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 2005 Corolla is exhibiting a P171. I have sprayed the MAF element with throttle body cleaner and the check light stays on, even after a long journey. Is there a correct way to spray the MAF?


If you have reset the check light and it comes back on and stays on, then it may a problem other than a dirty MAF. That code (P0171) means "system too lean (bank 1)" It may be that there is an air leak that is causing a lean condition. Look for intake air leaks, vacuum leaks, and exhaust leaks.

Have a 1992 toyota corolla. I put a can of freon in it for my a/c. It got cold for 2 days and then only just blow out cool air. What can be the problem?


air conditioning sytems are assembled with o rings at each connection to seal the system, as these dry rot and crack over time, they fail and cause leaks in the system. you added freon , but then it leaked out slowly over the next few days. a garage can inject colored dye into your ac sytem and find your leak, but it will cost you.

2005 Toyota Corolla air conditioner is cold but


The air flow does not 'increase' with the recirc button pressed. The fan motor blows at specific speeds, no matter whether fresh or recirc is selected. The recirc feature is there so that you do NOT admit 'fresh/hot' air from the outside into the AC box. In short, the recirc feature is to re-use, or, recirculate the existing air in the car. When it is properly working, on a hot day, the recirc selection should drop the internal temperature at the center air vent about 6 degrees lower than with the fresh selected.

Have you checked to se if there is freon in the system? If there is no freon, the compressor will NOT run.

Just a suggestion, not a car expert, might want to check the charge level of your freeon or the compressor.

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.
