    while the system was being recharged we also noticed the gauge would start out as full and slowly drop to the bottom.

    the answer I got does not seem to have much automotive background behind it.

Hello ford man,

you have a very BIG leak....

compressor would kick in as you put the can of 134a and then as it leak out, compressor would not kick in again....

try compressed air first..its a waist to use 134 right away...

i hope that solved your problem..pls rate me..tnx..drcool

My 2008 X5 has recently stalled a few times when at a stop sign and wont restart for 20-30 minutes. I have narrowed this down to happening ONLY when the AC is running. Any ideas?


This is a long shot, but try this. It may be that your battery is very low on fluid (acid water). The car runs off the battery with the alternator constantly charging it. If it is too low on acid fluid it will not take enough charge. At highway speeds the alternator will put out more amperage and compensate for the weak battery. When the engine is a idle or low RPM the alternator charges less. The AC unit draws current from the battery. AC draw may just enough to overwhelm the weak battery and kill the engine. After the car sits for a little while it is able to crank the engine, partly because the starter, when cool, draws less current. Check the acid/water level in the battery and if adequate, have the battery checked for a dead cell.

94 4.0 dies while driving will start after sitting a while


Sorry to say someone will have to have tools ready to check it the next time it quits running.
Could be a relay, the ignition module, the coil, or anything else that can get hot and stop working.

If done right, i will start displaying any stored dtc codes. tehn let me know what code it shows!

I noticed my ac in my 2004 Corolla with 138,000 miles wasn't blowing as cold in recent months. I've never had the AC serviced in the 8 years I've owned it. So I used one of those 12 ounce self...


If this was happening to me.... I'd goto an airconditioning re-gas centre and get them to check for gas leaks. In my old commodore the Evaporator Core was leaking and causing some of the issues you have mentioned.

2004 Saab 93: A/C doesnt turn off, car now wont start


remove the AC relay to shut the AC off all the time. Not sure why it wont start but you may havea security lockout. Fully charge the battery to proceed.

AC sometimes does not blow cold


recharging wouldtn hurt, a mechanic can tell you the level and if needed, but check also your serpentine belt, it might just be loose and worn and not engaging the condenser properly.

Air conditioner blower stopped working on 2004


If the blower works but its just not blowing cold air, its possible to recharge the AC system yourself. Most auto parts stores carry AC recharge kits. Instructions to recharge the AC are belowl

RECHARGING AC SYSTEM

1.Turn the truck on and turn AC on HIGH
2.Locate the low side AC line (will have a valve and cap similar to the cap on a tire)
3.Insert the oil or R-134A can to the hose (Do not turn the screw to puncture the can yet)
4.Insert the other end of the refill hose to the low side valve
5.Puncture the R-134A can with the screw on the refill hose
6.You should feel the system suction the refrigerant out of the can
7.Check for frost on the AC lines and the air blowing inside the truck
8.If frost develops and the air is cold, you've successfully recharged the system and disconnect the refill hose. DO NOT ADD MORE REFRIGERANT...overcharging the system will damage your compressor and will be less effective


Best of luck and enjoy your vacation.
Greg

Hopefully this answers your question and you're able to get your AC working again. Best of luck.

I need to know how to change auto door lock code on my mercury mountaineer


i dont know if this will help you but to change the auto lock codes on a 94 mercury sablethat is set into your remote keyless entry system at the factory.you can program your own personal code to unlock the vehicle. this code does not replace the prminant code that is programmed into your system.
to program your own code 1) select five digits for your personal code. 2) enter the code the dealership gave you. 3) within five seconds, press 1/2. 4) within five seconds of pressing 1/2, enter your personal code, pressing each digit within five seconds of the previous digit.
the keyless system registers this second code. to open your vehicle, you can now use either code. the module only remembers only one personal code at a time. entering a second personal code will erase the first personal code, replacing it withe new second one.
to erase your personal code 1. enter the original code. 2. press1/2 within five seconds of step 1. 3. wait six seconds
the keless entry system auto erased your personal code and will only respond to the permenent one. i hope this helps
