I had this problem before. If you were hearing a rattling noise everytime you ran your air conditioner, and now it is not blowing cool air, that means your compressor is gone, you need another one.
I have a Dodge Stratus and when I would run my air i began to hear this rattling like balls were in there, but not real loud but enough to know that it was noticeable and that is what it was. I hope this helps

I think you may have a clogged orifice tube (possible compressor failure starting) this can be checked with a system pressure test.
When an expansion valve or block fails, always replace the drier. Also flush the condenser and liquid lines.

SOURCE: AC is not blowing cold air. How do I add freon?

What you will be looking for (in your engine compartment) looks almost like a large valve stem that you would see on a tire. It will probably have some kind of plastic cap on it.

It shouldn't be that difficult to find. You may want to search for an engine compartment diagram for your make/model/year vehicle.

SOURCE: My air conditioner won't blow cold air. It just blows air.

Hello I'm a M.B. tech. 1st you need to know why the freon is low. Hopefully it just needs to be serviced. There is a component located in the lf of the engine compartment called a receiver drier. It soaks up the moisture in the freon so the gases can work the way they are supposed to. On this unit there should be 2 switches(I believe they were combined into one switch in 98. 1 switch is a temp switch that operates your electric fans, the other is a compressor cutoff switch. Assuming the compressor is not coming on-take a fused wire and bridge the 2 contacts- If the compressor does not come on at all there is another problem(it is not low on freon. On the condenser there is a high side port(it is the bigger of the 2)By the brake master Cyl.(lf of the engine compartment thereshould be a smaller low side valve in line with the fuel cooler hose. Usually you can hook up a machine to the low port and **** freon in through that port. Assuming you do not have a refrigerant machine. It is very self explanatory on the bottle of r 134a refrigerant which can be purchased at your local auto supply store. I would start with 1 lbs. and add dye with the freon in case there is a big leak. If the system is overcharged it will not cool properly. I believe the system capacity is approx. 2 lbs. Add a few ounces after the first pound until a/c system is cooling properly and the electric fans are also coming on when the system gets to high. If you get a can with a good Gage set on it you should see the high side between 150 and 2000 psi(fan coming on at max. press.) also the low side should read about 35. It is about the temp of the evaporator which is i=located in the dash and the blower blows through this component out through the vents. Hopefully I have been helpful.

SOURCE: Air conditioner on 2002 Pontiac blowing hot air, although freon is not low...also makes a clicking noise.

Take it to a garage and have them evacuate the system and refill with refrigerant. you have air and non condensibles in the refrigerant system.

SOURCE: back air blows cold air, the front blows warmer air

I recenly had the same problem on my 1999 suburban, even after I replaced the whole ac system.
The heater valve, which is under the air filter area was not closing, causing heat to be blowing over the evaporator core. I used a zip tie to keep it in the closed position, and ac went from 70 degrees to 40. I think the vacuum switch is bad, 40 dollars (dealer part). You can also pull the vacuum hose off the switch, which is on the firewall and connect it dirctly to valve and it closes the valve, but fits loosley. Use silicone around vac hose if you go this route.

The front air blows cold but the back air is blowing hot


Low on freon. It needs to put on a set of gauges at minimum to check. Just adding freon, does't always fix the problem. To much freon, you will start blowing seals or lines.

Low freon will cause the compressor to short cycle, when the compressor runs the pressure in the low line is pulled down and the low pressure switch turns it off. Not running the pressure builds up and turns it back on. In the old days there was no low pressure switch, with no freon to carry the oil the compressor was destroyed.

your auxillary fan is not working. this fan is responsible for cooling the freon that is being circulated in your cooling system... check if there are any loose wires in front of the engine bay.

the auxillary fan is located right beside your radiator fan.

I have a 2004 Trailblazer and my rear a/c starts out blowing cold air but gets warm shortly after but the front a/c keeps blowing cold air all the time???? what could cause that ????


Just a little low on freon can make it get too cold and it freezs if you in position to check the freon level you'll find with the system on high and the engine reved up the low pressure is below 25PSI. fill it to reved up is above 25 and your problem will go away. Low on freon will make it cold enough to frezze up and then warm up as the air does'nt go though the ice. it'll work good as you start up till it frezzes and after it's stopped up with ice it blows warm (it's really too cold). the more freon in the system the warmer it'll all blow because all the pressures are higher and it's the difference in pressures that make it cold.

My air condition want' blow out cold air i try


If your car is more than a few years old, it probably has a leak or a worn compressor. You can add too much freon for the system. It needs to be vacuumed down to a negative pressure before adding freon, and then checked for compressor function and leaks. You may need to take it in to a reputable shop.
