Question about 2006 Chrysler PT Cruiser

1 Answer

MY AC IS NOT BLOWING COLD

I have a 2003 Chrysler PT Cruiser and the AC recently stopped blowing cold. I checked the HI-LO pressure switch that controls the AC Compressor and it comes on and works as it is suppose to. I purchased a can of R-134a refrigerant w/ gauge. Upon attempting to add the refrigerant, the gauge read that no refrigerant was needed and the lines had the correct amount of pressure. I check this while the vehicle was running and the AC was on. Can you please help?

    If the fan is blowing and you have no cold air it could be two possibilites, either there is not enough freon (leak in the system) or the compressor is not working. Put AC on high and check to see if you hear the compressor click on and off. If not then you probably need to have the compressor checked. Also, let it run for a while with the AC on high before you check the pressure on the Low side of the system. Make sure you don't check on the High side.

Not happy here i bought a machine for recharging A/C and now they have started selling the gas in a can in the supermarkets ,2400€ for a machine and you can buy a can for about 25€ .could have a blocked restrictor valve ,venturi valve by whatever name you call it but its in the actual pipe on american cars and on the new ones here now as well,only need a bit of dirt to move in the system and it will block this valve evan if someone has put a leak sealer in this could cause the valve to clag up and not allow the gas through.strip and clean whole system blowing it out with an airline.This gas has to be recovered with a machine and released into the atmosphere.

SOURCE: A.C. NOT BLOWING COLD

My AC went out suddenly and it turns out I got a major leak in one of the tubes in the AC system and thus warm air. When I bought the first can of refrigerant it didn't take much to get the pressure back where it should be. After some good advise I learned that my compressor was kicking on and off (you'll hear it cycle on and of every few seconds or so) and not STAYING on. Turns out because the system was drained of coolant I had to fill the tank a little at a time and actually go over the recommended pressure to force the air out of the line and get enough coolant in the system to kick the compressor on.
Turns out it was all for not...given the hole in my system it just leaked right out. I live in GA and still don't have it fixed; I was quoted $800 to fix it and figured I could live with it.

2005 pt cruiser ac is full of freon but will not blow cold air


Are all the pressures correct, 28-32 PSI on the low side pressure port? check it. If they are you may need a blend door replaced, this requires the dash be removed form the car completely.

I recently had the same problem with my car. The solution for me was to remove the coolant lines going into the firewall(be sure to let it cool down first)and blow out the heater core with compressed air.I went from blowing barely luke warm air to awesome heat...good luck
