A/c compresser is working fan inside is working,freon is going past sight glass, no cold air?

Hello. It sounds like a possible leak. The good thing is the a/c compressor and fan are good. It could be a small or tiny leak towards the vent system. You should go to your mechanic and let him know what is going on with the a/c system. Your mechanic can add in a dye in the a/c system. The dye will leak out if there is a leak some where and the mechanic will be able to find a leak easier if there is one. Good Luck.

02 Lancer air conditioner

The compressor must be the problem based on the price of the repair.

I have a 2006 mitsubishi lancer. The a/c works intermittently. Works the least the hotter the day gets. The presures are 25 low side & 145 high side @ idle. What are the proper pressures ? I beleive...

Those pressures are OK and within specs. I would suspect the cooling issue lies with the air temperature control blend door actuator and or the blend door sticking in the ducting due to warpage.

2003 Mitsubishi Lancer air conditioner blows hot air. It will not take Freon. Any ideas?

Your 2003 A/C refrigerant is R134A not R12, commonly called Freon.

If "will not take Freon" means that you have checked the A/C pressure and its correct, the question becomes why is the A/C not working.

A common cause is the compressor clutch not engaging. If you turn on the A/C and interior fan, the engine should slow down as it takes the load from the compressor. If this is not happening, the clutch is not engaging.

If you were simply told that your car "does not take Freon", then this is correct (see above), but lets assume that the refrigerant pressure was not actually checked. The most common fault (and now quite likely in a 2003) is the refrigerant has leaked out through pin hole corrosion. This is most commonly the condensor in front of the radiator. Any AC garage can tell in a few minutes if the pressure is correct or not.

The fix is replacing the condensor and drier cannister, vacuuming out the system (mandatory) and repressurizing. Get quotes including parts from reputable AC garages. Many are not in my experience.

2002 lancer power to compressor goes on and off

you may have low freon in a/c system, there is a low pressure switch which control the compressor

A/C unit blowing hot air when selected to cool on

Your A/C unit is low on Freon, or you have a bad pressure switch. Turn on the Air Conditioner, with the engine running, & put it on Max. Open the hood, & see if the compressor is spinning. If it is not, then you need gas. You can buy refill kits at a local Walmart. If you have a leak, it may be a wasted $30. That is what I paid for a 22 oz. can of R-134A Freon. I had a dealer regas mine & put in a dye that they can find leaks with a black light. It may be cheaper in the long run. My drier, in front of the radiator has a leak. It will cost $460. to replace it.

Does anyone know the proper levels of refrigerant that should be in the mitsubishi lancer es 04? i just replaced the a/c compressor and did the evac, now i'm about to fill

You have a lable under the hood which tells you amount of freon in the system.
Usualy lable has yellow color and it's about 1X2 in size , located on radiator support frame or the hood.

How do i change the alternator belt on my 02 mitsubishi lancer?

The alternator is held in place by two bolts.

Top and bottom bolts - 12 mill bolts.

By loosening the bolts (especially the top bolt) you will find that the alternator can be manipulated forward and backwards along its housing (guides). Once the belt has loosened you can slip it off and replace the belt as required.

To tighten the alternator belts all you need to do is push the alternator away from the front of the engine and tighten the belt as required.

Once the belt is taut tighten the 2 bolts and you are away.
