We have a 1997 Coleman pop up camper. We are having issues with AC. It blows out some cold air but not a lot and it keeps leaking water on the inside of the camper. I have called a repair man they said...

If you have some cooling, but not enough, then chances are that the system is low on freon. The only reason a system would need freon is because the freon leaked out. If the leak is not sealed before recharging with freon, the freon will eventually leak out again. Leak repairs are expensive so if it's a small leak it may be more cost effective to recharge the system every two or three years. Freon recharging is not a do-it-yourself job. Only people certified to handle refrigerant (freon) are allowed to recharge an air conditioning system. OR 1. Extremely dirty air filter restricting the airflow through the inside unit. 2. Extremely dirty (clogged) cooling coil restricting airflow AND IF IT IS LEAKING If you do not see ice build-up on the larger copper tubing (covered with a black, sponge insulation) when you run your system, then you probably have a clogged drain line. A clogged drain line is usually caused by algae build-up inside the drain line. And yes, there is something you can do to prevent this condition. Algae is a living plant and will grow in your drain line until it clogs the line. The air handler provides a cool, damp environment for development of molds and mildew and if left untreated these growths can spread into your ductwork. If only moderate to light buildup is present then there are chemical disinfectants specifically designed for use in air handlers that will kill the existing mold and mildew and control new growth. These disinfectants are safe and very effective and are applied by simply spraying into the filter intake and by placing "Algae Strips" directly in the drain pan. If the coil has mold or mildew present then it also should be treated. Make sure that the face of the cooling or evaporator coil is clean so that air can pass through freely. HOPE THIS HELPS :)

Ford festiva 1992 model overheating

check the thermostat, it is in a housing in the cooling system. there is a physical thermal valve which closes when the engine is cold allowing the water to only circulate the engine block, when the engine gets hot it it's supposed to open and then allow the water to cool off through the radiator. this part is known to clog or fail after time so will need replaging.
you will need a new one and a gasket to ensure a good seal. check on replacement of thermostat.

I hope this was useful.

Clogged AC for BMW 118i

You have to remember, your A/C system is a sealed system. If there are contaminates in the system, where did they come from? The only moving part is the Compressor. You might be able to get by for a little while with just changing the orifice tube, or expansion valve and recharging the system. But inevitably you will need to change the compressor. Anytime you install a new compressor you will need to change the orifice tube or expansion valve and the accumulator. Dryer. You will also need to have the evaporator core and condenser flushed out. While I have a system open I also change the o-rings at all fittings. This will ensure many years of trouble free operation.

Blowing oil out of rear mane

hi do you know for sure its the rear main and not another leak,maybe higher up? on alot of these cares nowadays you can have cam sensor seals leaking causing the same apperance as a rear main seal leak. My sugestion is to clean off your engine and find a part store that sells engine oil die. and poor it in your engine fill tube, With a florecent lamp you can actually follow the die up the engine to its highest point of leakege. This is were the problem is that needs attension. Know if its still a rear main seal. Then when you install it you must take exstreme precautions not to roll the lipe seal-use a small flat piece of plastic to help guide the lipe around the end of the crank shaft, then add red locktite to the outer edge of the seal. you must fing a installer that fits the circumfrance of the seals outer edge but not contacting the rear cover. hint exaust adapters from parts stores work really well. use a 2bye4 cutt off over the end of the adapter and drive it in straight do not let it get unlevel or it will not seal. Let it dry for at least an hour before you putt your fly wheel on. I also want you to check the positive crank case ventilation system. PCV valve clogged restricted air inlet tube usually bye air filter running to valve cover. with the engine runninigat idle you should feel a suction on your thumb at this tube. if notthe system is clogged and you will need to remove valve cover and clean off or above the splash shiel made to the upper part of the valve cover.this system keeps the engines internal pressures from getting to high witch causes premature seal damage and gasket failure. Hope this helps from Joe.

Water not going in moter ,white smoke blowing from rhe tail pipe

Hi, If water is Not going your cooling system, check : - cooling liquid level ( it should in normal level) - air lock in your cooling system ( You can run your ca for minutes then top up liquid to disable this problem) - water pump ( it should working normal and has no leaks on its seal)
White smoke blowing, please check : - Valve seals for leaks - Oil seals for leaks - Compression on your combustion chamber
You will need a basic knowledge of car system to do above tasks.

Small hole in bottom of radiator drips

There are products out there like stop leak that MIGHT stop the radiator leak. However... the only real repair is either to have it soldered (if the end caps are not plastic) or replace the radiator all together.

Adding a product like "Stop Leak" most often starts to introduce other problems to your vehicle like a future water pump seal failure or clogs in the smaller water passages in the engine block, heads and manifolds and the thermostat heater bypass hole. Anyone that has ever done any major engine repairs will know immediately if stop leak was used in a cooling system.

The best fix is to replace the radiator.

Many radiators today can not be repaired

Stop leak is in most any auto parts store. Just be advised of what you can expect down the road.


1. warmer than usual engine operating temps
2. water pump seal failure
3. heatrer core clog (no heat)
4. passenger heat control temp valve clog (no heat)
The choice is yours. Personally I would not do the "Stop Leak" treatment attempt. Sometimes it works other times it does not.

1997 Camaro is overheating. I have replaced both the Water Pump and Thermostat and still overheating

what do you mean by overheating? puking coolant out? or just high on the temp gauge. the rad fan should come on if the a/c is on. if the a.c is off, the fan doesnt come on till 220f or so. when the fan is on, there should be "roasting hot" air blowing through the radiator, if not the radiator is not flowing coolant.

I have a 2004 Nissan Xterra, the AC blows out cool air only when I accelerate. I already added more freon but the problem did not improve.

sounds as if you may have a leak somewhere and your losing freon(134). advance and Carquest have a sealing kit that can be added to your system to seal leaks in the system, it comes with the hose. do not OVERCHARGE your system, as you can rupture seals, and gaskets.
