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.

Yes. Thicker oil can help reduce piston slap on an engine. But piston work requires engine removal and disassembly. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Can a waterpump pully freeze up?


Yes. The bearings can go bad and the pump will no longer turn. This will cause an awful whine from the belt slipping and your motor will overheat.

I recently replace the battery in my 2005 Ford Mustang GT. After I installed the new battery the green light for my dealer installed alarm keeps flashing even when I am driving the car. I went to the...


                Hi
                Before Battery Change

                • When was/or when did you notice alarm green light illuminated?

                • When after alarm was disarmed, did green light shine?

                First thing to check would be electrical connections starting from the battery.
                1. Follow positive wire lead from battery to fuse box connections. (Should be along driver side frame rail, or near battery.)
                2. Follow wrie harness to Relay Center. (Find Alarm Relay/Fuse)
                3. Also to Power Distribution Center. (upper driver corner engine bay)
                Relay Switch and Fuse to Alarm should be okay, given the alarm green light illumination.

                The Cars Brain, ECM Engine Control Module, manages messeges between power BattV and Alarm, also other modules and various sensors throughout the vehicle.

                When Battery Supply was disconnected, something happened, that stunned the memory in the ECM.

                Yes, the alarm does need resetting, its actually the memory messages saved in ECM need to be Refreshed.

                (saying "alarm needs resetting") sounds like alarm is broken, when that is not the case. Similar scenario is, when smart phone screen webpage freezes(alarm memory info in ECU). No buttons work, not even power button (Key Fob control). Only way to gain access is to remove battery.

                Lets try an experiment, this will be to loose still/saved frozen information, stuck in computer memory.

                How to Reset Vehicle Computer.

                1. Remove Neggative Post connection.
                2. Remove Positive Post connection.
                3. Let vehicle sit over Two Minutes, this time allows capacitors in vehicle Modules (ECM/PCM, TCM), to release any/all stored voltage, also any voltage in Vehicles ground circuit will be released.
                  • (I would typically wait 15 minutes) Capacitors with out constant Voltage input, will disipate rather quickly, depending on capacity size.
                4. With Battery Still Disconnected. Open Driver Car door, and turn Ignition to RUN Position.
                5. Reconnect Positive Post.
                6. Reconnect Negative Post.
                  • IGNITION is in RUN Position, when reconnecting Battery. Driver Door Is Open.

                  7. Turn Ignition to Off.
                  • Notice if alarm green light is illuminated.

                  8. Hit LOCK Button On Driver Door Switch to Reinitialize Alarm.
                  • Be SURE Key Fob not locked in car.

If a waterpump siezed on a Daewoo Lanos would that break the camb


Yes. I think. A lot of cars have the water pump under the timing cover and you change the pump when you change the timing belt. They usually don't seize though, they just leak. Did you run it after it broke? How long before the engine quit? Did it start knocking? When you go to change the belt, look for a broken cam, or other damage that the broken belt would have caused. Some engines are free running, meaning they will turn over no problem when the belt goes, other engines are intermittent, meaning the valves hit the tops of the pistons and cause considerable damage. Find out before you go too far. Hope this helps.
