Cold air is more dense, so that makes perfect sense. Also, a turbo compresses the air, which heats it up, so you lose some of the power gains, which is why intercoolers are so common.

Will not start when hot after about 15min. If I pour cold water on injection pump area it will start


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.

When cold turbo works when hot not working


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.

I hav a 1997 model nissan b14 it has problem in starting in cold like in morning it chokes makes sound n offs.it wrks afta tryin many times wen it becomes hot can anyone hlp me out in dis


Hi,
You need to have the cold start thermosensor. This enables the computer to tell when the vehicle is cold and hot. It tells the ECU to turn the fuel mixture up or down.
Hope this helps
Thanks

Have no power to a/c compressor for my 1993 turbo diesel non-power stroke f350. checked fuses they are okay. jumped hot wire and ground over from battery and the compressor kicks on.


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

I have a 2008 pontiac g5 and when the air conditioner is on it is blowing hot air instead of cold


sounds like you need to have your AC serviced, alot of times the compressor wont kick on when you are low on freon.

Where is the themostack on a h100 turbo engine?


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 working.

2002 Beetle 1.8 Turbo A/C quit blowing cold


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...

02 impreza wrx problem with turbo PLEASE HELP


This is not the turbo it is the over-powering the clutch, it happens in 5th because that is when most worn clutches slip, it is the biggest load, replace your clutch.
