Your system needs checked for a leak and recharged. Over time seals ware out and other problems can lead to a leak. I would take it to a certified service person to have this done.

Why do I only have heat when the car is driving


Are you saying the air does not blow when the car is parked, or it switches from hot to cold ?
If it switches from hot to cold, it could be low on coolant, or a blend door may be faulty.

I have 2003 GMCHD 2500 and the heater is not blowing hot air, turned off the truck and started it again and it will blow hot for 5 seconds and turn to cold again. have you come across this problem before


It is running a test cycle and getting stuck. There are a couple of options. Disconnect the battery, then drive the vehicle around without using the AC for 10 min, if the AC is defaulted to come on after a battery interuption, then shut the car down then turn it on again. You are trying to get the electronic actuator to reset and resume proper function. Another option is to try this: Start the car, adjust the pax side full hot, drivers full cold, wait 30 sec then shut car down, then start car back up and reverse the settings, pax full cold, drivers full hot. In both solutions, the vent actuators are stuck at either the full open or full closed, so you are trying to get it to 'self check' and allow them to resume proper function. After two years, I simply removed them altogether since I live where it is hot an only need cold.works just fine....

My 2002 Dodge Stratus R/T has an issue with the AC. The heat works fine. When the AC is on it will blow cold air for a while but if I pull up to a redlight and idle for a few minutes, then it will start to...


Make sure your coolig fan(s) are running while the ac is on. I''m not sure how you now that you have sufficient refrigerant in the system, but I would also have that checked. Over filled systems can act that way too! Last but not least, high and low pressure switches should be checked, amd if all else fails, check the expansion valve.

1.)If your System is OVERCHARGED this Will Occure due to the EVAPERATOR FREEZING UP
2.) Also if your HVAC Control Modual is Malfunctioning this will Aslo Cause this Condition, It Controls the BLEND DOORS that OPEN for COLD or HOT AIR Look Into these Items and Also Look Into wethrt the A/C Compressor Cycles OFF when it GETS OFF this Will POINT at the HVAC CONTROLER if it Cycles Off When Set For A/C or COLD Air

1994 Previa A/C problem


Look to see that the A/C condensate drains are working. You should see water dripping out from the front & the back whilst the A/C is running. If no water; clean the drain tubes. Also, you need to be running the A/C on the RECIRC mode (the little car with an arrow doing a u-turn inside the car); if not, you are air conditioning outside air, and the unit is icing up from too much humidity. Sort of like running your fridge with the door open...
If neither of those items correct your issue, you may need to replace the A/C thermister; but, that is a very rare failure.
