Is the system full?

If you stop and bring RPM up does the system get cold?
Did you make sure the orifice tube was installed INTO the condenser line or new lines/hoses in the SAME location of the old one.
Did you use the old one?
Did you match it to a new one?

My ac is acting funky. my ac will blow cold air as im moving. once i stop and idle for longer than 3 or 4 minutes, something will kick on and then it will start to blow hot air. as this happens, my car...


Start by checking to make sure that the a/c condensor and radiator is not full off debris. If the condensor and radiator were full of debris it will limit the air flow from the engine cooling fan which in tern will cause a high discharge pressure on the discharge on the a/c causing poor or no cooling at idle and could also cause vehicle to overheat. Check and make sure that the cooling fan as well as the condensor fan are coming on together when the a/c is turned on if equipped with 2 fans.

I have a 2002 dodge ram 1500 4.7L engine. Air conditioning only blows cold air when vehicle is moving; warm air when idling... please help. Thanks!


Start by checking the condensor fan to make sure it is running while you have the ac on. If it is not blowing check the condensor fan motor fuse that is located in the totally integrated power module. If the fuse is bad it is most likely that the condensor fan motor is bad and is drawing too much amperage and will need to be replaced. Now I am assuming it has an electric condensor fan motor. Make sure that the condensor is free of debris, a dirty condensor will cause high discharge pressures that will cause poor or insufficient cooling at idle.

Air condition does not blow cold air unless driving. Hot air blows from vents when in idle

The AC only blows cold only whenthe rpm's are at 900.


you dont,the aircon needs power to run so the computer is telling the engine to tick over at a no vibration speed,if it ticked over at the lower (400)revs,the whole car would shake.....

Ac does not blow cold at idle... ac condenser fan


that seems to be the problem. If the fan does not turn on when the a/c is turned on it could be a fuse, relay, control box, or just a bad fan. Try connecting the fan directly to see if it works. Does this car have 2 fans? normally all the small cars have 2 fans one for the engine cooling and one to assist the first when the a/c is turned on. Without the fan pulling air through the a/c condensor the had pressure goes up high enough to shut off the a/c compressor. It also causes some cars to run warmer than usual when stopped. Check the a/c condensor for blockage also which doesn't have anything to do with your fan not working.

Poor functioning A/C in 2004 GMC Sierra 1500


Have the engine fans and relays checked. If the engine fan does not come on when the a/c compresser kicks in then the air that comes out the vents will be warm.

No cool air when idling..


The refrigerant level may still be to low or the compressor is not working properly.
