AC system to my 2003 Kia Spectra
Hope I picked the right trim. I know it is a 2003, 4 door, regular sedan looking car. Today my kia spectra decided to start blowing hot air when I turned on the ac. Does anyone know where I can check the freon or what else could be wrong? I really need to try to do this myself. I cannot afford a mechanic right now.
I recommend that you have your system diagnosed and serviced by an A/C professional for your kia [url=http://www.thepartsbin.com/brands/spectra.html ]spectra[/url], it maybe that it simply needs to have the freon freshened up or I would think worst case would be a complete flush and replacement of the orifice filter cartridge.
sounds like you have a leak in your AC system,onley way to tell is to take it to a shop and have them vacume it down and see if it holds vacume,if it holds a vac you have no leak,if it looses vac you have a leak.if it has a leak could just be a line seal bad,this does not cost much(,we do a vac test for free)the most expensive thing is the R134A.
when you select hot too cold no change, does the the a/c comp. kick on ? if the comp kicks on its not the freon it the diverter door that switches from the heater core to a/c core is not moving check that
