1991 Nissan Sentra has water leaking in the car after you turn on your AC How do you know whats wrong with it Can it be a hose or is it something worse And where do you take your car to get it checked?
The A/C Condensor drain line is stopped up. Clean out this line and the water will drain under the car instead of inside the car. It is located somewhere near the firewall, passenger side. Crawl under the car and find the hose. Use a blunt object such as a pencil to clean it out.
If a 97 cadillac deville wit new radiator leaks water a lot and has to be filled after short distances or it overheats What is wrong with it does the water pump need replacing or just hoses and how?
You need to determine exactly where the coolant is leaking from before you can make repairs. Use a small mirror and a good flashlight and probe around until you find it.
Low pressure in your AC unit can be a sign of a leak, as can the actual coolant draining around your vehicle.Even so, most leaks are small and hard to spot.The smartest bet is to add a dye to your air conditioner, and then trace that dye to the source of the leak.

Can you get your money back if the used car has something wrong with it as soon as you leave the lot?
Doubtful, unless the seller agrees. There is no law allowing you to return the vehicle. If you bought the car, "As Is" with no warranty, then you own it as is. Some states do provide that the seller give you a 30 day warranty. Check with your state Attorney General.
Your AC has got a bad smell than you notice water leaking underneath your van Do you need to be concern?
Yes. get is serviced. The water under your car is nothing to worry about this is humidity extracted from the cars interior when the AC is running. The smell - no idea what this is if it comes from the AC itself then there must be some mold formed in the AC pipes etc.
Quick and dirty miss diag: Remove and inspect spark plugs, 80% of time the bad cylinder will show a wet or fouled plug.

i would first check wheel bearings on front wheels There are quite a few possibilities; worn wheel bearing (that depends on the type of wheel bearing), loose wheel studs, tire balance, CV joint. Whatever it is, you should probably take care of it soon.

You was alway told not to start your car with the ac on so you always turn it off before you get out of car why is this?
The next time you go to start your car turn everything "ON". That would be wipers,radio, air conditioner on high.

Ive installed a cold air intake in your car and now when it idles it gets really hot is there something wrong or is this normal?
No this is not normal. The cold air intake will not cause overheating. I would say you have disconnected the fan thermo relay, or the fans themselves, when installing the cold air intake. Check all the connections and the fuse. Turn on the A/C and see if the fans are running. They should run cont...
How do you get the brake Light to go off on my 1991 Nissan maxima does it mean the brakes needs changed or what can you do?
Brake warning lights need to be taken very seriously - it could mean, as you say, that your brakes need to be renewed. You should not drive the car until you have it checked by an authorized dealer - it could mean your brakes are about to fail or may not work properly, especially if used in an em...
As long as the leak doesn't get worse, as leaks tend to do, and leave you stranded someplace with a blown engine. We'd get it fixed first.
DON'T!! Dry the engine out first. If you try and start an engine full of water you will blow it. After it is dry, start it like you normally would.
If your ac is working well and is on in humid weather it will dehumidify the air and can drain quite a bit of water which you can see especially well when stopping the car it will drain underneath the car usually near the firewall in the desert when dry it might not drain at all but the more humi...

Your car runs hot all the time it leaks antifreeze and it makes a hissing sound when you drive whats wrong with your car?
It is overheating. Possible causes are thermostat stuck closed, defective water pump, cooling fan not working, clogged radiator, and more. STOP drivng this car until you get this fixed. You are going to ruin this engine if you have not already done so.
In Illinois, we are required to report repossessions immediately to the police. In some cities, the police want to know BEFORE we repossess. So when you call your local P.D. to report your car stolen, they can let you know if the car has been repossessed.
The area by the fuel filler should have a label reading "either diesel only" or "unleaded gasoline only". The area around the fuel gauge should have something like that also. If all else fails open the fuel filler cap and see what it smells like.
Would it hurt to just take your thermostat out because my car is getting how even though i have new water pump radiator hoses?
the car will run with no thermostat installed but performance will be affected. the thermostat not only opens when the engine gets to preset temp but also closes until the engine reaches normal operating range. when the engine is cold either the choke or the fuel injection system richens the fuel...
What could be wrong with your brakes when you stop it sounds like water rushing from the back of the car?

