There is a lot of reasons why it is doing this,but if you are trying to add freon,and the ac compressor keeps going off,and back on,then it will take a while for the freon to go in,because the ac compressor is cycling on,and off,this maybe cause it is low on freon.

My Toyota razz 2e is having problems with wet plugs and looses power all the time...what could the problem


Could be a blown head gasket which allows coolant to enter the combustion chamber. With the engine cold, and only when cold, start the engine with the radiator cap open. Watch the coolant in the radiator while opening the throttle briefly. If the coolant fountains or moves significantly, the head gasket is most probably blown.

Hard starting smell antifreeze


Souinds like beginning of blown head gasket. could be due to corrosion on either head or block. "Diesel knock" could be due to excess compression from water in cylinder (will explain steam, antifreeze smell).

I have coolant coming out from the over flow tank hose when engine is hot is that normal


Not normal no, the overflow tank is there to apply coolant when the engine is cooling down and everything is contracting and to accept coolant when everything warms up and expands. If there is coolant leaking ensure that the coolant is at the correct level when the engine is cold. If it still overflows it could be the radiator cap not holding the pressure of the cooling system and letting too much into the overflow container? :)

I am having a problem with heat in my 99 RX300. When I turn it on, it blows cold air. I can't seem to get the heat to come on...


Check coolant level, if that is acceptable,, then the problem may be a thermostat or the deflector mechanism inside the heater which should be checked by a qualified mechanic.

I borrowed a friends car (2002 Thunderbird). The coolant gauge spikes from acceptable range up to hot "H", red light comes on for about 20 sec and then turns off and gauge goes back to normal. ...


What you are describing sounds like there is air in the cooling system-Start the engine when it is cold with the cap off of the overflow and turn the heater up to full blast-make sure there is coolant in the reservoir, and keep an eye on the gauge, At the point where the thermostat opens, the level in the overflow should drop-top off the overflow filling to the 'full hot' mark on the side of the tank. Put the cap back on and drive it, watching the gauge. If you still have issues, you may have a problem with a malfunctioning thermostat. If it is alright after doing this, make it a point to check the level when it is cold again later to be sure the coolant tank is up to the 'fill cold' line.

Cabin Heat is Intermittent / Fluctuates / Cycles


You may have air trapped in the lines to or from the heater core.
If you (still) have a real radiator cap on the radiator, remove it with a cold engine, start and run the engine allowing it to warm up while watching the water/coolant level. Make sure the heater control is set to its highest heat setting while doing this. If it is trapped air, you may see it 'belch' after the engine is warm and the engine thermostat is open. Refill as needed if this is the case.
It's more difficult without direct radiator access and may require several cycles of hot/cold to allow refilling through the overflow.

Heat only blows out briefly then changes to cold air


Heater core could be pluged up, try flushing it out, it could have sedament build up restricting flow into heater core. Also make sure its full of coolant.

'98 Century--Sporadic over-heating


Be sure to have heater (not defrost) on when refilling rad with coolant, and leave cap off until rad fan has come on & off 2 or 3 times, then replace cap. Airlocks are common on vehicles cooling systems, and will cause symptoms you are describing.
