91 towncar a c blows cold sometimes


Let me start by saying the people who answer questions on this site are volunteers, not employees.
And this is the first time I have seen this question.
Now, here are some of the possible reasons for cold air sometimes.
The blend doors that control air flow and the heater are vac operated. You may have a vac leak or a blend door not working correctly.
If the problem happens depending on engine speed, the fan clutch may be faulty and not pulling enough air thru the radiator.
If the problem is because the compressor stops running, you would need to check for voltage at the compressor and the relay. You could also have a low or high pressure switch that is coming and going.

The AC stops blowing air for a while and then re-start working normaly.


Have you noticed that the AC quits blowing cold air when you are heavy on the throttle, or climbing a hill? Does it return to blowing cold air when you let back off the throttle and relieve the load from the engine?

If you answered YES to those questions, your AC is operating normally. AC compressors take quite a bit of power from the engine to operate. In vehicles with smaller engines, the AC compressor will disengage when there is a heavy demand for power placed on the engine, and you will not get cold air. When that demand is gone, it re-engages power to the AC compressor.

A/C BLOWS COLD BUT COMPRESSOR IS NOISY WHEN ACCELERATING


it sounds as if the Bearing is out on the A/c compressor you can just replace the bearing and save a lot of money but you need the right tools to do this to get your air gap set right on the clutch again i suggest takeing it to a shop you can trust for the repair

If compressor isn't kicking in, check the connector atop the a/c accumulator, beside the coolant recover tank, in the engine compartment. That connector is atop a black bottle, and the connector goes to the low pressure switch. These switches do fail, and you can jump a wire across the connector terminals to see if the compressor comes on (engine running). As this circuit provides part of the ground path from the compressor clutch, if the switch is open, the compressor will never turn on. If the switch is failed, it can be replaced without opening the a/c system. Just disconnect the connector, unscrew the switch, replace it, and reconnect the connector.
