    What if it's blowing cold on the passengers side and warm on the drivers side?

  • jacketsgirl Aug 24, 2008

    If its not blowing cold on the driverside but is on the passenger side does that mean that it may need charged because its not cold enough to reach the driverside?

The other thing i can think of is either the evaporator or the condensor and for thoses you will need to take o a shop to have checked.

    the reason it would be blowing cold on the passangers side and not much out of the drivers side is because the fan is located on the passangers side so it blows the air throught it first. it may not be cooling enouph for it to reach the drivers side so by the ime it does it might be warm due to the engine heat.

Does the compressor kick in when you turn it on?(if not it could be the a/c switch or the power to it, the a/c clutch wire connection, the clutch itself, or it's low on freon) You should hear the clutch kick in when you turn the a/c on. Low freon will also cause the clutch to not kick in. Remove the low-pressure switch plug and jump it with a piece of electrical wire. If the clutch kicks in, you just need to add some freon. Put the plug back where it was after you remove the jumper wire.
Is the belt on and adjusted to the right tension? If the belt is loose it won't cool as good as it should.
Check the freon in the system with a gage. If it's low, add some to the right amount and see if it cools. If it is overcharged, it will blow hot air, too.
The heater control valve slider should be all the way to the left so hot water isn't allowed to circulate through the heater core which would also make it blow hot air out the a/c ducts.
Good luck, they can be a pain, but with careful, step by step troubleshooting it can be fixed. There is plenty of information about a/c online to help you out. Try googling in: auto ac troubleshooting tips for more info. garcuda

2000 pontiac grand prix ac problem


If the compressor is working, a mechanic would check the low and high gauge pressure.
The freon has to flow thru the system to work, and the cooling fan draws air thru the condenser to get rid of the heat from inside the car.
If the ac clutch is working but the gauges show equal pressure, the compressor may be faulty.

My A/C compressor shuts off after an hour (sometimes longer) of driving on a hot day.


I would get it checked by another mechanic shop, I suggest a complete AC service with freon, oil and dye every 5 years... The oil keep the compressor lubricated.... Also, there is always a 10-15% tolerance level in freon amount to be filled in. Auto compressor shut off is a built in safety feature that kicks in when pressure is too high in the system..... If you are in OC,Socal, let me know

My AC is having trouble. It seems to only work once out of every 50 times I have tried to run it. I checked the freon with a AC gauge I bought and followed the instructions and it said the levels were up...


Hi, first of all, you will want to verify that your compressor is kicking on. Open hood and located A/C compressor. Have a helper start the engine and and then turn on A/C to maximum with blower at full speed. See if you hear and observe the compressor kick on. The outer portion of the compressor outside the pulley is the clutch. It should make a click and begin to spin along with the pulley. If it kicks on ok, does your cooling fan at the radiator kick on also? May need to run the engine a few minutes to verify that. If so and you are reading a full charge at the low pressure port at this time, you have air in the system and it should be completely emptied and then re-filled with around 3 LBS of R134a refrigerant until you read a low pressure side of 45-50 PSI. Then you will be blowing cold air.
Please rate this answer! Thanks, Mike

The ac is blowing hot air the freon charge is good but the ac still blows hot air whats the problem with my 2000 chevy silverado?


Is the compressor kicking on? If not and the pressure is in the normal range then I would say that the low pressure switch is stuck. It is located on the canister right beside of where you hook up the freon. Unplug it and cross out the plug and see if it starts then.

Ac compressor does not turn on when car has been sitting & it's hot outside. Works fine in the morning.


either the freon charge is about 1/3 low, or the expansion valve needs to be replaced. Freon is getting into the evaporator, but not in great enough volume to cool the air unless it is coming in cool to start with. check your ac charge, and if it is full, then have it emptied, change out the expansion valve, and recharge it

A/C blowing hot air. Compressor activates and system has pressure.


Could be the expansion valve. That's what allows the temperature to actually drop in the system - the contents of the AC system are under pressure, and are at a certain temperature. When the freon goes through the expansion valve, the pressure drops suddenly and dramatically, which "flash chills" the freon, allowing the air to blow cold. If it fails, you may get lukewarm air from the AC despite everything else working. Also though, check to see whether the AC evaporator fan (underhood) is working - on some cars, if it doesn't turn on, the compressor won't be run enough to cool the air.
