You need to check for leaks first. WalMart sells a kit to recharge your a/c system with R-134a and a stop leak sealer. Make sure your core valve is tight. You'll need a longer valve tool than what you use for your tires. Good luck

2001 Oldsmobile Silhouette Premiere - windows fog off and on inside.


Could be a blend door problem. You would need fresh air from the outside to keep the windows from fogging up. If the blend door that controls outside air gets stuck or fails to open, you may not get fresh air. The ac compressor would also need to run every few minutes to dry the air hitting the windshield.

I have a 2000 GMC safari van 2-wheel drive. When it shifts to 3rd it seems to jump into neutral. What can cause this? Changed transmissions and it is doing the same thing


My local transmission specialst tells me that ALL GM van transmissions run hot. Especially within the Safari/Astro design - that doesn't reflect the wind very well (compared to today's smaller mini-vans). He recommends ATF aux cooler (LPD Design) be installed in all Safari / Astro vans - even non-towing vans. For example, Hayden 678 or 679 LPD design.

re: http://www.summitracing.com/parts/HDA-678/

If wondering, I installed Hayden 679 in my prev AWD Safari van and installed Hayden 678 in my wife's smaller size GM mini-VAN. re: http://i178.photobucket.com/albums/w251/Spike99-Pictures/Montana%20Van/AuxTransC- ooler-UpperSupport-2.jpg &http://i178.photobucket.com/albums/w251/Spike99-Pictures/Montana%20Van/AuxTransC- ooler-LowerSupport-1.jpg

As a suggestion, install the LPD aux cooler design (re: Tru-cool or Hayden 678 or 679) in your "running hot" GM van. These ATF coolers work great in my GM vans...

Don't know what the warning light means that keeps coming on! It looks like a Christmas bulb or upside down acorn . . .


The heiroglyphs mystify me also. First move would be to check the
picture key in your owner's manual section pretaining to the instrument cluster specific to your car. Without actually having that in hand or being specifically familiar with the car, it would only be a guess.
Owner's manual should explain this in enough detail for the average
user to become familiar with the function of their vehicle.

Air conditioner not working


If you are still getting air from the vents but it is not cold then you either have a bad compressor or just need to recharge it.

With the engine on in idle, turn on the AC and watch the RPMs. They should drop about 50-100 when you turn it on, also listen for the sound of the compressor kicking in. If you notice either of these things then the compressor is probably fine and the AC just needs to be recharged.

Head to your local auto parts store and pick up a recharge kit. The kit will have pretty good instructions on how to recharge it. If you are having difficulties following them just let me know.

Engine overheating


Hi and welcome to FixYa!

Few things to look at to resolve the overheating problem. Here are the following:

- Radiator is clogged
- Radiator fan blower is weak
- Water pump is worn out which may result failure on coolant cycle
- Cracked cylinder head

These must be replaced if found out faulty or damaged. Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!
