PONTIAC SUNFIRE AIR CONDITIONER PROBLEM

2002 Pontiac Sunfire

Air Conditioning problem
2002 Pontiac Sunfire 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 125000 miles

My air conditioner works really good as long as I am driving 40+mph, the minute I stop or slow down to much the temperature gauge starts going up and the air conditioner blows hot air. I got an oil change and they said my coolant was low and it seemed to work ok for 2weeks but now it is getting hot again. I have checked for leaks and nothing. What is going on with this thing?

The air conditioner blows hot air if the cooling system in your car is not cooling down the engine, so there's something wrong with your cooling system. There are several possibilities: coolant level is low, water pump is broken and therefore not circulating the coolant throughout the engine block, radiator cooling fan motor is broken, or the thermostat that switches on the radiator cooling fan is broken. Good luck.
