  • Doug Warne Check your OBD 2 codes First this will give you ideas of what happening ie bad oxgen sensor telling me look for vacuum leak or poor spark ignition or poor engine compression, possible injector leaking
    Mar 19, 2014

  • Doug Warne poor compression tell me the engine maybe out of timing and or valves or worn or burnt exspecially when engine is hot and it dies
    Mar 19, 2014

  • Doug Warne a cylinder leak down test would be revealing for valves or piston rings
    Mar 19, 2014

    Mar 19, 2014

  • Doug Warne CHECK FOR AIR BUBBLES IN COOLANT as piston compress air if it leaking pass the headgasket seal into the coolant jacket this will cause air bubbles and you may loose heat out of the heater core...i have seen this with cracked heads also so if this is the case have head checked at machine shop
    Mar 19, 2014

  • Doug Warne check the oil from the dip stick smell it see if you smell gasoline this is telling me thin oil, possible injector leaking gasoline
    Mar 19, 2014

    Mar 19, 2014

  • Doug Warne get a spray bottle fill with water and with engine runing spray water in coil packs and spark plugs wires to see if there cracked or frayed Electricty is lazy it will use the water as a ciricut and go to ground through the water this is telling me cracked coil pack or plug wires engine will began to miss and fumble while running

  • Doug Warne these are some tricks i use to help diagnosis problems....hope this helps
    Mar 19, 2014

  • Doug Warne As far as the A/c Heater Blower i would first check the Fuse in the box with a test light, and i would check all the fuses remember you have a battery side and ignition side of the fuse box if the fuse is blow replace with manufacture Amp Fuse and if new fuse shorts then i would look at blower motor draw
    Mar 20, 2014

  • Doug Warne Check your battery Cold Crank Amps with a load test meter most parts store will do for free hoping you will buy a battery and if batter test not good if you choose to not to replace your alternator will be charging constentently and the trio diode board in your regulator located inside the alternator in most applications these days will short then this will cause a battery high amp draw so your battery wont start in the am when your late for work..
    Mar 20, 2014

  • Doug Warne If your battery is loosing charge overnight or anytime you can simply take your negaitive Cable from your batter and put a test light from the negiative cable then touch your neg. terminal and if test light illuminates you have a draw and bad draw so take amp meter and test to see the draw in amps if high amp draw i would first look at the regulator and remove the 12volt singe wire and see if draw disappear if draw is no longer then 99 percent your regulator has shorted

Take the cage off prestoheatdish


Once you've unplugged the unit do this. Read this whole answer before you start.
Push down hard with a thin flat screwdriver in between the cage and the dish and flip it out. Some disk rim deformation may occur but you can bang it back later. Be careful and it will be minimal. For tough cases you may need two screwdrivers a short distance apart. Once it starts coming it should pop out quickly. There is a pin at the bottom so start at the top. This is basically the same technique as removing tires from a bicycle rim if you've ever done that.
When replacing the cage, after cleaning, put the bottom pin in at the bottom first and work your way up from the bottom on each sides with your thumbs. Press hard to snap it in. At the top a pair of pliers may be required.
There, not too hard was it?

You should look in the air handler( Where the indoor blower is located) or in the plenum (where the duct system originate at the air handler) for any dead and rotting rats. Residential central air systems are sealed (uses circulated air only) and do not use outdoor air.

There's a bad smell coming from my Amcor AF9000E NanMax portable AC unit. It smells like the smell that you would find in a damp, musty basement. Is there anything that I can do to illuminate this...


Yes there is. First turn the unit OFF & unplug it. The remove the air intake filter and clean it. After that, remove the water collection bucket and was it in warm water and mild dish washing liquid. Rinse and thoroughly dry. Doing this should help to eliminate the odor.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

EZ3612 - spins for couple of times then stops with burning smell and mode light blinking 13 times


Per the service manual, if the mode light blinks 13 times, there's a bad dryer sensor or thermostat. I'm not sure if that related to your problem but it's a start.
