Could be sounds like you got moisture in the system also colul de ditry filter or low on freon. the Best want to know for sure is to hook up gauges and see what system pressure is, if the needles are bouncing it means you got moisture in it.

Why does the air conditioning in my 2003 GMC Yukon blow cold in the front but HOT in the back like the heat is on. It blows good just hot air. I have read that it could be the heater valve not closing...Is...


To check the rear expansion valve, see if the a/c lines are different temperatures. One line to the rear evaporator should be hot and the other cold if it is working.
Try to recailbrate the blend door actuator. Remove the HVAC module fuse. Wait at least 15 seconds. Replace it, turn the key on and wait 40 seconds

How do I change expansion valve on 02 astro


Well you have to evacuate the freon into a storage machine, then take the inside trim panel off to access the ac unit. The expansion valve should be attached with pipe fittings. After the part is replaced a vacuum is pulled and then freon added back.

Hot air from a/c - a/c is charged but no cold air is coming out


Go under the hood see if the low side gets cold while the AC is on. If the lines are getting cold but the blower do not put out cold air then that means the heater and the ac is mixing somehow. Find out why, if you can't find the problem why the heater is mixing then just put a temporary cut off valve along the heater hose,, those valve are availabe at auto parts. You can just open it back up when winter comes again. Second diagnose, make sure it is not overcharged. The low side pressure should be around 35 psi or so. Make sure the lines are not restricted or blocked. Check the expansion valve. one side of the hose to the expansion valve should be hot, then the other side is cold. This is on the high side (smaller tubes). Comment me again so we can go further if we need to.

Hey I am haveing a problem with My 2500HD ac system. I have changed The Condensor, evaporator, and the Compressor. I have charged it to the correct levels. It blows cool air, but it doesn't get cold....


Did you change the Receiver/ Drier and the Orfice Tube/ Expansion Valve? The Receiver/ Drier takes moisture out of the system and the Orfice Tube/ Expansion Valve controls the Hot/ Cold air. If that is bad it may not be opening or closing fully which would not let your A/C get as cool as it supposed to.

BMW 325, hard to start in hot weather.


before you try to start her again in hot weather, open your fuel filler cap, listen for any pressure release, close the cap, and try to start, if this works,then its just heat expansion in the fuel tank, replace the filler cap if this is the case

97 suburban rear a/c doesnt get cold but front works great


the expansion valve is in the rear ac housing and it is bolted directly to the rear evaporator. it is an actual expansion valve and not an orifice tube. the part is about $45. the interior on the passenger side has to come out along with the entire rear ac sytem.

Ac compressor does not turn on when car has been sitting & it's hot outside. Works fine in the morning.


either the freon charge is about 1/3 low, or the expansion valve needs to be replaced. Freon is getting into the evaporator, but not in great enough volume to cool the air unless it is coming in cool to start with. check your ac charge, and if it is full, then have it emptied, change out the expansion valve, and recharge it
