if the ac blowing same speed and not cold then

1) you have a leak in your system
2) compressor not engaging properly
3) god alone knows what else

Go by a reputable ac man to get it serviced....remember do not top up your ac as it is merely putting a plaster on the wound. get it fixed the 1st time

call ravi 736-8971 located in the bamboo

having an issue with my 1nze fe 2002 fielder. the AC works but when it is on the compressor is extremely noisy and idles rough. the ac guy i checked said the compressor is "filing" not sure what he meant but can anyone tell me a possible cause for the noise? it sounds like a rattle and when the car is running whines which increases with the engine rpm, but the clutch still cycles on an off as normal. i also notice my dash lights flicker when it is on but is normal while im driving.

most places spray degreaser all over and dont cover alternator, compressor etc. most of these function with lubricant in the bearings...degreaser cuts the greese and the parts make noise...

Who would you guys recommend as the best AC tech?

Friend of mine has a Panasonic AC and he needs a AC tech to fix this.

Guys, I have a 2012 Hyundai Tucson. At four years I had to change the evaporator. The AC cold now, but when I start it takes a five minutes or so for the AC to start to blow cold and if idling it gets warm. Any ideas?

Two thing, clean your condenser in your car. Usually a coil cleaner works fine, its not that expensive. Just spray on and hose off.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r_em9lm69HQ follow this.

also look at your ac pressures, Might need a small top up. Yeh thats about it. Change your cabin filters and thats about it.

to Do a good ac upgrade is to install a aux fan on the front of the condenser. This usually helps with ac in the hot sun, in traffic and idling. Buy a universal fan and a relay. simple simple. 200$ job.
