Question about 2005 Kia Picanto
When i starts the air con there is a short 'sucking' sound. the wind out is not cold. Appreciate if anyone could advise. Thank you.
not sure that I have a solution yet but I do have a few follow-up questions.
1. Is the airflow diminished from what would normally be expected? If so, open the Glove Box and remove the rubber stops on either side. Lower the Glove box so that access to the air inlet filter is gained. Remove the plastic securing clip and remove the air filter. Clean or replace as necessary. Also, run the fan with the filter removed. Does the airflow get better? Has the sucking sound disappeared?
2. Start and run the engine at idle; select the air condition fan on "low." engage the AC switch and note engine idle rpm: it should first drop momentarily and then increase. If the RPM does not drop, suspect the level of Freon in the system as below operational pressure limits. Most air condition systems shut down when the refrigerant pressure drops too low.
happy to answer any further questions and apologies for the delay.
