Van Air Conditioning

October 16th, 2016 at 08:58 pm

Today when we left the grocery store our air conditioning was only blowing hot air. It did briefly come on and was cooling great, but then it went off again. We checked the relays as we read that could be an inexpensive fix, but they seem okay. I expect we will have our van in to get this repaired this week. We drive it everywhere and it actually still warm enough to need and want air conditioning. Although, I'm sure glad it is not July or August.

I'm hoping this is not a major repair to the tune of $500 or more. We just committed to the Europe trip, and my daughter told me she is going to do 17 credits next semester (compared to the 13 she is taking this semester), so that is going to cost more in February when it is time to pay for them.

    My husband fixed my AC a few ears ago with something called Atric Blast, or something like that. They sell it at the auto department at Walmart. I don't know how it works, but he had to hook some animated up to the car (somewhere under the hood) for maybe 15 minutes. There was some kind of tempt or pressure gage that indicate when it was "fixed". That was 3 summers ago and it is still running great. Sorry I can't tell you exactly what it is or how it works, but it was under $20 and it kept us out of the shop. Good luck!

    Sure hope it is an easy fix. How old is your van? Could there be a recall on it for this?

    Hope it's an easy fix! Sounds like it most likely would be.

    CCF - Like Butterscotch's post - we, too, used Artic Blast, to fix the a/c in 2 of our vehicles in June or July. Its still going strong.. and a fine less expensive fix. Maybe you'd like to try that before spending $$$$$ at the mechanics right now.
