What causes a car to overheat while sitting still?

    When you're driving, the natural airflow does the trick. However, when your car is sitting still, the radiator fan should kick in, keeping the air moving over the radiator to help cool down the coolant. If the fan isn't working, the engine will begin to overheat until more air flows over it.18 mar 2019
  • Why is my AC blowing hot air instead of cold?

    When AC is blowing warm air, the most common cause are low freon levels. Due to the lack of freon, there the freon expansion (turning it from liquid to gas) is not sufficient. That means the cooling coil will not be adequately cooled; in fact, it might start to become warmer the longer we run the AC.
