A/C problem

(I have had my 2016 Hyundai Tucson not blowing cool air for a while now. Been reading that this is a common problem. Not wanting to take it to the nearest dealer who didn't/doesn't inspire any confidence, I've had to wait until today to visit one an hour away.

But looking at some of the dashboards that were apparently ripped open (TucsonTony ?) I hesitated. I kept postponing my visit and got by by rolling down the windows every 5 minutes for commutes within the city and I knew it was an inelegant solution and not for long drives on interstates. This was bugging me no end and spoiling my otherwise a super enjoyable car experience.
)

Took it in. Was out in roughly an hour and a half. The service guy put in freon and it passed a leak test. I have been advised to visit a week later to make sure there are still no leaks when they apparently use a UV light to detect for the same.

Of course it was all covered under warranty. The change was immediate, and the A/C is back to normal now. I will update about ten days later.

Keep eye on it... seeing them with holes in evaporator core (out come whole dash and HVAC box), and discharge hose off compressor leak... Hyundai only pay us 3.5hr for gutting car and replace evaporator and re-charge.. got to see the car during repair.. slide the poor tech something to make up for his/her lost time

You aint done yet..

Try this, set it to automatic climate control and keep the temp at 69-70 using outside air. See if that doesn't keep you in cool air.....Mine was blowing warm air also while set on A/C and the temp at Low......Since using the auto climate control, no further problems (knock on wood).

Let's just keep our fingers crossed it's not your evaporator core. Replacing it did resolve the problem but the lasting dealership experience was horrible.

thank you!

just confirming you didn't have to go through replacing the compressor by ripping apart the dash route, right?

Usually the only component requiring the removal of the dash is your evaporator.

No, I took it to my dealer, they found no leaks and freon level was correct. They suggested that I run it as stated and so far so good.....Been a few months now.

thanks, TT!

also, is there a time-frame, a sure-shot sign that signals the eventual replacement of the evaporator/compressor? i mean how long does one wait? or in other words what caused yours finally to be replaced? i am assuming you must have gone topping off the freon levels route to begin with.

Hard to pin a time frame on s slow leak but there are signs. Mine happened on a 500 mile trip last October. AC started blowing warm so I switched it off for a couple of hours. After which, it started blowing cold again for the remainder of the trip. On the way back home, it started blowing warm air again. Popped the hood to discover solid ice on the low side AC line just prior to going into the firewall, (evaporator). From my Mazda technician days, I knew it was usually the sign of a leak, (moisture introduced into a sealed system will usually freeze with ice blocking the normal flow of refrigerant). Turning it off again allowed it to thaw returning cooler air. It wasn't until the following Texas December, (80+) that it finally stopped blowing cold air all-together. If it turns out that it's your evaporator, stress to the service writer that you want the best and most qualified person doing the job.
