These hoses are swedged onto the tubes and need to be replaced as a assembly. This is not something you should undertake yourself. There are tools needed (deep vacuum pump and hose manifold set) to do the repair. AutoZone should be able to order the hose,though.

My a/c blows hot air


Most likely if it is blowing hot air, and everything including compressor seems to be working, it needs a charge of freon. You can pick up a bottle of freon at Auto Zone, they sell bottle of freon and even has a guage on it. If you drive the car in there and pop the hood, they will show you where you hook it up. It even tells you step by step on the can how to do it. But just to give you a recap of how you do it: You first have Auto Zone tell you the connection on your car where to tap the hose off the can to. You start engine, turn on the AC at full speed, and shake can real good, hook hose up to the connection that Auto Zone showed you, and turn can ( light shake) while its hooked up from a 12 noon position to a 3 O'clock position back and forth while depressing can every 10 seconds. Pretty easy to charge your own AC.

Now realize that the reason your car is just blowing warm air, is most likely it is low on freon, but don't forget it is very possible it is low or out, is because of a leak. DO NOT get suckered by these auto shops saying, you have a leak and we have to do this and that and all that. Cause they will charge you a lot of money to check it. First step is to try and charge system first and see how it works. The freon can at Auto Zone runs around 30 bucks, worth the cost to see if that solves it. Otherwise a shop could cost you a few hundred for the same results of just charging like you did for 30 bucks. If this does not work, then you can have them put system under pressure to see if a major leak in line somewhere. Thanks Mike

Adding freon to the air conditioning where does the freon go?


look for the thick pipes vs. the thin pipes and a quick connector that goes on to the hose that fills the r134a via a can of freon.

Or, do you mean, where is the freon leaking out of? The freon leaks out of o-rings, seals, and possibly the compressor.

I had a compressor changed in my 1990 Cadillac Deville because it was leaking there. This is a common problem on older cars.

Good luck.

My 2008 F250 w/ auto air conditing will only blow hot air after the truck is out in the sun for a short time when it is cool in the morning it works fine..


YOU NEED TO ADD MORE FREON TO THE UNIT. SOUNDS LIKE IT NEEDS TOPPING OFF. YOU CAN BUY R-134A FREON IN A PACKAGE WITH A HOSE AT A PARTS STORE. DON'T KNOW HOW TO CHARGE THE UNIT , NO PROBLEM. OPEN HOOD, START TRUCK,TURN A/C TO MAX WITH BOTH DOORS OPEN RUNNING AT
NORMAL SPEED, NO REVING, THEN FIND A BLACK METAL PIPE
RUNNING FROM A SILVER DEVICE CALLED AN ACCUMULATOR.
THE PIPE WILL HAVE A CONNECTOR, JUST UNSCREW THE CAP
AND PLACE FREON HOSE WITH THE CAN CONNECTED TO IT AND
SECURE THE END OVER THE PORT VALVE. OPEN FREON VALVE ON THE CAN AND PLACE UPRIGHT AND LET IT SIT. WHILE INSTALLING THE FREON, FEEL THE VENTS BY THE DOORS OR
DASH TO SEE IF THEY ARE GETTING COLDER. WHEN THE VENTS ARE COLD YOU CAN TURN THE VALVE OFF ON THE FREON CAN
AND DISCONNECT IT FROM THE FITTING AND PLACE THE CAP
BACK ON THE VALVE. THAT'S ALL THERE IS TO IT. YOU CAN ASK THE PARTS STORE CLERK WHICH PORT IS FOR CHARGING THE UNIT IF YOUR UNSURE. THEY ALSO SELL R-134A FREON WITH A
SEALANT MIXED IN WITH THE CAN JUST IN CASE YOUR UNIT MAY HAVE A LEAK IN THE SYSTEM. REMEMBER, **NO REVING** NO
MATTER WHAT ANYONE SAYS. THE SYSTEM WILL NOT CHARGE FASTER. IF YOU WANT FASTER CHARGING THEN KEEP THE CAN WARM. FREON WORKS WITH AMBIENT TEMPERATURE WHICH
MEANS WARM DAY OR CAN IS FASTER THAN A COLD DAY AND
A COLD CAN. FREON MOVES FASTER WHEN HEATED.

My air condition want' blow out cold air i try


If your car is more than a few years old, it probably has a leak or a worn compressor. You can add too much freon for the system. It needs to be vacuumed down to a negative pressure before adding freon, and then checked for compressor function and leaks. You may need to take it in to a reputable shop.

Air conditioning isn't coming out as cold as it should


you just might be low on freon...have it checked at your local repair shop or you can even add it yourself just look for the fill valve on the (big) low pressure line from the compressor

AC is not working


Sounds like the A/C system just needs to be recharged. When was the last time you had this done? Just take it in to your mechanic and he can do it for you and if that's not it for some reason, then he will be able to find the problem but most likely you need more freon added.
