Flaky low-coolant sensor. It'* a common problem.

1) Get the error code(*) out of the climate-control system so you know what the problem(*) are. They don't have to be _expensive_ problems.

2) Report back here and we'll see what we can help you with.

One of the keys to keeping an automobile in excellent condition is regular maintenance. Another is repair. A car becomes undesirable as you let many of the small things accumulate. Some small things require more repair effort than others, however in my opinion the alternative is worse.

What he said.

Besides, at this point you don't even know what the problems _are_ yet; it could be something as simple as a broken or disconnected vacuum line somewhere. You even have a computer that'* trying to _tell_ you what the problem is; get the error code out and you'll have a much better idea of where you stand.

Is there an Auto Zone or someplace like that near you that can get the error code(*) out for free?

Good luck. Just be sure to make clear to them that you're looking to extract a climate-control system error code, not an ECM code from the engine.

You're not trying to diagnose a Check Engine light; you're trying to diagnose a fault code in the Heating/Ventilation/Air Conditioning (HVAC) controller.
