Question by  fervidbulldog (34)

Will either high or low levels of freon cause my air conditioning to freeze up?

My car's a/c isn't working properly, and I've checked the freon levels. They seem to run a bit low, perhaps due to a leak. Could this be the cause?


Answer by  bug57 (1048)

Yes, not having enough freon will cause the A/C to work incorrectly. System pressure will not be within range and thus not cool the car.

It is normal for your low side ac line going to your compressor to freeze up this is an indication your ac is properly working. If your freon is low, yes there is a leak also if your freon level is high your ac will not work.

Buy a kit to test the air pump pressure. Put freon in and see if the a/c works. Check that it's even sucking the freon from the can.

The freon level in your vehicle is critical to the air conditioning system. Low freon can cause a system to "ice" or freeze up.Service system to proper specifications.

If your a/c system has either too low of a refrigerant pressure or too high the the system will more than likely not work. You should really have a a/c professional take a look at it.

No freon does not affect your air condition. You may want to ask your local dealership service center because you may just have a car that will automatically change it for your cause they didn't make freon like they do on in cars today. the best choice is that. or ask pep boys

In a word, yes. The a/c compressor is a motor which requires oil for lubrication and if too much of it leaks out the compressor will seize. Too much freon will overpressurize the system and you can blow seals.
