Air conditioner: Cold lines, but warm air


Asked by Feb 22, 2014 at 12:54 PM about the 2006 Chrysler PT Cruiser Base

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The air conditioning on my 2006 PT Cruiser is acting funny.  The line off the condenser is ice cold like it should be, but the air blowing out the vents is not cool at all.  It's blowing plenty of air, just not cold air.  What might be going on here?

Orfice tube, or expansion block needs replaced both are in same spot follow the lines to the fire wall pass side you will see a silver block w a wire connection. Expansion block. If you are not familiar w a/c this is NOT a job for you as serious personal injury can result (frostbite) suffocation from the gas in a enclosed setting. Not to mention the pag oil will make a ginormous mess.
