In a car the heat usually comes from engine "waste heat". You just need to be running the engine. The compressor is part of the air conditioner, which is used for cooling not heating.

the air conditioner shouldn't have anything to do with it. there could be a problem with your tires or your driving or your kid could be jumping on the seat

I have a 1993 mark viii that just does not cool down the car when running the air conditioner

Chances are your air conditioner is low or out of coolant. You can go to AutoZone, Napa, Advance Auto, or numerous other do it yourself car repair stores and have it checked out.

how do you know if the air conditioner in your car works in the winter

An air conditioner in a car uses quite a bit of power. It is not unusual for a car to hesitate when the AC comes on.

yes if someone is in the car to shut it off in case the car starts to vibrate(its bad if it vibrates)

In temp vs out temp should be about 18 degrees different if running top notch.

A joke spawned this question?

You can keep your windows open with the air conditioner running, but by doing so, you are letting the hot air in, the cold air out, wasting electricity, and causing your electric bill to be higher. If you want your windows open, it would be best to turn off the air conditioner. In a car, it is recommended to leave the windows open for a few minutes for the hot air to escape...then close the windows and enjoy.

The water you see under the car when the air conditioner is running is condensation. If you are leaking antifreeze then you need to pressure test the system and repair the leak.

Yes. If the engine is running too warm, from a lack of coolant, the ac will not work.

It could, the computer will disengage the ac compressor if the engine temp is too high.

Check to see if your condenser fan is running when a/c compressor kick on.

No. The air conditioner is driven by the engine crankshaft, so it will not turn if the engine is not running. Just so you know, you are wasting a lot of gas by driving around with your A/C engaged all the time.

Well the main reason why your car blows out cold then hot is because the air conditioner may not be working properly. You should go to the car shop and get it fixed.

Close the windows, the car will cool quicker and the A/C will shut off, conserving fuel.

No. A car heater gets its heat from the motor and uses no extra gas at all, unlike a car's air conditioner which does use more gas.

It is the water from the radiator, it is just a normal function of the car. It could also be condensation from the air conditioner, another normal function if the ac has been running.
