Actually the pressure reader i think is sensing pressure from the compressor.You may have a leak on the low side,between the condenser and the tank.

How long for the ac fan to start working? Ive noticed that the fan does not work when i turn the ac on, can this cause my car to overheat. I check the temp and coolant liquid both seems fine.


the ac fan starts as soon as the ac is switched on
the fan is provide cooling of the condenser before the radiator to prevent high head pressures in the ac compressor
it is the fan at the front of the car mand does not affect engine temp
there is a radiator fan between the engine and the radiator that will not start until the coolant temperature reaches a set temp at which point the ECM switches that fan on
if that fan is not working when the engine is hot , check for fan, coolant temperature sensor switch , fan relay, fuses or problem ECM

Cooling fans run at cold start


That may be normal depending upon what you are doing in the vehicle. If you have the climate control system set to defroster, most vehicles run the AC system to avoid fogging. Anytime the AC system is engaged the cooling fans must run. Make sure you don't have the AC or defroster on and try again. If the fans still run it could be a faulty fan switch.

Mystery plastic cap in my 2004 Kia Rio. While


IF you use a lot of engine oil then the engine rebuild was not done correctly and the oil is being burnt off in the cat converter. Any more than 1/2 pint in 5.000 miles is excessive. IT would be wise to have the ac pressure tested as you may have high head pressures being generated which will stop the compressor from working. The high head pressures may be from the fact that the fan in front of the condenser is not working or the coolant fan is not working for the engine causing the rise in temp at idle as there is no cooling air through the radiator for both the ac and engine.

How do i change the coolant/flush radiator in 2004 ford freestar


Open the petcock on the bottom of the radiator and allow the old coolant to drain.

Close the petcock.

To refill you will first fill the degas container to the cold fill range, leave the cap off the canister. Turn all of the heater controls to warm and turn fan to full. Idle the engine until the thermostat opens. Top off the coolant and put the cap back on. Idle at 3000 RPM for several seconds and then idle again for a minute or so. Check the level and then repeat this 4 times, or until heat is coming from the front and rear heat units.

If you want to flush the system you will have to remove the thermostat and hook up your flush system to the radiator hose at the thermostat housing. Follow the instructions on your flush system then put the thermostat back in. Follow the instructions above to refill.

2004 ford freestar air conditioning compressor seems to be coming on however no real cooling at all, could the compressor be bad or is there something else that could cause this issue, I know it is a...


Actually, it is very common to be low on coolant. In fact that is the most common cause of your problem. If you are not comfortable doing this your self you will need to go to a shop and have the AC serviced. It is fairly easy. GO to Auto Zone and purchase one of the refill or cool boost cans with a gauge on it. Locate the low pressure side, this is easy in that the fitting on the can will only fit on the low pressure side. Start the vehicle and set the AC to MAX cool. Follow the directions on the can to fill your system. R134a works on pressure in the system. If the pressure falls the cooling falls that is why you felt the cooling better when driving on the highway than you did in traffic. Make sure you don't overfill the system. If you do it is possible that you will damage a seal and end up having to replace the compressor. Good Luck.

All you need is a 13mm boxed end wrench. The tensioner pulley is the one all the way on the bottom towards the rear of the van. You can reach it under the van. Slide under the van in front of the passenger front tire and you will wee the pulley. Put the wrench on the bolt and pull towards you to release the tension on the belt.
