Air con cool for a few days then won't get cool, stop and restart all good


Cars for years have been using a serpentine belt. The compressor only works if the belt is spinning. With the engine running check to make sure the belt is spinning consistently. The alternator or the water pump could be seizing up causing the belt to stop. Check your idler as well. Tension on the belt could be loose and again not turning everything.

Power steering failure v air con use


This is because the belt may be worn out or may not be tighten properly. The belt may be lose so that the AC stole all the power from the car. There is a little chance that the compressor may be in problem.If you don't have any idea about the compressor make it off.If you found familiar just adjust it to tighten the belt.
The power steering may fail due to the following reasons:

We have a 2007 CX7 and the air conditioning is not working well on either recirc or outside air in low ambient temps. When idling at the lights the air con becomes worse. There is no belt sqeal, and I dont...


When you have a moment pop the bonnet and look for the air con compressor run by a automotive belt on the side of the engine. Get the engine running at idle and then get someone else to turn the air con on whilst you watch the compressor. As the system is turned on the compressor clutch should engage and the unit should start turning, if this isn't happening there isn't enough pressure in the system (leak or just low on pressure) Get to your local air con guy and they will pressure test for leaks. Air con system is run on pressure, so that is really the issue you need to rectify

Note:- Manufacturers put the air con rad infront of the engine rad so stones get to that first, check the condition of the front rad through your bumper

Squealing,I have new belts and alternator.


Squealing is associated with belt slippage. 1) ensure that the belt is tight - at the longest distance between two pulleys it should be possible to twist the belt by about 90 degrees only. 2) with the engine running check funder the hood or the free running of the pulleys. a) Ask a colleague to engage the power steering from lock to lock and see if the power steering pump pulley does not cause slippage. b) set the air con to low and watch what happens when the compressor pump solenoid engages. If the belt begins to slip on the air con compressor pulley it is likely that the compressor is beginning to fail by seizing up. In that event preserve the belt simply switch the air con off and pray for cooler weather until the compressor can be overhauled.

I have a loud engine noise--somewhat high pitch whine--except really loud and only after so many rpms. The noise happens when I am running my air conditioner. Ten to 15 miles after I first noticed the...


So when you turn off the air con the noise stops ..
If yes then its the bearings in the Air Con pump which is driven by the same belt and when turning the r13 coolant around the bearings being dry and worn out will start to make the noise Same as the water pump does when it goes, but yours is Air Con Pump.

this is most often caused by a slightly low charge of refridgerent, as the engine heats the system the gas expands and the light goes out.
