If there is air in the system you will need to recover all of the refrigerant (freon) from the system this is done with a machine called a recovery unit.Then the system will need evacuated this is done with a vacuum pump putting the system in a vacuum will remove moisture and air from the system,the epa requires a minimum of 4" of vacuum for MVAC (motor vehicle air conditioning). If you are not familiar with this you need to take it to someone who has the proper equipment for this type of work. Air is one possible cause, other things that cause this are: a malfunctioning expansion valve, a dirty condensing coil (located in front of the radiator),a faulty clutch fan will not pull enough air across the condensing coil at an idle, if the system is low on freon,and if the low pressure switch is malfunctioning.I strongly suggest you take it to some one who has been trained or is experienced in trouble shooting ac systems.I hope this information is useful if you have any other questions don't hesitate to ask.

2006 tdi jetta a/c only works at high rpm


That it works at all is indicative of a low level of refrigerant in the system. You can buy kits at auto parts stores that will allow you to refill the system yourself. The proper solution is to have a professional insepct the AC system to find the leak.

AC blows hot air when I go over 60 miles per hour. Works fine otherwise.


Interesting question. The AC condensor is in front of the radiator, and the movement of the car (or the fan) cools the refrigerant.

This is not working normally. I'd suspect
a) the refrigerant level is low (ie a slow leak), fix is refilling it.
b) the compressor stops working at higher rpm. Various issues can cause this.

Have the system pressure checked at an AC shop. One QUICK and dirty way is to take off the AC hose HI pressure cap. Press the valve BRIEFLY. If you hear a sharp, loud noise of escaping pressure, the level is probably OK. If you hear a soft hissing sound, the pressure is low, and the refigerant has to be refilled.

Air conditioner blower stopped working on 2004


If the blower works but its just not blowing cold air, its possible to recharge the AC system yourself. Most auto parts stores carry AC recharge kits. Instructions to recharge the AC are belowl

RECHARGING AC SYSTEM

1.Turn the truck on and turn AC on HIGH
2.Locate the low side AC line (will have a valve and cap similar to the cap on a tire)
3.Insert the oil or R-134A can to the hose (Do not turn the screw to puncture the can yet)
4.Insert the other end of the refill hose to the low side valve
5.Puncture the R-134A can with the screw on the refill hose
6.You should feel the system suction the refrigerant out of the can
7.Check for frost on the AC lines and the air blowing inside the truck
8.If frost develops and the air is cold, you've successfully recharged the system and disconnect the refill hose. DO NOT ADD MORE REFRIGERANT...overcharging the system will damage your compressor and will be less effective


Best of luck and enjoy your vacation.

I need to retrofit and recharge my 1988 Dodge Ram Ac.


First, the old R-12 must be completely evacuated fromt the system. R-12 and R-134A do not mix and won't function together. Once you are sure there's no R-12 left in the system, you need to install an R-134A fill valve on the low side AC line. This is where your refill hose will connect to add R-134A. Once the valve is in place you're ready to fill the system. The compressor requires a minimum of 20psi to engage and should not be filled to more than 45psi.

The air conditioner blows hot air. Is there a way I can test for a leak in the system or does this require a technician? I am thinking it's not a compressor because it is blowing.


Apart from doing a low side pressure check, you can try to recharge the system yourself with a refill kit that's readily available at most auto parts stores. If you're concerned about a leak, also get a can of R-134A with the UV dye that will show any leaking components.

On my 1995 Dodge Ram When I turn the A/C On it dosent seem to kick in and get cold just warm air?


In most cases, the problem is the system is low on refrigerant. The AC compressor requires a minimum of 20psi of refrigerant to turn on. There are refill kits available at the auto parts stores. If doing this yourself, select a kit that includes compressor oil, and a refill hose.

Rear AC no air flow.


Sounds like you need to recharge the system its probably low on r-134a. AC only works if it has enough pressure in the system. Go to the auto parts store and pick up a refill kit. If you don't know how to do it ask the parts guy to help you.
