Cold Air Blows Intermittently

So you went for a road trip or a long drive, and after 30 minutes of driving realized that your AC suddenly stopped working or switched to blowing warm air.  The cold air returns shortly, and the cycle repeats itself for as long as you are driving.  What’s wrong with your car?

Intermittent cooling is often caused by the components of your vehicle’s AC system freezing up.  Typically an iced over evaporator is the culprit.  An evaporator covered in ice can’t cool the air, so you would have to wait until the ice melts, which is why the cold air eventually returns.  There may be numerous issued causing the icing – from a dirty cabin air filter to a blocked evaporator drain or an overcharged system.  Look for puddles of water under your car–this could be a sign of a freezing problem.


TAKE YOUR CAR TO A MECHANIC     AC systems can be tricky and differ from car to car, so we recommend taking your car to your local mechanic for proper diagnostics and repair.  Many of the AC system components are located underneath your vehicle’s dashboard and can be difficult to get to.  Even something as simple as a cabin air filter replacement can turn into a 3-hour project for a novice.  At Baxley’s Auto Repair, we can fix your car fast and at an affordable cost.  Give us a call today 501-794-1541  or contact us online to schedule an appointment  https://baxleysautorepair.com/appointments/
