a/c Can anyone give me a clue or solution to my a/c problem? When I start the car, the a/c blows cold air. This lasts for anywhere between 3minutes to 30 minutes.
Then it blows neutral air ( not hot, not cold). If I turn the car off for about 5 minutes, then it works again. My mechanic has replaced a valve, put coolant in it, and checked the pressure. He thinks there is a glitch in the computer. Anyone else with this problem? Judy
Sounds like you have a air flow problem. At a stop your fan should kick on, If it doesnt get it replaced. But before you do that when you start your car does it seem the ac keeps on kicking on and off? If thats the case then your low a freon.
Thanks. The freon is full - had it checked first and filled. I will check out the fan, but mechanic says its ok. A/C just stops working - for no reason I can associate with it. Just while I am driving - blows great cold air for a bit, then just "neutral" air. Computer problem? It's Texas and it's hot outside!
if you fix it, can you tell me what it was, I have the same problem. thank you
my moms car had the same problem (though not a kia) i fixed it by pulling of the ac temp knob an tightening up the nut behind it. it has worked great since then
verify the integrity of the evap temp sensor.
I am having the same issue. Paid a dealer to do work. They said they fixed it. 30 minutes later the car was back blowing hot air. I called them back and they said "oh that means it's the temp sensor.: I took it to a mechanic this week. This mechanic is very trusted and does awesome work. Unfortunately, he gives me a call and says that it will have to go to the dealer because he's check all sensors, the compressor, and some other things he listed and it all seems to be good. Tomorrow I will be going back to the dealer. My only fear is paying them to do work, and still not having the issue fixed! From what I'm reading this seems to be a problem on the Optima.
My 2013 Kia Sorrento has been blowing neutral air on the drivers side and cold air on the passengers side. Any suggestions on what is wrong?
