Two potential problems 1 the seals have dried out in the system from no use over the last year, If you do not leave your climate control on ''auto'' you must run your air-con for at least an hour on load - once a week - this will lubricate and help preserve the seals in the system. 2 These earlier cars were prone to air-con pipe corrosion (quite visible to the eye), where the pipe travels along the engine bay. check this out first. Hope this helps - good luck.

Could be that the system needs re-charging with freon, if its not been used for a year, it probably needs an overhaul, Get some one whor's qualified to check the aircon system over. Otherwise you'll just be pumping freon into the atmosphere creating you own hole in the ozone layer.

My 03 Impala is throwing the code that declares the catalytic converter is not working efficently... . how can I determine exactly what that is and will it effect the way the air conditioner works?

Nothing to do with your air conditioner

Where did you come up with that?

Your exhaust converter failed in 8 years
& should last 12 or a lot more

Need to find out why

I suspect the engine hasn't run right in years
& ruined it

Can not go to inspection like that

Coolant system is not putting out. Has been sitting for 1 year, probably the seal has popped?, the gas is out?

Need lots more information to diagnose. Do you mean the heater is not working, the air conditioner is not working, or is the car overheating?

Air Conditioner will not blow cold air (only slightly cool air) but air compressor is working. What can be wrong? Fan speed works fine.

chances are it needs regasing/presureising,unless you use a/c for about 15 mins a day(on average) a/c gas needs re charging every 4/5 years.

Air conditioner not working for 4+ years

what you need is a real aircon technician, obviously the people fixing it don't know how to fix it.

Check the AC fuse. I had this problem with mine a few years back. It might be all it is!
