I have a 98 firebird formula (171k) auto -- this morning I noticed the A/C was working at full blast but later in my hour drive I turned it back up (to level 2) and very little cold air was coming out of it (it is VERY hot and humid in FL - got to work sweating) -- when I turned the A/C on higher (to 3 and 4) I could hear a loud noise from under the hood so I turned it back down, right before I got to work much more air started coming out when I turned the A/C higher (again to 2-3-4) -- I pooped the hood after turning the engine off and it did sound like "air" was being expelled near the A/C hoses but I do not know if this is the normal sound the A/C makes when engine is shut off - ive never had an A/C problem before
what could be the problem here? I just put coolant in the unit myself a month or so ago and everything was working fine until this morning -- id like to fix the problem myself if possible --- any suggestions/recommendations?
have the same problem?
