Question about 2005 Ford Freestyle

2 Answers

Same problem I have the same issue. The ac will get cool but not COLD. My repair man said as long and I was going on long trips it would get cold. If I were in town driving from red light to red light it won't. He said the compressor won't "hold a charge"? It will cost around $1,000 to fix it.

Everyone... I have ordered a regulator for my Freestyle compressor. Its small and goes in the back of the compressor behind a plate. I've read Freestyle forums and apparently this is what goes bad in the compressor making normal mechanics think the whole compressor needs to be replaced. It is known as a scroll compressor and has to have this regulator working correct to operate. I have the same issue as everyone else, no cool air at idle, moderately cool at highway speeds. My regulator is on the way and I'll be installing it within the next couple days. Hope this fixes the issue.

I have a 98 Buick Lesabre Limited. It blows Cool air, but not Cold.And also, I can't seem to make it blow out of the Center Dash Vents.


Cornelius, vent problem could be a pinched or loose vacuum line on controller,faulty AC vacuum motor, faulty AC programmer,etc. needs to be checked out by a good Tech, diagnosed and estimate on repair.
As far as vehicle only blowing cool air, issue could be blend door issue, plugged AC condenser core dirt/debris, low AC refrigerant, plugged AC lines internal, failing compressor, etc., again should be checked out, diagnosed and estimate for repair by a good Tech.
Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

'97 Jeep Grand Cherokee AC "Works and Stops"


Make sure your fan clutch is working. No fan, no cooling of the condenser, no heat dissipation, no cold air. Start the truck and make sure you feel air movement, a lot.

What is the problem now? Please can you help?


If you turn on your AC on one day and nothing happens, you may be dealing with a major component failure. Your vehicle's AC system consists of a compressor, condenser, evaporator, expansion valve, a series of tubes and several fans/blowers. If either one of these components fails to do their job, it may result an entire system failure. For example, if the evaporator blower motor burns out, you will get little to no airflow through the vents.
Most modern vehicles also have safety mechanisms that may prevent a component from engaging if the pressure is low in the system due to a refrigerant leak. Refrigerant can leak for many reasons, including undone welds, loose connections, corrosion, physical damage from road debris, etc. Look for oily stains underneath your car, as they may indicate a leak. If you suspect a refrigerant leak, take your car to General Automotive. We will test the pressure and use special dyes to pinpoint the leak.
Warm Air is Coming Out Instead of Cold As you get in your car and turn on your AC, you probably expect it to be blowing hot air for the first minute or two until the system cycles through enough to cool it. But what if the air never gets cold ? Or maybe it it gets cooler, but not cold enough ? No, your car didn't get confused and turned on heat by accident. There is likely a problem with your condenser.
A condenser's job in a vehicle is to cool the warm refrigerant that was used to make the air cold in the evaporator. A condenser has coils and a fan to push the air through the coils and thus cool the refrigerant. If the condenser coils get dirty or clogged, or if the fan fails, the refrigerant won't be cooled completely, so the air will come out warm. It's best to take your vehicle to an experienced AC Repair professional to troubleshoot this problem if you don't know your way around under the hood.
Cold Air Blows Intermittently So you went for a road trip or a long drive, and after 30 minutes of driving realized that your AC suddenly stopped working or switched to blowing warm air. The cold air returns shortly, and the cycle repeats itself for as long as you are driving. What's wrong with your car?
Intermittent cooling is often caused by the components of your vehicle's AC system freezing up. Typically an iced over evaporator is the culprit. An evaporator covered in ice can't cool the air, so you would have to wait until the ice melts, which is why the cold air eventually returns. There may be numerous issues causing the icing-from a dirty cabin air filter to a blocked evaporator drain or an overcharged system. Look for puddles of water under your car-this could be a sign of a freezing problem.

Air conditioning not working 100%


You may want to have the evaporator (the AC part under the dashboard on the passenger side) cleaned. It needs to be taken out and cleaned. Normally this would solve the issue. Have the freon checked if there is a decrease. You may have it filled up and have the system checked for leaks.

AC is cold, then hot..


you need the tempature blend door motor. My 01 silverado had this issue about 1 1/2 years before i was tired of messing with it they are not hard to replace. The cover (if it is still on) for passenger side floor ducts needs to be removed and the motor is near the right side of "hump" (trans tunnel) mounted horisontial with the armature pointing upwards.
