A/C system cooling deteriorates over time

Had a similar thing happen to me, recharged the system and have not had it happen since, note that you should make sure you get a recharger with a long hose, the recharge port is low behind the radiator. It occurred on mine at the beginning of summer.

1997 Chevrolet Suburban LT. Front air is not cool however rear air is cool? Mechanic says that needs a new a/c compressor

If you have a/c in the rear then your compressor is good..If it was bad you would not have a/c in the front or the rear..I would check see if the blend door is moving from hot to cool in the front..

My air conditioner is only blowing cold air on the passenger side. Both sides blow but only passenger side is cold. My compressor also short cycles on the low pressure safety. What would cause that?? I...

Hi, the reason for this is the location of the evaporator core, its on the passenger side, a low charge will cause the side nearest to core it to cool more. Your cycling of compressor concures with this scenario. Recharge system to specifications.

What is the ambient or outside temp? A drop of 30-40 degrees is considered normal. And did you evacuate the system to remove the air? This is a must to get 100% efficiency. Another cause is too much oil/stop leak/or leak detector can affect efficiency

Cool but not cold air from my ac system

It sounds simple enough that you need to recharge your A/C unit. They can stop functioning properly after winter's end especially if they were not used. You should be able to get a recharge kit from your local auto parts store. Your Suburban should use the newer R142a refrigerant.

A/C blows hot air

Hi, the first check you will want to do is on the a/c clutch. you want to make sure of its operational value. Turn the engine on and raise the hood. make sure the a/c button and controls are on as if you wanted the air to blow cool. while the a/c is in the on position, inspect the clutch action under the hood. the clutch should click in a cycle. this engages the compressor device. it should cycle on and off in a 3 minute interval. if this compressor clutch is not working and it is not clicking, this will be the main issue. a/c clutch failure.

Now, if the clutch is working and, it is cycling on and off in a quick motion, this Will confirm a low charge state and, you will need to recharge the system with a recharge kit or you can take to the local dealership or mechanic.

Ok, if the system has a good charge and the clutch and compressor are ok, this will confirm compressor failure. if the compressor cant do its job by compressing the refrigerant in a proper manner, it will not cool properly. it will spin but, it will not cool.

You will find the problem in one or all of the areas above. i recommend checking the clutch action first then, go from there. make sure the a/c in-dash switch is working as well. this is a problem spot.

Please rate and have a great ady:)
