AC works for about 300 miles then stops and blows hot air. New AC compressor and freon charge. After sitting for a while it will again blow cold.


I think you have a similar problem to mine. At highway speeds is when it happens. And it is not blazing hot? Right?
Your evaporator is freezing up - as this happens the ice surrounding it prevents the flow of air over the evaporator coils and the result is warm air coming out of the registers. If I turn off the AC for about ten minutes and let unit melt the cold air comes back. This does not occur in stop and go driving.
I combat it by either running the fan at a higher than normal setting to increase air flow over the evaporator and then turning off when it gets too cold, OR using the air control to allow warmer outside air to enter into unit at highway speeds to prevent freezing up.
Newer cars have more sophisticated sensors and controls to prevent this but some older vehicles are subject to this anomaly.
Since it works fine under normal conditions I have not messed around with the freon level in system. If you release a tad of refrigerant the low pressure switch will shut off the compressor sooner and help minimize ice buildup. Good luck.

Deicing Your Windows


Summary: During the winter months, or even a freak spring storm, it isn't uncommon to find the windows of your car covered in ice. Deicing your windows can be a bitterly cold experience, so why not learn the best possible ways for both preventing ice from forming on your windows and removing it in a hurry when you need to. Here's how. I really don't like going outside every morning to deice my windows. If you live in cooler (or even colder) climates, then chances are pretty good that you know what I'm referring to.

Over the years I have tried many different methods for deicing windows. I discovered that some work (though at a risk) while others seem to work just fine at preventing ice from forming (what better way of deicing your windows-provided you remember to do it, and others work-but require you to get really cold. Here are some methods, and a brief description of what happened to me when I used them.
  • Defroster. Probably the most common method available. Unfortunately, this method also comes with risks. While a properly working defroster can quickly (no more than 20 minutes usually) remove icy build up, it can also worsen any preexisting cracks in your windshields if turned on too high. There is another drawback to this method, and that is its cost. You can't really run the defroster without turning on the engine, and that takes gasoline.
  • Scraper. The traditional method for removing ice from windshields, a scraper should be in every vehicle that is in a cold climate. In fact, many car rental companies include them in their cars when you rent a vehicle from them during the winter. On average, this method can take about as much time as the defroster method, and while you are not as likely to crack your windshield, you will most likely get cold.
  • Vinegar. One of the best ways for deicing your windshield and windows is to prevent the ice from forming at all. However, not everyone has a garage that they can store their car in. In those situations, it is best to use a 50/50 solution of vinegar and water. Use half vinegar (any kind, though I prefer white since it does not smell as much) and half water in a spray bottle and spray it on your windows at night. This helps prevent ice from forming. The only drawback is that you have to remember to use it at night, otherwise it doesn't do you very much good. Although you can still remove ice by spraying some on your windows in the morning, you'll just need a whole lot more.
  • Rubbing Alcohol. For those who really need to move, try putting about 5 tablespoons of rubbing alcohol into your windshield washer reservoir. This turns the regular windshield washer fluid into a deicing agent at a fraction of the cost, and works wonderfully. Simply spray and use your windshield wipers as normal.
  • Blanket. This is perhaps the easiest way to prevent ice build up on your windshield. Just place a blanket over your windshield at night, and remove it before driving anywhere.

First thing in morning start engine but over revs at idle speed. once driving engine warms up then seems ok. finish work at night same thing happens again. does it mean its sucking air in somewhere or...


Hello Mark,
You should be looking at the idle air intake control motor, as that will often become clogged up with sludge or grease /dirt combination that will prevent it from working properly. When it doesn't work right the car will either stall a lot or will rev very high when cold (because the computer will try to make up the difference and prevent the engine from stalling. You can clean it using carburetor cleaner sprayed on it's shaft. If it still won't work correctly the motor should be replaced.
Please use the following link to view to all the possible placements of this motor and how best to clean it;

If the altenator shows good, what would cause a new battery to go dead over night?


Hello,
An open circuit, ( an electrical short ), could cause it.

A bad connection at the battery terminals could cause it, not only can a bad connection prevent the vehicle from starting, it also prevents the alternator from putting a charge back in to the battery.

Often the battery cable clamps can crack on the bottom side and prevent the clamps from being tight enough for a good connection.

Also, very common in cold weather, even with a brand new battery, the new battery may not have the minimum cold cranking amps, ( MCCA ), to start an engine in the cold weather. You may want to make sure, if you already haven't, that your battery meets the manufacturer's MCCA requirement.

I hope this helps you.

Rear a/c blower works but it does not get cold


There is a second condensor in that van for the rear A/C. have your refridgerant (r-12) level checked. may need to have the system evacuated and refilled. if an air pocket has lodged in there, that would prevent the refridgerant from circulating through the condensor. could also be an indication of a leak in the system.

Heater fan works in warm weather not in cold


Not very good with American cars, but a lucky guess... the fan works only after the cooling liquid has reached some temperature. So smth is preventing the engine to reach this optimal temperature in cold days - low level of liquid, water pump malfunction, thermostat not opening (if you have such mechanical thermostat at all), or just a sensor fault.
