  • Can you seal an ac unit from air with a Vaccum Pump?

    I am looking for knowledge not for someone to tell me to take it to a mechanic. The issue I am running into is the vaccum pump I bought only blows air out, no since the theory is to seal air out, do I need to buy a vaccum pump the blows air into the system or out of the system?

  • What are the steps I should take before using vacuum pump to seal the ac unit in my car?

    Good evening, I am working on a ford focus 2005 zx4 2.0 cyc, and my concern I was wondering was other than sealing the air out of the A/C unit what else does the vacuum pump seal do? I can see you can add refrigerant and oil to your ac compressor, but my concern is for one its already blowing out hot air and since it is already blowing out hot air could that possible mean there is no refrigerant left in the ac unit and I do not have to get it flushed? If i still do before using the vacuum pump to seal ac unit and add refrigerant what all should I get done? If I take it to a shop to flush the lines, will the car still be derivable to destination that is about 0.6 miles away from the shop I will be getting the lines flushed at?Also when they say flush the lines what all specifically am I flushing? I am in the process of getting ready to change the AC Compressor because its going bad and am somewhat illiterate with cars, So me a student am asking for the best knowledge any of you wise teachers can give please thank you.

  • Ac compressor replacement. ?

    Hey I have a question. Ok so I understand the purpose of getting the ac system vaccumed out, but if I the hose that I pulled from the old ac compressor already leaked out all the freon and dried up would I still need to get it vacuumed down if so why? Because I'm thinking I should be good and able to recharge and presto cold air. My issue is my ac compressor is bad and I need to replace it because it's not turning on and I no longer have cold air. So again I wouldnt need to get it vacuumed down correct?

  • Ford Focus Cruise Control Not Working?

    Hello good evening, I am having some concerns with my 2005 ford focus zx4 2.0 cyl. I have replaced the the third brake light bulbs and fuse and cruise control switch and nothing. I have ran the self diagnostic test where you hold the cruise control switch off while in run and turning the key 4 times. The results of the test came out with 0 flashes at the end of the test which wants me to suspect circuitry or wheel steering. I know it could not be the wheel buttons because during the test every light has lit up while pressing the buttons on the wheel. I need a little bit of help. Could it be the vacuum actuator?

  • Cruise control issues on ford focus 2005.?

    So I have not been successfully able to get my cruise control working on my 2005 ford focus 2005, I have replaced the cruise control so far nothing. The light comes on but does not maintain speed and eventually shuts off, I know it couldnt be electrical. The only next issue is my third brake light connected to the trunk is not coming on when I hot the brakes, but the normal left and right ones come on as to if a car behind me would normally drop but just the third tail light, could that play a role in the cruise control system?

  • Ford Focus 2005 ZX4 Cruise Control Not Working, Please Help?

    Hi I am having issues with my ford focus 2005 ZX4 cruise control is  not working, I replaced the cruise control switch, maybe I'm not activating it right? The light comes on then goes off after going under a certain mph, it does not maintain speed like how its suppose to. The light comes on and off when I hit the switch but when I turn it on it's like nothing happens, I still have to step on the gas manually, but when I brake the light does go out which I believe its suppose to do. Am I missing something? The fuse I replaced was 53 which is a 10 AMP. 

    I followed this video https://youtu.be/FYsMq6IEehk

  • I need help figuring out what could be wrong with my 2005 ford focus se? ?

    Please before you read take the time out and read fully for me please thank you.

    Hi I have recently been having some issues with my 2005 ford focus se and also recently the check engine

    light has came on. I took it to autozone to get the code scanned and it came back with a fuel line issue as in something was causing the fuel line to not get enough fuel. He said it could either be the fuel pump or fuel line. When I step on the gas a little it starts to putt and does not go at the capacity as it used to. When I stepped on the gas it would get up now it kinda takes some time. I put oil in it which I believed it needed because the oil after taking the cap off was smoking so I also bought some 5W 20 which helped a little bit but I dont think its wise to mix oil when I just bought the car not even knowing what oil was prior in the car. Can some one please help me? Also someone said if I need to replace the fuel pump they might have to drop the gas tank, how much would that be? Someone please help me, I have a good car and try to take good care of it and am very ignorant with cars. Thank you.

  • How do I invest in my child properly?

    I was doing some math and thinking if I set $100 aside to a bank account each month for my child within 21 years he would be 25. He just turned $3 today and I was really thinking and doing the math by the time he is 25 he will have a little over $25,000. My questions I have is a bank the safe place to start building and putting that kind of money in monthly for my child? Next what is interest? would this incur interest? is interest a bad thing? Next question is do some banks have a trustee or someone that cannot allow me to touch this money nor my child until that age limit unless under my special circumstances? If my bank does not have an trustee where are other places that I can invest money into with a trustee for my child? Would this more so be a Gerber plan care question? Someone please help me.
