I recommend you take it in to a quality local independent repair shop so that they can evacuate the complete A/C system and check for leaks. Then their refrigerant recovery machine reinstalls the filtered refrigerant into your A/C system.

The ac in my wife's Buick Century stopped blowing. When I turn it on I hear a clicking sound near the engine.


On this model you may have developed a leak at the AC compressor and the system is low on charge, that would account for the clicking. If the system is low replace the AC compressor in stead of repairing it., it is accessed through the wheel well liner on the passenger side and from under the car. You can buy rebuilt compressors for this car on eBay for cheap, have on on my own Buick and has been on there for years.

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.

Hi , i have the compack 316i 2 door , i have a problem with the engine ( hot air ) coming into the car while driving .


If your climate control isn't set to "vent" then your blower valve (on the heater core) is stuck, and should be cleaned/replaced.

The control for the AC/Heater door isn't working. To have AC the door has to close so that the hot air is not being blown into the car. When this door is closed it allows the cool air to pass through. This is either controled by vacuum or a ele. switch

Air conditioning blowing only highest setting but HOT air


Sounds like your freon has leaked out and your heater blower resistor is burned out. Deffinitly take this to the dealer.

Heater and ac


how about some more info man. do you mean the heater fan is not blowing air? if that is the case it is easy to fix. most cases it is a fan motor or a blower motor resistor. if you are getting air flow but you can't switch it from hot to cold. it could be a blend door. that is a relativly large job. the dash would have to come out. do the coolant lines to the heater core both get hot? if not the core could be pluged. does your a/c even kick in or work. you could have many problems causing this.

Heater issue - only works when on highest setting


this is caused by the blower motor speed control resistor being defective, this part is located near the blower motor.
