Take a look at the radiator. If there is no paint over-spray on the radiator the paint shop most likely removed it for painting. In the process of radiator removal all the coolant would have been either dumped or recovered. Additionally if the radiator was NOT removed look at the rigid AC lines around the radiator. They may have dinged one with a sander and punched a hole in the line. Usually leaks are easy to find as the tubing will have oil on it where the hole is. IF you find a rigid AC line or fitting anywhere in the engine compartment with what looks like oil on it, that is where the leak is. Other things to look for is the electrical connector for the AC clutch. Make sure that the connectors are connected to the clutch and to the pressure switch on the system expansion tank just behind the radiator. It will have a clear window that the internal hole is about the size of a paper punch dot. On top of that there is a pressure switch that must be connected. Make sure that connector is connected.
My thoughts on what to check.....or what could be the problem.

I need to remove paint of a sweater

If it is not to much you could use a light grade sandpaper (light grade but high number 120 grain or 180 maybe even a 240, really fine grain). The finer the grain the less the chance of causing noticeable damage to your sweater. Works good if you drip paint on a carpet too. Some light damage to the sweater may occur though but it is definitely not noticeable when used on carpets (to give you an idea about how much).

Vehicel cranks but wont start

check and bleed out any air from all bleed nipples. crack the injector line at the injectors and crank over until there is fuel dripping from the nut. tighten up as that will bleed out the ait in the injector lines . Ensure that the injector timing is correct and on the injection mark

When its humid and my concrete garge floor sweats my escape cut out .only when its humid out.

It seems possible that moisture may be building up under the hood of your car and forming around the coils and plug wires. You might try leaving the hood up when parked in the garage for a couple of days to see if this helps fix the problem. If this helps go to your parts store and buy a can of spray ignition sealer and spray on top and bottoms of plug wires and boots, then the tops only of your ignition coils. do this only when the engine is cold and not running Let the spray dry completely before starting your car. If you still have a moisture problem coming from your garage floor you might want to have your vehicle undercoated to stop it from rotting out your frame and floorboards as well. Or another idea might be to paint the floor with a concrete sealer available at your local paint or hardware store.

Speedfight 2 runing problem

If it's dying when you let off the throttle, just turn the throttle adjustment screw in a little till it keeps running without your foot on the throttle. I don't know just where this throttle adjustment screw happens to be, but that's what needs done.

My beetle 2001 radiator fan no working and aircond also come out without cool air, engin overheating problem. i send to workshop and check wiring and fuse all in good condition. please give advise what...

Because there is no supply to the fan , it is not working. So you need to check the fan with a direct link to test , is working check the RELAY box for the fan relay, next check on the thermistor, the control circuit of the temperature controller to trigger the fan relay. Also check on the fuse to the relay unit.
The AC cooling must be checked only after this circuit is working as a hot engine will not give a good result. cehck the gas pressure, check the pumping pressure to confirm the compressor.
Also the eveporator, condenser, pressure switch must be checked independantly.

Hi , i have a 2001 vw bettle that wont start ,i ve had the car 7 months and got the starter repalaced 3 times now as they telling me thats what the problem is (same garge all 3 times)but still happins 2...

3 starters in 7 months????? sounds like your getting "riped off!"
find a new garge,,,,if the battery is good and spins the starter over well then my gess is they just "cleaned the starter off" and called it a new one?? the main causes for starter faults is,,,bad battery's,,, not charging the battery up,,,,loose battery leads,,,bad engine earths to car body,,, very tight engine's? or holding the key over trying to start a car with a flat battery and the starter is only just grunting the motor over!
this causes a lot of heat in the starter motor,, and it burns out!
if it happens again fit a new starter with more power like a heavy duty one? but go to a new garge to get the work dont,, and if you can,,,
watch them fit it! but do tell them why you wont to see this starter fitted

Windows stoped working

blown fuse most probable cause. Replace fuse and then check each window in turn to see if it can be determined which causes the symptoms.
