the cap clockwise, and it will not hurt to have water in the system (it actually transfers heat better than antifreeze) but it has a much lower boiling point, so the cap has to be tight. Pay attention to the temperature gauge and do NOT overheat it-it is an aluminum engine and they do not tolerate excessive heat. Take your time, no AC (although the AC being on can keep a good cooling system more stable since the radiator fan is forced on when the AC is running, so you can, within reason, experiment)-no matter what, just don't let it run hot-not worth it.

1999 Pontiac Grand Prix GTP. Mileage 132000. 1 to 2 shift normal. Trans. will not upshift into 3rd. gear, goes to 4th. It will downshif to 3rd. from 4th. When the trans. get hot from stop and go...

If tranny fluid is clear and at normal level, then the issue is with the transmission - it is getting ready to go sayonara.

Better get that fix before you get stranded.

I got a 98 ford taurus sho and I replace the thermostat and it still is getin hot today I drove it to work witch is about 30 miles what's the deal

OK, how hot does it get? It's normal for a vehicle on a hot day to get up to 220 deg. F or 230 deg. F and function normally. There is nothing wrong with cars that get this hot, and in a sealed cooling system of 15 psi or so, there should be no driveability problems stemming from this.

If you were able to travel 30 miles and not boil over, then it's probably, ok.

Make sure your fan is turning on regularly for the radiator, and that you're not losing fluid. Your car should be fine.

215f is NOT hot, 250f is. take a tech with a scanner on a ride with you. and verify if the gauge is lying or not. I know of a Excellent Garage near Dryden if you are near there?

Smoking auto tranny

I had a similar problem with my ford 1/2 ton pulling a trailer on a grade against the wind on hot day. thought I completely fried the tranny. Let it cool off, continued the trip and drove the truck for years with no more problems. Can't explain how your dip stick was dry however. The dipstick should have been wet with foamed trans oil.
