AC system to my 2003 Kia Spectra

Asked by May 02, 2010 at 08:21 PM about the 2003 Kia Spectra LS

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

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.
