When air condition is on instead of condensation going outside its getting your floor board wet?
The condensation drain is plugged. We don't know what vehicle you have so we can't tell you where the drain is located.
Start by positioning a fan, two if possible, so that it blows across the car's floors and seats from one side to the other.A shop fan is perfect for this.Keep the car's doors open and leave the fans running for at least a day inside your garage.This should thoroughly dry out any remaining moisture.
Why does your 1999 Oldsmobile intrigue leak on the passengers side floor when the air conditioning is on?
Condensate drain plugged or disconnected
If this happens all the time and not only in a rain storm, a wet passenger floor is probably caused by a leaking heater core. The heater core channels engine coolant inside for use heating the interior. There may also be excess condensation (fog) on the inside of the windshield. Those with experi...
It is safe to drive, it won't burt into flames. Your concern should be the mold that will eventually grow.
Check for a vacuum leak under the hood, as most HVAC controls are vacuum operated. Listen for a hissing noise. If you have some mechanical expertise, you can spray carburetor cleaner around under the hood and listen for a change in idle speed, this will give you an approximate location to search ...
There is a weep hose that drains water from the evaporator. When it clogs or comes off you get a flood there. Clear the hose out and it should be fine. Its behind the glove box.
It has an internal blockage!Air conditioning gas cools as it expands (as it changes from liquid to a gas). It is meant to be a liquid in your condenser but if your condenser has a blockage (say some dirt or other contaminent) then the liquid loses pressure on the other side of the blockage and be...
When the a/c is turned on in any auto it makes the engine work harder, this will tend to heat the engine more. Make sure that your cooling system in the car is running properly, and is full of cooling fluids.
Why is air conditioning oil coming out of your air conditioning compresser sometimes on your 1995 corvette?
The seal is shot, time to replace the compressor.
The air conditioner drain condensate tube is located under the hood by the heater core . Remove the tube and clean the adapter, it may have picked up road debris.
AC condensation generally drains from a tube located under the vehicle. When vehicles sit parked and running the AC, a puddle of water will usually form under the vehicle near the drain hose.
Probably low on freon, you may have a leak in the system.
There can be quite a few reasons as to why the compressor is squealing when the a/c is activated. The most common cause is a loose accessory drive belt (or serpentine belt on some vehicles). Another cause is a loose or weak a/c clutch or possibly a faulty or defective compressor. Try tightening o...
Why is the passenger side of your car floor soaked when it rains but there are no wet spots on the roof or windows?
Simple, you have a leak. Suspect that it is leaking from the cowl. Check the drain for the condenser and see if it is plugged. Check for debris below the window in the channel.
2001 Pontiac Montana air conditioning blows out cold air as long as the car is moving When the car stops or idles the air conditioning becomes warm It is cooler than outside the car but not much?
your engine fan is not pulling airflow over your condenser at idle or their may be a condenser fan not working check for airflow issue at idle that is the cause of your problem make sure condenser and radiator clean. Many auto cooling/heating systems use a "blend door" which mixes both hot and co...
No start when wet indicates bad spark plug wires, failing coil or coil packs. To locate start car on dry day, raise engine hood, then mist with with garden hose (mist NOT SPRAY), if engine stalls you've found the problem part or parts.Using a hand held spray bottle with a mix of salt water works ...
Could be a stuck open thermostat or low on coolant or the temperature blend door is faulty.
It is possible that your car AC drain hose is plugged with dirt and the condensate is instead collecting and dripping into the vehicle. I tried not using the AC for a day but when I got into my car the next morning the ground was still soaked. Could there be problems with the drainage from my sun...
Not sure what you mean by 'stopped' but the simple answer is yes, it is ok.If the engine is not running, but the key is on with the A/C on, basically, the blower motor is the only thing running - the AC compressor is not engaged and moving freon through the system, cooling the air and blowing col...
If it is water, it could be a plugged condensation drain for the ac. If it is engine coolant, it could be a leaky heater core.
yes, because the a/c compressor in operating in the defrost mode.
What type of health hazard does it pose when you inhale the water vapors from the aircondition that leaks inside of the car instead of outside the car when the air is running on a daily basis?
I have never heard of anyone contracting any health issues with this problem as the water that you are seeing is just condensation from the air conditioner.
Leaking Heater Core Another possible cause of wet carpet, especially in the front of the car, when it hasn't been raining, is a leak from the heater core.Car heaters circulate coolant through the dashboard area to heat the car, and if the heater core springs a leak, coolant can drip onto the floor.
Your coffee holder isn't holding your coffee? :-) If it doesn't smell like antifreeze (heatercore leak) then I would be suspect of a plugged drainhole in the wiper transmission cowl area. This time of year leaves will plug it up and water flows in through the firewall area. It would also be good ...
