Question about 2004 Hyundai Elantra

1 Answer

2005 Hyundai Elantra A/C

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.

HI there #1 before you put freon in did use a vacuum pump and pull too the right vacuum
specification if not you have air in the system.
#2 if you put 4 cans of freon you over charged the system must vehicles a/c systems use 1lp 5oz
you must remove freon first and use vacuum pump and put system in vacuum for abut 1hour
too mack shore system is air and muster free.
ones that is don you can charge system be careful not too over charge OK

good luck

Sounds like a lack in freon. May need to charge the system.

I would start with adding freon to system, from what you are stating freon is low. You may have a small leak, so use freon with leak seal, also use freon with gauge so you dont over fill and blow orings.

Air conditioner on 2002 Pontiac blowing hot air, although freon is not low...also makes a clicking noise.


Take it to a garage and have them evacuate the system and refill with refrigerant. you have air and non condensibles in the refrigerant system.

Sounds like there is either

1. Too much freon in there

or

2. Not enough freon in there.

Freon (R) being freon or low CFC equivalent.

Sounds like the system is working fine, then the condensor or compressor gets too cold and freezes up (or gets WAY too hot). when you turn the A/C off, the system has time to stabilize and return to a more 'normal' condition.
