Question about 2004 Hyundai Elantra
My air starts off working then gradually gets hotter blowing only hot air. I put freon in it and now it still doesnt work and it makes a funny noise, lurches at excelleration, and is over heating (gradually climbing until almost in red zone).
Could it be the thermostat?
Sounds like your A/C compressor has failed.
Thermostat only controls coolant going through engine - not the refrigerant in the A/C system.
The bad compressor is causing extra load on the engine and making it heat up.
Unplug the compressor and take a test drive.
If it is unplugged - the clutch will not engage.
see if it heats up - and report back with your findings.
