Im a freak about keeping my cars in emaculate condition, and i service the entire car every 2000 miles. to keep it running strong i like to use synthetic oils, and platinum spark plugs. Also i replace all the sensors and gaskets every year. So it up to how much you want to push it, if you dont want to go as far in depth as me, every 4000 miles i would do it all for sure...

Engine stalls when turning on the air conditioner


The ac puts a strain on the engine anyways but if it stalls there must not be enough voltage to run everthing.could be the alternator or weak battery.

Air conditioner stopped working


Hello
The Engine and Automatic Transmission (not applicable to manual transmissions) in this vehicles drive train are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM and TCM (Power Train Control Module, Transmission Control Module). When a problem like this or other drive-ability related problems occurs the computer stores a record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions to this, like the fuel pump, engine coolant temperature sensor and MAF sensor for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL A TRAINED TECHNICAIN HAS DIAGNOSED THE PROBLEM TO AVOID SPENDING YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY ON PARTS THAT MAY NOT CORRECT THE PROBLEM. Also always check fuel pressure for correct spec for your make and engine type.

Toyota Corolla 1995. Quality of air conditioner reduced when stopped (traffic light) or moving at slow speed (condenced city traffic) No problem on the highway. Checked freon gas and fan. Understand that...


Normal, the ac heat exchanger condenser need air moving across the fins to remove the heat. While moving in town the condenser isn't remove the meat that is building up the it's aluminum fins. Even though the vehicle uses an electric fan. The fan is used to cool the engine temperature. If you Toyota is equip-ed with automatic transmission. The electric fan will need to pull enough air to cool the engine temperature, automatic transmission fluid, air conditioner condenser, and maybe power steering condenser to cool the power steering fluid. Later model of vehicles/trucks are using different refrigerants instead R134A in which you Toyota uses.

The simples way to explain is the ac remove heat from inside your Toyota and this heat is removed by the refrigerants inside your ac in the car. To cool the refrigerant this coolant is removed to the heat exchanger condenser located in front of the engine radiator. So, while moving at 60mph there is enough air flow through the radiator, ac head condenser, and other aluminum heat exchangers. GB...stewbison

I have a 1999 saturn SL and I'm having problems with it over heating when I have the air conditioner. It make noise when I shift in to another gear while the air conditioner is on. It sound like it's...


Yur transmission and your air conditioner are not in common. For your over heating problem check the engine coolant. Make sure the engine is cooled down prior to doing this. You will want to check the coolant levels in both the radiator and the over flow tank. The over flow tank will have marks indicating where the coolant levels should be when the engine is either hot or cold. Alot of engine noises will be heard through the vent ducting because they go to the engine compartment
Good luck:O)

I have a 2004 Nissan Altima 2.5. When I run the air conditioner, it starts to run sluggish. Any ideas will help.


the air conditioner when switched on takes a lot of power from the engine, your air conditioning system is either clogged up or your engine needs servicing
