AIR CONDITION

2003 Honda CRV • 145,000 miles

I HAVE A 2003 CRV, AC IS COLD ONLY WHEN DRIVING. STOPS COOLING AS SOON AS I STOP AT A LIGHT OR STOP SIGN. AT THE LIGHT OR WHEN STOPPED IT DRAWS POWER FROM ENGIN WHEN THE COMPRESSOR TURNS ON. I'M MECHANICALLY INCLINED BUT AC IS REALLY NOT MY STRONGEST AREA.

Does the engine run hot if it sits and idles?If not sounds like your ac condensor fan isnt working.

Engine WAS running hot before so I changed the thermostat. Perhaps it wasn't even the thermostat? It has over heated a couple of time since. It was challange to change that thing because it was underneath the manifold. I checked the fan before, it was working, i'll double check it. Thanks for the reply.

You welcome if the thermostat is good I would be looking at the fan especially with ac shutting off and engine overheating.
