    thanks for giving me this information... we checked for a leak like you told us and there were none but we were able to correct the problem... which was that the gauge did not read properly so there was too much recharge in the ac causing the compressor to kick off. when the recharge was released the ac and comprssor began to work again... and again much thanks for your help!!!!!

Your husband's charge leaked out somewhere. your car has a leak. poss. one of the lines. get black light and gogles to detect leak. nissan pumps die into the system in factory. in case of a leak the die pushes out and you can see it with the black light and the goggles. it will show fluorescent green where the leak is. the light and goggles can be purchased at your local autoparts store.

2000 pontiac grand prix ac problem


If the compressor is working, a mechanic would check the low and high gauge pressure.
The freon has to flow thru the system to work, and the cooling fan draws air thru the condenser to get rid of the heat from inside the car.
If the ac clutch is working but the gauges show equal pressure, the compressor may be faulty.

Air or heat only blows on high and now ac will blow cold for a while then hot air for a long time. recharged ac but no better


The reason it only blows on high is the blower resister bad..As far as the a/c when it blows hot is the compressor still lock in..If not it could be a bad connection to the compresser or a bad a/c clutch

A/C stopped working and blowing hot air. Is there a fuse to check?


In almost every case, when hot air blows while AC is turned on, it's an indication the system is low on refrigerant. This could be due to a leak in the system. There are do-it-yourself kits sold at most auto parts stores or a qualified service station can recharge your system (they have to check for leaks prior to recharging the system).

If you can hear the compressor kicking on and are still getting hot air, check coolant level. If coolant level is good and compressor is kicking on, you may need to change out your thermostat.

AC blowing warm


Is it that hot in Sedona. I live in Tucson and thats hot. Have your freon recharged. You can buy the refrigerant at Checker or AutoZone. How do you like our Governor. She really made the national news.

AC blows hot air when i stop at an intersection or slow down.


Try cleaning the condenser located in front of the radiator , with either a garden hose or compressed air. If this doesn't cure the problem then have your a/c system checked for leaks and recharged.

Ac blow hot air.has been recharged


First you need to check if the compressor is actually kicking in when started and you can do that by looking at it and you will see if it is working or not. If not working you ned to check the folowing : 1- AC compressor is getting electric , if not check the relay for the AS compressor. 2- Check if the AC compressor's clutch is kicking in (that is the part that is located on the front of the compressor , where the belt is fitted) 3- Check the compression of the AC compressor via a proffessional.

My AC in my 95 aurora blows out hot air. one side of the ac lines stays cold and the outher side stays hot


Try either having it recharged by a pro or I believe you can go to auto zone and by the ac recharge in a can. I f that doesn't work it could be the trinary switch.

PROB NEEDS 2 JUST BE RECHARGED. BUT STAY AWAY FROM THE DEALER. IT IS ALWAYS 3 TIMES MORE THAN A PRIVATE SHOP

Ac clutch


sounds like the system is either low or out of refrigerant. There is a low pressure switch in the system to shut it down in the event of freon loss. First , verify , then test for a freon leak. Once repaired, and recharged, will blow cold air again.
