If Freon was "added", the system may have moisture in it and that causes blockage of the expansion valveand makes the soamolies hijack oil tankers. Just kidding. Figured this would be all foreign to you anyway, no offence.
Ok, Adding freon is not really a good fix. The system should be evacuated with a vacuum pump to remove any moisture in the system which will freeze and block the expansion valve, Hence, no cooling.Having the signs of this problem already should have called for evacuation. Adding freon from a kit increases the possibility of introducing more moisture into the system. You will need to have it properly service at this point. The drier will also let go of any moistue it has trapped when evacuated for 30 minutes @ 29 in. of vacuum - good luck

97 Plymouth Breeze won't blow cold air due to freon leak.


Your AC system is a closed system, so the fact you have to put more Freon in, means there is definitely a leak. I would check it out with a mechanic.

I have a 2008 Honda Pilot. We have had issues since day 1 with the air conditioning blowing cool air, not cold. When we realized something was wrong we took the car into the dealer and they drained the...


Well I have a few Ideas for you. One, it has a leak and your dealer needs to find it..... Now if he is using a recover machine that weighs out the same refrigerant as he is putting in, I would say, ok, no leak you have other issues. One is has he used or is he using die in the oil. If so he needs to replace the receiver/drier replace the TXV valve and run a cleaning (flush) agent through your system. If you do not have a leak then there is too much oil in the system and he is adding to that oil with die every time he is adding die to the system. If you pull out all the freon then add it back the oil gets pulled out of the evap and condenser coils for a brief time, as you run the A/c it will work it's way back into the evap. where it hurts the systems ability to cool. Next Idea, is to teach you how to put freon in it your self. But first have the dealer run the flush through the system replace the drier, and see how long it last then. If he does that and that does not fix it. learn how to add freon, it is very easy.

Air Conditioner stops blowing cold air when vehicle is not moving


plus one on the cooling fan problem. if it was low on charge then as you slow down, condensor temps and line prressures would raise therefore it would cool at low speed and and not when moving since the incoming air would drop system temp,reducing line pressure and then cusing compressor to cycle. the auxillary cooling fans must be on whenever a/c is on, if not, thats your problem. get this taken care of because if you get stuck in traffic, your engine will overheat also if fans are not running
