Question about 2001 Hyundai Santa Fe

1 Answer

My AC compressor is leaking. Is it possible to have that fixed, or do I need to have the whole compressor replaced? I was told this would be $800 and wondered if there was a cheaper way.

U CAN GET A REMANUFACTURED COMPRESSOR FROM YOUR LOCAL PARTS STORE FOR A 3RD OF THAT PRICE OR EVEN A GOOD MAJORITY OF JUNKYARDS WILL GIVE U A WARRANTY ON A USED ONE. JUST MAKE SURE AFTER ITS INSTALLED U GET THE SYSTEM EVACUATED BEFORE INSTALLING THE FREON

My yaris 2007 car ac stopped working before 2 months slowly , means sometimes work and some times doesnt work , and not at all . before 2 weeks i showed 2 car ac tachnicians both told to change control...


The best I can tell u is that the smell is from a leak at the evaporator or connections. I advise to get another opinion because it sounds like a lot of guesswork. if u get the work done, make sure the work comes with a warrantee! I gave all my customers warrantees for 20 years. That's part of the diagnostic business! Good Luck If u don't get a warrantee ,don't get the diagnosis or work done

Hi there my A/C is not working and someone told me that i need to take out the whole dash to fix it. Would you by any chance have a diagram on how to replace the aircon?


I personally don't listen to anyone except accredited auto air con specialists when they tell me exactly what the problem is
the only reason to remove the dash assembly is to replace the evaporator and that is rarely the problem
most likely a leak in the system( compressor seals or hole in the condenser) and an ac specialist shop can see that using yellow glasses and an ultraviolet light to see the green/ yellow dye
it is unlikely that the whole ac will need to be replaced , just the faulty bit

O4 nissan maxima is blowing hot air from AC unit, i had leak repaired. Could it be a bad Ac relay or Compressor?


what was replaced?? to fix your issue??need more info. I have 04 max my self and very common issue is the low side ac line leaking. you need to look at the front of the ac compressor if the whole thing is spinning with ac on. if the whole clutch is not turning and the pulley ONLY is, than the ac is not turning on and it could be several things. anything from low charge, to low side pressre switch issue, or major leak somewhere.

I HAVE EXHAUSTED MY SAVINGS ON TRYING TO FIX MY A/C - CAN SOMEONE IN THE SOUTHEAST MA OR RHODE ISLAND AREA HELP ME


If someone said the freon is leaking out, then you have a leak that needs to be repaired. Every connection in an AC system has a seal. AC systems work under very high pressures. When a seal goes bad, all the freon in the world will not stay in.
They sell kits with all the seals just for this purpose. I'm in AZ, so I can't help you. Plus, I'm working on the AC system in my wife's car right now. What you need is a reputable shop that can do the work for you. The whole system needs to be gone through. It will cost money to get it done correctly. And you should have a professional do it, not some shade tree mechanic. Good luck. I know what east coast summers are like.
Sorry I don't have a better answer.

Why ac blowing hot air


start off with the cheap possibilities and make your way threw.
I'd start off with replacing Air Charge temperature sensor, make sure your AC Hose isnt leaking anywhere, if those dont solve it then replace ur AC clutch, last chance would be replacing AC compressor. sometimes the compressor will malfunction randomly. or the AC clutch might malfunction aswell. covering these steps somewhere along the line you will have working AC again! good luck

2005 taurus ac problems


I would think more along the lines of the idle stepper motor or a bad vacume leak or airflow sensor or intake leak but I havn't seen the car. The A/C however does also control the idle it makes the idle higher when th A/C engages to cope with the load but if the A/C is off & yu expeirience the prob then I would sugest the A/C is not to blame. The A/C belt runs on the Idler & tensioner pully & I assume they were noisy & better to replace then have them seize & throw the belt which could cause other damage

My ac is not blowing cold in 2001 saturn sl1. I had the cooling fan replaced and it blew cold for 1 day. Then I bought a recharge kit and the pressure was to high for me to add freon. I took it to the shop...


If you can turn the compresser with your hand freely ? then you can just replace the clutch...if not, the whole compressor needs to be replaced..

As was told by an AC workshop that the AC compressor needs replacement for a Nubira 2002, the cost is Above $900, could it be correct?


You may find someone else to do it a little cheaper. Shop around. But will still be around $600-$800. Most of that is the labor. The compressor itself is around $300.

Compressors do go bad, and if the clutch goes out, you are better off getting the whole thing replaced. Make sure to check for leaks. They are bad about the evaporator core leaking.
