You got a small leak in the system you can tell by reservicing the sytem with another bottle of freon and if it works again then its time to take it to a shop they have a tool to detect which lines are leaking but dont forget to have them put the probe into each air grill inside the car thats where my leak was coming from... the evaporator..big job ! hopefully its just an o-ring in one off your hoses.

    im presently trying a product called "Red Angel" supposedly you pour very slowly 2 ounces into the service line that hooks to the freon bottle, hook it up to the low side fitting, add 1.5 to 2.0 lbs depending on your type auto this is curcial, it has to be the correct amount or it wont work... and idle it for fifteen minutes, max air on with all widows down so the pump doesnt cycle off, and puts out a constant max coolness!! well i tried it, and after 20 hours its doing o.k..... but the true test will be if it makes it past three days, because when i serviced it myself with a home kit, it would only last three days... took it to a shop and they used a freon leak detector and stuck the probe around into the air vent inside the car and it was leaking, it was the evaporator....big job, expensive!..if it was just on o-ring on a line i could have fixed it for $3 dollars myself. this is the third car i"ve owned and the airconditioning systems always fail on me. i guess i"ve got to start to remembering to start using the system in the winter months now because, i hear that if you dont it causes the seals to harden a get worn out quicker..oh well!

I have 2006 Toyota Noah how long should my radiator fan run

I am not familiar with your model, but the "rule of thumb" is :
The radiator fan "to cool the engine" will run until the engine temperature has cooled sufficiently to allow the temperature sensor to kick off.
(That temperature sensor is screwed into the engine block.)
This may be as little as a minute to as many as 5-8 minutes.
If your car had air conditioning, that would be yet another fan, that should run only when the air conditioning is turned on.

A/C is weak

I am not an automotive air conditioning expert, but generically speaking the common cause of weak cooling is loss of the cooling gas, compressor becoming weak, or a defective control valve; in that order. Most of the time in air conditioning systems they make a slow leak and eventually loose the cooling gas (freon).

Automobiles are ******* the air conditioning system because of the roughness they have to endure with bumps, jarring around, and severe conditions.

A common type of problem is the condenser leaking. The condenser becomes very humid all the time due to it being cold. The humidity promotes corrosion in its piping.

The air conditioning service person will put in the gas with an ultraviolet dye, run the system for a while, and then examine the system using an ultra violet lamp. He will be able to see where the leaks are occurring and thus give an estimate for the parts that must be replaced.

If you have an older vehicle, the air conditioning system can end up being rather expensive to service. With some of the common type faults don't be surprised if repairs can go in to a number of thousands of dollars, unless you are luck and the fault is a simple seal or gasket.

Jetta 2001 air conditioning won't cool..just had it serviced one month ago, it worked for 2 weeks. I took it back to shop, they said no leaks, it is the climate control. They suggested an electri

Expensive or cheap, it has to be done. Bite the bullet my friend and just do it if you want to keep your cool.(pun there) Thing is, those units are quite sticky and may need replaced. It's not something you do yourself. I'm good with electrical systems and electronics, but I won't even touch that.

My cooling system is over heating I have flushed the radiator and checked all hoses. The thermostat was replaced about 10 months ago so I think it may be the pump I was just looking for the Na fairlane...

If the car has electric fan(s) for cooling, make sure they are turning on when the engine heats up. Blow out the radiator core with compressed air to get rid of bugs and other debris. Make sure the belt that drives the water pump is tight and in good condition. If the drive belt slips over the pump pully with a squealing noise, that indicates a bad bearing/seal in the pump. Finally, if combustion products are entering the cooling system through a blown head gasket, that can cause severe overheating. There is a chemical test to check for that problem. Hope some of this helps!

Car stalls when driving

Take notes , when this happens.
For instance : engine warm or cold , outside conditions (cold , hot) , car driven for a while , long or short distance when problem occures etc.... , that may help for diagnosis.
It very well may be temperature relaited , sience it has to sit (cool off) for 5 min.
Ignition coils sometime do that.
I'm mechanic shop owner and intermittent problems are the hardest one , so any piece of iformation on above mentioned events may give a clue.
Good luck.

Service port

It seems that you have a leak, best bet is to bring it to someone with a set of gages to check the pressures while the ac system is operating. The high side should be about 150-200 psi and low side between 30-40psi with those numbers you should be running very cool. If its not that high then you most probably have a leak in the system most probably at one of the recently replaced parts or a new place, fill the system with a uv dye and recharge. drive for a week or two and check with a uv light.

1994 Hyundai Excel Air conditioning RADIATOR´S FAN works always very fast

this not really a problem as the fan speed is controlled by the high preasure switch in the ac system the hotter it is outside the higher the preassure will be in the system as hot as its been the preasure is high already when the compressor cycles it pulls suction on one side and outputs high preasure on the other the fans cool the condenser the higher the ambient temp the faster they go so all is fine...
