It could be a dirty cabin filter.Wife claims fan blower isnt blowing as it used to. Sometimes it works great other times it speeds up and then slows down on it own. Is it the blower motor?
Thanks will checkIt could be a dirty cabin filter.
Check your cabin filter and replace it if dirty.
It should be behind the glove compartment.
If it blows full blast right after turning engine on, then slower down after a few minutes of driving, then more likely you have a dirty cabin filter.
Second possible cause would be low in refrigerant.
So I pulled cabin filter out and yes it was bad. Cleaned it out best I could and replaced it in. Wife drove and fan was working fine then fan quit and temperature gauge rose in the red? Did I do something wrong? She turned car off and called me and then turned car back on to head home, fan came back on and ran small amount of time then quit again and temperature rose again. AC was on during these episodes. Any thoughtsThanks will check
So heading to store to get new cabin air filter and antifreeze. Looks like antifreeze reservoir is pretty empty! Will add antifreeze and see what happens. Let the van cool down and it starts fine and blower was blowing again in the driveway. So maybe this all has to do with low antifreeze?Not related.
Remove radiator cap, start the engine and add coolant as needed.
If coolant level is ok, check radiator fan connector, sometimes it melts and radiator fan quit working.
If fan is ok, then thermostat is the suspect.
Blower motor was acting funny today, so cleaned cabin air filter first and it was ugly. Wife took off after I put in air filter back in. She had AC on and blower was working fine, all the sudden blower motor stopped and temperature gauge went up. She turned the car off, once I told her to just come home she said she tried the blower motor again it came on and then eventually quit again, at that point the temperature gage went back up that’s when she turned everything off and came home.So the van overheated and then the A/C cut off? Sounds like over-temp protect mode. Does it overheat when not running the A/C?
Make sure you add antifreeze into radiator first, then into recovery bottle.Thank you all. Will add antifreeze and new cabin air filter and sleep on it and see what happens in the morning when going to work
No, I've never tried, not needed.Levy is anti bleeder screw for some reason. Perhaps he over-tightened one and snapped it off and it scarred him for life.
There is a chance for air to get caught behind the thermostat. You would have to be fairly low on coolant for this to be an issue. If you have to poor more than half a gallon into the top of the radiator, you should open the bleeder on top of the thermostat until coolant comes out and then close it. This pushes out any air that may be trapped behind the thermostat.
