How do I check the level of refrigerant in my car? (video)
What does a AC heater blend door actuator do?
A blend door actuator controls the temperature and the flow of the air in a car. If your vehicle is only releasing cold air, or if you are not able to change the airflow, it may be because of a malfunctioning actuator. Sometimes, the fix needs recalibration, and sometimes you need to replace the part that is broken. via
How do I know if my car AC needs to be recharged?
In the simplest form, you'll know when you need an AC recharge if your AC starts pumping warm air instead of cold. There is a very limited amount of refrigerant in the system, and when even small amount leaks, the system can no longer function properly, delivering lukewarm air instead of cold air. via
How much is an AC actuator?
The average cost ranges from $100 to $400 for an HVAC blend door actuator replacement in your vehicle. via
What is the difference between actuator and sensor?
A sensor tends to convert a physical attribute to an electrical signal. An actuator does the opposite: it changes an electrical signal to physical action. via
How can you tell if your thermostat is sticking?
Checking For the Signs of a Bad Thermostat
Look to see if the coolant is swirling/flowing immediately — that means the thermostat's stuck open. If the coolant doesn't flow after 10 minutes or so and continues to be stagnant after the temperature gauge indicates it's hot, the thermostat's likely stuck closed. via
