Air conditioning on 1988 cadillac

this system has a shut down mode when it detects freon gas is low. if the system is cooling the car just by being reset then you may have a faulty high or low pressure switch, but if it is reset and turned on and is not cooling the car correctly then that is why is keeps going into shut down mode. this was set up to avoid a/c compressor damage, this wont allow the compressor to run and over hat itself due to low or overcharge in the system.
the first step would be to evacuate the system and apply a vacuum for 45min. then recharge the system added oil and dye, (dye is used to find leaks if system looses freon.) then run a/c and do a vent temp. test, making sure compressor pressures are good and vent temp is good, at this time shut down car and see if it goes into shut down mode. if it does then have the switches tested and check the compressor clutch, ohm it. start with this, if the system takes a few days to go into safe mode then i would say there is a leak and it is doing its job, now you will need the glasses and blue light to locate your leak.

My car turns over but wont start

Do you have plenty of gas? Keep at least 1/2 and above. Also, add some fuel tank water remover...If tank has been low, add 2 bottles of "Heat"...Injector cleaning by adding fuel system cleaner after starting helps in the future. Your Volvo should make the needed adjustments for cold need to help it with the right additives for performance:) Hope this helps. (Is cranking slow?...also be sure oil change is fresh and correct oil viscosity 5W30...

I have a 97 Chevy Lumina. It has 276,*** miles on it. I bought it used 4 months ago. It was running excellent then the service engine soon light, low coolant light, and change oil soon light started coming...

The fact that the oil was low would not be from the oil pump, but from wear in the engine. If it is not smoking when you start it or as you drive, you can probably keep it running by just keeping the oil level checked at each fuel fill-up. As for the car shutting off, you didn't say if the engine seized or got real hot. A low oil pressure problem should have triggered a warning light before the problem got to the point where you lost the engine.

If the car ran after you added the oil, you got lucky and need to always check it.

2008 infinitit g37s died going down the road no oil light but was low on oil added oil still wont start

Sorry to hear this as this is practically a 'new' car and if Infiniti want to keep their reputation they will want to sort it. If it were me I would be well P******* ! Check all fuses. Is battery OK - check by putting lights on at full beam they should stay bright with no appreciable loss for more than 30 seconds. Check no oil pouring from out of bottom of car - catastrophic engine failure.

Car low on oil and motor wont start. It cranks over but wont start. No oil lights have come on on dash board so had no idea it was low on oil;

Some cars, not sure about yours had a switch on the fuel pump, if the oil was low, they wouldn't start. Get the oil back up the re and see what happens. The oil sending switch must be for pressure and not level, it will register 60 lbs pressure with only 1 qt of oil in there, try it, hope it helps.

Yellow oil symbol kept turning on

this could be due to low oil. you need to check your oil level. if it is full i would do an oil change with a bmw filter. there is a difference in filters. the service engine soon light will have to be diagnosed. meaning pull codes to point you in the right direction. great car though. happy holidays

Burning oil, but dont know why

Nowdays 1 Qt. in 3000 miles, really isn't that bad, even some new vehicles claim that's normal. I know with my current vehicles, both at approx. 150,000-160,000 miles, they won't use any for first while after an oil change, but then after mileage starts adding up again, they start to use a little, approx.I Qt, every 1000 miles or so, until it's changed again. I've switched to the high mileage oil, just for piece of mind, as they say it revives seals, and has added protection for the higher mileage engines.This time around I'm thinking of adding "Lucas" & see how it works, as I've heard some pretty good reports on it, just to see if it will prolong that oil breakdown, at mid change.
