Question about 2000 Dodge Neon

1 Answer

My daughter's 2000 Dodge Neon's air conditioner wasn't cooling very sell so she took it in to have freon added. The shop drained all the freon out and then tried to add new freon but none will go into the system. The only way I could get it to take any was to relieve pressure from the high pressure side while putting freon in the low side. It?s like filling a jug with a hole in the bottom. The system builds pressure but will not cool. I checked the fusses . I don't believe the compressor is engaging.

You need the compressor running to get freon into the system
using gauges on a manifold you allow the compressor to suck the gas in to the system until you get a pressure reading at the high side gauge
That is the correct amount of gas for the system
take it to an accredited ac specialist shop to have the job done properly

SOURCE: 2000 Dodge Caravan air conditioner problems

heating and cooling fans are generally one and the same. changing freon doesn't always fix the problem... did you have the system pressure checked for leaks first.

Second determine if the vents are opening properly (switching from heat to cooling) basically when you change to cool it closes air access to the heater core.

SOURCE: Dodge Ram AC not blowing cold

By pass both pressure switches one at a time with small wire or a paper clip. If comperssor kicks on replace the swich that you bypassed.
if not it could be the fan clutch ot the compressor. Compressor runs about $400.00

SOURCE: air conditioner in 2000 Dodge Caravan Needs to be Replaced

Cost of repair will depend on which component of the AC system needs repair/replacement. There are several components to the system, with each component costing different amounts and each requiring different amounts of labor to repair or replace.
But, how do you know there is no refrigerant left in the system? Have you had the system charged recently and it leaked out?

SOURCE: Adding Freon to 1997 Dodge Dakota SLT

You can purchase R134a cans with a built in gauge so you don't overcharge... Assuming the system has not completely discharged, usually a can or less will do. Here is a link with some basic instructions:

SOURCE: What should the high and low side freon pressure

The re-fill kit for the r-134 will only fit on one of the sides. You want to fill the low pressure side, but be sure you have a gauge not to overfill. he high pressure will be the larger side. But the gauge will only fit on one of the inlets for safety precautions.

Got 2000 dodge neon will start when cold run good but when motor warms up won't start


Nikki is the engine light on, are there any codes,have you had a tune up or any other work done lately.when you say it won't start when warm(do you mean engine will not turn over, or does engine turn and refuses to fire.
If I had to guess failing fuel pump, they tend not to build fuel pressure when ran a while(warmed up) and when left to cool build somewhat better pressure.

My air conditioner works but does not cool . i have added freon the last two years and fixed the problem ,did the same thing this year but did not help .


When self adding freon after it leaks out you get air trapped in the system. After adding freon a couple of times the air expands not leaving room for the needed freon. To continue adding freon with air tapped will knock the compressor out pretty quickly, there's not enough room for both & the air is keeping the freon from being able to cool properly give the false indication of being low on freon. The freon you are adding has the dye added to assist in finding the leak since freon does not evaporate nor dissipate it its being leaked out. A black light will assist locating the leak. The best thing is to have the unit checked & serviced by a mechanic...he'll charge about $ 150.00 to check for leaks, remove the old freon...his machine will tell him how much air its trapped in the system by how little freon is removed. For the service fee he will replace valves & gaskets, where needed, correcting most leaks. After sucking the system down & recharging the problem should be corrected.

Not blowing cold air, but has freon


I had this problem before. If you were hearing a rattling noise everytime you ran your air conditioner, and now it is not blowing cool air, that means your compressor is gone, you need another one.
I have a Dodge Stratus and when I would run my air i began to hear this rattling like balls were in there, but not real loud but enough to know that it was noticeable and that is what it was. I hope this helps

My air conditioning dose not get cold enought


This means you need to add more freon, you can take it in to get added or just go to your nearest auto shop and buy some with a connector and just turn your car on with your air conditioner on high, and connect the line to your can then to the low side of the air conditioner lines and hold the can up right so you let the gasses in, not liquid. when can is empty remove from low side and be careful disconnecting from can because freon is very nasty stuff and may still have a little in the can. and repeat until necessary.

Air conditioner not cooling ...I could find no leak and added freon, but cools some on drivers side but not on passengers side.


You probably have a short and Volvo can fix it.
When I took mine into a shop for AC repair that is what they told me.
I am lucky not to need air except on the driver's side.
Just close all other vents or visit the dealer.
I am in Phoenix and even at 79 inside it is better than 114 outside. (today).

Air conditioner blow warm air after freeon


you could have a leak in the ac system which would be why you had to add freon. take it to a repair shop and ask them to check fo rleaks because adding more freon wont fix your issue if there is a leak.

Air conditioner only works while moving. The AC stops cooling when stopped and idleing. Anyone know what causes this?


Your freon level is low, and not circulating on slow compressor speeds. Stop by any shop that has a sign stating they work on a/c and they can recharge it for you in a few minutes. Here where I live they charge about $20.00 labor plus a charge for the freon they put in, they sell it by the pound.
