Why does your 1999 Oldsmobile intrigue leak on the passengers side floor when the air conditioning is on?
Temp blend door actuator is bad on the passenger side assuming you want both sides to blow cold air.
Defective windshield seal? Door not aligned properly? Defective door seal?
Your heater core is leaking.
Diagnose and fix water on floor passenger side.A damp carpet or water on floor passenger side situation can be caused by a plugged AC condensate drain line, a leaking heater core, leaking windshield seal, a problem with sunroof drains or water ingestion from the fresh air intake on your car's HVA...
Maybe a bad heater core
The condensation drain is plugged. We don't know what vehicle you have so we can't tell you where the drain is located.
busted raditator , check heater-core . most are found inside up under your dashboard . hope that helps you !
The drain tube for the condensation is probably plugged with debris. Condensation is a normal process within the ac system. Locate the drain tube and clean it out, the location varies with each make and model vehicle.
A damp carpet or water on floor passenger side situation can be caused by a plugged AC condensate drain line, a leaking heater core, leaking windshield seal, a problem with sunroof drains or water ingestion from the fresh air intake on your car's HVAC system.
The 1999 Oldsmobile Intrigue coil pack is located on the firewall, in the engine compartment. The coil pack will be on the passenger side of the firewall.
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.
The shaft that runs to the motor has got debree, dust etc. on it, and can be fixed with a little lubicant, however it will squeak again. I just replaced my blower motor. It is about a $70 replacement. It is about a 30 minute job.
If you are talking about the low coolant light then it is just low of coolant. Add coolant to the recovery tank. If you are talking about the coolant temperature light, then the engine is overheating. You may need to have the cooling system serviced. Drain the coolant and flush the system. Instal...
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 ...
By the front tire, I'm assuming? I'm also assuming you've been running your air conditioning. The MVAC compartment is located adjacent to the vent by the passenger side door. Air conditioning works through heat exchange, and condensation is produced as a result of it. That water can't just be all...
It's the coolant control valve for the heater core that's leaking. It's under more pressure when the engine is running and that why the leak is more noticable.
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.
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...
Most likely it is the ac system getting rid of condensed cooled humid air. If your car is over heating and it is a antifreeze leak it will be either green or yellow or orange in color. Also it will have a sweet taste to it. If you were to taste it. If that is the case, check all the hoses then ch...
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.
Because you are engaging a pump which draws its energy from the engine, putting a small amount of strain on the motor.
Why would your brake lights stay on even after you turned off the car on a 2001 Oldsmobile intrigue?
Probably a bad or mis-adjusted brake light switch
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.
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.
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.
Because you are using power/ torque from the motor to drive the A/C pump
you need to check that the shock absorbers are not worn out or broken
1 the weatherstripping around the door has gone bad and is letting rain in2 it is cold out and your heater core is leaking ( coolant not water unless that is what you have in your radiator )3 it is hot out and your air conditioning drain tube is clogged
Could be many things..faulty swaybar endlinkfaulty/loose exhaust hanger/bracketloose catalytic converter heat shieldbad shock/mount
Engine seal? Valve cover gasket? Timing chain cover?
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...
The switch on the driver side is either jammed in the closed position, or there's a broken wire.
Could be your ac compressor is going or gone, probably gone.
This is a very vehicle specific question. You're going to need to ask again and specify what you're driving. Include make, model, year, and trim level. Causes include software errors and clogged evaporator cores and operator (driver) error and much much more. The fix can be as simple as removing ...
Don't know what vehicle you have but, sounds like the duct work came apart for the middle vents.
If it is a mixture of water and anti-freeze (or the same as what's in the header tank, may be discoloured) then your heater matrix has gone. Best to refer to a Haynes manual and close the valve, then replace either the matrix or complete unit which ever is the cheapest.
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...
Rather, it's most likely to be water dripping from the air conditioning system – and there's absolutely nothing to worry about.It is caused by the air conditioning compressor working hard in hot weather: due to thermodynamics, the unit itself can freeze over as it takes moisture out of the car.
