Question about 2001 Hyundai Santa Fe

1 Answer

My A/C stopped working about a month ago ... I had it checked and charged but it stopped blowing cold the next day. The mechanic tells me today that I have a bad seal on the compressor but I also know that the evaporators go on this model. Any suggestions on which way I should go? I have 107,000 miles. Thanks so much for being available to a woman like me who could use your expert advice. Mary Jane

Ok.. there's plenty of causes of AC systems bleeding out, and the mechanic could be right... it's not UNcommon for the compressor input shaft seal to be leaking on aging vehicles.... especially those with 107,000 miles. Your call.

2002 Buick Rendezvous no heat and over heated after warming it up for over 30 minutes.


Have a pressure test done on your cooling system, you sound like you could have a leak in your system or your system just needs to have the air bled from it. Check your coolant level also, with air in the system and not enough coolant it will blow cold and cause overheating.

Coolant resevoir question


First, going two months without checking fluids leaves you open to not know when it started to get low. If you are filling the tank with gas, then you should check all the other fluids as well. By the book, you have two marks on the overflow container, COLD & HOT, normally we add coolant to the COLD level becuase of expansion when HOT it could overflow and waste coolant. So the new shop did not do anything bad, and the old shop should have advised you to check fuild levels often. In either case over two months evaporation could have reduced the coolant in the resevoir. It would be a good idea for the next few weeks to check it prior to starting the vehicle each day and not the level when cold, then check it when it has had time to warm up, such as when fueling the vehicle. Constanly having to add coolant is a serious condition that MUST be corrected soon or could lead to more serious engine failure. Hope this helps you.
