AC Not Cold Due to Pressure Hose Leak on Nissan Altima

Problem Description and Possible Solution

The AC system may blow warm air due to refrigerant loss caused by a leaking low pressure AC hose. These hoses commonly develop a leak at the hose crimp connection.

Heat works only when moving and air conditioning blows whatever temperature is outside
A/C not cool. Replaced pressure hose.
the ac just stopped blowing cold air
A/C blowing outside temp, not cold anymore.
I had a new engine put in my car in 2010 due to an engine recall and every since my car has not been the same. My air conditioner is blowing hot air I had it serviced but now Nissan is claiming I need to put over $1200 to get new hoses but I refuse to put another penny into this car. I will never purchase another Nissan!

At the shop, dreading the bill. Nissan should have issued the recall, over 200 exact issues in two years according to a friend that worked in a local dealership's service department. #stilllovemynissan
