Hi. In order to find the leak, technicians use a device to find freon gas leaks throughout the system, I really don't know the price of the device, but it really works. And depending on where they find the leak ( hose, elbows, screws, assemblies, pump, etc.) they repair. It could range from $200-$800 or more on repairs. If you can find the device and buy it, it's really worth it, and you can do it yoourself because it's not difficult at all. Just make sure when you replace everything, Put one can of R134a gas with lube, so you can lubricate the parts, and the rest with normal R134a.

My air conditioner is not working on my 2005 Nissan quest se. what may be the problem? it was working fine yesterday. there is plenty of antifreeze


anti freeze has nothing to do with air conditioning
shaking at speed is , tires, wheel alignment, suspension parts or balance and again is not related to air conditioning
working one day and not the next suggest a leak in the ac system and now the low pressure switch is not allowing the compressor to work
So to cover your problems
take the car to an accredited auto ac specialist shop and have it checked for leaks and gas
then take it to an accredited suspension for a thorough check of the front end , then have a wheel alignment done

What causes the "Reduced Engine Power", "Service Stability Control" and "Traction Control" warning lights to come on?


the "Reduced Engine Power", problem causes the PCM to disable "Service Stability Control" and "Traction Control" turning on the warning lights to come on for those systems . The reduced engine power is because of a problem with the electronic throttle control system or as GM calls it TAC system . Reduced Engine Power Mode
When the PCM detects a condition with the TAC system, the PCM may enter a reduced engine power mode. Reduced engine power may cause one or more of the following conditions:
• Acceleration limiting--The PCM will continue to use the accelerator pedal for throttle control, however, the vehicle acceleration is limited.
• Limited throttle mode--The PCM will continue to use the accelerator pedal for throttle control, however, the maximum throttle opening is limited.
• Throttle default mode--The PCM will turn OFF the throttle actuator motor and the throttle will return to the spring loaded default position.
• Forced idle mode--The PCM will perform the following actions:
- Limit engine speed to idle by positioning the TP, or by controlling the fuel and spark if the throttle is turned OFF.
- Ignore the accelerator pedal input.
• Engine shutdown mode--The PCM will disable fuel and de-energize the throttle actuator.

2005 Dodge Durango Front AC won't blow cold, back air works great


could be the front door for the front air needs to be propped open so that is blows cold, could also be the a/c compressor or a clog somewhere up front in the vents... it could be numerous things, but i would say try propping the door open, if that doesn't work try replacing the compressor... haynes makes the repair manuals for the truck, goto auto zone, pep boys, etc. and pick up the book they have step by step instructions on how to fix the most common problems and all the different systems of the durango... the book will be very helpful, cause if you do your own work you can find everything easily..... hope this helps you...

Look thru the grill area at the front of the car. You will sea a radiator-looking thingy. This is the coindenser for the A/C system. Look closely for any indentations or holes... Usually, if there is a hole, it will be oily around that area where the hole is. The condenser is very susceptible to getting perforated, and as soon as a hole pierces the aluminum, the gas will escape. The condenser is very difficult to repair, if not impossible.
