Default Air Conditoning A Piece Of S***

Ive owned two 6th gen maximas now, a 04 and 05. Both of them the AC and not worked. I recharged the first one one summer and by next it was empty. I sold that car and got another one only to find out this one doesnt work either. Would you recommend recharging it r getting it replace. If so can I do this myself. I know new AC can get expensive.

OK, simply recharging it doesn't fix the problem. The A/C unit is sealed, so if it is low on freon, you need to find out why. I know that one of the two A/C hoses on our cars is prone to failure. You need to have the system recharged and have them add the UV dye to the freon. Then, once it will not blow cold anymore, they can hit the engine compartment with a black light and find where the leak is.

This is assuming that all of the components work, but it will only blow warm air.

I had the same problem. A/c worked fine last year. Went to use it a few weeks ago an it blew hot air. recharged it an it would work good for a couple of days then went back to blowing hot air. Finally took it to the dealer an found out my lower a/c line had a leak. Replaced an she blows nice an cold now.. Also had the dye put in. So it will be easier for them to check next time if it stops working..

Willing to bet money that low side AC hose has a leak. Once that has is fixed you're good to go!

Actual replacement shouldn't be too difficult, but you will have to have the system evacuated and then recharged once you are done. I also wouldn't buy anything until you have the system checked and know for sure what the problem is. It will get really expensive really quickly to just randomly start replacing parts.
