Asked by Aug 15, 2016 at 03:19 PM about the Hyundai Santa Fe

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

compressor started making that funny noise like a small air pump but it was there for a long time. finally no cold air. refilled with a can of Freon that lasted only a week to 10 days. during that time the compressor didn't kick in or out. Got to have my AC back guys. what do you think is wrong... ...compressor?
As always appreciate your great comments.
PS. also heard that Hyundai had a (finally) recall on front end alignment. any inputs on this one? Since new,My Santa Fe have had front end alignment issues...after 5 dealer visits and 4 private shops attempts to fix it ..I gave up.
Thanks again

You most probably have a leak, if the refrigerant is low enough the compressor won't kick on. Since it was making funny noises the compressor might be compromised as well. My suggestion is to have an A/C pro look it over and charge the system properly and take care of the leaks and replace parts as needed. Can't help you with the alignment issue.
