Air Conditioner Not Functioning


It may still be low on freon. It can hold several cans.
High side should be around 250psi and low around 35 or 45psi at idle if system is charged.
If you raise engine speed the low can drop below 20psi and switch off the compressor if the system is low on freon.
Could be a restriction in the system, bad relay, or bad a/c compressor-clutch.

01 dodge 2500 v8. Air conditioner started out strong, blowing cold air..temporarily would start blowing warm and then back to ice cold...Noticed when stopping and turning corners a hissing noise coming...


Hi. Have your car aircon evaporator cleaned. Check also the drain hose. All water should go out of the car through the drain hose. There might be something clogging up the hose that is why water will run out the floor and that causes also the aircon to work intermittently.

Have a good one!

Air conditioner blowing hot air on 2002 monte carlo and it has freon in it


car air conditioner blowing hot air is cause by either a leak or a clogged condenser, since it has a freon in it then it might be a case of clogged condenser but this is just a contributing factor, it is possible that the leak is small that you wont even notice that the freon is not enough for the a/c to blow cold air.

Air conditioner wont work


You need to check your freon level. Go to your auto parts store and pick up a can of freon with a gauge and follow the directions on the can.

2003 Tiburon air conditioner won't blow cold air


Most likely your problem is the same as mine, which means you have a crack in your air compressor therefore no matter how full you fill the freon it will always drain (or blow) right out. Solution - get a new air compressor. Try to find one in a chop shop junk yard type place if you can do it yourself.

Alternate problem - freon can lose its charge. You can take it to just about any auto store and get the freon charged up for about $70. If that doesn't fix the problem it is likely the compressor.

I have a 1995 c280 and the air conditioner(we'll fan) just keeps popping on while I'm driving. My air is not working, meaning getting cold because I need to get it fixed so I never have it on. But it has...


If the fans are working that means the a/c system is operational. Try letting a little freon out while the a/c is on and see if the pump stays runnig. If so Shut the a/c off, drain the freon and replace with r134a and enjoy

Take it to a garage and have them evacuate the system and refill with refrigerant. you have air and non condensibles in the refrigerant system.
