Air Conditoner

Asked by Corey Jul 11, 2019 at 09:33 AM about the Mazda MAZDA3

Question type: General

Hi All,
So my 2009 Mazda 3 A/C seems to only work for laterally only a few minutes in the morning, it seems once the engine gets warm, the A/C compressor doesn't kick on like it does when the engine is cool and whatever cool air was blowing slowly gets less cool, then eventually no cold air.  I had recently recharged my lines with refrigerant any suggestions please and thanks !!

1 Answer


Refrigerant in an aerosol can isn't something that you should use as it doesn't contain an AC lubricant. Beyond that, you probably have a leak. So it could be that the refrigerant is low and needs to be recharged after the leak if repaired. Or it could be a defect in the compressor, or the high or low pressure switch, the clutch relay, or activation switch, or something else.
