1996 chevy blazer a/c wont blow cold air

Just bought a 96 blazer from a friend. when i turned the a/c on it would blow warm air but no cold air. i checked under the hood and the wheel on the front of the a/c compresser would spin for a couple seconds and then stop and then start again a few seconds later and then stop after a couple seconds and it kept doing this. he said the a/c works it just needed to be charged so i bought a can of 134a. when i took the cap off the accumulator tank to charge it a piece of plastic got wedged against the tongue and drained everything out of the tank. i filled the tank with the can i bought. now when i turn on the a/c it still blows warm air but no cold air like before. however the wheel on the front of the compresser does not spin anymore. anyone know what the problem might be?

You need about two or three mor little cans of freon.If you dont have enough in the system the compressor clutch will not engage( turn ) of course you know this is the street version,not professional.but it will do.

Stop releasing harmful cfc's into the atmosphere and have your a/c serviced by a licensed technician. There is a leak in your system and your compressor will not run in the conditions you have described.

Fan blows no heat


With engine warmed up, feel of heater hoses under hood to see if both are warm (careful don't burn yourself). If they both are warm, flapper door which directs airflow through heater is not working, probably because the actuator is bad or you have a vacuum leak. Check line under hood which goes to vacuum reservoir for vacuum, and check one way valve(check valve). Replace any old soft or cracked vacuum lines.

If both heater hoses are hot, you could have a blend door problem under the dash. If the engine is not warming up, check the thermostat.

Honda Accord 2003 4dr LX - AC does not cool always. The compressor does not kick in every time. When it comes on, it is very cold But otherwise there is no click sound. I got it checked by the mechanic...


Most likely a restriction in the lines causing the compressor to shut down after a breif period of cold air. Check for bad orifice tube or thermal expantion valve.

I have a 96 chevy blazer with a 4.3 vortec rough


Do a compression test on all of your cylinders when it is cold. Backfiring is a sign of a worn valve seat allowing mixed fuel and air (lit by spark) to be forced back into the intake. You will probably see compression loss on one or more cylinders.

Also... there is a chance that the EGR valve is not totally seated when the engine is cold with just a small blow by. The EGR valve seats coke up over time with black gunk.

Why wont my 99 chevy blazer temperature warm up?


You may have vapour lock in your heater lines. Start engine, put heat lever on high, disconnect one of the lines on your heater core, the one on the flow out side, & see if you have any air coming out. Once antifreese comes out stick line back on & retighten clamp. Make sure your cooling system is topped off. Also your water pump may not be functionihg to it's maximum. Take rad cap off cold & view flow rate. If inadequate you may have to replace the water pump. Good luck!

96 Blazer A/C WILL NOT BLOW ANY AIR HOT OR COLD


BEFORE YOU DO ANY HARD WORK TURN ON YOUR A/C AND BLOWER AND TAP THE BACK OF THE BLOWER MOTOR WITH A SMALL HAMMER IN A COMPLETE CIRCLE. SOUNDS LIKE YOU JUST HAVE SOME STICKING BRUSHES IN THE BLOWER MOTOR.
