AC

Asked by Jun 13, 2017 at 03:24 PM about the 2013 Nissan Sentra S

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I've noticed when I turn on my AC it tends to blow out hot
air but after driving my vehicle for 10mins it starts cooling
I've checked if it was low in  freon and it was perfect it
marked full ... on other vehicles I've noticed as soon as
AC is on it blow los out super cold air... I'm thinking could
it be the  condenser?

What are the high and low pressures? Some of the smaller systems take longer to cool than the larger ones. I know on my GMC it stats getting cool with in a minute even if it is 90 outside but my Dads little Pontiac it takes almost as much time as your to start blowing cold and it is at 100% with pressures at 32 low and 160 high at 70 degrees outside temps.

sounds like your ac fan is not kicking in until you drive. Turn the car on, AC on max, full blast, then open the hood and listen for the intermitten 'fan' that will kick in. That means its cooling properly. If its not kicking in, your fan or a fuse for it needs to be replaced.

Would not hurt to spray off the condenser with a garden hose and nozzle dirt and bugs on it can cause air flow restriction.
