Question about 1997 Lincoln Town Car

A/C My air conditioner was working and then would stop being cold after 5 to 10 miles. Now it isn't working at all. Just blows hot air. I tried adding freon and it did not need any.

Sounds like the compressor has gone out of your AC system. They are not too terrible to change, but can be time consuming depending on location. IF the freon is good, check the compressor and you should here it at idle speed w/ hood open clicking on and off as the clutch engages and disengages when the AC is operated. If there is no clicking on and off by the compressor, new compressor will be required. IF it gets cold when first adding freon, and then fades quickly, it is likely a leak in one of the high or low sides of the lines between the coil and the compressor.

Hope this helps!

Suburban overheating and air conditioner blowing hot


If you have a viscous fan hub have it replaced as it is not working. The problem you have is that the engine is not driving the fan to draw air through the radiator when idling so the engine overheats . When moving the air flow from driving cools the radiator and so the temp goes back down. If you have electric fans have the codes read to find the fault or check why the electric fans are not working.

If this isn't the problem the AC compressor relay may also cause this, flip a coin.

Air conditioner


Check whether the warm air isn't going in with the cold air .Coolant line that runs into the firewall on the passenger side of the engine which is toward the bottom half of the firewall on the passenger side. If there is warm air going into the vents with the cold air then it blows warm air. You may have to shut it manually because it gets stuck sometime. Check it out.

Air conditioner is not blowing cold air,


What pressure did you have? And Is the front of the compressor turning when you have this pressure. Also feel the two lines going to the compressor, one should be hot and one should be cold.
