ACC temperature distribution

ACC system on Auto, say 19oC. Car started cool air from vents all around, 5 minutes later fan power goes down. Another 15 minutes and fan power going up! Still cold air, this time vents to rear passengers blowing hot, very hot air :confused: .

Second problem is say a humid day. ACC on auto keeps windscreen clear. some time later windscreen starts to mist up. Switch ACC off, and then back on again screen clears. repeat every 5 minutes on a very humid day :confused: . Had several software updates and still no resolve.

Not happy any pointers would help as just bee serviced today and told oil leaks around head gasket and timing chain casing. Garage want £1450 incl. VAT :evil: !! Garage advisd that as car a 1999 model and presents itself quite well with the leather etc and is clean I take it elsewhere and trade in. Are they right? Do I call it quits before I spend money?

The £1450 is for the head gasket, timing chain (due at next service anyway) and 6 hours labour and include 10% discount.

Hmm, this is a tuffy to answer, I guess I'd be thinking, what kinda car would I get for the money its worth, or would spending out make her worth keeping?

You gotta weigh up the mileage, the history, the condition plus what you have already had done etc and make up your mind, if you love her she's worth it, if not, get rid and find an Aero ;)

Oil leaks can also be a symptom of PCV failure, do you know if the PCV system is in good order?

You can programme it yourself , they have lost your previous settings. Mine is programmed to come on in econ mode only. Have you got your owners guide handy?:confused:
