Why does the Air Conditioned, cold air, not come out through all 4 of the vents at the same temperature?


Please forgive me if this sounds like a dismissal of your issue, but do you have dual-zone climate control? If you do, is it enabled?

2008 Jeep Liberty-My heater was barely warm-blowing fine tho. Was told I had a plugged heater core and needed a new one. Had a new heater core put in and then my air conditioner stopped blowing cold air....


I woild be checking the vent controls as if the ac is working and the core was blocked then the air would be cool when the heat was selected but not changing Fixing the heater has resulted in a /c not being good enough to cool the air if the vent is not properly selecting. The point is that if the vent selection is not working properly (vacuum hoses) then the 2 faults will be related.

Air conditioner


sure.

what is your goal hot air, you never said,

got full fan speed? on high>? sure.
got full engine coolant heat 180F or more holding??? if not all is lost.
if car has a heater core water valve is it open>?
are the 2 heater core water tubes both fully hot,(hand test)
yes> good.
now you need air flow through the core (heater)
that means the damper most be open,, is it?

in that order. (heat)
the dampers on hondas can be complex. (10x on electric damper motors , aka, damper actuators)
see part 5 and 6 here

the fSM covers the complex tests of dampers, and not having
a real FSM makes this near impossible.
why , because your dampers are no like anyothers on earth.
other cars use different types. and are all unique .
unlike CABLES
unlike vacuum servos.
see>?

here are the basics for heat.

Left Vents blow warm/hot air when calling for cold air


Usually a sign of a faulty blend door under the dash.
The blend doors direct air thru the ac and heater core along with the upper and lower vents.

In my 1998 Honda Accord Lx the hot air does not come out of the heater vents in the floor, the same is true for cold air in the middle vents on the dash. The side vents on the dash work fine.

WHAT IS WRONG WITH THE AIR CONDITIONER IF THE 2 RIGHT VENTS BLOW COLD AIR BUT THE LEFT VENTS BLOW THE CIRCULATED VENT AIR (WARM)


By my experience you have a low charge, it sounds nuts, but for some reason it will blow warm on pass side and cool on driver side with low charge.
If the charge is correct, than you have a actuator issue.
It will have to be looked at for proper diagnosis.
I would start with a a/c performance test.

2006 malibu air conditioner blows warm air on driver's side and cold air on passenger's side.


1. If it worked fine recently, I would suspect low r134a charge. 2. If you have dual zone heating/cooling, your mode motor may be out on the driver's side. Switch the temp up an down slowly and check under the dash for the actuators to move. If one side moves but the other does not, you have found your problem.
