Question about 1994 Pontiac Trans Sport
Have a 1994 Pontiac Transport 3.1. The van had all of its air conditioning repaired/replaced 2 years ago(compressor was used or a rebuild). Several months after this, the owner died. Van sat in a barn for 2 years and just a week ago it came to me. Initially the a/c was blowing ice cold. Days later, fan is blowing but no cold air. Blower is working. However, when the a/c is turned on, the compressor is not engaging. I checked fuse in glove compartment and it is o.k. Checked to ensure power plug is conected to compressor. Is there an in-line fuse? What else could it be? I am not any kind of a mechanic, I only checked things that made sense to me. Please help!!
IF THE SYSTEM HAS A LEAK, THEN THE COMPRESSOR CLUTCH WILL NOT ENGAGE. TRY PUTTING SOME 134A FREON IN THE LOW SIDE(LARGER OF THE TWO LINES). AND SEE IF THE CLUTCH PULLS IN. IF IT DOES, THEN THERE IS A LEAK SOMEWHERE. IF YOU GET THE FREON WITH THE LEAK DETECTOR DYE IN IT, THEN YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO LOCATE IT RATHER EASY. SOME CANS COME WITH A STOP-LEAK, BUT THESE TEND TO CLOG UP THE ORIFICE TUBES. HOPE THIS HELPS. PLEASE KEEP ME POSTED. THANKS FOR AN HONEST RATING AND FOR USING FIX-YA. GOOD LUCK

Souds like the refrigerant has leaked out some how ,, if its low or out compresor will not come on .. you need to find a tech with A/C guages to hook up and find out for sure.
