Question about 2004 Mazda 6

2004 Mazda6 AC blowing warm air

Originally AC would feel ok in the mornings when the temp is in the 70's outside, but no cold air when the afternoon hits. I thought the freon may be low, so I added some with one of the cans you can get at Wal Mart - probably a bad idea, because then I could not get any cold air.

Now, just listened to it for a few minutes sitting idle. The compressor makes the click noise like it turning on, then nothing. About 2 times over a 3 - 4 minute period, it did turn on for 10-15 seconds (blowing cold air) before it shut back off. Is the compressor bad, or is there possible a less expensive solution?

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

Air cinditioning wont stay on, it switches to heat and wont shut off


What do you mean when you say it wont shut off? is it blowing hot air or do you just feel a lite flow of hot air even if you have the settings to cold?

If this is the problem that you always feel hot air at low flow and the ac goes to hot air then i would say one of two things, first if you have the selector to cold and you feel hot air then there may be a problem with the blend door, this door move to allow hot or cold air, the door may be broken or just a bad motor that controls it. keep in mind if the ac system shuts down for any reason the air then will be warm, it will be about the same temp as outside and maybe a little hotter.

this problem almost sounds like the ac compressor shuts off and then you are getting the outside air which is hot, there are many reasons for the compressor to shut off, it could be the compressor clutch heating up and disengaging , this would be due to a bad compressor clutch.

another reason is the fans are not working, the best thing to do is when the system starts to blow warm check and see if the compressor is running, start engine and look at the front of compressor, with ac off the front of it will not move, and then with ac on the front will spin, check it out and let me know, if it blows warm air and ac is not working then it may be compressor problem but if you are getting warm air and the compressor is spinning then it may be a door problem.

This is hard to check with out testing the system, so i listed a few things to check and let me know the out come. also the ac blows cold for how long before it gets hot air blowing out of the vents, good day.

I have a V70- 2000- about 2 years ago my AC lights flashed and the AC would not work, had the motor replaced. Now my AC blows cold air, never very strong but in the afternoon, when the temp outside is...


sounds like you have a leak concern if they are adding freon

however, it also sounds like a restriction in the system and/or a defective TXV

do you have pressure gauges... this is the only way to diagnose an a/c system without just throwing parts at the concern

A/c works fine in the morning, blows out vents at 55* - 59*. later in the day, and as it gets hotter outside, a/c blows hot air. What's up?


could be slightly low on charge-or cooling fan is not working-as the temp outside goes up the ac needs to be more efficent to blow cold air--and really 55 is not that cold--depending on outside conditions should be able to blow at low to mid 40 s

My kia spectra was making a loud squeeling noise and it has stopped but now my Air conditioner will not blow cold air ( only blowing warm to room temp. air)...is it my fan belt?


it sounds belt related. i am not sure if this vehicle has a seperate belt for the ac compressor, but if so, it sounds possible that the compressor seized and tore the belt off. have a look

AC blown warm air


This one is a difficult one to say. You could have a bad ac unit on the cars engine. Also when it goes back to 72 degrees your car is just displaying the temperature inside the car one of the features of a digital adjustments on these types of cars. Also you could have a leak and therefore not getting the cold air you wanted.

2000 isuzu rodeo, ac blows outside air temp, i tried to recharge. when i connected unit the gauge read 70 psi. i let out psi to 50. put the charge in and it took 90% of can and read 55 psi. it still blows...


COULD BE A FEW DIFFERENT THINGS. HAVE YOU TRIED TO SWAP THE A/C RELAY FOR ANOTHER? IT COULD BE A BAD ACCUMULATOR SWITCH OR A CLOGGED ORIFICE TUBE, OR A DEFECTIVE LOW PRESSURE CUT-OFF SWITCH. TOO MANY TO LIST. TRY THE RELAY AND LET ME KNOW. HOPE THIS HELPS. BEST OF LUCK. THANKS FOR USING FIX-YA AND HONEST RATING IN ADVANCE.

Fully warmed up; blowing hot and cold; Suzuki XL-7


Its just a vent damper plate not operating, it's like a gate which controls the flow of air,,usually they are operated by vacuum, or cables.
Service center time, unless you are handy with your own repairs.
