91 Mercedes 300 E has R12 ac system that is no longer blowing cold. A faint bit of cool air sometimes shows up but it can hardly be called cool. Is there any additive out there compatible with R12?

Propane does the same as R12. I don't recommend it though(highly volatile). Best to convert to 134R. Last time I converted an R12 system was about 10 years ago. I would tell you how to do it, but I could get in trouble because you have to vent out the R12 first. I don't even know of a shop that has an R12 unit anymore. Good for you, they still have the adapters to go over your ports and the 134R today is compatible with the old systems oil. No need to change the compressor, dryer, and expansion valve.

Is there anyway to bypass the AC with a smaller serpentine belt?

Yes there is several ways the diagram for bypass should be under hood on the fan shroud now if not there then the belt should minus diameter of ac fly wheel

now some engines dont have the belt bypass now this is when you have to google bypass pulley for your vehicle its not hard to put on there only around 30 dollars online had a van in same way two weeks later my engines pulley was being sold up to then my engine didnt have the bypass system for belt cause the mechanic who put engine in put the alternator and ac on the wrong sides so i sold my van then as i said two weeks later found the pulley

its easy diy for bypass pulley remove ac and put pulley in its place same bolts and pattern

the level is droping but there is no sign of a leak? look hard and good. than check inside car also to make sure heatercore is ok. also note smell and color of exhaust. white exhaust could indicate an internal eng leak. cylinder head gasket or crack.

My car is 2003 Z4 3.0i. The coolant leaked today and I think it is empty now. The temprature lamp was in red zone and I saw liquid leaked on the ground more than 30 inches. I had to stop the car every 30...

I would not drive the car until the problem is fixed as the engine will over heat an seize up. You may have a leaking radiator hose or heater hose which you can fix with little trouble. Put water in the engine start it up and look for the leak.

How to put aircondition prion for 1993 honda

Take your car to a specialist and have them check your system for leaks ot other problems. They can then recharge the system if everything checks our. The old Freon leaked out for a reason. If you don;t fix the problem, anything new you put in will just leak out again within a few months or perhaps weeks. Additionally, they've switched from R12 to R134 and your vehicle might need to be converted to handle R134.

My 2001 ml320 ac is not as cold as before.

If your motor belt is still good and the AC clutch is not loose, you need to change your Freeon Gas. It has probably leaked out. It some times happens when people open mess with stuff that releases the gas accidentally. However, they places which act professionally, they will put a little gas with some blue colored die and have you come back in 2 to 4 weeks. If you have a leak, the die shows it. Leak will be repared, more gas in put in and you'll be fine for a few years.

Car overheating -

If you didn't change the thermostat, I would recommend doing so. They can stick and deny or restrict water flow through your engine. They're easy enough to replace and inexpensive. Make sure you get a new gasket with it.
Hope this helps... Good luck!
