A/C NOT WORKING PROPERLY

1998 Honda CRV

Air Conditioning problem
1998 Honda CRV 4 cyl All Wheel Drive Automatic

I have a 98 CRV, during the summer when we start the A/C, it does not blow the air as much as it used to, it feels like it is hardly blowing at all, therefore, my kids in the back seat can not feel the air at all. During the winter we have the same problem with the heat. What is the problem?

Hi def127,

You need to check for
1. Bad/weak blower motor
2. Clogged evaporator cooling fins
3. Leaking air passages.

Does the blower fan motor sound loud at max speed?

When I have the fan on it sounds like it is on high, but feels like it is on low.

Hi def127,

So the motor is working hard but the air flow is weak.

Check for air flow leaks and clogging or air passages. Is there any air escaping from other vents like the defroster etc?

Might be clogging of the air flow fins in the evaporator.

I had the same problem with my crv
I checked the cabin air filter located behind the glove box and there was no doubt in my mind where the problem was.
The filter was so plugged I'm surprized any air was getting through at all.
Changed the filter and no more problem.
