The most common cause would be a slow leak in the system, and Freon might have been lost, causing warm air to blow. There also can be lots of other possibilities, air conditioner is a very sensitive system. I suggest you bring it to a place and have them look at it; if the systems was not discharged or recharged right after the expansion valve was replaced, that may be why it is not working correctly.

If the amount of refrigerant in the system is correct, then we suspect the fan controller module is malfunctioning. Or, in some vehicles, the air-conditioning system for the front and rear are both supplied refrigerant from a single compressor on the engine. If this is your system, then there must be some air blockage on the front/rear air-conditioning system.

Test it and tell us news.

The pressure means nothing as far as the state of charge. You need to have the system completely evacuated and recharged with the specific charge weight for that vehicle. Only then can the pressures or anything else mean anything.

Why ac blowing hot air


start off with the cheap possibilities and make your way threw.
I'd start off with replacing Air Charge temperature sensor, make sure your AC Hose isnt leaking anywhere, if those dont solve it then replace ur AC clutch, last chance would be replacing AC compressor. sometimes the compressor will malfunction randomly. or the AC clutch might malfunction aswell. covering these steps somewhere along the line you will have working AC again! good luck

A.c in my 1999 alero is blowing hot air i think it need to be recharged?


FIRST CHECK USING AC GAUGE SET TO SEE IF YOU STILL HAVE REFRIGERANT IN THE SYSTEM. BECAUSE YOUR AC COMPRESSOR FUSE OR RELAY IS BAD ALSO AC HEATER CONTROL SWITCH FAULTY.YOU DONT WANT TO ADD TOO MUCH REFRIGERANT IN THE SYSTEM. WHEN YOU CHECK AC REFRIGERANT THE LOW SIDE PRESSURE SHOULD BE 32 - 40 AND HIGH SIDE PRESSURE SHOULD BE 150 - 228 PSI. WORK SAFELY WEAR SAFETY GOGGLE WHEN WORKING ON ANY KIND AC REFRIGERANT SYSTEM. REFRIGERANT CAN CAUSE BLINDNESS IF GET IN EYES. DONT INHALE R 134A REFRIGERANT CAN CAUSE UNCONSIOUS AND DEATH WORK IN WELL AIR VENTILLATION AREA.

Why my 1999 oldsmobile alero runnig hot after I've gotten it fix


there may be air trapped in the coolant system. the fans may not be connected since you had the radiator replaced. bring it back to the mechanic who did the work and tell him your not satisfied.he should be responsible for the discrepany.
