Replace the pump. Don't forget to thank the engineer to came up with this piece of junk. I'm doing one now. Heats up and throws white smoke. Starving for fuel, turbo's kick off. Cat codes, DPF codes. The guy already spent $4500 on turbo's and every sensor on the exhaust system. No fix.
possibly, but im thinking that the turbo is worn, it fails to seal correctly when cold, but as it gets hot and the metal expands, it seals itself and starts to function properly. Also, not letting the turbo cool down before turning off the engine can warp the turbo, causing sealing problems when cold as well. Infrequent oil changes can cause premature wear and tear.
You have either a bad pressure switch or your system is to low on freon. pressure switch is located near evaporator close to fire wall to check use jumper wire across the 2 terminals if compressor turns on add freon the chances are that the switch is ok. make sure to add the freon on the low side of system and use a gauge on the fill hose (the better fill kits have the gauge on the hose). If you get cold air out the vents and then after a bit it doesn't seem cold you have a leak in the system. Make sure to use the correct type of freon should have a sticker under the hood. I think it should be R-134A but make sure the sticker will tell you the correct type.
Thanks for using FixYa
Hope this sheds so light on your problem
hi a common problem usually caused by idle control valve it may need replaced or tested as they cant tell the diff between a cold and warm engine causing the auto choke not to work when cold another thing to try is frost plugs
Usually it is close to the water pump.Two smaller size hose should come out from under the cover of the thermostate .You probably need to remove the top cover to see the thermo valve itself.If the thermostate not working(or not working temporary)then main radiator in the front of the wehicle stays cold.Thermostate can get stuck,it means that it is working sometimes,sometimes not so the hot water cant get to the radiator to cool down .Pressure goes high up ,water runs everywhere.There is one more thing can cause such problem on your car.If the water
reaches a certain temp then a ventilator should turn on on the radiator
which suppose to cool down the water.If you drive fast enogh then the
travel wind can do the same thing .So probably your ventillator stoped
You would have to measure the pressure to determine if it's pressurized correctly. The compressor won't run if it's low. What happens when you push the a/c button? Can you hear/feel the compressor kick in? It seems like in most cases it's the compressor itself or the compressor clutch that goes. It's way too common in vw's...
