Question about 1998 Chevrolet Blazer

1 Answer

Air Conditioning- is either COLD or HOT, nothing in the middle

Recently my Chevy Blazer either pumps out COLD COLD air when the AC is on, or HOT HOT air if it is off. It's like there is no thermostat to blend. Any ideas? I had a mechanic tell me I need a new thermometer, but I can't seem to find the part or where it goes. I know this does not refer to engine temp because my engine doesn't overheat, this is just for the AC. I'd appreciate any thoughts.

2001 Chevy blazer air conditioning blower is throwing very little air. what and how I can get it back to normal?


Is the issue there when using heat and air-con?
If so, then check the blower motor and fan switch for fault.

Check any cabin air filter if fitted for clogging.

If only an issue with hot air flow, then check the heater matrix hasn't bunged up.

If only a cold air flow, then check the air conditioning car evaporator in the cabin for signs of clogging.

Clogging can be more of an issue in pet owner's cars as pet hair readily clogs up these two components in cars fitted with no interior air cleaner element/filter.

Air conditioning not too cold ??


Hello,
google_protectAndRun("ads_core.google_render_ad", google_handleError, google_render_ad); google_protectAndRun("ads_core.google_render_ad", google_handleError, google_render_ad);
Let me explain in layman's terms how the air conditioning (AC) system works and what could be happening to your car.

Like your body, the air conditioning compressor is the heart of the AC system, and Freon is the blood. The compressor pumps Freon throughout the AC system, either the older type R12 which costs as much as gold it seems these days, or the new environmentally-friendly R134A Freon. This Freon is a gas and liquid combination that is compressed and circulated throughout the air conditioning system. The compressed Freon is pushed through the system under pressure and is passed through different sized metal and rubber hoses and a special valve called an expansion valve that cause the gas to expand and contract.

This expansion and contraction makes the Freon gas very cold. This cold gas makes its way via metal lines into the dash area of your vehicle to the evaporator core. This evaporator core is like a small radiator, except it has cold Freon circulating inside and not hot antifreeze. A small fan (the AC blower fan which you control from the control panel on the dash) sits in front of the evaporator core and blows air across this cold evaporator and then through the vents inside your vehicle.

The other objective of the air conditioning system is to remove the heat from inside the cab of the vehicle. This heat is removed by the Freon with the help of the AC condenser located at the front of the car (usually in front of the radiator). The Freon coming back from the evaporator carries the heat from the cab to the condenser via rubber and metal hoses. Just like your radiator, the condenser is lightweight aluminum with many internal winding coils.
The Freon travels through these coils, and in between these coils are small slits or fins that the Freon is forced through. The condenser will have an electric cooling fan mounted in front or behind it to push or pull air through these fins to remove the heat from the Freon. Some vehicles still use the old fashioned fan blade driven by the engine to pull air across the radiator and the condenser.
Now I know that is just a tidbit of information on how the air conditioning system works, and it is very general, but I wanted you to know what to look for to give you insight as to what might be happening with your vehicle.
A few causes of low cooling efficiency or no cooling at all at idle are:

Lack of air flow across the condenser. Make sure the electric cooling fan motor near the condenser is coming on, or in models that are equipped with a fan blade make sure this fan is turning and is turning very fast.

Low Freon levels. Freon level and pressure should be checked by your certified air conditioning mechanic.

Overheating. If the engine is running hot or overheating, it can have a noticeable negative affect on the air conditioning system. Some cars have two electric cooling fans, one for the air conditioning condenser and the other for the radiator. Make sure they are both working properly. Usually at idle on a hot day with the AC on both fans will be on.

When the vehicle is traveling at freeway speeds, the compressor is pumping the Freon throughout the system much faster and harder than at idle. There is a dramatic increase in air flow across the condenser due to 55 mph winds, and the engine is usually operating at a cooler, more efficient temperature as well, thus allowing the air conditioning system to operate efficiently.
Note: An air conditioning system that is somewhat low on Freon can still feel comfortable at freeway speeds due to the added air flow across the condenser which can overcome the ill effects of slightly low Freon. Periodic air conditioning performance checks by your mechanic are the best way to keep the system in great shape.

Hope this helps.

Goodluck

Start by flushing your coolant system and replacing your thermostat. You may later find that you have a clogged heater core.

Unable to get my 2003 chevy blazer to start. has been acting funny. the hot air has been running cold and takes the ac a long time to get cool. the engine runs hot.


get a mechanic to have a look ,water level low hence the heater is cold and ac taking a long time to cool because the fan isnt starting up when ac is turned on ,Sounds like your fan is playing up and you may have cooked the head gasket??

Nothing but hot air coming out from vents all the time.


Check the actuator motor on the inside of the car on the heater. It shifts the doors of the unit to let the heat and ac shift.
