It sounds like there is a blocked TX valve and the ac is going into overpressure and switching of until the system equalizes out to switch on again
Have it tested at an accredited ac shop

2004 sebring air conditioner stops and starts


Low freon will cause the compressor to short cycle, when the compressor runs the pressure in the low line is pulled down and the low pressure switch turns it off. Not running the pressure builds up and turns it back on. In the old days there was no low pressure switch, with no freon to carry the oil the compressor was destroyed.

AC has a New AC Compressor, plenty of Freon -it works but, only Hot Air blows through the vents ??? Is this the vaccum hose or the Heater Control Valve?


Check the heater control valve. And verify if there's hot air w/o A/C (fresh air with heat setting to cold)

On my 96 yukon the air won't get cold its not


if it WAS working then gradually just seemed to not get cold it sounds like freon is low. with the compressor cycling on-off it has some freon in it. just add a small amount. i'll be honest its best to have someone with the recycler machine do this it will save you from adding too much and possibly damaging the compressor. most shops have a freon service special around 99 bucks?

My lincoln mark lt pickup won't blow cool air


My lincoln had the same issue, first it was the A/C compressor (original). I replaced it with another one (used) and worked for 1 month. Then back to hot air. "A/C experts" told me the compressor was out again. I took it to a Mexican auto shop, old building where the guy works alone and to my surprise...HE FOUND THE PROBLEM!! There was no freon leaks, the lines were freezing cold inside the motor, checked freon>>full. He then checked the filter. This filter is on the end of the line where it is crimped that allows the freon to flow thru. Im no mechanic so explaining what it is, forgive me. I can only show you...the line is silver ad in front of you by the radiator, and its the same tube that goes to where you plug it to add freon. There is a filter that was clogged up and prevented the freon from flowing. He removed all the freon, vacuumed out the system/line, and replaced the filter for less that $3.00. Added freon and his cost was $80.00. Thank God for honest people who work hard for a living. I buy the parts, he replaces and I continue to give him my business. Other expensive auto shops with fancy buildings/prices My Lincoln Mark LT now blows arctic cold air!!!

My air condition want' blow out cold air i try


If your car is more than a few years old, it probably has a leak or a worn compressor. You can add too much freon for the system. It needs to be vacuumed down to a negative pressure before adding freon, and then checked for compressor function and leaks. You may need to take it in to a reputable shop.

Is the compressor engaging? If not he needs to find if a sensor issue if its fully charged or a low pressure or refrigerant condition. You can have pressure without refrigerant.

I think you may have a clogged orifice tube (possible compressor failure starting) this can be checked with a system pressure test.
When an expansion valve or block fails, always replace the drier. Also flush the condenser and liquid lines.
