Air conditioner will not blow out cold air and we just put in coolant, what could be the problem? it is a 1996 grand am v6


you really need to service an air conditioner with all the professional tools what are the pressures on the low side and the high side ? what coolant did you put in ? and how much ? r134a will only work if its done right too much and it will blow warm too little and the same thing you need the right amount did you change the receiver drier ? its a moisture filter it only works for about 5 years or once it gets moisture in it then its no good and needs to be changed also most gm's use an orifice tube filter in the high side line it too needs to be checked and cleaned or replaced . if the gauge needles are jumping around the compressor is bad . if the pressure is high on the low or high side over specs = no cold air . hope this helps

Low side on ranger for the port on the ac


hmm ..if you are looking for the low side air conditioner port .. then locate the condenser (thats in front of and looks like the radiator) .. you will notice two tubes going to that ..one is large the other small .. the small tube is the high pressure side .. the large tube is the low pressure side ... follow the large tube back until you find a cap that covers the low pressure port .. thats where you would fill with new refregerant (r134a) .. if you buy r134a, you can also get a filler hose and gage.. that hose will only hook up to the low pressure port ..it wont fit the high pressure port ...

F250 a/c not working at 60 mph. works fine at low speeds.


The belt could be loose.
The fan clutch could not be keeping up at high speeds to keep the system cool
I would have the cooling fan checked.

Air condition


Check the cooling system, particularly the radiator to make sure it is not partially plugged. Additionally, check the radiator fan for proper operation. If the engine temperature is running way above normal, some of the heat is transferred to the air-conditioning condenser, which causes the air-conditioner to lose efficiency. As for your question about a "limiter" switch, there is a high-pressure switch in the air-conditioning system that cuts the compressor out when the pressure gets too high.
