I've tried browsing through the forums to find the answer I'm looking for, but had no luck.
My problem is my air conditioner isn't blowing cold air at all! When I purchased my 2001 Honda Civic back in Nov. 05, it worked great, although I never used it because winter was right around the corner. But come spring/summer time when I needed it, I'd turn the a/c on, I can here the compressor turn on and feel the air blowing but it's warm! (yes the dial was turned to cold and the A/C button was illuminated) I'd let it run for a good 30 mins but the air blowing was still warm!
Anyone think they know what's wrong? Thanks in advance.
yes you may have a leak, but you may have other issues as well. just cause you here the compressor kick on, doesnt mean its doing its job. you could have damaged valves in the compressor. you may have a faulty pressure switch. or faulty expansion valve.

take it to the freeway at 65mph or higher for at least 20 mins. make sure to keep your speed constant whatever you choose. put the cruise on and then turn to ac on full blast with the recirc button also pressed. if after 20 mins it feels a lil colder then youre prolly just low on r134a. if its the same warm air, then theres problem with the system. could be alot of things actually not just compressor.
ive done this when mine was only blowing semi cold air, by the end it was ice cold. also if the ac isnt used at least once a week to circulate the lubricants, there is a higher chance it will fail later on. not using ac the whole winter is a bad idea. remember you dont have to have the dial set to cold, you can set it to heat and still turn on ac just to keep it working properly.
Wow! You guys are quick to help! Yeah, I knew I should have ran the a/c for a bit once in a while to keep things lubricated, slipped my mind I guess. But thanks for the info, I'll get it looked at after the winter months.
