Q: Air conditioner not blowing cold

asked by on February 03, 2016

My air conditioner is not blowing cold. I think I need some refrigerant.

The a/c on these vehicles have a few different things that can render the AC inoperative. The most common is the compressor failure. The compressor failure would require multiple parts to be replaced if it fails. I recommend you have a mechanic, like one from YourMechanic, inspect your vehicle’s AC system for you to see if a compressor failed or a less common failure has happened.
