Hot air blowing from AC

My AC is blowing hot air. I think I need to add freon. Can you tell me how to do this on a 2000 Olds Alero?

Yes, so as not to be repetitive (as others have had the same problem), here's a simple article that percisely explains the possible causes of your AC not cooling:
http://yourhandymanzone.com/Your_Handyman_Zone_How_To_Pages_Home_Improvement_Zone_Cooling_Ventilation_Systems_Central_Air_Conditioning_Does_Not_Cool.htm

Also, if it turns out to be a need for a Freon recharge, how will you get the Freon? Freon is not sold to the general public. Like it or not, Freon (the refrigerant used for AC's) is highly controlled, as it is supposed to be sold only to licensed AC technicians.

If you feel you need a technician, don't get ripped off with a quote fee, by the way; take advantage of the above link towards the end for four free quotes from technicians if you find yourself needing to get one. (You don't want to needlessly be charged for just someone's coming over only--it could cost a lot for no substantive action.)

Good luck!

My 2000 Chevy Tahoe front ac dosnt work but rearworks blows hot air


Sounds as if you have more than one problem. If the rear is blowing hot then the AC is not working. The front should also blow hot if the front fan motor is functioning.Youi need to have the system pressures tested for proper freon levels and have the front blower motor system tested if it is not working

My gmc yukon 2000 slt rear ac blows hot air when i have ac . on and the front works fine .


I have a 2000 GMC Savana Van SLT with front and rear AC/Heat. My front would blow hot while the rear blew cold with AC on. It turned out to be low on Freon. It's hard to know if you have the right amount of freon installed because pressures vary depending on the ambient temperatures. So the best way is to remove all the freon then reinstall the recommended amount as listed on the evaporator housing near the firewall. This worked fine for me... works like new after installing the correct amount of freon.

The ac is blowing hot air the freon charge is good but the ac still blows hot air whats the problem with my 2000 chevy silverado?


Is the compressor kicking on? If not and the pressure is in the normal range then I would say that the low pressure switch is stuck. It is located on the canister right beside of where you hook up the freon. Unplug it and cross out the plug and see if it starts then.

My sisters olds alero is overheating. What is the


Take a heater hose off and start it up, it should push it out, a lot, like 10psi pressure. Is the cooling system clean? not rusty?Does the heater blow hot air when the engine is hot, if so thats good. when the cooling fan comes on, is the air coming through the radiator hot...it should be. if not, the radiator may be stopped up. if the top and lower hoses are hot, but the air coming through the radiator is cool, the radiator is plugged, and will need to be taken apart and cleaned by a radiator shop, or better yet, replaced.

Could be several things. The fuse relay to the AC compressor could be bad. The system may need to be recharged due to lack of refrigerant the compressor will not work unless it has enough.

Cant find the low pressure port to charge a/c on 2000 olds alero


It should be near the compressor on the low side line. It is a huge pain to get to. Feel along the line, and you should come to the fitting.
