Air con cool for a few days then won't get cool, stop and restart all good


Cars for years have been using a serpentine belt. The compressor only works if the belt is spinning. With the engine running check to make sure the belt is spinning consistently. The alternator or the water pump could be seizing up causing the belt to stop. Check your idler as well. Tension on the belt could be loose and again not turning everything.

My car wont start. I replaced my battery but it still wont start. Tested the alternator and it is good. Something might be draining the battery but not sure what?


Does the engine spin over and not start? Or turn the key and nothing happens?
New spark plugs and wires won't have anything to do with the starter and battery keeping the engine from spinning when you turn the key.
Need more specific explanation. Thanks,

The engine stopped running while driving down the road. It has gas in it. I had my wife turn the key and the engine trys to start but I did not seee the belt turning while the engine was cranking. What do...


I've had an Alternator...that simply died and you just described the same scenario.

You could take it to a parts store and have them bench test it. Most do this for free. But I recommend doing that before I'd simply replace it.

You have not expressed that there was any noises such as clicking, tapping, whirring or such that would be indicating a relay or solenoid or even that the starter went kuuput. If it's trying to start and the belt was moving, my first thought would be to look at the fuel filter, even a few other compenents such as idle air control valves, sometimes these may need to be cleaned, or perhaps even the throttle positioning sensor.

But you say the engine simply stopped while driving, you say it has fuel and indicate the battery is good since it trys to start, but since the belt does not move. The alternator is what I would be focused on. Get it bench tested. If it is low and test show the amps are near or below the bottom scale for it. Replace it.

Hope you find something helpful in this

Good Luck and Happy Motoring

Hi My 2000 Swift 1.3 with manual trans will not


When you say it doesnt start does the engine spin over and not go or when you turn the key it doesnt try to spin and start. this makes a big diffrence, if you try to start it and the engine will not spin to try and start then i would say it may be a bad starter or the battery , i would also have the alternator tested. now if the engine spins over and over but wont start then that may be a few things that may be bad, the best thing is to see if you have fuel and spark this will help pin point the problemto lack of spark or fuel, try spraying starting fluid into throtle and see if it runs a few seconds if it does then its a fuel problem but if it doesnt then it may be spark, this can be caused by a bad module that heats up module i mean an ignition module or can be a bad coil or even the computer but a little testing will be needed to pin down the problem, hope this helps, have a good day.

Whining sounds once engine is running and even when the AC is off!


most likley a pully. Remove the serpentine belt to see if it goes away. Then spin the pulleys by hand and feel for a clean spin.

Or its possible the alternator is being demanded on. When a battery is on its way out the alternator will whine trying to always keep it charged.

I RECENTLY had my engine replaced in my 2001 hyundai Elantra. This 'new' engine supposedly has only 10k miles on it. A new alternator had to be installed.The work was done by the dealer. I have had the...


The odds are the alternator is the problem again. I've installed brand new alternators in the shop that turned out bad. The battery barely had enough juice the crank the car and get it running. Then, the battery was the only thing keeping the engine running with the spark plug until the battery drain completely dead.

If the alternator was working normally, the alternator would have kept the energy up and keep the spark plugs going without the battery's help.

Basically, the battery's job is to start the engine only and the alternator's job is to keep the battery charged and supply energy for the car's needs.
