Why does A/C not work when it's hot outside?
Not much detail beyond this... A/C only blows cold air below 78 degrees or so. Above that, it only blows out hot air.
That is not normal, you may need to get the A/C looked at by an authorized dealer. Mine blows very cold, no matter how hot outside it is.
Yeah, your system is low on Freon (R134a). Find the leak, replace the part/seal, evacuate and recharge - good as new. FYI: you should see an air temp of 32 to 40 F at the center register, all other vents closed, engine at 2000 RPM and controls set to MAX AC - High speed. You could just add freon until you get it looked at but I don't recommend fooling with a substance under high pressure that can injure an untrained person so easily. Be sure to check your cooling system for good measure too - they're related to each other.
Hi,can anybody gave me a tips regarding this problem, my aircon doesnt work, when i climb the road, a bit hill type road, that the only problem,i dont know what happen.thanks
Year? Make? Model? If you are referring o the AC compressor disengaging or the system going warm when climbing a hill: this may be normal operation because the computer will shut off the AC Compressor in a High Demand situation. Also, In many cases, the AC / Heater controls are vacuum operated and a leak in the system or failure of a check valve can cause this concern.
