I have a 98 Buick Lesabre Limited. It blows Cool air, but not Cold.And also, I can't seem to make it blow out of the Center Dash Vents.


Cornelius, vent problem could be a pinched or loose vacuum line on controller,faulty AC vacuum motor, faulty AC programmer,etc. needs to be checked out by a good Tech, diagnosed and estimate on repair.
As far as vehicle only blowing cool air, issue could be blend door issue, plugged AC condenser core dirt/debris, low AC refrigerant, plugged AC lines internal, failing compressor, etc., again should be checked out, diagnosed and estimate for repair by a good Tech.
Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

What is the problem now? Please can you help?


If you turn on your AC on one day and nothing happens, you may be dealing with a major component failure. Your vehicle's AC system consists of a compressor, condenser, evaporator, expansion valve, a series of tubes and several fans/blowers. If either one of these components fails to do their job, it may result an entire system failure. For example, if the evaporator blower motor burns out, you will get little to no airflow through the vents.
Most modern vehicles also have safety mechanisms that may prevent a component from engaging if the pressure is low in the system due to a refrigerant leak. Refrigerant can leak for many reasons, including undone welds, loose connections, corrosion, physical damage from road debris, etc. Look for oily stains underneath your car, as they may indicate a leak. If you suspect a refrigerant leak, take your car to General Automotive. We will test the pressure and use special dyes to pinpoint the leak.
Warm Air is Coming Out Instead of Cold As you get in your car and turn on your AC, you probably expect it to be blowing hot air for the first minute or two until the system cycles through enough to cool it. But what if the air never gets cold ? Or maybe it it gets cooler, but not cold enough ? No, your car didn't get confused and turned on heat by accident. There is likely a problem with your condenser.
A condenser's job in a vehicle is to cool the warm refrigerant that was used to make the air cold in the evaporator. A condenser has coils and a fan to push the air through the coils and thus cool the refrigerant. If the condenser coils get dirty or clogged, or if the fan fails, the refrigerant won't be cooled completely, so the air will come out warm. It's best to take your vehicle to an experienced AC Repair professional to troubleshoot this problem if you don't know your way around under the hood.
Cold Air Blows Intermittently So you went for a road trip or a long drive, and after 30 minutes of driving realized that your AC suddenly stopped working or switched to blowing warm air. The cold air returns shortly, and the cycle repeats itself for as long as you are driving. What's wrong with your car?
Intermittent cooling is often caused by the components of your vehicle's AC system freezing up. Typically an iced over evaporator is the culprit. An evaporator covered in ice can't cool the air, so you would have to wait until the ice melts, which is why the cold air eventually returns. There may be numerous issues causing the icing-from a dirty cabin air filter to a blocked evaporator drain or an overcharged system. Look for puddles of water under your car-this could be a sign of a freezing problem.

Location of ac high pressure cutout switch on a 97 Plymouth voyager. Could it be a different problem? Had to replaced the PCM and a couple sensors because of a short in the wiring cluster. Now the ac...


HIGH PRESSURE CUTOFF SWITCH LOCATED ON AC COMPRESSOR DISCHARGE LINE LEADING TO THE CONDENSOR.THE HIGH PRESSURE CUTOFF SWITCH WILL CUT OFF THE AC COMPRESSOR IF SYSTEM PRESSURE RISES TO HIGH CAUSED BY RESTRICTION IN THE REFRIGERANT CIRCUIT OR OVERHEATED CONDENSOR.MAKE SURE COOLING FAN IS RUNNING WHEN THE AC SWITCH IS ON.THE COOLING FAN KEEP CONDENSOR COOL, IF COOLING FAN DONT RUN.YOUR AC WILL STOP BLOWING COLD AIR.HAVE THE REFRIGERANT SYSTEM CHECK OUT.MAKE SURE YOUR LOW SIDE PRESSURE IS 10 - 37 PSI. THE HIGH SIDE PRESSURE SHOULD BE 112 - 210 PSI. CHECK THE AC COMPRESSOR CLUTCH FUSE AND RELAY.

I have a 1999 323i BMW. The AC doesnt blow cold (on cool days it blows cool temperature but not common A/C Cold Air, Hot Days it blows Warm/Hot Air). The heater blows warm air but definitely not common...


