FREON ENTERING THE EVAPORATOR WILL SOUND LIKE AN AIR LEAK. THE ORIFICE CAN SOUND LIKE ITS HISSING.

HAVE A SERVICE CENTER CHECK THE ORIFICE TUBE, MAY NOT BE INSTALLED PROPERLY.

Why did the can of R134 freeze when I charged the air conditioner on my 97 Chevy Cavalier? The low side line to my air conditioner (where i hooked up the can of r134) froze as well and my air conditioner...

History?was it working before? you cant just hook up a hose and put it in. First find out why compressor wont run, If it needs compressor, it needs a drier and orifice tube, put on a vaccuum pump for 1 hr then recharged with the correct amount of r134. You need someone who knows a/c to look at it.

Loose air conditioner component may break and

The only air conditioning component I can think of which could cause the serpentine belt to break would be the compressor. If you look under the hood you can see the belt winding around several pulleys of engine parts. The air condition compressor is the part which has two hoses with metal fittings and a wire harness attached to it. When the engine is on the pulley attached to the compressor should be rotating at the same speed as the other pulleys. Keep your hands, clothing and jewelry clear of all moving engine parts. If it is moving at the correct speed it is good, if it is not moving correctly it will cause the belt to slip creating friction until the belt breaks. Once the belt breaks the engine cooling, power steering and battery charging will stop, which will quickly cause the engine to stop working. This could cause engine damage, but it will defiantly strand you with a broken vehicle. If the pulley is working and the air conditioner is working, do not worry about it, but you may want to check the belt with the engine off for cracks or damage. If the belt is slipping and the air condition is not working, the vehicle will need a new compressor, coolant, and possibly a dryer. This could set you back about three hundred dollars. If you do not want to fix the air conditioning and the belt is not slipping run the vehicle as usual if the belt is good. If you do not want to fix the air conditioning and the belt is slipping you may be able to bypass the compressor and use a smaller belt.

2000 Chevy Cavalier making a noise when air is shut off

This problem sounds like the aircompressor pully, the bearing is shot.
With the engine running and the air conditioner off there is a grinding noise, look at the compressor pully, does it wobble? Then turn on the air conditioner and the noise stops, look at the compressor pully again, the wobble stops? If so that's the problem.

Driving to work this morning, all the sudden my wheel tightened up (barely moves), and right before I got to my destination there was a bad knocking sound under the hood (front right-ish). When I went...

sounds like something lock up take belt off and you should be able to turn all pulleys by hand except bottom crank pulley the one that does not turn is your problem

A/C blows hot on 1999 Chevy Cavalier

That could be the case. The other problem could be that you are losing freon for some reason. Find someone who can check the freon level for you to make sure that it is not leaking. The valve to fill the freon can get bent which allows for the gas to escape and then you run into this problem.

1999 Chevy Cavalier A/C blows hot air

More likely the recharge blew a o-ring and you have a leak. When your Cavalier was blowing hot air and a recharge fixed it that means it was low on freon which lets o-rings dry out, go back to the shop and have them leak test it. They use a pressurized dye to find the problem. If it's blowing it's not the cooling fan relay, they may have meant compressor relay but I'd have a leak test done first it's not expensive and easier that chasing unknown possibilities.

99' Chevy Tahoe Air Conditioner not working

It doesn't blow cold air? Doesn't come on at all? What's the problem? If it doesn't blow cold after a charge, it leaks. Either on the compressor or in a line or both. To start at the dealer, a compressor is about $1200. That's what they told me. I have two leaks. You can buy remanufactured compressor on ebay for under $200. Or find a good shop (polar bear around here) with reasonable prices and have them do it for something in between.

If it no air is moved at all by your climate control system, the blower motor could be fried, the switch may have gone bad or a fuse is blown perhaps. If it moves air, but not cold air, recharge it and see if it stays cold. If so, great! If not, find the leak.
