Question about Heating & Cooling

Open Question

Jeep Grand Cherokee 2001 3.1 turbo diesel. Low coolant level light comes on on dashboard after 10 seconds. I have replaced the sensor and checked coolant level but light still comes on. Vehicle has only done 56000miles but I had light come on about 12 months ago and problem was cylinder head gasket. Had that done and all was well until light came on again about month ago. I've had cylinder head tested and ok. Any clues as to the solution would be appreciated

    I do not have a lot of faith in your ability to solve my problem if you think its to do with air conditioner. I await your reply.

SOURCE: My goodman heat pump has

After system has been running 10-15 minutes, the discharge air temp should be 18-22 degrees colder than the air being sucked in. If the air is more than 22 degrees colder then the problem is with air flow. Check filters, blower speed, make sure all vents are open, is indoor coil clean. If the discharge temperature is less than 18 colder, then the problem is with the refrigerant portion of the system (low charge, improper flow control of freon into coil) the key is if you have an orfice or a TXV (Thermal Expansion Valve) to control the flow of refrigerant into the coil. TXV's are known to fail with intermittant problems, however, most 10 seer systems do not use a TXV, they use and orfice which could have debris in it affecting the flow of freon. Hope this helps. When you rate my solution, please keep in mind that I am a technician that normally diagnoses equipment by checking it out in person. I do the best that I can with the information that you provide me on Fix-Ya.

Thank You,

No, heat exchanger is most likely cracked. Time for a new furnace. I cannot see your reply due to some tech issue w/ the site, so it may be a day or so before I can reply again. Please leave feedback for me if appropriate. Thanks

SOURCE: outside unit will not come on

could be the slow blow fuses in the disconnect box. check them for conntinuity if you don`t get continuity replace the fuses. check for power @ the contactor. the contactor is where the wires from the diconnect box attach to the ac. check both sides make sure your getting 240v be careful not to touch the wires ofcourse. if your getting power change the capacitor. may need a hard start for the compressor as well.

My wife's 2001 pt cruiser is overheating, I have replaced both high and low relays and is still overheating, my question is, is there any other relays that I can change? Also the fan will not come on

If you changed the sensor and added coolant to replace the loss, you may still have air trapped in the system so if you are sure the thermostat is functional (these fail pretty often), remove any pressure caps from the overflow or radiator and let the engine idle (while watching the temperature) to see if the coolant level is falling; if it does, the system still has air trapped in it but should gradually pump it through.

98' Town Car over heating with the ac on?

BigDeeman, this can happen for several reasons:

Low radiator coolant is the primary one. Followed by a clogged radiator that is not allowing enough coolant to circulate, to keep the engine cool when the AC is running.

The first one is easy to troubleshoot and solve. The second one, will require a pressure test and from there, the draining on the coolant and flushing of the entire cooling system. Then replacing the coolant to the proper level.

Hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem.

I have and overheated promblem with my 1993 jeep chorekeee country . What can it be

Chris, unfortunately, it can be caused by a host of things: Low radiator coolant, a clogged radiator or engine thermostat, a leaking coolant hose, faulty radiator cap and the list goes on and on. However, it's best to start with the easy things, like Low Radiator Coolant, because that's easy to check. Just make sure the engine has cooled before removing the radiator cap. While you're waiting for it to cool, look in the plastic coolant overflow tank. If there's no coolant in it, more than likely, when you remove the radiator cap, you'll see the coolant level is low. However, if it appears full, it may be that the radiator is clogged and needs to be flushed and new coolant put in. If the coolant in the radiator looks like old coffee grounds, nine times out of ten, the radiator is clogged and seriously needs to be flushed.

Also,pull the oil dip stick and look at the color and consistency of the oil on the dip stick. If it's a milky color, your engine has a blown head gasket and that's where the coolant is going.

As I said before, it can be a "host of things". Just start with the simple ones first.

Hope this helps you in starting to troubleshoot the problem If so, please leave me a good rating. Thanks!

My 2005 jeep grand cherokee laredo keeps overheating. I changed the thermostat, antifreeze, and purged the air from the system. but it still overheats. Help!!

hi, if you have changed all the above, you need to have a good look for signs of leaking coolant check all hoses and around the water pump, if you find no signs of leaks then this could be bad news as the only other problem could be with the head gasket, to be sure you need to get a gasses test done on the coolant you can get this done at any garage for a small fee, but to me if you have no leaks then it points towards head gasket.

does the temp reach the red at the top or does it force the coolant back out the bottle before the temp reaches hot,

can you hear the rad fan cut it if its electric fan, check this then let me know ok

My 1994 jeep sport is overheating when in park and at stops i replased thermostat and the belt what do you think it could be i looked at the head gasket well around it and didnt see anything coming out i...

Check your coolant level first. If your coolant is low, look into the possibility of a lower intake gasket leaking coolant into the oil, or worst case scenario, a head gasket.
