Question about 2001 Jaguar XJ8

1 Answer

After freon charge, AC went WARM

I mentioned to my dad that the AC on my 99 Jetta wasn't blowing as cold as it used to. He told me to come on over, he'd charge it up. After the charge, the AC blowers were working, but they were blowing warm air!! Ack!!! It's the middle of summer!! He tried pulling out the cabin air filter and found nothing wrong there, he vaccuumed out the cavity and that didn't help. He tried letting out some of the freon, thinking it was overcharged... didn't help. Any ideas on why this happened and what else we can try?

My ac blows warm air


You need to hook up a set of AC pressure gauges to the low side charging port and read the system pressures with the AC compressor turned on and running, it should be around 28-32 PSI. If the compressor press is correct you have some other problem like a broken air temperature control blend door inside the dash air ducting.

99 accent stopped blowing cold air


HELLO
THE 1ST THING THAT MUST BE DONE HERE IS TO HAVE THE AC SYSTEM HOOKED UP TO A SPECIAL AC PRESSURE GAUGE SET TO SEE IF THE SYSTEM IS LOW ON CHARGE DUE TO A REFRIDGERANT LEAK. THAT IS THE MOST COMMON CAUSE OF NO COOLING IN ANY CAR OR TRUCK NO MATTER THE MAKE OR MODEL

A couple of weeks ago, my tag lights went out. Wasn't the bulbs, so my dad ran a hotwire from a tail light to the tag lights to keep them on. A couple days ago, my AC stopped working. Not blowing any...


The dash lights take a feed from the tail circiut,may be a corroded connector,pinched wire somewhere.The blower problem likely not related,maybe bad blower motor or resistor.

I noticed my ac in my 2004 Corolla with 138,000 miles wasn't blowing as cold in recent months. I've never had the AC serviced in the 8 years I've owned it. So I used one of those 12 ounce self...


If this was happening to me.... I'd goto an airconditioning re-gas centre and get them to check for gas leaks. In my old commodore the Evaporator Core was leaking and causing some of the issues you have mentioned.

If the car was retro fitted with R134a this was a common problem. There was a low side pressure sensor that needs to be changed. R134a runs different pressures than the r12.. When you go down the road the condenser cools off the system and the pressure drops below the minimum pressure. You need to make sure that the system is fully charged, not just cold to the feel. Both pipes coming out of the firewall need to be the same temp. this makes sure that the evaporator is flooded.
I hope this helped. Re-post if you need more info. Have a nice day and good luck.

My ac on my 99 Chevrolet suburban not cold at stop


sounds like you have a minor vacuum leak in the system or a weak blend door motor. Your a/c is responding to engine vacuum changes.

A/c in jetta blows hot air, its been charged, compressor comes on.


you need to have it diagnosed by a professional. These are complicated systems even to a trained tech. You may be over or under charged, have a clogged expansion valve, have a leak or many other issues. This model has a rcv refrigerant control valve inside the compressor which regulates the pressure of the compressor. If you notice the compressor never shuts off like conventional auto a/c's do the only time the clutch works is when you turn it on or off. Can be complicated.
