Ac system does not get cold

Some days the ac will blow cold and some days it blows hot. The fans are working and it blows air even on days that it will not cool.

    Wow, a real site with real help. I will give more detail. At first the ac would only blow cold on some days so I had it looked at . The shop eveacuated the system and recharged it but the air only stayed cold for 30 min. Since then it has never been cold again. When I turn it on the smaller line that runs between the condenser and the firewall gets very cold but the car still blows warm air. The line coming out of the other side of the condenser, running to the radiator, doesn't really get much colder at all... and niether line gets cold if you feel them right where they come out of the firewall or cab at the back of the engine. The compressor is engaging and the electric fans are working. Thanks for any help.

    Wow, ddn't know if this site was for real, here are the details. When it started the ac would only get cold on some days and was weird because it seemed to get cold when I would get stuck in traffic on very hot days and would actually not be as cold when I started moving at hwy speeds.
    Anyway, I took it to a shop, they evacuated it and recharged it and it got cold for 30 min and has never been cold again.
    When I turn it on the smaller line that runs between the cab and the condenser gets very cold, the larger line running from the condenser to the radiator does not and neither line feels cold at the firewall behind the engine where they run into the cab. The campressor is kicking on fine and the electric fans are working and it was just charged about a week ago. Anyway, maybe this will help narrow down the problem.
    Thanks you for any help.

I guess that the ac has a low freon and you need to place freon. fan can give help a little but but its the ac that function the most You need to go to car mechanic shop where they have ac freon charge. good day .

Air cinditioning wont stay on, it switches to heat and wont shut off


What do you mean when you say it wont shut off? is it blowing hot air or do you just feel a lite flow of hot air even if you have the settings to cold?

If this is the problem that you always feel hot air at low flow and the ac goes to hot air then i would say one of two things, first if you have the selector to cold and you feel hot air then there may be a problem with the blend door, this door move to allow hot or cold air, the door may be broken or just a bad motor that controls it. keep in mind if the ac system shuts down for any reason the air then will be warm, it will be about the same temp as outside and maybe a little hotter.

this problem almost sounds like the ac compressor shuts off and then you are getting the outside air which is hot, there are many reasons for the compressor to shut off, it could be the compressor clutch heating up and disengaging , this would be due to a bad compressor clutch.

another reason is the fans are not working, the best thing to do is when the system starts to blow warm check and see if the compressor is running, start engine and look at the front of compressor, with ac off the front of it will not move, and then with ac on the front will spin, check it out and let me know, if it blows warm air and ac is not working then it may be compressor problem but if you are getting warm air and the compressor is spinning then it may be a door problem.

This is hard to check with out testing the system, so i listed a few things to check and let me know the out come. also the ac blows cold for how long before it gets hot air blowing out of the vents, good day.
