The A/C is blowing hot air. The compressor comes on, the fan is turning for the A/C and a local Firestone put freon in saying it was low. The Firestone says the compressor or evaporator is bad. I have searched troubleshooting experts whom have told me that it is either the evaporator or a switch (?), not sure of name, could be bad. Because the compressor is coming on and the fan is turning and the unit blows air, hoping it is an inexpensive part. Could you advise, Thanks.


Could be pressure switch. When the guy put 134a in...find out what the pressure readings were on the suction line to find out if the compressor was working. May as well hook up the high side as well to get both readings. If there's a decent sepa ... BMW Z3

I have a loud humming sound coming from what sounds like the front right wheel. I jacked it up and checked the wheel for play. and there is no movement. but the humming is getting worse. its not the brakes. and the cv joint seems to be ok. what else could it be? and does a bad wheel bearing always have play in the wheel? or could it just need re-packed and greased? please help. thanks, Patrick


Unfortunately you do not always get "play" in the bearing and they are unserviceable. Replace the entire unit. Here are the instructions for replacement. They bolt into place making it pretty easy to do. Soak the CV shaft which pertrudes from the hub ... 2003 Chevrolet Impala

I have a 2001 Silhouette. I have a noise in the front end that sounds like a wheel bearing going bad. It increases in loudness with speed. At low speed it can't be heard at all but at around 50 to 60 it becomes audible and at around 80 it's very irritating. If I make a right turn it stops and is audible either straight ahead or in a left turn. I can't tell which side the noise is coming from as I sit in the car. Do you think it could be something other than a wheel bearing?


I have a 2002 Olds van and it also makes a noise under the front driver wheel well. Mine was mostly when I hit potholes or large dips causing the shocks to compress. The problem is a metal to metal contact between a bushing lip and the suspension. ... 2002 Oldsmobile Silhouette

Audi a3 1.9 tdi 2006 had the full clutch replaced has there was a loud metal on metal chaffing noise , was told it could be the thrust bearing on the clutch , still the problem is there after i have been driving around just wondered if any-body has come across this before?

I have 2002 Chevy s10 with ac issues. All blend doors and actuators work properly. Clutch engages on compressor. Blows warm air when ac is on.

A/c compressor clutch will not engage, full charge of freon and i can hear the relay clicking calling for the compressor to kick on. Could it be a fuse in the fuse block under the hood or could it be that the clutch is frozen up. Just hoping the compressor is not bad, maybe just maybe.


I hope as well that the compressor is not bad just for reasons you'r most likely aware of, the COST. The main thing you might want to do is check to see if power is running to the compressor directly with a multimeter. If there is power then most lik ... GMC Sierra 1500

A/C problems I have a honda accord 2003 4 cyl. My a/c comes on cools well and goes off after sometime and will not come up for a long time and later comes up again. I started experiencing this problem when I changed by engine serpentine beltthat drves the compressor and later found out it was the wrong (small) size. I have checked the compressor, which is ok and the clutch seems not to re-engage until a long period. Could the clutch field coil be the problem or the thermostat is not cutting off


There is not a site glass on your Accord, nor is there a freon canister. There isn't even any freon. It is R134A. Freon was discontinued a few yrs ago because it hams the environment. It doesn't sound like the clutch field coil. It either works or it ... 2003 Honda Accord

I am havin problem with my clutch... i have to push the clutch pedal almost to the floor, before changing the gear. the master cylinder is full of fluid. could the problem come from the pilot bearing in the assembly. i recently had the clutch done a year ago. the clutch is one year old and still has the pull and is in good shape. would i need to repalce the whole assebly while i take the pilot bearing out????


Pilot bearing is in the end of the crankshaft. (keeps the trans input shaft from whiping) You are likely referring to the throwout bearing. If you have one that is integral with the slave cylinder, then it needs to be removed by taking the transmissi ... 1988 Jeep Cherokee

My Sienna has a very loud sqeel coming from the clutch of the A/C compressor. I want to know if there is anything I can do to fix it with out replacing it.

My air compressor pulley appears to be squelling. I took off the belt and checked the pulleys ability to spin freely and it was rough though spun with some drag. I guess this means that the pulley bearings are bad or need oil? Is there a place to check oil and /or how? can you change a u4692 clutch pulley bearing assembly without ever having to open the refrigerant system up? How hard is this? and where do I find a break down/schamatic drawing to do this? Do I have to change the compressor?


You cannot lubricate this bearing, you will need to replace it. You can change this part without opening the refrigerant system. Remove the center bolt on the clutch, and it slides off. There are shim washers involved but they usually stay in the clu ... 1997 Dodge Dakota

My 2002 Chevy Tracker LT (V6 2.5L) emits a loud squeal when the A/C is turned on. The squeal fades or sometimes goes away, then comes back intermittantly when the A/C is on. A/C still cools. Belts are good and not squealing. I think it's the compressor clutch. Should I replace the whole compressor or just the clutch?

2005 Sprinter with 140,000 mile has a whining noise coming from the surpitine belt. My tech replaced the tentioner and idler pullys, and fan clutch and belt, noise is still there. The noise comes and go's its not all the time. If you remove the belt the noise its gone. It is coming from the belt. Could the alternator be bad. Or other ideas. Know engine lights are on. The noise seems to come from the alternator side.


If you have a whining noise the first thing I woud check is the alternator. If that is good then I would then check the water pump. I have seen this before but it is hard to point the problem without having the car in front of me.\015\012 ... Dodge Sprinter

I have a 2003 Mercury Grand Marquis LS and the air conditioner stopped blowing from the vents and was only blowing out of defrost from my dash. It was cold until it ran out of freeon. Took it to get checked out from Firestone and they said my compressor is going bad, (because its loud). Because this car runs on 1 belt they told me to replace the compressor because when the compressor goes out, the belt could brake and the engine will no longer run. Does this sound right to anyone??
