Question about 2010 Nissan Cube

1 Answer

Why did my Nissan Cube AC recharge leak as fast as I charged system.

I tried to recharge My 2010 Nissan Cube's A system, I used recommended product canister, It emptied and showed pressure but it also showed it obviously was leaking as fast as it was charging. Coolant simply escaped rapidly, system failed to hold any pressure . {0} I hear many complain of "crimped " connections failing. Any ideas which line it would be if that is the case , and if so is a swap out of failed part doable . {within reason} TY

You NEVER work on A/C systems,car,window unit,
roof top, commercial--- WITHOUT PROPER TRAINING

You can hurt yourself
You can ruin your car
You DID an excellent job of violating federal laws
& polluting the atmosphere

Have a repair shop REPAIR THE LEAKS, as you said
& then evacuate,leak test & recharge the system

You should not be buying or allowed to buy the wal mart
cans of refrigerant, as you can not add to a system under pressure
without the knowledge & proper equipment

Why would a car less than 4 years old have any a/c problems???

Go to the parts store and buy (for about $10) a mechanics stethescope.  It will have a metal piece you can carefully (MAKE SURE YOU DON"T PUT IN THE PATH OF A MOVING BELT OR FAN) put on the top of the A/C compressor, other end in your ears, and with a helper turning the A/C on and OFF,  you should be able to determine if the sound is coming from the A/C compressor clutch.  If so, replace the compress clutch or compressor.  Form the limited info I have, it sounds like the clutch is bad or on the way out.
If the A/C works (blows cooler than the ambient air), it's unlikely there is any problem with valves in high or low pressure side being in wrong position (especially if no one has been monkeying with them ;~) )

SOURCE: I have a coolant leak

Sounds like either the water pump or the thermostat housing. The water pump has a small hole in the bottom where the shaft comes through, when the water pump gets worn it will leak here so you know to replace the pump. The thermostat housing will be at the motor end of the upper radiator hose where it attaches to the motor. Hope this helps.

It may be temperature sensor on radiator. Dashboard gets info from it. If this sensor is not good, ac will stop and dashboard willl show some strange temperatures.

Look forward to your update, and yes, a water pump replacement sounds better than a motor replacement!

Chevy traverse 2010 ac is blowing hot air

try the ac fixes(freon recharge) found at your local autoparts store if that works for a little while you have a leak in the ac system if it makes no change it is most likely the ac compressor or the ac pulley is not engaging

2000 LINCOLN LS V8-A/C blows hot air only.

Typically the ac system is a closed system so if it is low on the charge then you have a leak somewhere. A cars A/C system contains many very small o-rings and it is possible for those to fail under normal use. I would recommend getting a A/C leak detector kit (Auto Zone caries this). It will contain some dye that is inserted with the charge. This, along with usually a pair of yellow glasses or a special flashlight can make the leaking area glow.

We have recharched the a/c 2x,hooked upto machine ,checked for leaks and all came up w/ no leaks...after recharging ,a day later it goes hot again...thing is underneath the pass side you can hear liquid of...

May have an issue with your evaporator. Its not holding charge therefore its not keeping the refrigerant cold enough or at all. Have a repairman check your ac system.

Charging issues

Recommend istall dye into system,charge with just enough r134-A (cheapest at walmart.then let ac run for 30 min. after that inspect with black light for a green substance at all ac components.if none found look at ac drain for green residue.Best way to isolate ac leaks.

Air conditioning

some parts stores sell recharge cans of 134a. most ppl believe that the ac unit in a car naturally loses charge over time. big myth an ac unit is sealed nothing can get in or out with out there being a leak. before you waist time recharging it yourself find the leak either a loose fitting or a bad O-ring in one of the snap fittings i highly recommend taking it to a ac technician so that it can be properly evacuated to remove any moisture or other contaminants that may be in the system.
