This could mean that your heater core is going bad. Had the same problem with my Dodge ram 1500. It could also mean that the AC compressor clutch is slipping. It may only slip when it is first turned on because then it tries to goes from zero RPM to normal speed in a split second.
turn on the ac and open the door or window
The ac pump may be seized up.
turn the car on
bad alternator or ground to ac compressor
What do you mean smoke test? If u mean a hot box, roll a few fattys, roll up the windows, turn of the ac, and let er rip
If you have the defroster on, the ac comes on automatically.
You have a blocked radiator.
yes it does AC needs some power from engine so it happens....
The engine may be in need of a tune up.
the ac in the car cools, the fact you have set a higher temperature than the ambient tempereature means that the car's heater is working and so is the ac, if you wish to heat up your car, turn the ac off.
Check the driver belt, tensioner and the a/c clutch and compressor.......
Did you check the AC fluid? That is sometimes the problem.
The idle is set too low or there is an electrical problem
if you are in a car turn on the ac or have a portable fan with you
If its dropping RPM's when u turn ur AC on then u need to clean ur Mass Airflow Sensor which will be located on the intake. Use B12
when the AC is on it puts more stress on the engine cause the engine has to now turn the compressor. which in turn adds more heat to the engine.
The AC takes the moisture out of the cabin air and that helps clear the inside of the windshield from moisture faster.
Yes, when the engine heats up or the AC is turned on.
My best guess is your AC belt is in bad shape and tightens when you engage the AC/Defrost.
When I turn my AC on sometimes they come on and sometimes dont, causing it to overheat. I checked the fans by hotwiring from the battery and they turned on everytime.
smoke coming from a/c vent indicates that the heater core is leaking and needs to be replaced.this smoke is hot antifreeze, it will not cause a fire but it does stink and will eventually cause car to overheat
Sometimes it is under the car on the front passenger side, the other is on top.
Look for a vacuum blockage or a vacuum leak.
takes extra RMP to turn the compressor. therefore loss in power.
No, the pump runs on AC current the battery supplies DC current. Yes, but you will need an inverter to turn the DC current into AC current
