Hi this sounds like you will need a re-gas of the ac system...

2003 Ford Windstar AC is not working. It only blows out hot air. The blend door act. works properly(We have already tested it). There are properly freon in the Vehicle. We are at a lost. Please help


Can you tell if compressor clutch is engaged? If clutch isn't engaged only the belt pulley will be moving and the compressor clutch is not engaged. If not engaged, no ac.

Can you check for applicable hvac codes? To check codes, your-self, at the least, you need an obd2 code reader, that will check manufacturer specific codes as well as po.

I haven't looked at your wiring, you could probably check voltage and ground for compressor, hvac on.6158ef87-8677-4b29-952a-e287698970b5.jpg
In the diagram, you see applicable fuses--clutch relay-- the top wire at ac clutch is voltage--black wire is ground.

2000 pontiac grand prix ac problem


If the compressor is working, a mechanic would check the low and high gauge pressure.
The freon has to flow thru the system to work, and the cooling fan draws air thru the condenser to get rid of the heat from inside the car.
If the ac clutch is working but the gauges show equal pressure, the compressor may be faulty.

I have freon, and there are no leaks and had a air compressor put in 2 years ago but my car is blowing hot air only


There are a few things that can cause this. First off, make sure that the compressor is turning on when you turn on the AC switch. With the AC on full blast, look at the engine, locate the compressor and make sure that the center hub (the clutch) is spinning, not just the pulley around it that the belt rides on.

If the clutch is not spinning, or if it cycles on and off repeatedly, then your AC compressor is not functioning properly. This could be due to a failed compressor or to a low level of freon in the system.

If the clutch is spinning, then the next thing you should check is your freon level, get a temperature-dependent basic freon gauge, (like the one I posted in the link at the bottom) hook it up, set the outside air temperature on the gauge and then it will show you the ideal freon pressure level. What most people do not know is that having too much freon in a system will cause it to blow just as warm as an under-filled system. The freon level has to be in the "sweet spot" for it to properly work.

If your freon is at the proper level and your AC clutch is on and functioning then it could possibly be the AC switch in your instrument panel, or one of a couple of different parts in the engine compartment, but 90 percent of the time the problem will be found within the bounds of what I just listed. Good luck!

1997 Nissan 4 cylinder truck AC works excellent throwing snowballs cold air, then it will blow hot air. Relay switch and clutch has been replaced....Did not fix problem!


sounds like compressor isn't working properly or heater vacuum is opening vent to heater core.try turning on ac and if it cuts on and off repeatedly every few seconds the freon level is not correct or high pressure switch may not be working make sure radiator fan comes on when ac is on.if all this is working properly check vacuum hoses to heater may be opening vent doors to heater.hope this helps

My 2001 suzuki xl7 air conditioner blows hot air only


Lots of possibilities. The first thing I would do is to have someone turn it on and off, while you look around under the hood (carefully, because fans go on and off).
The first thing you want to see, is if the AC compressor clutch is turning on and off properly. When the fan clutch is off, the outside of the pully will spin with the belt, but the inside will be standing still. When it is on, the whole pulley turns. If this does not work, then it could be a fuse, switch, or the clutch itself.
If this is working, then you need to look into the small sight glass in the top of the receiver/dryer, which is a small vertical cylinder. It should show a flow of clear fluid. Bubbles means it is low on freon.
But the controls could be screwed up, with the hot water staying on, the cold air not be allowed in, etc.'
Operating the controls should allow you to see these things working.
To go beyond this, like check the compressor, the expansion valve, etc., you would need to put a set of pressure gauges on, which are about $50, and come with instructions. There are 2 because you want to compare the input and output sides of the compressor.

Air Conditioniong not working


U may be low in Freon gas.
When Freon is low there's low pressure switch that will prevent A/C compressor clutch from engaging to protect it from failure.
So, first check Freon pressure & any leaks form lines & hoses fittings.
Even if the fan is working, that doesn’t indicate proper compressor OP'S.
Look at the compressor front side you'll see the clutch stationary while the AFT pulley moving.

Then put air-condition compressor switch to ON (Engage),
You should see the clutch engage & start rotate,
If NOT, this is very clear indication u r low in Freon.

A/c in jetta blows hot air, its been charged, compressor comes on.


you need to have it diagnosed by a professional. These are complicated systems even to a trained tech. You may be over or under charged, have a clogged expansion valve, have a leak or many other issues. This model has a rcv refrigerant control valve inside the compressor which regulates the pressure of the compressor. If you notice the compressor never shuts off like conventional auto a/c's do the only time the clutch works is when you turn it on or off. Can be complicated.
