If the system is properly charged and the compressor cycles on and off, the compressor may be faulty, or there is a restriction/debris in the system or a clogged orifice tube. Coing system diagnostics require special tools and gauges, and any repair requires emptying the system of refrigerant. Venting the refrigerant into the atmosphere is dangerous and illegal. I would suggest taking the car to a qualified mechanic.

Air conditioning compressor on my 98 Chevy blazer won't engage. The AC is fully charged. The compressor


the compressor isn't getting the pressure for the clutc to maintain after disengaging the short by removing paperclip. check fuse, relay, and the low/ high pressure lines. if the compreeor doesn't since the correct amount of gas charge and/ or receives it the clutch wont engage not sure about a weak compressor if it may be a contributor. will check back later short on time. I just had mine fixed 2001 chevy 4wd. it was the relay and charge.

My 2003 VW Convertble AC unit is not blowing air as cold as it used to. The AC unit is working


Most likely yes it does need to be re-charged with refrigerant gas as this gas can leak over a long period of time
Many garages can re-charge the system for you

Why ac blowing hot air


start off with the cheap possibilities and make your way threw.
I'd start off with replacing Air Charge temperature sensor, make sure your AC Hose isnt leaking anywhere, if those dont solve it then replace ur AC clutch, last chance would be replacing AC compressor. sometimes the compressor will malfunction randomly. or the AC clutch might malfunction aswell. covering these steps somewhere along the line you will have working AC again! good luck

Mazda 323 there seems to be no diffrence in air temp when i turn a/c on...the light on the ac switch comes on....


It looks like the Aircon unit needs re-charging with coolant. It'll need checking for leaks first or you'll just be pumping CFC's into the atmosphere, wrecking the ozone layer and wasting money.

My air condition is not blowing cold air


best diagnostic method is dual head gauges. balanced pressure between low and high side in the off position is aroung 90 lbs. running low pressure is 20-40 lbs and high pressure 160-200, is the compressior not coming on? does it stay on, or click on and off. either might mean the freon level is low. try unplugging the low pressure switch on the low side supply line and shorting the pigtail wires together with a paper clip. does the compressor stay on now? if so and the air is warm or cool, freon is low. if the air is cold that switch is bad. if compressor still won't come on the list of possibilities grows longer: compressor, comp fan clutch, AC relay, restriction at several places... repair shop time...

Air condition does not work. I tried to re-energize it, but no success. It didn't seem to **** in the feron.


Disconnect the negative battery for 20 seconds,then replace it back on the battery,then the ac will work,and take the freon.

Air conditioning not working 100%


You may want to have the evaporator (the AC part under the dashboard on the passenger side) cleaned. It needs to be taken out and cleaned. Normally this would solve the issue. Have the freon checked if there is a decrease. You may have it filled up and have the system checked for leaks.
