2001 Isuzu Rodeo V6 - can't charge R-134a

My a/c has been blowing mildly cool air for the last few months, with a proper R-134 charge. Well today after driving for about five hours, I stopped for gas, and when I cranked the engine back up, all I got was hot air (~115 degrees). I hooked up the recharge kit when we got home and put a fresh can on the hose. Low pressure side before I popped the can was 15 pounds with the engine running, a/c on full blast and compressor engaged. I can pressurize the hose from the can, but for some reason it doesn't seem to be going into the system. I've been trying to fill for almost an hour now and still at 15#.

Help! Thanks!

You need to disconnect the wire connector at the high pressure switch, jump the tow wires in the connector with a paper clip, start the car and you should be able to add your refrigerant. Most compressors will not start when too low.

You have a very dangerous condition. Do not start engine. Problem is in fuel injection system. Probably cold start valve stuck wide open and dumping excessive gas in system. Have car TOWED to shop. Bill

SOURCE: Air conditioner problem in a 2001 Isuzu Rodeo Sport

If your dryer is bad it will be frosted up on the bottom. It sounds like to me that is is low on freon you can add some if you have a manifold gauge set. or you can get a recharge kit at Wal-Mart the kit will have instructions with it read them first it will tell you where to hook up the hose
Hope this helps

SOURCE: 1995-96 Isuzu Rodeo transmission swapable?

No they are not compatible. They changed the crank between 95 and 96. I have a 96 that needed an engine swap and the dealer that I bought it from was paying for the engine, he bought a 95 engine and after a month of trying the mechanic said no way no how, the crank between the two is different.

Where is the mass flow air sensor located at for my 2004 Isuzu rodeo


no engine stated,
my guess v6, as ONLY the V6 had one,
and not all V6 have it.
so, NO V6 size stated or the
8th digit of your VIN code stated, (engine code)
so no answers possible.
there are at least 4 V6 engines generations used.
the last engine is the most comlexe with VVT (3.5L)
it has MAF, and is between the TB and the air cleaner.
on all cars with a MAF, some are in the TB.
facts all
post a vin
i post photos,
sorry not posting them all on both engines 2004

TB = Throttle body, that magic place that sucks huge air.

My 2001 isuzu rodeo keeps over heating ?


First of all make sure you bleed all the air out properly , air locks can cause the cooling fan not to work . Is the cooling fan working? If all this is ok does the whole system get hot like the radiator and interia heater if not id be looking at the waterpump

Why won't the air conditioner blow air?


The very first thing you need to do is to check for fuses or say faulty fuse. Secondly check fan which starts along with air conditioner, it might be manually switched off or the fan may have been clogged. Also reason can be lack of refrigerant - charge your air conditioner with refrigerant. Last thing you need to check is cooling coil - the cooling coil may freeze if there is no refrigerant in the system.

2000 NISSAN 4X4 P/U A/C SYSTEM WILL BLOW COLD WHEN OUTSIDE AIR TEMP IS COOL, WHEN HOT OUTSIDE AIR BLOWS HOT.


your auxillary fan is not working. this fan is responsible for cooling the freon that is being circulated in your cooling system... check if there are any loose wires in front of the engine bay.

the auxillary fan is located right beside your radiator fan.

My a/c in my car in blowing hot air after had a/c checked as gas


Unfortunately you might have a coolant leak, in spite of the A/C inspection. I'd get a second opinion from another mechanic. Have the mechanic check to make sure your condenser is not clogged with dirt, rocks and road grime, preventing the A/C system from cooling properly. Notorious problem for automotive air conditioning.

Check to see that the fuse to the A/C is not blown and that the compressor is cycling on and off as it should. If the the A/C pressure switch was not inspected, it should be inspected and tested for proper operating.

One last thing. Also have the mechanic check the pressure in the A/C system, and that there is sufficient refrigerant in the system.

Hope this helps.

Good Luck.
