2008 Trailblazer Air Conditioner not cooling. blows warm air for the first few miles then cools. It has been recharged.

Philip, You may have to have a good tech, check,diagnose and estimate repair. Could be a few things causing poor AC, recheck your charge level,check your fan at the condenser, make sure the condenser isn't obstructed, compressor clutch could be faulty, system could be plugged with contaminates limiting refrigerant flow.You say the system has been recharged, was it done properly, if not system could be plugged. AC system should of had system checked for leaks,evacuated, flushed, new orifice tube, then recharged with proper quantities of oil and refrigerant. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

I have ford mustang 1999 when i start my car and

there will be a cooling fan in front of the condenser ( ac unit in front of the radiator) that should be running as soon as you turn the ac on. If that is not working then the head pressures for the compressor become excessive and to save the compressor from damage it is shut of at the clutch at the pulley. When you are moving there is air flow through the condenser and so the head pressures are maintained at the correct level. Have it checked out by an accredited auto ac specialist . If you have a viscous fan hub on the engine fan the consider replacing it as it is not pulling air through the radiator when idling

Burning Oil

we check oil every other fuel fill up. on old cars, every fill up
did you run car 10,000 miles to a oil change? unstated.
1qt/3000 miles is perfectly OK.
so 10000 mles is 3.3 quarts burned and off the top of the dip stick
if you drive fast, it burns more, got a heavy foot, or load in back>?
if you had done it right, you'd have already learned YOUR engines
consumption rates, and learned to check when IT , needs checking
we do this on all engines. all machines.
all engines burn oil, the exception , a church car, new, and never driven, far, or fast or for 10000 miles to an oil change.

your mech, was right, he was thinking , you dont check oil?

I have a 1997 Chevy S10 pickup that runs hot when the air conditioner is on. Does it need a new thermastat or just a radiator flush?

A radiator flush may help but be sure the cooling fan clutch is working properly. They tend to weaken and slip excessively after a lot of miles.

Pop the hood, start the vehicle and turn the AC on. Watch the compressor, it should have a center that rotates on an off and you should hear a clicking sound. This is the compressor clutch you are looking at. If the compressor is not doing this, check the fuses for the AC. If the fuses are good, then most likely the high side sensor switch is not working, therefore the clutch never engages and the air never gets cold.

Try that and get back to me, ok?

Air conditioner

I the clutch kicks in every now and then, then the compressor is fine, it just just needs to be serviced and recharged. Don't let them try to talk you into anything they try to get you to buy a new dryer....that's a scam...just have new A/C oil flushed and replaced and then have it recharged. The window problem may be a fuse or it may be a bad window switch or even worse a bad motor in the door of that window.
