What is the pressure when the compressor running? should be between 25-35 PSI no more then that cause it wont get cold and might even say low on freon.

Why isnt the air conditioning working?


could be several reasons. could be a fuse, a bad belt, no Freon, or a loose wire on the compressor or a leaking Freon hose. IF you hear the compressor kick on when you turn on the ac, but have no cold air, don't continue to run it because the compressor uses Freon as a lubricant also. Take it to an ac shop.

A/c wont kick on


freon is probably low.. once freon level is to low the ac will not run to avoid damaging the ac compressor. you can try to add your own but it never works as well as having a recycle /recovery machine take care of it for as it will remove any air built up in the system..

Cadillac seville w/ 4.6 motor; air conditioning codes kick on when hot.


as I have not seen this problem as you described I have worked on a caddy ac unit before that worked for little while and shut off replaced a few parts but when all was said and done tunrs out it had a small hole in condenser in front of car grille and some of freon leaked out even the new stuff I added


that's why it worked for a while as it took several days for freon to leak out could not have found leak if not for a freon detector I had borrowed from a friend it was that small ! dye did not work

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.

A/C BLOWS WARM 98 RANGER


You need to check the freon level and if that is good check the compressor. If you have no pressure on the low side, when I say pressure on low side I mean vacuum, then most likely the compressor is bad or you have a leak someplace. You can get a freon fill kit at Walmart, Target, Auto Zone and most any auto parts stores. These kits comes with a gauge and connection hose. Typically if the freon is low the compressor won't activate. Connect the fill hose to the low Side of your AC and turn the AC on to Maximum with the engine running. If its a low freon problem the compressor will start to kick in as the pressure increases. Make sure you don't overfill the system as this will cause a seal or line to blow. Being a 1998 your vehicle should use R134A freon which is what can legally be purchased by a home mechanic. It cost about $12 to $20 a can and usually includes a leak detector additive and seal conditioner.

1986 chevy S10 has no power (12v) at fuse box on the fuse for ac clutch. checked both sides of fuse to ground 00v. ac/heater fuse 12v both sides (fan) works fine


hello, check all fuses, and relays, make sure wires to ac is not broke or has been pinched, sometimes you can run hot wire from battery, to compressor, touch hot side of plug in on comp wire see if it will kick on, if so sounds like a short, if compressor dont kick on with hot wire run to it, tap the out side of comp clutch and see if it kicks on, these compressors will not kick on any way if they are low on freon, once freon is full it should work.

2004 Chevolet Silverado blows hot air and snowflake button blinks when pressed


Blinking or chattering of the compressor clutch usually indicates low "freon" charge.

96 Honda Accord LX 4 cyl - ac goes on/off every 15 seconds


when the compressor cycles fast that usually means that its low on freon.use approved gauges to get good pressure readings.

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.
