Question about 1998 Toyota Camry
When I turn the air conditioner on, the air comes out at different temperatures. Coldest on the drivers side window vent and warm on the passengers side window vent. Also when I turn the switch to get the air to come out by the vents under the windshield, the drivers side is cold and the passengers side is warm.
Your refrigerant charge is probably low, so not all of the evaporator (the component of an A/C system that gets cold) is the same temperature. The side where liquid refrigerant is introduced may actually be colder than normal, while the opposite side isn't cold at all.
You can buy refrigerant from an auto parts store in most (if not all) states, but may be money ahead to have it done professionally, accidents/omissions can be costly. If you fail to fix it, best case you're out the $35 for a can of refrigerant.

SOURCE: A/c problem.
jasonjacob1 is right. If the air from the A/C is not cool, the only cause is low or empty refrigerant. This means that the gas that your vehicle uses to produce cool air is gone from the system. The solution is not to recharge the system but to locate and fix the leak, then recharge the system.

there are two a/c lines that run down the fire wall under the van to the rear.right around the bottom of the fire wall the is a connection point on both lines. you will find a leak there .replace the orings and recharge system. also you will need two specail toyota tools to release the couplings.i have done this repair on several sienna's. let me know if this helps.

It sounds like a heater blend door issue inside the heater box that is actually not closing all the way to allow either cool or hot air or visa/versa.

I just replaced my thermostat in my car due to the same problem. Except mine was a 92. I figured I'd start with the thermostat and antifreeze. Then the heating core. Now I have heat.
But yet I still have no heat on the windshield.
