Customer Question

Pontiac 2007 torrent. Air conditioning Boeing hot air and/or cutting over to circulate outside air.

Hi Im David, how did you check the refrigerant?

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
I told out we checked the freeon. Isn't that what you mean? The meter showed red, which says don't add. Contact service. And, as I said the buttons keep switching to circulate outside air.
Customer: replied 5 months ago.
This started about the time we had the solenoid replaced. If that helps.
Expert:  david craig replied 5 months ago.

the proper way to check the refrigerant is with a manifold gauge set. those store bought cans with gauges are useless. and if its in the red, then you have too much in and some needs to be let out. until the pressures are proper there is no sense in going further. Ill be more than happy to help you with this problem when the correct pressure is in the system. that is first and foremost.

Expert:  david craig replied 5 months ago.

if the pressure is too high it will create hot air. high pressure=hot air., and it will shut down the compressor for component protection.

I noticed you said you had the solenoid replaced. which solenoid?

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
I'd have to check my repair papers. The car would die at red lights. Then wouldn't start until multiple tries in the morning. Finally died on the road after my husband had changed a part that vontrols carbon emission and reattached a hose.
Expert:  david craig replied 5 months ago.

probably a purge solenoid?

Expert:  david craig replied 5 months ago.

so the vehicle isnt running now? or have you had that problem taken care of and now have the ac problem?

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
We had that taken care of. Then the air conditioning got much worse.
Expert:  david craig replied 5 months ago.

Ok. well what you need to do is to have the refrigerant at the proper pressures. if you want to use the gauge that you said was in the red, then first of all, you will need to let some refrigerant out. I highly recommend having a trained mechanic do this unless you have an evacuation machine. thanks

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
Ok. We will try that.
Expert:  david craig replied 5 months ago.
