My Pontiac is leaking antifreeze from the breathing hose on the coolant tank, please help

I'm not completely clear on what you mean, but here are some things to check.
1. Check the hose from the radiator neck to the overflow tank for cracks or leaks. If it's leaking the tubing can be purchased at an auto parts store. It's very inexpensive.

2. If it's leaking a lot into the over fill tank this could be an indication that your radiator cap is leaking at the seal, allowing coolant to bypass the spring on the cap and through the hose into the coolant overflow tank. Replace the radiator cap, these are about $10.

My ac is leaking freon rapidly in my 2002 impala and i need to fix it. What may be the problem and how extensive is it to fix?? If its the compressor where is it located and how hard is it to replace?

Most A/C leaks are due to worn out seals, and there are seals throughout the entire A/C system. I recommend you have an MVAC certified technician fix your leak and recharge your system. Working on A/C systems can be fatal, and if you don't have the proper equipment and safety devices you should consult a professional.
  1. First, any refrigerant still in the system must be evacuated using the proper evacuation equipment. Releasing refrigerant into the air is illegal, dangerous to breathe in, and damaging to the environment.
  2. In order to find the leak, you will either need a Leak Detector or Leak Detection Dye. The best method is the Leak Detector. The inexpensive method is to use Leak Detection Dye.
  3. Once the leak is found, it will need to be repaired by replacing the bad seals, or the damaged equipment will need to be replaced, e.x. evaporator, compressor, etc.
  4. After the leak is repaired the system will need to be checked for leaks again, but this time with a Vacuum. If it holds the vacuum, the leak is fixed.
  5. The system can now be oiled as needed and charged.

Jeep is leaking antifreeze and check gauges is on

Look under the hood and under the truck and locate the leak. Hopefully its just a hose as those will be inexpensive to replace. Your check gauges light may be on due to your car overheating from lack of coolant. Hope this helps!

Smoke is coming out of the car but its not overheating so what's the problem?

what does this smoke smell like? oil? coolant?, if it smells like coolant then u have a leaking head gasket, not all head gasket leaks cause overheating, so the fact the engine is not overheating doesn't mean you don't have a head gasket leak.

The air conditioner does not work

Most common cause is a lack of refrigerant in the system. Without a minimum of refrigerant, the compressor won't turn. With a few inexpensive tools from the local auto parts store you can diagnose the problem yourself by doing a simple pressure check. If you don't wish to do that, most service stations can now diagnose the problem which is likely a small leak in the AC line. By law, they MUST repair the line prior to pumping new refrigerant into the system. If you DO choose to do it yourself, a refill kit (R-134A and/or R-134 (leak detector)) and a guage is all you need to refill the lines.

Air conditioner does not blow cold air

if it's not cold, then the refrigerant has leaked or it's low. A local shop can evacuate the system and check for leaks prior to filling with refrigerant. They can easily locate leaks in hoses, fittings, etc...
It's quite possible that there isn't any leaks may be low on refrigerant, but it's best to check...saves $.

most likely, the problem is you are low on refrigerant. A local mechanic can recharge the system for you, however have them check it for leaks prior to filling.
You may have a cracked hose, loose fitting, etc that is causing the refrigerant to leak out.
The systems are designed to stop operating the pump when the refrigerant gets low as well..
So have a local shop pressure check the system and repair any leaks, then purge and refill with refrigerant.

A/C will not blow in 2000 Jeep Wangler

preform and electrical check of the necessary componets, check AC fuse for blown fuse, check fan switch and fuses for power, if you have ac guages check ac refrigerant pressures, you have a pressure cycling switch that if low pressure exits in the system will not alllow the ac compressor to activate and circulate the refrigerant... it is a common practice to bypass that to install refrigerant, but you may have a leak so if you suspect a leak then add leak detector and refrigerant at the same time , look for any leaks and repair as needed... if you are unsure then have a qualified ac tech preform thses repairs...

A/C blows warm air

Have them look at the doors for the heater box. There's a computer that runs them & they might need to be re-calibrated. If the seal leaked again on the compressor then ask for a new compressor. They shoulda done that anyway. Takes more time to change that seal than to replace the whole thing.