It could mean many things, perhaps something as simple as having no gas.Is there power? if not it could be the alternator, starter, or battery.Not to mention the billion other possibilities. More information is needed in order to make an accurate inference.
Your question is vague at best.I assume you're alluding to automatic climate control or some form of thermostatically controlled a/c unit. If so, the answer is yes BUT, a/c should only come on if it's overridden from the automatic setting to the 'on' setting -- otherwise you have a broker regulat...
The motor is working harder to push more cold air in the vehicle.
Why does your car make noise when the air conditioning is off and then it goes away when you turn it on 96 Sunfire GT Auto?
the a/c compressor cluth is bad. should make a grinding noise when not on and goes away when it is on.
Maybe if u tried fixing it that wouldn't happen smartone
They are only called Air Force One when the President is on board.If the Vice President or another senior official is flying it is called Air Force Two.Otherwise it is called by its number like any other airplane.
The usual cause is a condensate drain that is plugged. You should be able to crawl under the car and poke something up through the drain to clear it out. Another possible problem is the drain pan is cracked or broken allowing the condensate to drip. This would require partial disassembly of the d...
When steam is cooled in the air it creates water vapor. This water vapor comes together to create clouds and fog.
Because you are engaging a pump which draws its energy from the engine, putting a small amount of strain on the motor.
Ditch the air freshener and target areas that might still feel wet with a blow dryer.Next, get some moisture-absorbent products, such as baking soda, that you can leave inside the car behind each of the seats.This will work over time to dry out your car's cabin and reduce the chance of funky odor...
Sure, leather can get wet - but it's not a great idea.The main problem when you get leather wet actually arises as the leather dries.When leather gets wet, the oils in the leather bind to the water molecules.The leather's loss of natural oils causes it to lose its supple quality and turn brittle.
Possibly due to a failing compressor. The A/C compressor in vehicles has a clutch in it which operates by friction. If the bearings are going bad, or the clutch is about to lock up, it can overload the engine as it tries to spin the compressor. The excess load on the engine makes the engine want ...
When that happens, it's called Hydroplaning, and it can happen at speeds as low as 35 MPH.Cruise control makes hydroplaning worse by trying to keep your vehicle going at a constant speed.
Oil and fuel filters, though, need replacing at regular intervals.There really is no way to clean a dirty oil or fuel filter, so replacing a clogged one represents your best option.Even without cleaning, a cabin air filter lasts at least a year before needing a replacement.
Because you are using power/ torque from the motor to drive the A/C pump
It will probably get noisy and leak oil and freon. If you wait for it to seize it will be more costly to repair because it will fill the system with metal that must be cleaned out before a new compressor is installed.
take it to a garage. either your air compensation valve is not working properly or you have a air ride level sensor that is broken or out of adjustment.
Interior window condensation is caused by excessive moisture in the house, and it often occurs in the winter when the warm air inside the house condenses on the cold windows.Exterior window condensation is simply dew and occurs when the window is colder than the dew point.
The fan is almost always on when you turn on the vehicle because it also helps keep the engine and other parts cooler
For keeping cool during ground operations. However, in light General Aviation aircraft, during the takeoff roll and climb out, the air conditioner must be in the off mode. Generally small aircraft have a switch linked to the throttle control which automatically switches the a/c off.In low level f...
I believe doing so would constitute a criminal offense. Find another way of getting back at the bully who picked on you.
It's probably the catalytic converter fan; not the a/c fan.
Check the door seal u can do this by hanging a piece of paper from inside and running a blow dryer around the outside of door and see if the paper moves.
Two ways off the top of my head that this can happen. First is a plugged evaporator core drain. As you your Air Consitioning runs, it will form condensation that drops off the evaporator core and through a drain that is typically on the passenger side firewall area. The second way, When there is ...
You are losing vacuum from cracked/bad vacuum lines or the vacuum check valve for the HVAC controls is bad. When the engine is under load climbing that hill it does not produce enough vacuum to operate a leaky HVAC system.
If it is wet with engine coolant you have a leaky heater core.If it is wet with water you have a plugged AC condensation drain.
Everytime you run your 99 cavilier with the air conditioning on it blows out cool air but when you stop It blows out hot air like it stops working?
Refrigerant level low or cooling fan not working. worst case would be that the compressor no longer can build enough pressure and needs to be replaced
One reason your floorboard is wet after it rains is that there may be rust holes in the floor or the floor pans are rusted out. A leak in the windshield seal may also be the cause of wet floorboards. Bad door seals or window seals can allow water to soak the floorboards when it rains.
A bad thermostat can cause overheating in a Nissan Frontier when the air conditioning is turned on. A bad compressor can also cause this.
The AC compressor could be locking up. Don't run the AC until you have it checked out. When the AC compressor starts to go bad it can send metal junk into the AC system causing trouble and $.
