My 2006 Honda Civic doesn't have such a timer, but the owner's manual says: The system should be left in fresh air mode under almost all conditions. Keeping the system in recirculation mode, particularly with the A/C off, can cause the windows to fog up. Switch to recirculation mode when driving through dusty or smoky conditions, then return to fresh air ...

You can think of this as a safety feature. It is not recommended to keep the recirculation button ON for long time, specially if there is more than 1 person in the car. You will use up all the oxygen. The car body is not perfectly sealed, so the actual chances of you dieing inside the car is pretty slim. But you would still feel symptoms of low oxygen. With ...

If the Mustang is automatic with the 4.6l engine get a computer from a Crown Victory it is 4.6l automatic also and PATs free and the computers are all over EBAY, I put one in a 97 Mustang and solve my PATs problem.

My guess is to keep the a/c unit from icing up. By putting it on a timer you are inducing warmer air after 5 minutes.

There is no way to put sealant around the outside of the housing to get it to stop leaking. You could possibly put a sealant within the coolant system, such as Bar's Radiator Stop Leak, which may or may not solve your leak issue temporarily (may solve it permanently, but I never trust it). Your better bet is to just replace the gasket. This is a ...

I'm not a mechanic but I think what you have been told is true. That is, the wrench light is a separate system that will not appear with OBD2 code readers. If you think this stinks, I agree. For the record, I own a OBD2 reader. It has come in handy for my 3 cars. Recently, the wrench came on (for the first time ever) with my Ford Freestyle. The car ...

There are two possibilities here as I see it. First, it could be that the thermostat is bad and stuck in the closed position, not allowing hot coolant to flow into heater core. You could easily check to see if this happening by first finding the heater hoses which route from the engine through the firewall of the engine compartment. With the engine warmed ...

Yes, it's technically possible. but in general it requires you or an electrician to make up custom wiring harnesses. In other words: you can't just install the head unit and expect it to work. That would be too simple. Real men have to suffer before they're allowed to enjoy something. The good news is that Parrot thought of this and offers the UNIKA ...

The belt should turn too if they are tight enough, sliding tells that the pulley is worn down or the belt is not tight enough/is also worn down. The fan pulley also includes the waterpump which will provide resistance at higher speeds so it should not slip at all.

I do a fair bit of ICE (although mostly European and Japanese cars) and from my experience, unless one of the aftermarket providers has built an adapter you are usually out of luck. There are just too many different standards (or lack of them) for how steering wheel controls talk to head units. That said - replacements are often very cheap, or you can often ...

I don't know that it has a standard name. I would call it a fender molding. Per the parts diagram and description here (http://bit.ly/1wl5xii), it may be called a "lower molding without wheel opening molding".

I would check the trans fluid level and engine oil level. It is possible that the tranny fluid got hot and bubbled out the vent. If the fluid level is low I would just add some to get it to the correct level. At this point any damage is already done. If the tranny is shifting ok, but fluid has a strong burnt smell it may be worth flushing and replacing it. ...

The check engine lights need to be read and cleared if you haven't done it already. This can only be done with an OBD-II scanner. If you don't have one, take it to an Autozone or the like. They can do it for you and will usually do so for free.