First things first.....You must have the air conditioning system hooked up to an a/c system machine and then checked for leaks and also read low and high side pressures. If there are leaks then low Freon (R134a) content and low refrigerant oil can cause the a/c system to not engage the a/c compressor which basically means you will not have proper defrost functionality nor regular air conditioning. Most shops, when working with your air conditioning, will install air conditioning dye to assist them in locating leaks and is the first step in diagnosing all a/c systems. Post the findings after thw

My 2002 Expedition air conditioner will sometimes blow hot air and others cold air


I would check the following possibilities:
1. Is compressor clutch working? - You need to do this when the ac is blowing hot air only - locate compressor drive pulley on engine - rubber belt wraps around it. Start engine and set to max ac. When the ac is blowing hot air, look at the center of the compressor drive pulley using a good flash light - watch it for a while, it should be spinning with the pulley - this means the compressor is engaged. If not, the compressor is not engaged. If your ac is blowing hot air, then the compressor should be engaged and running (trying to cool). If it is not engaged, then your compressor clutch is probably going out. Could be low voltage to clutch, but more likely the clutch is worn out and only working some of the time. Note: if working normally, the compressor clutch will engage and disengage in cycles- but the air should always be cold. If clutch is bad, compressor would need to be replaced (sold as one unit). This is tricky to diagnose and could take some time - you need to do it when ac is blowing hot air but set to max cooling.

2. Low on refrigerant or refrigerant has moisture in it? If your ac blows cold initially after being off for a while, then heats up, and continues to regularly cycle back and forth between hot and cool air, then the system may be low on refrigerant or the refrigerant may have moisture in it that is freezing and restricting refrigerant flow. An a/c shop can check refrigerant level and even replace refrigerant if moisture is suspected.

Could be other issues, but I would start with these.

Good luck

AC doesn't blow cold air, but refrigerant levels


The low side pressure seems ok the high side would help,Is your compressor cycling and is the air coming out even slightly cool?slight over charge cold effect cooling ability.I wish I could be more help. I will have to think about this one.maybe you could make sure your temp.door is actually in the commanded cold position.

AC is blowing but no cool air, took it in and


without hooking up a manifold gauge set to check high and low side pressures it makes it much harder to diagnose. however air and or moisture in the system could cause this as well as a weak compressor. or a partially clogged thermostatic expansion valve. good luck and I hope this helps!!!

Impala has dual climate control. AC blows cold on


with a dual climate control system, it is imperative for a proper refrigerant charge to be maintained. the symptom you describe is a possible indicator of low charge on the system. the ac evaporator core is closest to the right side of vehicle thereby making air feel cooler on that side, on the left side of the vehicle the cooled air has farther to travel and warms up from cabin air before it discharged from the vents. this is the most probable issue for your vehicle...however if the charge is accurate, the issue would be more so in the air temperature doors which is located deep inside the dash...i hope this helps...good luck!

A/c blows hot


Your car is low on refrigerant.
  1. Your system requires R-134A refrigerant which is available at most auto parts stores.
  2. You will also need a hose to connect the refrigerant to the AC system.
  3. You will need to locate the low side AC fitting (looks like a nipple)
  4. With the car running and the AC turned on high, attach the hose to the AC fitting,
  5. attach a can of refrigerant to the other end of the hose.
  6. Turn the screw on the hose to puncture the top of the refrigerant.
  7. Move the can back and forth until the refrigerant is empty.
  8. Detach the hose from the AC system.
Check to see if frost forms on the AC lines under the hood and cool air blowing from the vents inside. If the air isn't cold enough, add another can of refrigerant.
CAUTION: Do not overfill the system. If the system doesn't "**** in" the refrigerant, the compressor needs resetting (disconnect battery 5 min in GM cars and trucks)
I hope this solves your AC issue. All the best!

AC STOPPED BLOWING COLD; ONLY BLOWS ON MAX MANUAL SETTING


Your AC is low on refrigerant; The AC compressor needs a minimum amount of regrigerant to run. If and when it does run (while low on refrigerant) the air coming out of the vents will not be cold. The refrigerant you require is R-134A and is available over the counter but if you are the least bit unsure as to how to add refrigerant, taking it to a garage that does AC recharging would be your best play. If you want to try to add refrigerant on your own you will need the following, 1LB can of R-134A, an AC hose adapter to deliver the refrigerant, and preferably an AC pressure guage to ensure you are not overfilling the AC line which will damage the system.
