Air Conditioining system appears to be working properly but is blowing warm air.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the coolant level? Have you checked the hoses for leaks?

Yes all correct, checked hoses, gas levels, compressor belt, and compressor, can not find an issue?

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the make/model/year of your car?

Nissan Maxima 2010 J32 series

Customer reply replied 10 months ago
Thanks eric, when we took the compressor out it was covered in sump oil. Appears to be an oil leak in the gasket right above the compressor. My mechanic said this could be causing the issue and he is cleaning everything and replacing the "gasket".
We will test the system tomorrow. Thank you.

y​es if the system leaks oil it leaks Freon too so if no Freon is in system it wont get cold so fix leak and recheck. PLEASE RATE ME

Customer reply replied 10 months ago
No the sump is leaking oil, the air conditioning system is not leaking Freon. Current diagnosis is that something is causing the computer in the car to turn off the A/C cooling sytem. Eveything checks out perfectly, then the computer just turns the cooling off? Thanks

o​nce you get the system fully charged. see if it works if not see of compressor is receiving power and ground to compressor clutch if not let me know and I will help you troubleshoot electrical ac...make sense?
