Hello! I need to know the size of the capillary tube because it was broken and now the refrigerator does not reach the freezing temperatures. thanks and please apologize me for my bad english


If the condenser is not throwing heat into the atmosphere you are not doing any cooling. The dessicant in a filter/dryer will only absorb maybe 10 drops of water. If you had water in the system, I would evacuate the refrigerant, and use a vacuum pump AND a hair dryer to heat up the components to get the water out., The water does not want to evaporate even in vacuum, and heat will help.
If you are throwing heat from the condenser, it is transferring heat and the evaporator should get cold. If it is not cold enough, then it is boiling too 'late', and may need to have some refrigerant removed.
Capillary tube length is custom for each application as it is the constriction that allows pressure buildup and boil and length affects the restriction capacity of the capillary.

VDC Light stays on, then start to heats up


test the scanner and computer test for most effective result.
However see if fan/waterpump drive belt is slipping. Coolant is frozen
inlet or outlet water hoses are clogged or kinked. Coolant tube is blocked. Temperature gause is defective. Water pump defective. Fan is too far from radiator,(close it) .Defective water distribution tube. replace the tube. Fan insuficient blade are or pitch replace with large fan or with more blades.
God bless you

The water boils out of the coolant surge tank, and also is over heating


try change out thermostat maybe staying shut-radiator fins plugged wash out outside with hose and water. radiator may be plugged in cooling tubes flush out cooling system-check fan and water pump belt-fan bearings or water pump could be going bad and not moving water

Over heating


over heating can be caused by a number of things. your water pump could have died or the gaskets could have went on the water pump spilling your antifreeze every where. in which case you need to replace the water pump and gaskets. when you change the water pump you should replace the thermostat because they usually fail at the same time. your thermostat could have locked closed. in which case replace the thermostat. i recommend getting a fail safe thermostat so when it fails it gets locked open and then the car dose not overheat. your belt could have broke so your water pump wont turn. replace the belt. your radiator or hoses could be clogged with rust and sediments in which case you need to flush your radiator and change the anti freeze. you may be just low on anti freeze... so fill it up and see if it leaks anywhere. your tubes could have came off, be loose, or cracked and leaking; so replace or tighten them. your radiator could have a hole in it or leaking some where.. replace radiator. if you drive on dirt roads a lot the radiator could be full of sand and dirt could be full of mud if taken off road. just rinse the radiator out with soap and water. are your floor mats full of water or antifreeze? you could have a bad heater core. replace heater core. or you can cheat and take the two tubes off the heater core and splice them together. (which will leave you with no heat). your fan may have gone out so it wont cool the radiator. the last thing i can think of is very low or no oil in the motor. top off the oil.

With the water pump removed, you have to heat the body of the water pump. There is a O-Ring that seizes the tube into the water pump. Sometimes you can just loosen the bolt and heat the pump with it still bolted up the engine. Use some pliers to wiggle the tube while pulling the tube. When you put it back together replace the o-ring and add some rtv sealant around the o-ring too. This helps the seizing problem. Hope this helps

How to change the water pump on a ford escort 1.3gle 1986 model


  1. Let me know if you cannot see diagrams(happens sometimes) or if you have any questions
Just to make sure. I assume that you are seeing coolant leakage from around the water pump assembly.

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Place fender covers on the aprons.
  3. Drain the cooling system.
  4. Remove the accessory drive belts.
  5. Remove the timing belt cover.
  6. Use a wrench on the crankshaft pulley to rotate the engine so No. 1 piston is on TDC of the compression stroke.
Turn the engine only in the direction of normal rotation. Backward rotation will cause the timing belt to slip or lose teeth.
  1. Loosen the belt tensioner attaching bolts, then secure the tensioner over as far as possible.
  2. Pull the belt from the camshaft, tensioner, and water pump sprocket. Do not remove it from, or allow it to change its position on, the crankshaft sprocket.
WARNINGDo not rotate the engine with the timing belt removed or serious engine damage could occur. The 1.3L and 1.6L engines are of the "interference type," meaning it is possible for the valves to contact the pistons if their reciprocation is not carefully timed and controlled. An engine allowed to spin freely without the timing belt could bend valves and scuff pistons almost instantly.
  1. Remove the camshaft sprocket.
  2. Remove the rear timing cover stud.
  3. Remove the heater return tube hose connection at the water pump inlet tube.
  4. Remove the water pump inlet tube fasteners and the inlet tube and gasket.
  5. Unfasten the water pump to the cylinder block bolts and remove the water pump and its gasket.

  1. Make sure the mating surfaces on the pump and the block are clean.
  2. Using a new gasket and sealer, install the water pump. Tighten the bolts to 30-40 ft. lbs. (40-55 Nm) on 1981-87 models, or to 15-22 ft. lbs. (20-30 Nm) on 1988-90 models. Make sure the pump impeller is able to turn freely.
  3. Install the water pump inlet tube and the inlet tube gasket and fasteners.
  4. Install the rear timing cover stud. Install the heater return tube hose connection at the water pump inlet tube.
  5. Install the camshaft sprocket.
  6. Install the belt from the camshaft, timing belt tensioner, and water pump sprocket.

  1. Tighten the belt tensioner attaching bolts, then secure the tensioner over as far as possible.
  2. Install the timing belt cover.
  3. Install the accessory drive belts.
  4. Refill the cooling system and reconnect the negative battery cable.
