Any good specialty ac shop can make the hose you need from parts, find an ac service shop in the phone book, also there is a site that has the OEM AC parts. go to the link

The compressor in my 2006 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 4x4 turns on and off while parked. It blows very cold air while driving, but blows hot and cold air while parked. To hot to sit in the truck while...


the ac system needs air through the condenser ( radiator bit in front of the radiator) to operate correctly. IT it has no air then the compressed gas is to hot and will not turn to liquid and so the high pressure switch turns of the ac compressor. No problem when you are moving as road speed provides the air flow. Get an electric fan and have it installed before the condenser and connect it to the ac compressor circuit so that it is running all the time you have the ac compressor running. not the local mechanic.When dealing with ac systems the best people to take it to is an accredited ac specialist shop

AC heats normay but when put on cold no air comes out and doesnt work.... no abnormal noises what can it be ???? pls help


AC is Air conditioning and uses the condenser and is not typically used to heat your car.

It sounds like you need a recharge of your refrigerant, and perhaps a new condenser or compressor.

There is water the fills the floor of the passenger side of the car when the air conditioner is running


The AC condensation drain is clogged, when the AC is on water is condensed on the cold AC evaporator core (this part is what cools the incomming air), this water drains out the bottom of the heater/AC air duct, the drain is at the bottom of the firewall under the hood on the passenger side, run a coat hangar up into the drain to clear it.

Air conditioning not too cold ??


Hello,
google_protectAndRun("ads_core.google_render_ad", google_handleError, google_render_ad); google_protectAndRun("ads_core.google_render_ad", google_handleError, google_render_ad);
Let me explain in layman's terms how the air conditioning (AC) system works and what could be happening to your car.

Like your body, the air conditioning compressor is the heart of the AC system, and Freon is the blood. The compressor pumps Freon throughout the AC system, either the older type R12 which costs as much as gold it seems these days, or the new environmentally-friendly R134A Freon. This Freon is a gas and liquid combination that is compressed and circulated throughout the air conditioning system. The compressed Freon is pushed through the system under pressure and is passed through different sized metal and rubber hoses and a special valve called an expansion valve that cause the gas to expand and contract.

This expansion and contraction makes the Freon gas very cold. This cold gas makes its way via metal lines into the dash area of your vehicle to the evaporator core. This evaporator core is like a small radiator, except it has cold Freon circulating inside and not hot antifreeze. A small fan (the AC blower fan which you control from the control panel on the dash) sits in front of the evaporator core and blows air across this cold evaporator and then through the vents inside your vehicle.

The other objective of the air conditioning system is to remove the heat from inside the cab of the vehicle. This heat is removed by the Freon with the help of the AC condenser located at the front of the car (usually in front of the radiator). The Freon coming back from the evaporator carries the heat from the cab to the condenser via rubber and metal hoses. Just like your radiator, the condenser is lightweight aluminum with many internal winding coils.
The Freon travels through these coils, and in between these coils are small slits or fins that the Freon is forced through. The condenser will have an electric cooling fan mounted in front or behind it to push or pull air through these fins to remove the heat from the Freon. Some vehicles still use the old fashioned fan blade driven by the engine to pull air across the radiator and the condenser.
Now I know that is just a tidbit of information on how the air conditioning system works, and it is very general, but I wanted you to know what to look for to give you insight as to what might be happening with your vehicle.
A few causes of low cooling efficiency or no cooling at all at idle are:

Lack of air flow across the condenser. Make sure the electric cooling fan motor near the condenser is coming on, or in models that are equipped with a fan blade make sure this fan is turning and is turning very fast.

Low Freon levels. Freon level and pressure should be checked by your certified air conditioning mechanic.

Overheating. If the engine is running hot or overheating, it can have a noticeable negative affect on the air conditioning system. Some cars have two electric cooling fans, one for the air conditioning condenser and the other for the radiator. Make sure they are both working properly. Usually at idle on a hot day with the AC on both fans will be on.

When the vehicle is traveling at freeway speeds, the compressor is pumping the Freon throughout the system much faster and harder than at idle. There is a dramatic increase in air flow across the condenser due to 55 mph winds, and the engine is usually operating at a cooler, more efficient temperature as well, thus allowing the air conditioning system to operate efficiently.
Note: An air conditioning system that is somewhat low on Freon can still feel comfortable at freeway speeds due to the added air flow across the condenser which can overcome the ill effects of slightly low Freon. Periodic air conditioning performance checks by your mechanic are the best way to keep the system in great shape.

Hope this helps.

Goodluck

My ac in my dodge truck only works when I am driving, but when I come to a stop it will stop blowing?


Stop blowing cool or stop blowing anr air through the vents??? If it stops blowing cool air, check if the condenser fan is running (it should be)( on drivers side under hood, looks like a small radiator) if not take a water hose and deluge the condenser with water, if it then cools, you will need a new condenser fan assembly.

Find the drain under the car for the ac condensation,and clean it out with air pressure.It will be directly below where the ac lines go into the car.

Condensate accumulates on the passenger side floor board when running the AC. The AC runs cold, and when we park the TC, there is no condensate pool on the ground like you would expect to see from other...


The drain for the evaporator is stopped up,use compressed air,like a air tank and a blow gun.The drain is directly below where the ac lines go into the firewall.If this was at all helpful,please rate,thank you.

A/C Cold while driving, gets warms at stop light?


It causes the discharge pressure to rise very rapidly because it's not being cooled to condense the hot freon when it flows through the coil. By the time the hot freon comes back around to the oraface, it's already in it's gas form and there is no evaporation process or expansion. In essence it causes the system to run at it's least efficiency. Hope this answers your question, good luck!
