Question about 1992 Chevrolet K1500

A/c problem The a/c indicator on my heating and cooling display began flashing today. My a/c has never worked since I bought the vehicle, but I put 2 cans of freon in it on Friday. It blew cold air for 2 days and now the light is flashing and it stopped blowing cold air. Is it the compressor, condensor, what?

If the compressor is not engaging then you probably have a leak somewhere.The light is more than likely tied into the pressure switchs and ecm.So it is flashing to let you know there is a,low on refrigerant.Charge it up and put dye in the system.Then use a strong black light to find where the dye is leaking...Good Luck!!!

My car cut off several times today, after display the following message engine reduced, car slowing down.

the engine goes into safe mode when information is transmitted
to the control hardware of the engine/gearbox that there is a fault somewhere on the vehicle that has been detected by the sensor
system The act is performed to prevent more serious damage from happening than would occur if the engine was left to function at full power.
The cause should be indicated by a code that can be read through a scan of the vehicle's OBD, (ON BOARD DIAGNOSTICS,) Without access to this code it is difficult to say whether your malfunction is related to heat affecting the car.
The likelihood is that something has been exacerbated by the weather conditions but that the heat is not the cause. Something else will probably have been going on. previously that has worsened with heat.
The engine is obviously hotter in such conditions .....the engine runs hotter....the cooling system might be at it's limit.
Fuel evaporation might be taking place that might cause the sensors to meter functions less efficiently than might otherwise be the case. should have a dealer perform a diagnost scan of the OBD so that you can obtain the code or codes necessary to identify the cause

The m.i.l. will come on for lots of reasons but in my exp. if the car is running fine and you have oil pressure and its not over-heating that you wont damage the car by driving home.

I have a 90 Acclaim, 6-cyl. This week the heat just stopped working & my car began running hot. Put a new thermostat in. While i did that i realized the coolant was low as well. Filled the coolant up....

Your problem is leaking head gaskets or a faulty water pump. Check your exhaust tail pipe for black pungent prestone odor. This is an indication of head gasket trouble. Have your cooling system pressure tested. Good luck!

Unknown 2007 Toyota Camry Hybrid Button

The ECO HEAT/COOL button of your hybrid functions to reduce the consumption of electricity thus, a reduction of fuel consumption. An indicator 'ECO' appears on the air conditioning display to indicate that the mode is on. Of course, with the ECO HEAT/COOL on it'll take longer than the usual amount of time for the temperature to reach its normal or standard set temperature.

Your ECO HEAT/COOL mode won't function if your temperature control is set at 'LO" or 'HI" or if the air flow is in the "floor/windshield mode" or "windshield mode".

Hope this helps.

Car requesting oil even after being filled up.

This message does not mean the engine is low on oil, it means the oil change is due. if you have added oil, it may mean it is now overfilled. This could cause as much damage as low oil, VW have a system on the vehicle that tells you when the vehicle requires servicing, the next message should be inspection 1. these are the VW service schedules. They are worked out on mileage and the way the vehicle is driven. Take the vehicle to your local decent repair shop and get the oil and filter replaced, and remind them to reset the service indicator. After this all will be well.
