You need to have it diagnosed by a professional. These are complicated systems even to a trained tech. You may be over or under charged, have a clogged expansion valve, have a leak or many other issues. This model has a rcv refrigerant control valve inside the compressor which regulates the pressure of the compressor. If you notice the compressor never shuts off like conventional auto a/c's do the only time the clutch works is when you turn it on or off. Can be complicated.

Try to jump the hoses that come from your motor to inside your car for the heater. In this way you can test. The problem can be your heater air can be mix it with the cold air.

    sorry mate, i meant to check the regulator if it is " climate" , if it is a climate control, then the ragulator or the valve have some problems.

1995 Buick Century blowing hot air.


A mechanic would check the system with a set of pressure gauges. If the compressor is running, the low side would read around 30psi and the high side would be around 250psi. That is how you know if the system is full of freon or not.
You may have to get a professional diagnosis to proceed. If you replace the compressor, the accumulator needs to be replaced and a vac pump is used to pull all of the air out before the freon is added.

Air Conditioner Not Functioning


It may still be low on freon. It can hold several cans.
High side should be around 250psi and low around 35 or 45psi at idle if system is charged.
If you raise engine speed the low can drop below 20psi and switch off the compressor if the system is low on freon.
Could be a restriction in the system, bad relay, or bad a/c compressor-clutch.

Air conditioner compressor comes on but blows hot air


Sad to say, but you have to get a new condensor, what's more important you must get your lines flushed out, if not it will affect your compressor, then you're talking big bucks. See if a local guy can also add and auxilary fan to the front of your radiator, It will really help circulate the air and you'll have less wear and tear on your complete air con units. Also, make sure you change that air con filter. That little filter is also important. Good luck and drive safe. Hollywood Harv

Air condition blows hot air but it has freon


You may have created an over charged condition and at this point the a/c compressor will cut off on high head pressures. This can be verified by installing gauges to the systems high and low side service taps and reading the pressures.An overcharged system will start the compressor briefly but soon cuts off once pressure goes to 350 - 400 lbs on the high side. Acceptable pressures for this system should be no greater than 250 high and low suction should drop to 40-50 psi.You might recover the charge and evacuate the system,then try bringing the charge back to proper level.A sight glass in the reciever drier really helps determining proper fill.Once all bubbles have dissipated from the sight glass during charging ,one should stop at that point to avoid overfilling.Too much freon is worse than a low charge especially in hot ambient conditions....

If it blew cold air after freon added and 5 days later blew warm, you may have a leak in the system. Also check and see if compressor comes on if not you may have an electrical issue, relay for compressor,coil on compressor, etc.......

My A/C will not blow cold on 2002 jetta 1.8t


The problem is the temperature blend door. Very costly to fix. I have a 2003 with the same problem. A diverter flap door that allows it to switch over from heat to air, is broken. The part is 400.00 and the labor itself is 800.00. The whole dash needs to come off. Everything is behind the dash. Sorry!

1995 j30 air conditioner just blows hot air. set to auto and no noise from compressor. happened all at once, working when car was shut off but not working when restarted. compressor going bad or a switch...


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.

Today the A/C stopped blowing cold air yesterday it was fine, Nothing but hot air was coming our of vents


Look for leaks around the A/C hoses and compressor. You may just be low on Freon. When the pressure in your lines (amount of gas in your ac lines) is low, the ac will just cutout hence blowing hot air. try adding some freon.
