Question about Cars & Trucks
Checked switch and it works ... looked for a vacume hose leak but cannot find it
Great question but no idea of what make or model you are talking about. I know you can probably see it but we cannot. More information would be helpful. A lot of the later cars use electric actuators instead of vacuum ones, check that out.

Reguardless of how old the car is should make no difference as too how cold the AC is blowing. I have a 1997 Honda Civic with 215,000 miles on it and it still runs great, so yours is just barely broken in :) Maybe you need some refrigerant (R-134) added to make it colder? As to the power issue of the car, all air conditioners take appoximately 5-10 horsepower away from a cars engine when turned on. Have you ever had your spark plugs changed? That is usually cheap $10 - $20 if you do it yourself or probably $50 - $75 if you take it to a mechanic, and it makes a big difference in power. ( Make sure they use NGK spark plugs, that is what Honda uses) Also, on your other post about the timing belt which YES you do have a timing belt and not a chain, I have always been told to change the timing belt AND WATER PUMP at every 90,000 miles. The water pump should be changed because if it locks up it will break the new belt they just put on and then the damage I talk about later will happen to the engine. That should cost you around $250 - $400 depending on where you take it? preferably a Honda dealer because it may cost a little more but they know their stuff. It is important to change it because if it breaks it will cause your valves in the engine to get bent and then you will basically need a new motor at that point. Lastly, if you want to find the year of your car then look inside the drivers side door frame, there will be a VIN number and a manufacture date. Well I am sure this is more than you ever wanted to know about your car but there you go:)

Testimonial: "found another definitation for a code 422. replaced rear o2,fixed"
first ... Make sure that you have vacuum to your control head. This is normally the black vacuum line. The vacuum than goes to the various vacuum motors on the Heater /AC case. These vacuum motors rarely fail. The normal fault is loss of engine vacuum ..cut line or not secure to engine. second.. a fault with the vacuum reserve reseviour. When the engine needs the vacuum this is your vacuum supply.
