1999 GMC Sierra 1500 A/C blows warm air when idling

The A/C on my 1999 GMC Sierra 1500 blows hot air when I'm idling. When it's moving, it blows cool air, but not cold. I'd like to try recharging it, but I cannot find the low pressure port on it. Can you help me find it? I've read some people saying that it's near the grille, but I can't find it. I think it's low on R134, but the compressor doesn't shut off and on like it has on my other car when it was low. Does it need to be recharged, or is there something else going on with it?

The low pressure port is the charging port, this port is either in the low pressure line or the accumulator that the low pressure lines to to (can shaped object), the low pressure line is the larger of the two lines from the compressor.

What is causing the heater in my 2002 GMC Sierra to blow cool air when in idle? It sometimes takes 15 minutes or longer to blow warm once I'm driving but it still doesn't blow hot, just a little warm. ...


It could be a few things. First try to see if all of the vacuum lines are connected. It there is a leak the system will not work properly. It could also be the heater switch causing the problem.

Check coolant level. Check for heat at the heater hose going from water pump to heater core at firewall. Check to see that cable is moving coolant control valve from the closed to open position. Low mileage so it shouldn't be plugged heater core.

Heater not blowing warm air. Thermostat has been


Check the water control valve behind the engine close to the firewall. This valve opens and closes to allow hot coolant to enter the heater core. It is usually connected to the heater controls with a cable. When you adjust the heater control for heat, a cable activated lever on the valve should move and allow coolant to move through the valve. The cable from the heater control can come loose from the lever, or the valve itself can become corroded and hard to move.

Have the engine fans and relays checked. If the engine fan does not come on when the a/c compresser kicks in then the air that comes out the vents will be warm.

AC not up to speed


It sounds like you have a fan clutch problem. You can test this by letting the truck idle, place a fan in front of the radiator, on high and see if it cools better. Good luck.

NO HEAT


Your heating system is run by your cooling system. If your cooliant is low then you are not going to get adiquiate heat disapation to your heater core. So check the entire cooling systerm. Your water pump (low flow), hoses (leakage), you already checked the thermostat & heater core. So other than that I don't know.
