Cars don't use freon any more.it's been replaced by newer chemicals that don't destroy the ozone layer; RC134A. Most likely, you have a leak somewhere, that needs to be identified and repaired. You need to find someone who can troubleshoot your system. They're quite complex systems and one needs to be certified in the field in order to service them. Once a tech has isolated the problem he can give you an estimate for the repair. There are shops that specialize in a/c that are in the yellow pages or you can go to any Kia dealer. As summer advances, wait times extend considerably as lots of folks tend to put that off, so sooner is better.

If my a/c is now blowing warm air, could adding 134A refrigerant oil fix it?


It could, but before you add freon, check your fuses and relays. If you add freon, make sure you use a gage and don't over fill it. Too much freon can

How to add refrigerants? To a 2000 buick lesabre.My car is blowing hot air it went from cool to hot. and now it just hot air coming out.


look for the fitting that is the smaller of the two and is attached to the line that is the larger of the two, this is the "low" fill side, add 2 cans of r134a freon each can is one pound the system empty holds 2 3/4 pounds of freon thats 2 3/4 cans.
I would buy 1 can of leak detector/freon combo and one can of dye/freon combo, if it takes more add a small amount of a third can that has an oil mixture in with the freon that would complete your systems needs the cheapest and fastest way possible.
If you want it done to the book then you need to have a certified A/C man vacumn pump down the system, replace the reciever drier, add freon and oil to fill the system and then check for leaks.
Happy Motoring!!

2005 Altima 3.5 air conditioning blows warm air at temperature over 85 degrees.


All three of the above answers are incorrect. There is no need for freon to be introduced into the system, if the system is fully charged. If you do this, and follow the above advice, you will damage your AC compressor. What you need to do is get the vehicle hooked up to a set of refrigerent gauges at a local competent service center, and the pressures will tell your competant mechanic what to do next. NEVER 'add freon' if you are not 100% sure that the system is low.

Do I need to add coolant to the air conditioner?


You don't need to add refrigerant unless it is cycling on and off quickly or isn't getting very cool, you don't want to over charge it.

Air conditioning blowing out warm air was blowing out cold air gradually over a week it became warm


The Air-conditioning needs to be re-gassed. Take the car to an Auto Mechanic to get the Air-Conditioning re-gassed. They might also need to check it for leaks to make sure the gas stays in.

Airconditioner blows warm air


no freon , go to walmart and by a can of freon and put it in. If starts to get cold then you have a leak somewhere -- usually in the condensor Most repair shops around 350.00 to 500.00 to fix.

Ac is blowing warm air in my 2005 sierra 2500hd duramax. Any idea


Your system has R-134 Freon in it. the 134 is made up of smaller molecules than the old R-12. The R -134 permeates through the rubber parts of the system. If the system gets too low on Freon, the compressor will stop coming on.(low pressure cut out switch). Have the system serviced with an A.C. machine that can vacuum, measure the amount of Freon in the system, and add the right amount. The machine can also inject die. Later the die will show up under a black light.This will show any leaks you may have.

Ford freestyle air condtioner does blow cold air


I suspect you have a very slow leak in the system. Get a can of freon that has a gauge on it. Connect ot he low side port on the a/c line under the hood and add a can of fren and see if the gauge reads OK. If low add freon. If good, take to dealer or a/c shop.
They can add dye to find leak with a leak detecter.
