First 2 settings on air conditioning are not working
What could be wrong? I don't want to spend a lot running around the bush with getting this problem resolved. We live where the temperature has been close to 100 F and can't handle not having a/c in the car. I am just really scared that the rest of the settings are gonna stop in the near future

Re: first 2 settings on air conditioning are not working
I have to assume you are concerned because the cooling isn't as good as it used to be. Go to Walmart or your local auto parts store and get a freon recharge kit that has a Connector hose and Gauge with it. Follow the Directions on the recharge kit.

Disconnecting the battery resets the PCM - engine computer ,an the emission monitors . A drive cycle has to be done to get the monitors to run an hopefully set. That's all you need to do is drive it for few days of different driving conditions - city , highway ,from cold start . google GM drive cycle . OBD Monitor Not Ready
could be many things engine overheating due to waterpump getting bad, could have intake manifold leak,faulty idle air control valve or faulty ignition module or CKP sensor.check see if you have fuel pressure when engine stop,fuel filter could be stopped up or fuel pump going bad, pcm could be failing best bet take car to a garage have it diagnostic checked.because you will spend more money guessing buy lot of new parts you dont need.take car to shop where mechanic has diagnostic equipment some mechanics can fix cars by ear, thats old school mechanics,the new generation vechicles has more complex and has lots of electronic parts, you need special diagnostic scanner to trouble shoot them.
First,as you travel over a rough road that causes the rattle apply the brakes slightly,is the rattle gone now?If so it's loosely mounted brake pads and/or worn brake caliper mounting bolts/sliders.
Rattle still there with your foot on the brake?Then it's usually the sway bar links and/or sway bar bushings.
To check this sway bar noise,disconnect the sway bar links and tie the bar up/out of the way and try that same road.
No noise now? address sway bar bushings and/or links.
Still noise?Might be struts.
If someone tells you,.you have loose lower control arm bushings,have them show you the play in the bushings before you spend any $$$.
There are many things that can cause your air conditioner to not be cooling like it should. It could very-well be the radiator cooling fan if your engine is running hot. It could also be the other way around. An engine cooling system problem can cause the air conditioner to not cool properly. It may be low on freon, it may be that your air temperature control door inside the vehicle is not working properly. It could be a whole list of things.
Most people don't get "ripped off" by MOST mechanics. (although I cannot deny that it does happen) Many people "think" they are being ripped off because the people at many of the repair facilities are just too busy "making money" to take the time to explain to the customer EXACTLY what they are paying for unless the customer specificly asks. Many customers are too shy or timid to ask, then they think they are being ripped off because they leave not knowing WHAT was done to their car or WHY. All they know is that they paid a lot more than they were wanting to spend. In MOST cases, spending ANYTHING on their cars is more than they WANTED TO. Most of the shop owners or managers will be happy to explain it to you if you ask questions. If they seem to have a problem with that, then you should not do business with them.
Hello Struts!!!! In response to your question regarding the struts..it is not necessary to replace the whole strut and spring assy when servicing a weak strut...unless the coil spring itself is incredibly weak or broken.You can remove the struts yourself and take them down to any auto repair shop so they can safely decompress the spring and install new struts.Be sure to inspect or replace your strut mounts with this same movement also. They become dry and start o crack with age and time. These are rubber mounted...that's why they tend to crack with time.If you have any other oncerns you are more than welcome to get a hold of me..HOPE I COULD HELP!!!
