A/C started blowing only cool air not cold anymore. Also, A/C max does not engage when car is in idle?

Asked by Sep 02, 2015 at 05:42 PM about the 2009 Honda Civic LX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Had my car inspected and cleaned 2 weeks ago. The people cleaning my car had the max ac running the entire time they were cleaning with the doors wide open. They put air freshener in cabin filter. When I left I noticed the ac was only blowing cool air not cold anymore. Before this happened ac would get so cold, I had to turn it down. Also, noticed that the ac max was not engaging anymore when my car was in idle. Freon pressure has been checked and is at proper level. Also, changed my cabin filter and that made no difference. Please Help!

My wife came home the other day saying the same thing the A/C was not blowing as cold as it was at one time she does travel a bit to get to work so I hooked up my gauges and the level was a little off but not that much so I cleaned the A/C condenser coil with a garden hose and nozzle it had some bugs and dirt between the fins. Once cleaned gauge reading dropped making it cold once again. Some of the bugs were really stuck on the coil had to take a brush with a long handle to clean then sprayed.

Try cleaning the coil and if that doesnt work try using the AC pro type recharge kit -you can get that at autoparts store
