The coolant used in ACs has very small molecules and no system remains tight enough to prevent loss. You probably only need to recharge it if it has not been opened. You can buy a kit with pressure gauge, coolant, connection hoses and instructions for <$25 US in auto parts stores. Make sure though that your system uses R134 coolant (especially if it is older) otherwise you may need a conversion kit to install first.

The air conditioning does not blow through front vents but through windshield vents, what is the problem?


This is a common problem on all Astro/Safari vans. The problem is a leak in the vaccum lines that control the vaccum switch responsible for changing air direction from the defrosters, dash vents, floor vents..etc.
Many of the problems that plaque the Astro/Sarfari vans and many other "Mini-Vans" is the build up of excess heat in the engine compartment. It\'s a tight place to put a V6-4.3 Vortec engine and the heat generated bounces back and cooks everything on the engine (coils, modules, sensors, wiring, and of course plastic vaccum hoses). No need to mess with your switches or anything behind the dash -- replace those thin plastic vaccum hoses to operate the vaccum switch (located just below the A/C canisters, to the right of the heater/ac blower housing) and your dash switches will magically send heated or cooled air where you want it.

03 Eclpise GT with air conditioner problems


there is a sun load and ambient temperature sensor that needs to be looked at.
there is a switch system connected so that under full throttle,the a/c is disabled to give more power.there is maybe something wrong with the override.
i would check the a/c relay as in the daytime,when hot it seems to fail.get a can of cold spray,and when the car is hot and not working,spray the relay.the cold spray can be bought at an electronics parts wholesale supplier.the temperature of the spray is -60F and it is great for finding thermal problems.
