When outside temp. gets above 70 degrees, car will quit running

My father in law is 80 and still working on cars and lawnmowers, he says it ran all winter without any problems, around May he started having issues with it dieing, he took it to a shop, mechanic said he needed to flush radiator,replace water pump and thermostat. he had it done and drove it home and it died. he has replaced fuel relay and ignition module. he seems to think when the weather started getting hotter, the car started having problems, im not sure. it runs great sometimes and other times it dies, you never know. anyway he is on fixed income and cant afford to keep taking it places or buying parts and not getting it fixed

First thing to do is find out what is missing when it dies, spark and plugs or fuel at the injector.
The next time it dies out, have him pull a spark plug wire off, crank the engine over and see if the ignition system makes a nice snapping spark. If that is good, you will want to get a fuel gauge and install it and test the fuel pressure, should be around 30 psi. Once you figure out which one it is we can go from there.
Good luck.
Regards,

What temp should a/c be in 1995 chev on max


Hard to say.
Under normal conditions, vent temp should be about 20 or 25 degrees less than outside air temp.
So if outside air temp is 90 degrees and the engine is at idle speed, vent temp would be around 65 or 70. On the road the vent temp could be less than 60 degrees.
If outside air temp is 70 degrees vent temp will be around 40 - 50.

I have a 2000 pontiac grand prix with a digital climate control system. The heat quit working, it doesn't blow out any heat. Now that it is warm outside the air stopped blowing out any air. The digital temperature on the climate control is not correct. When it states that it is below 30 degrees on the ext and it is warm outside the air wont be cold. Once it starts going above 30 degrees the air gets colder. Today the blower stop working all together. Was told it maybe the climate control unit was bad. You can hear the door opening/shutting when you switch the temp from cold to hot. But there was no heat blowing out whatsoever in the winter time. Could you please give me your opinion on whether or not it is the climate control unit or something else?

Temperature control sensor?


Sounds like a loose connection -38 is probably the open circuit position. Not sure where the sensor would be though.

04 Hyundia Sonata LX, engine performance drains with AC running


dear friend-you are correct when you say it can be a tempreture switch that might be at fault.your air con take a lot of torque away from your engine when kicking in so you need something to compensate and restore the torque.a sensor is added into the system to do exacly that and works of a signal coming from the temp switch.that unit is normally mounted on the fire wall.

Outside temp sensor does not work on 1995 olds aurora


You can buy a replacement ambient air temp sensor at an auto parts store for about $10. Its as simple to change as a light bulb and can be found behind your front bumper at the base of the radiator.

Your truck does not have to be low on water to be running hot...you need to verify the tempature of the cooling system, and the head temp...then you will be albe to tell if it is actually overheating , or just an indication problem. Be very careful as hot engine coolant can scald you badly (know from experience)

Air conditioning quit


Prior to charging the system, did you vacum it down? If you did not when there becomes a load on it the low pressure switch will kick the compressor off to avoid damage to the compressor.
