Question about 2001 Chevrolet Malibu

1 Answer

2001 Chev Mailbu air conditioner freezes up and fan strength lessens.

On hot days a/c works ok at first, cold and lots of fan strength but after 0-45 min fan losses strength and cold lessens. I also see water vapor coming out of vents. Turn a/c off for 30 min, turn it back on and a/c is cold again. What's up and what's the fix. I just had the freon charged at the dealer so thats not it.

Look under the hood and if the A/C is blowing cold and there is ice forming on any of the lines (especially the high side) there is a clog in the system somewhere.  The cheapest place to start is putting in a new expansion valve a/k/a orifice tube.  Freezing up is usually a result of a clog somewhere in the system.

In a 1978 Chevrolet Impala? The category you posted is home air conditioners.

Sounds like the fan has failed.

Heat comes from the radiator via the heater core and the air circulation fan. The radiator must be full of coolant.

Cold air comes from the air conditioner compressor via a clutch drive from the serpentine belt, sometimes a separate belt. Cold air comes from the evaporator element and the air is also forced by the air circulation fan.

First thing to do is find the fan body in the bulkhead and tap the back with the handle of a hammer. Sometimes the brushes stick. Then check the fuses.

check to see if your cooling fans are working because when they dont work, your air will blow nice and cold when driving but will be hot air when stopped in traffic.

Air Conditioner will not blow cold air (only slightly cool air) but air compressor is working. What can be wrong? Fan speed works fine.


chances are it needs regasing/presureising,unless you use a/c for about 15 mins a day(on average) a/c gas needs re charging every 4/5 years.

Air conditioner problem 2001 Dodge Pickup


Hello, It sounds like your hot/cold blend door actuator is either hanging up at times or it's loosing it's calibration range because it's starting to go bad. The ticking noise is most likely the actuator trying to close off the hot air port but is unable to stay closed allowing hot air to mix with the cold. If it's just a weak blend door actuator, it will act up more when the air is on full because it has more resistance due to air flow. If possible try to see if the times it acts up decreases when you start the A/C with low fan speed.
