1994 Nissan altima the compressor comes and the blower motor works and it's full of freon. But it's only blowing heat out of the vents. What could be the problem?

How do you know the freon is could be a blend door in the dash that controls temp from hot to cold. Do you feel or hear a difference when you switch the temp from hot to cold?

Not getting cold added three cans coolant no different

My question to you would be are you adding "coolant" to your engine (anti freeze or water) or are you adding freon to your A/C (tip off was the 'three cans').

If you are adding engine coolant, - that is a lot, 'three cans' - and your engine is still over heating, you should get your system evaluated by a pro.

Working on automotive AC is dangerous for the amateur. For starters, amateurs (like me) usually don't have the equipment required to properly evaluate the status of the charge in a automotive AC system. Over charging a charged system is dangerous to you and the equipment just as is operating a undercharged system. Normally, systems are able to protect themselves from operating under charged. Normally, the reverse is not true. Fortunately, we can only 'force' in so much freon.

You have done what you can at this point. It still doesn't work. It is time to go to a professional. It would appear there is a leak somewhere, a leak that you cannot detect, nor repair. Three cans of freon went some where! Your professional AC service man or woman has the equipment to detect leaks, evacuate the system in an environmentally safe manner, repair the leak, if any, effect any other repair that may be required, inject the proper amount of 'sealer' and AC lubricating oil, change the 'drier' and recharge your system to factory specification. At the end of this service, your AC will be in tip-top condition and probably remain there for years. Best of all, you will not accidently injure yourself or your equiment using this process.

That is my suggestion my friend. I hope you find this information useful. Thank you for your interest in

Y mom has a 1996 buick century and she keeps taking it for freeon. The air blows cold for a while the it doesn't . Is there a leak or is the garage missing something. Thanks

it definitely sounds like a freon leak in the system, once a garage checks out the a/c system, they normally put in a dye in the system, and this will show where the leak is, and after the leak is fixed , they will refill the a/c with the proper amount of freon, "you are wasting your money and freon, if they don't fix the leak 1st, before adding freon, hope that this information has helped you.

The air conditioner does not feel cool. Where do I add coolant?

If the AC is not cold- you don`t add coolant. You must add REFREGERANT (freon gas)
This is added in the A/C lines by a Trained Technician. I would recommend you go to your service repair shop for this service. You may have a slow leak -but either way the shop will further diagnose your car`s A/C system..

My a/c is blowing no cool air with freon added

you are supposed to hook up the guages then run the compressor, unless you have a different model than most. this method will give you the low pressure side reading as the compressor runs, this is the important one. as all systems are different there will be slightly different pressures at rest

2001 Isuzu Rodeo LS after adding Freon A.C runs warm and cold

It sounds like by adding refrigerant to the system it may be over pressurizing. When this happens it will cycle on and off.

You will need to hook up a set of manifold gauges and monitor the high and low pressures to see what is happening.

My ac does not blow cold in my 97 cadillac deville but it does blow just not cold and its n ot the fuse what can i do?

You probably have leaked out your freon after so much time. Try adding some more Freon if it doesnt stay charged you may have bigger issues.

2004 Mazda6 AC blowing warm air

too much freon is the same as not enough freon

Have an 04 mazda6 as well, AC seems to be the cars weakness. It takes 15-20 minutes till my car is ina driveable condition (Phoenix, AZ)

Take it in for a tune up, but I doubt the AC will be any better
