Having an air conditioner trouble, especially in summer, will likely be a small but very constraining detail. In the city centre, you willingly open the windows of your Ford C Max to let in air, but once you get on fast roadways, it soon becomes complicated.
It could very well sometimes blow hot air although you asked it cold air, or it may well work intermittently.
You might not wish to pay repair costs without knowing if you may possibly do it by yourself to repair your Ford C Max.
The purpose of this article is to help you detect these possible problems in order to solve them as quickly as possible.
First, we will try to aim for the symptoms you identify on the air conditioning failure of your Ford C Max.
Different symptoms on your Ford C Max air conditioner
You realize that it is not any longer effective, for example:
It works in the beginning to finally only give back moisture and run out very very fast, or it works but with a really long time to cool effectively. Or even simpler, it basically does not cool down anymore.
First thing to think about at that time on your Ford C Max, it is likely that the gas charge is too short. This may very well mean that there is a probable leak in the circuit. If this were the case, we strongly encourage you to seek the advice of a specialist and not do this alone, it carries great risks for your Ford C Max and more importantly your own health.
This factor is partly owing to the wear and tear of time, but also to the quality of your air conditioning system. To put it plainly, if you have a high-end car, you are theoretically much less bothered with this type of problem.
Also check you keep the air conditioning in good state all year round.
What does that mean? Plainly use it from time to time for short moments throughout the year, which helps to avoid a “rust” of the system on your Ford C Max. It uses up slightly more fuel, but since replacing your air conditioning system is much more costly, you profit in the long run.
Different problems on your Ford C Max air conditioner
Next let’s look at some of the issues you may face on your Ford C Max. Take into account that your air conditioner system is a very elaborate system, made up of a multitude of parts that can potentially lead to failure.
First, as outlined above, you may have a gas leak and consequently no pressure in the system.
Also, it is therefore possible that your compressor is out of order. Same observation as above, it is no longer possible to compress the gas, consequently no more pressure in the system.
Attached to this compressor of your Ford C Max, a pulley allows for it to rotate. If this one were to stop working, a chain reaction would happen with the compressor stopping, and consequently as mentioned above, no gas compression, no pressure…
We realize here that everything is linked and that each piece has a vital importance, just like a chain work, a single lacking link and the entire chain is stopped.
Another sensitive point, still on the theme of pressure, if by chance a too great pressure was felt in the circuit, a sensor will then be turned on in order to stop the operation for safety. We can think about here the work of a protection fuse on the electrical circuit of your Ford C Max.
On the subject of the temperature sensor, there may as well be a failure. Just imagine that it is no longer in a position to identify the temperature of the inside of your Ford C Max. As a result, it does not know what to give the computer as information, which will lead to the air conditioning being switched off as a result of the lack of consistent data to be processed. Here again the air conditioning will have been turned off by the computer for safety reasons in order to avoid improbable situations, for example, where it is regarded as hot in your Ford C Max and sends cold when it is the opposite.
If you were to use a professional, here is an idea of the prices you would have to pay:
Let’s imagine that you recharge your air conditioning with gas, it varies from 40 to 60€.
If, on the other hand, you had to change your compressor, it would cost about 350€ new, much cheaper second-hand, around 150€.
So here is a set of problems you might face on your Ford C Max, as you thought, in most cases it is better to call on an expert to avoid potentially serious accidents. Remember that in the case of air conditioning, you work with compressed gas that is dangerous if you are not careful.
