The bad smell is mold and mildew in the air distribution system, u will need to have the system disinfected, Ford has a kit to do this.

My air conditioner is blowing hot air, where is the port so that I can add refridgerant?


The charging port is located in the larger of the two hoses/lines that come from the AC compressor, the fill port will accept only the right fitting from the charging source hose fitting. Before you add refrigerant you need to locate the leak, the refrigerant doesn't just disappear, it leaks out somewhere.. My guess would be the AC compressor front seal.

Audi TT 225 aircon condenser slight leaking from top.


Hi Andy
As Roger said take it to an AC specialist and have it checked, it will probably need re-gassing. AC gas leaks show up as an oily substance.

Fault code P2106


is it the ecotec engine fitted 1.8 or 2.0./2.2l or the diesel 1.7 engine.. how long have you not used the air con for. not using it for a long time you can damage the pump the flown sensor. even the temperature sensor. but if the engine is trying to stall with the ac on then the pump may have a fault. ac should be run for 10min once a week no matter the weather. stops you having problems later.

1994 mitsubishi lancer aircon problem..is it possible to change the mitsubishi aircon motor to nissans aircon motor?


best talk to an a/con technican as there is a size/capacity requirement for compressors. While it may be feasable to fit another compressor it needs matching tx valve condensor and evaporator to work properly. He should be able to tell you if it will work or not

My mazda 6 v6 2004 smell oil when starting ventilation


The smell is typical of older Mazda aircon.
Purchase an aircon cleaning spray which is discharged into the aircon system by selecting recirc , cloing the windows for 5 minutes . This cleanses the system which is probably contaminated with bacteria.
Recharging your air con will help as well. The smell is due to evaporate condensed water mixed with sludge and bacteria .

1996 audi a4 aircon problem


You have a leak most likely, and these are typically hard to spot without test equipment. Take it back to your technician and ask him to recharge the system and perform a dye test to locate the leak. Could be as simple as a bad o-ring in a fitting, or as complicated as a seal in the compressor.

Need air conditioner recharged, what type do I use?


check the labels, but usually it's R134-a refrigerant. I suggest you might as well check for leaks. One common problem of ageing compressors is that the shaft seal leaks in due time and might need to be replaced. Check with your reliable aircon tech guy. goodluck!
