Air condition


If you've never worked on an air conditioning system before, I would recommend you take it to a shop and get it checked out.
If the system is low on freon, you have a leak that would need to be fixed to keep any freon you add from leaking back out. And it could have an electrical problem instead of being low on freon.
Freon gas is minus 35 degrees when it comes out of the can.

When i turn on my air conditioner in my 1999 durango it blows out hot air. can i put in antifreeze myself or do i need to take to the dealership?


Antifreeze is only for the radiator, does not affect the air conditioner, make sure you have the setting on cold, if it is still hot than take it to your local air conditioner re gas station, most auto electricians do it, dealerships usually send them out which you end up paying extra for!!! You just need a re gas in your air conditioner.

Re gas air conditioning Lexus LS430


The gas your talking of is Freon 134a bought in 1 pound cans with a kit to allow you to regfill the system using the kits low pressure port connector and install a 1 pound can to see if all is well before you add too much more.......the whole system usually holds only 2- 2-3/4 cans empty.

How to add refrigerants? To a 2000 buick lesabre.My car is blowing hot air it went from cool to hot. and now it just hot air coming out.


look for the fitting that is the smaller of the two and is attached to the line that is the larger of the two, this is the "low" fill side, add 2 cans of r134a freon each can is one pound the system empty holds 2 3/4 pounds of freon thats 2 3/4 cans.
I would buy 1 can of leak detector/freon combo and one can of dye/freon combo, if it takes more add a small amount of a third can that has an oil mixture in with the freon that would complete your systems needs the cheapest and fastest way possible.
If you want it done to the book then you need to have a certified A/C man vacumn pump down the system, replace the reciever drier, add freon and oil to fill the system and then check for leaks.
Happy Motoring!!

How do I fix a Air condition blow out hot air?


Go to your local auto parts purchase a a/c charge kit for about $69.00, find the low pressure(suction) fill port, there are two ports in every a/c system one is a low pressure side used primarily to fill a system with freon 123a or the like and it is the larger valve mounted on the line, then there is the dangerous high side valve, this is a smaller diameter valve mounted to a smaller diamet a/c line, this is under extreme pressure so donot attempt to fill this high side with freon as it can backfire on you and cause injury.
The low side fill kit will not fit on the high side port so thank godness for that.
start the vehicle put the a/c on full cold high blow fan speed, start filling the low side with a can of 123a freon+oil additive, which equals one pound of freon and check the inside a/c vents, getting cold? If its perfect then you are done, the system may have a very small slow leak and if it only takes a one pound can to fill it once or twice a year you are ok, if it takes more you may want to add a second pound can of freon 134a containing a dye additive that will work its way into the system and show you where the leaks are by exposing a color once it hits the air coming out of the systems defective seals etc.,also they sell a sealer + freon one pound can that can be used to try to fix the leak without having to get too expensive on the repairs.
A car's air conditioning system only hold like 2 3/4 pounds of freon, so in the event you happen to over fill the system a high pressure blow valve usually mounted on the a/c compressor will purge off the excess, but let me warn you they blow off without any warning and can startle you. Always think safety first, wear protective equipment. Work Smart, Work Safe.
Happy Motoring!!!

When i turn on ac it blows hot air


Normally due to low freon. Also, notice if the a/c compressor clutch engages, as it will not if the freon is low.

AC is not working


Sounds like the A/C system just needs to be recharged. When was the last time you had this done? Just take it in to your mechanic and he can do it for you and if that's not it for some reason, then he will be able to find the problem but most likely you need more freon added.
