I don't think I'd go back to that shop.

If it is truly the belt, first try a new belt, but you may also need to replace the tensioner pulley.

I don't think the brakes are related, it may be the wear sensors, indicating that it is time to change the pads.

    Does your a/c work at all? If not, it might be the clutch on the a/c compressor locking up because of a bad bearing causing the belt to first squeal and then break. Open the hood and try to spin the pulley on the a/c unit without the belt and engine off. If it doesn't spin by hand then the clutch bearings are bad. Very hard to change because you need special tools. Hope this helps.

No heater controls no blower or ac fuses good 89 jaguar xj6


My 93 xj6 doesn't blow or anything but I found that if I kick the blower under the string wheel. It comes on. Then it's blowing cold on the dash and hot out the center counsel. Where do I kick to fix that? There are buttons that light up by the steering wheel. That look like the seat heater button. Is there a way to choose to make the thing blow cold in front and hot in back? 989-657-2563

1998 dodge Ram 1500 4X4. The heater/AC blows out of defrost vents only, I am told this most likely a vacuum line, If this is true where is the vacuum line located.


In the engine compartment, locate black vacuum hose that runs from brake booster check valve to intake manifold, there will be a small vacuum hose attached to check valve at the power brake booster check valve. This is the vacuum line going to the heater control unit,check the hose all the way to the firewall, repair any leaks you find. And that should take care of your problem.......GOOD LUCK

89 740 volvo GL heater failure


Several suggestions:
  • Your thermostat needs replacement and your dash gauge is not reading correctly. Cheap and easy to put in a new thermostat to confirm.
  • Your heater core has a deposit of sediment or minerals restricting the flow of warm coolant in which case the system may benefit from a backflush.
  • The heater water valve has a blockage restricting flow and may be in need of replacement;
  • You have a vacuum leak which causes the heat vent control to work improperly;
  • Your firewall-side heater water valve was installed backwards; The arrow on the valve points to towards the firewall inlet, not back towards the engine.
  • Control cables from the heater control unit to air mixing doors are maladjusted or broken. In heater-only cars (no AC unit), the water valve (which is inside the cabin, above the left footwell) is controlled by a cable from the air mixing door.
  • Check the heater hoses, I have seen several 700's where they are swapped over and it results in ZERO heat. See the section on Water Valve Replacement for correct installation instructions.

There is antifreeze odor when AC comes on and has not been running hot until today. The engine idles rough and cuts off when backing up before this happened and the brake and ABS light comes on also. Where...


it sounds like the heater core. look for a wet floor board on passenger side. in the meantime, keep your overflow bottle full & climate controls off when driving van in this condition untill fix.

Ac and heater


I believe that on the climate controled cars, the heater core always has a supply of coolant, instead the car uses a blend door to keep air (A/C or heater depending on the setting you choose) from passing into the passenger compartment. If you have a problem, you should check to make sure that blend door is operating.
