A/C blows hot on 1999 Chevy Cavalier

I've had the freon emptied and recharged. The air blew cold for a few days, then started blowing hot, again. Someone told me it could be the cooling fan relay. Does that sound right?

That could be the case. The other problem could be that you are losing freon for some reason. Find someone who can check the freon level for you to make sure that it is not leaking. The valve to fill the freon can get bent which allows for the gas to escape and then you run into this problem.

Air not blowing


You just need a recharge.Go to an auto parts store and get a single can of R12 and the recharge line.Find the fitting on the AC line that the recharge line fits on(there's 2 but only fits 1)and hook the end on the can then on the fitting.THEN screw the puncture screw into the can lid to puncture the top of can,then turn that screw back out to release the Freon into the line and into system.To be sure you get all the Freon out of the can,stick the can in a small bucket of hot water while it's recharging your system.That's an old timers trick I use and it works.Once empty,remove the line from the fitting on the system first,remove the can from the line and save the recharge line.Ya may need it again one day.Engine must be running with AC on full when recharging the system.Stay Cool dude.

If this was happening to me.... I'd goto an airconditioning re-gas centre and get them to check for gas leaks. In my old commodore the Evaporator Core was leaking and causing some of the issues you have mentioned.

you have moisture in the system this causes your expancion valve to freeze up an stop working, thats why it works for sort time and when it de-freezes stars working again. you need to do a EVAC & RECHARGE with a good AC service equipment, specially attention to pull vacumm por at least 20minutes so you get all moisture out of the system.
Good luck

The air blows hot


Probably have a leak in the ac system. Recharge it with a can of freon and if it doesn't blow cold again for long then you've got a leak somewhere

My 2001 chevy cavalier was serviced last year for over heating and the a/c unit not blowing cool air. It has a new radiator but the fan has stopped turning and the a/c blows hot only. Ive tried re-charging...


might just be a bad engine coolant temp sensor , it tells car computer engine temperature and computer controls fans , as for recharging a/c , did you pull system under vacuum ? to check for leaks ? vacuum also helps remove air to get a better charge because air expands

1995 Chevy Suburban blows cold once charged then hours later hot


Its a leak ...probably concealed like in an evap housing or rear air unit and lines (if it has that). Prob at this juncture I would remove all the freon and bring system into a vaccuum with a pump and see if it will hold vaccum for an extended period of time. A bad leak will not hold srong vacuum very long and much cheaper than wasting expensive and enviromental un0friendly refrigerants.

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.

My a/c is blowing hot air in my 1999 Chrysler Cirrus and 134 freon didn't work.

Ac clutch


sounds like the system is either low or out of refrigerant. There is a low pressure switch in the system to shut it down in the event of freon loss. First , verify , then test for a freon leak. Once repaired, and recharged, will blow cold air again.
