Question about Chevrolet S 10

1 Answer

98 S10 a/c freezes up after extended periods of driving. Will resume blowing cold after shutting off a/c for a bit. Before it starts to affect the force of air coming out of the vents it blows very cold. I assume I have some kind of cycling switch gone bad?

No, it is a refrigerant leak somewhere in the system

The refrigerant boils off at a lower pressure and
freezes the evaporator

Need to have a shop that does A/C work, repair the leak and
evacuate & recharge

I HAVE NO DRIVERSIDE HEAT


The actuator that 'blends' cold with hot is stuck in the cold position. 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....

I have a 2003 Buick Rendezvous. The drivers side blows hot air and the passenger side blows cold air. The car has that dual zone climate control. I have no clue where to start.

My Chevy S10 will shut down, starts back up minutes later


Check if your wires are on TIGHTLY on the battery, if one loses a touch, your car will shut off. If you go over a tiny bump, or turn to one side or another, they could disconnect, causing your car to lose a + or a - cable connection. Which would very well make your car shut off. Also, check for any corrosion on the battery terminals. Good luck.

AC blows warm air at idle


your a/c fan may not be working or slow, if not then your compressor is starting to fail. you could save it by changing the freon and compressor oil, if not the you have to change it.
