06 AC hot, rarely cold

Asked by Jun 25, 2016 at 11:51 AM about the 2006 Honda Civic EX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

As subject states, my car AC blows hot air. Every
now and then it will blow cold air for a short period
of time (a few minutes or less), then it gets hot. It's
pushing 100s here and it's never had problems
before. The car does have 199k miles, but other
than the AC works perfect. I hoped it might be low
freon so I bought a bottle with guage and hooked it
up and its in the yellow, which I guess is borderline
too full. Again, I've owned this car for about 5 years
and have never had to mess with the freon or
anything else. I know anything about cars, but
there are 2 fans in front of the radiator. Only one
fan blows (drivers side) and the other doesn't, not
sure if it makes a difference, but my AC has been
ice cold even when that fan doesn't blow. Any
ideas?

Check the ac fan relay, 100 degrees, that fan has to run, take a garden hose and spray it through the front grill of you honda. It might be dirty. But that fan has to run
