Troubleshooting Suggestions For Automotive Air Conditioning

There are some basic and fast automobile air conditioning fixing pointers that may enable you to get a few more days out of the system prior to getting it in to be examined by a mechanic or automobile cooling technician. The following are basic, simple repair pointers that can help you address the problem or at least have the ability to better describe the situation to the mechanic.

The condenser is at the front of the vehicle, under the hood near the radiator. In older models of cars, there will be a noticeable fan, make sure the blades are turning when the automobile air conditioning dial or switch is in the "on" position. If the vehicle is a recent model, there will not be blades noticeable, however, you ought to have the ability to hear the electric motor of the fan engage. If the fan is not turning, the heat is not being eliminated from the Freon, which in turn is not permitting the evaporator core in the dash to cool down the air since the Freon is hot. Occasionally, a blown fuse can be changed or a wire should be reconnected to the fan to remedy the problem. The fuse diagram in the owner's handbook will indicate which fuse controls the condenser fan motor.

If the engine of the automobile is running too hot either because of an emissions system or exhaust problem, the system will not allow the Freon to cool substantially enough to cool the air in the passenger area of the automobile. A lot of engines have their own cooling fan; make sure that it is running. In addition, make sure that there plenty of coolant in the cars reservoir to guarantee correct engine temperatures.

Only a trained expert ought to work with the automobile air conditioning system as Freon is hazardous. If the pressure or levels of Freon drop in the vehicle, the cooling capability of the system is dramatically decreased. Have the automobile tested by a garage that has air conditioning repair work accreditation to check this problem. If you think there could be a small leak in the system, get a can of dye, readily available in the automobile air conditioning area of the auto parts shop, and add it to the system using the instructions on the can. You can then check for leaks in the hoses along the cooling system. Huge leaks will be obvious by the staining or discoloration along the hose or tubing.Air Conditioning Service Phoenix AZ\nDay & Night Air
