Just like the radiator cools the water going into your engine, the condensor (located in front of the radiator) cools the refridgerant in the ac system. The temp of the radiator can directly affect the cooling efficiency of the ac. You either are having a cooling problem in the ac or in the engine. If your ac is not properly charged the heat from the radiator has a greater effect on the ac system. If you have already had this checked out, then you have a engine cooling problem. I had an explorer that did the same thing. Found out it was a two fold problem. One I had a small leak at a hose connection that would over time lower my coolant level and second,I had a thermostat that was working improperly. The thermostat was working enough to keep the eng from overheating but it was causing my water temp to run a little hotter than it should. Explorer gauges are known to not be entirely accurate so you SUV could be running a little hotter than what you think. Either one the eng cooling sys. or the ac sys. charge is nore than likely your problem. If you have a reputable shop nearby you can have your ac sys checked for a small price and sometimes free. You just need to be sure that it is a place that will tell you the truth for yu to accurately trouble shoot your problem. You could go the other route and go to a mechanic shop and have them check the cooling sys. This shouldn't cost much and yu might go ahead and have them flush it and service it if has been a while. After that is done and you still have the problem then you will know the ac needs serviced if it is still not working.

Why would the gauges quit working on buick after washing the engine?

You probably shorted something with the water, check your fuses, replace any that are "blown". If the fuse "blows" again then start disconnecting connectors on the engine and get "all" the water out and replace fuse again. Not a good idea to hose down an engine especially if it's hot. you get water on a "very hot" exhuast pipe and you may crack it. TommyTrouble

The thermostat on your 96 blazer goes to 240 then to 180 it blows cold air then hot why?

It's worn and sticking, once it gets hot enough it breaks loose and opens then it sticks again until it gets so cool that it breaks loose again, closes and lets the engine warm up. Replace the thermostat before you overheat and cause severe engine problems.

How do you fix the blower on your 1991 ford explorer so the ac blows cold air?

The blower is common to hot and cold air. If it is only cold air that is a problem, then the problem is not the blower motor. The blower motor is actually in the engine compartment, passenger side at the firewall.
