No. It would really have to overheat in order to prevent the AC from working. But the AC should make the engine fan go on, and the AC compressor pump clutch to engage. Do you see this happening? If not, it is probably a fuse, the AC relay, or the AC switch.

My heater stop heating it do blow cold air add antifreeze it did start until then


if what your saying is that your cars heater stoped blowing heat , and you saw that your coolant was low , you added some and heat returned but then stopped sometime later ,??

if this is so , 1st you'll need to determine the reason 4 you coolant loss , if its not dripiing on ground then its being consumed inside engine someplace , ck your cars oil for color and clarity , if its cloudy or milky then id say you have a cylinder head gasket that needs service , when yourcars engine is cold (only) remove the radiator cap , ck to see if tiny bits of black looking strings of oil are there at cap area , if so this more proves you have a head gasket issue , if all is good and your just low on coolant from lack of service, its also possible that system is now locked up with air trapped in engine e, this will require you to add more coolant over a several day period doing it only when engine is cool , of a service shop can do it in a day with a special tool they have

I have a 2005 model ford ka 1.3 l rocam motor.I need to fill the motor every day with water as it consumes water and over heats a lot,I have to add water daily,what could possible be the problem


Why would you use any vehicle that, first, overheats
& obviously looses coolant/water

That simply makes no sense & you know your going to
ruin the motor on any given day

The water has to go somewhere
SO--where would it go if it did not leak out

It goes into the cylinders & out the exhaust

Why--- a failed head gasket & on some motors, the
intake gaskets, depending on design

Filled Coolant reservior and radiator Drove trailblazer at highway speed no cooling problem. When slowed down in traffic temperature increased to about 220 and higher, could hear coolant bubbling in...


If there is bubbles occurring even inside the top part of the radiator (where you have the coolant put in), you may have a leak on your head gasket. You may be loosing coolant through the engine.

WHY IS MY 98 PONTIAC SUNFIRE OVER HEATING? HAS NEW RADIATOR COOLING FAN NO LEAKS IN COOLING SYSTEM.


A thermostat that does not open and close would cause these very symptoms. Since it does not allow coolant to flow through the system, it will make the engine overheat. Since it won't allow the "heated" coolant to pass by your fan, the heat will continually blow cold air.
Stop driving the car immediately, becuase the next step will be some blown gaskets - especially head gasket. Other possible reasons can be as follows:-- It could be just low on coolant. if it is then add coolant... with low coolant the water pump can not move enough coolant to supply hot coolant to the heating system . also if its low the motor will over heat fast..... If the system is full then you may have other problems.. such as 1) bad thermostat 2) bad radiator cap ( not holding pressure so it will leak coolant) 3) blown head gasket . 4) bad heater core (leaking coolant out.. check the floor board under the dash on the passenger side.) 5) bad hose or clamp. Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

How do i add coolent to the Rad, when there is no rad cap.


if the rad has no cap then there should be an external expansion tank, with a small water pipe running to the rad, this circulates the water, make sure you dont get confused with the windsheild washer tank, may sound silly but has been done lots of time!

Over heating of engine


ok if you have to keep refilling the radiator you may hav a leak check under your car for any coolant on the driveway in the morning, also when you turn on the a/c it draws power from the engine, so what im thinking is that gradually over the day you are leaking coolant once you turn the aircon on its making the engine work harder with less cooling causing it to overheat this is all assuming you are leaking coolant

1997 Chevy Cavailer Heat stoped working


Check your coolant level. If it is low and there is no obvious signs of a leak do a compression check on the engine (possible blown head gasket) or the fan / thermostat is not working properly.

Overheating engine, but no water leakage; when overheating the fan for the heat in the car remains cool.


Hi.
A number of possibilities...
1/ lack of coolant in system,
2/ coolant supply to interior heater blocked / controls jammed,
3/ failing thermostat switch to engine fan
4/ failing water pump

#2 may be separate problem and I would check out #3 - after #1, of course!
Hope this helps - if not hold the rating and add a comment below. Cheers, D.
