    did you have the system pressure tested for leaks and how much freon (or whatever they use nowadays) in.

Hi!

Well i think its a compressor problem. Check out if there is no gas leak in any of the cooling pipes. Its long since brought your esteem, check the blower speed also, it also makes a diffrence in cooling.

Fitting a new climate control system would reduce your mileage and can even make you change your battery and reduce the life of your engine.

Thanks

    Fitting it with a compressor from baleno(or buying a new esteem compressor) would be a good option. Try and buy esteem's compressor only. I know they have stopped manufacturing it but still esteem's parts are available in the market.

Hello, Am sure your day is good. I had earlier raised this concern:I have a challenge with the AC system of my 2007 Volvo XC90. When the AC is turned on, its cools outside(bur net area) around the pipes...


I am concerned that what you have been told may not be exactly true. If the pipe to the inside of the car from the ac compressor is frosting up ( water condensation) then it has a low pressure area which indicates that the gas is getting through the evaporator ( bit inside the car). If the evaporator was blocked then the low pressure switch would switch off the ac compressor (low gas/no gas)
because the gas could not get past the blockage then the high pressure switch would stop the compressor because of high head pressures which can damage the compressor.
The most logical thing is that the TX valve is partially blocked or the thermostat setting is wrong.preventing sufficient gas flow into the evaporator to cool the car.
If you car has a climate control system then that unit may need checking. Best have an accredited ac specialist shop check the system
And to answer you question as to possibility of flushing or cleaning or washing out the evaporator. this is not a possibility as there can be no moisture what ever inside an ac system. However you can check if the cooling fins on the evaporator are blocked with an oily type dust then you can use an ac fin cleaner . This will allow the air to pass through the evaporator fins and help boil off the gas from the TX valve.

91honda prelude ac pressures good, no cooling


Sounds like low charge or poss defective AC compressor or the expansive valve has moisture in it. Did you pull a vacuum on the system for 45 minutes before adding refrigerant?

A/c compressor was replaced and recharged. blows cold for a few days, and rear ac not atall. Compressor now cycles on and off and does not get cold at all. has been cleaned and recharged twice now. ...


Yes. A thermal expansion valve (often abbreviated as TXV or TX valve) is a component in refrigeration and air conditioning systems that controls the amount of refrigerant flow into the evaporator. If it is malfunctioning it will limit the amount of freon available to cool the vehicle.

However, the shop should have found this issue initially, so I would only pay for the part; not labor. Call your local dealer (Chevy Tahoe/Suburban is the same) and ask what the cost is. Price sounds high. They are avl. for under $100 online.

Above solution is correct, had the same problem with mine and it was the expansion valve.

Hey I am haveing a problem with My 2500HD ac system. I have changed The Condensor, evaporator, and the Compressor. I have charged it to the correct levels. It blows cool air, but it doesn't get cold....


Did you change the Receiver/ Drier and the Orfice Tube/ Expansion Valve? The Receiver/ Drier takes moisture out of the system and the Orfice Tube/ Expansion Valve controls the Hot/ Cold air. If that is bad it may not be opening or closing fully which would not let your A/C get as cool as it supposed to.

Have problems with a/c not cooling on nissan maxima 1999 year .has good pressures on gages .not cooling inside ,doors on box seem too be working .compressor is working .any ideas on what maybe wrong


You say the pressures are good?The low side on this vehicle need to be lower than most,because it has a expansion valve,it needs to be around 30 psi,to about 35,if it is not,and the freon level is correct,then the expansion valve is bad.If this was helpful,please rate,thank you.

Ac compressor does not turn on when car has been sitting & it's hot outside. Works fine in the morning.


either the freon charge is about 1/3 low, or the expansion valve needs to be replaced. Freon is getting into the evaporator, but not in great enough volume to cool the air unless it is coming in cool to start with. check your ac charge, and if it is full, then have it emptied, change out the expansion valve, and recharge it

AC SOMETIMES COOLS


It is possible that the AC compressor clutch cycling is getting stuck in the off mode, this can be caused by a sticking expansion valve or a defective AC clutch control relay. One note u said u added more refrigerant to the system, if u over charged it you may cause damage to the compressor a $400 part and equal labor to replace, it might be a good idea to have the system charge checked by a shop that does AC work.

A/C blowing hot air. Compressor activates and system has pressure.


Could be the expansion valve. That's what allows the temperature to actually drop in the system - the contents of the AC system are under pressure, and are at a certain temperature. When the freon goes through the expansion valve, the pressure drops suddenly and dramatically, which "flash chills" the freon, allowing the air to blow cold. If it fails, you may get lukewarm air from the AC despite everything else working. Also though, check to see whether the AC evaporator fan (underhood) is working - on some cars, if it doesn't turn on, the compressor won't be run enough to cool the air.
