Asked by Jul 28, 2015 at 01:53 PM about the Ford Escape

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

2010 Escape, 96K, A/C blow cool air Intermittent, I am wondering if it is electrical problem, or senser problem or else,
Observation:1. when ambient temp is cooler, A/C working fine and blowing cool air in, when ambient temp is high, only hot air was blown.

2. I could feel the A/C compressor not kick in under high ambient temp. As soon as compress started (during idol, I could tell from engine RPM changes), the cool air was blown in.

3. There was a smell when cool air starts blowing.

Any advice is welcom

I had the same problem recentlly. Check the cabin air filter first. Should be located below the glove box. If its clean check to see if your freon is low. Should be one of the two.
