No. But you need to make sure the freon in the AC is full.

Connect the Freon bottle to the low pressure port on your air conditioning compressor. Release the Freon into the compressor. The purchase of a Freon recharge kit will make the process quite simple.

What freon does the 1992 Pontiac Bonneville use in its air conditioner?

R-12 which is very dangerous. And they don't make it anymore. You need to have what freon is left in it flushed out and then get the kit to switch it over to be able to use 134A. You can get the kit and freon at walmart or pepboys or autozone or whatever local parts store you use.

Can you put anti-freeze in your AC instead of dex-cool?

Neither should go in your air conditioner! I assume you mean the radiator which has coolant, but this is not an air conditioner and will not make your air in the car blow cold. If you need coolant for the coolant system then the type of coolant depends on the make and model of the car. However, it is ALL anti-freeze. That is what DEX cool is, but Dex cool is for specific engines. In general, most engines that I have come across will take DEX. What type of car and what year is it?

Why would a car air conditioner make a clicking sound It makes it intermittenly. The compressor will cut on and off a lot and it makes a clicking sound when it's on?

It is low on freon.

Why does the temperature gauge go in the hot range only in the hottest part of summertime when the air conditioner is on The check gauge light goes off when the air conditioner is turned off?

The air conditioner will create extra heat. So if it's really hot to begin with turning on the AC will only make it harder on your cars cooling system. If you haven't had your coolant flushed/thermostat changed in a long time you might want to try that. Also make sure there are no obstructions in front of the radiator.

Can the refrigerant freon in a home air conditioner have an odor?

Make sure it's draining properly. Condensate, if it is allowed to remain stagnant, builds up an odor. If you have built up mould in the evaporation coil, you may need to have it professionally cleaned. Freon has no odor.
