My heater stop heating it do blow cold air add antifreeze it did start until then

if what your saying is that your cars heater stoped blowing heat , and you saw that your coolant was low , you added some and heat returned but then stopped sometime later ,??

if this is so , 1st you'll need to determine the reason 4 you coolant loss , if its not dripiing on ground then its being consumed inside engine someplace , ck your cars oil for color and clarity , if its cloudy or milky then id say you have a cylinder head gasket that needs service , when yourcars engine is cold (only) remove the radiator cap , ck to see if tiny bits of black looking strings of oil are there at cap area , if so this more proves you have a head gasket issue , if all is good and your just low on coolant from lack of service, its also possible that system is now locked up with air trapped in engine e, this will require you to add more coolant over a several day period doing it only when engine is cool , of a service shop can do it in a day with a special tool they have

The a/c stopped working, it overheats, and it wont start. what is the problem?

Sounds like more than one problem. Not starting is usually caused by a lack of spark or fuel to the engine. Over heating can be caused by low coolant/defective thermostat/rad fan not working ( to name a few ). Ac not working can be the result of low freon/compressor problem/relay/fuse/wiring ( to name a few ).

Knocking noise from motor when you turn a/c on it goes away Also car is over heating what could it be

check the ac compressor mounting bolts for tight the reasoning is that when the ac is off ,the drive belt is relatively loose as the pulley is just an idler but when you engage the ac clutch the belt tightens to drive the compressor and holds the compressor tight against the engine
over heating can be fro head gasket/cracked head---compression test
partially or blocked radiator--replace
low coolant level--check at radiator cap and fill
bad radiator cap--replace
thermostat fault-- check or replace
air lock in coolant system--- bleed air oit
transmission oil overheating putting too much heat in the radiator from the oil cooler (auto trans.)
failed cat converter blocking exhaust--replace
timing --check adjustment

Engine was idling then just stopped appears to have siezed what would cause this

Lack of antifreeze and water (coolant) flowing into the engine. Water pump failure or not enough coolant in the system. Lack of motor oil flowing in the engine. Very low amount of motor oil in your car or oil pump failure.

Car overheating

First confirm that the engine IS actually overheating - steam, no heat to the interior etc. Sometimes a temperature sensor will fail and give a misleading 'overheat' reading on gauge. For that matter sometimes the gauge can fail and give the same misleading reading. Check that the cooling fan comes on when the engine temperature starts to rise above 'normal'. If not check (in order) fan fuse, fan relay, fan sensor, fan. Real overheating is caused by a lack of coolant AND/OR lack of coolant flow. Modern cooling systems are 'closed'. In other words there should be little or no loss of coolant. If the level is significantly low you have a leak....either external or internal. With the coolant topped up to the correct level and the radiator cap on, run the engine and look for visible leaks...hoses, valves, radiator etc. Internal leaks, eg. head gasket will usually be accompanied by white exhaust smoke (steam), hard starting, rough running and bubbles in the expansion tank. Sometimes, though NOT always, you will find the engine oil has a milky look and/or engine oil will be mixed in with the coolant.

Can i run my unit on low coolant? the uninsulated line to the coil is cold it should be warm but the house seems to be cool. I no I am low on coolant and it will be fixed on Tuesday. It has a leak in the...

Yes you can BUT while doing so this is the things that take place:
1. The compressor requires low temp gas to help it cool down. If it doesnt then the compressor starves for refrigerant and over heats. This additional heat breaks down the oil in the system and one of the bye products is acid. This acid eats away at the windings and when its all the way thru you have a short to ground. New compressor time.
2. The compressor also reguires oil to help keep it cool. Low on refrigerant will not bring back enought oil and you could have a mechancial failure. This is also new compressor time.
3. With the system low also will make it run all the time causing the light bill to double.

with all this said, if you have enought money to install new compressor and labor and material and dont mind giving a lot to the electric company, LET IT RUN.
if you dont have lots of money, shut it off before it costs you a lot of money. Hope this helps. Wally

I have a 2000 Mercury Cougar and the gauge inside tells me that the engine is over heating, no heat is coming from the heater when I turn it on, the fan for the engine is running at full blast, the engine...


The overheating and lack of cabin heat both point to a failed engine thermostat which would be stuck closed. At the warm up stage, the coolant stays in the engine block to bring the engine to efficient operating temperature, then it opens and circulates the coolant through the radiator and heat core. If the thermostat is stuck closed, the engine will overheat, and coolant will never reach the heater core, and you will not get cabin heat.

Blinking oil light at idle which goes away during driving could be a low oil level, but may also be a drop in oil pressue. You could have a clogged oil fliter (at best) pickup tube, or a failing oil pump.

Moter making noise now freezer not working

When no gas, compressor will start to pump oil. Once oil pumped, due to lack of lubrication, compressor starts noising. Call repairman to check for gas leak. Thanks.

Seems like you have a stuck thermostat. The lack of heat is from the lack of the thermostat opening preventing flow to the heater core.
