Question about 2003 Mitsubishi Lancer

2 Answers

Hot air comes from my ac

I took the car to an ac specialist and he said the pressure in the high line is ok but there is no pressure in the low line. The compressor is making a shelly noise and the technician says i will need to get one because of noise it is making. I am now wondering if a blocked expansion valve could cause the compressor to make this shelly noise.

thanks in advance

I had the same trouble; it turned out to be a broken cable that controls the air temp. Look under the dash by the clutch pedal. Hope this helps.

It could cause it but either way the system has to be evacuated and totally recharged. Any way you look at it, it isn't a cheap adventure and has to be pretty much done by a trained tech unless you have all the stuff to do it. Sorry for the bad news.

On my 2006 ac works good when engine is cool, in stop & go traffic it blows hot air & head pressure gets high in ac, car temp is ok what's wrong


How do you know head pressure is high? Do you have an auxiliary electric cooling fan that is not coming on in this situation? It should be in front of the AC condensing coil. There may be a switch tied to the system that is bad. This switch is sometimes activated by the pressure in the high-pressure line to the condenser coil. If there is not enough freon (134a) the pressure will not be high enough to activate the cooling fan switch. I recently added one can to my system and it made the fan run whereas it did not before adding the freon.

Front AC cold but Rear AC very hot


Not likely, but Is Hot water flowing to heater coil in back? How hot is "very hot" Is it a refrigerant line? If a refrigirant line, Very Hot means it is hot gas from the compressor that "should be going to the condenser coil usually in front of the radiator. It's almost impossible for that Hot refrigerant gas to go to the cooling coil in the back unless you had some repairs done and they weren't certified. My guess is the radiator hot water is not being controlled properly, due to bad valve or control system components.

Kia sedona compressor clutch does not turn?


check for fuse and relay problems in the ac circuit. disconnect the wire near the ac clutch and use a test light to see if there is power there. Remember that there are 3 units that will stop the clutch from working. Low pressure switch, high pressure switch and the thermostat. Best take it to an accredited ac specialist shop for a test of the system as you may have a leak and all the gas is gone.

Where do you put gas for air conditioner for s-type jaguar


Hi Barry, If you look carefully at the two AC pipes you will see two plastic valve covers (similar to valve caps on tyres, but larger). One is high pressure and the other low. When regassing the engine should be running ith the AC turned on. Regards John

AC Cooling problem


Well the blend door theory would work if the ac never got cold. But you say it starts out cold and then gets hot.
Its possible the system is freezing up due to lack of air flow thru the evaporator, or a blockage in the freon lines.
You would need to watch the high and low pressure gauge readings as the system gets warm.
You may need professional help for this.

what makes u say ur ac refrigerant has a blocked passage? check the low pressure line by touching it with ur hand while ac is running/ it has to be freezing cold/ if not cooling it means ur compressor is weak and or refrigerant is low/ high pressure line is normally hot/ check ac magnetic clutch operation must engage when ac switch is on and disengage when ac is turned off/ check ac condenser must be blocked and needs cleaning....

AC is blowing but no cool air, took it in and


without hooking up a manifold gauge set to check high and low side pressures it makes it much harder to diagnose. however air and or moisture in the system could cause this as well as a weak compressor. or a partially clogged thermostatic expansion valve. good luck and I hope this helps!!!

AC does not blow COLD air


not a home mechanic job thats for sure ,check youre pollen filter isnt choked up if thats ok then you need a specialist repairer because the venturi offrice is blocked which means that the high pressure gas isnt going through the small hole causing it to stay hot.must ge er indoors moaning
