If it isn't cold it mmore than likely has a leak. Find a shop that can detect the leak, UV dye is preferable way. repair the leak, recharge to specs and you should be fine. cost will vary from area to area depending on labor rates. good luck

Try having someone evac and recharge the system to get all the air out ,if its still not cold try to clean the condensor it looks like a radiator and is located in front of it make sure there is nothing blocking the air flow like dirt or grass, if that dont help replace the fan clutch,the more that air flows past that condensor the better the a/c cools

You may have a small leak at a hose or front seal of compressor. You may want to think about having freon level checked before adding freon. Most shops at this time of year have A/C service specials going on for under 75 bucks. If it is a small leak just tell them to add freon to get you by till next year if your short on cash. Hope this helps.

My ac is charged and works; it blows cool but how or what do I need to do to make it blow colder? It has already been retrofitted for r134a.


the only way to make it colder is to set the thermostat colder in the evaporator or clean the muck out of the evaporator fins
Test the temperature at the vent by placing the thermometer in the vent and it should be around 10 degrees c
The temperature is not taken in the car as there is too much thermal efficiency lost form the vehicle
Remember that while air condition feels to produce cold air ,what is making you feel cool is the fact that the air conditioner is removing the humidity from the air in the car
Take it to an ac accredited service centre for testing as the TX valve may be partially blocked

I have a 2004 Nissan Xterra. It is not cooling like it should. I changed the two filters behing the glove box. I checked the pressure and it is good. The compressor is coming on and sounds like the clutch...


When you say you checked the pressure did you connect gauges to the high and low sides to get both pressures, this sounds like it may be low. also what is the temp coming out of the vents. note on really hot days and humid the ac system doesnt cool as good unless the truck is moving down the road or highway and does take a while to cool down. at a stop or sitting or in traffic the ac temp will rise as the condensor needs to be cooled like the engine does, if its not cooling then the temp will not be cold, check the front of condensor for blockage, also make sure the fan is running with ac on. this fan should run when ac compressor is on,maybe clean condensor with water hose blowing from radiator outwardto front bumper, then make sure the hot/cold blend door is closing all the way,a quick test is to turn a/c on, turn temp control to hot and see if it gets hotter then back to cold and it should get colder. this sounds like the system may just be a little low. have an a/c tech check it, you may find its low or nothing is wrong. good day.

I recently had the heater core replaced on my 2000 TJ Sport. the ac system was recharged but does not blow cold. The ac lines under the hood are frosty cold and the condensation comes out the drain tube,...


I would return the vehicle to where the work was done. It sounds like something such as the blend door was not reinstalled properly, or something wasn't reconnected properly.

A/C air sometimes cold, sometimes not on VW Beetle 2001 Turbo


AC will not work with temps are cold even when it is turned on. The air is colder cause the temp is colder. The AC cycles in hot weather because the AC charge is low and needs recharging. You will know this if you open the hood run the AC and you will hear the clicking sound of the AC compressor magnetic clutch. You can recharge it easily buy buying a compatible can of refrigerant. I suggest buying the kit with the gage so you don't overcharge the system which will cause freeze ups
