Car a/c some time not blowing cool air


Many possibilities' First- you may be iceing up. That is when the temp sensor is to far into the condenser. Pull it out a small amount at a time. Good hint is the amount of water drained on to the ground when you park it.
Second is - you may be low on freon causing the compressor to shut off when it's sensor tells it "not to run dry". Then the freon drains back to the pump and it starts all over again.
Third is - the compressor may have a problem making it run hot. There is a sensor for that too, and will turn it back on when it cools off.

Not all of these are in every system, so with out more manufacturers info, (factory, or aftermarket)it's a generic answer.

05 tc. A/C blows hot then cold. Didn't blow cold


The A/C pump ismade of three seperate components. You are correct in it being electrical, to some degree. The compressor is self turnes, & in turning moves the freon thru the condensor,dryer, evaporator, & condensor. With the engine off, you can grab the clutch on the compressor, & turn it manually. Now, to your question. When you turn on your A/C, it sends a signal to one of 3 parts on your A/C compressor. The 1st signal, is a charge to the magnet (not its nomenclature name) that pulls the clutch, quickly, into the compressor shaft, so it can start turning. Now as this signal, is working,on an intermittant basis, 1 your clutch has been damaged, not always engaging fully,causing disc wear. The activating magnet, works intermittantly, this too, strains the electrical wiring, going thru the compressor to the magnet. Now the compressor works, but, 2 components, have gotten very hot, by intermittant action. To remove them, if "fused", will be labor intensive. Thanhaving a "sealed" system, dis-assembled, then re-assembled on a mechanics work table. No matter how hard I try its never completely clean......the repaired compressor can allow harmful contaminates into a system that works, with one part not working. Once contaminates are in the system......all the components can be damaged. The mechanic, is giving you the most cost efficieant repair, that will last longest, with least possiblility of failure.

AC blows cold or hot


if it is the same thing that is wrong with my frontier. check to see if the compressor is turning on when you use the ac. if not you might have a bad connection that is intermittantly preventing the compressor from getting the signal to turn on. get a service manual and a voltmeter and you can fix.
