Question about Volkswagen Polo

Open Question

I have a 2006 1.4 Polo Hatchbach. My aircon has been giving me trouble in that its sometimes takes a while to get cold and the fan does not blow when I turn the switch to "1". Then yesterday when I go into my car it suddenly does not work on "2" either. When I turn the switch to "3" or "4" it works fine. I am selling my car and I wouldlike to have the problem sorted out before I do. I previously had it serviced and I was told that I needed to replace my compressor, and that it would cost me R6 000.00. I am wary of some mechanics though as I worry that they make a reccomendation on the assumption that I do not know better and so I would like a second opinion. Please help!

Hi there. When a compressor is replaced, two things are in fact being replaced - both the compressor and the refrigerant (Freon) and if the problem is resolved as a result which of those two replaced elements caused the original problem? Well you will never know and so before the compressor is replaced you need to have you’re A/C system recharged – it’s by far the most cost effective initial thing to do. In general A/C systems loose at least 10% of their effectiveness each year through loss of refrigerant and so given the age of your car; it’s the first thing to focus on. A professional A/C centre will also be able to tell you whether your compressor is working properly after having a refrigerant recharge by the monitoring the operating pressures in the A/C system.

SOURCE: My honda civic lxi '97 got overheat last wednesday. HELP!

Some of my friends of Honda user also have the prob like you.
I was tell by other friends to change the engine oil that the brand name sort of jtX (sound something like that).

He said it really reduce the engine temperature because it have some kind of tribology technology and there was a story where his friend's car move about 4 days with the radiator fan not functional. His friend didn't know until he check his car...

I think maybe it solve a bit of your problem as precaution before your engine jam.

I have a Mazda mx6 and the aircon won''t work.


what won't work? the interior fan or is all else well except the cooling part? if the compressor does not come on, then perhaps you need to refill gas. in the very front of the car under the hood, you remove the plastic covers where the hood opener is, and you will see some pipes & a canister. on top of this canister there is a clear small round site glass, you can check there for gas if you have dye, or you can unscrew the cap over the refill nipples and depress with you finger nail, air (gas) should blow out under good pressure, not a little only. there is also a fuse you can check situated in the same place, this is for the compressor

Aircon works but blows hot air


I had the same problem (during Summer!!) - If you take the Fan/A.C/Temp Control panel off, you'll probably find the plastic bracket that the control cable mounts to, is broken. I just used 3 zip-ties to hold everything in place. 30 minutes work, & 50c parts!! No problems since.
