Have the system evacuated and see if it holds negative pressure for at least 2 hours. If not, you need to have leak detector put in and the leak fixed before you can use the AC.

May have an issue with your evaporator. Its not holding charge therefore its not keeping the refrigerant cold enough or at all. Have a repairman check your ac system.

Your A/c System is a sub system of your vehicle. Your vehicle's A/c could or could not be holding a charge. Depending if you have taken your vehicle to a certified repair center, then you shouldnt of had any problems. If you did it yourself and recharged it you could have shot a liquid in to the system. You can not compress a liquid. Your compressor could be "scrap metal" for the lack of better words. You can not fix a compressor and it will need to be replaced. If you did do it your self, then you could have not refilled it with oil correctly or overfilled with oil and the compressor got trashed. Now, if you overcharged your system, then your evaporator core could get cold tooo fast and freeze the condensed humidity around the evaporator.No cooling effect with a brick in the way of the incoming air. Another thing could be your Condensor fans are not working, but then your vehicle would over heat.

Had a transmission line leak, fixed it with j.b.weld, now the stick shows over full but when i put it into gear, i have to rev it upto get it going.


sounds like the fluid is too hot still, if the fluid is too hot, it looses some of its viscosity making it not work as well try draining it and using new fluid, or if it goes to a transmission cooler (usually located near the cars radiator) then check or upgrade the transmission intercooler.

My 03 Nissan Altima's ac is blowing hot. I recharged it and 2 months later it blows hot again.


Did you ever think, that it was leaking refrigerant in the first place, and polluting the atmosphere.
If you need to recharge it,you must by federal law,recover the existing freon,repair the leaks,pull a vacuum,test that the system holds,then recharge.
You need to get this done professionally, by a shop equipped and trained to work on A/C

1999 Chevy Cavalier A/C blows hot air


More likely the recharge blew a o-ring and you have a leak. When your Cavalier was blowing hot air and a recharge fixed it that means it was low on freon which lets o-rings dry out, go back to the shop and have them leak test it. They use a pressurized dye to find the problem. If it's blowing it's not the cooling fan relay, they may have meant compressor relay but I'd have a leak test done first it's not expensive and easier that chasing unknown possibilities.
