View Full Version : A/C problem Alero 2000

10-19-2004, 11:25 AM
One day i went to turn on my a/c and it just didnt do anything. the little light turned on, but nothing. it doesnt appear that the compressor turns on either.

that day or the day before (not sure) i noticed a puddle of something under my car (didnt recognize the smell) and it took a day or 2 to evaporate. I havent taken time to look into it yet, but i am guessing that maybe i had a hose or something bust a leak. it worked fine one day and then didnt the next.

i suppose i can look at it more when i am fixing the lower intake gasket and replacing the fuel filter (among other things)

just wanted to know if you guys had any ideas, i appreciate the help

I am not an A/C expert, but I think the compressor may know that it is out of refridgerant and shut itself down to avoid damage.

My guess is that you have a leak that needs to be repaired and the system recharged.
