Question about 1991 Toyota Corolla

91 corolla air conditioner

I charged th unit with freon and it guages in the safe zone, but it won't cool well and the compressor kickes on and off rapidly, rather than going through a cycle. What could be the problem? I have no experience in this area.

Are U sore, that U must use freon in your cooling system?
I think the system use R 134 gas for cooling, with a special climate compressor oil.

What is the noise when the air conditioner is runing sounds like a switch going on AND OFF

Its the air compressor kicking on and off. If your air is cool, its normal. If it just keeps going off and on alot, you may need to have your air conditioning charged. (freon)

2003 Tiburon air conditioner won't blow cold air

Most likely your problem is the same as mine, which means you have a crack in your air compressor therefore no matter how full you fill the freon it will always drain (or blow) right out. Solution - get a new air compressor. Try to find one in a chop shop junk yard type place if you can do it yourself.

Alternate problem - freon can lose its charge. You can take it to just about any auto store and get the freon charged up for about $70. If that doesn't fix the problem it is likely the compressor.

Freon charge needed

Go to any autoparts store or walmart, thats the cheapest, and buy a can of 134a refridgerant. Make sure it is one with a hose and guage on it. The A/C fitting is under the hood on the passenger side of the car. There is two aluminum tubes running from the cab to the front. One of them has a round cylinder shaped canister on it. That is the low pressure side. There is a plastic cap screwed on it, remove that cap. Make sure there isn't any trash in the fitting on it. Then connect the fitting from the hose on the can and couple it to the fitting. The guage will tell you how much pressure is in it.
Then start your car, turn the a/c on high. And see what the guage says. It has a color code on it. If it is low, add some until it is about in the center of safe zone. Soon as it gets into the safe zone the compressor should kick on. If it don't, Then don't add any more and get too much pressure. Unplug the wire on the canister and stick a jumper wire in the end of the plug and see if that makes it come on. If it does then the low pressure switch is bad. You will have to have it replaced. Or use it with the jumper wire. But you would have to keep checking the pressure every cpl wks or so. Or when air isnt as cold. If you dont then it will burn up your compressor. That would be expensive.

Air conditioning blowing out warm air was blowing out cold air gradually over a week it became warm

The Air-conditioning needs to be re-gassed. Take the car to an Auto Mechanic to get the Air-Conditioning re-gassed. They might also need to check it for leaks to make sure the gas stays in.

Air condition compressor won;t kick in

Most likely a loss of refrigerant ( freon ) in the system. The A/C compressor uses a low pressure switch as a SAFETY to insure it wont turn on without freon in the system. Hope this helps.
