Air conditioning doesn't cool.

Could be low on freon, a faulty low pressure switch, a relay, or the ac clutch on the compressor.

The air conditioner is blowing hot air, I have already added freone, could it be the thermometer?

A/C problems are one of the most diabolical to diagnose.... it either cools, or it doesn't... and all the reasons it doesn't accounts for every component in the system (compressor, condensor, expansion valve, pressure sensor (three-way switch), contamination, air box 'mode' doors not operating properly, door actuators stuck closed/open, A/C control module (head) malfunction, etc.
Best advice, have it properly diagnosed by a certified Hyundai Technician.

While driving when aircon is off I can notice that the power is good when I switch on the aircon it reduces the power and it runs slow as if the car is heavily loaded.

the air conditioning compressor could be failing and dragging the engine down. Or the compressor could have already failed (locked) and the compressor clutch is trying to engage a locked shaft and is dragging badly. You need to have your a/c checked out before you burn out the clutch or cause further damage to the compressor.

I have a 1992 Saturn and it runs great but if I go over 55 it runs hot and the air conditioning stops working. I noticed underneath the car there seems to be a piece missing that would connect to the...

sounds like your radiator is overheating and the a/c isn't getting enough cool air for the condensor.

The a/c problem is probably low freon (r134a) level and the overheat condition is due to a construction in the cooling system.

They are kind of separate issues.

good luck on fixing this one.

The air conditioning isn't blowing cold air anymore. It takes a while for it to get Cold, it blows cool air but not cold.

My name is Ron,and I have one solution,Sounds like you need some freon added,if that doesn`t fix ya ,the ac compressor could be weak,or blockage in ac system,or vent door not opening,or opening slowly,and not all the way...hope this helps,

Air Conditioniong not working

U may be low in Freon gas.
When Freon is low there's low pressure switch that will prevent A/C compressor clutch from engaging to protect it from failure.
So, first check Freon pressure & any leaks form lines & hoses fittings.
Even if the fan is working, that doesn’t indicate proper compressor OP'S.
Look at the compressor front side you'll see the clutch stationary while the AFT pulley moving.

Then put air-condition compressor switch to ON (Engage),
You should see the clutch engage & start rotate,
If NOT, this is very clear indication u r low in Freon.

A/c unit won't blow cold air

hi there is a belt that drives the air conditioning compressor it rides on a pulley as does the altenator visually inspect the pullies to make shure there is no belts missing if so replace now there is a relay that engages the compressor and also there is a low pressure switch that determines if there is sufficiant gas pressure in the system if the pressure has dropped re leak in the cooling system then you have no pressure to turn on compressor this would let the air conditioning to not work first check to see if you have airconditioning system pressure by looking into glass sight lens if lense is green its got enough pressure if its not green you need to replace gas inside cooling system good luck with project and keep cool
