  1. Air Con leak? UV dye in engine bay

    Bugs, faults and irritations (8G)
    Hi all, 2008 Civic 1.8 ES owner. Previously had a corroded condenser so got that replaced back in Jan.

  7. Faults Air conditioning not working

    Engines and Transmission (8G)
    Hello. When I press my air conditioning button I cannot hear the compressor engaging like usual. My blowers work inside the car. And my engine fan works when the car is about to over heat in traffic. Could it be that the pressure is low in the system? Not charged it since I've had it. About...

    Hello all, I've got a niggly problem with my air conditioning. It sesm sometimes I have to turn it on and off a few times to get the cooling to actually 'wake up' and when it does it's very efficient. I'm wondering if it's a sticking relay - has anyone had the same issue. No warnings or...
