A/c compressor stopped cooling,clutch is engaged,is it possible to have too much freon in the unit,,

The system needs to be vacuumed down with a recovery machine and the proper amount of oil and freon added to ensure proper operation. The system most likely has air/moisture within it and will not function properly. Have it proffessionally serviced for adequate operation

Why does the a/c work fine at an idle and stopped but will stop cooling after 2 miles of driving?

Have the system serviced as it sounds like it is low on freon. You have enough to make the system work at idle but when run at higher rpm the low side pressure may drop and the pressure switch will shut off the compressor.

2000 mazda 626 wont blow cold air i have replaced compressor dryer and flushed the system and reinstalled new freon any ideas

There is a valve that stops hot coolant from entering the heater box. It is probably stuck open. murf427

My lincoln mark lt pickup won't blow cool air

My lincoln had the same issue, first it was the A/C compressor (original). I replaced it with another one (used) and worked for 1 month. Then back to hot air. "A/C experts" told me the compressor was out again. I took it to a Mexican auto shop, old building where the guy works alone and to my surprise...HE FOUND THE PROBLEM!! There was no freon leaks, the lines were freezing cold inside the motor, checked freon>>full. He then checked the filter. This filter is on the end of the line where it is crimped that allows the freon to flow thru. Im no mechanic so explaining what it is, forgive me. I can only show you...the line is silver ad in front of you by the radiator, and its the same tube that goes to where you plug it to add freon. There is a filter that was clogged up and prevented the freon from flowing. He removed all the freon, vacuumed out the system/line, and replaced the filter for less that $3.00. Added freon and his cost was $80.00. Thank God for honest people who work hard for a living. I buy the parts, he replaces and I continue to give him my business. Other expensive auto shops with fancy buildings/prices My Lincoln Mark LT now blows arctic cold air!!!

A/C is blowing cold while driving. Idling at stop light or parked the air blows warm. Once moving again it cools back off.

Your problem is most likely that you or low on freon or you need to replace it. I would have your system recharged with new freon. Another less likely possibility is that the clutch is going on your a/c compressor. It may be slipping at low RPMs but catching enough as you bring your RPMs up. Working with freon is best done by someone who is certified to do so.

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...

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

2000 buick lasabre air conditioner has cool air but not cold. Took it to a mechanic and he said the compressor was fine and it had enough freon. He though some sensor was the problem. Took it to a...

A sensor would turn the compressor on and off all the time. If it stays running you most likley have a weak compressor. Signs are not cooling at idle and cools better while driving but not cold as it should be. An
ac gauge set will tell if it is bad.

Air conditioner works every once in a while.


Sounds like your A/C compressor is not cycling off with the pressure cycling switch. The reason the system gets cold on hard acceleration is because your car is equipped with a wide open throttle A/C cutoff relay which turns off the compressor to reduce the load the compressor takes away from the engine.

Try to replace the pressure cycling switch that is located on the AC accumulator. (the black canister close to the passenger side firewall)...The switch can be replaced by unscrewing from the accumulator without refrigerant loss because a schrader (tire type) valve will stop refrigerant from leaking out. Hope this helps...

2003 1500HD Crew Cab - Compressor stopped working

the ac system has a low pressure switch when the unit is low on freon the compressor wont work . this is to keep the compressor from burning up. have your freon level checked.
