Thankfully, it was something as stupid and trivial as having a jammed filter in the cooling system
I have been dealing with car problems over the past few weeks. It started with a cracked radiator that kept leaking antifreeze until the temperature gauge on the car would climb. The engine started to smoke and I had to pull off onto the side of the interstate. I was lucky that I got the engine off before anything was permanently damaged. Even after getting a new radiator, my car problems were far from over. I had to get a new catalytic converter installed after the seasoned 1 started to fail and choke out the car’s exhaust. It had the effect of putting resistance on the engine as you’d try to accelerate, which at the time had myself and others thinking I had a faulty transmission. A catalytic converter is a fraction of the cost of a transmission, so I was glad that solved my consistent engine concerns. My cooling system was giving myself and others similar trouble recently. The strength of the air current leaving the ceiling vents was getting worse. Aside from the cooling system struggling to keep up, the air wasn’t feeling cool and dry. I started to worry and think of every worst case scenario that my mind could come up with. Thankfully, it was something as stupid and trivial as having a jammed filter in the cooling system. There was so much dust in the seasoned filter that it was suffocating the entire HVAC system. My cooling system performance went from zero to 100 in hours after I put in a new filter and turned the plan back on. I’m thankful that a $15 air filter fixed my problems so I’m not looking at a $150 repair bill on something serious.
