You need a Manifold gauge set. Autozone or Oreillys may have a loaner for a deposit. The first thing to check for is the Low and High pressure sides of the A/C. Next would be the black oblong tank, a freeze switch on some systems is in addition to the pressure switch. If the Compressor is making noise you may need oil. If so, there are now different weights specific to the brand of Vehicle.

Autozone and others have pressure switches AND their specifications. You can tell by the pressure readings when the switches cut out. Then compare with specs.

The ideal amount of pressure is midway between the Low and High pressure sides. This will keep the compressor running the longest and the system cooling the best. When testing open the windows, observe the Freon lines- if they sweat or freeze. When the hood is open you are venting a lot of heat from the engine. The pressure in the A/C will rise from this heat.

If you think your pressure is OK and want 1 part to try, I would go with a low pressure switch.

My lincon is bloweing nothing but hot air what could be roung

Well for the airconditioner to work you will need freon 134a.You will also have to inspect for leaks at the air conditioning hoses. If your low on freon the system wont turn on if you full of freon then a low pressure switch or high pressure switch or even the airconditioning pump maybe the solution

My 2000 s10 airconditioning will not wok have aleady changed relay, the fuse is good compressor comes on but it still blows hot air . tried to fill w freon , but would not take canisters were...

Hello: Check and make sure the air mix door is in the A/C position, air mix door is sometimes called the blend door. If it is a manual system follow the cable that is connected to the lever that goes from red (hot) to blue (cold) see if it moves the door when you move the lever on the control.

Aircondition not working....just blowing warm is working

Either you are out of coolent or the compressor is not working.

First check the fuses, then lift the hood and have a friend turn the air on. The compressor should cycle, if not take it to a mechanic. If it does cycle you are low on freon, take it to a mechanic for a system charge. Make sure they check for leaks first.
