Question about 1994 Honda Accord

1 Answer

A/C compressor not engaging

Two years ago, on the freeway, my car overheated in traffic, and I pulled into a parking lot. Upon inspection, I noticed a good amount of water spilling out from under the car. Radiator fluid level was good. After this incident, A/C no longer worked. AC clutch doesn't engage at all. Today, I checked if there was pressure in the system. The system is pressurized (not sure how much pressure), but the gas coming out feels warm. My next course of action is to check fuses, but I doubt this is the problem, given the incident with the water pouring out from under the car. I assume this water was directly related to the compressor somehow. Any suggestions as to the problem would be appreciated.

The cooling fans are supposed to come on when the ac is turned on,for some reason ,they did not,and the relief valve most likely let the freon out to keep the compressor from locking up,it will most likely need freon,and most likely the high pressure switch in the ac line will need replacing,this is what tells the fans to come on when the ac is turned on.

P0300: SOMETIMES rough idle, shake a lot OR less power above 50mph then got this code

Spark plugs in your car are good for 100,000 miles. try changing fuel filter and add a can of B&G 44K fuel additive. This stuff is the best on the market and only available at dealerships. It conditions fuel pump and injectors, also absorbs water in fuel (methanol). Try this first, your car is too new for any other problems. this should help drivability and fuel mileage. If Nissan does not have B&G, I know Toyota does. Also stay with 91 octane fuel. Check oil and coolant often. do not risk overheating in traffic, watch your gauges......

1996 K3500 4x4. Just bought it 1 week ago. When turning in a parking lot or out in traffic, when in the turn theres a loud snapping noise in the rearend. What could this be?

May I suggest that you take someone with you into a Parking Lot; and one of you walk along with your
truck, while the other drives and makes the turns.

By doing this you will be able to make a clearer and better description of this noise.

I noticed in the picture that you pull a trailer. Was the trailer hooked up at the time of this noise???

Best Regards,

Engine over heating.

freeway driving gets more air across the radiator
so the temp sender unit is faulty as this activates the fan by completing the fans circuit!
replace it & al should be A OK !!
