A/C Troubleshoot,Set up gauges on low and high side. Low side reading 200 high side 550. Compressor working fine. No visible leaks. Freon blowing out on opposite side of LP connect? Hot air in car.


Check to make sure that the engine cooling fan or fans are working. Sounds like there isn't any air flow through the condenser. Also it won't hurt to wash out the condenser and radiator.

1995 ford windstar 3.8L when i turn on my a/c it starts to overheat temp gauge goes 3/4 the way almost overheating same timekeep hearing a clicking noise every 30 seconds or so.


My guess either radiator is clogged or compressor is bad or low on freon...u said its clicking every 30 secs? Check freon level with a gauge. Is the air cool? Sometimes though car will run at normal temp but with ac on and condenser heating up radiator can't keep up. Flush and/or clean and check radiator/condenser for flattened fins

The freon on my Hyundai Sonata keeps leaking. I have taken it in 5 x in last month. Had new condenser put on last summer by dif mech. After 2 wks freon was gone. he didnt chnge orings. Cant find leak


the system has to have enough Freon to produce pressures to properly check for leaks. the entire system needs to be checked, lines, Schrader valves, condenser, all fittings, evaporator, compressor seals. there is a leak it just has not been found.

My ac condenser does not work


Do you mean the compressor?

Assuming there are no leaks, you could just need a little freon. But, If the fan (on the radiator) is not kicking on then your compressor may not come on either as it needs the fan to run to help keep the compressor cool. Typically it stems from being low on freon though and Autozone sells freon you can self administer but I would advise asking someone familiar with adding freon to help you so that you don't over fill or try to fill it from the wrong port.

Ac condenser stopped working what are possible solutions


I am going to assume you meant AC Compressor as the condenser is basically like a radiator in that it cools the freon.

I would say that your freon is probably too low to kick the compressor on. This could be simple as adding some freon (With Leak stop(just to be sure)) would get it working again. The question is, why did it get low? Could be just age and it needs a little freon but usually means that there is a leak somewhere (Hopefully it is not the condenser leaking). Some leaks are small enough that you just need to add freon every month or so but they eventually get bigger. Look for oil around the AC connections and hoses. Could be an O-ring that has gone bad. Hopefully it is simply low on freon.

Condenser fan not engaging when A/C turned on. All fuses and relays look fine. Tested fan with eternal power and it runs.


Possibly low on refrigerant. When system is low on freon, it does not build up enough high side pressure to engage the condenser fan . When pressure is high enough. a high side pressure switch kicks on the cond. fan to maintain high side pressure. Have the system evacuated and recharged to proper level. A system dye can be added to check for any possible leaks.

How can i tell if my condenser is bad


Well the average DIY can't verify a leaking condenser.
You would need a black lite if using dye in the system or a sniffer to sniff for the freon gas.
I would get a second opinion.

My Ac keep losing Freon with no visable leaks, Just filled eight weeks ago and is blowing warm air already.


Did you put some freon oil in it or a can of stop leak. A lot of times freon will leak from the o rings. If you just add freon and no oil it will slowly leak out. Add about 4 ounces of oil and then your freon. Let the car run w/ac on for about 30 minutes. This should work.
