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 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?

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