1997 Chevrolet Cavalier A/C does not work

1997 Chevrolet Cavalier blows hot air 24 hours after recharge. I bought a recharge kit with sealant and proper amount of refrigerant for the system, and double checked i used the recharge kit properly yesterday afternoon. The A/C worked properly for a couple of hours yesterday. Unfortunately, today my car no longer blow cold air. Do I need a new Compressor, Condenser, Accumulator?

    Does this kit explain how to check for leaks -- it sounds like you have one.

Your compressor's shaft seal is the most likely culprit. If you can find someone to replace the shaft seal and body gaskets in your compressor, you should be fine. Cavaliers use a V5 compressor, an excellent but leak-prone when unused.

A/c blowing hot air with low pressure


The first thing to do would be go to your local auto parts store and buy an air conditioning recharge kit. Provided your vehicle isn't too old, they sell recharge kits that require no tools.

If their is a leak anywhere while you recharge, you will know.

Try recharging the air conditioning first, it is very simple and the kits come with simple instructions.

If there are no leaks, your A\C will blow cold air again. As for the pressure, if it continues to slightly blow air you may be looking at a new air compressor unit or a vaccum line. A new unit will run you anywhere from $200-$2000 dollars plus labor depending on the vehicle.

If the recharge works, at least you will have slightly blowing cold air rather than hot and you can continue that way until the unit fails.

Air conditioner blowing warm air in 2005 chevy cavalier


Possible that it just needs refrigerant. They have ac recharge kits that are pretty fool proof. I'd try that. That generally takes care of it on my car. Hope that helps.

Its possibly the thermostat , check by watching the temperature gauge if equipt with one and see if the engine is around 195 deg F or 95 deg C if not the thermostat is open all the time , ( stuck open ) not allowing it to get hot enough to get heat, this is the most likely cause.. Another is air temp door not moving to the hot position. But you said no other problems...The heater core may also be plugged or restricted , you can flush it out with a garden hose ect. good luck and hope this was helpful...

Cavalier A/C isn't working.,


If you see wet spots on the compressor it would be an indication that the compressor is bad, however buy a can or refrigerant with leak dye in it and see if you can see where the red dye is comming out and that will be your answer. Rather than guessing which one it is check it that way so you will know what it is then I can tell you how much to fix it.

1999 Chevy Cavalier A/C blows hot air


More likely the recharge blew a o-ring and you have a leak. When your Cavalier was blowing hot air and a recharge fixed it that means it was low on freon which lets o-rings dry out, go back to the shop and have them leak test it. They use a pressurized dye to find the problem. If it's blowing it's not the cooling fan relay, they may have meant compressor relay but I'd have a leak test done first it's not expensive and easier that chasing unknown possibilities.

2001 cavalier air conditioner blowing hot air


Why do they want to replace the compressor?noisy?If you can put a charge on the ac then it's hot again after a day,then you have a leak.all the ac lines have o-rings where they are connected.without put dye in the system you wont know for sure.So I would try that first.

when an AC gets real hot and there is air in the system you get what is called High Head Pressure and the high pressure switch will not let the clutch engage. Need to have the system evacuated and recharged.
