Why Is My Car AC Blowing Hot Air?

Why is My Car A/C Blowing Hot Air?

There may be huge gaps in time when you don’t need the Air Conditioning in your car. Especially in Washington State! When it gets hot you finally reach for that A/C button … You wait expectantly for that refreshing cold air!

If you are reading this blog you are probably not that lucky. You may be asking, "Why is my cars ac not blowing cold air??"

There are multiple things that can cause your car's A/C to stop functioning properly. It could be caused by low Refrigerant (also called Freon) or by a breakdown of the Compressor. There could also be a problem in the Electrical System or with the Cooling Fan. These are just a few examples. To find out what's going on in your A/C System you can schedule an A/C Service with us at Graham Auto Repair.


How Can We Help?

At Graham Auto Repair we have an Air Conditioning Service to diagnose your A/C concerns. I will give you a quick run-down of the steps that are performed during this service.


Here are the steps we perform during the A/C Service to diagnose your concerns:

  1. Perform Basic Function Tests
    • Perform minor testing on the A/C components
    • Scan the vehicle for codes
    • Check the A/C System Pressure
  2. Use the A/C Machine to evacuate all of the Freon (Refrigerant) from the A/C System
  3. Perform a Vacuum Test
    • If this test fails: Add dye during recharge to locate leak(s)
  4. Recharge the A/C System
  5. Perform a Pressure Test

Running through these steps will normally produce the information that we need to repair your A/C System. There are times when the A/C System failure will need more extensive diagnostics in order to find and repair your concern. When that happens our Service Advisors will get in contact with you before moving forward. They will discuss what we found and show you pictures from the Digital Inspection. Then they will be able to advise you about the best options for moving forward.
