The air conditioning system can have four (4) different issues: mechanical, electrical, ducts, or refrigerant. All these types of issues can have a similar effect: an uncomfortable vehicle cabin experience. The air conditioning is part of the HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning) system. The primary function is to provide you comfort while operating your motor vehicle. The air conditioning system's function is to remove heat and moisture from the air, reducing the relative humidity in the passenger compartment.
The key parts of the cooling system remove heat from the engine and automatic transmission. The water pump circulates coolant throughout the engine. The coolant absorbs the heat and returns it to the radiator and heater core, where the heat is dissipated. The thermostat regulates the coolant temperature to keep it consistent for efficient engine operation. Geico says overheating problems are among the top four reasons for being stranded during the summer months.
The exhaust and emissions system muffles engine noise while reducing harmful fuel vapors and exhaust pollutants. Exhaust gases are collected from the cylinder head by the exhaust manifold, which diverts the exhaust gases by traveling through a catalytic converter where harmful components are converted to inert gases. The gases then pass through a muffler, which decreases the noise of the exhaust before exiting through the tailpipe located at the rear of the vehicle, where exhaust gases have little or no chance of entering the passenger compartment.
The fuel and engine management system supplies the proper mixture of air and gasoline to the engine while reducing harmful vapors and exhaust pollutants. According to Car Care Council, a little preventative maintenance can save you from unnecessary fuel costs.
The heater is part of the HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning) system. The primary function is to provide you comfort while operating your motor vehicle. If you are experiencing an engine operating at higher than normal temperatures, visit the engine cooling system link above in the previous section.
The ignition system creates the spark that ignites the fuel and air in a gasoline engine. Spark plugs must be replaced at the service intervals recommended by your vehicle's manufacturer to help maintain a healthy ignition system. According to Car Talk, "What happens if I don't [replace spark plugs]? Your engine will start to misfire and run poorly, performance will suffer, efficiency will decrease, and emissions will dramatically increase. Your car may also be difficult to start...If you don't remove these spark plugs until they're due to be changed, you might find it extremely difficult or even impossible to remove them when the time comes."
The starting system includes the ignition switch, starter motor, battery, and connected wiring components. The charging system includes the alternator, voltage regulator, and connected wiring. The starter motor rotates the engine until it can rotate on its power.
The steering system enables you to steer your vehicle in the direction you desire.
Your vehicle's suspension system is often referred to as the "ride and handling system." It is the system that connects the frame of the vehicle to the wheels. The ride and handling system supports the vehicle's weight, keeps the wheels in contact with the road, and helps provide a comfortable ride for passengers.