Frozen strut?Your tire might have a bubble in it. Inspect all of your tires for slashes or bumps on the side wall.
Then, see if the engine will spin. You may have to remove the fan to access the crank nut. If it does not turn by hand then there may be engine damage due to water will not compress. This is called hydro-locking your engine. If it does turn then "is the starter locked up" Be sure not to over look...
What is wrong with the car when after sitting for 5 hours without being used it has a hard time starting?

About four week ago you replaced an old battery that was leaking acid Now your new battery is leaking acid is it just a bad battery or could something else be causing the new battery to leak?
Leaking from where on the battery, the caps? If so the charging system may be over charging the battery and causing the acid to boil out. Could be a voltage regulator problem.

What might be wrong with an 1991 Integra when driving the car we lost acceleration then as it slowed it turned off now it will not restart No indicators came on and no smell of any fumes?

Can you sue if your car has been repossessed after you paid it in full 30 days ago and received the title and overpayment check?
If you have the clear title in your hand and someone took the vehicle from you, you certainly have the right to sue. In fact, you have an obligation to make sure those people are more careful in the future. You should wrap them up so tight in court that it makes them hurt.
You first put the car into either neutral or park (this will depend on whether the car is an automatic or stick (manual)), and then you start the car again. That's it! Good luck.
exhaust is pretty easy to smell.If you smell it, then you likely do, also check the rear end of the car for possible places where the exhaust can get into.a battery powered carbon monoxide detector will also work
Depends on the state you live in.
Nissan sentra 1.3 lec engine ga13 when am turning on ac the car will not run fast even you push harder the accelerator there is no response. how can i do to make more powerful to my engine?
It's a 1.3 liter engine with not much power in it. Its built like that to minimize fuel consumption. And yes turning the AC on will decrease whatever horsepower you have. If you want to make it faster, try doing an engine swap.i have a 1.3 lec and with proper tuning, it can run up to 160km/h. btw...

What would cause a thumping sound from the front of your car and a grinding sound when decreasing speed and excabberate the knocking when you turn slighly to the right Worse after car has warmed up.?
Those details have the classic sound of a worn constant velocity (CV) joint on the right side passenger wheel. If it is found to be bad, remember that these days it may be cost-effective to replace the whole axle on that side.
You turned the corner and your car made a loud noise like someone thew something at it But after that it made this noise and you parked it right away because you were afraid to drive it?
Sounds like something in the suspension system like maybe a shock or srut may be worn out or the rubber grommet (each has one on each end that the mounting bolt goes through) on one of them is gone or damaged. Or maybe something in the trunk turned over or slid around or maybe somebody left a wre...

When the cooling water leaks outside you can somehow survive by refilling it oftem, but when it leaks into motor oil or into the cylinder space your engine will be brick dead soon if the leak is not stopped soon.
Turning the key in the driver's side door should do the trick
It seems that the carburetor is misadjusted.

Your car AC is not getting cold what is the cause and is there a way to check it out before you replace?
Check the charge (freon) first. Get a can of R134 from an auto parts store-they come with a gauge or get the gauge separate if cheaper. You can plug into the pressure valves on lines high & low side. (They are pretty much like tire valves, round, about dime-sized, usually blue for low, red fo...

How do you charge refrigerant blends you were told that if your system has a leak that you have to recover all the freon fix the leak and recharge it with newunused refrigerant?
That is only partially true. Legally you must repair the leak before adding refrigerant. You do not have to remove the Freon and recharge it with fresh Freon. However, this is what I would do if it were my car. I am assuming this is a 1996 or older vehicle which contains Freon (R12). I would have...
