Ac units create a lot of condensation which appears to be fluid from you ac system... This should have be going on for quits some time which if it where refrigerate you should have run out of it awhile back.

My ac compressor want stay on


if your cars ac compressor runs a second and stops over and over again , this is a classic symptom of low refrigerant level ,. most often caused by a leak in system , most leaks come from shrader valve or actual compressor , but in rare cases there are other causes too !!

I have a Nissan navara the a/c has stop working


The most common cause of this is that the AC system has a leak and has lost its charge of refrigerant. You will need to have a vacuum pump attached and pull a vacuum on the system and see if it leaks down, if it does you have a leak, common areas of AC leaks are the AC compressor front seal (install rebuilt) condenser leaks and leaks at the AC line seals.

Ac was running when driving to the store, stopped to gas car then on the way out turned on ac no air coming out and the ac light does not turn on. i checked the fuses all are working but no power running...


Most likely the AC compressor clutch isn't engaged. This happens when the refrigerant pressure switch doesn't detect pressure in the coolant lines. The cause is usually a refrigerant leak.

This way the AC compressor is protected from running dry and possible damage.

Let your local repairshop check AC line pressure - if no pressure, look for the leak first then refill with fresh refrigerant.

Ac not working


AC's have a refrigerant pressure sensor to prevent damage to the AC compressor when there's a leak. When there's no pressure the AC shuts down and won't activate the compressor clutch. Have the AC tubing and couplings checked on leaks.

A/c not blowing air


Possibly a leak in the AC system. When refrigerant pressure drops a switch shuts down the AC system completely to prevent damage to the compressor.
Check cold / heat on incoming / outgoing pipe of the compressor. If temperature on both sides is the same the clutch of the compressor isn't activated.

Check with your local repair workshop for leaking AC pipes / coupling

AC does not work. Compressor will not engage Blower only blows on high speed. Is the two a related problem? Where should I look to solve the problem


The most common reason for the compressor not engaging is low refrigerant pressure. The ac system has a safety switch that will not allow the compressor to engage when there is not enough refrigerant pressure because the the refrigerant carries the compressor lubricant throughout the system. Have the system checked for proper charge. You probably have a leak. The fan is probably a separate issue.

How do you replace an air compressor in a 99 olds alero


TAKE CAR TO GARAGE OR DEALERSHIP.THEY HAVE TO DISCHARGE AND RECOVER THE REFRIGERANT FROM CAR STORING IT IN STORAGE RECOVER UNIT.AGAINST THE LAW TO LET OUT REFRIGERANT IN THE ATOMOSHERE CAUSING OZONE DAMAGE.WHEN REFRIGERANT IS REMOVED THIS WILL BE THE CHEAPEST WAY.FIRST GO TO AUTO PARTS STORE BUY A PACK OF O - RINGS FOR AIRCONDITIONERS SYSTEM.THEY SHOULD BE GREEN COLOR NOT BLACK ONES.THEY ARE THE UNIVERSAL O -RINGS NOT MADE FOR AIR CONDITION SYSTEM.THE REFRIGERANT WILL DESTROY AND CAUSE LEAKS.WHEN YOU BUY O - RINGS.BUY NEW ACCUMULATOR THE OLD ONE FULL OF MOISTURE.YOU NEED TO REPLACE THE EXPANSION TUBE OR ORIFICE TUBE.IT IS LOCATED AT CONDENSOR LOWER LINE FITTING.BUY 1 BOTTLE OF R- 134 REFRIGERANT OIL. THEN BUY NEW COMPRESSOR.WHEN REMOVING OLD COMPRESSOR POUR THE OIL OUT OF IT.MEASURE HOW MUCH OIL IN COMPRESSOR.OKAY TO REMOVE AC COMPRESSOR FIRST REMOVE DRIVE BELT.THEN SAFELY RAISE SUPPORT VECHICLE ON JACK STANDS ON LEVEL SOLID GROUND REMOVE WHEEL AND SPLASH SHIELD ON PASSENGER SIDE.DISCONNECT THE ELECTRICAL CONNECTOR FROM COMPRESSOR AND REMOVE COMPRESSOR REFRIGERANT LINES.THEN REMOVE COMPRESSOR MOUNTING BOLTS 2 BOLTS AT TOP 1 OR 2 BOLTS ON BOTTOM OF COMPRESSOR.WHEN REMOVING OLD COMPRESSOR.SEE HOW MUCH OIL COMES OUT.SHOULD BE A OUNCE OR TWO.GM COMPRESSOR HOLDS 10 TO 8 OUNCES.BUT WE DONT KNOW HOW MUCH IN SYSTEM.WHEN YOU BUY NEW COMPRESSOR.MEASURE HOW MUCH SHIPPING OIL IT HAS BY POURING IT OUT.TO BE ON SAFE SIDE I WOULD POUR 2 OUNCE REFRIGERANT OIL IN COMPRESSOR. POUR 1 OUNCE OIL IN ACCUMULATOR.REPLACE ALL THE O -RINGS AT THE COMPRESSOR AND ACCUMULATOR AND THE LOWER CONDENSORS LINES WHEN REPLACING THE ORIFICE TUBE.USE NEEDLE NOSE PLIERS TO REMOVE THE ORIFICE TUBE.BESURE TO PLACE THE LONG SCREEN ON THE INSIDE.BESURE TO LUBRICATE ALL O - RINGS WITH REFRIGERANT OIL.WHEN YOU PUT EVERYTHING BACK TOGETHER.DONT OVER TIGHTEN THE REFRIGERANT LINES WHICH WILL CUT THE O - RINGS CAUSE LEAKING. TAKE CAR TO A GARAGE THAT DOES AC WORK.LET THEM PUMP DOWN THE SYSTEM AND LEAK TEST THEN CHARGE AC SYSTEM UP.THIS WILL SAVE YOU MONEY BECAUSE IF YOU BUY A VACUUM PUMP THATS ABOUT $400.00 AND MANIFOLD GAUGE SET A GOOD SET RANGE FROM $100.00 TO $300.00 DOLLARS.SEE YOUR AC COMPRESSOR $270.00 TO OVER $300.00 THAT ADDS UP.HOPE MOST THIS INFORMATION WILL HELP YOU. IF YOU HAVE ANY PROBLEMS THE HAYNES REPAIR MANUAL CAN ALSO HELP YOU IT HAS PHOTOS AND INFORMATION HOW TO REMOVE AC COMPRESSOR.

A/C will not blow in 2000 Jeep Wangler


preform and electrical check of the necessary componets, check AC fuse for blown fuse, check fan switch and fuses for power, if you have ac guages check ac refrigerant pressures, you have a pressure cycling switch that if low pressure exits in the system will not alllow the ac compressor to activate and circulate the refrigerant... it is a common practice to bypass that to install refrigerant, but you may have a leak so if you suspect a leak then add leak detector and refrigerant at the same time , look for any leaks and repair as needed... if you are unsure then have a qualified ac tech preform thses repairs...
