I have a 2003 ford taurus i was driving it like the engine started shaking so i turned off my air conditioner but it just started to lose speed but will not get over about 5mph


run fault codes and find out which sensors are faulty. The loss of power indicates that it is in limp home mode . Check oil level and coolant level at the radiator cap.

Engine overheats and heater blowing cold air


You have air trapped in system , change thermostat , bleed air from system , let it run hot while adding coolant with blower full blast on all front and rear heaters .

While running the air conditioner the Thermostat goes hot, when I turn the air conditioner off it goes back down. The low coolant light came on but the coolant is full. What else could it be?


To start with, you are talking about the temp gauge. The thermostat is in the engine.
The coolant system could be low or have air pockets and still look full.
First thing I would check is the cooling fan, then the coolant level.

I was driving my car on a hot day, turned the air conditioner on, the hot light cam on. I then pulled over an called the tow truck. I had the motor flushed and put antifreeze in it, replaced the reservoir...


"Leaking out" also means that you are not developing pressure. It is also the pressure that keeps the temp under control. There is a tester that puts pressure on the cooling system, that is the next step. something is leaking somewhere.

Can I drive a 2003 saturn L200 without serpentine belt?


As crazy as it sounds, I don't see why not. Based on my limited knowledge of a 2002 L200, the power steering is run off the back of the camshaft and the water pump is driven by the timing belt. The only things the serpentine belt runs are the A/C and alternator. Obviously you won't make it very far running without an alternator, but at worst you kill your battery. Serpentine belt on a 2.2l 4 cylinder 2002 L200 has nothing to do with the water pump or power steering pump.

Engine coolant


you may want to try finding a tube of graphite usually sold at wal-mart in the automotive section that will clearly state it is for coolant systems; the graphite will build up around the hole and usually fix the leak; if not, consult your local mechanic to find the root of the problem... most likely a leaking coolant line, hose or radiator

My 1995 Jetta is running fine without the ac on. After I turn the ac on it may drive fine for a while then all of a sudden it loses alot of power and spits and sputters. What could be the problem. Thanks


make sure your plugs and wires are in good condition.also fuel and air filter.the engine has to be well tuned up.because air conditioner compressor put a little load on engine.if engine is not well tuned.the AC will pull it down.cause it to lose power and run rough.

Car drove great one day but the next day it started overheating after driving about 5-7 minutes. Had the thermostat changed, the coolant reservoir and cap changed, coolant changed twice, hoses checked. ...


ok, is it losing fluid? check the floor board by the passenger seat, up under the dash, is it wet? Your heater-core may be shot. The core is tucked up behind your glove compartment. If it's plugged, water won't circulate and won't be able to be cooled, causing it to overheat.

2000 Jeep Cherokee Air Conditioner


If compressor isn't kicking in, check the connector atop the a/c accumulator, beside the coolant recover tank, in the engine compartment. That connector is atop a black bottle, and the connector goes to the low pressure switch. These switches do fail, and you can jump a wire across the connector terminals to see if the compressor comes on (engine running). As this circuit provides part of the ground path from the compressor clutch, if the switch is open, the compressor will never turn on. If the switch is failed, it can be replaced without opening the a/c system. Just disconnect the connector, unscrew the switch, replace it, and reconnect the connector.
