Question about 2000 Pontiac Bonneville
Interesting that it blows cold on one side and not the other. The guy I had recharge it only put one can in. This is the fist recharge since i've had the car (its a 2000 i purchased in 2004), i think i'll get a hose myself and put one more can in.
What pressure is recommended? i could not find this anywhere (or perhaps did not search hard enough :))

My 2000 Bonneville would do that when the pressure in the ac system was low. I had a leak in my system and bought a recharge kit and charged it when it got low. The correct way is to fix the leak of course, but this worked for me for the last 8 months until I had it fixed this week.

Two things can be the problem,first,try adding ,a little freon,if it is low,it will only cool one side,then if this does not help,there is a door actuator motor that controls this,it could be not working,the dash has to come out to replace this actuator motor,if this was at all helpful,please rate,thank you.

That is correct, the air blend door actuator. "flapper valve" may need to be replaced or cleaned and free from binding up. Good luck and hope this helps. If there is an Auto Zone in your area, they can order the part you need and give you the step by step instructions to removing the old actuator and replacing it if it's damaged. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to help.

SOURCE: air conditioning
On a w body car with a single temp adjustment control (not a dual zone) your problem should be a low refrigerant charge. Due to the design of this evaporator, a low refrigerant charge will cause the furthest areas from the inlet and outlet hoses (the drivers side) to not remove the heat from the incoming air. This allows the air on the drivers side to be outside temp but refrigerated on the passenger side. In cars with Dual Zone controls you must not only verify the refrigerant charge level, but also check the mode doors which control the air flow and regulate the temp. To check the refrigerant level do not use pressure gauges alone. Verify a proper charge level by checking the temperature of the two aluminum lines going in to the firewall of the vehicle. With the A/C set to high the temperatures should be within 5 degrees of each other. If not, then there is a charge issue. I hope this helps
