    After the one day of working and the return of hot air, is the compressor still working or has it stopped working?

The engine drive belt operates the AC compressor. The OUTER pulley on the compressor , where the belt is, is always turning when the engine is running. When the AC is turned on, a CLUTCH on the compressor is engaged and connects the outer pulley to the compressor shaft. So, when the compressor is actually working, the outer pulley AND the inner ring just behind the outer pulley are both turning. When the AC is off (or not working correctly, as in your case), only the outer pulley turns.

It sounds like there is a major leak somewhere in the system. If you want to try and to find the leak yourself, there is a product in auto parts stores that is made for this. It is a canister, like the refrigerant used to charge the system, that will blow out a dye in the system, where the leak is. This can help you identify where the leak is ....If this info was helpful, please post... Thanks...

Why ac blowing hot air


start off with the cheap possibilities and make your way threw.
I'd start off with replacing Air Charge temperature sensor, make sure your AC Hose isnt leaking anywhere, if those dont solve it then replace ur AC clutch, last chance would be replacing AC compressor. sometimes the compressor will malfunction randomly. or the AC clutch might malfunction aswell. covering these steps somewhere along the line you will have working AC again! good luck

Air conditioning does not blow cold air in my 2004 nissan x terra


If your a/c compressor kicks on and your manifold gauges show proper hi/lo readings then I would inspect the blend door. The blend door is a motor that moves back and forth when u set the temp for hot or cold . In your case, it may be stuck in the same position. The blend door is located in the dash, usually behind the glove box or in that general area. I hope you are able to fix your problem. Scott

Compressor turns, holds a charge but does not blow cold air even when I turn on the outside air it blows warm air


OK, this is air-conditioning 1-0-1

You say that i holds a charge, and the compressore turns, but does the comprressor cycle on and off, as this is indicating that there is enough charge, and once there is low pressure detected, it turns the compressor on, and when it reaches a high pressure, the compressor cycles off.

Lastly, when engine running and AC on, if you feel the 2 pipes going in to the firewall, one should be hot, the other should be cold ???...is this happening ???

When the exterra is idle the ac blows hot air


Have the freon level checked. It might be a worn compressor that pumps insufficient freon at idle. Good luck!

Where is low pressure service port located on 2004 Nissan Xterra 3.3?


Near the compressor are two ports; one on a large tube leaving the compressor and one on a small tube. The one on the large tube is the low pressure side.

2001 cavalier air conditioner blowing hot air


Why do they want to replace the compressor?noisy?If you can put a charge on the ac then it's hot again after a day,then you have a leak.all the ac lines have o-rings where they are connected.without put dye in the system you wont know for sure.So I would try that first.
