Use a spray bottle with water and spray around on the compressor and see if there is bubbles.

Recharged AC, blew cold for 1 day then heard hiss near driver tire and now no cold air.


Whenever you add Freon,you are suppose to leak test first.Your compressor is good,you have a leak somewhere.A good place to take it to is Midas,they changed my freon over from the old stuff to the new R-134a,they leak test it first,that is rule 1 when adding freon.

Heater not blowing hot air & vacuum leak


sounds to me the hissing is the sound of a leaking heater core. Its smells weird becuse coolent usually has a sweet smell that is very noticeable. I bet the floor is wet/carpet damp in the front near the hissing. I bet your coolent level is low as well. Replace heater core.

GMC Acadia AC not working properly


Not sure if I'm too late to answer this one, but you're describing a low refrigerant condition. The hissing noise and constant cycling of the compressor clutch are indicators of that. You should recover the system, record how much refrigerant was recovered, evacuate the system (with a vacuum pump), add A/C dye, and recharge the system to capacity. Common leak areas on these vehicles include the A/C condenser (located in front of the radiator), and the evaporator (located inside the dash, and requires complete removal of the interior dash to replace it). If you can't find a visible leak after running the recharged system with dye for several weeks and it starts to blow warm again, you will need to use an R-134a leak detector to "sniff" areas of the system for a refrigerant leak.

1998 caddy catera rides really hard levellig light fashing on dash can hear a hissing sound from under the car is there a compressor [air] for the shocks any help great


Yes there is a compressor for the level ride.If the light is on or flashing it means there is a diagnostic code or codes in the system.But if you are hearing a hissing noise then look under the vehicle and locate the air leak.You probably have a line that rubbed through somewhere.You might be able to get a repair kit to repair the leak at a auto part store.Hope this helps.Good luck.

Air con hissing noise from vents


Strongly suspect the AC system has sprung a leak somewhere and the refrigerant is 'low' - the 'hissing' noise you hear is normal when the system is 'undercharged.' Solution is inspect the system & repair the leak. If it turns out there is NO leak, then the problem is either at the compressor (low head pressure) and/or the expansion valve at the evaporator.

My air conditioner blows out warm air when I turn the dial all the way to cold. I just recently tried recharging the a/c but it made a hissing sound (it was what I just plugged in). I believe the a/c...


Sounds like you got a leak all right Check compressor clutch as well Motor revs should fluctuate when compressor cuts in and out Could be the seals in the compressor as well You need to find where the hissing noise is coming from

I put a 14 oz can of 134a in my 00 olds alero with no results.


The A/C system is normally a sealed system. This means the R134a only emptied if there was a leak. This system holds approx 24 oz of R134a (check label under the hood or near evaporator) so one can may not activate the compressor due to low pressure in the system.
Before adding anymore, check all tubing, the condensor and near the compressor for signs (oil leaking, hissing) of the leak. Good Luck

Air conditioner not blowing cold after recharge last year


david_simko: based on your description above, it definitely sounds like you have a leak somewhere in your A/C system. If you re-charged your A/C system last year, you should still have plenty of freon (R134-a) coolant in your A/C system. If you are familiar with how the A/C system works on your vehicle, there are two products you can use to help you identify leak in your A/C system. The first is a liquid that you inject into the system. This liquid will come out (in a solid color) in the area(s) of where the leak is accruing. The second device is a electronic freon sniffer. This is a small hand held device with about a 10" antenna on it. This device electronically "sniffs" for freon, and leads you to the area of where freon is leaking. Since you've stated that you re-charged your A/C system last year, and since has degraded from cold air, to warm and now hot air, you will have to (at minimum) partially recharge your A/C system to use one of the two leak detection methods I have mentioned above. PLEASE VOTE FOR THIS REPLY IF YOU HAVE FOUND THIS INFORMATION HELPFUL. Thank you.
