What is the correct process for finding the source of an air conditioning problem? The air only blows hot air.

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Amanda J. Pierce, MBA Vivian, You can have a mechanic inject a black dye into the high side of your a/c system line. Any leaks that are detected will show the source of leaking freon. Your air compressor may have become faulty as well. If that is the case, the "orifice tube" in the system (screen) should be changed as metal shavings from a faulty compressor in the a/c system can cause damage to the new devices after installation an circulation.

Patty Streeter,  at Vivian, Take your car to an authorized dealership or ASE certified repair facility for a complete diagnosis.
