Air conditioner help - 60K miles on my 2003 s10 pu and the air conditioner will just quit blowing cold air (the fan is working) sometimes and then will go back to blowing cold. When looking at the hoses, there is water that is condensing ~ can anyone tell me what it is?

    I have the same problem with my 2003. I can hear the fan blowing, but no air reaches the vents. I suspect a vaccuum motor to one of the doors.

    I have an 03 S 10 with 50K miles and about the same problem. Today,
    however it wasn't blowing very cold and it had been sitting for about 5
    hours. I took it in an they told me I need a new a/c system for about
    $1100. Doesn't seem right for 50K miles even if I am in Arizona.

Possible solution for susuns: turns out my problem was an improper freon charge. If your problem is the same as mine your a/c cools very well, but stops blowing air after about 20 minutes. If so, your evaporator core is freezing over and the ice is blocking air flow. Also after parking the truck water will continue to drip from the truck for a long time. To test this theory next time it occurs, switch the selector to vent and the fan to high. You should notice the air flow return within 5-10 minutes or less, however the air will still be quite cold due to the ice formed on the core. If all this fits your situation, take your truck to an experienced technician and have the freon pressures checked. My system needed to be charged a little on the high side to prevent the freezing up.
Hope this helps, capn0623

Suburban overheating and air conditioner blowing hot


If you have a viscous fan hub have it replaced as it is not working. The problem you have is that the engine is not driving the fan to draw air through the radiator when idling so the engine overheats . When moving the air flow from driving cools the radiator and so the temp goes back down. If you have electric fans have the codes read to find the fault or check why the electric fans are not working.

2003 pt cruiser overheating


It sounds like both problems are related. Possible that you have an intermitent problem with the cooling fan on the radiator? When it overheats are you in town at slow speeds or out on the road moving above 50?

Air conditioner, fuel gauge, and temp gauge all stopped working at the same time


Three possibilities;
All related to blown fuses,

1- Fuse blown in the engine compartment LH.
2- Fuse blown in the cabin forward LH below the dashboard (below your legs left hand).
3- Fuse blown in the harness (wire bundles) below the dashboard very easy to reach with your hands “just look underneath steering wheel ".

U said " The air conditioner blows, but the air is not cold.
" Yes only the fan working which might receiving power independent all from those other mentioned things.
If all fuses OK. Then look for broken wires.

1998 S10 heat wont work sometimes


When you say the heat doesn't work are you meaning the fan doesn't blow out hot air or just doesn't blow out any air? if it blows cold air sometimes when you have the heat on then it could be poor circulation through your radiator or a weak water pump. make sure your radiator is clean on the inside, not too corroded or nasty inside. You can buy a radiator flush thing from wal-mart or any auto parts store. See if it helps.
