Q: Q: No cold air from AC

asked by on

The air conditioning is not cool.

Hi there. Most AC systems will leak small amounts of refrigerant over time and lose the ability to cool. The leakage in small amounts is expected to happen on any AC system. I suspect that this is what has happened on your AC system. I suggest having a technician check the pressures of the AC system to determine if the refrigerant is at a proper level. Checking the pressures will indicate where the leak is located, if there is one. If you need further assistance, I recommend you have a certified specialist, like one from YourMechanic, diagnose the AC problems with your vehicle and make any repairs necessary.
