RCV Valve is causing this issue. Refrigerant Control Valve. $40.00 part but most mechanics will want to replace your compressor.

Hi I bought a used volve about 6 months ago. Lately when I use the ac the far left vent blows out warm air and it also is not blowing out as cold of air as it used to. I was going to add some more freon...


> I was going to add some more freon and the gauge that came with the can does not fit the valve. There are normally two valves on the AC lines; one is the low-pressure valve (inlet to the compressor), the other is a high pressure line leaving the compressor and going into the exchanger. The low pressure valve is the point at which Freon is added and pressure is measured with a single valve. The high pressure valve is customarily used only by service personal to determine compressor performance and should never be used to recharge the system; they are intentionally different to avoid rupturing the the Freon container. Trace all of the lines to be sure if you have found the right one to use for recharging and measuring the 'low' pressure side.

Hello everyone I have a 2004 nissan titan and when I am travelling down the highway the ac blows warm I have checked the freon level and it has the proper amount of refrigerent in it and the clutch fan...


Hey Wb, You say you checked the pressure and its ok. Have you checked to see if the pressure is actually freon or just hot air..(this is from a personal experience with the same symptoms) Let some of the pressure off the system while it is running..(the low pressure valve) and if freon does not immediately come out.- Just hot air..let it bleed until freon comes out .. (mine was overcharged and I had to let out A LOT of air out of the system until freon started coming out).. try this and see if it helps.. ...mine is working fine..blowing cold air 24/7 after this .. with no other steps,,,

Ac works fine except when i exclerate or go up a hill, it seems to cycle or stop blowing...then the continues to work fine but this is happening more often . I just got my ac repaired 3 months ago. it...


sounds like u still have a leak and need to have freon added or wasnt fully charged --when ur at idle or lower rpm the compressor will circulate the freon fine and will not cause a problem when u put a load uphill passing or increase the rpm a little more the compressor sucks more and circulates more freon which gives u a lower suction pressure if the suction pressure gets to low the the a/c protects itself and the engine by turning off [low pressure safety] cycling if had done 3 months ago bring back and have tested or u can buy some freon and add to ur system yourself

I need to add 134 to the system, it's not blowing cold


First of all, you need to check if the belt is tight, if the electric clutch is turing on and off with the switch, and if there are bubbles in the receiver/dryer cylinder sight glass.
If you add so much freon that the pump has liquid in it, it could blow it up.

But you buy freon with a short hose and valve.
Wear eye protection and gloves.
Then you attach the can to the valve on the side with the thick hose.
There will also be a valve on the skinny side hose, but do not attach freon there. That is only for measuring with a gauge.
The open the freon valve and start the engine and AC.
If the can frosts up, you can put it in a bowl of warm water.
Watch the sight glass until the bubbles stop.
Then close the freon valve.
Turn off the engine and AC.
Disconnect freon can.

1999 Dodge Ram AC blows cold at idle and up to 40 mph


Most likely the orifice tube/expansion valve needs to be replaced. Depending on the type of system, you will have one or the other but they both perform the same function. The expansion valve is typically located at the evaporator inlet. Orifice tubes can be located at the evaporator inlet, in-line between the condenser and the evaporator, or in the condenser outlet. You will have to discharge the system in order to replace. Not very hard to do.

CALL THE CAR DEALER AND ASK THEM WHERE IS THE VALVE TO FEED THE FREON AND FIND OUT WHAT TYPE OF FREON.
