They put a new AC compressor on. And I put 2 cans of AC coolant and repair AC leak. And it stills blows hot air. Not hot as in hot hot but just air from the outside. Say it's cold outside then it will blow hot air, say it's hot outside and only hot air will come out. Before all this I noticed that when I push on the gas cold air would come out. But if I stopped at a red light the AC would stop giving cool air and start throwing hot air. But once I would step on the gas. It would start throwing cold air again. I don't know what seems to be the problem.
Filled the air up with Freon and it worked for 3 days then the driver side vents started blowing out hot air then after another two days the passenger side started doing it also.

All the sudden my AC just stopped working with no warnings. I went to use it after the winter and all it does it put out hot air.

My A/C only blows hot air. At first it only blew cold air from the passenger dash vent but all the vents are blowing hot air now. I have used a can of AC Pro. Scared to take it too the shop since I have had so many other costly issues with this vehicle.

ac has been knocking for some time. recently it just went out completely and blows warm air. sometimes at night when the temp is cooler the ac appears to blow cold air so I guess you could say the problem is intermittent.

My air conditioner worked all winter but when I tried to use it this summer, hot air blows out of all of the vents except one which is only cool air. Have not got it fixed yet

First the driver side vents started blowing hot air. A couple months later, the passenger side went out. I went for an oil change and the line was frosted over. I went to have freeon added to the unit and was told the compressor was out but it is still blowing hot air...I am trying to replace the air blend actuator to get cool air. When some of the freeon was put in the line the air did get cooler.
