2007 Mitsubishi eclipse spider 2.4 blowing warm air not cold What is the paid supposed to be I know it takes 19 oz. Of freon I'm I suppose. To discharge before recharge?

Its best to evacuate the a/c but if you are careful you may be able to hook up your freon tank and lightly charge the system if it works cold just let it be and if when it is real hot it feels warm instead of cold you might add just a little more freon but be careful.

What causes high pressure on the low pressure side of the a.c. unit

Low side and high side pressures are high. Usually indicates an over charged system. do you have a charging guage! if not, go to any auto parts store to get one. advanced auto, auto zone ETC, this guage will tell you the correct amount of freon to put in it, on the low side only.

88 mustang fuel only works for the top half of the guage?

The most likely problem is the fuel level sending unit in the fuel tank. It is a rheostat that is hooked up to a float in the tank. When the tank is kept at 1/2 tank or less than the rheostat stays at that spot and makes a open in the circut. When the circut is open or the resistance is low the guage goes towards full. When she fills it up the float rises to a spot on the rheostat that is not warn yet and works. The fix is to replace the fuel level sending unit in the tank or use the trip odometer to log how far she has gone on a full tank.

My ford explorer will crank but not start. Gas sounds like its flowin through fuel pump what could be the problem

The main thing you want to thing about in a no-start is Air, Gas, Spark, Compression, Timing, and Exhaust. Those are the main concepts you need for a vehicle to start. If it cranks then you may want to start with you charging system. Use a multi meter to read the volts of the battery to see if they are at 12v or higher. If your charging system is ok then the next thing you would want to check is fuel pressure. If you have a fuel pressure guage or even a pen, find the fuel rail and a small cap that screws off. There remove it and press it down with the pen to see if fuel pressure is there, or if you have the fuel pressure guage then hook it up to that spot and put the key in the on position to get an accurate reading. Once there if pressure is low could be a fuel pump, fuel filter, or fuel regulator. Also, pull a plug wire out, and carfully SET IT ASIDE where you can see it, DO NOT HOLD IT while doing this, crank the engine and see if a spark is coming our form the plug. If that still does not point to a solution then its time to check the compression. A special tool is required to this, take a spark plug out and connect a compression guage to read if accurate compression is present for each combustion chamber.

Hope this Helps!

Gas guage shows full after charging batery

Did you remove battery cables while charging? Rmove and make sure grd is clean and tight Turn on the ignition, watch gauge. It should reset itself. If not, start engine and drive around the block. then make sure you park on level ground , then shut off the engine. Did that work? If not, disconnect the battery for a few minutes and hook it back up. Last but not leastm go put gas in your tank. It just might be full. Pranks have been known to happen. Good Luck.

Air guage light

looking in my service manuals it has to be done by the nissan dealer as it uses their scan tool.
if you had tire repaired and put back in same spot then light should have gone off
check your air pressure in all tires if low fill with proper inflation and drive light should go off.
If pressures are good then the sensor in the wheel you had flat in is damaged

97 Silhouette Fuel guage not working correctly

drop fuel tank. if guage moves all around its probably the fuel level sensor on fuel pump assembly in the fuel tank. If the guage stay's in one spot its the guage , replace instrument cluster assembly. you can take just the glass off the cluster and move the fuel guage needle and it will work (if stuck) but for how long? The wires to the guage come from the sending unit to the power train control module to the instrument cluster. pray its not in the wiring.
