Most likely the system is low, but not low enough to shut off yet. Have it checked for leaks by a competent technician - probably needs an evaporator.

Air conditioner blows hot air. will not accept coolant


Sounds like a bad compressor. If you have manifold gauges and the necessary tools (like a vacuum pump, Refridgerant, etc.) you can draw down the system and re-charge. But first I would take a high and low side reading to see if all is well with that compressor.

My air conditioner compressor is not kicking on. I charged it, but I heard a hissing sound. Sounds like I have a leak.


you need to determine the location of the leak and then charge. There is a low coolant sensor that will tell the clutch no to kick in so it does not burn it up.

I have a 1998 Lumina and the air conditioner doesn't blow cool or cold air. It has refridgerant in it. The air compressor kicks on and off, what else could the problem be?


Is the refrigerant full, if not the air will not be cold and sometimes when real low it won't blow cool air at all. Be sure to check the level with a gauge and this will give you a more of an idea.

Air conditioner isn't blowing cold air


Could be a number of things...electrical connections causing the compressor not to run. Turn on AC and turn your thermostat all the way to cool...now visually check to see if compressor is engaged and not just free wheeling. Most likely you lost your refridgerant due to leak in the system...would need to find leak and repair then have your system re-charged with refridgerant. Best case scenario...your system just needs a charge of refridgerant due to not having enough.

My air went out...


My 2001 limited did the same thing. I bought a refridgerant refill kit from Walmart and plugged it in, but it showed that the level of refridgerant was fine. Turns out the AC belt had come off. I found it laying in the skid plate. My auto shop charged me $25 for a new belt and putting it on.

Chevy 2001 2500hd, sounds like a air leak when running the air conditioner. someone told me it was a belt on the air conditioner that was causing the air leak sound.


FREON ENTERING THE EVAPORATOR WILL SOUND LIKE AN AIR LEAK. THE ORIFICE CAN SOUND LIKE ITS HISSING.

HAVE A SERVICE CENTER CHECK THE ORIFICE TUBE, MAY NOT BE INSTALLED PROPERLY.

Air conditioner blows hot air, checked coolant and it is full


There are a few different possibilities for a vehicle doing this. A low refridgerant level can, or a temp control on the dash is not operating properly.

98 Chev pickup air cond problem


1. Have the refridgerant fluid level checked. (Could be low)

2. Have you tried putting it on recirculate? Could be a venting issue.

Other than that it's out of my league.
