2006 ford focus airconditioner couldn't cool contineously
The Airconditioner of 2006 ford focus cools for some time and then it ceases to cool especially when it is allowed to stay on continueosly whilst the car is in low speed in the city. Works okay when it is started in the morning.

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.

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.
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
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
