If its a new body style (with the round front - i am assuming because it has a 5.3) then it takes 2.0lbs (.91kg). Make sure you check your fan clutch to see if it spins freely or has some drag to it. the fan clutches usually fail causing the compressors to come apart, the failed ones spin freely.

No the freon is low around 80 lbs but the compressor won't start to pump in freon.


Put more freon, so that the high-pressure sensor going to close and your compressor will run.

2009 chevy AVEO 5 ac blows hot air


The guage needs to read between 35/40 psi.. If its much higher you may be overfull, this causes it to not cool.. Fix by letting some freon out, then top it back to needed pressure.. If pressure is correct, it would be a clog in the system.. Usually an orafice tube or accumulator..good luck!

Compressor clicks 2000 chevy silverado 1500 5.3L


First thing is have the AC charge checked by a shop, if that is OK then the AC compressor low side pressure switch may be defective or the compressor relay is defective.

The ac is blowing hot air the freon charge is good but the ac still blows hot air whats the problem with my 2000 chevy silverado?


Is the compressor kicking on? If not and the pressure is in the normal range then I would say that the low pressure switch is stuck. It is located on the canister right beside of where you hook up the freon. Unplug it and cross out the plug and see if it starts then.

On my 2003 Chevy Silverado, the A/C compressor won't kick on. Just blows out warm/hot air.


The ac system may need freon added,if the system is low,or out of freon,it will not allow the ac compressor to come on.

Ac belt replacement


You must remove the fan belt first by wrenching the spring loaded tightener and the same must be done for the compressor belt.
