Hi, is the AC compressor coming on?
The ac compressor is driven by the belt. It's on the right side of your engine. It's in the bottom right of the picture I attached. In the middle of the compressor pulley is a clutch. When you turn the AC on, you should hear the clutch click and start spinning with the pulley. It not possible for me to give you a cost yet, we don't know why the AC is not working without running some tests. I'd be glad to walk you through them but you will need a few tools for me to do that. The first move is to see if that compressor clutch is coming on or not when you turn the AC on.
*It is not possible. Sorry about the typo.
It can last days. I'll be online most of this morning, I can get back to you later this afternoon. This thread can last days, it depends how long it takes us to figure out the problem and when both of us are online to respond.
Yes, I get a notification every time you respond to this. So if the compressor doesn't come on, You'll need t find one of the service ports, take the plastic cap off and push the valve core in for a second like you're letting air out of a tire to see if there's any refrigerant in the system. I think this is one of them in the picture half cut off on the line on the left.
I didn't ask for any money...is the compressor staying on constantly when the AC is on or cycling on and off?
Ok, there's 2 lines going to the evaporator in your firewall. Is the thicker line ice cold?
It's ok, the owner's manual won't help regarding this issue but you could get one from a dealer. Those lines in the picture I sent go towards the firewall. I need to know if the thicker one is ice cold. If it is, we might be looking at a blend door issue. The blend door is operated by a cable on your vehicle.
