Blowing hot and cold

I have a 2004 Ford Explorer the A/C blows hot when idle and cold when driving but not as cold as it use to and yesterday when i turned off the car it made a weird squeeling noise like when you let the air out of a balloon slowly.

The system may be low on R134a and needs to be recharged, don't buy the recharger kit from Wal-mart. Have it done professionally buy having the system vacuumed out to remove any moisture in the system which will give you poor a/c performance and recharged to the optimum amount of R143a in the system to give you 100% a/c performance. Good luck and hope this helps, it may cast a bit more but there is also warranty to the job performed.

The squeaking could be it just regulating the pressure badly but all cars regulate their pressure for the a/c when you turn the car off.
But anyway, you need a condenser fan for the ac for when you idle.

My 2004 ford F 350 is not blowing hot air when running at an idle. Its starts too get warm after I start driving. What could be wrong?


Check your coolant level. May be low. Possible restriction in heater core or radiator. Possible air pocket trapped inside. I believe there is a heater core bypass valve that is actuated electronicly. It may be stuck, causing a restriction. It will be located on one of the coolant hoses coming from the firewall.
