Hi

The first thing to check is that the engine cooling fan comes on when you turn on the air conditioning, then you should check the condition of the radiator fins. If they are clogged with debris (dead insects, leaves, etc...) then you will need to get a pressure washer onto it through the front grill and try to blast it clear.

When you switch on the aircon, it puts extra stress on the engine, which causes the fuel economy and engine power to drop, and as a result the engine will naturally run hotter, so it needs a bit of help to cool down in the form of the engine cooling fan.

Regards

Geordie

Try looking under the hood around the driver side by the wheel well. Or on the driver side under the steering wheel, or slightly to the left of it.

You either have a problem with the break system or your emergency break is on. It could be stuck, even though it is not engaged

1987 Toyota Celica won't start.


make sure its gettin spark, fuel, and air.. in any piston drivin engine there are four strokes...intake(air and fuel are sucked into the compression chamber) compression(where the intake stroke has hit bottom dead center and started back up, compressing the air and fuel) powerstroke(at the top of the compression stroke the spark ignites the compressed air/fuel and slams the piston down hence "power stroke" and last but not least Exaust(once the powerstroke has hit bottom dead center "bdc" it then begins its return to the top pushing out the exaust gasses) and then the cycle repeats itself..
