Hi

Yes, this a sure sign of the freon running out. The pump gave it a last push that's where the smoke came from. You can drive the car, but make sure the AC is switched off as it will damage the pump trying to blow empty AC.

Check to make sure the AC belt still turns the pump as it might have overheated and/or seized. Does the pump screech when the AC is turned on? If so the belt is loose and needs retensioned.

Air conditioner suddenly stops blowing cold and starts blowing heated air. Control panel indicates that it is still on air conditioner. Switching the control from vent to cold does not have any effect. ...


If you are absolutely confident the AC compressor is not kicking out on low pressure then it is the blend door actuator.

The blend door determines how much air blows through the heater core or evaporator.

The actuator can be purchased at dealer and maybe at a local part store.
