I am asumoing that you are talking about the coldness of the air, and not he fan itself (you are getting air, but cold air). The problem is the AC compressor clutch that has gone out, and engages sporatically. unfortunately, this is not a cheap part - you can't just replace the clutch. Best to have a mechanic do it, but it can be done with some tools and patience. Hope this helps.

My lincon is bloweing nothing but hot air what could be roung

Well for the airconditioner to work you will need freon 134a.You will also have to inspect for leaks at the air conditioning hoses. If your low on freon the system wont turn on if you full of freon then a low pressure switch or high pressure switch or even the airconditioning pump maybe the solution

Hello: Check and make sure the air mix door is in the A/C position, air mix door is sometimes called the blend door. If it is a manual system follow the cable that is connected to the lever that goes from red (hot) to blue (cold) see if it moves the door when you move the lever on the control.

Aircondition system not cooling

says renault 181 ,well never heard of this but this site is limited to models and doesnt have a non classified section but if the ac isnt working then it could be anything from no gas to a fuse ,so either ask a local mechanic to have a look or be prepared to do some diagnostics yourself to post on here

Air conditioner compressor stop when the speed up more 1200 rpmin low spees work perfect.

Sounds like a low freon level.
When the compressor runs faster, it reduces the gas level on the low side and the low level sensor cuts off the compressor clutch.

Optionally you have a clogged dryer in the system and the compressor is pulling on it until it is shut off by the same sensor.

Add a can of freon and see if that clears it up. if not, you will need an airconditioning guy to trouble shoot the components to determine the exact cause (dryer??)

Intermitten AirConditioning

Sounds like there is either

1. Too much freon in there


2. Not enough freon in there.

Freon (R) being freon or low CFC equivalent.

Sounds like the system is working fine, then the condensor or compressor gets too cold and freezes up (or gets WAY too hot). when you turn the A/C off, the system has time to stabilize and return to a more 'normal' condition.

Aircondition not working....just blowing warm is working

Either you are out of coolent or the compressor is not working.

First check the fuses, then lift the hood and have a friend turn the air on. The compressor should cycle, if not take it to a mechanic. If it does cycle you are low on freon, take it to a mechanic for a system charge. Make sure they check for leaks first.
