Question about 2003 Toyota Corolla

1 Answer

AC problem My AC goes from blowing cool air for around 5-10min then it blows warm air. I changed the cabin filter, but that did not resolve the problem. There was no light that came on indicating any AC problem, but I haven't checked any fuses yet. One thing I noticed is that the coolant is only below the full line about a 1/4. Could it only be that a coolant flush is needed?

Yes you can flush out the coolant system, also you might need to recharge the AC system by using the Refergerint R-134A (which you can buy at autozone or other auto part stores) and charge the 134A on the Low side port.

Why does my heat blow warm air then it turns cold


its VERY likely that your heater core is getting stopped up.

The heater in your car works by circulating hot water from the engine into a copper or aluminum pipe coiled up in the dashboard. The heater/airconditioner's fan blows across it and the hot air comes out of the vents. This is why the heater doesn't work right away when you first start the car. It usually won't work until the hot/cold needle in the gauges is starting to rise up.

If your mechanic recently replaced the thermostat, its possible that there is air in the system which will result in less antifreeze in the car than it should be. If this is not the case, the heater core is probably stopping up and will require expensive replacement if it cannot be flushed clean.

Check to make sure the car is full of antifreeze IN THE RADIATOR, AND THE OVERFLOW JUG. Please be very sure there is NO AIR in the cooling system as well.

A/c smells funny it seems like the clutch is out


Is system blowing cold air? if low gas system will blow warm and smell, When was the cabin filter last replaced, the cabin filter is used for inside air, make sure its clean,

I would start by having the system checked to make sure the gas is full and dye added so if system goes warm again the dye will show the leak.

My libertys heater only blows heat when I'm giving


first off all if a/c gas presssure is low or no gas at all ( because of some reason you have already lost it) it acts exactly how you you describe. kicks in and out. but cant cool air inside. (first make dealer check it for leaks and let them fill it with proper yellow flourescent dye added gas)

limited het in cabin heater is another issue. if engine is warm and still not enough heat inside, we can say that you have a clogged cabin heater or air pocket is in hoses connected to cabin heater. you need to bleed cooler radiator inm front. you need to raise infront of car and bleed it with bleeding screw. after this check the heat again if still not enouh heat you may need to replace cabin heater.

if engine is not warm enough when you drive slow or let it idle. this means you have a broken thermostate or it is stuck half open.

AC was blowing cold. Now only warm air comes out.


May just need to be recharged, if r34 is too low, ac will not kick in, Wal-mart sells recharge kits and cans of r34 (insctructions are on kit)...expect to pay around $50 total if you do it yourself. If that doesn't work you may have to replace the AC compressor.

I have an 03 venture 3.4 the problem im having is heating


the air flow does not have any thing to do with the thermostat
make sure you had the right cabin air filter and put in the right dirrection
the air flow is control by three devices calls mode door actuators, if this goes bad then you may not have enough air flow to a certain area

My a.c. unit under the hood is cycling cold but I am not getting any cold air in the car. It appears to be blowing outside air in the car. why?


Hi,
It turns out the cars thermostat is sticking, as the engine gets hotter, the ac kicked out. Some sort of sensor turns off unnecessary stuff (like the compressor) to save it. I changed the thermostat, and no more problems. Let the car sit in your driveway idling, ac on. If the ac goes off, spray the radiator with water, and see if comes back on; then it's the thermostat. Another possible thing could be this air filter (cabin filter) is clogged. Usually it is located in the plastic duct work in the car behind the glove box. The filter was put in newer cars to filter out pollen, etc. getting into your car. I would check the cabin filter first. Either blow it out with compressed air to clean it, or leave it out. A new filter runs about $40 and it's a dealership item
