If your heater is spraying a light mist through your vents it could be your heater coil. Mine did the same thing, smell rubber burning, then started a light mist through the vents. If you don't get that checked out, it could mess up your water pump and possibly your engine

Did you bleed the air out of the cooling system. Might be that. Open one of the heater hoses to bleed. Also check thermostat.

Every time I turn on the air or heat when the car is running My power steering iseffected and a loud screech? But not when the car not running (blower motor works) I think it is the ac condencer?


you need to replace the serpentine belt and perhaps the belt tensioner. When a heavy load is put on the belt, like turning on the AC, the drag may stop the belt from turning. This would stop the power steering pump from turning causing a hard steer condition. The belt is not gripping the pulleys tight enough. This is due to a worn out serpentine belt or worn out tensioner. If the AC works( cools the car) then replace the belt. If this does not cure the problem then replace the belt tensioner as well.

I have a 2002 Pontica sunfire my air condition stopped working a couple of months ago it doesn't even put cold or heat air, it makes a weird nosie, i was wondering what it could be?


If the weird noise is like a coffee grinding machine, the a/c compressor is shot. If the noise goes away when you turn off the a/c, it confirms compressor trouble. If there is a screeching noise when you rev up the engine, it could be that the a/c belt has too much slack and is not turning over the compressor. Heat production and management has nothing to do with the a/c, it is a separate system,

I have a 1997 Buick LeSabre. It has a light knocking . it will knock a couple of times then not at all for a long while! it seems to be coming from around one of the bottom pulleys what could it be?


Tell somebody to rev the motor and check where the problem is from, otherwise remove serpentine belt, if it's a supercharged model remove supercharged belt before, and remove the accessories belt ! tell him to start the motor a short time to see it the knock sound is there or not, if not check each pulley if there's any loose or strange noise while turning them !

Just got alternater replaced a couple of months ago and its starting to squeel again like last time and the battery light keeps flickering on and off


The alternator drive belt is loose or worn out. If the alternator is driven off a serpentine belt then replace the belt. Inspect the serpentine belt tensioner and replace if necessary. On an 18 year old car it is more than likely defective. If it is driven off a standard drive belt then adjust the alternator to tighten the belt. Inspect the belt for fraying and or cracks and replace if you see any.

I have a 1999 Mercury Sable. The only problem I have had with the car is the serpentine belt. It started 3 months ago . . . the engine was overheating and the belt was shredding. I bought a belt tensioner...


take the belt off and carefully check to see if any of the pulleys are out of line and check to make sure they spin smooth and true check for bearing wear and noise in any of the pulleys cause it sounds like simply there is a pulley out of line

is the a/c working ok??? shredding the belt may be cause by the a/c compressor problems. the "chunk" maybe not, but shredding tells me something does not spin when it should. I dont know why the mehanic put a new pump on that had a problem with the pulley, it should be smooth. anyhting that the belt runs should be smooth and east to turn, make sure that all of the grooves are clean, no remnants of the old belt.

My car died a couple of days ago when I was driving. The codes P0505 and P0123 appeared. I replaced the sensors and the car still won't start and P0505 was still showing up


the idle air control valve is on the throttle body below the throttle positioning sensor. To test first, use a test light on the connection coming to it with the vehicle running. Rev the motor and each terminal should make the light flash. In this case it is most likely the sensor. If they do not flash it is in the wiring or pcm
