My Air Conditioning Just Went Out In My Civic Help

Posted in Internal Engine Parts

I have a 2000 Honda Civic, and the air conditioning just stopped working on the way home. It was working perfectly, then suddenly it started blowing hot air. Not just “less cold” air, I mean HOT air (it was probably 95 degrees outside). The engine was not overheated. Honda wants to charge $90 for a diagnostics test, and if it’s going to cost more than a few hundred dollars to fix we probably won’t fix it.

Has anyone had a similar experience and can estimate what’s wrong and what it would cost? If you need any further details, I’ll check back! Thanks!

      Sounds like it is low on Freon and needs a recharge, there is a pressure switch on the compressor which shuts it off when pressure goes to low,, dont take it to a dealer, take it to a AC place,

      With the cost of R134a and equipment needed no one is going to fix one less the $100

      Three really common problems with the Honda civic a/c system. 1. a/c condenser fan isn’t working 2. a/c condesner has a leak 3. low freon…90% of the time those are the three causes for A/C failure
