21.0 SIMPLE REPAIR - REMOVE SOMETHING - DO-IT-YOURSELF - DIY TIPS

When our air conditioner began to freeze-up, I simply took out the removable plastic fins on the side that directed the air flow. This kept the AC from freezing because the air could move more freely. Naturally I did not interfere with the filter which remained in place. I did this as an emergency measure. Sometime I will have the air conditioner thoroughly cleaned. In the meantime this was a good stop-gap solution. The AC worked perfectly.

Some older cars that over-heat in the summer can be "fixed" by simply removing the thermostat. The thermostat is designed to block the flow of water so that the engine will heat up faster. Instead of overhauling the entire cooling system which can be very expensive and time consuming, try removing the thermostat in very hot weather. The thermostat is important in cool or cold weather but not as critical in the summer. Make sure you replace it when the weather turns cool.

You must check with your local mechanic before doing this; it will not work with all cars.
