Hi, it sounds like you have you have a leak. Bringing your car in for service for this kind of repair usually can cost several hundred dollars, 300 - 500 $. This problem is usually a leaky o-ring at one of the hose connections, so in order to find it you need to put a dye tracer in with the freon. There is possible ways that you could fix it your self. First go to your local auto parts store and pick up a can of freon with a sealer in it and give that a try, or you can go all out and get a kit that has what you will need to trace the leak, then you can replace the defective part and then re-charge the system. If you found this info help full then please click on the thumbs up button. Thanks,Bob

You're going to need someone to put a leak detection dye in system and locate your freon leak. Also have them pressure test.

Is it the old R 12 Freon or the newer 134A.? If it's the 134A you can buy the stop leak/oil/Freon at Wal Mart for about $15. I've had good luck with it in several cars. Sometimes it takes more then one app of the stop leak. I do that first before I spent $300 plus on a new A/C overhaul.

I have a 2008 Honda Civic which blows cold hair at first and then starts blowing warm air.


It sounds like you are just tossing parts on it, not diagnosing it first. Sometimes it is cheaper to pay a professional. Does the compressor stay running when it isn't cold? If so, is the return pipe, (the large 1) cold? When you replaced the freon, was it evacuated proprely, with a vacuum pump, for at least 20 minutes at -28 psi vacuum? If the compressor turns off when it gets warm, is power still going to the compressor? If it is, the magnetic coil is failing and/or the clutch gap has become excessive, not unusual on higher mileage Hondas. Your question about the fuse baffles me, why even ask, just replace it with a spare fuse.

How much freon goes in a 1991 honda civic?


Your Honda takes R12 freon, R12 freon is no longer sold, if your car has not been retro fitted to 134a freon, you will have to buy a retro fit kit, so you can install 134a freon, If it has been or after retro fitted, total freon 1.5 lbs 134a freon.

I ad this problem fixed and it cost $35. Apparently, this happens when the Freon level is low for some reason. They refilled the Freon and now I have AC on both sides. Don't forget to replace the internal filter in the glove box.

Sounds to me like you are low on freon/R22. Get that recharged and that will probably solve your problem.

Air conditioner not blowing cold air


Most probably low on freon, but check and watch your compressor make sure the clutch engages and runs and does cycle. IF it doesn't run at all most probably low freon, if it runs but cycle frequently, it is low on freon also hold the bigger of the two lines going to the compresson one should be cold and one should be hot. If not probably low on freon if everything else checks out, There are many other reason it might not blow cold but this is what your need to check first and is the most common problem

Air conditioner staying on...


Many cars use air conditioning as part of the defrost function. Cold air will clear windshield faster than hot air.
