Q: AC not blowing cold air

asked by on

My AC is not cooling. I can feel it blowing, but the air is not cold.

There are quite a few things that can go wrong with the AC. The refrigerant can leak out over time, or a bigger leak develops. It could also something electrical, such as a faulty relay, compressor clutch, pressure sensor, or AC switch. The list goes on and on. A qualified mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, can come out and diagnose the problem with your AC.
