If you don't know you shouldn't be working on the A/C

Seriously, A/C is a very high pressure system and should not be serviced by anything other than a trained professional with proper tools and gauges

Are there some simple things that an amateur could check and fix when the ac is not going on?


Not really you have to be a licensed AC installer to remove and install refrigerant gas and check the pressure with gauges. The only thing you can do is check the fuses and that the drive belt to the compreser is not broken and is spinning the pump.

Usually is is lack of gas due to a leak. The won't gas it until they fix the leak. They test it with inert nitrogen, find the leak, suck the nitrogen out and fill with refrigerant.

When my AC stopped sending cool/cold air, I purchased a replacement AC compressor. The old pulley still rotated well, but a mechanic recommended installing a new one. I installed the new one and nee


Between 8 and 12 oz. would be the normal amount found in an AC compressor. Polymax2 auto A/C refrigerant oil is a good choice.
Polymax2 Refrigerant oil is unique. Not only does this oil provide other benefits to your vehicle's A/C system, it's even non-hygroscopic. That means it will NOTabsorb moisture. In fact, Polymax2 is formulated to repel moisture!

A.c in my 1999 alero is blowing hot air i think it need to be recharged?


FIRST CHECK USING AC GAUGE SET TO SEE IF YOU STILL HAVE REFRIGERANT IN THE SYSTEM. BECAUSE YOUR AC COMPRESSOR FUSE OR RELAY IS BAD ALSO AC HEATER CONTROL SWITCH FAULTY.YOU DONT WANT TO ADD TOO MUCH REFRIGERANT IN THE SYSTEM. WHEN YOU CHECK AC REFRIGERANT THE LOW SIDE PRESSURE SHOULD BE 32 - 40 AND HIGH SIDE PRESSURE SHOULD BE 150 - 228 PSI. WORK SAFELY WEAR SAFETY GOGGLE WHEN WORKING ON ANY KIND AC REFRIGERANT SYSTEM. REFRIGERANT CAN CAUSE BLINDNESS IF GET IN EYES. DONT INHALE R 134A REFRIGERANT CAN CAUSE UNCONSIOUS AND DEATH WORK IN WELL AIR VENTILLATION AREA.

Why is my ac blow hot air


some reasons, low on refrigerant, compressor not activating , switch not sending power to ac clutch , no power to ac switch, leak in system , plugged ort restricted refrigerant flow in system, there are to many reasons to list all, have a qualified AC repair shop diagnose your problem could range from insignificant problem to a much more serious and costly repair...

A/C will not blow in 2000 Jeep Wangler


preform and electrical check of the necessary componets, check AC fuse for blown fuse, check fan switch and fuses for power, if you have ac guages check ac refrigerant pressures, you have a pressure cycling switch that if low pressure exits in the system will not alllow the ac compressor to activate and circulate the refrigerant... it is a common practice to bypass that to install refrigerant, but you may have a leak so if you suspect a leak then add leak detector and refrigerant at the same time , look for any leaks and repair as needed... if you are unsure then have a qualified ac tech preform thses repairs...

99 cavalier A/c doesnt work. Tried recharging still doesnt work. took to a mechanic he said maybe a small leak in the a/c hose but shouldnt be a problem... well it is a problem its hot as **** and i have...


check for a leak by installing a ac charge refrigerant with leak detector dye, it is harmless and made for this exact purpose to take all the guess work out, any mechanic that told you a small leak in your AC is okay is an Idiot BOZO, an AC system has to be 100% sealed fro many reasons excluding the har to the atmosphere from the chemical refrigerant. Moisture is an AC systems worst enemy so no leaks can exist, again install leak detector and find and repair leak... be done...please rate my help, thanks...

A/c blows hot


Your car is low on refrigerant.
  1. Your system requires R-134A refrigerant which is available at most auto parts stores.
  2. You will also need a hose to connect the refrigerant to the AC system.
  3. You will need to locate the low side AC fitting (looks like a nipple)
  4. With the car running and the AC turned on high, attach the hose to the AC fitting,
  5. attach a can of refrigerant to the other end of the hose.
  6. Turn the screw on the hose to puncture the top of the refrigerant.
  7. Move the can back and forth until the refrigerant is empty.
  8. Detach the hose from the AC system.
Check to see if frost forms on the AC lines under the hood and cool air blowing from the vents inside. If the air isn't cold enough, add another can of refrigerant.
CAUTION: Do not overfill the system. If the system doesn't "**** in" the refrigerant, the compressor needs resetting (disconnect battery 5 min in GM cars and trucks)
I hope this solves your AC issue. All the best!

AC STOPPED BLOWING COLD; ONLY BLOWS ON MAX MANUAL SETTING


Your AC is low on refrigerant; The AC compressor needs a minimum amount of regrigerant to run. If and when it does run (while low on refrigerant) the air coming out of the vents will not be cold. The refrigerant you require is R-134A and is available over the counter but if you are the least bit unsure as to how to add refrigerant, taking it to a garage that does AC recharging would be your best play. If you want to try to add refrigerant on your own you will need the following, 1LB can of R-134A, an AC hose adapter to deliver the refrigerant, and preferably an AC pressure guage to ensure you are not overfilling the AC line which will damage the system.

I'm trying to add refrigerant to my 1993 Infinit J30. I got the can of sealant and coolant mix from my local parts repair store, but the refrigerant doesn't seem to be leaving the can going into the car....


Do you have the car running while you are trying to charge the system?
And, do you have the can installed on the low side line (larger line)?
Let me know.
