Pressure switch might have failed. Or the system was overfilled.

My vw golf gt tdi 1.9 is kicking black smoke out. Could the air intake manifold cause me these problems?

Is this all the time or mostly on kick-down?
if there is always thick black smoke it suggests a build up of burnt coke in the system. Unlikely to be air intake related as it is from spent/burnt fuel. A good service of the plugs and filters should resolve this

To replace the condense of A5 VW Golf 4 cylinder air conditioner and change oil in pump

To change the condensor undo the lines and mounts and remove.Replacing is opposite proceedure. Replace the air dryer/ receiver at the same time. There should be no need to change the compressor oil as it moves trhrough the system with the gas and there is no sump as such.

It doesnt blow cold air.Just been regassed...

If it wasn't blowing cold air before and after the recharge, it could be the thermo expansion valve.

The AC system is a sealed system. So if it is low on refrigerant it means you have a leak somewhere in the system. If there is no leak and you added refrigerant the system, it is probably overcharged.

Im assuming that the compressor kicks on. If it didn't you wouldn't have been able to charge the system.

The a/c compressor doesnt kick in when air is turned on. What should I check first? Thanks in advance....Kev.

It's probably out of coolant. the best thing to do is take it to a shop that is trained on how to work on car air conditioner systems. It will have to be checked for leaks before it is charged.

Air blowing out of Air Conditioner but it is not cold!

when you regassed did you check for leaks and could you see flow through the sight glass. if the answer is yes to both i would say the compressor has had it.

souns like you have a leak in the air con gas system if not up to pressure it will not allow power to the air con pump to start the process you may need to get it regassed and checked for leaks

VW Mk 4 golf heater fan settings 1-3 not working but 4 does. Can anyone help? The fan will only work on the higest setting but does not work on the lower setting. I can hear the A/C kicking in when you...

It's most likely to be the resistor, it's a common problem. You should be able to get one at your local motor factors or breakers yard and they are generally easy to fit. Not sure of its position on a golf - check a haynes manual or ask your local garage.
