check radiator from top to bottom maybe a crack some where in their, well atleast that what happened to my civicAnswer 2I had a similar problem when i first got my 95 Honda civic. On hot days only though. I found that when the fan for the radiator had been replaced by the previous owner, it was wired backwards so the fan was spinning the wrong way. Instead of blowing air to the radiator it was going the opposite way. The A/C being on caused more strain on the engine which lead to the overheating.
put on ac in car and over heats
You can put AC in most any vehicle with an aftermarket AC system.
There are a number of things that could cause the overheating issue. If the overheating happens immediately, it's probably the water pump. If this happens only when it's hot, see if it happens only when the AC is on because then it could be the an auxiliary AC cooling fan that has gone bad.
If the engine is overheating, running the ac will make it overheat faster. The ac only cools the inside of the car, it actually adds heat under the hood.
Your AC should not cause your car to overheat. Your car probably has a different reason that it is overheating. However, your AC adds additional heat to the engine. Your car wants your AC off until you get the problem fixed. You would have a similar situation if you sprained your ankle while you carried your backpack. Someone would tell you to put down the backpack until you got your sprained ankle taken care of.
only when it is on, it causes slow acceleration
Problem with ac drawing to much current.
You can, but you still have a cooling problem that needs rectification.
A little, the ac pump will put a draw on the engine more than without the ac on.
Yes you can put AC in a Metro but I don't recommend it. My Metro has AC but if you do put it in it will slow your car down horridly and it will cause your high MPG Metro to drop down to that of a normal car. So it's sort of a comfort vs practicality debate :)
Clean water should be used and mixed with the proper coolant for your car.
Make sure the AC isn't over-filled.
I had a ford contour that overheated a lot. Took it to several mechanics and no one could find a reason to why it was overheating. Since I couldn't fix the problem, I just kicked on the AC when it started to run too warm and that kept it at normal running temp.
Is the secondary radiator fan coming on when the AC is turned on?
It is overheating. Probable causes are blocked filters, working too long (excess duty cycle) ot the system needs regassing.
I assume you are talking about the car`s temperature gauge. The reason you are seeing this is because the ac condenser is in front of the car`s radiator. So when the ac is operating the air entering the radiator is hotter causing the car`s coolant to run hotter. It actually overheats and a/c automatically shuts down. possible causes for the overheating? Can you drive it all day long without the ac? Or does it only overheat with ac on?Check to see that both the ac condenser and the radiator are clean and clear of any foreign matter, maybe you picked up a plastic bag or something like that impeding air flow. Does the fan operate properly? Does the heater blow hot air? If not the thermostat may be the culprit.
yes an ac can be put into your car but you need every single thing you need for an ac for that car.
There are three main possible causes to explain why a car air conditioner is blowing hot air. These causes are a worn out compressor, refrigerant leak, and an electrical problem.
When the ac is running the idle should be raised to compensate for the extra load. If the idle isn't rising then the car will cut off.
No ur AC should still work it may just be that your gauge is jammed and just needs to be loosened take it to the nearest garage as you dont want any overheating of the car or it will costs you $$$
Yes, because it will cause your fan to not work at all therefore cause the overheating.
No i dont however i am getting a rattling from somewhere else
The CV joint being loose is one of the main causes for a car shaking while it is going uphill. However, a faulty AC and faulty engine could also be the problem.
no it has a safeguard to prevent overheating the compressor
The chemical in the air conditioning unit needs replaced.
