    Car Air Conditioning

    About a month ago or so, the ladies car started sporadically blowing out warm, humid air for about 30 seconds at a time every 15 minutes or so. It is now to the point where it is blowing out warm humid air constantly, and blows out cold air for about 30 seconds every 15 minutes or so.

    I'm by no means a car expert, but my first though is that the system may need to be recharged and may have a leak is losing freon. Anyone have any ideas and/or recommend any places to go to get service done?

    Spend the $30 - $40 on one of those do it yourself kits. They work pretty good if there isn't a leak.


    I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

    Re: Car Air Conditioning

    If it happen sporadically at first, I have a hard time believing it's a freon issue. I would be inclined to think it's either the AC unit shutting off or the belt needs to be replaced. or both, but I am no mechanic.

    If you ask the basketball analysts outside the state of Iowa I think you would be surprised to hear their responses. Iowa was pegged as a preseason top 5 team by one ESPN analyst and is ranked in the vast, vast majority of preseason top 25 polls

    Yah, compared to the $75-80 a garage would ask for to charge your A/C, this is a good route. It's super easy, too.

    Freon. Or if its a newer car it might be a filter

    Please check to make sure your ac unit is even working first, examine the belt for cracks and wear. Could save you $30-$40 from a recharge.
