98 Chev pickup air cond problem

As strange as this sounds my air cond only blows cool air early in the morning when it is cold or rainy. (Low atmospheric pressure) As the morning air warms or the weather improves I am back to warm air blowing.
No I am not medicated.

    Bought one of those do it yourself charge kits early on. Added the charge expecting to see some improvement if not a complete fix. No luck not even a marginal change

1. Have the refridgerant fluid level checked. (Could be low)

2. Have you tried putting it on recirculate? Could be a venting issue.

Other than that it's out of my league.

If the line from the rocker arm to the air duct on an 98 oldsmobile silhouette is not hooked up will that cause problems with heat , cold air when gauge is reading hot?


The hose from the valve cover to the air cleaner is just a fresh air source for the crankcase.
What you are describing is a radiator low on coolant or has air in the cooling system.

AIR CONDITIONER


Could be a list of things including low on freon, low pressure switch, relay, or the a/c clutch on the compressor.

I have a 98 blazer that in the morning blows ice cold air. After driving for awhile it will stop blowing cold and if you turn it off wait and turn ot back on it sometimes blows cold again. ANy ideas


I would replace the low pressure AC compressor cycling switch, it may be sticking, it is a fairly common problem. The switch is located in the low side of the AC system hoses or accumulator.

A/c works fine in the morning, blows out vents at 55* - 59*. later in the day, and as it gets hotter outside, a/c blows hot air. What's up?


could be slightly low on charge-or cooling fan is not working-as the temp outside goes up the ac needs to be more efficent to blow cold air--and really 55 is not that cold--depending on outside conditions should be able to blow at low to mid 40 s

2001 dodge 1500 pickup. The air conditioning


It sounds like a low charge. It could be a clogged expansion device also. It has a higher probability of being a low or contaminated charge.

Compressor will not turn off but cannot find the location of the low pressure switch to change it. blows cold but will not cycle off...


there is a thermistor switch located in evaporator case(thin black single or 2 wires) that makes the compressor cut in and out (cycle) it monitors evaporator temperature.
check head pressures with air cond charging station or gauge set and monitor pressure on high and low side (150-200kpa on low, 1500-1800kpa on high good average depending on ambient temp) if it is low on gas due to leak this can also keep compressor running longer due to evaporator temp not reaching lowest threshhold to cut compressor out

Only hot air blows out vent when switch is in cold or blue area even when ac is on


Could also be that you are out of Freon, Compress may have a leak. Try it on cold setting in the early morning if its not even cool and heats up fast then Rob is correct. ITs a damper/ temp problem which is eternal. You can tear apart you dash and check on the damper (looks like a doggie door) make sure nothing is in the way and the hinger isnt broken.....I hope you can fix it yourself..

Yukon A/C, rear blows cold, front ducts a LOT warmer.


There is only one A/C system split into 2 zones. Check the blend door actuator, it may have failed in one position or something may be jamming it. Also check the control panel in the dash, My 98 yukon did the same thing, no matter what temp you selected for the front it would blow at about 70 degrees. There is a circuit board in the control panel that gets corroded and one of the circuits controls blend door operations. Have a look.