Could be,a bad spark plug(s),a bad spark plug wire(s),a bad distributor cap,a bad ignition rotor,a bad fuel injector(s),a burned valve(s),a mechanical problem,a vacuum leak,wet ignition parts,contaminated fuel (water),incorrect fuel pressure,
Why would the air conditioning only blow air from the defrost and floor vents and not the dash vents?
I would think that is a vacuum or a linkage problem with the heater control assembly (where all the buttons/slides are for changing between floor/defrost/vent) Had a diaphragm go bad on one once, and in a jeep cherokee, a slight collision with a guard rail knocked a vac line off for the vent cont...
It's probably the catalytic converter fan; not the a/c fan.
If it runs well when dry it's probably bad ignition wires, coil(s) or module. Ist choice would be the wires. Easiest way to test is to get a squirt bottle filled with water, open the hood at night and spray down the wires & ignition parts with water. Then look for arcing and this will tell yo...
There's a metal button like on the inside frame of the door. That button turns on and off the interior lights of the car when ever the door is open.This metal button also might control the open door ding sound. the button might be stuck or rusted out. Use 10w40 to get it unstuck
Temp blend door actuator malfunction.
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 piston has slipped off the fork or the fork is broken.
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 ...
First you have to determine what is wrong with the system before you can fix it. Take it to a shop that works on AC systems.
Probably low on freon, you may have a leak in the system.
low will cause the passenger side vents to blow cooler air, and the driver's side to blow warmer air.In this case, there is simply not enough Freon to cool the driver's side.The air conditioner blows cold air from the passenger side, but hot air from driver side.It's a 2004 Silverado.
have your heater core checked its probually leaking
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.
The is commonly an issue with the compressor and its cycling. Standard repairs may be as simple as recharging or as complicated as a full replacement of the part.
What would make the low water level light come on in a 1999 Oldsmobile Intrigue But the car does not run hot?
The low water level sensor is in your radiator overflow resivoir. The reservoir is supposed to have a certain amount of coolant in it but if it's low, the light comes on. This has nothing to do with the radiator being empty. True, if the reservoir is left unchecked the radiator may eventually bec...
Performing a GM OBDII Driving cycle:Do not leave the key in prior to the cold start or the heated oxygen sensor diagnostic may not run.
Either control switch is enabled on driver's door...or child switch on the insideof door (where it latches) is enabled
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.
1999-model vehicles do not have switches to turn off passenger air bags. This design feature came several years later, and only lasted until 2nd-generation air bags became mandatory in 2006.
Because there is a transfer of heat through the evaporator coils inside the conditioned air box inside the vehicle, there is a tendency to create condensation on the coils. This condensation is usually channeled off to the out side of the car via a drain path or hose. If the drain path is blocked...
When vehicle is running: Water pump is circulating coolant and cooling system pressure is building
Why would the speedometer on a 1999 0ldsmobile intrigue stop working after cleaning the battery terminals?
Because you didnt keep good care of it
The byproduct of this air conditioning system is that water from the humid air inside your home, (sometimes due to rain storms in monsoon months) tends to overflow the drainage system of an AC Unit.With no place to drain, the water overflows from the drainage system into your house if the AC unit...
If you are running the A/C then this is normal and is just condensation from the A/C unit. If you are not running the A/C then it may be coolant. If your coolant is low then check for a leak at the connections for the heater hoses going inside the car.
The fan is almost always on when you turn on the vehicle because it also helps keep the engine and other parts cooler
The ETC sensor on the 2002 Olds 3.5 engine is located at the right rear of engine, below the throttle body at the head not the block.
Will the air bags on the passenger seat turn off when a child sits there in a 1999 Mercury Villager?
no they wont the safest place for a child is in the rear seat until they are 4 ft 2 in tall
What could be the problem if when you use the air conditioning in your 1988 Delta Oldsmobile the car won't start the next time?
