Question about Toyota Corolla

1 Answer

The air conditioning appears to have lost pressure and there is a hissing noise by the glove compartment. The handeling also appears to have gor worse with the sterring getting lighter at the front. The clutch also makes a small vibration as you release it. I was told there was a sticky fluid stock to the clutch and that it would not cause any harm to the car.

Sounds like you have lost the front seal on the compressor... This is probably causing the hissing sound your hearing as the A/C clutch is the actual cause of the seal going out and also causing a difference in your stearing... I recommend you take it to a shop to be checked for sure... The sticky residure if probably Refridgerant Oil...

2001 nissan altima engine noise


Sounds like a basic vac leak.
You should be able to take a piece of heater hose or the hose from a vac cleaner and listen around the engine compartment for the leak.

Air noise coming from under bonnet audi a8 d2


Sound is completely normal on all Audi's.
Your A8 uses an Orifice tube to regulate the pressure between the two halves of your air conditioning system. A hissing sound is normal after a shut down as the system equalises. Usually lasts about a minute and is more noticeable on warmer days.
Location on an A8 is on the very right hand side of the bonnet just under the windscreen - that's where the hissing will be coming from.

99 ford mustang behind glove compartment hissing


Could be several diff things, might be as simple as a leak in the air condition duct work, turn off the air when you start it and see if it goes away. Also there is a vacuum line under the dashboard, you will have to remove the glove box to trace it down. GOOD LUCK!

My 2003 chevy trailblazer makes a noise like pressure is releaseing as soon as turn the car off, What is this?


It is probably just your air conditioning. If you have your defrost on it also runs your ac pump. So if you have your ac or defrost on and you shut the vehicle off you will hear a hissing noise for about 10 seconds or so which is normal.

What is the toyota number for the cabin air


The cabin air filter is actually pretty easy to change. Here are the steps:
  1. Set the air conditioning system to Recirculation. The case for the cabin air cannot be removed with the system in the Outside Air mode.
  2. Turn the engine off.
  3. Open the Glove Compartment
  4. unclip the damper rod on the ride side of the glove compartment. To unclip it usually it is just a squeeze tab but sometimes it is a phillips head screwdriver.
  5. The glove compartment now must be squeezed together at the rear to allow the tabs to be released. Just let the glove compartment hang down.
  6. Through the glove compartment opening, locate the filter cover and remove.
  7. Remove dirty filter and replace with the new and reverse steps 1-5 to put it back together.
Shouldnt take to long usually takes me about 5 minutes to change it.

As for the toyota cabin air number im not to sure on that but you can go to any parts store and pick up an aftermarket cabin air which will save you a bit of money, same quality..

Air condition noise


It may have gotten debris(leaves and such) stuck in the fan/blower housing. If it sounds like a bike with a piece of paper on the rhim(rattle), then that most likely the case.to get rid of it, you need to pull the whole blower housing out to clean it thoroughly.
