It depends on the type of freonyou use. If it is R134a then yes you can buy a kit and recharge it. ost recent cars use this type o freon. check your manual. Or, when you go to any parts store jsut ask them to look it up and they can tell you what it takes.

A/c blowing hot air with low pressure


The first thing to do would be go to your local auto parts store and buy an air conditioning recharge kit. Provided your vehicle isn't too old, they sell recharge kits that require no tools.

If their is a leak anywhere while you recharge, you will know.

Try recharging the air conditioning first, it is very simple and the kits come with simple instructions.

If there are no leaks, your A\C will blow cold air again. As for the pressure, if it continues to slightly blow air you may be looking at a new air compressor unit or a vaccum line. A new unit will run you anywhere from $200-$2000 dollars plus labor depending on the vehicle.

If the recharge works, at least you will have slightly blowing cold air rather than hot and you can continue that way until the unit fails.

1998 Blazer A/C blows hot air.When I turn on the air conditioner it does not click. However, hot air still comes out of the vents instead of cold.


You need to recharge your a/C in the short term to get it going again. An auto parts can sell you a recharge kit for something like $30-50. if it stops working again your a/C system had a leak somewhere and you need to get that checked out by a shop or you can inject a uv dye and find the leak yourself.

Blowing out hot air in my air conditioner for saturn L300 2005


I know how to do this personally, but instead of writing it up, here is a link to someone else's write up.... https://www.yourmechanic.com/article/how-to-recharge-the-air-conditioning-in-your-car

One thing to keep in mind... If you try this and the gauge reads zero, re-check your connections. And if it still reads zero, you may have a leak in the system. Don't waste your time and $$ by trying to use the kit. You can either try the UV leak detector kit and proceed accordingly, or take your rig to a shop and let them know that you think that there is a leak.

You can find the recharge kits in almost any auto parts store. And no, I don't have a preference on brands. I think the differences will be barely perceptible so I have never compared them. So, you don't necessarily need the most expensive. In fact, I just did a quick search for a kit comparison on the web and I didn't immediately find one.

I have remnants of 2 different brands from 2 different car recharges. Jeep vs Civic = dragon fruit vs cherries. No comparison. But, both kits worked appropriately in either vehicle for years on one recharge.

Good luck!!

My 2003 jeep liberty's air conditioner blows hot


Probably, to be sure make sure the compressor is coming on. With the engine running turn on the ac and watch the rpms, they should drop for a second if the compressor is coming on. If so you just need to recharge, the refrigerant is R-134a, which you can get from your local parts store along with the kit needed to charge it. The kit will come with detailed instructions and is a pretty easy job.

Air conditioner blows hot air


check for a loose connection on the A/C compressor, just behind the pulley/clutch or it might need to be recharged, if the car is r134a ready then it will cost about 40 bucks to get a simple recharge kit from an auto parts store.

Air conditioner not blowing cold air


go to a parts store such as Advance Auto Parts or Auto Zone and buy the A/C recharging kit they have with the rubber line and connector that connects only on the side that you need to recharge your system. If you can put air in your tires you can out freon in your a/c system.

Air conditioner not blowing out cold air. Compresser doesn't seem to be kicking on.


Probably just needs to be recharged. If they are low on product, they won't kick in because the low pressure switch won't allow it. You can buy a re-charge kit at Walmart, or most parts stores and do it yourself. Once you have the kit, the next time all you need to buy is a can of R134.