So. How do you get it to start the next time? I say you have a poor battery or charging system, The AC fan is taking just enough to keep the battery out of full charge. fix it.
yes it does in fact it burns alot of it so when you guage is almost on low turn the air off and drive slow it runs out less gas. if you drive fast it will burn alot of gas to.
The engine coolant fan can keep running after the engine is turned off in any car because the temperature gauge is in the radiator. As long as the radiator is still hot, the fan will keep running until the temperature gauge says it has cooled enough.
Under normal conditions a modern vehicle should not overheat when the air conditioning system is on. The first steps to investigating this condition are ensuring correct coolant level, condition, flow and thermostat actuation.
If you have your air conditioning running it is the moisture that is pulled out of the air when it is being cooled. That water is then expelled outside of the car
One side has a faulty temp blend door actuator.
First what year of car, and what does it smell like? Some vehicles have a recirculation filter behind the glove box. Or the floor mat could have something on them that make the odor. Try running the a/c on low and not on max. max recirculates the air in the cabin so any odors in the cabin stays i...
Nobody would ever think of changing just the bad sparkplugs, but many people don't hesitate to just replace the O2 sensor that is showing up as bad. Just replace both of them. When one goes bad, the other is about to follow. Save yourself some time and frustration in the future. Do them both.
When the system is low on refrigerant the pressure switch will not allow the compressor to turn on. You may be right on the edge so it will sometimes and other times not. You need to recharge the AC.
What does it mean when a white feather floats into your car window and it sets on the passenger side?
It means that you have God by your side everywhere you go and drive .
Try looking at the brake pads. You may need new ones. If that isn't the problem, try tightening the bolts on your tire they may be loose.
Hello. I have an 2000 Olds Intrigue with less than 34,000 miles on it.Originally when I inherited the car 5 years ago the instrument cluster lights would go out for extended periods of time and sometimes come back on.Wiithin the last 3 months I now get infrequently rough driving/stalling.I smelle...
The pass side air bag could be unplugged or has been deployed and removed.
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.
SUGGESTION: CHECK FOR A PLUGGED "CONDENSATE DRAIN TUBE" SOMEWHERE UNDER THE HOOD; PROBABLY CLOSE TO THE HEATER OR AIR CONDITIONER - YOU HAVE PROBABLY NOTICED CARS ON A HOT DAY DRIPPING WATER UNDER WITH THE A/C RUNNING. THIS IS THE WATER THAT IS DRAINING INSIDE YOUR CAR INSTEAD OF RUNNING OUT THE ...
the blend door actuater is bad
If it is coolant, a leaky heater core. If it is water, a clogged ac drain or damaged door gasket.
The wiper arm bends over time and probably needs replaced. Sometimes you can straighten them.
It's more than likely a blend door that is broken. Look under the passenger side footwell and see if there is a black box towards the firewall. If there is then there is probably no way to get it out without removing the steering wheel, dashboard and discharging the a/c to access the airbox. I wo...
The metal shavings are coming from something inside of the 1999 Silhouettes engine. A bearing is coming apart most likely, and the engine could fail if the problem is not fixed.
Standing in front of the vehicle looking at the engine the rear cylinders are numbered from left to right 1-3-5 and the front cylinders left to right are 2-4-6. Firing order is 1-2-3-4-5-6. Coil pack connections left to right are:5-2 3-6 4-1
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 $.
most cars have some kind of shut off device that is activated after an airbag is deployed- its a safety precaution. The computer will shut off the ignition or fuel pump. The car thinks it was in an accident- so to avoid possible further damage and injury, its programmed to do this as a precaution...
Could be low brake fluid or just worn brakes in need of replacement.Could also be a faulty master cylinder.
If it is leaking on the passenger side, out side of the vehicle, then this is normal. It is condensation coming from the evaporator core. If it is leaking INSIDE the vehicle, then you have a clogged evaporator core vent drain. Clearing the drain should clear the problem.
