My recollection, 01 LW, is there is a drain hole in the engine compartment, bottom of the firewall, just forward of the passenger's feet. Condensation should be dripping out of that. Take it to a shop, have it put on a lift and run a big pipe cleaner in and out of there, something is blocking it. these cars are also prone to heater core leaks, are you sure it is water and not antifreeze?

07 forenza (seems all posts are for this 1 suzuki)
a problematic car for sure....?
in what country, car has 6 engines, but 1 in USA>
so cant help you lacking where you are, (name a country,not your IPaddress)
we have the 2.0L engine, in USA< this is a USA forum so......??

ok the computers in your car are way smarter than say 1988 Samurai.
the PCM that runs the engine, for SURE cuts AC to keep engine from self destructing!! AC can do that,,,,,,
want a cracked or warped engine head ?
no.
the PCM cuts the a/c, and if engine is overloaded. or overheated
so forget the A/C
fix engine overheating (primary issues)
and guess wha?t , that gets worse, so delaying the fix
a $5 part compounds to $3000 new engine.
why not just get car fixed.???
"we cant teach you 50 years of engine problems in 5min time."

Thermostat or water pump?


Sounds like a thermostat is being sticky. A water pump issue should cause the vehicle to over heat quickly while driving if it is not pumping.

How do I determine what is causing white powdery like substance coming out of my auto air conditioner, especially on maximum air.


Do not use the AC till you consult a local garage as i think the AC is leaking gas and this gas is dangerous to say the least .

where do you live. Never put straight water in a radiator even during the summer. Do you see any leaks around the water pump, radiator hoses, or in the passenger side floor inside also at the firewall where the heater hoses go into the heater.

Why does my car overheat sometimes?


sounds like thermostat problem. of course it will heat up faster if you run a/c because motor is under more stress. follow the big hose from radiator and where it goes into the top of engine is your thermostat

Car turns over doesnt start then nothing at all


Happened to me several times in Florida, once in Canada. 1999 Chrysler Seabring Convertible Lxi 2.7. Computer locks out ignition for random periods. Took it to a Huge dealership in Florida, paid $350.00 for transmission shaft speed sensor stuff. Fixed it. Fine since. 1 yr. later body control module went (computer). Expensive to fix.$(800.00 just for dealer only part) Air door control, tachometer, and a rear window affected. I'll live with it as the 'failsafe' for loss of AC control is AC is 'Defrost/Floor'. Fan works fine.

1986 Ford Thunderbird Heater Core leaking...


According to the book, 1 day. You'll have to schedule the event with your handy motor shop.

I'd like to do the repair myself on my own 1987, and according to the Haynes & Chilton's books, the repair requires removing the dash and evacuating the AC. I'm not willing to evacuate the AC, so for the last ten years I've been living without a heater. Lucky for me I'm in Florida!

A.C. NOT BLOWING COLD


My AC went out suddenly and it turns out I got a major leak in one of the tubes in the AC system and thus warm air. When I bought the first can of refrigerant it didn't take much to get the pressure back where it should be. After some good advise I learned that my compressor was kicking on and off (you'll hear it cycle on and of every few seconds or so) and not STAYING on. Turns out because the system was drained of coolant I had to fill the tank a little at a time and actually go over the recommended pressure to force the air out of the line and get enough coolant in the system to kick the compressor on.
Turns out it was all for not...given the hole in my system it just leaked right out. I live in GA and still don't have it fixed; I was quoted $800 to fix it and figured I could live with it.
