    i'm headed to auto parts place to fill refrigerant.

    I don't have a gauge to test for a leak.

    If it's leaking, how long will it take to detect that it is leaking?

You are possibly low on refrigerant and to verify that a gauge reading is necessary. If the readings show a low charge that would indicate a leak in the system. Without repairing the leak you wont be able to hold a charge.

In other cases, the A/C compressor ended up breaking a winding and it was rubbing on the case causing it to overheat and disengage. I would say look there if the charge is good.

Maybe your Heater Core is plugged; take the hoses that go to the heater core off the engine and (remember where they go) then flush them with the garden hose. Watching for dirt from one or the other. When the after runs clear... your done. Hook them back up and off you go.

    A dye based air conditioning leakdown test uses a colored dye to find freon leaks in your air conditioning system. Using this test, a colored dye is injected into the a/c system which will be visible under UV (ultra-violet) light at the point of a leak anywhere in the system. The test is performed under full pressure with the air conditioning system closed (sealed as if you were driving under normal conditions). Also known as: Freon Leak Test, UV Test. Ask for this in your autoshop or garage.

TROUBLE SHOOTING THE Air Condition system

Hi, when it comes to vehicle air conditioning I advise taking it to a
professional with the appropriate experience/qualification...I have heard instances of individuals being blinded by freon.
If your blower only works sometimes might be that the compressor has issues.

2009 F-150 Lariat Blower stays on all the time what should I check?

Probable cause that the blower motor continues is that the power supply is constant. The only time that the blower motor is off is when you actually turn the heater/Air conditioner switch off. The blower remains on all the time if you are only using the fan controller as this only controls blower speed.

Check to make sure that the controller is working properly. Is this a 2009 Lariat? or a 1997 F150? I have a controller for the 1997,

Where is heater motor resistor on a 2006 f 250 lariat

It is just inboard [towards the center of the truck] of the blower motor [what you referred to as the heater motor]. You have to look behind the Air Conditioning accumulator. The blower resistor is mounted with two screws and has an electrical plug connected to it.
FYI, blower motor is the correct term.

Air condition is cold but the fan is not blowing air on a 1997 gmc 1500 truck checked the fuses in truck..

the first thing i would check is the relay for the blower motor. if the relay is operating properly the blower motor or the resister may have failed. on your vehicle the blower motor and the resister are a single assembly. its behind the glove box, fairly easy to replace.

The a/c in my 2006 ford f150 lariat wont throw any cold air.The a/c pump kicks in .The line frosts up.The blower is working but it just blows hot air.The climate control seems to be switching everything...

Take a look under the dash at the heater/ac blend door(s) and cycle hot to cold on he dash heat control while asking for AC and the vehicle running.Do the doors move fully?
You may be able to manually help the door move to get cold air.

Econoline ford 1997 blower works fine but no heat

If the engine is getting warm, then you have one of 2 problems. First is a warm/cold air door motor located under the dash. Second would be a clogged heater core that would need flushed. If your motor is not getting warm then you need to replace your thermostat.

Ptake a moment and rate my answer ............Thanks

Air conditioning

Yes! You are absolutely right, sometimes when you drive on rough roads, the lines from the condenser(cold air module) may get loose and you lose your cold air. The fact that it's blowing in one part of the vehicle and not the other is a testament to that. The best advice is to get the air conditioning checked out. they do this really neat thing where they pressurize the line to find out where the leak is coming from. Hope this helped.
