The a/c on my 2003 honda accord will all of a sudden stop blowing cold air. I already had the filter changed thinking that was the problem. The mechanic is having a hard time figuring out what is wrong...
have you tried refilling the aircon gas ?
It goes empty after a while.
The reason for cold then not cold is because it is a system that works in reverse of your radiator.
The gas cycle through the system. goes through the radiator of the the aircon system (not the same as the one for the engine). there is extracts the heat out of the air. the air is now cold and pushed into the car.
the warm aircon gas the made cold further along the system but the dont have enough in the system.
imagine athletic ruynning around a track. all 20 are bunched up together. there is w spot light in the centre of the infield shining on you.
the track is your aircon system.
the spot light the air coming into your car.
You are the car
The athletes are the aircon gas.
When they run between you and the light the air is cooled off and you are getting cold air.
now of goes the air (athletes) around the system and till they come along again you get hot air.
Now fill up the aircon system (put more runner on the track and voila, less light reached you cos there is more gas in the system.
However if you refill it and after a day or even just a week it the same again you have a leak in your system and will need to have it looked at by someone specializing in car aircon repairs.
