Hooking up gauges would help knowing if the refrigerant is low but also would show if there is any problems with the sub-heating, super-cooling also if the compressor is starting to malfunction.

Sounds like she is low on freon, Get a reusable can from a parts store and shoot a little bit in and re-check the operation.

1992 honda accord radio and ac stopped working


Make sure your fan is working properly. When you turn on the heater you are forcing the fan to cool the radiator. It may not be turning on automatically when it is supposed to. Let us know if this helps..

How can I tell if the engine cooling fan is functioning properly?


The cooling fan is made to come on when the engine reaches a certain temperature. To give a simple and general test - turn the AC on high - it your AC and fan are both working correctly the fan should come on almost immediately. If not within very few minutes like 5 or 8.
Also at operating temperature the fan will run as well. In the early morning before you start the car open the hood - fill the radiator while the engine is still cold. start the engine and wait about 10 minutes or so. The fan should come on before the engine over heats. This may take up to 20 minutes and the fan is designed to run after the car is shut off IF - the temperature is hot enough.

1990 Geo Metro. Driving down the road with the a/c on the car loses power and starts slowing down. Also hear a sound, like compressed air being released the wife says under the car behind the front seats,...


It sounds like the ac compressor is building up to much head pressure.Check the cooling fans to see if they come on when the ac is turned on.The cooling fan should come on when the ac is turned on.This keeps the head pressure down so the freon keeps cool enough to cool the vehicle.Check the cooling fan,or fans to see if they are working when the ac is on,let me know if I can help you any more.

A/C not working properly


There is what is called a low pressure switch in the system that will not allow the system to run unless there is a complete charge in the system, what is happening is that the system is "Short cycling" due to low pressure, you can purchase a re charge kit at the local Autozone or Pepboys and that will fix the problem.

Air conditioning works when car first starts up (Volvo s40) then stops cooling after a while (usually when I am stopped in traffic) -- then if I turn it off and back on after a few minutes it works again....


It sounds like your cooling fans are not working.Need to check the cooling fan fuses,and the cooling fan relays.There is also a high side switch mounted somewhere on the high side of the ac system that cuts the fans on,or kicks them up on high speed when the ac system gets to high on the high side of the system.This switch may also cut the compressor off.I would check the fuses and relays for these fans first,this is more likely the problem.Is the car running normal temperature? If not the fans may not be running at all.Have them checked.The fan or fans may be bad them selfs.If I can be any more help,let me know.>>roniecon@gmail.com

AC stops working when cabin temp reaches 109-110


indicates gas pressure and condenser cooling problems
check the condenser fan is working properly and have the gas pressures checked by gauges
check that the evaporator fins are clean and not blocked as ice build up will cause the same indications

Air conditioner only works while moving. The AC stops cooling when stopped and idleing. Anyone know what causes this?


Your freon level is low, and not circulating on slow compressor speeds. Stop by any shop that has a sign stating they work on a/c and they can recharge it for you in a few minutes. Here where I live they charge about $20.00 labor plus a charge for the freon they put in, they sell it by the pound.

The ac in my 95 Jetta just works while the car is cool, then it stop


In addition to what emission wiz says, observe the speed of the fan when you turn on the a/c. some fans, when the are cold they run faster, then they get hot and slow down a lot. Also check that the small belt that drives the second propeller is ok. And for last, check that the front of the radiator is clear of any garbage, like a plastic bag that might have been cought in front of the condenser with the wind. If all this is working properly, there is nothing else that could be happening machanically to this a/c to stop it from cooling. look at the center of the pully of the compresor, make sure the entire thig is spining when clutch engages.
