Q: AC not blowing cold air.

asked by on January 13, 2016

The AC stops blowing cold air within 20 minutes of turning it on. Someone suggested a leak in my system.

It could be that there is a leak, or you may just need your refrigerant topped off. A/C is not something you can service yourself at home because it requires professional equipment. I suggest you take your vehicle to a trained mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, for an A/C performance inspection. The results of this test will inform you of the best repair for your Honda.
