Q: Air not blowing cold

asked by on

My air conditioner is not working.

A: Hi there. The "AC is not working"...

Hi there. The "AC is not working" unfortunately does not provide enough details for me to provide a specific answer. There are many components that if they fail will cause the AC to not work, such as a low refrigerant levels, a failed compressor or a faulty blower motor. I suggest that a Technician inspect the vehicle's AC system to determine which part of the AC system is keeping it from working. The components I have listed are the most common reasons an AC system will fail so I would check those first. Please keep in mind that the federal government requires all AC inspection and repair to be performed by an EPA certified technician. YourMechanic can provide such mobile servicing by an EPA certified technician if requested.
