    does the air volume decrease a lot? IF yes, the evaporator could be icing p doe to too cold evaporator.

    Is the compressor cycling on and off about 4 times/minute? That wold be normal at 70 degrees F.

    Have you checked charge of refrigerant to be sure it's in spec? Serviceport is in passenger fenderwell. Remove splash shield for access.

Sounds like it needs a coolant recharge. Many parts shops in the US will sell DIY AirCon recharge kits. Check the DIY sites, but basically, you can do this recharge without opening the hood-I believe the high-pressure connection is in the left side front wheel well.

Recharging airconditioner on Ford F150


At idle, with outside air temp at 80 degrees, low pressure should be around 35-40psi and high should be around 250psi.

I have a 99 grand am this summer i used the air conditioning, and very little cool air came out, alittle more when the car was going down the road. Now, it is cold outside the heat is doing the same thing....


Check to see if the intake for your heater core/ airconditioner is blocked. Its sometimes located on the passenger side of the car. Below the windshield. Sometimes there is kind of a grill below the window behind the hood. Make sure its not clogged full of leaves etc. You need outside airflow through that hole to go through your heater /airconditioner core to give you heat in winter, cool air in summer.

Air conditioning no cool air


9 out of 10 times it is because the refrigerant is low. This means you have a leak and it needs topped up or repaired. It could be a slow leak which can be repaired with a sealant ($250) or if it is a big leak..it will need to be repaired in a garage (roughly $900 and up). If it just started I would say it is a slow leak because it is a 2006, find a A/C guy that does Residential A/C and he will probably be able to help you for $250 (or less) cash - the sealant, refrigerant top up and labor. And remember to get a phone number for the guy in case it needs to be done a couple of years from now. I did this sealant to about 200 cars (1990's to 2007) and have had only 75 needed to be done every 3 years. Hope this helps.

Airconditioner cooling not workign despite three


I would check the system pressure. You can buy a leak detector. I would check all the fittings on the lines, around the compressor, condenser, and evaporator.

2002 Buick LeSabre Limited. Airconditioner cools


The dual air on this car has two temp control motors that are electronic. You need to have the car scaned at a dealer to see if it has a code for the left temp feed back circuit. If so you will need to replace the temp control motor for that side.Good Luck

Airconditioner will not cool when vehicle is idling. But does cool when vehicle is accelerating.


the compression of your compressor is getting low. there are leaky valves that is why only at high speed the compressor would work right.

is you compressor noisy? that is a sign of a bad compressor.

tnx 4 using fixya,
