You need to locate the AC compressor and watch the pulley while someone turns the AC off and on to see if the clutch is engaging and actually turning the compressor.
You will have to look closely to see this because the outside pulley is always turning when the engine is on and a slim pulley between the belt-driven one should click (fairly loudly) and start doing its thing. If you don't hear any activity when the control is turned on and off, you may have a failed relay.

A/c dosen't always come on the it blows hot air. worked on the way to work would not work on the way home


Check the AC line if it is gets cold when AC is on, if it doesnt that may mean there is a problem with the compressor or out of gas due to leakage. Also check if there is an electrical connection problem.

Good luck, summer with no AC really becomes annoying.

Air cinditioning wont stay on, it switches to heat and wont shut off


What do you mean when you say it wont shut off? is it blowing hot air or do you just feel a lite flow of hot air even if you have the settings to cold?

If this is the problem that you always feel hot air at low flow and the ac goes to hot air then i would say one of two things, first if you have the selector to cold and you feel hot air then there may be a problem with the blend door, this door move to allow hot or cold air, the door may be broken or just a bad motor that controls it. keep in mind if the ac system shuts down for any reason the air then will be warm, it will be about the same temp as outside and maybe a little hotter.

this problem almost sounds like the ac compressor shuts off and then you are getting the outside air which is hot, there are many reasons for the compressor to shut off, it could be the compressor clutch heating up and disengaging , this would be due to a bad compressor clutch.

another reason is the fans are not working, the best thing to do is when the system starts to blow warm check and see if the compressor is running, start engine and look at the front of compressor, with ac off the front of it will not move, and then with ac on the front will spin, check it out and let me know, if it blows warm air and ac is not working then it may be compressor problem but if you are getting warm air and the compressor is spinning then it may be a door problem.

This is hard to check with out testing the system, so i listed a few things to check and let me know the out come. also the ac blows cold for how long before it gets hot air blowing out of the vents, good day.

I have a V70- 2000- about 2 years ago my AC lights flashed and the AC would not work, had the motor replaced. Now my AC blows cold air, never very strong but in the afternoon, when the temp outside is...


sounds like you have a leak concern if they are adding freon

however, it also sounds like a restriction in the system and/or a defective TXV

do you have pressure gauges... this is the only way to diagnose an a/c system without just throwing parts at the concern

My air is not running correct.. blowing hot air out.. what can we do to fix this problem


hi

this may be because following reasons.

1. you might have kept the temperature selection switch in heater please check it.
2.there may be leak in the AC line which might have drained the refrigirant so no cooling effect.check the line for leakage.
3.the refrigirant used may be less which doesnt give much cooling effect.
4.the cooling fan which cools the refrigirant may not working or speed is reduced which may reduces the heat transfer rate

if my answer were useful to you please vote me.

I HAVE A 1995 SATURN CAR 1.9L AND THE QUESTION IS. THE AC BLOWS BUT ITS LIKE THE HEATERS ON, AND THE COMPRESSER ENGAGES BUT DOESNT BLOW COLD AIR, I CAN SWITCH THE POSITION OF WHERE I WANT THE AIR TO COME...


Most likely the freon has leaked from the system. Replacing it is a fairly simple process, but finding and repairing the leak is expensive (labor wise). Plus, in the States, federal law prohibits non-licensed personnel from working with freon and it's descendants. Find a good AC service shop and get an estimate--you may not need that AC air as much as you thought! Good luck!

AC not working in 2007 Passat. Was told the compressor is good ad plenty of refrigerant but blows only hot air. One day it was good the next day it was not. Shawn Phipps


I had the same problem with my 2007 passat. The external ait temperature sensor measures the outside air temp and displays this on your dashboard computer. If this sensor is not working properly it can cause your ac to blow hot air. If there is a little snowflake symbol by the air temp on your display that is an indication that this sensor may be bad. Get this sensor replaced and it should fix your problem.
