What would be the cause of the AC fan not coming on - car overheating - and freon smell when the car is started?

Faulty radiator cooling fan switch or circuit; Worn or damaged cooling fan motor or circuit; Broken, missing, or defective fan blade(s); Incorrect operation information being delivered and sent from the EEC (ENGINE CONTROL COMPUTER).

Yes, If vehicle overheats it may cause freon (refrigerant) to blow out

no it has a safeguard to prevent overheating the compressor

Yes, freon can indeed cause corrosion. Freon leaks in vehicles can corrode surrounding parts and components in the car over time.

Some started in 1992 but most all started in 1993...........

Excessive freon may cause the compressor to"slug" (Seize)

R 134 is freon gas. In small amounts, the exposure to freon gas is not dangerous. In larger amounts, freon can cause respiratory issues.

Either low on freon or the low pressure switch is bad. You are gonna have to put a set of gauges on it. Usually this happens when the freon leaks out of the system. If there is not enough freon in the system, the low pressure switch keeps the compressor from coming on and being burned up.

the air coming from the vent is warm

Freon is not toxic unless enough of it is drank. It will not kill a human to inhale it, but it might cause dizziness or nausea.

A leak is the only way to loose volume of the freon charge. Freon is in a sealed system and it does not get used up. If your system is tight the freon will last forever. However a restriction in the freon lines can cause the freon pressure on the low side to look like it is low but the freon is really stacking up in the condensor.

Any of the following could cause this........ 1. Low on freon.. 2. Condenser fan not working.. 3. Compressor not coming on..

A Freon leak can cause you headaches and nausea but not cause severe health issues. You should have the leak repaired by a qualified professional as soon as possible.

User Avatar

no, losing the manual would not cause the car to use freon.

User Avatar

the port to add freon is under the car in front of engine coming off the compressor hard to get to but can be done

User Avatar

It`s pressure rises continual heating will cause it to decompose.

my son's car is a 98 Altima and does not have cool air coming through yet the blower does work will -- if it just freon benng needed. How do we locate the air jnit?

on the biggest line coming from the a/c compressor.

User Avatar

The line that you fill freon to in a car is known as the fill line. Going past the line can cause overflow, or even damage your vehicle.

User Avatar

Yes it can cause you to become dizzy,light headed and sleepy from what i understand after talking to the EPA. We are having a problem with freon leaking into our home with small children present after faulty work on our central air system.

Your car uses refrigerant not Freon. Freon is a brand name put out by DuPont. All ac systems use refrigerant often mistakenly called Freon. All of them!!! Check for a decal under the hood or on the compressor for the information you seek. I believe that around 1996 car makers started using R-134A instead of R-12 refrigerant. Hope this helps.

Check the Freon pressure first. The AC compressor will not turn on if the Freon pressure is too low.

Low freon, likely means you have a leak.
