Question about 2003 Hyundai Tiburon

1 Answer

2004 Hyundai Tiburon R134a AC works off and on, I figured low freon. Tried my autozone gauge to read presure but the quick-connect dosent appear to go on far enough and wouldnt show any pressure. I then tried another line with an open can of freon but it too didnt go on deep enough to open the feed. The AZ gauge line and fill line worked on my Honda Passport which these fittings appear to be the same? Does this system have a different fitting? I know it was on the low pressure side, (smaller valve)

How much freon needed

It doesn't take freon, it takes R134A. There should be a sticker in the engine compartment that tells the amount. but when filling low side should be somewhere between 25-45 and high side 150-300. if you are serious about charging your own system please purchase a set of manifold gauges. it is the only way to properly charge the system. Harbor freight tools has a set for $45 and big lots sells refrigerant for $6. using the pregauged cans to fill your system is a hack way to do it and can be harmful to your ac system. Properly charging the system has a direct relationship to the outside ambient temperature and you can find a R134A reference chart on google images with a simple search. Good luck and also there are some pretty good videos on youtube about using manifold gauges and recharging refrigerant.

Trying to locate ac areas on a 2004 kia sedona ..I'm sure it just needs a shot of r134a...I have the 16oz bottle with gauge...just don't know where to bleed and install

being an 04 there is a reason ur a/c isnt working. even if it is because its low on freon that means that it leaked out and the leak needs to be fixed b4 adding freon

Ac compressor cuts on off just had a new one put ,on is it because its low on refridgerant

It could be low on freon or it could be a bad low pressure switch located at or by the accumulator or
ac dryer, if you have a ready made gauge, it will have a gauge,hose and can of freon, it can be closed,
the can can be empty, you just want to make sure there is freon pressure at the low pressure switch. once confirmed and you know there is normal freon pressure, proceed by setting your ac to high,pull off the low pressure switch molex and connect a jumper wire across it, if the ac clutch stays engaged and
the car starts to cool, just replace the low pressure switch, you do not have to pull the freon out to replace just make sure the seal is lubricated with the correct pag oil. if you just had the compressor, replaced you could also have a freon leak. good luck!

I have freon, and there are no leaks and had a air compressor put in 2 years ago but my car is blowing hot air only

There are a few things that can cause this. First off, make sure that the compressor is turning on when you turn on the AC switch. With the AC on full blast, look at the engine, locate the compressor and make sure that the center hub (the clutch) is spinning, not just the pulley around it that the belt rides on.

If the clutch is not spinning, or if it cycles on and off repeatedly, then your AC compressor is not functioning properly. This could be due to a failed compressor or to a low level of freon in the system.

If the clutch is spinning, then the next thing you should check is your freon level, get a temperature-dependent basic freon gauge, (like the one I posted in the link at the bottom) hook it up, set the outside air temperature on the gauge and then it will show you the ideal freon pressure level. What most people do not know is that having too much freon in a system will cause it to blow just as warm as an under-filled system. The freon level has to be in the "sweet spot" for it to properly work.

If your freon is at the proper level and your AC clutch is on and functioning then it could possibly be the AC switch in your instrument panel, or one of a couple of different parts in the engine compartment, but 90 percent of the time the problem will be found within the bounds of what I just listed. Good luck!

I am trying to put freon in my 2004 ford taurus where do i put it and how much?

They have a bunch of do it your self cans at walmart now days, $20 for a 20 oz bottle, with gauge and hose, you just snap the hose on the low side, it is the only place it fits, and squirt it in, works great, has oil and sealant in it. I just did mine first time I ever messed with freon 134 or whatever it is, I have AC!, never had it before in this truck, No compressor when I got it, got a compressor, threw it in there, blew it up , It works!!! For $20, I am tickled. Check it out, so easy a caveman can do it.

On my 2003 Chevy Silverado, the A/C compressor won't kick on. Just blows out warm/hot air.

The ac system may need freon added,if the system is low,or out of freon,it will not allow the ac compressor to come on.

How to put freon on my 2004 kia spectra

Autozone has a 134 set-up with a gauge you can buy for about 12.00.locate the low side of your A/C which will be the larger hose and connect the quick disconnect to it turn on the A/C on max and charge until the gauge is in the green.

Ac blows hot air. in 2004 honda element ex. how do I fix or check if i need freon or what?

on a new car like that its pretty easy. just head to your local auto parts store and pick up a can of r134a that comes with the hose and gauge built on to it. instructions are insanely easy to follow. if it reads full then you may have to take it in as it could be something internal and not quite a "quick fix"
