A/C Problem?

5 posts in this topic

I've seen a few posts about some kind of cold/cool problem with the A/C. What exactly is that problem? I have taken a few longer trips where, by the end of a 1-2 hour drive the A/C blower seems to be blowing less and the air coming through, while cool, is not as cold. Is that the same thing or something different? I also read that it's due to a batch of bad or faulty condensers? Should I have mine replaced or does the condenser just eventually run out of charge?

You should have yours checked, especially since it is getting colder and you have little time to troubleshoot.

Fudge. What is it with me and air systems? I swear the last three cars I've had have all had some kind of A/C problem creep up on me. Are A/C systems really that hard to get right? Or have I just had extremely bad luck?

Bad luck! ;) But seriously, as Greg said, get it checked, or better yet, get it documented first, by calling the GM consumer line, tell them your concerns, and get an SR# (Service Request)#. They will guide you from there.

Visit the thread in the recall/tsb topic about the slew of a/c problems. On certain Sparks, some owners have had the evaporators freeze up after running it for awhile. There's a update for the bcm (body control module) that's supposed to address this issue. Print it up and bring it with you when you go to the dealer, since many dealers don't know how to fix these cars.