Because of the "drag" caused with windows down, it is usually more beneficial to drive with the windows up and the air on. For more information, check out HowSTuffWorks.com.
The engine has to power the air conditioner pump, so less revs are made resulting in less revs for the alternator, resulting in less volts so your gauge drops a little
It's called hydroplaning.
There are so many things that could be wrong its not even funny. Depends on if its a no fuel or no fire situation. Depending on which one it would be anything from a cracked sensors that is expanding and contracting and in the cold it would be contracted. Does the vehicle crank or do nothing. Lot...
There is a TSB from Chrysler concerning this. Take the car to a dealer and have them do a update/reflash of the vehicle compter. This should correct the problem.
Your 2003 montero was blowing cold air now it only blows hot air the condensing fan still turns on Could i have a bad compressor?
it very well could be a bad compressor, but you may also have a leak in one of the a/c lines, or the orfice tube. if you take it to a garage that does a/c work, they could hook it up to a machine and run an ultraviolet dye through the a/c system and look at it under the hood to see if there are a...
Is it normal for the brake pedal to go all the way to the floor board with ABS while holding at a stop sign or stop light?
No! sounds like you either have a leak or a bad master cylinder. pump it a few times and hold it. if you're still loseing pressure, check your fliud. do this a couple more times then cheak the fluid again. if you've lost fluid then its a leak, if not then its probably the master cylinder.
The refrigerant change of state is what causes the heat transfer. The refrigerant is a low-pressure liquid when it's in the evaporator, which absorbs heat from the air, cooling it. The absorption of the heat causes the refrigerant to boil (change state from liquid to gas). The gas is then brought...
Start by visiting http://www.classicautoair.com/ A lot of companies have retrofit air conditioning for older cars. You didnt say what year / make / model.
Low coolant and a clogged heater core are possibilities.
Willis Haviland Carrier invented the first air conditioning system.
heater control cable not adjusted properly?
To intake air for the engine
There is no DRAIN the system needs to be evacuated by a qualified repair shop the freon in the system may be so-called envornmently freindly but you can not release it into the air.
Air must pass over the fins in the condenser to help the compressor turn the freon gas back into a liquid. The radiator fan doesn't pull enough air through the condenser efficiently when in park.
The condenser usually leaks and that makes it go bad. Also it can become clogged if the compressor goes bad and pumps metallic particles through the system.
The wires are probably getting too hot.
I use a car air duct cleaning product called Clean Air. I gets rid of musty smells and supposedly kills molds and mildews. It does freshen up the air.
a great down-and-dirty way is to get a can of lysol, turn on fan and "recirculate", which might be "max a/c" in your vehicle, find the recirc intake vent (the vent in the floor area that is drawing air in 'recirc' mode, or not blowing air when vent is on "high", usually on passenger side), turn f...
it depends on where u go to get it done and how long the mechanic shop says it takes most small town shops charge 70 bucks an hour for labor, but the Freon is actually cheap and easy to do yourself. there is a valve that looks like a tire core under the hood and u just connect the can to this and...
It depends on what the weather is outside and how developed the air conditioner is. if it's hot out it may take a while to get cool or if it is scorching hot outside it may not get cold at all.
it means either your emergency brake is on or your low on brake fluid
some cars are designed to turn off comp when kicked into passing gear to give you more power
That is dependent on a myrid of factors. The make, the model, the engine size and options, the transmission gearing and whether automatic or manual, the differentials gear ratio and many, many more factors. A sports, or sporty, car will generaly be quicker than the sedan model and so on. Dependin...
My air fuel ratio gauge doesn't read unless it's really get fed gas like while going up a hill or flooring it. Is it normal for it to be this wild?
no this is not normal unless you have a cheap a/f/r guage. It should read at all speeds and loads.
try replacing o2 sensor also the check the fuel filter
Because the case is cracked and/or a cell is ruptured. That's probably not just water leaking on the floor. I suggest you buy some cat litter or floor dry and clean that up, quick.
Chances are, particularly if this is an automatic transmission, you are low on tranny fluid. To check this, the engine needs to be at normal operating temperature and idling. Checking tranny fluid when the engine is cold and not idling will give a false reading, indicating that it is full ...
nope. Its kind of like hair on your arms/legs when riding a bike. The result is so miniscule, that it literally has no effect. But a dirty car can have all kinds of other problems, so try to clean it off every once and a while
Your probable source here is going to be condensation from the AC evaporator.
depending on what car it should cut out because the engine is being sapped of the power by the a.c and the gearbox stalls espicially up hills.
2005 gmc Yukon that the front air conditioning comes on when it wants but the back air works great what could be the problem?
The first thing that you should check is the wiring going to the blower fan for the front evaporator. If that's not the case you should unplug the fan turn your key on turn the fan on high then check to see if you got 12.6 volts at the connector. If you do replace your blower fan. If not it is po...
