I'll start by saying that I am a single mom with 4 children, so I am attempting to fix this problem myself due to finances. I have a 2000 Ford Taurus SE with 133,000 miles and I have no idea the engine size other than it's a V-6.
The problem is that my a/c blows HOT air ALL the time.
The a/c fan turns on and blows properly based on whether it is set on max or low. The air blows out of the vents fine. The temperature adjustment is functioning, as far as setting it from 60 up to 90 degrees. But, it blows the same degree of "hot" no matter if it's set on 60 or 90.
I guess what I am saying is that the a/c seems to be working just fine. It's just not obeying the temperature setting AT ALL!
One other thing that may matter--the a/c worked wonderfully up until about 8 or 9 months ago. I slammed my brakes HARD to avoid hitting someone (which I DID avoid). At the time (early morning) my a/c was off (although I had used it the day before), but later that day I turned it on and it no longer blew cold air. I don't know if something slipped loose or if this is just a coincidence, but it was very obvious to me that it happened at the same time.
If someone can help me figure out how to fix this (hopefully myself) I would be incredibly grateful! Texas is HOT this time of year and the kids and I absolutely dread having to go anywhere :(
Thank you. If you need anymore information please just let me know and I will try to give it to you.
have the same problem?
